Calming Effect of Water

Whenever I feel tired, restless and low in energy, I will do a couple of things to boost up my life. First of all, I will make sure that I get enough sleep and rest. I will also take more nutritious food and drink like ginseng, Chinese herbal soup and energy drink like Pocari. Daily exercise also help in getting my body back in fitness. Sometimes, despite all these things being done, I still have the feeling of low energy and stress. That is when I head down to the nearest place where there is plenty of water. It could be the sea, a waterfall, a reservoir/lake or even a simple beautiful man made pond. I will simply seat there for at least an hour and let the water elements work on my body.

Water has a calming and positive effect on my body. The Chinese firmly believes in the importance of water as part of the landscape to enhance health and wealth. That is why in Asia, you can see so many beautiful buildings with water elements such as fountains and ponds incorporated in their landscape. The sound of water derived from a fountain can be a calming effect on our mind’ and it also transfer positive energy into our body. I have the habit of sitting next to a fountain or a beautiful pond with fishes whenever I am free. For best effect, I try to do this alone and not bringing friends and families with screaming kids running around. I mean how can a person focus on the sound of water and the beauty of nature ( fishes) when you have kids screaming and your friends chatting non stop? You should treat it as an important therapeutic session that you must do alone in order to gain the maximum benefits from water elements.

According to Chinese Feng Shui, water is the most important symbol of money.  This is because there is a positive chi energy generated from moving water that give us wealth and health. So if you intend to built a fountain or a pond in your home, make sure that the water is continuously moving and not stagnant. So make water therapy a part of your life and I am sure you will see the positive benefits it brings to your life.
