Living in a positivity-induced home can make a huge difference to your personal levels of happiness and serenity.

It is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature: air, water, earth, space and fire, and balances them with the man and materials of the house.

Staying positive and meditating is one thing, but have you ever thought what else can be done to achieve all your lifegoals and attract peace, positivity? Vaastu is the answer. This ancient word basically translates into ‘science of architecture’, represents a conduit between man and nature, and provides laws on the construction of homes along with appropriate guidelines for a healthy, wealthy, and peaceful abode.

It is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature: air, water, earth, space and fire, and balances them with the man and materials of the house. Imagine a beautiful home but one where people keep on quarrelling with each other, where there is unrest and a lack of prosperity, where people remain unhappy and dissatisfied. Nobody wants to live in such a home filled with troubles and neither will you. According to Vaastu, every house has its own energy and when we start residing in a space we automatically come under the purview of that energy. Thus, living in a positivity-induced home can make a huge difference to your personal levels of happiness and serenity. 

So, here are some tips from Vastu Shastra that has remedies for correcting energies which in turn will filled your home with peaceful atmosphere. 

Doorway to Prosperity  

A beautiful entrance attracts wealth and prosperity. Almost all the energy that enters your house comes in through the entrance or the main door. Hence, what better way to invite positivity into your home than by getting the Vaastu for your home entrance right. According to the Vaastu, North or East direction is ideal for the entrance door. The entrance of your home should be brightly lit, preferably with warm lights, to exude warmth and happiness. 

Living Room Dictates your Destiny

The north-west quadrant, belonging to the element of air, is an ideal location for the living room which makes it a storehouse of positive energy and bestows the users with serenity and mental peace. However, when it comes to wall hangings and paintings, the northeast wall is the best place for it. You should choose beautiful images and avoid pictures that show hunger, pain, anger or any other negative image.

Bedroom full of Happiness and Harmony 

When it comes to the bedroom, we all picture a place dedicated to peace and relaxation. Peaceful and nurturing sleep is not only vital for our physical well-being but also indispensable for the contentment of our mind and soul. Ideally, the bedroom located in the south-west brings good health and prosperity for the homeowner and enhances longevity. Avoid a bedroom in the north-east or south-east zone of the house. In the south-east, it may result in quarrels among the couple. The bedroom in the north-east may cause a health issue. Also, it is best if your bed is made of wood. Metal can create negative vibrations. Remove all clutter from under the bed, as this ensures forward progress in your lives.

Recipe for Good health  

To ensure your kitchen is enveloped in positive vibes, the elements of earth, sky, air, fire, and water need to be in balance. According to Vaastu Shastra, the Lord of Fire—Agni—prevails in the southeast direction of the home, which means that this is the ideal placement of the kitchen in your home. If for any reason, you are unable to do so, the north-west direction will work. It is also important to place the sink and stove in such a way that they don’t collide with each other.

The epicentre of all the energies- Pooja Room 

A Pooja/ prayer room is one of the most important and auspicious places in any house. More or less, a Pooja room serves like an engine that drives and circles various energies throughout the house. It is, therefore, imperative that special care is taken while designing and placing the Pooja room. As per Vaastu, the best direction and place for the Pooja room is the north-east corner of your house. If north-east placement is not feasible, it can be set up in the east or the west side of the house. Once set up as per Vaastu, the Pooja room keeps driving harmonious vibes throughout the house which in turn heightens the positive energy. One can find all these Vastu oriented structures in Amangani homes which is an exemplary example of Vastu compliance in a modern home.

Vaastu Shastra is an amazing blend of science, art, astronomy, and astrology. The fundamentals of Vaastu-science circle around the various sources of energies, solar and celestial included. Balancing these energies is the key to bring in success and happiness to you and your loved ones, thus turning your house into a peaceful home.
