Tips How to Enjoy Harmonious Relations Following Ancient Indian Philosophy Vastu
According to ancient Indian philosophy Vastu (this is the doctrine of the organization of space in harmony with the energy of the sun and other planets), your house will contribute to your happy family life, if properly arranged.
- When choosing an apartment, pay attention to its overall shape. It is desirable that the housing was a regular rectangular or square shape, where all four directions of the world would be present. Then the energy in the room will move according to natural laws and each sector can be harmonized.
- According to Vastu theory, the north-west sector is responsible for relations, the west is responsible for ordering the house and gaining knowledge, the southwest for implementing plans and protection from troubles, the south for vitality and efficiency, the southeast for the feminine and beauty, the east for health, the northeast for children, luck and prosperity, the north for money, business and intellect.
- The main sector in the house is the north-east. It is believed that through it the luck comes to you – sattva, that is, a living, creative energy. Therefore it is important that this part of the apartment or house is maximally open, not cluttered with furniture and that there is no toilet. It is ideal that there was a window or door. But the south and west side, on the contrary, it is better to close, so you block the influence of the destructive energy (you can, for example, put in this part the focus – it will absorb negative energy).
- Harmonize the north-western sector, which is responsible for relations. The north-west is under the control of God Vayu, the lord of the winds. Therefore, in the northwest sector, high trees, heavy objects and pieces of furniture are not recommended. A good northwest Vastu greatly improves relations, hospitality, and harmony at the social level of a person’s realization. The north-western sector is most favorable for the reception and accommodation of guests. Colors of the north-west – milky white, pearl, silver.
- The relationship between husband and wife is the interaction of male and female energy. That is why for conjugal relationships it is very important to balance the male and female energies in the house.
- Conduct harmonization in the marital bedroom, in particular, pay attention to its location in the house. The worst location for a married couple in the southeast sector. The best is south-west.
- A kitchen is a sacred place, controlled by the elements of fire. For her, the ideal place is in the southeast. Never leave unwashed dishes, do not put pets into the kitchen and take out garbage at night (but not later than eight o’clock in the evening). According to Vastu, it is better to cook yourself, but you cannot do it in a bad mood.
Vastu suggests that the house is a living being, therefore it is necessary to take care of it as a member of the family. So one can raise the level of prana – the life energy and gain additional potential for improving karma. And yes, the main duty to arrange to the house is on the woman. Men are ascetic by nature and do not have much power over the home. But the woman is responsible for the creation of the cozy house.
Top-8 Secrets of Happy Marriage
The beginning of a life together is a serious step for each couple. This period can be compared to an adventure that opens new impressions and emotions in any person, and also gives various reasons for reflection. Despite all the positivity of this process, many couples experience serious difficulties. This is not surprising, because the habitual way of life has to be changed. Is there a secret of successful relationships? Who can guarantee that everything will be fine after you started living together and you will be happy together? Let’s try to understand these issues and share some secrets that will help make your relationship successful and stronger.
Be realistic about your expectations regarding marriage
Romanticism is wonderful, and seeing the best in your spouse is the right way to keep love and intimacy. However, you are going to be together for many years, so you need to be able to turn a blind eye to some of the imperfections of the spouse. In the first impulses of passion, the object of our romantic attention may seem to be devoid of shortcomings, but later we find hidden weaknesses. At this point in order to continue the marriage, we need to look further and deeper, see what is “behind” the flaws and weaknesses of the partner, after all, no one is perfect. The expectations that everything will be easy and that everything will always be “perfect” lead only to disappointment. Idealize your spouse as soon as you can, but remember that he / she is only a person.
“Forgive” should not be the most difficult word to pronounce
Surveys of married people show that people who are happy in a marriage are twice as likely to be willing to apologize to their partner than divorced or single. Polls also show that the probability of asking for forgiveness is 25% higher in happy couples, even when one of the spouses feels that it is only partially to blame. The more difficult it is for the divorced and lonely people to apologize or make a conciliatory gesture, the more chances they have to remain alone.
