Diwali, one of the most celebrated festivals in India is associated with prosperity, wealth and happiness. It brings with it, endless festivities, reunions, entertainment and for most of us, a promise of a happier life. Each one of us hopes for Goddess Lakshmi to bless us with abundance and fulfill our wishes.

From the time immemorial, we have been following the ritual of cleaning the house and doing away with anything that we don’t need or use. A lot of us even go to the extent of renovating or getting the house re-painted just before Diwali so that we are forced to clean the house inside out. These rituals and practices have been trailing down from one generation to next and most often than not, we follow it because it is a tradition that has already been set and not really knowing much about it.

Each direction and every corner of our house is connected to one aspect of our lives. If North West stands for helpful people, East stands for good health, so on and so forth and if any area of the house is left dirty or messy it affects that aspect of your life.

In the recent times, micro family is the trend and so many times both couples working, they often overlook the cleaning part due to lack of time.

It is however very auspicious to clean every corner and every cupboard and shelf in the house as per Vastu and Feng Shui. By doing so we are clearing the clutter out of our lives. By clearing and de-cluttering  North area of the house, we ensure more career opportunities to enter our lives. This month specially, the career luck is residing in this sector. Hence it is of utmost importance that this space be cleaned and cleared of all things unneeded and unused and to make it as light as possible so that more prosperity enters your house.

We all conduct pooja ceremony to seek blessings of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi. While praying on this Diwali, please ensure that the idols are placed in such a way that you are facing North East while praying. North East denotes meditation and calm mind, hence looking in this direction while praying, you will ensure that only pure thoughts are put out as wishes to the Lord and the Goddess.

Another thing to note is that this month prosperity luck pays this sector a visit, bringing good news, many happy occasions and reasons for celebration for those who stay in the North East area or whose main entrances are located in this sector.  Hence, to pray to the Goddess of wealth looking at this direction will bring auspicious energies into your house. If you have a gold idol, placing the same in the North East will bring more prosperity luck.

Swastik, another symbol associated with our pooja is a very auspicious symbol to display outside our house on both sides of the door at a height of 2/3rd from the floor. This will protect your house and will ensure that only positive energies enter your house. Please do not place an idol of Lord Ganesha outside, because by doing so you are giving the Lord a status of a guard. His place is in the temple of your house, not outside.  Have a happy and prosperous Diwali. Say no to crackers. Smoke and noise pollution only spread negative energies around us.
