Vastu deficiencies or defects

Is your life far from abundance and wonderful feeling? 

Maybe you are staying in a house that may have some serious defects. You did everything right about the location, amenities, neighbors, etc. but it is possible that you may be missing to check the key locations of the house or plot. Before you get in to drive for searching a new home, do a little bit of research on internal as well as external placements.

Vastu defects (Vaastu dosha) in the home or office is one of the major factors which can negatively affect the resale value of the property.  Hence people prefer to buy a property that has a strong Vastu foundation and minimum Vastu deficiencies. People in real estate know-how difficult to sell residential or business property having serious Vastu defects.

With the Vastu corrections, you can minimize the turbulence and other conditions distracting your life path.

Why Vastu Remedies are recommended?

In modern living, where the environment at the macro level is highly influenced by many factors beyond our control, micro-level energy correction done with empowered remedies can effectively bring in and retain health, wealth, harmony, and happiness in life.
Mankind, throughout history, has created rich, culturally specific symbols with meaning. These symbols impact our subconscious mind which makes up about 95% of our mind frame. When these symbols are of specific geometric shape, size, colours, and meaning, it results in the transforming of energy- the vital force that governs the entire universe.

Paintings and artwork for Vastu corrections?


We all love painting. Painting includes all sorts of creative impressions. People’s interest in art or painting can be said to be as old as the history of mankind. The Discovery of cave art shows clearly that the love for art has passed from generation to generation. The real purpose of painting has been to communicate a message. During ancient times, art was used to express ideas that were not acceptable in society. Many messages are conveyed through colors, symbols, artwork, and also by way of quotes in painting.  Many people do not realize how much of a role art plays in our lives.

Why do we use crystals in Vastu?

Crystal is a tool for communication, between humans and the earth. It connects our place elements with the earth’s energies. Crystal stimulates the atmosphere and energy flow, making your space more enjoyable. One of the main functions of a crystal is to cleanse and transmute negative energies. When you use a crystal for Vastu i.e. your space healing (Vastu corrections), the crystal’s vibration tunes in to the malfunctioning emissions of the affected area and gently corrects them, making you feel healthier and re-energized.
