The Sanskrit word vastu means a dwelling or house with a corresponding plot of land. The vrddhi, vāstu, takes the meaning of “the site or foundation of a house, site, ground, building or dwelling-place, habitation, homestead, house”. The underlying root is vas “to dwell, live, stay, reside”. The term shastra may loosely be translated as “doctrine, teaching”.Vastu-Sastras (literally, science of dwelling) are ancient Sanskrit manuals of architecture. These contain Vastu-Vidya (literally, knowledge of dwelling).
Vastu is an age old practise of following certain rules to develop and maintain buildings that promises to harness the natural positive energies surrounding us. This age old practice of Indian civilization delivers wonderful results and makes the life of its practitioners successful, prosperous and peaceful.The best time to start paying attention to Vastu would be when you are constructing your house. Vastu specifies certain rules about constructing the building which can be naturally implemented only at the time of construction. Vastu is a huge subject dealing with all the nooks and crannies of harnessing positive energy inside the building and in our lives.
As per vastu shastra, different directions belong to different Gods that supervise respective sectors of the house. For example, God supervises Eshan or North-East direction and hence is best suitable for prayer room; Agni (Fire element) supervises South-East direction and hence is best suitable for Kitchen. This means that if various sections and activities related to each section of a house, office, shop etc. stick to principles of vastu shastra then, we start to draw the power of nature effortlessly and achieving goals is easy, spontaneous and effortless.
Many rules of vastu shastra are simple common sense as they relate to ventilation, amount and quality of sunlight a building receives etc. But some principles of vastu shastra relate to energy field of earth and subtle energy fields in natural and constructed environments. Also, people living/working in such buildings have appreciated and verified the effects of these fields.
Vastu Shastra are the textual part of Vastu Vidya, the latter being the broader knowledge about architecture and design theories from ancient India. Vastu Vidya knowledge is a collection of ideas and concepts, with or without the support of layout diagrams, that are not rigid. Rather, these ideas and concepts are models for the organization of space and form within a building or collection of buildings, based on their functions in relation to each other, their usage and to the overall fabric of the Vastu.Ancient Vastu Shastra principles include those for the design of Mandir (Hindu temples),and the principles for the design and layout of houses, towns, cities, gardens, roads, water works, shops and other public areas.

Reiki is generally means a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist/Healer can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Reiki is basically an energy source that used to heal person.
What is Reiki Energy and how does it heal?
The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words – Rei and Ki. When translating Japanese into English we must keep in mind that an exact translation is difficult and somewhere almost impossible to translate. The Japanese language has many levels of meaning. Therefore the context the word is being used in must be kept in mind when attempting to communicate its essence. Because these words are used in a spiritual healing context, a Japanese/English dictionary does not provide the depth of meaning we seek, as its definitions are based on common everyday Japanese. As an example, Rei is often defined as ghost and Ki as vapor and while these words vaguely point in the direction of meaning we seek, they fall far short of the understanding that is needed.
Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing is Reiki.
When seeking a definition from a more spiritual context, we find that Rei can be defined as the Higher Intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the universe. Rei is a subtle wisdom that permeates everything, both animate and inanimate. This subtle wisdom guides the evolution of all creation ranging from the unfolding of galaxies to the development of life. On a human level, it is available to help us in times of need and to act as a source of guidance in our lives. Because of its infinite nature, it is all knowing. Rei is also called God and has many other names depending on the culture that has named it.
Ki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. Ki is flowing in everything that is alive including plants, animals and humans. When a person’s Ki is high, they will feel strong, confident, and ready to enjoy life and take on it’s challenges. When it is low, they will feel weak and are more likely to get sick. We receive Ki from the air we breath, from food, sunshine, and from sleep. It is also possible to increase our Ki by using breathing exercises and meditation. When a person dies, their Ki leaves the physical body. Ki is also the Chi of China, the prana of India, the Ti or Ki of the Hawaiians, and has also been called odic force, orgone, bioplasma and life force.
With the above information in mind, Reiki can be defined as a non-physical healing energy made up of life force energy that is guided by the Higher Intelligence, or spiritually guided life force energy. This is a functional definition as it closely parallels the experience of those who practice Reiki in that Reiki energy seems to have an intelligence of its own flowing where it is needed in the client and creating the healing conditions necessary for the individuals needs. It cannot be guided by the mind, therefore it is not limited by the experience or ability of the practitioner. Nether can it be misused as it always creates a healing effect. ( It must be kept in mind that Reiki is not the same as simple life force energy as life force energy by itself can be influenced by the mind and because of this, can create benefit as well as cause problems including ill health.)
