How to Use the Power of Color

By Erica Sofrina, Founder - West Coast Academy of Feng Shui and  author of the book Small Changes, Dynamic Results! Feng Shui for the Western World

What is it about color that is so powerful? Most of us feel passionately about some and are repelled by others. Maybe you adored royal blue at one time but now feel a deep need to surround yourself with earth tones? Do you wonder if this yearning comes from a deeper place and why it changes over time?

The ancient art of Feng Shui acknowledges the profound affect of color on our physical, emotional and spiritual well being. Colors are connected to the five elements from the natural world; fire, earth, metal, water and wood. They play a significant role in balancing and healing every aspect of our lives. In paying attention to the colors we are attracted to, we are tuning into our body’s natural instincts to balance something that is out of balance in our energy field. Once this is brought back into balance, healing can take place.

This is called the Five Elements theory and it is at the foundation of Feng Shui and Chinese medicine. These elements have objects, shapes, seasons, body organs and colors connected to them, but today we will concentrate on color. We will look at why you are drawn to certain ones and how working with them can assist you in balancing  and healing many aspects of your life.
