Vastu Remedies

An introduction to Vastu Doshas will involve the study of the five elements of life- earth, water, sky, air, and fire. These elements constitute our environment in the same ratio as it is present in our body. We need all these elements in proper proportion. If there is an increase or decrease in any of them then the trouble may begin. 

How elements are connected to Panchabhootas?

Panchambhootas determines the flow of these elements. When any part of Panchambhootas are in such  a position that it obstructs the flow of the elements of nature, then there will be a change in proportion of the energy flow which will hence lead to emotional disbalance and therefore, leading to some sort of Vastu doshas, which could not be corrected unless the source of the ill effect is detected and put in proper place. Suppose, if the northeast direction of the house is unclean and full of clutter, then it will invite bad luck and failure. Therefore, losses in terms of finance and health will lead to fear. This is called Vastu dosha because its origins are into Vastu defects and can be fixed only with Vastu remedies.
