A house is supposed to be a sanctuary to replenish, rejuvenate, relax, and recharge. If filled with negative energies and stressors then that house is not home. Surprisingly we think that what makes it so are the people occupying the space, however, that is not the case.
With a cluttered or simply disorganized quarter and living space, a house may invite stress, frustration, and even conflict. Even the simple arrangement, color selection, and decoration could stir up different emotions among its inhabitants.
Fortunately, Vastu Shastra, an ancient “science of architecture” helps us deal with the mind-boggling questions of how we should go about setting up our home. Using the science of direction and the five elements – air, water, earth, space, and fire – it teaches us how we can balance ourselves with the materials of our homes.
While many emphasize implementing Vastu Shastra for wealth and prosperity, it actually has more to offer than that. When thinking of applying Vastu for your home, one must take the opportunity to enhance health and positive energies.
That said, here are some of the basic principles you may want to note.
Welcoming Vastu for Home Entrance
Your home’s entrance is where it all begins. To draw good fortune to your home, it is ideal to keep let your entrance door face North or East. While you’re on that, make sure that it made out of solid wood.
The area directly in front of your entry must also be well-organized, bright, and well lit this allows the positive energy to flow freely into your home. With that hindsight, it would be best to keep shoe-racks and footwear elsewhere as it may block these energies.
If your entrance is, however, facing a wall, don’t leave it naked. A bare wall depicts loneliness. Show your fun and quirky side by decorating it. Hanging up a picture of God or even simply placing a statue will suffice.
Vastu Shastra for Bedroom
A place of solace and resting, the bedroom is where most of your thoughts hit you. Speculations, doubt, and even second-guessing could keep you up for hours or just ruin your sleep. With a Vastu Shastra aligned bedroom, you can avoid all these and get a good night’s rest.
Just like other areas of your house, it is encouraged to keep the bedroom well lit with natural lights during the day. Fresh air should also be allowed to flow through open windows for at least 20 minutes a day.
Minimum furniture will allow for better ventilation and using soothing colors can help calm your mind allowing you to rest peacefully.
Vastu Shastra Tips for Positivity
Although most of Vastu is done with the forethought of increasing positivity in the home, there are some simple acts or things that you could do to heighten its reception to the flow of good energy. Here are a few Vastu tips you can follow:
- Bring home and aquarium. Healthy, active and strong swimmers, fishes are constantly in motion. This helps attract wealth and fortune so long as you keep their water well aerated and clean.
- Balancing out the energies of nature. While some areas of Vastu are symbolic, some you have to take on face value such as the kitchen sink and stove. Both represent forces of the opposite value. That said, it is best that these do not collide. In fact, both should be as far away from each other as possible.
- Clear Glass Windows. Not only do these increase the entry of natural light but ‘sparkling clean’ glass windows and doors attract fresh and positive energies.
Now, while you can work on these Vastu tips, if you have decided to live in complete accordance with the ancient science, it would be best to work with a Vastu Expert to help you on the details of Vastu Shastra that you won’t sort out by simply going from one article to the next.
