1. North Facing, there are 2 doors one is east facing
2. Master Bed on SW
3. Kitchen, cooking facing east
4. Pooja room planning for NE Study room

My doubts are:
Is there a cut in the NE?
S/W is a toilet
Kitchen in the middle

Really appreciate your advice on this flat layout. I await for your reply to take a decision. Thank you.
I know that this flat is not available, but in anycase don't worry as the flat isn't good either.

You have yourself answered the issues man, good.

> Cut in NE is bad, but how much is it can't be calculated on paint brush drawing as it maynot be to the scale, but NE cut is bad,

> SW toilet is again bad. Good things even if they come to you will go away like a wind. Stability with money will also be an issue. So, even if money comes, it will be 'wasted' or 'lost' rather then spent for proper reasons,

> Kitchen in middle is the biggest culprit here. Agni will destroy the energy coming from NE towards SW. This centre has to be vacant & free from kitchen & toilets.

Keep scouting man & as it is going to be on rent only, better look only at NE, centre & SW & jump out of your current house. Remember moving out of current house is more important for you now. You can go in minute details when you wish to buy.

However for my house, my brother-in-law insisted I see a consultant and he recommended a few changes + some pyramids etc. etc. to the flat.
First of all thanks for putting trust in me.
The plastic pyramids are junk. Just ask them to prove how plastic pyramids changes the electromagnetic field or gravitational force effect ?
These chaps are those who will charge 4-5k as visit charges & exhort 15-25k in form of remedies. I have personally seen such loot buy such thieves who in no way are doing justice to this science .
Anyways, coming back to the topic ......

Quote:
1. The entrance door is in the southwest corner. How to mitigate the effect of negative energies because of that? Since it is a flat there is no way I can structurally change this. Can a solution be found for this?
> Put copper swastika of 4x4 inches above the door frame.
> The color of the door needs to be brown. This can be painted for safety door & change of laminate/veneer for the wooden door.

Quote:
2. The bedroom is in the north-east corner of the house. Since this was addressable, we are currently sleeping in the SW portion (living room)
It is best not to sleep in NE bedroom as this gives to rise of problems like migraine & conception probs in case of ladies. The concentration also suffers & one wouldn't get proper sleep as this is the area with max energy.

Even if you are sleeping here, this area would be open for guests too. It is therefore recommended that you put a family picture or atleast the pic of the owner of the house here.

The furniture here should be made as heavy as possible so as to restrain the good energy from flowing out. SW being earth element, use brown color as much as possible in SW area i.e. your living room.

Quote:
3. The Brahmasthana (in front of the Toilet and Bath) is completely empty.
Very good, no issues with it. In evening though see to it that there is no darkness here & the area is well lit.

Quote:
4. Kitchen is in the south east and cooking faces east. There is however a SE cut, when we complete the rectangle.
SE cut is there but as kitchen is in SE part, lot of this effect of cut is reduced. Just ensure that black, blue & red is not used here.

In addition to it, these are following rectifications required -

> Bath/toi is in North. Keep raw salt & sphatik stone here. Replace it after 15 days. Use exhaust fan to keep the air clean. Make sure that bath/toi are kept clean & have white color in it, be it tiles or the paint, including the ceiling.

> As NE bedroom is not used for sleeping, keep the pooja room in NE corner facing west, so that when you sit in front of it, you face east.

> Need not worry about extended NE part. Its OK.

> For NW cut, the curtains of living room on North wall in NW part should be pure white in color. The wall too should be pure white in color.
You can put picture frame of white flowers here, but ensure that there is no single flower but 2 or more.

> If kitchen/dining is adjoining to each other, have a partition done between dining & kitchen. Ensure that gas stove or hob is not visible while eating.

Hope this helps. If some more queries, feel free to revert here.

Thanks a lot for your kind words. Appreciate it.
Fact is I have suffered a hell due to junk property as it was bad according to Vastu principles. The consultants whom we hired were more interested in extracting money than giving proper solutions. It was then that I started to learn this wonderful science & I have personally experience good changed after incorporating it in my daily life & so have rest of the people whom suggestions were given. And I do this as a hobby with an intention to help people to get rid or atleast reduce probs in their life & I feel happy doing that.

Thanks once again.

Hi Real

Thank you once again. Your post is highly informative and that is the source of my little knowledge. Here I am troubling you again with a new one.

I understand that the image is not on scale but it is drawn based on the best guess.

