Feng Shui – Water Fountain

In Feng Shui teachings, fountains with a pleasant and soothing sound of bubbling water are traditionally among the multifunctional means of activating favorable energy. In addition to the fact that the fountain has a good psychological effect on a person’s condition, the correct use of it in accordance with the rules of Feng Shui will help to attract good luck and positive events in life.

Element of water in Feng Shui

Water in Feng Shui is considered the primary element, the foundation, because it is from Water that all other elements originate: Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal.

All shades of blue, black color, as well as wavy and smoothly curving shapes symbolize the element of Water in space. Mirrors and mirrors, glass objects, containers filled with water and water images represent water.

We can talk a lot about the benefits of Water as an element of Feng Shui. With proper use, Water helps to restore strength, soothes and purifies the energy of the room. However, using too many items of this element can lead to apathy, self-doubt and indecision.

If you decide to use paintings or other images of water when decorating the interior, remember some of the rules of Feng Shui:

Water in the paintings should be calm, clean. It is good if the water in the picture is transparent. It is better not to have any overgrown ponds with mud and silt in the house or office.

Water should be displayed horizontally, for example, a body of water, a lake, sea or ocean, or should be directed upward. Water directed upwards symbolizes success, good luck in business and constant movement forward. Water, which is directed downward, on the contrary, represents failure and will not contribute to progress to the peaks. Therefore, do not use images of waterfalls, no matter how beautiful they may be.

Do not hang pictures of water behind your back at home at your desk, in your office or office. Water as an element of Feng Shui is not a symbol of reliability, so insecurity about one’s work or study may appear.

The most favorable areas for the use of water paintings are southeast, east and north. The most unfavorable zone from the point of view of Feng Shui is considered the southern zone, because in the south Fire predominates.

Do not use any images or pictures of water in the bedroom. This brings in infidelity.

Best Location for a fountain in Feng Shui

Water, which constantly moves in the fountain, symbolizes the continuous circulation of favorable qi energy. It is for this reason that it is advised to place the fountain in places of a house or apartment where a lot of stagnant energy is collected, si qi – bubbling water will dissipate negative energy and attract positive qi.

Feng Shui Fountain You can put a fountain at the entrance to your home or office. However, remember, the fountain should be located to the left of the front door when viewed from the room.

Given the impact of various elements on the premises, the most unfavorable sector is the south – the sector of glory. The main element of the southern sector is Fire, which is destroyed by Water, so do not contrast these two elements.

The most favorable directions for placing the fountain are the north — the career sector, the east — the family sector, and the southeast — the wealth sector. An element of the eastern and southeastern zones is the Tree, which is fed by Water; therefore, the zones of family and wealth will be symbolically “charged” with positive energy from the fountain. For the northern sector, the main element is Water, so the presence of a fountain is considered a traditional way of activating the sector.

Do not Use Fountain in bedroom and Kitchen

Do not use the fountain is in the bedroom and kitchen. The use of any water elements in the bedroom can destabilize your love and marital relationship. In the kitchen (or opposite the kitchen) it is also better not to put a fountain, because The main element of the kitchen is Fire.

Maintaining Your Feng Shui Fountain

The fountain must be turned on as often as possible so that the talisman works and the energy does not stagnate.

The water in the fountain should be clean and fresh.

The fountain can be supplemented with other talismans, for example, put a three-legged toad with a coin in the mouth at the bottom of the fountain.

For the best effect, incense can be added to the water in the fountain. For example, patchouli essential oil stimulates the nervous system and activates mental and emotional processes. Geranium oil causes a sense of vigor. And the aroma of jasmine soothes and helps with insomnia.

In Conclusion

Water as an element of Feng Shui in general and a fountain in particular, if used properly, can help achieve harmony in space and human life.
