Keep footwear at the right place, ward off negativity

Vastu says that footwear should be stored on a rack some distance away from the main door.

Often, we don’t take notice of some minor matters in our house, which might have a great influence on our fate. In fact, such an ignorance could drain away the positive energy from our living spaces. One instance is the position of the shoe rack.

In the past, people used to enter the house only after washing their feet. Moreover, they also took care to clean the footwear and keep it at a proper place.

However, these days, several pairs of footwear can be seen heaped near the front door of houses. Most people use more than one pair of footwear and all of them are stored near the entrance.

According to the ancient astrological branch of ‘vastu’, the main entrance is the place through which the house breathes and so keeping footwear with dirt near this area is a bad tendency and could lead to adverse effects.

Vastu says that footwear should be stored on a rack some distance away from the main door. The footwear has to be kept properly facing the house.

Wearing footwear inside the house is not recommended either. Some people keep expensive shoes and other footwear inside their house. It is not proper to place them under the staircase, below the cot or anywhere in the bedroom. In other words, footwear creates negative energy and extreme caution has to be exercised while dealing with it at home.
