Chromotherapy is only part of the Yin and Yang Theory, one of the oldest philosophical theories, applied in this classical chinese garden.

Colors have meanings in this philosophy and make you feel a certain way and thus help to find you balance. Yin and yang the teaching of opposites of the Feng Shui world. If matter is Yin, energy is Yang. Similarly if earth is Yin, sky is Yang. When talking in terms of energy and matter energy can’t exist without matter, and matter can’t exist unless it has energy to keep its structure.

Yin colors according to Feng Shui are the colors that bring about healing and relaxation. The relation between colors and Feng Shui can be better understood by taking the example of some colors as given below:

Blue: Blue color according to Feng Shui has yin energy. It is calm and soothing. This color has great significance in Feng Shui as it reflects love as it heals and relaxes. Blue creates a feeling of peace and trust. Since it is the color of the sea and sky, Feng Shui associates it with adventure and exploration. Navy blue is the color of intellect and wisdom.

Black: Black color in Feng Shui symbolizes money and income, black is great for careers, especially when combined with metal. It is the Feng Shui color of emotional protection and power.

Purple: Purple, the color that lies at the end of the spectrum, has a great significance in Feng Shui. The color is excellent for physical and mental healing and Feng Shui associates it with spiritual awareness.

White: In Feng Shui the white color represents poise, confidence and purity. Because of its yin energy, Feng Shui uses this color mostly in combination with gold or silver to generate an calm atmosphere.

Yang colors according to Feng Shui tend to be fire and wood elements. Feng Shui believes that these are the colors that provide you the enthusiasm or the positive energy required to do something or be motivated. The description that Feng Shui provides for each color is given below to help you in using them for your advantage:

Yellow: Yellow color in Feng Shui is considered to be as auspicious as red. Yellow represents sunbeams, warmth, motion, cheerfulness and friendliness. However, according to some 'Color Feng Shui' consultants, prolonged exposure to large amounts of intense yellow can cause anxiety.

Orange: With a lot of yang energy the orange color has great significance for Feng Shui practice as it strengthens your concentration. You might use this color when your creative well runs dry. Orange color in Feng Shui is used to give you a sense of purpose. Orange is the color of organization.

The color of this panorama was greatly helped by LAB color mode enhancement to heighten your senses. Fall would bring them out, but at time of the shooting mother nature was not quite ready yet. Who says its not Yin and Yang? I used computer code which is ultimately 1 and 0......it should be a balanced tool, not? Ok, ok, maybe too much but some I need Chromotherapy so bad that a slight temporary overdose will not hurt.