1. Bedroom 1 is the master room but we are planning to use it as study room and keep bathroom door closed.
2. Bedroom 2 is proposed master bedroom. Bed placement is to keep the head South direction.
3. Bedroom 3 is the smallest room, plan to use as a storage cum maid room.There is an attached toilet with 2 doors. The door next to main door will be closed. But I am still worried as it is on the SW corner Any remedy?
4. Main door facing West, ~5 degree deviation. will put a copper swastika of 4x4 above the door frame, main door color is brown. Got it from your previous post
5. Kitchen is in the North. Not sure how good/bad it is. Currently cooking is facing west, trying to put some arrangement to change it to East.
6. 2 balconies, highlighted in green color
7. Cupboards are highlighted in brown color.

Appreciate your comments.

Dear Realacres,

Thanks a lot for doing great service. Earlier, I had inquired about a house with north east cut and presence of lift there. We dropped the idea of purchasing that house as we did not want to proceed half heartedly. After rejecting so many houses( I saw only NE aspect - no cut, no wash room}, finally, we have zeroed on one house, door no. 4 with NE entrance in the attachment.
Can you please advise about this flat and let us know any flaw in this house. Also, I want to know whether safety door can be installed in NE entrance as that amounts to adding weight. Can we keep Pooja toom in NE portion of kitchen?

Thank you so much and waiting for your valuable advice


With best regards,


Gurups

Thanks RA for your very detailed response. I really appreciate you taking the time out and effort to address my queries.

1. I'll surely put the copper swastika above the door frame. It would be very useful if you could possibly point out places online shops / offline shops at which I could get it at. I am based out of Mumbai. I had read somewhere that placing a mirror on the wall opposite to which the door opens also dissipates the negative energies of having a SW entrance. Do you concur?

2. The door colour currently is brown and so is the safety door colour too. So luckily thats worked out in my favour.

3. Ya as you've very correctly pointed out, there have been progeny issues for the earlier couple (the sellers) because they slept in the NE bedroom. This was confirmed by them only when the Vaastu agent visited the house for inspection. Hence my wife and I too are wary and don't sleep there. When we did try for a couple of days sometime back, she had a very disturbed sleep. That confirms the other portion too of high energies in this corner of the house. The fact that the entire vertical section of the bedroom falls in the north east corner of the " Apartment Complex Plot" too doesn't help.

4. The furniture in the SW corner is the heavy showcase and is already of brown colour. Only thing the colour of the wall may require some change. I'm yet to repaint of the apartment as per my choice.

5. For Brahmasthana, since it is enclosed on all sides by walls, I will put on the lights in the evening as per your suggestion.

6. Kitchen has light green hue everywhere including the cabinets. So I guess that should do currently.

7. For bath / toilet, I'll follow as you've suggested with the raw salt and sphatik stone. The replacement was only for the raw salt right? Can't replace the sphatik stone every 15 days If you could give pointers on where I could procure, it'll be very useful. The current tiling is light blue with white ceiling. Hope that too should do for both the bath and toilet.

8. The NW portion curtains - I'll buy white for them.

9. The kitchen and dining do not see each other. So I guess partition need not be done.

Again many thanks for your kind suggestions. Hope it'll lead to betterment overall.

Thanks.

No probs man, proceed.

Good. This is ideal place for study room. You can have your PC here too, you face sitting North. In the NE corner, have pooja ghar as well.

Quote:
2. Bedroom 2 is proposed master bedroom. Bed placement is to keep the head South direction.
Bedroom 3 should be M.bed. Sleep with head at South.
Bedroom 2 is SE, direction of agni. Never sleep here.
In the meantime, keep rose quartz balls in SE bedroom.

Quote:

The one who sleeps here dominates the house as this is the place of earth.
Having servant or maid here is not at all recommended.
No remedies here. What you can do is demolish the wall between SW & SE bedroom & have a new one made either of gypsum plasterboard (as this fast & light) or conventional one with bricks. This will reduce size of SE bedroom which can't be used in any case & increase the size of SW bedroom.
This will be tedious job but once done, you will reap its benefits for life.

Quote:
4. Main door facing West, ~5 degree deviation. will put a copper swastika of 4x4 above the door frame, main door color is brown. Got it from your previous post
Good. Many people are learning which I really appreciate.

Quote:
5. Kitchen is in the North. Not sure how good/bad it is. Currently cooking is facing west, trying to put some arrangement to change it to East.
Frankly not much can be done when kitchen is in NE-North-SW.
To reduce the intensity, paint the kitchen in yellow color or atleast have some color element of yellow here.
Cooking has to be done facing east, & in SE part of kitchen.

Quote:
6. 2 balconies, highlighted in green color
Is it possible to keep swing in NW balcony ? If not atleast have hanging chair here. Vayavya or direction of wind is best to keep swings, hanging chair etc.

