|Isn't that the Hindu religion equivalent of feng shui?|
|I found this online - |
"Vastu, the PhD of feng Shui is the Vedic science of layout, planning and design of buildings and spaces to manage the flow of energy."
|That's what it sounds like, but I guess I'll find out for sure when I go....|
|OK, so I went. Some of it sounds sensible, some of it sounds crazy. The practice is very old, but whether it is effective, I struggle with that one... |
This is not really feng shui...or it's more like feng shui on steroids...this claims to be "scientific" though I'm not sure what the proof is...but theoretically our bodies are made of water and are impacted by electro-magnetic fields, so creating a home or office that's properly aligned with these forces are supposed to bring better health and more success.
It's all about energy flows through the house based on how the house is shaped and how it is positioned relative to magnetic north. There are ways to "rectify" the house if it is built not according to vastu principles by the use of stones and crystals and such, buried in the ground.
She claims to have had a lot of positive feedback, even from skeptics when it comes to vastu design, but I'm clearly in the skeptic camp.
We definitely took energy flows into consideration when we built our house...the energy flows that cost $$$ like heating and cooling...but not the prana or the chi or whatever....
She suggested I sleep with my head in the other direction to see if I sleep any better...I guess it couldn't hurt to try that one....
