Feng Shui Jewelry and Bling

I love to accessorize. Whether adding a decorative pillow to my living room sofa or a pendant to a necklace, accessories are what complete the “look” for me. Luckily, my fondness for accessories and Feng Shui go hand-in-hand. Here is what I mean. Normally, Feng Shui principles are applied to your home, garden, office, and even your car. But not much is said about how these principles — one of seeking good Chi, attracting a mate, getting a promotion at work, and so on — can be carried around with you. That’s too bad because Feng Shui can be made portable. The best way to attract the good Chi as you go about town is to sport Feng Shui jewelry and bling.

The kinds of jewelry, bling, or accessories that I am referring to include necklaces, earrings, bracelets, watches, key-chains, and even cell phone dangles. So what types of pieces should you choose to promote good Chi? A good way to choose the right piece Feng Shui jewelry would be to consider the color.

Colors in Feng Shui correspond to the elements earth, fire, metal, water, and wood. In terms of jewelry and bling, wearing yellow encourages steady relationships because yellow is associated with the earth element. If you want greater recognition and career growth, choose the colors red or purple. These two colors are associated with the high energy fire element.

For those of you who are interested in keeping mentally sharp and seeking clarity of thought, try wearing white jewelry. You could also accessorize with gray colored bling. These are the colors of the metal element.

If you want calm, wear blue or black jewelry. Blue and black are associated with the water element. Finally, those wanting good health should wear brown or green jewelry and/or bling. These two colors are tied with the wood element.

Here is some bonus advice on how to prime your jewelry before you wear them. Take special note, especially if you are going to accessorize with crystals — either as bling or Feng Shui jewelry. The first thing you need to do when you first acquire the crystal jewelry is to wash it. Yes, you need to wash it. This is because crystals hold residual energies from the previous holder. You want to discharge that energy before you use the jewelry. You never know what type of energy was left over from the previous owner.
