Feng Shui looks at the blance of elements in your life, work space and home. Through the harmonous arrangement of items, furnture and possessions within the home one can hope to use feng shui’s wisdom to bring harmony to life.
Feng Shui students will use tools like a bagua map to identify which areas of a home corrospond to areas of the inhabitants’ lives.
Indoor water fountains are used by feng shui students to bring the water element to the correct area of the house. The bagua map is then used to identify the area of the house the fountain should go.
Harmonise prosperity: place the water fountain in the south-east
Harmonise relationships and love: place the water fountain in the south-west
Harmonise careeer: place the water fountain in the north
Incourage helpful friends and travel: place the water fountain in the west
Incourage health and family: place the water fountain in the east
Incourage skills and knowledge: place the water fountain in the north-east
Water fountains are sometimes used in favour of still water as flowing water increases the positive chi (qi) in the room. There are also the direct benefits of helping to increase the humidity levels of homes with central heating and reducing dust.
