Q. I have recently taken a shop on rent to run a boutique. The shop faces the northwest direction. Is it the right direction for a shop? If not, kindly suggest a remedy.
Ans. Is a good direction for your business. You may go ahead. But you haven’t mentioned other geographical features of your shop, such as the position of other adjoining roads to the shop. These factors can affect your business.
Q. In your columns I have read about negative energy in a building. We shifted to our new accommodation a few months back and we have been experiencing negative energies since then. The situation is such that my children are now afraid to live alone in the house. Is it a vaastu defect? Please suggest a remedy
Ans. You need not worry. Generally, old buildings which were occupied by other people have underlying negative energies. You should get in touch with a professional vaastu consultant to get these influences removed. Negative energy can easily be converted to positive energy.
Q. I am facing financial problems. I have been trying hard to improve my condition but all efforts have gone in vain. There is a peepal tree in front of my house. Is that the reason for my troubles?
Ans. You haven’t mentioned the position of your house. It is correct that a peepal tree in front of a house is not considered auspicious. However, if it is in the south, southwest or west direction, it can protect your family.
Q. My wife has been suffering because of chronic pain in her knees for five years. We have gone through all the necessary check-ups but the reports are normal. A vaastu consultant has told us that a toilet in the southwest may be the cause for my wife’s sufferings. He suggests we shift the toilet. Unfortunately this is not possible. What do we do?
Ans. Vaastu doesn’t aim to make money and leisure, rather it is for a happy and peaceful life. As you have written, a toilet in the southwest is a serious vaastu defect. No doubt shifting the toilet can be a solution to your wife’s sufferings. If it is not possible then you may go for another option of installing stone pyramids. Installation of nine stone pyramids under the guidance and close supervision of a professional vaastu consultant also can help you.
Q. We are a joint family. Though there is strong bonding and harmony among all the members, still we feel stress and irritation while at home. We miss the enthusiasm and happiness. Is this due to any vaastu defect?
Ans. Irritation and stress always persists in an unorganised house. Do care for the -little things – such as shoes kept on the rack properly, overhead water tank not overflowing and not storing waste material in the house. If such things are already arranged properly then you must consult to a vaastu specialist as there may be some other reason for your problems.
Q. I live on the top floor. I want to make a kitchen garden on the terrace. Does vaastu permit this?
Ans. Yes, vaastu permits this. You can go ahead with your plan. It is advisable to keep a few things in mind – grow flowers and vegetables but do not grow fruits. Also avoid cactus and bonsai plants.
Q. Ours is a north facing flat. We have been living here for the past 12 years and have had a great time. Now we want to buy one more flat which is on the same floor that we are living. This new flat is southwest facing. Will it be the right thing to do?
Ans. You can buy that southwest facing flat as a real estate investment but I would advise you not to shift to that flat. If you are still keen to move then do not shift the kitchen there. The head of the family should also keep staying in the old northeast facing flat.
Q. I am living in a society flat in south Delhi. This house has proved really lucky for us. Ever since we have shifted in this flat everything is going smoothly. In the extreme south of our house there is a drain. Someone has told us that this is an inauspicious sign and may prove harmful for us.
Ans. From the map I can see it is located at a certain distance so you don’t need to worry. It would affect you if you were living on the ground floor and the drain was flowing under your house.