The best part is you have bigger balcony on east.
Have tulsi in NE corner of the balcony which is also NE of your house. Lit oil lamp & incense stick in front of it daily. Tulsi has tremendous power to reduce Vastu- doshas in the house. It also emanates positive energy.

You can have red rose plants in SE corner of the balcony. Ensure that this balcony is kept light & clean.

Quote:
7. Cupboards are highlighted in brown color.
All are good except for the one in bedroom 1 as it it placed in NE of bedroom.
Shift it to west, south or SW.

The NE is really good & this is the best flat amongst all 4. But it has other issues, mainly the bath/toi.

Toilets in North are very bad, will lead to drain in finances. And the common bath is in North + part of NE. So, you end up with only 1 bathroom, that of NW on North wall which is attached to M.bed. Are you OK with it ?

Quote:

Major flaw mentioned above. As far as safety door is concerned, having 2 doors one on another itself is a Vastu-dosha. Also, door should open inwards which is not the case with safety door. Same people say for security, it is necessary but man, who said it had to be safety door only ?

You can replace existing door with secure doors like 'Entasafe'. Single door but combines strength of safety door + does job in single door. You can also have night latch or chain attached to the door for the same.

Also check out the bolt locks of godrej. You can place 2 locks apart from regular one on the door without additional weight. All this is sufficient to make entrance door secure. Last but not the least, you always have the option of home security system.

And 2nd thing would be the m.bedroom. It spreads from NW to SW. The cuplrit here is the layout which is suryamookhi (East to West) & not chandramukhi (house should run from North to South).
This means, the common or child bedroom is better situated as m.bed as it has south + SW which is better than SW + NW. Is this again feasible for you ?

Coming to pooja room kitchen, NO it should be not. The main reasons are -

> It is open for all, including maid etc.
> Women will go in kitchen even during periods, which means going near pooja room which is bad,
> Kitchen is place of agni. Will you be able to stay comfortable at such hot place ? If not, why god ?
> Here is the place where gods will be placed lower & things like utensils, hob etc. higher which is again bad.

And yes, hanging of pooja ghar is even more bad.

So, no pooja room in kitchen at any costs.

All in all, it were the toilets, both on North wall which play spoil-sport. Had you purchased this flat, some remedies would have been given but note that remedies only reduce the impact & not eradicate it. To get good effect, nothing substitutes proper structure itself.

To conclude, though this flat is better of the lot, it still makes sense to scout for some more flats seeing the practical difficulties mentioned above.

Mirrors are risky business as it magnifies things, good or bad.
Mirrors in SW are not recommended & creating false image of entrance door is not recommended.

As far as these Swastika is concerned, you can see if you can get one at shops which stock pooja material. If not, ask some small jeweler to get it done for you as it is quite simple. Take a sheet of copper of say 2mm thickness & cut a swastika in one piece from it. You can cut those 4 circles from remaining sheet. Place this on a wooden sheet/plank, better if on teakwood & place this on the wall above the door frame of main entrance door.

This Vastu is such a beautiful science that just by visiting the property & based on floor plan one can make out the good & the bad which the owner/resident here is facing.

Yes, thats true & continuous exposure of sleeping here leads to probs with head, especially migraine. Make this pooja room & study room.

Yeah, my mistake.... I should have clarified it before. No need to replace sphatik stone every 15 days but only the raw salt.

Raw salt is available at any kirana store for around INR 5/kg.
For sphatik, check out the guys who sell gemstones. You may get one even at good pooja material shop. Just ensure that it is original one. And to test it, the simplest thing is to hold it tight in the hand & you should feel cold in your hand while holding it.

Tiling, paint to bathroom is OK.

OK. No need for partition then.

Do what has been mentioned above & tell me the results after 2-3 months.

And yes, don't forget to use chandan incense stick everyday & plant tulsi in house, preferably in NE, North or East. Tulsi has tremendous power to reduce Vastu-doshas. Also use mantra chanting machine to increase the positive vibes in the house.

I don't even know how to thank you for the patience and kindness you have showed in responding to each and every queries. Thank a lot for the detailed response :-)

We have decided to use Bedroom-3 as master bedroom for now. Long term we will consider demolish and redo the wall.

Kitchen paint is light yellow in color. The door to kitchen is on the SE part. Lets see how best we can adjust the cooking area there.

We will put a swing in the NW balcony. This is a new info to me.

Will keep Tulsi on NE and Rose of SE corner of the balcony. I got 2 tulsi pots, hope it is okay.

Bedroom1 cupboard place, we are redoing as our Pooja ghar, is it okay to hang the pooja ghar on the wall?

Stability of money/job is a big problem for us now. Any remedy for the SW toilet? Lets say if me and my wife not using it or ??

Thanks a lot once again!
