Feng Shui literally means wind and water. Chi – or energy – floats on the wind (feng) and comes to rest where there is water (shui). Water stands for wisdom, communication, intelligence, money and sex. The colors blue and black are associated with the waterelement. The use of real water at home brings flow and change about in your life. On which level? That depends on where you place it. Would you like to have more flow in your life?


Would you like to place a fishtank or an interior fountain in your house? Or do you have already an waterelement? Then read the following tips.


What is a waterelement?

An interior waterelement can be: a fishtank or an interior fountain. Moving water, not still. A vase with flowers is hence not a waterelement.


How many fish should you keep in the tank?

There is a rule that says that you best keep two goldfish and one black fish in your tank. In bigger tanks seven goldfish and two black ones. But the truth to be said, the number doesn’t matter. The thing is that that water should be in movement. Swimming fish produce this effect. In my tank there have been two of them swimming for a year now and it does work.


What kind of fish?

Neither the species nor the color matters, as long as they can swim :-).


Which shape is the best?

The shape doesn’t matter either: round, squared, whatever,… What matters is that the upper side should be kept open. So do not cover it just in case the cat… because it wouldn’t work! Clear water is important. So change it regularly.


Where should the waterelement be placed?

It can be placed in several locations depending on your goals. More help or the right people that can help you further, such as the right doctor, clients, new employees, a webmaster, can be achieved by placing it in the East in 2015. Water in this sector in 2015 strengthens your network and contacts, your career and brings more flow financial-wise.


What if the east is represented by your dormitory, kitchen, garage, dressing room or bathroom, or it falls outside your house?

Then do not place a waterelement.


For how long should you leave the waterelement in the East?

Throughout 2015.

Are you using an interior fountain? Then let the water flow day and night throughout the year so as to provide a continuous flow.

Do you have a fishtank? Then let the fish swim day and night throughout the year :-).


WARNING: without a prior and professional Feng Shui analysis, this can have co-lateral effects:

Do not place any water if you feel emotionally wrong or depressed!

Take the water away if you notice that your health has worsened or that arguments pop up more often after having placed it!


Would you like to receive more tips on where to place the waterelement and how to achieve your goals in 2015?

Then suscribe to the online workshop ‘What brings 2015 for you’ or order the E-book for 2015.

(The E-book is good for the do-it-yourselver who has already experience regarding the yearly Feng Shui update. Thus if you have already attended this workshop).


Would you like to install a swimmingpool or a pond?

The right location of an exterior waterelement is crucial. Once installed, it can not be easily moved. So get your personal Feng Shui advice first.



And… do feed your fish regulary :-).
