Many people, particularly Chinese, consider roads as good things in Feng Shui. Most of them think that roads could bring money, so it is good to have roads near home. Is it true? Let’s find out.
So why do modern people think that roads mean water? I guess the analogy comes from the fact that there are vehicles running on the road, just like boats moving in the water.
This is an unfortunate mistake. The power of water does not come from its ability to move objects. It’s the energy in the water that matters. Roads do not have the same energy, that’s why ancient Feng Shui masters did not regard roads the same as water.
Road Means Water?
In ancient times there was no motor vehicle. Transportation was done either by boat in the seas, rivers or canals or by vehicles drawn by horses. However, ancient Feng Shui books only mentioned the “real” water as a symbol of wealth. The Feng Shui measures implemented by the masters in the past were most related to “real” water, not vehicles or roads.
Water Means Money?
Even for water, it does not mean wealth all the time. In most occasions, water is related to money. However, Water is also a source of power, if it is used improperly, it would bring bad luck instead of fortune.
We have seen many real cases recorded in Feng Shui books written in hundreds or even thousands of years ago, in which bad happenings were brought by water found in the wrong place and in the wrong form.
I hope this article helps to explain why roads should not be considered as water in Feng Shui. In the next article, we shall discuss what roads actually mean in Feng Shui. In fact, roads could be quite bad in Feng Shui. Wonder how and why? I’ll explain in the next article!
