Improving Your Bottom Line Through Vastu

read ( words)

The design of your office and home has a great influence on your financial success. If your work or living environments are in harmony with nature they have a positive affect on your prosperity.

In nature all five elements (water, fire, earth, air, and space) are in balance. When a home or office is built that balance gets disrupted. Vastu is an ancient architectural science that balances the five elements in any environment bringing maximum productivity and success.

As a part of this earth, we live in a sea of electromagnetic and stellar influences. Every shift produced in the atmosphere has the potential to affect our actions. Every particle of energy in the atmosphere is linked to the next particle. According to Vastu, the sun produces different qualities of energy on its path from east to west and can influence our daily life. Each of the five elements is associated with a direction and each direction has a particular influence on our business activities. Each function of a business is most optimally supported by an individual direction.

The northeast area of you home or offices is linked to the water element and influences your success. The northeast is good for entrances, managerial offices, research and development. If this area has proper Vastu, finances will grow and there will be positive cash flow. If there is a toilet, clutter, heating or lighting systems, or blockage, growth will be slow.

The southeast, which imparts the energy needed to complete transactions, is aligned with the fire element. Kitchens, lunchrooms in offices, computer rooms, heating and lighting systems, and legal matters produce beneficial results in the southeast. When this area is utilized properly, there will be speedy transactions and profits. If there is a missing corner or blockage, transactions will be drawn out and investments will be sluggish.

The southwest area of your office is associated with the earth element and drives your financial support. A master bedroom in a home, offices for the chairman, directors, and supervisors of a business are most effective in the southwest. With proper Vastu in this direction, financial backing will come easily along with secure savings. If there is a toilet or heating source, there will be cash flow problems and depletion of savings.

The northwest area of your office associated with the air element. It influences the ability to create and communicate. Bathrooms, conference rooms, bookkeeping, and sales work well in the northwest. If this area is balanced according to Vastu principles there will be satisfied customers and clear communications. If there is a missing corner or blockage there will be inaccurate bookkeeping, dissatisfied customers, and confusion.

The central area of a home or office is associated with the space element. If this area is open there will be business and career opportunities. With clutter, toilets, a kitchen, or no open space in the center of an environment, there will be financial limitations.

The earth is a magnetic force and is composed of the five elements, as is our brain. The thalamus is the relay center for all sensory and motor skills in the brain. Neurological research has shown that the firing patterns of neurons in the thalamus function differently depending on which direction one is facing. Our mind is then the interactive result of the affect of the magnetic field on our brain cells. By placing our bodies and environments in alignment with the magnetic axis, we can think and act more in tune with nature.

Our actions will be more synchronized with the forces of nature, much like swimming with the stream as opposed to swimming against it. Many studies have shown that when one faces north at their desk they will be more productive and successful. Studies have also shown that sales increase when a sales person faces north or east when working with a customer.

Unfortunately most modern architecture is based on function alone and is not designed to obey the forces of nature ? the sun, wind, water, climate changes, and the planets. All ingredients of a business ? whether home or office based - are greatly enhanced when the functions mentioned above are in their proper position. If there is imbalance, these can be corrected by a qualified Vastu professional who is experienced in rectifying pre-existing buildings.


Things That Make You Go Mmmm?

To stimulate financial growth in your life place a water fountain in the northeast area of your home or office. Fountains are very effective in moving "stuck" energy, especially when it comes to finances.

Water symbolizes purity and enlivens all living things. Our bodies are made up of 70% water. We can live for quite some time without food, but we cannot survive very long without water.

Fountains with moving water enhance life-supporting energy. Fountains cleanse and absorb negative energy. They polarize light, creating ultraviolet light with ozone, which enhances all growth.
