Signifying the art of living in harmony, both Feng Shui and Vastu Shastra
are rooted in ancient wisdom and philosophy of China and India,
respectively. In compliance with living principles and ancient wisdom,
both these prehistoric schools of thought believe in creating a flow of
positive energy, which is harmonious for living spaces.
With the global advent of architecture, the science of Feng Shui
(pronounced as Fung Shway) is not restricted to China; it has come a long
way to be recognized as a relevant science in today’s lifestyle. It
applies to offices, homes, businesses and any other dwelling. Based on
the principles of balancing energies connected with nature and
environment, Feng Shui attempts to create a positive flow of force to
impact in your prime areas of life. To understand the importance of Feng
Shui practically, surveying a house or business is of utmost importance.
In a dwelling, the Kitchen and the Bedroom are most important features of
a home; the Chinese even bestow the kitchen stove as being the source of
health and prosperity. The birth number, known as Kua in Chinese helps to
determine the best directions individually, even for your kitchen!

Tips on Kitchen

Feng Shui believes that a wrong kitchen direction can bring misfortune to
a family. Also, the kitchen should not be directly below the toilet, or
adjacent to it. It believes that the Kitchen should not be in the center,
and that the cooking gas or stove should not be placed on the same slab
as the sink.
   Water and fire are opposite forms of energy and as water can put off
fire, to avoid friction, they should be separate. Refrigerator is
considered to be a water element too, and hence should be away from the
stove. The best would be a triangle that the cooking gas, stove and
refrigerator form.
   While cooking, the cook should not have his back towards the door to
avoid any feeling of startling while cooking. Reflecting mirrors can be a
solution where all the other factors are sound.
   Overhead lights on a cooking gas are believed to be disastrous. It can
lead to financial crisis. To negate the effects, one can hang bamboo
flutes at an angle of 45 degree.
   Green is a kitchen color and a clutter free kitchen attracts
Chi(positive energy), unused articles are advised to be
discarded(articles not used in one and half years).

Tips on Bedroom

A bedroom door must open completely as it symbolizes allowing
opportunities and fortune. In Feng Shui, bedroom doors that open less
than 90* may mean constricted energy flow and opportunities.
    On entrance, it is advised to place something pleasant—your art, vase
and sculpture pieces or a family photograph. It is a greeting.
    For optimum functionality, there should be a clutter-less area—
closets, almirahs and storage furniture. Symbolically clutter means that
there are things left undone in your life. Organization definitely feels
like empowerment, and brings a feeling of neat space and serenity to any
room, especially bedroom. Resting rooms need to be quiet and peaceful
with little chaos.
   The best sleeping direction would be the one that helps you face the
door. When you get up, your feet should be towards to door to help you
feel in command and control.
   A mirror opposite the door where there is a wall will help circulate
energy. Bright lights above the bed are a big ‘no’.