We must understand that the mind exists not only in the brain, but also through-out the body. The nervous system extends to every organ and tissue in the human body and so the mind exists here also. It is also known that the mind even extends outside the body in a subtle energy field 2 to 3 feet thick called the aura(outer aura). Because of this, it is more appropriate to call our mind a mind/body as the mind and body are so closely linked with each other.Therefore, our negative thoughts are not just in the brain, but also collect in various locations through-out the body and in the aura also. The places where negative thoughts and feelings collect is where Ki is restricted in its flow and effects. The physical organs that exist at these locations are restricted in their functioning. If the negative thoughts and feelings are not eliminated quickly, illness results in human body.The negative thoughts and feelings that are lodged in the unconscious mind/body are the greatest problem as we are not aware of them and therefore, are we are greatly hampered in changing or eliminating them by any means.
The great value of Reiki is that because it is guided by the Higher Intelligence, it knows exactly where to go and how to respond to restrictions in the flow of Ki and blocked the negative energy. It can work directly in the unconscious parts of the mind/body which contain negative Ki-inhibiting thoughts and feelings and eliminate them by Reiki. As Reiki flows through a sick or unhealthy area, it breaks up and washes away any negative thoughts or feelings lodged in the unconscious mind/body thus allowing a normal healthy flow of Ki to resume healthy mind and body. As this happens, the unhealthy physical organs and tissues become properly nourished with Ki and begin functioning in a balanced healthy way thus replacing illness with health.This non-invasive, completely benign healing technique is becoming more and more popular in nation. As western medicine continues to explore alternative methods of healing, Reiki is destined to play an important role as an accepted and valued healing practice.
Reiki is a healing procedures which is recommendation by the doctor nowadays for eliminating the negative energy with positive energy.
The Om symbol is said to represent the one-ness of all creation, including the heavens, earth and underworld. Others say it is the representation of the three Hindu gods, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
Om is considered one of the most powerful mantras, and the ritual of chanting Om has been done for thousands of years.
When you chant Om, the vibration from that sound correlates to the original vibrations that were sounded in the universe when the world was created. The sound of Om is often called Pranava, or that which runs through breath (Prana) and sustains life. Om is also a representation of the four states of the Supreme Being.
5 Facts You May Not Know About ‘OM’
- The sound of OM encompasses all words, all sounds in human language.
- In Sanskrit, the sound “O” is a diphthong spelled “AU”. The difference between OM and AUM is simply one of transliteration.
- AUM represents the 3 Fold Division of Time. A – is the waking state U – is the dream state M – is the state of deep sleep.
- ,The visual symbol represents the meaning of AUM
- The physical form of Lord Ganesha is said to be that of OM.
A new study has proved that excessive uses of Facebook may cause depression, and the more someone uses it, the more depressed he or she becomes. Social networks are a way to share, and the experience of successful sharing comes with a psychological and physiological rush that is often self-reinforcing.
Facebook could even cause problems in relationships, by increasing feelings of jealousy. Facebook had the opposite effect, lowering their feelings of connection and increasing their sense of loneliness. When the subjects were actively engaged with Facebook, their physiological response measured a significant uptick in happiness. When they were passively browsing, however, the positive effect disappeared.
Whenever we have downtime, the Internet is an enticing, quick solution that immediately fills the gap. We get bored, look at Facebook or Twitter, and become more bored. Getting rid of Facebook wouldn’t change the fact that our attention is, more and more frequently, forgetting the path to proper, fulfilling engagement. And in that sense, Facebook isn’t the problem. It’s the symptom.
A study led via researchers at Nanyang Technological University, Bradley University and the University of Missouri Columbia found that heavy Facebook (FB, Tech30) users can experience envy — which can A new study has proved that excessive uses of Facebook may cause depression, and the more someone uses it, the more depressed he or she becomes.
The researchers studied 736 school students and found that if one quietly stalks their friends on Facebook and afterward understand that their life doesn’t measure up to others, they begin to feel bad about themselves.
“If Facebook is used to see how well an acquaintance is doing financially or how glad an old friend is in his relationship — things that cause envy among users — use of the site can lead feelings of depressions,” said Margaret Duffy, professor at the University Of Missouri School Of Journalism.
Facebook users usually share every little thing about their lives — the dinner they had out last night, vacation at exotic locations, any grant/ felicitation they got, their children’s achievements and so on.
The researchers studied 736 school students and found that if one quietly stalks their friends on Facebook and afterward understand that their life doesn’t measure up to others, they begin to feel bad about themselves.
The people who don’t have similar things to share may feel envious or pitiful for not having similar privileges in life, researchers said.
“C” Students from others is that they understand the most important lessons in life aren’t learned in the classroom. This kind of knowledge has to be acquired the “hard way” – often through failure. There are countless of examples of brilliant people who didn’t do well in school. They are:
The world doesn’t need obedient and compliant factory workers anymore. The world needs artists, creative, hackers, and innovators.
