Mirrors are a simple but very powerful tool in Vaastu. They have the capacity to rectify Vaastu defects. At the same time, mirrors can bring about Vaastu defect if placed wrongly! Lot of misfortunes, poverty and unhappiness is created due to the wrong use of mirrors.

POWER OF MIRRORS: Mirrors are considered to be a powerful tool because they can attract and repel positive energy but they also suck up all the negative energies. So a mirror, depending upon how and where it is used, can help in:

1. Doubling up the prosperity: If a mirror is placed in front of a cash locker then it represents doubling up of cash. This attracts positive energy and ensures that the financial condition becomes better.

2. Reflecting all the positive energies away: If a mirror is placed in front of the main door or entrance of a home then it will reflect away all the positive energies that is entering the house. So unless advised by an expert to reflect negative energy, a mirror should not be used in front of the main door.

3. Sucking up all the negative energies: If a concave mirror is placed in front of something negative, then it will suck up all the negative energy emanating from that thing i.e. a staircase or lift in front of the main door.

June/July are the months of summer holidays for students. They relax from rigorous school/college routine and go for vacations or visit the houses of relatives, etc. But many of them also take extra coaching classes and other vocational or extra-curricular courses during this period. It is important for the students not to lose touch with books under any circumstances.

It has become a custom for the school authorities to give lot of homework and assignments during the vacations.This takes lot of time and the students have to be in touch with studies to complete the same. There are some students who procrastinate and keepthe homework pending till the eleventh hour! If the children are made to follow the Vaastu rules, their task becomes easier without much effort.

1. Keep the study room neat and clean. Remove old books, redundant notes, stationery, etc.

2. The study table should not be round or oval. It should be square or rectangular. There should not be any cut in the table.

3. The East is the direction of spiritual and intellectual energy. So face the East while studying. Positive energy also comes from the north. This direction is also good for studies.

4.There should be a solid support behind the back like a wall. A door or window behind the back will break the concentration of the student.

5. The study table should not be touching the wall. There should be a substantial gap between the table and the wall. An immediate wall in front blocks the flow of energy.
