may be an old Sanskrit saying but it is of the great significance in today’s
context. Everyone has a strong aspiration to live a long healthy life but this
phenomena is challenged by modern life style, industrialisation, vehicular
pollution, excess use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides etc. in vegetable,
fruits and fodder farming. These toxins indirectly reach into human body and
make it detrimental. There is one more cause which is related to our living
place i.e. combination and permutations of flow of positive and negative
vibrations in and around our dwelling area. This is the issue on which Vastu
has to unveil few alarming facts about modernised way of living.
house & healthy body complement each other:
healthy mind lives in a healthy body & a healthy body lives in a healthy
house. There are numerous ways to keep ourselves healthy but there are few
methodologies which are not much common in the light of modernity, but they are
of great importance like Yogic Kriya i.e. Pranayam, Reiki, Kundilini Jagran, Pranic
Healing, meditation & Upwas (fasting) etc. These processes are closely
linked with occult methods been in vogue in olden times in most of the
geographic regions worldwide. Vastu is a Vedic science that lays down few
principles to create a healthy environment. Before imagination of a healthy
house, we shall have to ponder upon those key points which define a house to be
healthy. Given below are few main points to keep the abode healthy:
- Let the house breathe: We shall care of this crucial factor only
if we consider a house to be a living organism. One may have come across
the words like life-energy & deadly vibrations. Certainly one may feel
delighted while entering into a small house, a hut or similar little
cottages but on the contrary, he may feel suffocated in a huge Banglow.
Why it happens? It is due to the effect of presence or quantum of life-energy
in a particular premise. To make our house healthy, we must have a proper
arrangement of air circulation. Just feel at the time of morning breeze
that the house seems to be breathing happily. Excess dark and no
ventilation are often the causes of our illness. Thanks to the qualified
architects who never compromise on cross ventilation for bedrooms.
Shortage of space, increase of population and soaring land prices have
added fire to space scarcity & in want of space adjustment, people
have gradually covered all the open spaces like front & rear
courtyards, Varandah, Chowk, porch, open shafts and domes. This has
resulted into turning the concrete structures into suffocated walled areas
and this entire suffocation is transferred to human being, making him
unhealthy. Of late many people narrate that they feel cheerful in office
or other areas whereas they feel tense and irritation in their own house.
Just look at the house very minutely keeping the above Vastu guidelines in
mind. If this seems to be one of the causes, just try to open more windows,
ventilators and doors.
- Space to be enjoyed by us: If we notice that the mood, health and
temperaments of the family members are not in tune to the family’s
harmony, just check each nook and corner of the house. There may be some
negligence on our part. Sometimes we let the house become a cluttered one
or a mini scrap yard by ignoring the dumping of empty useless bottles,
torn off tyres, broken furniture, old news papers, crack mirrors and
glasses, cartons, wood or stones. This we would have done in view of using
them some day or thought to settle it to scrap dealer etc. on some
holiday. But practically it never happened. We should give our house due
respect by maintaining it neat and clean, then only it will care for us.
- Interior related factors: In
today’s context when the size of rooms has narrowed down, it is advised to
use light colours in the interiors of the room. This shall not only give a
feel of grandness but also it will help in saving the electricity bill.
Reduction in using the electricity shall result into controlling the
excess electro-magnetic radiations, which shall forward the better living
conditions and better health. The EMR above .7 mili gauss is really
hazardous to body cells, heart, skin and soft body-tissues. Therefore try
to keep all the electric & electronic gadgets at a maximum distance.
Mobile phone, charger, stabiliser, TV, fridge, computer and room heater
are few of the items which are not necessary to keep in close to our bed.
So avoid each negative thing that you can.
the bedroom: Just check your head direction
while sleeping. Try to keep your head in south as a first preference. If
not possible, then east & west pointed head is also good, but never
have the head in north while sleeping lest the same-pole detraction
phenomena shall not only hinder the sound sleep but also impose an unconscious
strain on heart. This is due to the scientific cause in which the northern
pole of the earth reacts with the north pole of human body i.e. head.
upper pole of everything on this earth is a north pole, so is our head.
Presence of iron in our blood is also responsible for the strain on heart
while sleeping in a same position for hours together. The second factor is
to care for the neatness inside the bedroom. What happen when the floor,
cabinets, side tables, almirah etc. are found to be over burdened and mismanaged?
It also be a cause of unnecessary tension and a hindrance to sound sleep.
It is our sleep that plays a vital role in our output of the next day
& it is the output of the next day that is the reward of our perseverance
turning into financial gains. Needless to say that a financially sound
family can easily afford the good food stuff like fruits, pulses,
vegetables etc. of superior quality that too helps us attaining good
