One of the most difficult challenges in life when you need something new to happen to to get out of a rut, and that is creating transformation. You may want to create a whole new life, maybe start over after divorce, illness or job loss. Maybe you want to create a new look for yourself because you’re tired of what you see in the mirror. It could be your weight, your hair color or simply where you live that makes you unhappy.
Maybe you just feel the need for change of any kind to help you out of a rut or the awful state of feeling stuck.
Water is the element you need to help assist you with that change. Water is what we are nourished and born of as babies in our mothers’ wombs. Water has the power to conquer all and can overcome any obstacle.
In feng shui water is understood to work like a mirror of chi, only it is seen whereas chi is unseen. When what we want is change in our lives, it is water that has the power to wipe our slate clean and deliver us to a new reality.
Just look at how a drop of water or a stone has the power to cast a ripple across a wide expanse of water. Water is powerful for change.
Use the transformation tips below to understand how water can both insulate you, and help you transform a situation or your life.
Tap the 1 & 8 water stars for big change
When the 1 annual star comes to visit your bedroom or front door, you’ll often find yourself in a completely different situation in one year than you were in the next. To make this more powerful, adding a water fountain to the location of the 1 star will help usher in the change.
Adding a water fountain the southwest is especially helpful for creating wealth for women and helping women insulate themselves from the ups and downs of life. Having water here will be especially helpful for creating wealth and opportunities, particularly for women.
Watch the 1 star for your zodiac sign
The 1 star also influences your zodiac sign. When the 1 star visits your sign, such as the sheep and monkey in 2018, the rooster in 2019 and ox and tiger in 2020, changes will occur. It’s possible you will change job, relationships or move house. To make this change occur, activate with metal here to help you ensure the transformation takes place.
Use water to tap the 1 star
Water is the essential ingredient of the 1 star, and to activate it, you need real moving water. If you’d like to create a shift in your life, be sure to add water wherever the 1 star visits for the year.
In 2018, the 1 star visits the northwest sector. If this is your bedroom, bathroom or a garage, adding water here isn’t helpful. Instead, add water or water elements (tortoise, shells, pictures of water) in this corner of your living room. In 2019, it will move to the west.
Water helps improve health.
Adding water to the east corner of your home or living room (unless they’re bedrooms or bathrooms), is a terrific way to promote good health and family relationships.
When nerves are on edge, use water.
Water is a natural insulator, so drinking more water will help you weather changes and help bring down tense emotions. Having a fountain or water feature in your home or garden is a quick way to add some calm and soothing water sounds. Hearing the trickle of water is a natural relaxer. If you can get to a beach or swimming pool, spend time relaxing there.
A vacation near water is healing and also a great way to clear your mind and sort through decisions or become clear on what you need to do to move forward in your life.
Use a flower water bath ritual to cleanse and purify.
Soaking in a tub of warm water is a wonderful way to relax, but you can also use it to purify yourself and cleanse yourself of negative feelings or give your spirit a calming lift. In a warm bath, add the petals of seven types of flowers to represent the seven chakras. Include flower petals that are white, blue, pink, red, yellow, and purple. You may also want to add a few drops of lavender essential oil. The flower bath will leave you feeling refreshed and re-charged, and help with personal transformation.
