It is a believed that Goddess Lakshmi only enters a clean house. Throw the useless old things in your home as they obstruct the positive energy from entering in. Dispose of all those old magazines, clothes, broken furniture, crockery or children’s toys that are never going to be used. Make your home neat and clean this Diwali. It will pave the way for prosperity and dissipate stagnant energy too. Diwali is the time to de-clutter.
Clean It Up:
Clean the entire house, including those neglected corners, which are seldom attended to. If possible energize your apartment or building by either whitewashing or applying a fresh coat of paint, as the final step towards giving your home a brand new look.
Spray Salt Water:
Mix rock sea salt with water and spray this saline solution at all corners of the house. According to Vastu Shastra, salt has a property to absorb all evil energies within the house. Add a pinch of energy salt or ‘Sendha Namak’ while mopping the floor to ward off negativity. Place rock salt (filled in glass bowl) in all the four corners of your home or office.
The reason why ‘light’ is an important feature of Diwali is that it is supposed to ward off evil spirits, bring in prosperity and energize the surroundings.
