Colors: How can I use them to Support My Goals?

Color is powerful!  What are your favorite colors?  Do you use your favorite colors in your home, clothing or landscaping?   Are you afraid you’ll pick the wrong colors?  Our goal is to find those colors that make you say, “I love the color I chose to paint my house”.  Or that you get repeated compliments about your favorite shirt. Utilizing the power of colors can really help achieve your goals, especially when your favorite shirt gets you  compliments and you feel great about yourself; now that’s  power we all want and deserve.

I recently heard someone describe an average, nondescript image as beige.  Beige is being used as a default, when you may be uncertain about what colors you really like, or timid  to display your true personality for fear that your friends will think negative thoughts.  Beige and white are the default colors in the United States…WHY?  What if it was green or blue?  Why is it that we surround ourselves in our indoor environments with a single default color?  Our eyes are not used to this monochrome scheme.  In nature we see green grass, blue sky, brown dirt, red leaves and white snow.  We are used to seeing a variety of colors and that soothes our psyche.  To be contained in a room that has no color variation can cause irritation.

Therefore, the goal is to figure out what your favorite colors are.  When you look at your house, landscaping or the clothes you’re wearing and say,”I just love how those colors make me feel”  or “I feel so powerful in this red dress”.  Eliciting those powerfully positive feelings with your favorite colors is a goal of Feng Shui  which will, in turn, help achieve major shifts in your life.

My next tips will talk about the 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

De-Clutter Regularly

In many homes, the single biggest feng shui problem is clutter!

Clutter is both a cause and a symptom of stale, stuck energy. It blocks the smooth flow of chi through your space, weighs you down energetically, and keeps you stuck in the past.  Clutter makes it very difficult to make changes, take advantage of new opportunities, or welcome new friends and experiences into your life.

Clutter also makes it harder to keep your house clean. In feng shui terms, dirt and dust are a form of clutter because they clog up the flow of chi just as effectively as a glut of personal possessions does.  If you haven’t dusted in weeks and your windows haven’t been washed since last year, that dirt and dust is affecting the chi of your entire house – and your life!

A thorough cleaning and de-cluttering of your power spots is a great way to get new energy flowing to create focus and success!

One of the most obvious ways that clutter manifests is with your health.  Those people who do not regularly purge things that aren’t essential to their lives generally end up with some lung related condition.  This is where the weight usually will rest.  If you know someone who’s health is getting worse and whose issue is asthma, allergies or any kind of respiratory illness and you know that they hate to get rid of possessions…this is how clutter really gets your health and why it’s important to purge often or have a plan around organization.
