All these years the family was under the impression that their house was facing north and everything inside the house was built accordingly. The entrance of a home is the mouth of the house. What you put in the mouth affects the rest of your body.
I instructed the family to take the measurements themselves and walked them through it. And they found out that their house never faced the North. It actually technically faces Northwest. And that is a huge difference. They were told the house was 90 percent Vaastu compliant and I had to break the news that it was not even 30 percent Vaastu compliant.
I went through the details with them based on their current home, what would have happened in their lives both at home and office based on the preliminary calculations and they were shocked that every symptom was a match. The wife said to me that she does not want to stay in the house (- this was incidentally their dream home built from scratch... and it is a huge home.) Now she says she wants to run away from the house all the time.
The husband has faced all kinds of trouble in his office and now things have literally hit rock bottom.
When people ask me: “Should I get the Vaastu of my home done first or the office?” my answer is “both”. But if you have to choose one first, it has to be your home.
Home is a replica of the outer and inner world. And both have to be in balance. It is your sanctuary. It is where all members of the family live together and even when children leave, parents sentimentally keep their bedrooms intact. My parents still have my room in their home. It is still called Kavita’s room, and that is where I stay when I visit India.
The office space is different for every family member but if your home space is not a healing space then it will affect the energy in your work space as well. I have fixed people’s offices first as well but I have always felt that until their home space was healed they often get only half the benefit.
However when the home space was healed first a lot changed work-wise. And then when the office space was subsequently fixed, the results were really great.
I will also reiterate this: you have to go to the right person, someone who will explain what they are doing, will walk you through the paces so you learn on the job and are not left in ignorance.
This family has a lot of so called antidotes cluttering their home. The antidotes have to be placed with great care and their results checked. And only one Vaastu fix has to be done at a time so as not to disturb the house. Many antidotes may not be the right ones.
Again if you are running a good time period in your horoscope, bad Vaastu is neutralized to some extent. But if you have a bad karmic cycle and are in a Vaastu non-compliant space, the effects are pretty detrimental.
This ancient wisdom is very precise and accurate, and really priceless if you can find the right Vaastu consultant. We were meant to be in a state of abundance and joy and this earth a nurturing space but the imbalance has left so many people feeling the opposite.
Another very important thing to remember is this: Vaastu principles are there to help you enhance your life. If anyone tries to scare you through astrological predictions or Vaastu analysis, get away from that person.
