Wind & Water

11 January 2012 door Miranda van Gaalen

When the wind is spreading energy around, water is the place where it accumulates. Together these forces are known as Feng Shui. Knowing where to look for good energy and using it, is an art that improves life.

Every object in the environment, be it a tree, sculpture or building, influences the direction of the wind. Wind meeting such an obstruction has no choice but to change direction, causing it to speed up, slow right down or meander around. High-rise buildings conjure strong wind, as do small and narrow alleys whereas open areas like playgrounds, parks and paddocks caress the wind. To guide the direction of the wind is to be able to use its strength.

The landscape provides a lot of information on the flow of the wind when prevailing wind directions are considered. Buildings that are protected from strong wind are preferable. This not only relates to a sense of security for the occupants but also to more economical aspects as reduced power bills due to less exposure. Not having neighbours on one side can be nice but the cold pouring through the wall can be awkward.

Water collects energy and that’s why water is so attractive. People enjoy the vicinity of water whether it’s the view of tranquillity, the joy of immersing in it or the meandering thoughts just listening to it. Many cities have been established near water and many enjoy the prosperities that water can bring. Interesting research would be to find out how cities near water compare to cities without waterways.

Not only can water be so different in form as there’re oceans, rivers, lakes, canals and fishing ponds, but the current also plays a role in the ultimate effect of water upon humans living nearby. Fast flowing, lingering, slow or stagnant, these are all characteristics that provide information on the health and prosperity opportunities. The beauty needs to be considered as well because dirty, stagnant water dissolves any positive effects and only creates disease.
