Water Fountains

In feng shui terms, moving water brings prosperity and good luck to the home. The sound and motion of gurgling water activates chi and adds humidity to a dry room, helping to balance chi. Moving water gets things going when the chi has been stagnant for a while. Use moving water cures anywhere you want to enhance water or wood energy. Water fountains come in many shapes and sizes; pick one that:

• Suits the style of your décor

• Is an appropriate size for the place you intend to use it

• Incorporates the materials, shapes, and/or colors of the element energies

you want to add to that space you can usually adjust the sound of a water fountain by changing the water level. Some fountains also come with an adjustable pump, so you can vary the speed with which the water flows. Experiment until you find a tone and volume that sounds right.

Be sure to add more water to your fountain as it evaporates, to avoid possible damage to the pump if the water level gets too low. Depending

on your climate and the size of the fountain, this could be once a week or every day. If you will be away from home for several days, unplug the

fountain while you are gone.If you place an outdoor fountain by your front door to activate kan gua (career), make sure the water flows toward your door, not away from it.You want all that good chi to come into your life, not flow out of it! Indoors, place the fountain so the water flow is directed toward the interior of the home, rather than toward the front door. Some people find the sound of a water fountain distracting, and a fountain is generally not recommended for the bedroom, unless you turn it off while you are sleeping. Be guided by your personal response, and choose another cure if a fountain isn’t right for you.

Good luck,
