- Destructive element is earth (earth dams water)
- Reducing element is wood (woods absorbs water)
Water is an element that feeds and helps to create wood. You can use water elements to deter stagnation, loneliness, and feelings of insecurity. It can help with communication and create determination to finish a task. Too much water in an environment can make some feel overwhelmed and overly emotional so balancing the elements properly is important in any space. If too much emotion is becoming a problem with you or your family members at home you may wish to add more earth elements as this can hold back water’s affects; such as a dam holds back water.
