Last week brought the Chinese New Year, beginning the Year of the Rabbit. To celebrate, why not add a touch of traditional Chinese aesthetic to your home with a feng shui fountain?
Feng shui has been around for thousands of years, and its history is far too involved to get into here (but not here). The basics, however, involve the five elements—wood, fire, earth, metal, and water (feng shui translates literally to English as “wind-water”). In feng shui, every room should have a good balance of the five elements to ensure the proper flow of energy (qi). Bringing a feng shui water fountain into a room will help align this balance if you find it to be lacking. There are plenty of different styles of feng shui fountains to choose from, so it’s not hard to find the perfect one to match your home décor.
If you’re looking to really harmonize the qi of a room, you can bring all five elements in at once with the right fountain. In this case, you’ve got bamboo (wood), a candle on top (fire), the flat stones (earth), the bowl of the fountain (metal), and, of course, the flowing water. You can balance the energy of your bedroom, office, or wherever, while bringing in the calming, soothing sounds of running water.
With a beautiful, relaxing feng shui fountain, you can celebrate the Chinese New Year every day. Xīn nián kuài lè (Happy New Year!)
