Collection: Water Features

Water fountains are used in feng shui adjustments because they bring in the water element. 

First, a fountain can help to create a peaceful and harmonious environment. The sound of trickling water is very soothing and can help you relax any tension or stress you may be holding onto. 

Fountains also invite the water element into your space, which can help activate water element qualities in your life. Water can be deep and still, like a lake, or flowing and changeable, like a river. The deep aspects of water are connected to wisdom, insight and intuition, while the more flowing side of water represents our social connections and how we interact with the world around us. Because of this, you may want to add more water to your space if you’d like to invite wisdom and depth, or if you’d like to expand your social network. 

Water, especially flowing water, is also related to wealth, abundance, and cash flow. You may already be familiar with fountains being used for this purpose, and it can be quite effective. If you are using a fountain to invite wealth and prosperity, there are a few areas of your home where it might be most effective — we’ll come back to this in a moment. 

The constant movement of water in a fountain can also be helpful to stir up the qi in your home. One of the main goals of feng shui is to adjust the flow of qi in a space, which includes making sure that it can move freely. Qi that is not flowing becomes stale or stagnant, and when this happens, we can become stuck in areas of our lives as well.
