Colours and thought processes

You could look at Feng Shui, the Chinese art of space alignment as a combination of lifestyle, placement of rooms, furniture, décor, logic and a tool to synchronise living spaces and occupants.

Our immediate environment and décor colours all have a strong impact on our mind and in turn on our thoughts. Colours we see through our eyes create an impact and activate our thought process. Therefore, the choice of right colours and a sense of balance are essential when we paint walls or add furnishings in our homes or offices.

Colours are said to have a stronger impact on the minds of people, especially on patients in hospitals and could even aid in relaxing and de-stressing people in a healthcare set up.

Using Feng Shui colours is a sure way of leaving an effective and long lasting impact on the minds of people.

They create the mood and establish a serene atmosphere when you first walk into a room. The right colour scheme can either lift or dampen spirits or have a calming and revitalising effect.

Colour therapy has been used since the beginning of time, firstly by ancient Egyptians and then by Greeks who assigned specific colours to specific illnesses.

Even today, you’ll find pink rooms in the cells of some prisons in the US to sedate violent prisoners.  Similarly, the healing qualities of green have been used in UK hospitals to foster a sense of nurturing.

In Feng Shui, colours are very important and determine the ambience of your home influencing energy patterns which in turn, affect your own energy and experience of what a home means to you.

If you are suffering from insomnia, Feng Shui could help you indirectly if you could change the ambience of your home and especially bedroom in order to relax your mind through the power of sight.

Feng Shui studies show that by changing the wall colours or your bedroom to pastel, soothing types, using comfortable bed sheets, pillows and mattresses as well as ensuring that you don’t have any other disturbances in the bedroom like television could transform the energy of the space.

Adequate lighting

You could also provide adequate lighting in the bedroom and play soothing sounds that will help induce sleep.

These simple Feng Shui  remedies work towards relaxing your mind and body to relieve stress and regain your sleep rhythms, but these are only additional aids in overcoming mood swings and sleeplessness and are not replacements for any medical prescription or advice provided by your doctor.