- They understand what they want earlier than others
“C” students don’t spend much time on the unnecessary classes we all have to.
They stop taking the required classes and focus on vocation-related subjects that can help them during their work.
2. They get first-hand experience.
Most “C” students start working earlier than their peers, which lowers their marks as they have to skip classes to make a living. At the same time, they get priceless experience every “A+” graduate is missing.
3 They build networks.
They can be mostly frank to everyone so they can build good relationship with other. C students read tons of useful literature and communicate with dozens people every day. In real life, knowing powerful people as well as the ability to communicate can make a difference in your career.
4. They know how to enjoy life.
They do lots of enjoy in college, party, school everywhere. They take lots of enjoy by gathering with everybody. They know how to enjoy the life happily. Stressful, negative people, no matter how intelligent they are won’t be in the top list of candidates.
5.They find the simplest solutions.
Billionaire computer specialist Bill Gates is one of the many successful people who cannot show off with their college marks. Nevertheless, he managed to get to the top by building Microsoft, one of the giant IT corporations. They don’t think too much and they can easily find every solution without pressurizing any of them.
6.They pursue their dreams.
Much of success comes from loving what you do. When you enter college you are very young and might not understand what you actually need. The great example is all-known fun-lover Richard Branson; he dropped our school at the age of 15, now he is managing a giant air company “Virgin.”
7. They understand the meaning of struggle.
“C” students become more successful because they know what it means to struggle, starting with passing an exam and ending with finding money to start their own business. At the end of the day, grades are just numbers. True achievement is to become someone in a real world.
8. They have their own definition of success
C students know that security can only really be experienced internally. They know who they are. No external standard of success will ever compare to their own self-awareness and acceptance — they’ve defined success for themselves.
NASA was started in 1958 as a part of the United States government. NASA is in charge of U.S. science and technology that has to do with airplanes or space. NASA does a lot of different things. NASA works to make air travel faster and safer.
NASA does a lot of different things. NASA makes satellites. The satellites help scientists learn more about Earth. NASA sends probes out into space. NASA scientists study things in the solar system, and even farther away.
A new program will send humans to explore asteroids, Mars and beyond. People at NASA work on ways to make air travel better for everyone on Earth, too.
If movies about space have taught us anything, it’s that no one can hear you scream. If you get lost in space, nobody’s going to find you. Unless you’re a spacecraft with a direct link to NASA. Then, there is hope for you yet.
STEREO-B, from the Solar and Terrestrial Relations Observatory mission, went missing on October 1, 2014 after losing contact with the team back on Earth. However, on Sunday night, scientists were able to reestablish contact, after 22 months of searching, when the Deep Space Network (NASA’s tool for tracking space missions) was able to lock on to the signal.
In October 2006, STEREO-B and its partner STEREO-A embarked on a two-year-long mission to provide measurements of the sun’s flow of energy to Earth. One was slightly inside Earth’s orbit, and one was outside, allowing scientists to measure energy from multiple angles and eventually, the far side of the sun for the first time.
However, the team ran into a problem. One of the spacecraft was about to drift to the opposite side of the sun from Earth, so there was going to be a three-month period during which communication would be impossible. Since the spacecraft were only designed to be in space for two years, this development was overlooked at the time of the launch.
“The sun emits strongly in nearly every wavelength, making it the biggest source of noise in the sky,” said Dan Ossing, mission operations manager for the STEREO mission.“Most deep space missions only have to deal with sun interference for a day or so, but for each of the STEREO spacecraft, this period lasted nearly four months.”
Because the spacecraft was designed to reset after 72 hours without contact, the team decided to test it to make sure it could reestablish a signal with Earth durimg this reset period. The scientists figured it would turn itself back on.
The team received a weak signal after the first reset, and that was the last time they heard from STEREO-B. Until this week, when the Deep Space Network established a link with STEREO-B’s signal.
In a report from December 2015, scientists hypothesized that the tests went awry because the sensor that tells the spacecraft how fast it’s rotating failed, sending it spinning out of control. Meanwhile, the spacecraft’s battery was powered by solar panels, which weren’t able to get energy to power it up.
Since communications were lost, scientists have been using the network to check for STEREO-B, spacing out three three-hour blocks each week to search for it. This was a tough task, considering scientists had no idea where the spacecraft was.
But the newly located STEREO-B isn’t out of danger just yet. The STEREO team will plan further recovery processes to ensure that the spacecraft is working properly. The team has already spent several hours testing its vitals before powering it down to save battery.
It’s a process that might take years. In 2019, the team will be able to use Hubble to see it and test its rate of spin.
So I guess STEREO-B got its happily ever after, at least for now. It’s still sad to think about it floating in space, spinning out of control, hoping its friends back on Earth will find it. Although that could just be us (definitely us).

