Wellness and Water Transformation: A Feng Shui Master’s Perspective
In Cantonese Feng Shui literally means “wind and water.” These are the forces that shape our environment. Water is a visible energy that acts as a "holding bin" for Chi, known as life-force. Wind is an invisible energy, which circulates fresh Chi. It is good luck to bring fresh Chi into a built environment (wind energy) and important to be able to catch that Chi and hold on to it (water energy). Feng Shui principles are based on the idea that our surroundings have an impact on our health, success, and happiness. Winter is the season of Water. It is wavy, deep moving energy. Water portrays a depth of emotion and introspection. It suggests the inner self, the beginning of a more relaxed, more flexible stage. The shape of Water, In Feng Shui, is uneven and irregular. The colors associated with the Water element are black and dark blue. These elements can be used in your environment to enhance the water energy bringing stillness, introspection, well-being and relaxation.
Water is an essential part of our lives, and it can also be a powerful tool for transformation. If you’re looking to make a change in your life, start with water. Spend time near a large body of water for healing and relaxation. Stay hydrated to improve your skin health, your mental health, and cognitive function. Try some water therapies offered at spas or just take a swim. At home, place a water feature in your home to bring health and abundance into your life. The sound of moving water is certain to soothe your heart and soul.
