The best feng shui colors to wear in 2019 are somewhat similar to the best colors for the last year, as both years share the same element — the Earth feng shui element. However, while the previous year was a Yang energy year, 2019 is of a Yin energy quality. This means that compared to the active and bold (Yang) energy of 2018 expressed in the energy of the Dog zodiac sign, the year of 2019 brings a more calm, soothing and quiet (Yin) energy. It is the year of the Pig and it starts on February 5, 2019.
"Depending on which method of feng shui you are using, the best colors for your living room could be determined by the compass direction, the five elements, or the Bagua map method," says Cerrano. "Let's say your living room faces south. In general, the suggested accent colors are within the warm scope of options: reds, red-oranges, yellows, or even pinks and purples."
The idea that feng shui is about adding things to your home has been perpetuated in our consumer-centric world. Be it frogs, roosters, ducks, crystals, or flutes, adorning one’s home with objects to bring good luck is a misconception of what feng shui is and its potential effects. Whether you are looking to overhaul your life or simply make decorative changes, there is a process. We often think that adding something new to our house or life will create needed change. But in fact, there are two steps before this. Otherwise, you will still have the current situation but with the addition of new things or situations. This is one source of clutter in our homes and overwhelm in our lives.
Untouched nature is our best example of the five elements cycle. We can see nature finding balance of birth, death, and rebirth in the animal food chain, trees competing for sunlight, seasons promoting growth and death, and even in drastic compensations in the form of forest fires and volcanic eruptions. All are necessary for survival of the species, and in the end it is about the sustainability of our planet earth. After all, without Earth maintaining its balance, all species would perish.

The jade plant is another plant commonly known as a money tree in feng shui because the round leaves symbolize good fortune. These plants are relatively hardy succulents, so they may be a better money tree choice for those challenged at keeping plants alive. Like the traditional money tree, jade plants are best placed in money, health, or fame areas of the home. You can also place them in an office space to invite success and fortune.

Nature creates a sense of peace. In fact, research shows that viewing nature reduces anger and anxiety and enhances feelings of pleasure. So flood your home with natural light, open windows and doors to let fresh air inside, and bring plants indoors. Decorate with bamboo, wood, or wicker, and use stones and rocks to add texture. You can also adorn the walls with paintings of nature and its serenity.

What a great and inspiring story! I was married for seven years without any child, because of this my husband start acting strange, coming home lately and not spending time with me any more and he divorced me. So i became very sad and lost in life because my doctor told me there is no way for me to get pregnant this really make life miserable for me. until i came across a friend who told me about DR ODION from the Internet, how he has helped a lot of women with this similar problems that i am going through so i contacted him on: ([email protected]) and explained to him. he told me all what to provide before he could cast a reunite spell to bring back my husband which i did and he sent a powerful prayer which i had to say at mid night while he cast the love spell.

I Vow to let the whole world know about DR ODION


Nell, when it comes to Feng Shui, there will be people that are skeptics and those that are fanatics. The fanatics will go through such length as to arrange and organize their stuff to improve their health, relationships, and financial status. That's where your friend belonged. It is good to believe in something and the Chinese have practiced this for the last 5 centuries and I guess there must be some truth in it!
One thing you never want to place in a dining room is a clock. The presence of a clock in this room means you could run out of abundance as the clock ticks away or winds down. Some feng shui practitioners believe a clock in the dining room will lead to a rushed meal and be unhealthy. There are several other rooms where you can place a clock in your home.
It’s important to note that cluttering is different than expansion. We are meant to expand. Our world is meant to get bigger with more experiences, more people, and perhaps even more possessions. But sustainable expansion only comes with contraction. Otherwise, we expand too much too quickly. This is what causes stress and anxiety. Before you can add new stuff to your life without becoming overwhelmed, there has to be a refining process.
This is the step we usually want to jump to first. There is something exciting about adding new things to our home or life. However, when not done with proper timing, it can end up making us feel stressed and overwhelmed. Instead of creating positive change, we end up even more clouded and confused with mental, emotional, and physical clutter than before. On occasion I have been to clients’ homes that contained very few possessions, little to no décor, and a void of any energy. This is a rare example in which skipping the first two steps and jumping to the Energize step is okay. Metal or Water types would be the more likely candidates for this scenario because they are more attuned to refining and letting go of things, as opposed to accumulating.
All plants belong to the Wood element, and experts use them as a way to balance the elemental energy of a specific area. For instance, it can help boost the energy level of an area associated with wood, or weaken an area associated with water. But of course, there are other factors to consider when balancing the five elements, which we will discuss later.
While there are plenty of resources out there to guide you to extreme feng shui dedication, this article is not one of them. Rather, we’ve included 15 simple yet effective ideas for incorporating soothing feng shui décor into your home. And, when all is said and done, remember that, just as feng shui facilitates good design, good design also enhances feng shui elements.

