Vastu expert Ashna Ddhannak enlists ways to ensure your home radiates good vibes. Vastu Shastra is the ancient Indian science of architecture and acts as a guideline to designing your home in the way that enhances positive energy.
Vastu for a Positive Home
For a house to become a home, it needs to radiate the right kind of energy. According to a number of traditional beliefs, each home comes with its own energy type. A person dwelling in a house comes under the influence of a specific energy field, which in turn influences him in one way or the other. Therefore it’s very crucial to understand the link between the healing art of Vastu and our homes in honing positivity and good vibes. Keeping in mind the 'ready-to-move-in' houses (where architectural changes are not possible), Vastu expert Ashna Ddhannak, founder and owner of Enlightening Lifestyle, enlists ways you can bring balance to your home.
Vastu Shastra is an ancient guide for a positive home, right from the entrance of a house to the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, outdoors, and courtyard.
1. Vastu for the Main Entrance: Doorway
According to Vastu Shastra, the main entrance to a home is not only the entry point for the family, but also for energy. The main door should face the north, east or in the north-east direction. As per Vastu, the main door should be constructed in a way to ensure that when you step out, you face the north, east or north-east direction. Considered as the “archway to victory and progress in life”, the main door should face north, east or in the north-east direction. It must be constructed in a way to ensure that when you step out, you face the north, east or north-east direction. The main door to your home should be constructed with superior quality wood. It should tower above the other doors in your house, and look the most appealing.
