What is Vastu?
The ancient science of building, or “Vastu Shastra” in Sanskrit, is 7,000 to 10,000 years old and comes from the Vedas, the sacred texts of India which also gave us Yoga, Ayurveda (the science of life), and Jyotish (Indian astrology). The Chinese art of Feng Shui actually came from Vastu 3,000 years ago and was changed for geographical and cultural reasons. Vastu is about balancing the 5 elements (air, space, fire, water, and earth) and 9 planets so that energy, or prana, moves correctly through any given space. Optimal energy movement and placement of the elements brings greater harmony, prosperity, health, and reduces stress. This applies to any space: living, working, or playing. Ideally, the land and house you live in should line up with the poles of the Earth. It is not necessary to tear down walls or dig up areas of your lot. There are minor corrections and devices that can be used to help energy flow in the direction that brings optimal life abundance.
It makes a difference!
Thank you again for your wonderful work. I noticed a difference the same evening. Everyone in the household slept noticeably better after your work and we continue to feel more peaceful and centered every day. It almost feels as if some stress that was always present is just gone! Even our pets are calmer!

Some Principles of Vastu
The Five Elements
According to Ayurveda (the science of life) and Vastu (the Vedic science of architecture), we and our environments are microcosms of the macrocosms of the Universe. In other words, the elements that make up the great outdoors also make up us and our environment. According to the Vedic philosophy of creation, first there was sound, from sound came air. From the friction of air came fire. From the heat of fire came water, and as the water evaporated, we got earth. Ayurveda reduces the stress in the body by balancing these five elements. Vastu Shastra also reduces stress by balancing the same five elements in the environment. Vastu seeks to protect us from the harshness of the wind, rain , sun, geopathic imbalances and electromagnetic distortion.
The Cardinal Directions & Planetary Influences
Energy flows into a building from the North and East, splits, and moves around and settles in the South West. If there are missing corners or extensions in a structure some of that energy gets stuck and throws the five elements out of balance, creating stress.
Blocks in these areas of your environment have negative influences on your life:
* Northwest (Moon): Influences the mind and relationships
* North (Mercury): Influences the throat and finances
* North East (Jupiter): Influences the head and spiritual growth
* East (Sun): Influences the heart and general overall health
* South East (Venus): Influences the liver and energy levels
* South (Mars): Influences the kidneys and career
* South West (Rahu): Influences bones and support from family and friends
* West (Saturn): Influences kidneys and education/creativity
* Center (Sun): Influences the heart and communication/general overall success and prosperity