Love and passion can join the couple, but compromise and respect support this unity. Learn to say “I’m sorry”.

There are 4 factors that destroy relationships. They are called “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.” Here they are:
The manner of dealing, grimaces of displeasure, curses, and insults – in general, you show by your behavior that the partner disgusts you – this is “contempt”. If all this is regularly repeated in the initial phase of disagreements, then until the end of the relationship there are only a few days left. Women who look contemptuously at the time when their husband says something is six times more likely to divorce in two years;
“Well, what have you done to me? Do not look at me like that! What do you want from me?!” “But I just asked if you want some tea!” Another important predictor of a possible collapse of relations is “exceeding the limits of necessary defense.” If someone starts yelling, as soon as the partner offers something to discuss if it seems to him that he is threatened or attacked by him, and if this happens regularly – in a crisis relationship. Defensive position blocks communication and separates spouses;
Do not criticize, but be sure to say compliments
Criticizing each other’s spouses risk so damaging their relationship that it will be impossible to “repair” them later … This does not mean that you cannot express your displeasure if your spouse grieves you, but criticism is much more destructive than making claims.
When you criticize, then the attack goes to the person as a whole (even if you did not want this). Discontent is directed only at a single act and does not affect the person’s personality.
Some people believe that constantly pointing out the shortcomings of a partner, they “make him better”. But even with good intentions, the consequences will not be good. If you criticize your spouse in public, it is humiliating (for both), but when you say something nice about him or her in the company, it will be helpful.
People in a happy marriage feel that they are appreciated, loved and respected. Remind your spouse about his talents, strengths, and what you particularly like about them. No one likes to feel under the constant fire of criticism.
Self-abolition or “opposition”
Emotional separation of one of the spouses when the partner expresses his claims – another predictor of an early break in relations. Women are more critical, men are more prone to self-elimination. Men by nature are not able to cope with strong emotional stress, women have a clear advantage. Therefore, men instinctively try to avoid quarrels and strong irritation and erect protective walls around themselves.
Be careful while discussing some topics in marriage
Young spouses often want to “dig deeper”, learn “all secrets”, be completely open to each other and “discuss everything”. But the study of the experience of elderly couples who have been happy in marriage for decades shows that these couples often try to ignore negative emotions. These people also prefer not to pay much attention to their feelings about the relationship, unless they consider something absolutely necessary. This “threshold” here is much higher than in young couples. Agree with the claim and know what it is worth keeping away – one of the key skills in the relationship.
Work on problems together
Another key factor that helps to maintain relations in case of disagreement is the habit of changing the topic when the discussion “gets off course.” This rapid “switching” reduces the number of negative emotions. Disagreements should be a “one-time special offer,” and not a long series. BTW, here is a good information about analysing bad habits using the pythagoras square.
Laugh together more often
Regular memories of romantic times in the past and their mention in conversations (” Remember how we had fun …”) – this is a very powerful way to maintain a spiritual connection. But regularly laughing together is an even more powerful way. According to recent studies, couples who laugh together and regularly recall funny cases tend to be much more satisfied with their relationship. Create a “pantry for fun” and often go there. Without fun, the marriage withers like a flower without water.
Follow the rule: 5 “good things” on one “bad”
For a stable marriage, you need five “good” for one “bad”. “Good” – it can be a warm embrace, and a day, pleasantly spent together, and discussion of an interesting film, in general, something positive. “Bad” is a quarrel, a disagreement or a disappointment. So make an effort to comply with rule 5/1.
Learn more about the tastes of your spouse
The better you know the spouse’s tastes, his / her aspirations, who they like and do not like from colleagues at work and so on, the higher the quality of your “love union”. Knowing the details of the partner’s external and internal life (while allowing some personal space) strengthens your connection.
Living in a happy marriage is the best way to ensure the satisfaction of your life for each of you. Follow these tips and you will see how your married life is becoming the one you have always dreamt about.
