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

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 candeepearson@fivestarfengshui.com http://www.fivestarfengshui.com

Feng Shui and Broken Items

Do you find that you have a lot of items that need to be broken or repaired?  If you feel overwhelmed by items like this I would recommend a system to repair them or remove them from your life.

Items that are broken or not use-able correlate to stuck energy.  In order to maximize your success everything needs to be in working order.  Which means that these broken items could manifest as financial issues, poor health, difficulty in relationship with others, feelings of disorganization, overwhelm and frustration and many many more.  

One system is to put all those items in a box, and make a plan to fix one a day/week/month; if you can’t fit those items in a box, decide to get rid of one or some.

Remember that the goal is to achieve the most supportive energy for you and your success.

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.
