Humans are not separate from nature but connected to earth as a part of an interconnected web of life. The element of nature act as a whole to create and maintain energy — the force of life. An energy-efficient environment attracts many benefits and more positive opportunities.
The water element is one of the strongest elements of Vastu Shastra. Water is what gives life to our planet. Without it, we would not exist. Water is the essence of life. Water has always been synonymous with authority & power.
During ancient times, water has been used as an elemental solution by the kings by placing their palaces near bodies of water. If you look at the world’s most capital cities today, they are either located near the water or have large rivers or lakes nearby. The majority of ocean-side and lake-side properties are usually more expensive.
Water near the house
Waterbody near the house or business premises is a proper placement because it keeps the energy flowing and prevents it from being “locked.” Its real essence speaks of movement and the flow of life. It invites everyone to move & bend and not to stay rigid or to struggle. Running and flowing water can encourage those who come into contact with it to accept continual change and not to struggle unnecessarily in life. Flowing water can ease tensions and allow the vibrations of the life force to enter us and nourish our aura.
Water- a source of life
If properly applied, the water element can make a world of difference. Water installed in the wrong direction might have a reverse effect on you and the inhabitants of your premises.
