Have you ever sat out by a stream listening to the running water and just felt amazing? It seems like the sound of rushing or trickling water simply takes every care and worry away. Running water has always been known to bring therapeutic value to listeners. Even injured animals will gravitate toward streams and rivers, as the healing sounds tend to emit healing energy for all those near.
Yes, the magical properties of water are endless. This is why more and more people are opting to bring the wonderful element of water into their homes in the form of Feng Shui fountains. Since it’s not always feasible to live right next to a river or stream, the next best thing is to create one in your very own home.
What is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is simply the art of using the elements of water and wind in your environment to allow positive energy to flow throughout, bringing harmony and balance. It involves being mindful of what your home looks like in terms of décor and clutter. Feng Shui fountains are perfect for bringing in amazing positive energy in the form of water and beauty. Our bodies resonate with water, as we are made up of 70% water. Water is a healing agent that we can easily incorporate into our home décor.
Feng Shui fountains vary in size and price, so you can go with what you can afford. Even a very small fountain can allow positive energy to flow into your home and help you feel more relaxed and peaceful. Many people choose to purchase ceramic fountains, as they are handmade and aesthetically pleasing. Anything that is handmade usually has more detail and seems to be more attractive. Take a look online or at a Zen store in your community for a fountain that suits your style and budget.
Feng Shui experts state that you should face your fountain to the east for optimal health, to the southeast for abundance, and if you want to excel in your career, point it north. They advise against putting a fountain in your bedroom.
Add healing agents
Before you make your purchase, be sure that the motor of the fountain is quiet, as you don’t want a loud humming noise to drown out the sound of flowing water. Choose some crystals to put in your fountain, as crystals are known to have healing powers and help circulate positive energy. If you prefer a lovely scent, use some essential oils.
There are different types of fountains, including floor fountains, tabletop fountains, and wall art fountains. Use your creativity as you place your fountain in your home. Add some plants, a statue of Buddha, or anything else that you find positive around your statue. Place it in a spot that is free from clutter, as it will certainly get people’s attention. Friends and family will compliment you well on your fountain and perhaps purchase their own.
