One of the most effective and popular Feng Shui cures, water fountains bring good luck, prosperity and abundance to the home. The front of the house is always an excellent choice for the location of an outside water fountain as it activates and retains positive chi, allowing it to freely enter into the home.
The flowing water of the fountain helps to reactivate stagnant chi, restores balance to the area and produces beneficial yang energy. If the water in the fountain does not flow equally on all sides, for example a water fountain with a cascading waterfall flowing down into one area, make sure the water flows toward the house and not away from it. Water flowing toward the front door of the house symbolizes wealth and prosperity. Water flowing away from the house may result in a loss of wealth or an increase in financial problems.
In Feng Shui design the water fountain is often placed near the main entrance. This placement corresponds to the bagua map area of career and life path, known as kan gua whose element is water.
Consider the constructive and destructive cycles of the elements when choosing a water fountain and make any needed changes to ensure the continued flow of positive chi. For example, in the constructive cycle metal holds and supports water. Choosing a copper fountain is a good fountain choice. If you choose a stone or cement water fountain, those materials block water in the destructive cycle, the choice is still good but changes are needed. Remedy the problem by placing a few coins into the water fountain.
The following are the key elements of the creative cycle as it pertains to water:
• Metal holds water
• Water nourishes wood
• Earth stops or dams water
• Water puts out fire
Common materials of Feng Shui water fountains include:
• Rock and stone
Although there are many styles and sizes of water fountains available, there is not one style or size that is correct for Feng Shui. The water fountain you choose is a personal choice and needs to be one you enjoy and want as part of your outdoor living environment.
Many practitioners of Feng Shui choose a water fountain for their front yard that matches the style of their home. For example, someone with a home that has a tropical style may choose a water fountain with a dolphin statue while someone with a contemporary style home is more apt to choose a fountain that is modern in design. Generally, a round tiered water fountain looks great with any style home.
A Feng Shui water fountain in front of a house attracts auspicious chi, prosperity and good fortune while providing a tranquil and relaxing landscape feature.
