These are some Vastu Shastra and Feng Shui Tips. Both these ancient sciences seem to be related to each other as certain common factors are involved. These tips are mostly negative ones on what not to do; so do not take them very seriously as there are many other factors which affect an individual or a place; Feng Shui and Vastu Shastra are just a couple of these factors.
The south-west direction is the direction of the Prithvi Tatva; the Earth Element. This direction assumes importance in the marriage and marriage related aspirations of an individual as per the Indian science of Vastu Shastra. Vastu Shastra recommends that Green Trees should never be kept in this direction because this may hinder marriage prospects and Cause problems in a marriage. According to the Tatva Vinashak Chakra, wood is the element which destroys the Prithvi Tatva and because Green Trees are connected with the Wood Element ; they disrupt the harmonious flow of energy from this direction.
The southern direction is the direction of the Jal Tatva; the Water Element. Mud destroys and disrupts the Jal Tatva. Hence clay, mud, spatik or glass pots and utensils should not be kept in this direction as they are likely to disrupt the flow of this Tatva and affect the career of an individual.
Feng Shui compares water with money. If there is an unnecessary flow and wastage of water in your home due to broken and leaking taps; then such taps have to be repaired or replaced. Feng Shui says that this will stop your money from flowing like water.
Broken or Damaged Clocks should never be hung on a wall; even if you are emotionally attached to them or have invested in them. Keep a Clock in the home; whose sound in sweet and pleasant to the ears. However the Clock should never be hung over the door or in its path.
The Chinese people attach great importance to the belief that using damaged or broken utensils is harmful to the flow of Positive Health Energy and also adverse to peace and flow of money in the house.
