Colors play a significant influence on the inmates of a home.  It is a proven fact that colors have a great psychological influence on people. Colors do have an effect in balancing our body, mind and spirit. A home is a place where people spend their major part of life. Colors in line with Vastu Shastra attract healing energy into your living space. Colors stimulate unique emotions in people’s life, career, decision, love, compassion, belongingness… and the list is endless. Hence it is important to have the right colors to match the interiors of the home so that it helps people to feel fresh, energetic, strong and live a healthy life.

The way you decorate your home says a lot about you. But unknowingly, we sometimes bring such images, idols or showpieces that disturbs our happiness and positivity and ultimately we ruin our lives by ourselves. I was wondering why there is an increased negativity in my home until I recognize these very important facts. Let’s talk about these 15 things that affect our lives. You may not be knowing the negative effects of these things:

home decor, vastuhome, vastu tips, vastu shastra

  1. Broken or unused clocks- as we all know time is symbolic of Growth. It is highly recommended to avoid keeping a wall clock that is not in use or broken.

  2. Old Calendars- similar to Clock a calendar also signifies growth, so avoid keeping an old calendar on the walls of the house. Also please make sure if you are hanging current year calendar then you have kept the current month and date open.

  3. Cactus, Bonsai or thorny plants- Except Rose and medicinal plants, avoid keeping cactus and thorny plants at your home as these are inauspicious. Do not place any bonsai plant as they represent short/ little growth.

  4. Negative Images- Never keep images that depicts negativity must be removed immediately like- sadness, loneliness, war scene, trees without fruits or flowers, nude, hunting scenes, fight scenes using swords, captured elephant, weeping or crying image.

  5. Taj Mahal Picture or idol- Taj Mahal is considered as an epitome of love but it is actually a grave that symbolizes death and inactiveness. So avoid keeping Taj Mahal picture or idol at home.

  6. Broken furniture- If you have broken furniture, pots or vessels that are not in use and unrepairable. Throw them off to remove negative energy.

  7. Mirrors- Mirrors should be kept wisely. Make sure not to place any mirror in front of your bed. Your image should never be reflected when you are sleeping. Put a curtain or cloth if you have a mirror in front of your bedroom. Legends say if you have broken mirrors at home, it brings bad luck for seven years and a broken marriage too.

  8. Avoid things under your bed- Never keep anything under your bed as it causes disruptions and disturbed sleep. Also, make sure you don’t keep any footwear under your bed before sleeping.

  9. Statue or Paintings of Animals- Don’t put any image or showpiece of any wild animals and birds like snakes, owl, vulture, bat, pigs, pigeons, crows, tiger, etc. Vastu recommends not to keep any picture or statue of a single bird or animal in a couple’s room. Keeping wild animals and bird’s image or showpiece brings Violent Attitude in your life.

  10. Pictures of Ramayana and Mahabharata War scenes- Never place such pictures that depicts fight story or scenes from Ramayana or Mahabharata as it strongly brings rivalry among family members.

  11. Black Door- Avoid black door as your Main entrance door. According to Chinese Feng Shui tradition, a black door invites bad luck to your house EXCEPT if the door faces the North.

  12. Avoid placing Empty Rocking Chairs- Avoid placing empty rocking chairs at home as it invites dark forces to come and sit in it.

  13. Brocken Crockery- if you have broken plates, cups or any crockery, remove immediately. Crockery symbolizes wealth and family so when you eat on broken or chipped plates, you are subconsciously inviting failures and troubles in your life.

  14. Sinking Boat or sinking Titanic Image- I also kept Titanic image at home, until I knew its bad effects. A sinking boat depicts a failing or deteriorating relationship so if you one in your home, throw it immediately.

  15. Nataraja- This is an image of cosmic dancer Shiva and it is found mostly in every dancer’s house. As we see it has two different meaning. One that symbolizes tremendous art form and other symbolizes destruction.

Conclusion- It is good to décor home as you love, but at the same time it is very important to know the adverse or bad effects of these decorative before it’s too late!

Let’s talk on some easy and effective vastu changes to ensure the positive outcome and more money inflow.

  1. Cash Almirah or Locker- It is very important to understand where to keep your cash almirah or money. Place the cash almirah or locker in the Southwest or South wall so that it opens in the North. This is the direction of Lord Kuber. It is believed that Lord Kuber refills the cash almirah so this is how you attract money.
  2. Main door instructions- Never place big or high trees in the Northeast direction outside your home as this creates an obstacle for the cash inflow. Also, keep the main entrance clutter free and if there is any shoe rack, replace it away from the main door or entrance.
  3. Place a fish aquarium- An aquarium is used especially to enhance money, career and luck. If used properly in the right direction, it brings wealth and abundance in the home.

  4. Check these important Vastu Dekho measures to ensure no blockades for the cash inflow-
  • Never place big or high trees in the Northeast direction outside your home as this creates an obstacle for the cash inflow.
  • Lord Kuber and Goddess Lakshmi like cleanliness so ensure that all the windows and doors of the house are properly cleaned. If not, they will obstruct the flow of money and wealth inside your house.
  • Leaking Taps in the house is a BIG NO. Since water is symbolic of money so it is believed that if water is getting waste then money is also getting wasted.
