Some of the best ways to improve and strengthen our homes, using ancient techniques like Vastu Shastra:
Here are some tricks to make your home Vastu compliant without tearing off walls or constructing new ones:
1. Hang a wind chime in the South-West corner of your house. The wind chime can be made from any metal like copper, brass or aluminium, but there should be at least five metals in it. You can decorate this chime with shells, crystals and other stones as well.
2. The corners of a room have their own importance in Vastu but very few people pay attention to them while designing their homes! To create balance as well as prosperity, the corners of the home should not have any decorative items.
3. The corner where the staircase is located should not be cluttered with too many things. You can even keep a statue of a man in that corner to make it auspicious.
4. Water bodies like plants, ponds or pools attract wealth, so you should plant them near your living room and other profitable areas of your home! This will help you get more prosperity and happiness near these areas! Also, consider using more water elements inside as well as outside your home to bring positive changes in your life.
5. Finally, light some candles around any water body (inside or outside) every evening for about 20 minutes after sunset and this can protect you from negative energies in your house by weakening their effects on you.
6. It is also good to move heavy furniture from one room to other so that the energies of the rooms change every couple of months.
7. The energy in your house changes when you enter and leave home, so it is important to cleanse it after you come back from travelling or if you have been occupied with any negative thoughts or actions during your absence at home.
8. Even a leaf fallen by accident on the floor can cause disturbances in your life! So we should consider making our homes tidy and clean.
9. Growing plants around our living areas is a very good idea as they can give us positive energy, coverage against negative energies and even help purify the air in our houses.
