Five ways to improve wealth through Vastu are as follows:
- Place the cash box or your money wallet in the north direction
Vastu says that the cash box in which you keep your valuables is supposed to be kept in the North direction as The North direction is considered and believed to be the Lord Kuber’s direction (the God of wealth and riches). It is believed that it will bring you good luck and double your wealth though the cash box should be kept in the north direction. It is believed that Devi Lakshmi (Goddess of Wealth) travels from the South and settles in the North.
- Keep a green plant or a water resource right beside you
Greenery brings positive energy and calms one’s mood. Seeing a plant grow subtly leads to growth in money and business outcomes. Vastu says, water is wealth and thus it is suggested to keep clear and clean water near your seating.
- Don’t place any valuables near the edges of the walls
Don’t keep your money near the edges of the walls, especially not the northeast, southeast or southwest corner. North is safe and avoids the South zones completely because it will lead to bad luck and you will suffer rapid draining of wealth.
- Your main doors should be free of repair
Vastu says the door of your house is one of the main features you can strengthen. This is the space where positive energy, wealth and prosperity attract and welcomes and which is why your door should be attractively built and decorated. There shouldn’t be cracks or faults in the main door and check that the locks function smoothly. Also, place plants, wind chimes and a legible signboard (nameplate) at the entrance to your house.
- Any kind of water leakage must be immediately addressed
Vastu Shastra says water leakages in the kitchen, bathroom and even outdoor garden area signify money leaking and financial loss. This is to be taken care of, especially during monsoon.
