Indian Feng Shui, known as Vastu Shastra, is one of the oldest forms of Feng Shui. This ancient technique shows how you can harness the energy of the Sun -- through the different compass directions -- to enhance your living and work spaces.
In Vastu Shastra, the Sun’s rays are considered life-giving via north and east directions, but thought to be weakened via the south and west directions. The key to improving energy flow and your ability to attract success lies in creating spaces that are clutter free and well lit. Grab a compass and read on to learn how to combine, elements, directions, crystals and color energy to improve your life through Vastu Shastra
The northeast direction links to the Water element and Jupiter. It symbolizes growth and wealth, both spiritually and financially. Improve cash flow by keeping the rooms in this direction well lit, organized and clutter free. The color white, and crystals, are supportive and balancing in the northeast. If you have an appliance in this area, hang a clear crystal above it to balance the energy.
The north direction, as one of the most potent for the Sun, is powerful for enhancing financial growth. A combination of Air and Water elements, it’s associated with Mercury. Green (through color or plants) is supportive for the north. Hang a rectangular or square mirror on any north walls (especially if you don’t have many windows there) to enhance prosperity. Improve finances by arranging your desk to face north (especially when paying bills). Blue and clear crystals in this direction help balance and recharge your money energy.
The northwest direction links to the Air element, as well as the Moon. Energizing this direction helps you attract love and improve relationships. Blue is a balancing color in the northwest, so include shades of blue, and blue crystals, to improve your love life.
The southeast direction links to the Fire element and Venus. Balance this space with red features, including red crystals, to help minimize relationship tension.
If you’re looking to attract or enhance love, the color yellow is also important, especially in bedrooms, and in south, east or northeast directions.
The east direction links to the Fire element and the Sun. Make sure this part of your home is open and welcoming to the morning Sun. The color white helps expand positivity in the east, as does hanging either a square or rectangular mirror on those walls. Red crystals in the east help improve vitality.
The northeast direction links to the Water element and Jupiter. Keeping this space clear of clutter helps support mental clarity and reduces anxiety. Consider making this part of your home a meditation or quiet space. Clear crystals help ensure that this space stays receptive -- and that your mind remains calm.
