In this article, we will be talking about Vastu Shastra & Vastu tips, a concept which a lot of people believe in and what it means from their perspective.

The ancient science, Vastu Shastra will guide you to maintain the positive energy in your home by managing all natural forces. Our world is made of Panch-tatwa. These are the five great elements, namely fire, earth, water, air, and space. The Panch-tatwa influence literally every living and non-living thing on the planet. When the Panch-tatwa is balanced, they bring harmony in your life. Vastu Shastra is an ancient science that describes how to maintain this balance of Panch-tatwa in your house.

Vastu Shastra is built by considering the effects of cosmological entities like the sun’s path, magnetic field, rotation of the earth, etc. on a house and people living inside it. These cosmological forces influence different energy fields within your home and thus, affect you and all other members. The houses that are built according to the principles of Vastu Shastra are filled with positive energy, which works favourably for the dwellers living inside them.

Vastu Shastra contains a knowledge of home designing that leads to wealth and health in them. If you are planning to design your new house, here are Vastu tips to bring prosperity and wealth to your house,

The Main Entrance

The main entrance filters different types of energy from entering your house. According to Vastu Shastra, the entrance doorway should be facing either north or north-east direction. Such houses open the door for positivity in your home. The north-facing doorways are prosperous for your house as they enhance growth and well-being of the dwellers. .

The east and west are also considered right directions for main entrances, as the east entrances bring peace, whereas west entrance brings prosperity and wealth. The financial harmony is essential after purchasing a new house, especially when you have taken a home loan. The same balance enables you to manage EMIs without unwanted stress.
On the other hand, the direction south is not considered suitable to be the main entrance, as it is believed to bring many financial problems and disharmony.

The Living Room

The living room is the place for all the important events. Call it an intimate family gathering or formal party with colleagues, everyone feels positive and energized when your living room is filled with positivity. The ideal directions for the living room are north, north-east, or east, however, north-west facing living rooms are also favourable.
The heavy furniture should be placed in the west or south-west direction, whereas the south-east is the direction for electronics and appliances. Avoid displaying any form of art that depicts pain or sorrow in the living room. Also, avoid keeping any broken frames or mirror in your living room as such things create a negative aura around them.      
The Kitchen
The south-east direction is called as ‘Agneya’ in Sanskrit, which means fire. The south-east corner is considered as the fire centre of your house, which has a major influence on the health of your family. The kitchen is generally built in the south-east corner of the house. All the cooking appliances like gas stoves, microwaves and cylinders should be at the south-east corner of the kitchen.  Fire and water are opposite forces, therefore, Vastu recommends not placing a basin adjacent to the gas stove. According to Vastu Shastra, such houses may lead to financial loss or negatively affect the health of you and your family members.

The Bedroom

The sleeping position influences the overall energy level in the body, and therefore, bedroom has given an important place in Vastu. While sleeping, your head should point in the south direction, which can be achieved by placing the bed in the south-west corner of the house.  Sleeping while pointing head towards the south not only attracts wealth and prosperity but also energizes the body by providing sound sleep.
On the other hand, pointing head in the north brings you under the negative field of the earth, which leads to nightmares and sleep deprivation. Therefore, sleeping with your head point at north is not recommended in the Vastu Shastra.

The Bathroom

According to Vastu Shastra, toilets or bathrooms should be located in the west or north-west direction of the house to maintain the balance of energy in the house. The bathrooms located in the south, south-east, or south-west direction may lead to health and financial problems.

Importance of Colour Combinations in your house

Along with the directions, colours are also given a significant place in the Vastu Shastra. Let’s understand how you can use colour combinations to balance the energies in your house. Some colours like bright orange or chrome yellow can absorb negative vibrations. So, these colours help you to reduce the negativity in the rooms that are always cluttered or experience leakage. Also, using light colours to paint the walls in the bedroom creates a calm and soothing environment.

Lastly, Vastu Shastra is all about creating a positive environment in your house by balancing the natural forces. Thus, it also suggests you to ‘go green’ while decorating your house. For example, the main entrance made of wood attracts positive vibes and looks appealing than the doors made of artificial material. The home décor items made of natural substances like wood or stones attract positive vibes and thus, bring prosperity and wealth.
