Have a Name Plate
There is a science behind the idea of having a nameplate outside one’s door. Vastu experts advise people to place a nameplate outside their home. This indicates ownership of the house and it works in the favour of the owners as it helps trace positivity and good opportunities back to you. Swastik is the symbol for wealth and prosperity. It is auspicious to use Swastik symbols in house. On the outer side of your main door, draw holy symbols of Swastik and OM.
Clear your mind. To do so, meditate for at least 15-20 minutes in a day. Chanting mantras also helps calm the mind. A clear mind can help do wonders. Plus, they are known to infuse positivity and good energy in the surroundings. Use wind chimes as the tinkling bells help to break negative energy patterns and help the positive energy to flow easily. Salt is a healer. In this case, placing salt bowls in the corners of the house helps to absorb all the negative energy. To maintain the peace and happiness of your home it is important that you perform the Navagraha puja and Ganesh puja at least once in three years. This helps to do away with the Vastu dosha from the house. Picture frames that depict tragedy, war, anger or have an eagle or an owl are not good for a home. They invite trouble and are inauspicious. If you have these in your house, remove them immediately.
Light Incense and Diyas
Light lamps, diyas and incense at home each evening and morning. This acts as a cleanser, shooing away the negativity or any evil eye.
Build your kitchen in the south-east corner of the house. If not possible then, the north-west corner is the second best option. However, make sure your gas stove is placed in the south-east direction.
Proof your kitchen against all evils. You can do so by keeping medicines away from the kitchen. This is because a kitchen indicates health and happiness, and medicines indicate otherwise.
To shoo away negative energy, place a lemon in a glass of water. This water needs to be changed every week. This must be done religiously each week.
