Vaastu Shastra and Feng Shui

The principles of Vaastu Shastra and Feng Shui can be scientifically and metaphysically explained. Both have nothing to do with religion of philosophy. The aim of these principles is to bring about harmony between man and the environment in which he is living. The aim is to bring about harmony between man and cosmic principles and teach him to show deference to nature and its laws.

All human activity takes place in a particular place and at a particular time. Vaastu and Feng Shui help us create an environment that is favorable to our well being and one that is in tune with cosmic order. But while doing this, we cannot expect these two theories, to do away with all the problems that affect our environment. By applying the principles of Vasstu and Feng Shui we can only improve our environment. While trying to improve out environment using the principles of either Vaastu or Feng Shui, we must consult experts on the subject. If these principles were so simple and easy then, everyone who has read anything on both should be an expert. This is not the case. So while planning to make changes in the environment using these principles always use the best expert.

Vaastu principles are based on the rays of the sun and the energies of five elements. For these principles to be effective, they must to applied as a whole and not in bits and pieces to suit immediate needs. You must apply Vaastu principles with complete belief and with respect for its laws. If not the principles will not withstand testing times. The remedies provided by Vaastu are based on compass direction. A particular environment for example a house is studies based on the year it was built. In Feng Shui remedies vary based on time and other astrological calculations for that house. In Feng Shui the most important thing is to determine the chi of the house. After this the expert will analyze whether there are any faults in the chi. Both the theories are based on elements and the flow of energy. But it is not advisable to follow principles of both theories together. Do not consult a person who gives remedies by combining the remedies of both. Do not be fooled by consultants who offer discounts.

Feng Shui is the Chinese Art of Placement, which allows the people who practice it to bring about harmony, in our environment from various points of view. Feng Shui uses an octagonal chart called the Ba Gua that helps us to decide which areas in the house or building is relevant to each of the Eight Aspects of Life. Namely:

  1. Career
  2. Helpful People and Travel
  3. Children and Creativity
  4. Marriage and Relationships
  5. Reputation
  6. Wealth
  7. Family and Health
  8. Knowledge and Self-Cultivation
After these areas are determined furnishing, colors and art that represent the attribute you want to enhance are choose. It encourages the person to positively interact with the area to bring about the desired change. Hence the use of colors and furnishing etc. to match the attribute you want to enhance. Feng Shui uses detailed observation and awareness of everything in nature. Using the principles of this theory to decorate your house is like incorporating the scared in your daily life.
