To know vastu you must understand the deeper meaning of life and always try to explore new dimensions towards all those areas in one’s life for health, happiness and prosperity that one expects in house
In my early years of study, my Guru always reminded me “to know vastu (also known as vastu shastra or vaastu), you must try to understand the deeper meaning of life and always try to explore new dimensions towards all those areas in one’s life for health, happiness and prosperity that one expects in their house”.
Vastu is environment science. The journey to know more begins from our body, mind and our emotions. This is because environment doesn’t only mean things around us but also within us. To ensure health, happiness and prosperity, before reforming things around, we first need to reform within.
When the changes within happens, it automatically starts reforming things around us. This reformation builds a constant interaction between us and around. Let me explain with a simple observation. When you are happy and joyful, everything around is beautiful and loving. This is the interaction and I am talking about.
To build this bonding, we have to work on our actions, attitudes, perceptions and reactions towards both our inner and outer environment. We are constantly communicating with each and everything around us. I am sure, you too would have definitely experienced it if you would have ever talked or interacted with plants, water or for that matter anything in nature. We are all connected through the core universal source of energy.
We are connected to this source through our senses. Our senses are connected to our brain. Our brain controls our glands and our body. Our body reacts to environment as per brain signals generated through experiences via our senses.
So, when we talk about vaastu, how well we reform it, such that it provides positive signals and experiences to our brain via our senses, is what we need to work on.
The major role here, while working on vaastu is focusing on our visual senses (eyes). Which means the area of focus is lights, darkness, colours, shapes, symmetry and dimensions of shapes around us. Around 60 to 65% of the vaastu is balances when worked focusing visual sense.
Balance is Olfactory sense (nose) via aroma and odor, Auditory sense via mantra, music, voice tone and atmospheric pressure and Tacttile sense (touch or skin) via touch, heat, cold, smooth, rough, pressure, pain and vibrations.
We just need to map our spiritual, mental, emotion and physical body with environment to have balance and harmony. Health, happiness and prosperity will flow on its own.
