  1. Determine your kua color – your kua color is a major aspect of feng shui. You determine it by taking the last 2 digits of your birth year and adding or subtracting from it depending upon whether you’re male or female. Men subtract 10 from the digits in their birth year and women add 5 in order to find their kua color.  Kua colors are linked to natural elements. Use this guide on Feng Shui Crazy to determine your color so you can incorporate it into your car. You can accent the interior by adding an air freshener in your kua color, for example.
  2. Keep your car clean – a cluttered car can lead to a cluttered mind. Make sure you car is clean internally and externally to reduce stress and mental distraction.
  3. Bring earth and balance into your car – a blue ribbon represents water while earth tones represent, well , the earth.  You can tie a ribbon to your rear view mirror to remind you to stay balanced.
