Aquarium in bedroom/kitchen = Bad Feng Shui?
I am no Feng Shui expert, but I am a very superstitious person that believes in things like karma and so forth. I believe that good karma normally occurs to those who do good things and bad karma happens to those who do bad things, which is why we always hear the phrase "karma is a b..." to say the least.
I believe there's a natural balance to things, but my superstitious nature always has me thinking that sometimes good things happen by chance or luck. I started searching about how to bring better luck and prosperity and naturally attach it in my planted tank, and of course Koi, Arowana, and Feng Shui came up as the top search terms.
These fish are said to bring good prosperity based on color factors and balance. Reading into it, I found that it is considered bad luck to have an aquarium in your bedroom or your kitchen because it can literally suck the life force out of what a bedroom is normally used for (hopefully you know what I mean here)
I also learned that it is bad luck to place an aquarium in the kitchen for reasons unknown, but I was wondering if a Feng Shui expert can chime in here.
I personally have my aquarium in my room and another one in my kitchen for two reasons, these are the two places I visit inside my household the most (outside of the restroom) and having decor in these places puts me at ease more just knowing that have a piece of nature to stare at in front of me.
When I'm at work, I feel no energy at all sometimes and I feel that is somewhat to do with my office being bare and having nothing to keep my mind at ease. I can't go on the internet and search for things to put me at ease because then I would be breaking company policy, so I've thought about bringing a small aquarium into my office to keep me coming back.
An aquarium in my room has meditating effect in my opinion, for example, the sound of air bubbles or streaming water at night puts me to sleep, while the tank in the day time keeps my mind at ease, bringing good "energy" as I love to stare at the tank.
I'm sure other people do the same thing, but why does Asian culture believe this is a bad idea? Feng Shui means balance in life, and like most of us I'm sure, we're naturally trying to balance our planted aquariums. This is what aquascaping is all about.
Where do most of you keep your planted tanks in your household? In Feng Shui, I read that one must place them North-East or something to that effect.
