These days, it is very common to observe huge aquariums with different species of tropical fish. Probably, it is a family show in your workplace, your mother-in-law’s house, in your favorite shopping center or even in traditional stores. In your interest to place an aquarium, have you ever wondered what your real goal is? Why is it used in classical Feng Shui?
No doubt the aquariums are beautiful and even, there are those who are fascinated by carefully watching a golden fish, but is an aquarium something more than part of the decoration of your home?
In the study of Feng Shui, “water” represents an important element in its concepts and applications. Likewise, we know that Qi or energy has a relevant role. Adding two plus two, we can deduce that water in general plays a role in influencing the Qi
Well the old saying goes … “The Qi is dispersed by the wind and collected on the water’s edge”
This is where your aquarium for Feng Shui, provides the perfect means to collect beneficial Qi. To effectively retain the Qi, we opted for the living, the water moving to regulate the Qi and keep it moving. An aquarium and its beautiful fish, is all you need to achieve what seems, be a difficult task
Some of you may wonder why an aquarium? Why not a glass of water or a waterfall? For a better understanding, we need to understand that in feng shui, proportion is everything. A glass of water is simply not substantial enough to exert any effect on the Qi. Unless the glass is 10 feet tall, we should look for something more. We also know that waterfalls, because of their strong sound, can generate Sha Qi and that, not to mention their exorbitant maintenance cost
Taking advantage of the Qi
An aquarium, with the correct size and practicality, is the perfect tool to retain the Qi in your home. The aquariums are aesthetically pleasing, easy to maintain and correctly comply with all the “requirements” of Feng Shui for an indoor water device
An aquarium is also accessible to people of all professions and the best part is that it can be perfectly combined with the interior of your home, improving your personality
Whether or not you are a fan of Feng Shui, you do not want your guests to enter and be greeted by a gigantic water device, supplemented by a huge and bright money toad; so for practicality, let’s now stay with an aquarium
Let’s be realistic to understand that the type of fish has absolutely no effect on the Feng Shui of your home. The fish are only for swimming, look adorable and keep the water active or moving
Since we are disrupting myths related to the aquarium, it is the perfect time to dispel one; which indicates that placing water on the right side of the main door can affect relationships and cause infidelity
Provided the location is adequate, the aquarium can be placed anywhere, relative to the front door
Consequently, it is important to keep in mind that the placement of the aquarium, only needs to be correct
As we explained earlier, the purpose of an aquarium is to regulate and retain the Qi in your home; so where to place it?
Think of your aquarium as you think of your money. Normally, you would place it in the bank that gives you the highest interest rate. Also, you must place your tank where the Qi is the most prosperous so that you can hold it
Water may seem like an easy element to “manage”, but it really is not; on the contrary, it is extremely difficult to work with water since there are many rules and exceptions associated with this element.
