Feng Shui Color & Five Elements 1of 2

By now, many of you are familiar with the “Chinese art of object placement” or better known as Feng Shui.

Its objective is to harness positive “Chi” (energy) and deflect the negative, in order to balance an environment. When the Chi is balanced, it can improve health, relationships and financial prosperity. But did you know that COLOR plays essential role in this 5000 year-old tradition?

Thanks to modern technoligy, sicentest are able to make sense of the ancient formuls on what Feng Shui is based on. We’re all familiar with radio waves and electronic devices that transmit sound waves for television and radio. Color also has a vibrational energy. Each color has a different wavelength; red is the longest visable light wave while violet is the shortest.

Red gives you the biggest bang for your Yuan!
For example, red having the longest visable light wave and consequently the most powerful color, has been used for centuries by Feng Shui Masters to cultivate positive Chi. Red is commonly used on the doors of businesses to attract more money into the establishment.

In Feng Shui each color is associated with one of the Five Elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. The elements are used in specific areas according to the Feng Shui principles, to balance an environment. The Five Elements are also deeply rooted in traditional Chinese medicines; they are the foundation of Acupuncture, Acupressure and Herbology.

  1. Denise, I had always wondered why red was used so predominantly in chinese culture, now I know.

    However, being in a red room seems agitating to me, e.g. I once bought a home in Atlanta and the eat-in kitchen area had red wallpaper. One of the first things we did was replace it with a more soothing color.
