Everywhere we look we see the color green. From the color of nature to the color of the paper that we earn for our hard work. Colors are believed to influence the way we feel and even our actions. Take yellow for an example. Yellow is a happy color. Yellow represents joy, friendship and wisdom. When we imagine someone being sad or depressed, the first color that usually comes to our mind is black never yellow. Like yellow, the color green also has its meaning and effect. It is created out of a mixture of yellow and blue. It is known as the color of nature, fertility, life, well-being, growth, harmony and of course money. Green in Feng Shui is renewal, fresh energy and new beginnings. Feng Shui (pronounced “fung shway”) is the ancient Chinese practice of configuring home or work environments to promote health, happiness, and prosperity.
It has also been said that the color Green calms your nerves and balances your whole body. It helps relax us mentally as well as physically, alleviating depression, anxiety and even helps calm our nerves. That is why this lucky color is perfect for the bedroom. The bedroom is the one room in the house that we look to relax and unwind. We spend a 1/3 of our time in our bedroom, why not make it a positive experience? One that will help us wake up feeling calm and balance, ready for what the world has to bring to us each day. Let us also calm our nerves and relax our minds before going to sleep. The color green can do just that and more. Position your bed on the far side of the room facing the door. In Feng Shui, sleeping in line with the door can contribute to stress, irritability and health problems.
Since Green will be our prominent color, place a green duvet cover on the bed. If you are unable to find a solid duvet set, then choose bedding with color combinations of green and brown. These two combinations make an earthy pair. Yellow and Green is also a great combination of colors. There is nothing more wonderful than feeling relax and happy. Add a couple of plants to the room. Plants are auspicious from the point of Feng Shui. Fresh flowers also bring luck and fortune to your home. Make sure to throw away the flowers once they die. Also, mirrors placed in our surroundings absorb or reflect positive and negative energy. Never place the mirror in front of your bed unless you are willing to cover the mirror when it is time to go to bed. A mirror in front of the bed is not considered favorable since shadowy reflections of the night can cause distress. Place mirrors in front a beautiful and positive scenery. Last but certainly not least, think positive and the power of green and your thoughts combine will create a positive and happy you.
