How To Tell If A Fountain Is Right For Your Feng Shui

June 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 206

A common misconception about Feng Shui is that the furniture and decorations must be oriental in order to achieve the desired feng shui energy. The surrounding energy can be manipulated using the furniture you already own no matter where it was manufactured, including a water fountain.

Fountains aren't necessary when using this system, and some claim that fountains impede positive energy by introducing negative energy. However, it has been proven that the gentle sound many fountains produce can help you relax which will in turn produce a more positive energy in the living area.

Fountains and Feng Shui

Water fountains are often used to create a relaxing sound in a quiet environment, and many feng shui enthusiasts state that the sounds water produce can alleviate energy blockages. Also, the white noise created by the fountains can also be used to cover up other less desirable noises. This effect can also create a Catch-22 loop. Louder noises need louder fountains to cover them up, which can then create a negative energy due simply to the amount of sound being produced at all times. In these situations, a fountain may not be the best cure.

Most people think of natural-looking fountains when considering introducing water into an area designed through feng shui. While this is not necessary, fountains that incorporate nature can add to the overall appeal of the fountain. Adding stones, bamboo plants or bonsai trees can bring nature indoors without taking up a lot of room.

Where to Place Your Fountain

Placement of everything is key. It is the belief that by arranging materials, furniture and possessions, one can introduce a balance and positive energy into an environment. By following the bagua, a type of map, users of feng shui can decide where to place objects to receive a desired energy outcome in specific properties of life, such as wealth, health, career, love, etc. The feng shui areas are north, northeast, east, southeast, south, southwest, west, and northwest. Each location has colors and properties associated with it.

To find the ideal placement of your water fountain, it is suggested to map your area with the bagua. This can be done inside or outside, depending on where you would like to place the fountain. Even gardens can be designed with feng shui in mind to keep the balance throughout your entire home. Tabletop and wall fountains are the most popular types of fountains used to create positive energy for a few reasons. Wall fountains are unobtrusive and can be viewed as a piece of art on the wall. They are out of the way while providing the relaxing sound you desire. In clean, uncluttered areas, tabletop fountains can be the perfect centerpiece as they draw in attention while providing the perfect feng shui atmosphere.
