Also, how is the case of using the Master bed room by me and spouse - any remedy for the same. If we (me and spuse) take the south west bed room then can the master bedroom be used as any other bedroom - my kid (son) or my parents.

    Thanks,

    The NE toilet should not be used at all. So incase of worse case, SE that too not as bathroom as far as possible. As said before, keep raw salt & sphatik stone in both the bathrooms.

    As far as m.bed is concerned, have considerable amount of green color & place melanite stone in SE corner of the bedroom. However, it is better you & your spouse don't use it. Other in family should also not use it but still after doing these 2 things, it will help you to some extent for sure.

    I am considering booking a 2BHK (unit no 4) in the floor plan attached. Would appreciate your views on whether unit 4 is good from a vastu standpoint and if not, whether other units are suitable.

    Thanks a lot, Vamladi

    The flat no. 04 is good but you should not use the toilet in North. At the most it can be used only as bathroom.

    And yes, there is some deviation in the angle as seen on floor plan. Remember that this deviation should not be more than 10 deg max. If it is more, better avoid it. Please use compass to find out the exact deviation in the angle.

    Thanks RA. I believe the deviation exceeds 10 deg and is more like 25. I will confirm. In the meanwhile can you pl elaborate on issues with the flat assuming 25 deg deviation? Thanks

  • Hi Real
    Your posts are really a great help for people like me. We are having a tough time after moving to the current place on rental. So we are planning to move to another one soon, in 2 weeks. Please see the attachment. After reading your post I found few things are good with this layout. I have drawn the layout in the paintbrush. Please help.
    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.

  • Hi RA,

    I have been a silent member of this forum for sometime and was primarily looking at only the flat buying threads. However a couple of months back, I was able to finalize a house for my purchase (secondary sale and not a new house) in Mumbai. Though I knew a bit about Vaastu Shastra, I'd never consulted it for my parent's home. 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.

    Intrigued, I too started researching and have seen a few websites and tried to read a book on this fascinating subject. Right now with whatever the Vaastu consultant mentioned and my little knowledge, I am following select options for the house. I haven't implemented any of the pyramids solutions etc. of his though.

    With regards to this, I've select doubts that I wanted some expert to advise me on it (without the use of tantras, pyramids etc.) I went through your posts and thought you would be an ideal person to address them.

    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?

    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)

    3. The Brahmasthana (in front of the Toilet and Bath) is completely empty.

    4. Kitchen is in the south east and cooking faces east. There is however a SE cut, when we complete the rectangle.

    I have attached the excel sheet with the layout for your kind reference. The complete lines indicate the boundaries and the dotted lines are drawn to complete the rectangle (annd they indicate the cuts and extensions wherever applicable). I've marked the relevant window portions also accordingly.

    Seeing this and with the data above, would you suggest any changes / additions with your vast experience in this field.

    Your comments would be very helpful to me and I appreciate you taking the time to address them.

    Many Thanks

    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.

    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 ......

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
