When placed in a window, crystals will encourage positive Chi as they fill your home with rainbows. They also bring balance to the dominating fire element – the sun.

TIP: Use crystals all around the house to deflect negative energies.

2. Flowing free forms, wavy, or asymmetrical shapes

In Feng Shui, soft and wavy lines of water elements bring “Yin” energy. They help to balance the straight architectural lines and the many other “Yang” shapes and energies of our modern life.

Other water symbols can be: a water picture, or any art representing water. For instance a beautiful lake, sea waves, a waterfall will energize an area with good energies.

3. Feng Shui Water Related Chinese Figurines

Even if they are just figurines, Feng Shui fish, frogs, turtles, or water dragons have their own symbolism believed to bring good energies to your place.

Chinese believe that the Dragon headed Turtle will bring longevity into your place, especially to the head of the house.

* TIP: Never place Feng Shui water elements pointing out of your home
