Vaastu Shastra For A Positive Home!

Every Indian homeowner has heard of the ancient science of Vaastu Shastra. However, very little is truly known about its benefits and why a home should be Vaastu friendly. The central idea behind Vaastu Shastra is to design your home in a way as to derive the maximum from the natural environment and to circulate positive energy in your home. When a home is in perfect harmony with the environment it trickles into the personal and professional lives of the people inhabiting the space. 
Vaastu is based on logic and not hokum! Make your visitors feel naturally welcomed and feel the positive energy pulsating through every nook and cranny of your home by following these simple tips. 
Realign Your Bedroom

Use your bedroom to relax and de-stress? For your master bedroom, make sure it is in the south or south-west direction, as per Vaastu Shastra. Similarly, the kid’s bedroom should be in East or west and the guest bedroom to be in North West direction. It is recommended to avoid putting a TV in your bedroom. Use colors like violet or purple to paint the walls as they add positive energy to the room.

Sleep With Your Head To The South

If you want to sleep like a child after a tiring day then place your head to the South. Vaastu Shastra recommends avoiding other directions for the sake of a peaceful rest.

Wind From South To West

When the wind blows from south to the west, it fills the room with positive energy. Place your windows to allow for this flow of wind through your home. With the help of Vaastu, you can create a positive environment to dispel negative energy that filters in from your surroundings.

Vaastu Compatible Kitchen

The south-east direction is the ideal location for your kitchen. However, you can also shift it to the north-west corner if the south-east is not available. Never place brooms, mops or mirrors in your kitchen. Southwest is the ideal location because this direction is governed by the fire element of nature.

In Your Living Room

Only place the TV in your living room and that too in the south-east direction. Air conditioners should be affixed on western or northern walls. Let your family know how important and joyful it is for them to bond by putting up a family picture of a happy moment. Place furniture preferably in the south or west part of the living room. 

You may not have the luxury to reconstruct your home based on principles of Vaastu, but you can always make small changes that can prove to be equally beneficial. It is always the small things that make the biggest difference!
