What Is Feng Shui?
This art and science of balancing and harmonising within the home, garden or office was developed in China more than 3000 years ago. The concept behind Feng Shui is to balance people with their surrounding environment. The idea is to ensure health and good fortune, as well as a sense of general well being for the people inhabiting a certain space.
There is a lot to the Feng Shui art and there can be so much to learn about it, but that’s a very basic explanation of what Feng Shui is all about. There are many applications of Feng Shui and a great variety of styles.
How Does Feng Shui Relate To Modern Water Features?
Water is essential to life. Without it nothing survives. But apart from needing water to drink or for things to grow, water also has other therapeutic properties.
Just about all of us feel a sense of tranquillity when we are near water. It could be the beach, a mountain stream, a waterfall, or even the backyard swimming pool. Moving water produces negative ions, which helps to boost the immune system. Splashing, aerated water imparts more vitality to the environment.
The science of Feng Shui recommends setting up a water feature where the water flows towards the home or office rather than away from it. The reason: Flowing water represents wealth. If it flows toward you, wealth will flow towards you also. It the water flows away from you, then so will the money and good fortune.
The entrance to a building is a key area when it comes to adopting positive Feng Shui designs, and water features near an entrance are a good thing. Even apart from the Feng Shui benefits, seeing a stunning modern water feature at the entrance is really inspiring.
For all of us, the presence of water puts us in a calm and positive frame of mind. It doesn’t matter whether it’s within the home or the workplace, positivity is always a good thing, and that’s where a water feature really is a bonus; both for aesthetics, as well as physical well being and mental health.
