We celebrate November 14, the birthday of our first prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, as Children’s Day. So for the benefit of the children on this special occasion, let us energise good fortune for them. Parents who are keen on energising education luck for their children can try these Feng Shui methods.
The best position for study is in the north-eastern part of the house and also in the room. It governs the expansion of knowledge, one’s ability to concentrate and to retain information.
Green and blue have a relaxing effect, while the light shade of yellow can stimulate their minds.
If you are having difficulty studying, check if the wisdom area is cluttered. Clean it out, perhaps by adding a bookcase (to stack books). Brighten up the area by putting up a colourful picture for impact. This way the study habit will improve.
Place artworks, trophies, certificates in the Fame Area as it is important for parents to let their child know that they are proud of his or her achievements.
Keep a globe in the Knowledge Area for healthy social and academic development and supporting his or her school achievements.
Family photo of parents and grandparents make children feel secure.
Children are often sensitive to mirrors. If your kids are not sleeping well, make sure you cover or remove mirrors from their bedroom.
When children are sharing a bedroom, give each child a distinct place to call his or her own, such as a table, closet or shelf. This keeps each child’s chi individually defined. This will help them learn how to respect each other’s space.
The main source of light on the study table should be placed opposite one’s writing hand. This avoids shadow on the writing surface.
Place a bamboo or money plant in the child’s room. This will enhance the relationship between the parent and child.
Clutter is a particularly important issue for children’s bedroom. Thus, it’s important that the clutter is not stuffed under the bed, where it can trap the free flow of chi. Raman Datta is a vaastu consultant Tel: 09810155835
