Are you wearing the best colors for your energy?
According to the ancient art and science of feng shui, you have colors that support you, as well as colors that drain your energy. This applies to both colors you are wearing as clothing and accessories, as well as the ones of your home decor. This personal feng shui color selection is based on the theory of five feng shui elements; it assigns each one of us a specific feng shui element. Because these elements are expressed as colors, you have colors that are good for you, meaning they support and nourish you; and you also have colors that tend to weaken your personal energy.
There are five elements in feng shui — Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water — and your energy is described by one of these elements. This feng shui element, also called your personal birth element, is determined by your year of birth. As Lunar New Year starts on a different day each year, check to be sure you know your correct year of birth for feng shui purposes.
Once you know your personal feng shui birth element, scroll down and find the colors that are best for you, as well as the colors to limit or avoid. Note that if a color is in the “Colors To Avoid” column, this does not mean you have to avoid it completely, just do not wear it too often. If a color is not listed in either one of the columns below, this means this color is neutral to your energy. If you love color yellow, know that feng shui-wise, this color can express two different elements, Fire and Earth, depending on its saturation. A strong saturated yellow color is a Fire element color (and is good for Fire and Earth element people); and a soft, butter yellow color expresses the Earth element (and is good for Earth and Metal people). Orange color has the same dynamic, it can be a fiery color, and it can also be an earthy color; use your own judgment to define the intensity of a yellow or orange color.
