The ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui aims to create harmony in a space by balancing the five elements of earth, metal, fire, wood, and water. A well-chosen Feng Shui fountain can be instrumental in achieving this harmonious positive energy, called Qi, by addressing the water element in your space. "Feng" means wind and "Shui" means water in Chinese. Feng Shui is the study, understanding and dealing with wind and water. Water is the most potent Feng Shui enhancer or remedy for good luck if place on the right location (Wealth Spot) and at the right time with the correct flow and body of water. The water flow has to be oriented to flow towards a door or a window if placed outside the house. If placed inside the house the water must never be placed to flow out towards a door or window.
