Feng Shui Water: 7 Ways to Attract Good Energies

Feng Shui Water Element

Pay attention to the Feng Shui Water element if you want to attract good energy into your environment.

In this Chinese philosophy, the term stands for Water and Wind. When activated by the wind, water in motion generates the flow of wellbeing through your life.

How to use the Feng Shui Water Elements to your advantage

In Feng Shui ALL water features are believed to stimulate the flux of life, giving energy and bringing wellbeing to your home and life.

Feng Shui Water Features – Why are they great for your home and garden

1. Bird baths and water gardens

When filled with clean water, bird baths improve Chi.
They symbolize good fortune and happiness

Still water generally is not a good Feng Shui option. However, bird baths and water gardens will attract wildlife, awakening and enlivening the good energy. – Birds need to drink water too.

 2. Water Fountains

Placed in the knowledge area, a waterfall can enhance learning.

Water fountains and waterfalls circulate and refresh the Chi while they offer a pleasing place to rest the eye and the ear.

Water fountains provide more health benefits by releasing negative ions, thereby purifying your environment. Fountains also increase humidity levels and decrease the level of dust, pollutants and static electricity.

3. Fish tanks or aquariums

In Feng Shui, aquariums bring wealth and prosperity. If the fish are real, they will share their quiet, positive energy.

Fish have been proven to help reducing stress and keeping old people alive and healthy.
* I read that in Hong Kong almost every apartment has an aquarium.

TIP: Do not keep fish in the bedroom, the bathroom or the kitchen where they will create material loss!

Feng Shui Water Symbols – Why should you use them

1. Reflective surfaces, such as a cut crystal, glass or mirrors are considered water symbols

Feng Shui crystals add light and color to any room in your home. They fill a home with positive Chi energy.

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 Feng Shui art representing water.

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

Where to place the Feng Shui water elements

Correcting the unbalance in your environment

The water element is a great solution for correcting an unbalance floor plan of your home.

According to Feng Shui, the best shape for a house, apartment or room is the square. But don’t lose hope if your home or workplace has an architectural imbalance.

Water features symbolically complete the structure. Place them to “fill in” where the corner of the building would be. At the same time, the water feature keeps lively Chi circulating.

Feng Shui Water elements are ideal for activating the good energy of your prosperity area.

In Feng Shui, water is directly associated with the flow of money and prosperity. Therefore, water features are especially powerful in the “wealth” and “career” areas.


In Feng Shui the water element is generally a good enhancer for the NORTH areas of your place. However, by using the  BAGUA map will give you more ideas. By applying it to your home or office floor plan,  you will notice nine distinctive zones and each is related to a specific color.


The colors: blue, dark blue, black or water tones. Place the water elements in the prosperity, health, creative, knowledge, career or helpful people areas to activate them.

* TIP: It is very important to know that the Prosperity corner is the farthest left corner of your house (room, office) from the entrance door. –
In this zone you should place a water feature or symbol to activate the good energies.
