I have entered your house.
I felt warmed and welcomed.
“Vastu”, you whispered in my ear….
The house becomes magical. A harmonious blend of energies to make you feel safe and secure in your first, second or “now” home, which you have culled out of your sweat and grime and stone and cement.
Your haven, your nest, your positivising, rejuvenating space.
Beginning at the beginning. Your entrance to the house. What does it say?
The main door is given a lot of importance in Vastu. This is the place from where positive or negative energies will walk into your house.So take the following precautions and steps and you have it made. Family tussles, work going bad could be a resultant with the wrong kinds of energies plastering onto you and then the house….One could avoid this.
Main or Entrance Door Vastu – Effect of Directions
If you want the house entrance door to the North wall of the home keep it a little to the North- Eastern section of the wall. Locate a window in the North eastern corner. This is to allow the sun and air to come to the home from the East
If in the South:- If the location of the entrance door is on the South wall keep the door towards the South-east. This is good. Then also have another door to the North. This is a must.
If in the East definitely keep it towards the North East part of the wall. West
The North-Western half of the West wall is more suitable for the main entrance as spoken by vastu. Look at the diagram given below for the placements of the doors in the four mentioned directions.
It gives a warm welcome so Vastu says never have the main gate and the entrance on the same line or direction.
That invites all the negative energy to walk in straight with you. Direct flow of energy will be prevented.
Then, the door mat must be there. It doesn’t just wipe off the dust on your shoes or slippers as you swipe on it, but absorbs all the negative energies which might walk in with you.
Another piece of advice. The surroundings leading to the entrance must be pleasant, harmonious, greened and brightened with sweet smelling flowers, creepers and shrubs. Blue, red, gold. Colors splashed off your easel on to the ground.
Making you feel happy as you come in and when you leave for the visit in the vast world.
If steps lead to your house, the number should be odd. The door must be way above the approach way or pathway.
Avoid shadows on the door.
Put a discrete nameplate. This invites wealth, prosperity and good health in your home.
Another thing they mention is to avoid corners. The doorway should not be in a corner and the corners must be further down on both sides.
Wood is considered the best material for the entrance door. Strong, sturdy, not cracked, not damaged. It is better to have a split door than a single sheet. It is more welcoming and more gently closes out someone and doesn’t seem rude. Make the door look beautiful, and well lit. This stop dark energies from coming there.
Have a threshold. This prevents loss of wealth.
Oh my God! They knew so much. The entrance should be clean and clear. This brings in positivity.
There. I said it all. Take heed. Keep these tips in mind when you walk in the door in your new home or renovate your old home. Summing it up.
