Feng Shui Water And The Cycle Of Life


The spiritual connection to the physical world is about harnessing 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 connective flux or the constant state of change between all five elementsfire, earth, water, wood, and metalurges us to be in balance and in harmony with nature. There is no greater pathway of least resistance to this invisible energy that is constantly circulating, or chi (pronounced chee) than through flowing water. To begin by incorporating water into your environment in a harmonious way, it can bring balance into your life.

The placement of water and other elemental materials attracts chi. While chi does tend to gather in certain places, the proper circulation of chi may become obstructed or unbalanced in the places where we live, or the areas of a home or office. Then we may experience the adverse effects in many ways. For instance, relationships with other people may be unfulfilling, health may become impaired, or our finances may suffer. There are many different ways to improve chi, and one of the best and easiest ways to introduce the principles of Feng shui into your life is with the addition of water.

Generally speaking, water features are used to stimulate or create wealth or prosperity. Beyond the financial representation itself, richness in the value of life itself is also considered prosperous. Water is represented by several elements in the home such as the colors of black (in the West, black symbolizes seriousness, formality, and wisdom; is also used to increase mental activity and communication) and dark blue (reminds us of nature and conveys a sense of serenity; symbolizes seriousness and dignity). Also representative of water are glass materials, wavy and irregular shapes (symbolizes flexibility, interaction, and adaptability), as well as some household objects: sinks, tubs, toilets, faucets, aquariums, pools, glass items, and plumbing. These colors, materials, and shapes all can be linked with one element or another. Its important to stress that one element should not dominate over the others. For example, too much fire in a room can cause tension and instability.

In order to understand how water may create prosperity, its 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 nurturing cycle where one element produces the next one. The help of this cycle is taken to enhance the positive areas of your home. For instance, fire burns and produces ash (earth) then earth produces metal in its bowels. Metal when heated flows like water and water nourishes wood then wood is the fuel for fire. In the next cycle, the controlling cycle, one element controls the next element. For instance, fire melts metal and metal (axe) cuts wood. Wood then controls earth with its roots and earth restricts the flow of water then water extinguishes fire. Finally, in the weakening cycle, it is exactly the reverse of the productive cycle. If an element produces another element, the former gets weakened in the process. For instance, fire burns wood and wood soaks up all the water. Then water takes strength from metal and metal is extracted from the earth in which earth (ash) is produced from fire.

Since water is both the literal and symbolic source of life, it improves the chi more than most other elements. Slow moving water allows chi to accumulate, or even be formed. This is where water fountains become essential to balance lifes energies. Depending on the placement of water fountains, they can enhance different aspects of your life and improve mental health.

Water fountains bring the soothing sounds of water into your life and are a good way to bring positive energy into the home. For indoors, place a wall fountain in your office or work area. The soothing effect of running water helps reduce tension, while providing symbolic nourishment to increase your income. The stones in the fountain help stabilize your finances so you dont spend more as you earn more. For outdoors, garden fountains can be used. Like wall fountains, garden fountains are available in materials that are also appropriate for Feng shui such as glass(again, symbolizes water), stone, ceramic, wood, and metal. These Feng shui material elements go hand-in-hand with the balance you wish to create in your home.

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

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

* Position a mirror to reflect a body of water. This cure is for people who live near a body of watera lake, the ocean, a river, or a stream. Water, which nourishes all life, can also symbolically nourish your finances and help increase your income. Hang a mirror so that it reflects the view of water and draws its wealth-producing energy to you.

* Install an aquarium in your living room. Aquariums grace many Chinese restaurants and are considered good luck. Because fish are living creatures, they are apt symbols of life, health, and growth, and water nourishes all living things. An aquarium also makes a colorful, calming addition to your interior environment.

* Replace a washer in a leaky kitchen faucet. A dripping faucet in the kitchen, where wealth is generated, can cause money to slowly leak away.

* Close toilet lids. Chi flows away from your home via drains, especially the toilet. Closing the toilet lid keeps money from going down the drain.

* Close the bathroom door and the shower curtain. By keeping these closed, you prevent chiand prosperityfrom slipping away down the drain.

* Hang a glass wind chime in the window of your office or work space. Glass facilitates mental activity and communication, so this is good for people who work in communication fields, computers, or sales.

Feng shui reminds us that were living with rather than against nature and 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 the understanding of lifes essential elements; we are harmonizing ourselves and balancing our lives.

    The design is nice and cute with a good choice of slate grey but the finish is lacking. The fit is poor and the wood is very low quality, very soft and light. The top back rail is made of 3 pieces and are joined together poorly with obvious unaligned seams. One of the tenons did not match its mortise, had to chisel some off to fit. Good thing it's not a real tenon joint. The little pop up table is awkward to raise but works as intended. Be careful of the company badging, it's not nailed flush and may cut your legs. I installed mine facing the rear. If this was any more expensive it would've gotten 1 star, but it's styling and affordable price keeps it at 3. Pros: stylish, good color, affordable Cons: poor fit and finish

    I love my new furniture, looks lovely on my patio and quite comfy. Like the way you can change it around. Only thing to note is it’s quite complex to build, took my hubby 3 to 4 hours and the Ottoman is not a storage box in the way I expected but can still store things underneath it.

    Unfortunately at no point was it revealed to me that the bolts were a stainless/galvanized finish where as the rest of the bench is black. Really not happy about this.

    These are very high quality, but are much, much smaller than I had anticipated from the pictures online. I love them, just wish they were a bit larger!

    This post is about packaging. The product is great. I now have enough plastic bubble wrap to almost fill the garden. Ridiculous amount of plastic. What am I supposed to do with it all? When will you switch over to shredded paper or other protective forms of packaging? I want to make another purchase but won't until you can assure me it won't be sent similarly packaged. Thank you.

    Stylish and sturdy bench. Easy to put together and with convenient spaces for shoes, boxes, boots etc. Great size for a hallway. Bench is strong as well and can easily sit two people. Very efficient and quick delivery.

    A little disappointed with this. Whilst its perfectly ok I feel that it doesn't make the "statement" that I'd expected and is a little cheap looking

    I bought 2 of the 50cmh pots, the look great, much more expensive than they cost. They have an inner liner with handles so you can lift the plant out to water etc. Delivery was really quick too.

    They’re REALLY small. But they’re nice. I got the two larger ones and I’m glad I did because these alone wouldn’t have filled up my space

    These are small, but I don’t understand the bad reviews because they’re as described. I love them, I bought some small plants from ikea and painted the frame with chalk paint so it matched my accent wall. Works perfect for me!!!
