Release and Rejuvenation – Flowing water is Yang aligned.
As you might expect bringing the water element into your home creates a downward flow of energy. Water’s innate ability to pool around any and every object brings stability and equalization to surrounding energies. Water energies help us let go of things that are no longer in our best interests.
It is still water (Yin) that is responsible for calming the surrounding energies. A still pool brings a sense of a fresh start, a new beginning, and the renewal of strength.
Water is one of the most important elements in Feng Shui.
Water is considered to be the initial element; that makes it the birth to all the other elements and symbolizes wealth.
Water has the clear and fresh effects. The water balance causes inspiration, wisdom and good judgment.
Water symbolizes the winter season, just as summer is symbolized by the element of fire. In Feng Shui, we balance and reinforce the energy of an environment by bringing shapes, (square, triangle, circle, rectangular, waves), elements (wood, fire, earth, metal and water), and colors associated with the area of a home or building.
To enhance the energy of water, use the colors black and deep blue along with glass and mirrors.
Water is nurturing. Everyone should have a water feature in their home and or garden, not just for the Feng Shui aspect of it, but for nature as well.
Having more than one water feature in our home, I have noticed that during our cold winter, the air does not feel as dry and the temperature feels a lot more stable, there is hardly any static in the air.
The excess of water leads to flabbiness and despondency. Too many water makes the feeling of unbalance, the feeling you are sinking, alarm. The lack of water leads to the feeling of loneliness, stress, and insignificance.
