2014 WITH DIVINE VASTU TIPS
The beginning of the New Year 2014 is the right time to carry
out some Vastu measures to bring love, peace and prosperity for your entire
family. It's the time for get-together with family and friends and for
strengthening old ties that might have been ignored for some time. While you
welcome the New Year 2014, these Vastu measures will bring along love and luck.
Here are certain Divine Vastu tips that you can follow on New Year’s Eve or
sometime around, to bring peace and prosperity:
- Get rid of all the clutter
and unnecessary things which get accumulated in the house from time to
time. Clutter creates stress, drags your energy down, and limits your
ability to be productive and make lucrative financial decisions. Resolutions
for a prosperous New Year should start with clearing the clutter in your
- Clean the house thoroughly;
look at the places which have been neglected e.g. the furniture that needs
repair and health concerns that have been ignored for long.
- Clear your desk and go
through your files and cabinets in your workplace. Remove all unnecessary
- It's also the time to reflect
back and assess the past and plan for the future. Review those few things
that you desire to accomplish in the New Year and determine your goals.
- Space clearing ritual removes
all negative energies from the space and it can be performed even if you
have not re-painted the house on Christmas. Along with re-painting and
space clearing do not forget to remove all clutter from the house. For
decorations such as, Ilex or holly (Flowering plants in the family
Aquifoliaceae) wreaths, wood figurines, or ceramics (such as the Dove of
Peace) work best in the South-West area of your gathering area to support
bowl of water (‘water’ element) with flowers floating in it (or a punch bowl) placed in
the North-East area of the room you use for entertainment will encourage a
prosperous New Year.
- Place candles, lights, and
red decorations in the South-East area, which is associated with the ‘fire’
stimulate a sense of well-being. Scented candles of pine, vanilla,
cinnamon, and cranberry are festive scents for harmonious holiday
- Hang bells and chimes in the
North-West area, related to the ‘air’ element, to enhance joyous
- Keep the center ‘space’
open and uncluttered to support stress-free communication and encourage
the success of your holiday gatherings.
- After you have re-painted the
house or cleaned it, perform a space clearing ritual. Dissolve a lump of
rock salt in water and mop the floor of the apartment with this salt
water. Take some camphor in a bowl, burn it and walk along the sides of
each room of the house thereby allowing the space to be filled with the
fragrance of camphor. Before performing these two steps, you can repeat a
positive affirmation “By performing this space clearing ritual, my house
is freed from all negative energies and full of positivity. All the
inmates of the house are leading a healthy, harmonious and prosperous life
this Christmas and the full year ahead.”
- If you feel that negative
vibes have been induced into your family life, health, relationship etc.,
wipe the floor with rock salt water for at least seven days. You can even
place a small bowl of rock salt to absorb the negative and stagnant
energy. Remember to change the salt every day.
- Space clearing rituals like
ringing a bell or burning incense in all the rooms of the house can also
help. This physical clearing will also initiate a process of mental peace
- Sit down in a calm corner and
mentally relive all the negative experiences that are depleting your
energies. Clear out those negative feelings and accept the transition of
these events in your life.
- Rearrange your surroundings;
increase your level of physical activity. All this will ultimately
transform into your surrounding into a much more balanced and harmonious
- Hang some bells, bring a new
plant, display auspicious symbols in the living room and decorate the main
entrance of your house and workplace.
- Welcome the New Year by
lighting candles and ‘diyas’ (Clay lights) and burning incense, especially
in the dark corners of the house. If you are not the partying type, just
organize a nice family feast. Even if you have plans spend the time with
friends and colleagues, try to spend the first day of the New Year with
family. Go to a temple or organize a small ‘pooja’ or a ‘hawan’ at home.
It will strengthen the miraculous bonding with the family.
