| Square-shaped dining table has static energy. Its calming influence helps control the urge to race through meals |
Q We have recently shifted to a flat where the kitchen and the dining area fall in the northwest sector of the house. It is really amazing to note that none of the family members sit here for a quality time and have their meals. They are always in a rush to finish their meals. The maids are also continuously working non-stop for 12 hours at a stretch. I am really fed up. Is the northwest sector of the house creating problems? Please help.
A: You have rightly spotted the problem. Northwest quadrant of the house is governed by the element of air with its property of quick movement. This does not allow anybody to sit there for a long stretch. Worse would be if the dining table is round in shape as this particular shape further helps the energy to move very fast. You can rectify this problem effectively by having a square-shaped dining table that has static energy. Its calming influence helps control the urge to race through the meals. You should also keep a heavy stone in the pure northwest corner to suppress the ruling movement. Ensure that it is placed on the floor and nothing else is placed in this corner that depicts movement. This will greatly help in giving maids some rest.
Q: I have recently bought a piece of land and will soon be planning its interior layout with the architect. I always had a fascination of building the house right in the centre of the property. Do you think it is advisable to do so? If not then please guide me with its correct location. I would be glad if you could give me some more important guidelines on my new house.
A: The houses that are built in the centre of the property cover the sacred centre of the space, which is known as the Tai Chi area or Brahamsthan. Such structures block the positive energy that emanates from this realm and radiates into different directions. As a result, the occupants get deprived of its spiritual benefits. It is extremely beneficial to have your home built in the southwest quadrant of the property. Since this part of the property is governed by the earth element, the family enjoys a good, stable and happy life. You must also consider having a water feature in the north, east or northeast of the property. It helps to collect the cosmic energy and vital life force that enters the property to nourish its residents. It gets beautifully contained in the house if there is mountainous support behind the house towards south, west and southwest. The area towards north, east and northeast should be relatively kept open and light whereas the south, west and southwest should be made heavy and dense. The similar principle applies not only to the property alone but also to each room and enclosed area. This means that you must honour the basic five elements and all the four cardinal and inter-cardinal directions in your property.
Q: I have an option of buying flats that face east and west. Kindly advise me as to which one would be beneficial for overall health, wealth and prosperity.
A: An eastern entrance is undoubtedly the best option as it receives the blessings of the Lord of the Sun and the house gets filled up with its beneficial solar energy. The rising energy of the Sun also brings with it new opportunities, inspiration, hope, health, wealth and happiness for its occupants. The main door that opens to the west is associated with the energy of the setting sun. This entrance is also fine as it showers the house with peace and quiet and helps its residents to settle well in life. You must keep in mind that the internal layout is as important as the entrance of the house. So do not overlook that aspect.
