Feng Shui water and the cycle of life

The spiritual connection to the physical world is to harness the positive energy that surrounds us through the ancient Chinese art of placement, arrangement and connectivity known as Feng Shui (pronounced "fung schwee"). Feng shui literally means "wind and water" in Chinese. The flow of connectivity or the state of constant change between the five elements - fire, earth, water, wood and metal - pushes us to be in balance and in harmony with nature. There is no greater path of least resistance to this invisible energy that circulates constantly, or ch'i (pronounced chee), only through the flow of water. For starters, by harmoniously integrating water into your environment, it can bring balance to your life.

The placement of water and other elementary materials attracts ch'i. Although ch'i tends to congregate in certain places, its circulation can be obstructed or unbalanced in the places where we live, or in the areas of the house or office. Then we can experience the adverse effects in many ways. For example, relationships with others may be unsatisfactory, health may be impaired, or our finances may suffer. There are many different ways to improve ch'i, and one of the easiest and easiest ways to introduce the principles of Feng Shui into your life is to add water.

In general, the characteristics of water are used to stimulate or create wealth or prosperity. Beyond financial representation itself, the wealth of the value of life is also considered prosperous. Water is represented by several elements in the house, such as the colors of black (in the West, black symbolizes seriousness, formality and wisdom, it is also used to increase mental activity and communication) and the dark blue (reminds us of nature and sense of serenity, symbolizes seriousness and dignity).

Glass materials, wavy and irregular shapes (symbolizing flexibility, interaction and adaptability), as well as some sinks, basins, bathtubs, toilets, faucets, aquariums, swimming pools, glassware and plumbing are also representative of the water. These colors, materials and shapes can all be related to one element or another. It is important to emphasize that one element must not dominate the others. For example, too much fire in a room can cause tension and instability.

To understand how water can create prosperity, it is important to understand the cycles of how the five elements interact to bring balance and harmony. The first cycle is the productive cycle, which is the nourishing cycle in which one element produces the next. The help of this cycle is taken to improve the positive areas of your home. For example, fire burns and produces ash (earth), then the earth produces metal in its bowels. Metal, when heated, flows like water, and water feeds wood, which is the fuel of fire. In the next cycle, the control cycle, one element controls the next element.

For example, fire melts metal and metal (ax) cuts wood. The wood then controls the earth with its roots and the land limits the flow of water, then the water extinguishes the fire. Finally, in the weakening cycle, it is exactly the opposite of the productive cycle. If an element produces another element, it weakens in the process. For example, fire burns wood and wood absorbs all water. Then the water draws its strength from the metal and the metal is extracted from the earth in which the earth (ash) is produced from the fire.

Since water is both the literal and symbolic source of life, it improves the ch'i more than most other elements. The slowness of the water allows the ch'i to accumulate or even to form. This is where fountains become indispensable for balancing the energies of life. Depending on the location of the fountains, they can improve different aspects of your life and improve your mental health.

Water fountains introduce the soothing sounds of water into your life and are a good way to bring positive energy to your home. For indoor use, place a wall fountain in your office or workspace. The soothing effect of running water helps reduce tension, while providing symbolic food to increase your income. The fountain stones help stabilize your finances so that you do not spend more, you earn more. For outdoor use, garden fountains can be used. Like wall fountains, garden fountains are available in materials that are also suitable for Feng shui, such as glass (symbolizes water again), stone, ceramics, wood and metal. These material elements of Feng Shui go hand in hand with the balance you want to create at home.

Bird baths are also a great addition to your front or back yard. Feng Shui connects water, which feeds all life, with money. Birds are also considered lucky, so this cure combines both symbols to increase prosperity.

Here are some additional tips on Feng Shui to include more water and the cycle of life in your home or office:

  • Place a mirror to reflect a body of water. This treatment is for people who live near a body of water, a lake, the ocean, a river or a stream. Water, which feeds all life, can also symbolically feed your finances and help you increase your income. Hang a mirror to reflect the view of the water and "tap" its energy generating wealth.

  • Install an aquarium in your living room. Aquariums adorn many Chinese restaurants and are considered a chance. Because fish are living creatures, they symbolize life, health, and growth, and water nourishes all living things. An aquarium also brings a colorful and soothing touch to your indoor environment.

  • Replace a washer in a leaking kitchen faucet. A drip faucet in the kitchen, where wealth is generated, can result in a slow leak of money.

  • Close the toilet lids. The ch'i flows away from your house through the sewers, especially the toilets. Closing the toilet lid prevents money from "drip".

  • Close the bathroom door and the shower curtain. By keeping them closed, you prevent ch'i - and prosperity - from slipping into the sewers.

  • Hang a glass chime on the window of your office or workspace. Glass facilitates mental activity and communication, which is therefore useful for people working in the fields of communication, computer science or sales.

Feng Shui reminds us that we live with rather than against nature and that it benefits both human beings and our environment. Our lives are affected by our physical and emotional environments. Instead of surrounding ourselves with destruction and obstruction, we surround ourselves with openness, cleanliness and understanding of the essential elements of life; we harmonize and balance our lives.
