Colors: What does Red Mean? Feng Shui Color Theory

Feng Shui Color Theory: RED

Red is one of the most powerful colors.  Red means different things in different cultures.  In Feng Shui Red is the color of fame and notoriety.  It is also a color that gets noticed.  If you wear the color red, you must be prepared for the attention that you will get.  One person that comes to mind for their powerful use of the color red is Hillary Clinton.  Nearly at all significant gatherings of her peers, she wears red, usually it’s a red suit.  She is very smart about the use of this color.  In many countries red is the color which ladies get married in…the color of love, think of red hearts.

In Feng Shui color theory red means energy, good luck, courage, passion, marriage, faith and communication. The emotions that it is associated with include anger, irritation, passion, courage and outrage.

The ideal location for the color red is nearly always in the middle back wall, as you stand in the doorway looking inside, this is the Fame area of any room or generally in your home, check out the Bagua map for more clarification.

My next tips will talk about other specific colors and their meanings.  A great book about color is Living Color Master Lin Yun’s Guide to Feng Shui and the Art of Color by Sarah Rossbach and Lin Yun

Sell Your House Quick with Feng Shui: Get the Edge on Your Competition

Are you finding yourself in a world where there are a lot of houses for sale, and you need to sell ASAP?  Where are the buyers and how do you find them?Having a good marketing plan is essential.  But the most important component is making the house the most appealing and desireable compared to its competition.  In order to get the edge on your competition there are simple tips that can be used:

  1. Clean everything thoroughly
  2. Remove clutter such as papers, pictures, magazines, garbage etc.
  3. Fix all broken, scratched, or damaged items
  4. Remove excess storage, rent a storage unit if you have to; everything must be super organized, even the garage
  5. Remove excess furniture, less is more.  Orient the sitting part of the furniture so that you see the seat first, not the back of a chair or sofa.
  6. Organize each room to its fullest potential.  The master bedroom needs a luxurious bed with pillows and bedding that encourages that relaxing decadent feeling.  It’s organized, clean, and welcoming.  A room that could be an office or bedroom should have the appearance of a fully functioning office or bedroom.  Imagine how it could best be utilized and stage it in that capacity.
  7. Clean up the entire yard and make it look appealing. Mow lawn, rake leaves, trim bushes, plant annuals or perennials and organize the garden shed. Make it obvious where the front door is located, by having a path, mailbox, house numbers, welcome mat, wind chimes, plants or other artwork.

Home staging and professional landscaping are proven tools that can sell a home on average 40% faster and 10% higher!  Most of the time all you have is time to get prospective buyers to feel like they could enjoy living there and that there are no significant reasons they feel any negativity.  You need to make the best first impression, so EVERYTHING must look PRETTY.

One book that can help is: Sell Your Home Faster with Feng Shui…  by Holly Ziegler.  She has an expanded version of these ideas.

For only $65 for an hour consultation I can help you to make the best first impression.  Contact Candee Pearson 970-764-5615 or email

Which Direction Should I Sleep?

I get asked a lot, is it good for my head to be pointing a certain direction? Since this method of Feng Shui is known as the Compass Method, to me it’s not as important as having your head against the solid wall and that the bed is as far away from the doorway as possible. The method of Feng Shui that I practice is called the Black Hat Sect (BTB) which is based on the idea about how the energy flows through doorways and around your home or office. There are many types of Feng Shui, but I think that the BTB is the most realistic and works in our modern times.

The keys to the most peaceful sleep include:

  • Removing items that plug into outlets.
  • Making sure no mirrors reflect over the bed as you sleep.
  • Closing all doors while you sleep.
  • No storage under the bed.
  • Each person has their space for books & bedside lamp & table.
  • Calming pictures
  • Calming colors
  • Thinking in terms of two’s if you are a couple; i.e. 2 pillows, 2 lamps etc
  • Being able to see who’s coming in the doorway.
  • Clutter free.

I know you may be curious what the Compass method says about the sleeping directions, so here is what they say:

Head pointing North=Enhancing physical Manifestations and Balance.

Head pointing South=Enhancing Ability to Remember Dreams and Develop Intuition.

Head pointing East=Speeds Life Up (good for depression and sluggishness).

Head pointing West=Slows Life Down (good for stress and hyperactivity).

Feng Shui Bagua…Abundance, Wealth & Success

The Bagua is the feng shui map that I use to help increase the intentions for all.
This simple map is used to figure out what kinds of items would be the best in the certain bagua.
The bottom of the map(self knowledge, journey & helpful people) will be the location of the front door.  Place the map on the floor at the front door with the threshhold on the line at the bottom of the paper.  Most front doors are located in the middle of the house, thus the journey/career area of the bagua.  But you would divide the house evenly into 9 quadrants based on the location of the front door.
For wealth and success the most important bagua is the abundance corner, which end up being in the far left corner of the house, relative to the front door.  All the tips for wealth and success would be perfect in this corner.  You can also use the bagua for each room, the entryway of each door is the same as for the front door.   So if you want to increase your wealth and success, you can put those items like coins, money frogs, collections of items in this abundance corner of each room.  This will really help your focus on this intention.
Have a great day!

Feng Shui Bagua, The Roadmap for Your Successful Energy

The Bagua is the feng shui map that I use to help increase the
intentions for all.

This simple map at is the
basic “roadmap” for all decisions. Feng Shui as an ancient
Chinese study of energy and how it flows through a physical space.
One of the discoveries is that there is a predictable pattern
between physical locations in your home or office that relate to
aspects of your life. Thus, there is a specific location or room
in your home that relates to your relationships, another to your
prosperity and another to your career. If your home is an odd
shaped layout, i.e. not a rectangle or square, a part of the bagua
may be missing, so energy may not flow to that part of your life.
If another part of your home gets a lot of energy that area of your
life blossomes. Thus the map will help with whichever intention or
area of your life you would like to focus on.

Balance is the key! To bring in the harmony and balance into all
areas of your life lay this map on the floor at your front door
with the bottom line on the map at the threshhold of the door.
Things to be specifically aware of are the location of an attached
garage, my relationship area is in my garage, so I have put up some
pink hearts and posters to give it attention. The location of your
bathrooms and fireplaces are also key. If you have a fireplace in
your water (journey & career) area that can create a confused or
heated water energy. If your bathrooms are located in your fire
(fame) area it douses your fire energy. Generally you want all
your element areas to be clear with only items that relate to that
element. For example in your fire area you only want candles, a
fireplace or other things that represent fire. There are a lot of
these elements that I don’t want to confuse you, if you really feel
that you have a specific inbalance in your life this is where a
consultation can really help.

The Bagua is the key to understanding Feng Shui and predictable
energy. These are some basic concepts to be aware of. Check out
the map and consider your intentions and life goals. An hour
consultation can be quite helpful in clearing up any conflicting
energy patterns. More information about consultations.
