Galloping horses in the northern sector are beneficial
Q: I am a 29-year-old Chartered Accountant working in a multinational company. Although I give my hundred per cent at work, I do not get the due appreciation and rewards from my company. Lately, I have been extremely disturbed as I feel that my efforts have been overlooked as a result of which I have lost my drive to work harder. Please advise.
A: The southern sector is associated with recognition and appreciation as it is ruled by the fire element and nourished by wood energy. I suggest that you have a close look at the southern sector of your home. Enhance this sector with fresh plants and red flowers, which when placed here will be very effective. If you find it difficult to use real ones as it calls for a lot of maintenance, you can even opt for silk flowers.
Paintings of birds like parrots, rooster, macaw and phoenix are excellent symbols for boosting your career. Galloping horses, shooting rockets and globes placed in the northern sector prove to be fruitful. Your achievements like trophies, shield and certificates should be lavishly displayed in the southern corner. In case you do not possess any of these then paint the south wall of your study in red and light nine tall candles in green and red every evening here for a few minutes.
Q: I am a regular reader of your column and find your tips extremely interesting and useful. I am about to get married and my room has been newly renovated. It has been designed in such a pattern that the false ceiling of my room is slightly sloping. My bed is under the lowest point of the ceiling and I am unable to shift it from there. I have not been comfortable while sleeping ever since the renovation has been completed. I feel it could be because of the false ceiling. Can the ceiling have any effect on my sleep?
A: If you have a split or sloping ceiling in your bedroom it is always advisable to sleep under the highest point. Since you are sleeping under the lowest point, the energy flowing above is suppressed which in return may cause a lot of pressure on you as a result of which you will get disturbed sleep.
This might cause headaches and uneasiness. If you cannot shift your bed to the highest point then I would suggest you to paste a wallpaper on the ceiling that depicts strips going up. You can even get a texture painting done. This will help to lift the energy upwards and rectify the problem to a great extent. You can also try placing a picture of a growing tree or flower behind the bed.
Q: I am very interested in music since my childhood. I want to pursue it as my career. Please suggest ways in which I can make a successful career in music?
A: Choose a room in the western part of the house for practising, as this is the creativity sector. Your hidden talents will surface and your performance will improve. Place the drums in the north west corner of your room to stimulate energy connected with movement and travel.
This will help you move ahead in your career. Place pictures of Goddess Saraswati and of famous musicians in the northwest area of your room. You should always practice facing the north and hang a painting that depicts a person climbing the stair. This picture will work as an inspiration for you.
