The Vaasthu guidelines offer ways to maintain the balance between man and nature. Our ancestors had a clear idea about the magnetic fields on earth and their effect on our lives. They based their findings on observations.
One of the basic tenets of Vaasthu is the ideal position of sleeping. The position is based on the magnetic field created around us while we sleep.
Never point your head to the north when you sleep. When you point your head to the north, the magnetic field of your body will be in the same direction as the magnetic field of earth. This will lead to magnetic repulsion.
The result would be physical discomforts and mental problems. On the other hand, pointing your head to the south is ideal. Pointing your head towards the east is also advisable, while west is not an option either.
Students should face north or east when they sit down to read or write. While praying, face the east or north in the morning and west or north in the evening.
Sitting in the right direction is also important when eating also. It is always best to face the east. Facing south or west is also good. It is said that food would be tastier if you eat it facing the east. It is also believed to be aiding in digestion.
Never place the cot under a beam that supports the roof. This may lead to diseases or discomforts. Try not to use metal cots.
If the southeast corner of the house has the presence of water, the residents may fall sick often.
Always face the east while cooking in the kitchen. The toilet should be placed in the south or north.
When you block the magnetic field of your house due to ignorance, you are missing a contented life.
