Outdoor Fountains for Harmony and Balance in the Garden

Outdoor Fountains

While we have mainly looked at how to use feng shui inside the home, it’s important to note that the outdoors environment is just as important in terms of chi energy and flow.

It can also be blocked and stagnant or free and active and even if we don’t spend that much time out there, your garden can have just as much of a part to play in our lives as the flow of energy inside of our house.

As with the indoors, it is important that the chi energy be able to flow freely through your garden.

Any blockages need to be removed to allow this flow, however if the chi flows too fast, this can cause turbulence or a volatile environment.

The element of water is associated with the accumulation of chi energy and beneficial for wealth and prosperity.

The Chinese have long since know and taken advantage of the benefits of garden ponds or outdoor water fountains.

Not only is it a very relaxing and peaceful source of enjoyment but it can also bring increased prosperity luck to those living in the house.

Water can be used to speed up chi flow and to slow it down where needed. In the garden the water element can be in the form of outdoor fountains, ponds or even an artificial waterfall.

Whichever form you use, it’s important that you place it in the right area to get the perfect balance of energies.

Outdoor water fountains are the easiest to install and maintain so we’ll focus on these. When choosing an outdoor fountain see if you can get one that is not only aesthetically pleasing to you and your garden, but also one which is in proportion to your house.

Outdoor fountains that are too small are too gentle in affect and will give us the feeling of being constantly exhausted.

Whereas outdoor water fountains that are too large can be too powerful with the water expanse you’ll feel like you’re drowning symbolically speaking. This can also be detrimental to your career prospects. Make sure you’ve got a good proportionate fountain for good balance.
