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.
