Paintings have a deep effect on the overall environment of a place. These paintings are categorized as “NAVRAS”.Posters and paintings plays a vital role in enhancing the beauty of any room but using them according to Vastu shall further boost the positive vibes in the house. It is a fact that every single object around, has its own energy, aura and vibes – paintings thus would play a prominent role, since it invokes feelings (positive and negative), connected to the inhabitants culture, personal life and likes, wishes and desires too. Vaastu Shastra makes us live in harmony with nature taking advantage of the five basic elements of nature i.e earth, water, fire, air and space and receiving the blessing of the Gods of the directions.
Much of what we know today about ancient culture has been learned from ancient artwork. Philosophy and symbolism play a huge role in every culture. Every object in the house has its own energy has a strong influence on the people staying there. Paintings connects you to your personal life and culture. During our vastu consultation, we have seen many houses having paintings which does not evoke any positive feelings. Artwork add an extra spark of elegance to your house & provides you the vibrant energy that you need to have a great day. Although painting preferences may vary from home to home, there are still some basic rules to kept in mind while choosing an painting.
Try to place a painting depicting water on the northern wall of your living room whereas the poster of rising sun shall help in getting the wisdom waves from the eastern direction of sun, the symbol of knowledge and wisdom.
The southern wall of a living room can be decorated with family photograph, scenes of high-rise buildings and mountains etc. These indicate the support and stability. The western wall is advised to be used for the paintings showing landscape and posters of children. This helps inviting opportunities for the family growth, as believed in Vastu.
Before you purchase paintings for your home you must keep in mind that these paintings should always be purchased for creating a pleasant and peaceful ambiance at home. You can purchase posters of floral patterns, birds, river, flower vases. Avoid putting pictures of crying girl, war or tragedy in your home. This can create negative vibrations in your home.
Paintings and posters showing grief, sorrow, pain, poverty etc. should not be used in a house. The abstract paintings are also not appreciated in Vastu. Scenes of devastated castles, drowning ships, burning buildings etc. have a strong negative impact on the sanctity of the environment inside the building. So they should be kept at the bay.
The correct position and direction of the paintings are two very important aspects that you must surely keep in mind. The direction and the location for the instillation of different paintings are different. The direction from east to south is considered to be very auspicious and pure as it is considered to be the place of solar energy. At this location you can install pictures of flowers, women and other creative things.
If you like clicking photographs and decorating your home with them then you can click pictures of high mountains, flying birds, rocks, aircraft and moving train as they are considered to be great for decorating your interiors.
