Chinese and other spiritual traditions believe that wind and water are the two first element of five that are sacred. Feng Shui is literally translated as ‘wind and water’, so you can see the need to balance their environment with these elements. Feng Shui is also related to the ‘yin and yang’ principle of two opposing forces, being in alignment to bring happiness and peace. Following are some Feng Shui Bedroom colors you may want to consider.
In the Feng Shui philosophy, pink symbolizes love. A pink bedroom may reignite feelings of love and passion in a relationship. Use only light shades of pink in a bedroom and avoid shades with a red undertone, which can change the energy from yin to yang. Do not use reddish-pink colors in the bedroom if you are prone to insomnia or mental restlessness at night, because red is a stimulating color.
White is the most neutral yin color and may be helpful when decorating a bedroom for resale. And of course, white represents calm confidence. It is often used with more opulent metallic accents of silver or gold to create a serene and poised atmosphere.
Light shades of blue appeal to the person who enjoys using her bedroom as a spiritual retreat. Blue is a yin color that promotes meditation, healing, and relaxation. Feng Shui also associates blue with a sense of exploration and adventure, because the sky and the sea are blue. However, couples who have difficulty with intimate communication or people who are prone to depression should not use blue in the bedroom.
Purple is the yin color most closely related to spiritual awareness. Light, blue-based shades of purple in a bedroom may promote mental and physical healing and spiritual growth. Avoid red-based shades of purple in order to minimize yang energy.