A chandelier is an ideal feng shui decoration for this room. Hang it in the center of the room or use a pair of smaller chandeliers over a pair of end tables. If this isn't your style, compensate with several table lamps, floor lamps, and ceiling recessed lights. These additional lighting elements will activate yang energy essential for a healthy family living room.

Use your feng shui birth element to help create a home that nourishes and supports your energy. For example, if your birth element is Fire, you can introduce the expressions of the Fire element, such as triangular shapes or the Fire colors: red, orange, purple, magenta, pink, and yellow. You will also want a strong Wood element in your home, as Wood feeds the Fire element in the productive cycle of the five feng shui elements.
The Southeast bagua area of your home or office is hosting in 2019 the feng shui star #7, which is of potentially negative energy. This feng shui star is associated with unexpected events of a challenging nature that are usually related to weakening the energy of protection (personal or home protection). The element of this visiting star is Metal, and the element of the Southeast bagua area is Wood.

All variations of rock are also considered to be Metal elements in feng shui. Different composites of rock are used to create granite, slate, and marble finishes in homes. These finishes are often used as countertops because of the compatibility of the Metal and Water elements. For example, a wood countertop would soak up water, whereas a granite countertop is impervious to water and is able to maintain its integrity. This is the same reason metal is used for plumbing fixtures and even copper plumbing lines.

“In feng shui, these trucks just gave off a form of Qi. It is this type of Qi that gives you the edgy feeling when you drive next to it. It is the kind of invisible pressure you feel when you’re right next to a bigger object or within a narrow space. Low ceilings, low hanging chandeliers, and huge furniture also tend to give off this form of Qi, but you will feel it only when you’re right under these objects or very close to it.”
Feng shui decorating can be fun and powerful (when you know what you are doing, of course!) The term “feng shui decorating” means different things to different people, especially because there are so many stereotypes attached to feng shui. At its best, good feng shui decorating creates a harmonious, beautiful and happy space with appropriate energy for its use; be it a home, an office or a garden. 

The metal element helps cultivate strength, focus, and independence. Most of the metal decorations in my home are beautiful ornate vases and candle holders that I’ve found at flea markets and thrift stores. One of my favorites is the one you see above, which I filled with hand-painted feathers. Some other ways to incorporate the metal element are through picture frames, sculptures, and wind chimes. Round shapes can be used as an expression of the metal element, as well as the colors white and gray. Feng shui bagua areas of the North, West, and Northwest are favorable for this element.
The fire element brings about high energy levels, fuels passion, and fosters the expression of creativity. A great way to introduce this element to your home is with candles and fireplaces, of course! I love clustering several candles together and burning them all at once. You could also try decorating with angular shapes like triangles and stars, as these are symbolic of the fire element. As for colors, go for fiery hues like red, orange, bold yellow, purple, and pink. The bagua areas that benefit most from the fire element are the South and the Southwest.
EAST AND SOUTH EAST-  Use water or wood colors in the south east it enhances your wealth and accumulation of assets so that your net worth grows. It also ensures that you dont get poorer over the years. In the East the wood element enhances your health and longevity. This makes you full of vigor, vitality and you have a healthy body, mind and spirit.
The feng shui color of sunlight, cheerful and uplifting yellow will always brighten any home or office. Yellow color also creates cozy, welcoming feng shui energy in your kitchen, living room or children's rooms. From hot sunflower yellow to pale buttery yellow color tones―there are many options to choose from when you are planning to re-decorate your home.
Feng shui yellow is happy, nourishing, and hopeful. Depending on which direction your yellow tint or tone is headed, yellow is part of the fire or earth element in fengshui. Earth energy yellows are more than just sunshiney globs of smiles, though. Yellow provides a sweet infusion of cheer, hope, clarity, and creativity. The fengshui color aids in mental acuity while providing stability and nurturing vibes.
This is consistent with the scientific findings mentioned above, where plants are used to increase the academic performance of high schoolers. The plant suggested by feng shui is the “lucky bamboo”, where four straight bamboos are placed in the Wen Chang area. You will find more details about this in the section below: Where to Place Indoor Plants.
So, where do you start with mastering the art of feng shui decorating? You start by understanding the 5 feng shui elements on a practical level, and not just the theoretical one. Play and experiment until you are comfortable with at least several main expressions of each feng shui element. To make it easy, I have detailed infographics that show the various ways each feng shui element is expressed in modern decor with colours, shapes and more.
Candles are very popular in modern home decorating. You can find candles in all shapes and colors, as well as a variety of containers and candle holders. The recent trend toward more simplicity and a clean design in the look of candles has a practical aspect to it—many candles on the market are made with toxic materials. Choosing soy or beeswax candles for your home goes a long way in keeping the energy—and the air!—in your home happy and healthy.

Rectangular or square tables are OK in the dining room because, even though they have corners, no one will be sitting in front of a point, as they might with a coffee table. But if a circular or oval table fits perfectly, it's an excellent choice. Natural materials, like wood, feel solid and warm. The sound of glass hitting glass can cause tension. And people get overly protective with glass tables—anything too precious brings on nervous energy.
