There is nothing more relaxing than the sound of gentle trickling water in a quality water feature. Whilst audio pleasures are just one benefit, a good feng shui water feature can have aesthetically pleasing aspects as well. Before we get into this too much I will mention one important point, your water feature does not need to have an oriental look in order to possess Feng Shui benefits. Many people shy away from a water feature for Feng Shui benefits as they feel they need to have a traditional oriental look, this is incorrect, go forth and choose a water feature design that you like!
Smooth running water symbolises wealth and income
The most important aspect with a feng shui water feature flow is that the water is steadily flowing. This symbolises good income in the form a regular payment or income.
If the water accumulates, this symbolises wealth and the accumulation of assets. Assets could be something like a house, a business, property and/or company.
If you want to go one step further and build great wealth you need to accumulate deep water, like a pond or pool, at least 18 inches deep.
Feng Shui Water Feature Location
If wealth is important to you, you need to ensure your water feature is placed in the Feng Shui Wealth Corners of your home. These are the south east, south west and north corners. If these corners fall in your kitchen, bathroom or bedroom then place the water feature in the wealth corner of your lounge room.
Please don’t have the water feature under a stairway, this is believed to cause sickness or other misfortune for young children.
Your home front door is a good location for your water feature.
Having your water feature on the right hand side of your main door (if you look from the inside out) is believed to make your husband unfaithful.
One of the main points to remember is to ensure the water flows into your home, not out of your home.

The best feng shui bagua areas for your water feature are:
East – For Family and Health
North – For your Career and Life Path
South-East – For Money and Wealth
Install a dragon near the water fountain
The thirsty dragon drinking the water is known to be a very power symbol in Feng Shui culture. Did you know that if you don’t have a dragon in your water feature, it is only operating at approx. 20% of its capacity. Add a thirsty dragon and you have an instant symbol of good wealth and luck. If the water feature is inside your home, then the wealth is inside your home.
Add some fish to signify abundance
Adding a number of fish to your water feature can signify great wealth. It doesn’t really matter what variety of fish you choose. A lot of people pick gold fish but the choice is yours.
Add some crystals
Head to your local shop and purchase some decorative stone or even feng shui crystals and place them in your fountain. These are known to heighten the level of Sheng Chi (basically, beneficial energy). Alternatively, you may prefer to buy a water feature that allows you to diffuse essentials oils. If you want to doubt the energy benefits of your feng shui water feature, stones and crystals are the way to go.
