Vaastu for Children’s Room- Does it really help?

Vaastu is a combination of Science and Art. If you want to study it in detail, it’s a bit complicated and requires thorough knowledge. But like any other subject, it is also based on some common principles. Let’s keep it simple. Vaastu is ancient science used in construction & architecture design based on certain principles. I have read many books and been experimenting with Vaastu options. Does it really affect us as a person if we follow Vaastu Ideology? Yes, it really does. Vaastu is basically applicable to the placement of certain objects in correct direction. If placed correctly, it works wonders. It brings positivity in the whole surrounding.

Let’s understand children’s room as per vaastu.

Children room is a hub of recreation; however some basic things should be taken care of. Few tips for children’s room are as follows:

  • West direction is ideal for children’s room.
  • Children bed should be placed in South-west portion of room and let your child sleep with head towards South or East direction for peace of mind.
  • The door of children room should not directly face the bed.
  • South-west direction is best for placing furniture. Try to avoid any kind of furnishing in middle or centre of the room which creates obstruction. Let there be play area, keep two baskets where they can dump all the toys.
  • Keep all the furnishing 3” away from the wall.
  • Cabinets and closets should be placed in South or West direction.
  • Avoid recruiting TV, computer/laptop in children room as they affect child concentration instead setup a small library, may be shelves where they can keep comics & story books.
  • Avoid any exposed mirror in children room and do not place any kind of mirror in front for bed.
  • Study table should face East, North or North-east. If room is small then you can go for folding study table attached to the wall. Study area should be clutter free in order to boosts concentration and clutter free ambience is good for generating new ideas.
  • Good lights should be placed in South-east direction while avoid sharp lamps on study table which begets strain. Many study lamps are available in comic characters that can be used.
  • To add freshness in your child’s mood brush up his room with Green or Blue hue. There are many children based theme wallpapers & blinds available that can complement your child’s room.
  • Doors in children room are best at East or North.

My son had turned very adamant lately & it was becoming very difficult to control. We even consulted a psychologist but it didn’t really help. After reading a lot of information on the above subject, I have the changed the direction of his bed from NE to SW & I won’t say it worked like magic but there is improvement in his behavior, he is less aggressive now & at least listens before getting into an argument.

From what I understand, Vaastu principles are based on flow of energies, for example sun rises in the east & it is advisable to keep that area open & clean. Logically you are allowing fresh air & morning sunlight into the house that means flow of positive energy.  There is no harm in experimenting with Vaastu ideas unless it is costing you a lot.
