It is often said health is the greatest of wealth one can hope for in life. While dealing with good principles of constructions to ensure prosperity and happiness in families, Vastu Shastra also lays down certain guidelines for the inhabitants of houses to ensure the good health of the body and mind.
In fact, prolonged illnesses of some family member could be due to some setbacks in the homes which could be diagnosed through professional help and cured for good. Implementing some simple Vastu tips in homes can ensure the health and happiness of the family members.
To enhance the overall health, it must be made a daily practice to sleep with the head placed towards the south direction. Those people with Vatha and Khapha body constitutions must sleep on the left side and those with Pittha constitution need to sleep on their right side. Ensure that the staircase of the house is never at the centre of the house which shall give way to several health issues. Therefore, position it in a corner only.
The centre portion of the home is called Brahmasthana which needs to be kept empty. Never place heavy furniture in the centre and leave this portion empty. Overhead beams running right through the centre of houses can lead to distressed and disturbed minds.
Never plan any concrete built-in structures in the centre of the house. The Brahmasthan must also be free of any pillars, beams and other heavy things. As far as possible, keep this position empty. It is always a good idea to place a crystal grid or pyramid charged with Reiki in the Brahmasthan of the house so that it can energise the house.
The imbalance of the fire element in the home can cause sickness of family members. Some of the ways in which this can happen include the following. House facing the south with sloping towards this direction, the generator room open towards the northeast direction and the underground water tank positioned in the southeast side are some instances where the fire element is not balanced.
Under such a situation, ensure that the gate found along the south wall is kept shut as much time as possible, make the gate in wood and position it high enough so that the road lying outside is not visibly seen. To ensure good health, arrange to light a lamp in the southeast direction inside your home.
Placement of the kitchen in homes is a highly critical decision. If the kitchen is not located in the fire zone meaning the southwest of the home, then the occupants of the house shall be vulnerable to several health discomforts. Therefore, while building the house, it is the most essential thing to plan the kitchen in the southeast of the layout.
Plan the boundary wall of the house at the same height as the main gate. Arrange to plant some citrus plants on either side of the main gate to ensure the good health of the inmates. Heavy generators must be placed in the southeast or northwest direction and the water tank must be planned either in the north or northeast. Placing an image of Hanuman in homes is a remedy to several Vastu setbacks which can assure health and happiness.
