Bought a property, already moved into a new home or planning to go to shift to a new house this Diwali? You must be in a joyous mood and all set to celebrate the victory of good over evil in your new house. However, have you made sure that all the evil and negative energies inside the home are eliminated? Diwali is the day when all your prayers and simple remedies are believed to work miracles. Hence, this becomes the best day to apply all vaastu principles and purify your house to ensure prosperity, joy and happiness.
Application of vaastu principles to be adopted specifically for Diwali can either be learnt or applied with the help of an expert. As per MahaVastu Deepawali ,2012, some of the significant tips to be kept in mind are given below: Diwali is the most auspicious day to worship the Goddess of wealth, Laxmi. To get the best benefits of puja on this auspicious day, make sure that your prayer room in the new house is in the west. While offering prayers, face the west. The worst direction to have a puja room in the house is south-south-west. Another important aspect that can negate positive effects of your prayers is the presence of ‘red’ colour in your prayer room. Make sure that you remove every trace of red visible in the room. If you plan to buy a photograph of the Goddess Laxmi, then make sure you do not place it in southsouth-west because you might incur financial losses. This Diwali, place it in the west zone of your home to evoke her blessings. While buying paintings to decorate your house, try to pick a one with a green landscape. Placing such a painting on the northern is supposed to attract money to your house. If you are buying artifacts and decorative items for the new house, add a pair of galloping red horses to your shopping list. When placed in the south, this is supposed to provide a steady flow of money. The horses should be placed facing the north. Also include an image of Kuber (the God of wealth) in your list of artifacts. Kuber is believed to have the ability to translate your actions into riches and growth. Place the image on a table or a shelf on a wall in the north zone of the building and see your fortunes changing provided the rest of the zones of the house are balanced. If you have bought a new property, or are moving into a new house this Diwali, then ensure that the building is vaastu compliant. Also, make sure that the new property is lit properly during and is positively energising the right zones. MahaVastu, through over 10,000 case studies, have proven that lights play a significant role in influencing your subconscious mind. Hence, if the lights are rightly positioned, then you will always have clarity of mind, enhanced thinking abilities which, of course, automatically create new opportunities, growth prospects and happiness. Lights, says MahaVastu, have the power to awaken the dormant energies of 16 vaastu zones in our homes. For example, if you are not clear about your goals, then put a spotlight in the north-east, the zone of mental clarity and wisdom. The spotlight ensures that your ambition gets defined clearly, almost as if it is illuminating your goals. Lighting up the south zone with a red bulb is likely to ensure that your professional efforts get special recognition and people’s attitude towards changes positively.
