Modern lifestyle is detaching us from a good health. It is important to live according to vastu principles to ensure good health. We also observe that nowadays couples are facing problems in conception or have high risk pregnancies. Vastu also provide tips to ensure conception and smooth pregnancy. The center of the house, workplace as well as that of each and every room is very important as it is connected with health and is considered to be the heart of the house or workplace. Center means Brahmasthan, this would be the meeting point of all the energies from different directions of the home.
- If you or any of your family members face health problems, check the Brahmasthan for vastu defects at house.
- Heavy objects, wells, lifts, stairs and toilets are totally prohibited in the Brahmasthan.
- A well in the Brahmasthan may lead to health problems for the house owner and affect the prosperity. According to "Manasara", a temple can be made in the Brahmasthan of the house. You can have a courtyard in the Brahmasthan preferably open to the sky, which can be used as a get-together for the family members.
- A staircase at the exact center of the house would lead to health problems according to vaastushastra.
- Make sure that there are no overhead beams running through the center.
- Another cause for a lot of diseases is an imbalance of the fire element. If your house faces South with a slope towards that directions, or if the generator room is to the North-east and the underground water tank is in South-east, the possibility of health problems, does exist.
- The boundary wall should be as high as the gate. Place an image of lord Hanuman facing south. You can also grow citrus plans on either side of the gate. Shift the heavy weight generator towards North-west or Southeast and the water tank to the north or north-east.
- If the kitchen is not located in the fire zone, i.e. south-east the occupants are vulnerable to health disorders. Lighting a candle in the fire zone daily becomes as important for good health as sleeping with your head aligned towards the South.
- If you are a couple who wish to conceive, ensure that you use the north-western room (as per the element of Air) till your wife conceives a child.
- To ensure a smooth pregnancy, i.e. no health issues to the mother, the pregnant woman should always sleep in the south-west bedroom. If this is not possible, a bedroom in the north-east side is also a good choice.
- However, pregnant women should always avoid sleeping in the north-west room during their entire period of pregnancy.
- An expectant mother should always avoid dark colors such as dark orange, red, black. Instead she should opt for subtle, pleasing colors such as light blues, yellow, white and pastel green.
- Wall colors in the room should be pleasant as well. One can opt for light shades such as pink, purple or even indigo as it is a soothing colour.
However these are only a few points, vastu is a deep science and is not limited to this. Many permutation combinations have to be applied to ensure a vastu complaint space for good health.
