So, if you are a homeowner who wants to keep negative forces at bay and welcome positive energies to your home, here are the seven useful tips you can follow:


1. The Main Door

  • The main door should be the largest and the widest in your house, according to Vastu Shastra. If required, you can place a ‘Swastik’ symbol cut-out on the door for good luck.

  • Cracked or aged doors are better to be replaced immediately.

  • Do not place dustbin or garbage bins at the main entrance as they tend to attract negative energy.

  • It is also believed that if you place a doormat at the main entrance, it absorbs the negative energy and helps prevent it from affecting the peace in the household.

Wind chimes
