Colours and Their Effects

Colours like the elements they are associated with, are also identified to specific sectors and directions. A simple combination of colours can also be equate to a combination of the elements these colours are asociated with. Thus , a simple combination of say, red and yellow is equivalent to fire and earth , which is a productive sequence. On the other hand a combination of yellow and black which is equivalent to earth and water is inauspicious as earth is deemed to destroy the water , a destructive sequence.

A specific colour when applied to the sector housing the element which is associated with that colour, is also considered auspicious as this is known as the ‘agreeing’ sequence . Similarly, when a specific colour is applied to a sector housing the element which will result in the sector’s element to grow - example when white is applied to north (water), this sector is now deemed to have been enhanced , as metal when melted down becomes liquid and emits vapors (water), such as in metal produces water a productive sequence. On the same score, when a certain colour is applied to a sector housing an opposing element a destructive sequence is created - for example , when metallic or white colour is applied to the east , thus bringing metal into wood , where the metal cuts down or destroys the wood .

Thus the colours that you choose should always be in an agreeing or growing sequence While a proper colour or a combination of colours will enhance the Feng Shui, on the contrary a wrong choice or blend of colours can bring about misfortunes or setbacks. Therefore it is imperative to ensure a proper colour or combination of colours are chosen before being applied to the premises.

According to Feng Shui perspectives, white is the mother of all colours and is also one of the main colour for toning and reducing the shades of all other colours. Thus white is sometimes known as the beginning of all colours while black on the other hand, is the terminal colour of all colours.

In the study of energy , colour is the reflection of light and energy, and where there is no light, there being no visible colour. And without light, everything will be Dark, which is represented by black. Black is therefore another basic component for mixing, blending and toning of all other colours. As such these 2 colours are the origin of all colours where white is considered Yang and black yin. This attribute is exhibited in the Pa Kua Tai Chi where the center houses the Tai Chi Circle and where the white encompasses the black dot and vice versa, thus showing the interrelation between the Yin and Yang.
