Clothes wear us, we don’t wear them. As clothing is our second skin, it is the potential colour source that’s closest to our body and acts as the main channel for carrying colour energy to the body. One of the most effective ways to bring about positive, emotional and behavioural change is with the colour of our clothes. In this context, Feng Shui works on five elements — Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal.
By using Feng shui principles in your dress, you can start each morning focusing on your goals, targets and intentions. Suppose, you put on your green shirt or handkerchief (which signifies the wood element), you can be assured of professional success. Here are some colours decoded in Feng shui:
Green: Wear to kickstart new projects successfully. It’s also the colour for creativity.
Pink: A soft romantic colour. It makes the person concentrate more on the feminine aspect of life.
Blue: Soothes and relaxes and brings attention to needs of the individual.
Brown: Wear to feel grounded and secure. Black/Dark Blue: Wearing this colour enhances communication. You must have noticed that most of the CEOs wear black or dark blue.
Red: Wear if you want to get noticed, enhance luck, or feel strong, confident and happy.
Yellow: Wear for increased self esteem and mental clarity. The hue also signifies cleanliness and helps one focus on the intellect.
Type of clothing
Your dressing/clothing affects how you feel and behave. If you are wearing formals or a suit, you won’t be able to flop down on a sofa the way you would if you were wearing jeans and a T-shirt. Floppy clothes and longer lengths make you feel relaxed and undisciplined. It is not by chance that we wear casual clothes on the weekend when we are little relaxed. If you want to make a lot of money and be more organised wear formals. When we are dressed this way our body movements becomes more controlled, upright and efficient, which in turns makes our mind more alert and efficient like the most top heads of the business houses the world over.
