Color is vibration. Everything is alive and made of energy and that everything vibrates at a particular frequency. The same is true for feng shui colors — each color vibrates at its own unique frequency. Just as you and your home are connected through a multitude of overlapping energy fields, you are connected to the colors in your home in the same way.
Along with feng shui and other environmental metaphysics, color psychology is a very simple yet powerful tool for creating your own reality. Color has a remarkable impact on your psychological and physical well-being. Once you begin to understand feng shui colors, you can, in turn, use them to your advantage — both as a metaphorical and literal instigator of positive change in your life.
Follow your intuition and use your best judgment. Use colors that you love and that energize and inspire you. If you are not a fan of red, then do not use it. Use a color that represents abundance to you.

The Power of Red
Commonly, the meaning of red is associated with passion, activity, and excitement. Red is the most dominant and dynamic color. Some common properties of the color red include:
Richness / Warmth
Love / Sensuality
Another common meaning of red is its association with the fire element. Therefore, like fire, red is a symbol of power and transformation. Red is an excellent color to use in the fame and reputation area of the feng shui bagua, especially if you are trying to improve your reputation or receive more acknowledgment and recognition.
Color psychology suggests that red is activating, stimulating, passionate, exciting, powerful, and expanding.
In feng shui, red represents: the fire element (great for transformation); richness and luxury; and passion, love and romance. Therefore, red is a wonderful color to use in the abundance/prosperity, fame/reputation, and relationships/love area of the feng shui bagua.
Earthy sultry red represent love, passion, and sensuality are excellent for the bedroom. Be mindful not to have bright reds in the master bedroom or a child’s bedroom. Bright, harsh reds can aggravate, triggering unrest and anger. Use red harmoniously with good intentions to reap the most benefits.
Red can be used in the living room, kitchen and dining room. Keep in mind Red is the color of food and appetite. Use it mindfully so you aren’t endlessly eating.
Abundance and Prosperity
For the most part, effective symbols for the abundance and prosperity area of the feng shui bagua include moving objects to call in chi; water (either images of water or water features) since water is the most powerful symbol of money in feng shui; fast growing and tall vertical objects that represent growth and versatility; and anything representing luxury and prosperity like valuable objects, money, or big bunches of flowers.

Mindfulosity Delicious Life Tip:
With the use of the Feng Shui Bagua, locate the RED area of your space. Set aside a moment to honor the space. You could honor your Mulhadara Chakra, but sitting lotus style in the space, even say the 1st Chakra vibrational sound, “LAM” and meditate for a few moments. Consider this a moment to ground your personal energy with your home energy, set good intentions to see love, abundance, prosperity. Feel free to use red fabrics, pillows, candles, flowers and any other items of inspiration. If you ever sense that this area of your life is out of balance, give it a vibrational tune-up now and then.
Everything is connected and made of energy. So when you change the energy in your home, it directly affects you.
