From light yellow to dark earth brown, the variety of shades the color brown can form is incredibly amazing and never fails to remind us of the earth. It also indicates the positive connections it shares with our planet Earth and represents the season of fall and emotions of sorrow.

Blue, being one of the most intense and the least sensual colors, is the medium of veracity, the color of clear, condensed dry air, the color of crystals and diamonds. It is also the color of the sky. Blue illustrates immateriality, social agreement, companionship, concern, hope, optimism, caution and empathy.

Blue is the color that is most lacking in warmth and emotion. It is manifested in the dusk of light. Vincent van Gogh colored trees blue when they appeared in the shadows. Blue gleam is evident in ice and snow in the presence of sunlight, and skin apparently becomes blue when exposed to coldness. Blue is not comforting, soft and warmth.

In the fight between heaven and earth, blue and white contended with red and green, which is depicted in the drawing in which St. George is combating with the dragon. In addition, Mother Mary was clothed in a blue colored coat.

Symbolizing the capability of the mind and spiritual awareness, blue signifies the favorable aspect of creativity and idealistic thoughts.

Historically, indigo blue was the primary color of clothing for the common people in the East.

Light blue tones are the most viable choice for coating walls, because they connote a feeling of being spacious and airy. Dark blue repulses the residents of the house and make them too disconnected.

On the whole, black is the color that stands for the end of life, destruction, darkness, the after hours and great respect. As opposed to the anguish of white associated with grief, black symbolizes anguish with despair. Black alludes to slipping into emptiness irreversibly. In addition, black is deemed as giving up being egotistical, self-complacent and materialistic, and staying modest. The view that black brings us face to face with our own character is held by some people.

The first emperor of China overthrew the red Chou Dynasty. Thereafter, he settled upon black as the color for his dynasty. As stated by the control cycle of the five feng shui elements, the color black (Water) puts out the color red (Fire). It was not, until a hundred years later, that the color epitomizing a dynasty was reverted to red.

In feng shui, black is designated north, towards the feng shui element Water, and represents the cold season of the year, the after dark, affluence and prosperity.

China Metal Coins

Read to me :

Utilization of metal coins in China has been around since the 7th century BC. In China , coins are believed to deliver good luck, and this is similar to the ideas in several other cultures as well. Ancient coins that originated in China had a squared opening at the central portion. This allowed the energy of the earth (yin) to flow through. As for the energy of the heavens (yang), it is associated with the circular form of the coins.
 
Various symbols and marks are evident on the exterior of unique lucky coins. Nine coins strung on a string symbolize continuous good luck, while a bat signifies "Good luck is directly before your eyes." Good luck coins were usually carried to bring about safety or good luck. In addition, during marital rites, the bride and groom were showered with these coins and the bride had to receive them with her skirt. Messages such as LONGEVITY, PROSPERITY, GREAT RESPECT or MAY YOU AGE IN HARMONY were engraved on these nuptial coins.
 
Coins are good-luck pieces or safety amulets in feng shui too. Many coins, in quantities of three, five or nine, are thread on two red silk ribbons, in which the red color symbolizes happiness. The squared openings at the central portion of the coins allow the ribbons to be made to go through, which are then connected together to create a good luck ribbon. This good luck ribbon is suspended near the doorway to draw good luck and safeguard against danger and disaster.
