The art and science of creating prosperity and harmony, known as Feng Shui from the ancient oriental civilisation and its equivalent from Indian civilisation known as Vastu, is not just a process of decoration but a tool to create an environment that has the best energy to support the specific activity, or activities intended for that space.

From the ancient times, Traditional Feng Shui masters have decoded the universal energies and evolved many simple yet powerful methods to harness the nature’s energies to support the human aspirations. Each of the occupants, place and thing is alive and connected together with the universal energy called ‘Chi.’ Everything is connected by this vital energy which is always changing.

When we integrate the Vastu and Feng Shui principles into our lives, we see and interact with the world in a new powerful way. In both Vastu and  Feng Shui, each area and corner of the house relates to some aspect and aspirations of you and your life. Any missing corner, cluttered area or dark area has an influence on the occupant’s life with regard to the specific corner.

Creating a home harmonious to exude positivity and activate good relationship is something which these ancient sciences facilitate when implemented properly.

The sector which represents growth, relationship, family support is the East as per Feng Shui compass direction analysis. For example, if the living room needs the best balance of calm and active energy, a small water fountain surrounded by an arrangement of feathery and broad-leaved plants will create balanced energy or Chi. Hence, the approach of adding or taking off a element in a space can create the right balance and one can achieve this through different approaches.

Water has a powerful effect on career growth in Feng Shui. Its dual energy and serenity mirrors the very qualities necessary for a successful professional path. Vastu and Feng Shui emphasise on the benefits of moving water to activate good luck. Water features like aquariums and fountains can activate positive Chi and usher in prosperity if placed in the living rooms and foyer east and north sectors.

In Feng Shui, North is a water sector, and metal produces water thereby strengthening the energy of the sector. Activating a water fountain in the lawns of the house or inside the living room would be an excellent energiser to strengthen career luck.

In the East, which governs the health sector, the health  luck of the occupants of                 the home can be strengthened. You could place a water feature in the living room to strengthen the wood energy as East signifies wood element.

• Benefits of moving water to activate good luck are quite potent when they are positioned correctly and kept clean. Water features like aquariums and fountains can activate positive Chi and usher in prosperity if placed in the living rooms and foyer east and north sectors.

• Place small table fountain or an elegant piece of artwork depicting water in your home office or North sector of your home, but not  in the bedroom.
