Vastu in the home suggests the right colors, shapes, and directions to ensure positivity and happiness in each corner of the house. It influences the energy of the home. Just as we need good energy flow in our bodies the same applies to our home.
With holidays upon us, you may be hosting friends or family members and want your home to look and feel its best.
Here are some suggestions of room placements according to Vastu, an integral part of Ayurveda:
1. Where should I place my bed?
The correct bed direction per Vastu should be east, northeast, and southeast so that the legs are in the north or west direction while you are asleep. This enhances more sound sleep and containment of your energy flow.
2. The guest bedroom should be in the northwest.
As for bed placement, the south or west part of the room is preferred. The fire, agni, or kitchen placement should be in the southeast direction of the home.
3. According to Vastu, the main entrance to the home is vital to energy flow. It promotes health, wealth, and harmony.
Many of us use mirrors to face the front door. This should be removed as it actually bounces energy backward.
The ideal and most auspicious direction is the northeast. It adds vitality and energy to those who live in the house. North can bring wealth and fortune.
Things to avoid at the front entrance:
Mirror, wall opposite the main door, shoe racks, old furniture, broken chairs or stools, red lighting.
Things to include:
A glass pot filled with water and flower petals.
Auspicious plants such as Tulsi or money plant.
Tiny bells or beads.
Bringing good energy flow to your home helps establish a connection between the physical environment and quality of life.
