Water Elemental Energy Explained
In Feng Shui, water is one of the five elements of all energy. The others are Fire, Wood, Earth, and Metal. As explained in the Feng Shui part of the Crystal Vaults, each of these elements are critical to keep in balance in our lives and in our homes.
Water energy is the energy of stillness, quiet strength, and purification. It embodies potentialities unrealized. It is yielding, formless, yet powerful. The water element brings the power of regeneration and rebirth. It is the energy of the circle of life.
Water energy is symbolized by blue and black. Use these colors of crystals to enhance any space that you use for repose, calm reflection, or prayer. Use blue or black crystals to bring the flowing energy of the water element to areas of your home and life that are focused on realizing your potential.
Water energy is traditionally associated with the North area of a home or room. It is associated with the Career and Life Path area. Its flowing energy will assure a balance of energy as your life unfolds and flows. To keep your life moving forward towards your goals use the water elements energy.
In the Black Hat approach to Feng Shui, the water element is associated with the entrance or the area near it if the entry door is not centered. This area should have water energy. If a fish tank is impractical, an arrangement of blue or black crystals can serve well.
You can support the water energy in a location by not only adding some blue or black crystals to bring the energy into the space, but also by adding some metal energy to that space to support the water element. Silver colored crystals near the blue or black ones are perfect.
If there is is too much earth energy in a space that needs water energy, for example a lot of beige furnishing in the entry or north area, it should be reduced to keep it from harming the water energy. Traditionally green or dark brown crystals representing the wood element are used. A small peridot or tourmaline cluster would be excellent.
Water energy diminishes fire energy, and enhances wood energy. Blue and black crystals can be used in areas where there is too much of the fire element or in an area with too little of the wood element. The water element like the others, is life giving and nourishing. Use it in your home or office for your health and well being.
