Get cured from Feng Shui

Those who live in a city do not have much choice regarding the direction of the plot or house faces. Thus one can adapt intelligent planning and decor to remove the ill-effects of main doors, irrespective of the direction.

* If your main door faces south, you could paint it deep maroon, shades of pale yellow or vermilion red. Placing green and healthy plants on either side of the door will remove the ill-effects of the wrongly positioned door.

* If your main door faces north, the tinkling of the chimes of a six rod metal wind chime will dilute the ill-effects of the surroundings and the main door. Off-white, pale blue and light teak colours are good for this direction.

* If your main door faces east or southeast, placing a single urn filled with water and fresh flower petals to the left of the door from inside will help as East is considered auspicious from a vaastu point of view. The ill-effects of the southeast door can be nullified by the decorative urn of water with vermilion flowers. Placing plenty of plants inside and outside the southeast door will correct the ill-effects of this direction.

* If your main door faces west, the door will bring in the evening sun. This can be controlled by suspending faceted glass crystals near the main door which will refract the evening light and reduce the harshness. The spectrum of colours formed will transform the energy around the doorway.

* If your plot has missing corners it will not be possible to have a rectangular or square site. The simplest method will be to re-create the missing corners inside the house with regard to the specific direction and type of energy. For example, if a portion of the north and east segments are missing, placing water features or an urn of water with flowers at the northeast sector of the living room will alleviate the ill-effect.

Placing plants like tulsi at the northeast sector of the plot or even in balconies can transform any bad energy into positive and good energy.

Creating the right environment and the right frame of mind will ensure that feng shui or vaastu gets activated faster and better.

Power Of Plants And Flowers In Your Home

  1. Plants are auspicious from the point of feng shui. It is always good to grow plants in the house, especially wooded plants.
  2. Plants in the office also bring about increased luck in your career. Place plants in the east, south or south-east corners of your office for maximum luck.
  3. If you are a married couple and want children, avoid putting flowers in the bedroom. Instead, place a basket of fruits in your bedroom. Fruits, especially pomegranates, are a symbol of fertility.
  4. Don't place thorny plants inside your home. Thorny plants do form a protective shield, and could be placed outside the home. Don't place them too near the front door. They could be placed a little further away from the door, or in the balcony.
  5. Don't place bonsai plants inside or outside the home. They represent stunted growth.
  6. Trim your plants regularly. Overgrown plants promote bad energy. Similarly, trim trees in your garden regularly. Don't let them overwhelm your house.
  7. Fresh flowers bring luck and fortune in your home. Place fresh flowers in your living room on a regular basis. However, once they die, throw them out. Don't leave dying flowers in your home.
  8. Avoid placing dried flowers in your house. They are believed to bring misfortune. Artificial flowers are a far preferable option and are believed to bring luck.
  9. Do not place any flowers, plants or any other auspicious feng shui symbol in the bathroom. The good luck will backfire and turn into bad luck.
  10. Ever noticed lemons (nimbus) hanging on the entrances of shops? They are believed to ward off the evil eye, according to Hindu superstitious beliefs. Similarly, oranges and lemons are believed to be powerful symbols of fortune, and bring prosperity to the home. They should be placed at the entrance.
