Easy feng shui decorating with water element: bring flow, function and freedom into your home

The water feng shui element, in all its gentleness and grace, is a very powerful element; in fact, water is one of the most powerful forces of nature.

It is a different kind of power, the one that often takes you by surprise and encompasses all extremes – it can be a very powerful healer, as well as the ultimate destroyer.

Water is the only element out of the 5 feng shui elements that can exist in several different states – from liquid (water) to gaseous (vapours) to solid (ice). This metamorphosis emphasizes the potent and often untapped mystery of the water element energy.

The water feng shui element is also about the only element that is very free in its presence and expression – it can fall from the skies (rain), it can joyfully run, rest or play on the surface of the earth (rivers, lakes, oceans) as well as penetrate the deepest chambers of the inner earth (underground water).

No wonder “feng shui” means “wind and water”!

Wind being the expression of air (which we obviously cannot live without) and water being the ultimate queen of all elements and the darling of them all :) – from plants to animals to humans.

WHEN To Decorate with the Water Feng Shui Element:

Just as water is essential for life on earth, so is this element essential in your home or office decorating. The first way the water energy expresses itself is in flowing, meandering pathways – which are modelled after water flow and are always good feng shui!

Color-wise, you might want to bring more of the water element with its endless variety of blue to calm, cool and refresh your space, as well as promote a deeper sense of connection to life mysteries.

WHERE To Focus on the Water Element Decor:

The Water feng shui element is needed in the North, East and Southeast bagua areas of your home or office (if you are working with the Classical feng shui bagua).

HOW To Decorate with the Water Feng Shui Element:

The healing, life giving and mysterious energy of the Water element can be expressed in colors blue and black, in a variety of water features, in flowing shapes, images of water, mirrors, as well as numerous decor items in blue and black colors.
