Ever heard of chi? Chi is your energy field which emanates from you and projects to your surroundings. Your chi greatly affects your thoughts and feelings. It also guides your interaction with other people. It is believed that your chi is partly determined by the clothes that you wear, particularly the material, color and pattern. What is believed to be good clothing material consists of cotton, silk, linen, wool and leather. It is important that wool and leather should not be tight and touch the skin.
Bad clothing material consists of synthetic fabric. Clothing made of synthetic fabric is believed to prevent the natural flow of energy to and from your energy field. It is also believed to have a bad effect on your interaction with other people. Synthetic clothing material is said to cause physical and emotional risks.
Yin and Yang. Yang refers to the positive aspect of things. Since leather, wool and silk all come from animals, they all have yang characteristics which translates to action, organization and dynamism. Would you rather get yin energy instead? This energy would come from cotton and linen which are derived from plants. These materials bring forth communication, creativity, and sensitivity.
