Feng Shui And Water - A Tabletop Fountain Will Bring Peace into Your Home


by Leslie Gabriel August 15, 2014 1 Comment

The ancient Chinese decorating art of feng shui is actually part decoration and part spirituality. Followers believe that how your home is arranged and what you put in it will affect every aspect of the lives of the people living there. Water is a very important element in feng shui and can be used in the home in a number of ways to produce different effects. However, the one thing that can bring the most overall benefit to a home and its residents is a tabletop fountain.

A tabletop fountain can bring peace, good health, and prosperity to a home, depending on where it is placed. That is one thing about feng shui that you have to be very careful with....placement. If something is placed in the wrong location of the house, it can bring bad results with it, or not do anything at all. You don't want all of your money to get flushed down the toilet, right? Well, that's one thing feng shui says can happen if you leave your toilet seats up (another good reason to place them in the down position!).

So how, exactly, does the art of feng shui say a tabletop fountain will help your home, and where do you place it?

  • The element of water is associated with wealth and prosperity in feng shui.
  • Any nature element that is brought into the home instills a feeling of peace and tranquility if it is placed correctly, according to feng shui.

You've probably experienced a feeling of peace before when listening to water running over stones in nature. You may even be familiar with the soothing sounds of tabletop fountains in massage rooms at spas, or in an acupuncturist's office. You know the sound of the water on the stones in the fountain brings peace and tranquility. Heck, you can buy CD's of nothing but the sound of running water. People use them to relax and to fall asleep (or make guests feel like they have to pee).

You can't place the fountain just anywhere, though. That would be disastrous! Feng shui prescribes three locations for a tabletop fountain in your home, each with a different purpose for the fountain.

  • East--Good things for your health and family (this includes peace and tranquility)
  • Southeast--Prosperity and wealth
  • North--Career and general path in life (improving both)

You must also remember to avoid placing a tabletop fountain in the southern portion of your home. This area is associated with the fire element, and putting water there (which douses fire) can cause conflicting energy. It can also disrupt your fame and/or reputation, which the south normally boosts. Everyone warns you when you're growing up to protect your reputation. Keeping a tabletop fountain out of the southern portion of your home is one way you can do it, and keep your parents happy!

Finally, don't put a tabletop fountain in a bedroom, no matter what direction of the house it is in. This will draw worry into the bedroom, and you don't want that in a place that is meant for relaxation. Any other room of the house is fine for a tabletop fountain as long as it's in one of the proper directions. Try using a tabletop fountain in your home according to the art of feng shui, and enjoy the many benefits it will bring.

I didn’t know that tabletop fountains provide extra benefits other than just looking good. I really thought it was interesting how the article talked about how important it is to place it just right. Now that I think about it, whenever I walk into a mall or a business building with a tabletop fountain I instantly feel at peace! It’s so weird because I never realized it before I read this article
