Water Feature - Art of Placement

The use of water feature has been widely applied in Feng Shui practice. It is believed to be able to create wealth and good fortune by many. But this is however not true. Water does not in anyway represent wealth, abundance and prosperity. By the law of nature, "Qi" is carried and dispersed by the wind and preserve in the water.

In fact, having the wrong application and placement of water feature in your home may actually just bring you and your family more harm and misfortune instead, probably also resulting in a financial loss.

In this ancient chinese knowledge, the use of water is there to only help harness the "Qi" of our surrounding environment to better enhance your life achievement.

In Xuan Kong Feng Shui, water is used to gather the good "Qi" to bring about beneficial changes in your life. The placement of water in your house is arranged accordingly to the different period and individual house's directional position to help achieve that.

Perhaps there are just some water features lying in your home right now at this very moment? Then you should better be beware of the possible danger you might be actually facing if the positioning of them are wrong.

Below are some common general Feng Shui guides that you might have come across.

Location to Be Placing Water Feature:

  • North Sector: Career or Business Success; Increase of Income
  • Southeast Sector: Overall Wealth, Prosperity and Abundance
  • East Sector: Family Harmony and Health
  • Personal Sheng Qi Sector: Water produce Wood
  • Main Entrance: Ming Tang

These locations may not exactly always be correct for water placement. Many just follow blindly without even knowing that they might had install a water feature at the very wrong location in their house, which may actually bring about more harm and misfortune than to benefits for them.

Location to Avoid Placing Water Feature:

  • Bedroom: It will cause financial loss and weakening of love relationship
    Kitchen: Water put off Fire.

This again is not true. It may actually be allowed if the formation of your house permits and in fact for some cases, placing of water feature in the sector can be exceptionally beneficial.

In order to get the correct spot for the placement of water feature and its flow direction, it must be based on individual house analysis chart.

Perhaps to just share with you a good example: A friend of mine was advised by a Feng Shui practitioner to have water feature installed in the Direct Spirit (aka Zhen Shen) sector in his living room to activate a good facing star. It was true that in general, facing star number 8 is certainly a good star to be activating for period 8. But little was he aware that by doing so, he has actually violated the direct Spirit rule.

No water feature should ever be placed in the Direct Spirit sector. And indeed after placing the water feature there, he encountered more difficulties in his life rather than getting the benefits that he was looking forward to.

All Special Water Formation have their basis but then again, certain vital rules are never to be overlooked.

  • You are never to violate both the Direct and Indirect Spirit rules (aka Mountain & Water Palace) by placing any water feature there no matter how good a spot or position it may be.

  • You must correctly locate the qi of the house in order to accurately identify the dragon spot for placing your water feature.

  • You have to carefully examine the external factors coming from any existing real landform that may be outside the house to correctly bring in the good "Qi".

The art of Water placement in Feng Shui can certainly be complicated. Studying of it may seem easy but the actual application may not just be that easy.

It certainly requires a true understanding and strong foundation of this ancient chinese fundamental to be able to get things correct, to be better bringing about beneficial changes to your life. Wrong placement of water feature in the house may result in undesired harm and misfortune like divorce, financial loss or poor health depending on the chart analysis. Once youˇ¦d understand the theory behind, there shouldnˇ¦t be any more confusion. Youˇ¦ll start to see a very clear picture.

You can't afford to go wrong. Unless you are absolutely sure.
