Need Some Fire? The Power of Red, Fire and Feng Shui

Michiganders around will all relate to this post!  The sky is gray, the trees bare, the grass a muted shade of brownish green.  Did you get a visual here?  Today, I am feeling the heavy energy of the changing Season, the early Spring blah. 

How can we improve our environment, add sparks of energy and uplift our mood?  The fire element and color red or red-tones in Feng Shui can do just that. 

 
While it may not be practical for most of us to go out and purchase a red chair, this modern design and cozy, red, velvet fabric would certainly enliven even the drabbest of spaces.

A fire, light a fire if you have a fireplace to get an instant energy shift.  Candles also will suffice and how fun would it be to create an arrangement using candles in red colors and tones to add the extra fire element.

Adding a beautiful red geranium or any type of red flower to a table setting is a practical and quick addition of the fire element.  Silk or dried flowers can be used by why not use real?  The smell, and sensory experience is so much greater.  Hope to have added some inspiration, fire and spark to your day!  Love and happy ch'i, Dana
