Home with a Good Vaastu.

This science is complete in itself.
Happiness to the whole world it can bring
All the four benefits it bestows on you
Rightful living, money, fulfilment of desires and bliss
Are all available in this world itself
~ Viswakarma 

Vaastu Shastra is an ancient Indian science of architecture governing the design of man-made structures. With a history spanning 6000 years, the fundamental premise of Vaastu rests on the fact that the earth is a living organism.

This science indicates that everything on earth is influenced by planets, and the five elements ~ Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Space. These forces combine and act to create harmony or disharmony.

Conforming to Vaastu tends to foster the presence of a positive energy field throughout the home impacting health, wealth and happiness of those who live within.

Keep the central space in a home clean

  • Keep this area clutter-free
  • The middle part of the house must not be depressed viz. its floor level must not be lower than the rest.
  • Avoid keeping heavy items in the middle part of the house as well as that of each room.
  • Never build a staircase or a lift or a toilet in this middle part.
  • Hang a chandelier with crystals and five lamps in this area for energising the house with healthy cosmic energy and ‘chi’ energy.

Balance the Fire Element

In order to ensure good health through Vaastu principles, the Fire element must not be imbalanced. To ensure the balance of fire element observes the following tips:

  • Avoid keeping any electrical equipment in the northeast.
  • Avoid locating an overhead water tank in the south-east.
  • Light a lamp at dusk in the south-east area.

Other Tips to Keep In Mind

According to a Hindu belief do not place the statue or picture of goddess Lakshmi outside the home because this indicates outflow of wealth from the house.

  • Make sure there is no clutter or litter because that will lead to obstruction of flow of positive energy.
  • Do not keep statues or images of Nataraja, sinking boat or pictures or scenes depicting Mahabharata.
  • Do not place water fountain inside the house as it symbolizes flow of wealth.
  • The bed should never be placed in front of the mirror.
  • The door of the attached bathroom should always be kept shut.
  • Place fresh flowers instead of dead dried /artificial flowers.

Sleeping with your head in the right direction is vital

It may be wrong to suggest for everyone to sleep with their heads in one particular direction. Each individual has a unique configuration viz. his or her basic vibration, so one has to discover the right direction by themselves.

Sleep with your head in one direction say north, for a week and observe how you feel. Then for the next week keep your head in the east and so on.

The direction which makes you feel fresher and better in the morning is the ideal direction for you.

Stick to that direction.

Follow these simple Vaastu measures to keep your home radiant and your mind fresh and happy.
