Peace is a much desired attainment in life often not found by many but desired by all. After all your home is the place to feel at home. So naturally, if the décor aligns the energies in a way that makes one to feel at home, peace will be easier to attain.
The Door Vastu for peace
The images of Gods and Goddesses that makes you feel more energetic and assured can be put on the main door of the house or your home. Images of Lord Shiva or Goddess Lakshmi can be an example or the idols can be carved or fixed on the main door itself. You can also engrave or fix auspicious symbols on the door to welcome peace and prosperity.
Ideas of Colour
In case of choosing colours the Vastu experts suggest not to paint with colours like blue and black and avoid such colours as much as possible. For choosing colours on the wall or the cabinets, colours like red, yellow or orange can be used or in mixed ratios.
Direction of head while sleeping
The Vastu expert argues that peace depends a lot on the direction one sleeps. The Vastu exponent points out to sleep with head towards the South or the East. Direction of the head towards the North or the West is asked to be avoided while sleeping. The head of the families and the elders of the families with responsibility of the family should lie down with head directed towards Southwest. The maiden girls of the family are advised to sleep with their heads in the Northwesterly direction. The Vastu exponent does not advise them to sleep keeping the head in the Southwesterly direction.
