Winter and the Water Element

Utilizing Water in Feng Shui
“Water is the driving force of all nature.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

Water is the most abundant element on earth and, whether it’s falling down from the sky as rain, flowing in a beautiful river, rising with the tide in the ocean or simply in a glass that we’re drinking for refreshment, we interact with water every day of our lives.

Water is very closely intertwined with Feng Shui and, as you probably already know, the actual literal translation for Feng Shui is “wind over water”, which tells you just how connected the two are. Water is also incredibly important for the human body, as we are made up of more water than anything else.

When you drink the water, remember the spring ~ Chinese Proverb

One of the main reasons to use water as a Feng Shui element in your home is that it brings prosperity and wealth, as well as building strong relationships. It actually correlates quite nicely if you think about it, because as water flows in your home, wealth and happiness flow as well.

In order to work best, water needs to be flowing or in motion, somehow. If you’ve ever heard the term “stagnant” you might be surprised to know that it originated as a word for a body of water that was standing still, and has come to signify someone or something that is listless or apathetic.

“Youngsters of the age of two and three are endowed with extraordinary strength. They can lift a dog twice their own weight and dump him into the bathtub.” – Erma Bombeck

What that means is that, to utilize water as a Feng Shui element in your home, you can create something dynamic whether it’s a fountain, a waterfall or even an aquarium. What’s even more interesting to note about water is the affinity that humans have always had for it. If you think about it, nearly all of the major civilizations on earth were created near either a large river or an ocean. That’s not a coincidence, nor is our love of water sports.

The term “located near the water” is used in the real estate industry to let people know that a home they are looking to purchase will have extra value. It’s probably also the reason that you never see “located very far away from the water” in a real estate listing.

“Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains…” Diane Ackerman

Flowing water, when used correctly as a Feng Shui element in your home, is something that can build relationships, bring wealth and prosperity, and help families to bond and be happy.

So if you’re using water for Feng Shui, and you should, let it flow.

Wishing you good Feng Shui and a HaPPy HoliDaY!!! !
