Here’s the Vastu tips for the success of your business by Vastu Acharya Manoj Srivastava.
The travel, aviation and hospitability industry is going through one of the most difficult phase from the past twelve months and with the resurgence of the pandemic across all continents in recent months have further dampened the morale of our friends in this industry. The increased focus on Indian destinations and few foreign locations have given some hope to these industries.
With so much negativity all around us it is prudent that we create an atmosphere of positivity around us and stay upbeat for better days to come in the horizon.
Vastu is one of the easiest ways to activate the law of attraction to grant your wishes and desires. Vastu remedies act as a message to the universe to fulfil your life’s desires. In this article I will be sharing you remedies which you can implement very easily in your business place as well at your homes to activate the beneficial vastu energies in your environment.
Vastu Shastra is a science that deals with the construction and architecture. It is a part of VastuVidya, and applied with the ‘Atharvaveda’ (Economics), which lays the guidelines for architecture, design and construction and the same principles are applied to business houses. As an ancient science, it describes principles of design, layout, space arrangement and spatial geometry.
Vastu is based on the research by our saints thousands of years ago. They were able to see the subtle energies of vastu with their evolved consciousness and have defined the different rules and tools for living in harmony with the nature and universal consciousness. They were also able to identify shapes, colors, sounds, symbolisms, minerals, stones and plants which can activate the properties of the different directions for the benefit of the mankind.
Rules of VastuShashtra are observed by balancing the five elements of space – ‘Panchabhutas’ (Water, Fire, Earth, Air, and Space). These rules define the directions and state what to place where and what should be avoided for the growth and prosperity of business.
In the current times of the global pandemic, this articles talk about simple vastu cures and rituals to re-activate the business and more so to develop in us the required skills and strengths to tide over these times.
For the travel, tourism and hospitality industry North-West is the most important direction as it is the direction of the Air element and for the business related to travel it denotes guests, passengers and travellers.
Another important property of the North-West energy is to get support from financial institutions and collaborators. If there is a toilet in NW zone, you will feel there is nobody supporting your cause. Not only will it result in lack from banking in terms of overdraft, working capital loans it will also flush any opportunity for collaborations that you are banking on support from travel agencies. If there is green colour which is creating an imbalance of five elements, then your support system will not be stable and will face continuous problems. To ensure a healthy financial support system, you must ensure the NW zone is clean of anti-elements and activities. Ideally, you can place there a painting or sculpture which symbolises financial support. Some of such figurines which can suit your business is model of a plane, AshokaStambh, or even the logo of your travel association. This will draw necessary support for your business from people, banks and other financial institutions in the hour of need. A right colour in the right direction has the power to absorb the negative vibes and convert them into positive vibrations. The best colours for North West is cream, off-white, and lighter shades of yellow/gold or metallic colours like silver are best here. Placing a pair of white horses in the north-northwest zone of your building will ensure financial support from banks and other institutions.
The office building should face either of North, North East or North West directions as it brings good luck and prosperity. Please note that here we are talking about the facing of the building and the main door can be different than the facing. The direction of the main door is determined with reference to the center of the office space. When standing at the center of the office check in which direction is the main door situated. It should not be in the South West and if so it will bring a lot of hardships in business. According to vastu Shastra, the main door or entrance of the office building should face east or north direction. Do not place anything that creates obstacle close to or in front of main entrance.
New customers and new orders are attributed to the vastu energies of North and therefore the North zone of your office becomes important for the success of business. Avoid placing a pantry or a kitchen in the north zone of your office. A pantry in this zone will adversely affect cash flow and receivables.
Is your business looking to increase the number of orders from both new and existing customers then avoiding red or pink colour on the walls of the north zone; this will help in getting new orders.
Placing green plants in the north zone of the office brings in new opportunities.Avoid kitchen, bathroom and sink in the north zone as it will drain away your wealth and career opportunities.Also, avoid placing the dustbin, broom, vacuum cleaner and microwave oven in the north zone to attract more money and opportunities.Hang a painting of a lush green landscape on the north wall of your house to bring in new prospects and opportunities in your life.
The next zone to be considered for business success is the centre of your office. Please note that the centre to be considered is not just a point but the whole central area of the place. The central area of the office should be ideally empty. However, due to space constraints if that is not possible make sure it does not have a wall or pillar. There should not be any clutter in the centre nor there any toilet or pantry. The centre of any space is the creator zone of all energies and for that reason we want the centre to be full of positive energy such that the whole office is vibrating with positivity.
You must have heard that the owner should sit in the South-West of the office. South West is the direction of stability, skills and relationships. Also, the person who spends his time in the energy is the one who governs the place. The owner should sit in the South-West area of the office and face the North direction when sitting. Do not place temple or idols behind the owner’s seat. There should be a concrete wall behind owner’s seat and not any glass structure. His or her desk should be rectangular and not be L-shaped. Any irregular shape creates confusion and should be avoided. There are other good directions for the owner, however that can be determined by a proper Vastu consultation.
To ensure proper cash flow in the business it is necessary to activate the Cash-Flow or wealth direction which is the South-East zone of your office. Place a bowl filled with semi-precious crystals and some silver coins in the South East to activate this zone. Similarly, free the South-East zone of the office from blue and black colours to ensure smooth cash flow of money.
In the end we want our employees to work productively, we want them to contribute to the positive growth of the company. Here are certain vastu tips for positioning the different departments in your office. Accounts department should be in the north and east zone and employees dealing with bank and cash transaction should sit facing east and north direction. All the financial records should be kept in central north or southwest of the cabinet.
Marketing professionals must avoid blue and black accessories and place their workstation in south zone. Their seats can be maroon or brown in colour and they can experiment with green colour to get benefits from contacts. Ideally they should face north to attract more money and newer opportunities. Sales professionals should place their workstations in east zone facing west and avoid yellow and grey coloured accessories.
Senior professionals are required to plan for an organisation, so they should sit in north east vastu zone facing west. North -East is the zone which provides vision and clarity in thought. Red and dark yellow colours should be avoided by them for both seat covers and accessories.You can place an aquarium with nine goldfish and one blackfish in the North-East direction.In order to execute and implement plans more efficiently and effectively, management professionals are advised to sit in the west vastu zone facing east. Red and green colours are a complete no for seat covers and accessories in the West zone. As a general rule of thumb, employees in general should sit facing either East or North directions. This rule of thumb is to be followed when more specific location and orientation suggested above is not possible due to space constraints.