People are often reluctant to be in the company of others, when they are depressed .Somehow a lack of interest is also the reason behind this. A fear of being rejected by others, which increases the reluctance to engage socially is also a vital characteristics.
2. Loss Of Interest
No longer interest in activities that used to bring such joy and fulfillment to the person is a big one. This is painful for both the individual and those who care for them. The afflicted person can even lose interest in their spouse or children, often leading to bigger problems.
3. Substance Abuse
It is impossible at times for navigating the ups and downs of life for depressed person. They often chooses the use of alcohol or drugs to escape from this trap. This is because the person is seeking to numb their pain or feel the happiness that they long for.However, this only works for a short while and as tolerance increases so does the likelihood of addiction.
4. Mood Swings
A depressed person can go from happy to crying to something else within a short span of time. No reaction to a sarcastic joke and many other hings and events that used to cause reaction. If someone you care about is demonstrating these sorts of changes, understand that it can be due to depression.However; normal changes in hormones can lead to mood swings as well so don’t judge too hastily.
5. Changes In Appetite
Changes in appetite also can be a depressed person not touching food on a plate or someone scarfing a gallon of ice cream until it’s gone. The former doesn’t have the willingness to eat, as they are too busy attending to their thoughts while the latter uses food as much-needed source of comfort. Either way, drastic changes in appetite is often a clear sign of depression.
A lethargic approach to many of one’s responsibilities is only natural for people lacking enthusiasm. People with depression constantly deal with the internal chatter of their minds, which is exhausting in itself. It is no wonder then why they have very little energy for anything else. Excessive states of tiredness could indicate the presence of depression.
You may think that a depressed person would have no issue with sleeping. As with many other depressive symptoms, however, sleep problems can vary widely. Some will sleep the majority of the day while others will skimp by on maybe a couple of hours, if that. A drastic change in sleep pattern is often one of the more obvious signs of depression.
If you are a great believer in luck, then take this in mind that searching for all the four-leafed clovers in the world,praying to all the shooting stars you see and wearing all the lucky charms you believe you have won’t matter if you don’t actively work towards making your life better.
So, this time here we have brought 6 practical habits you can adopt to change your luck:
1. Stay mindful
Being mindful indicates to stay alert for all the times and in all kind of situation. You need to be completely aware of every things that are going around you as well as inside you and this cannot be a one-time thing.You can’t keep switching from working on auto-pilot one minute to carefully deciding your actions in the very next. When you adopt a mindful mindset, you are more likely to embrace the opportunities around you, to take advantage of every situation, and to create your own luck.
2. Remain proactive
Remaining proactive is one of the vital and most common in luck people. They always search for new things to try, they apply to every opportunity they can find, and they go out to actually make things happen. This means that they just don’t wait around lying in their bed all day just waiting for some stroke of luck to land them a job or to get them that scholarship opportunity. These are the people who remain in control of their lives.
3. Grab all the opportunities
All the successful people around you are opportunists. They’re clever enough to recognize unique and sometimes concealed opportunities that come their way. Most people are rigid in their thoughts and actions and they tend to look out only for a set pattern of opportunities. They don’t look out beyond their original plans. They don’t step out of their comfort zones. And they are not open to new experiences.
The truth is that luck probably had very little to do with it. A lot of us are given opportunities to travel one time or another but we just don’t see this as an opportunity to expand our horizons, an opportunity to be that ‘lucky’ person. We come up with reasons saying we have too much work at the moment, or that the timing just isn’t right, or that we can’t just go without our friends or family.The list of reasons at that time was endless but you’ll come to realize a few years down the line that those reasons were merely excuses! Excuses that stopped you from taking advantage of an opportunity.
4. Develop insight
In our lifetime, we gain two kinds of knowledge. The first kind is explicit which is the knowledge we gain from going to educational institutions and reading all those books. This is basically the factual knowledge we have. The second kind is implicit knowledge which is something we gain through experiences and observations.
Both kinds of knowledge have their own unique significance. We can develop a strong insight by making intelligent use of a combination of both kinds of knowledge to make important decisions and choose a particular path in our life. Insightful people tend to have a higher social and emotional intelligence.They can read people well and understand unspoken issues. Lucky people are known to have a strong insight in life.
5. Be flexible
Our lives keep evolving. The situations, people and places we see today might not even exist tomorrow. In order to lead a successful and ‘lucky’ life, it is absolutely essential to accept and appreciate the constantly changing dynamics of life. If you are a person who can accept change, a person who can be flexible with their decisions, and a person who can take advantage of new situations instead of panicking over them, then you are already on the path to creating your own luck.
6. Practice optimism
It is always your decision to look at the glass as half full or half empty. And that’s the key difference between a person who considers himself lucky and a person who never can. Optimism helps you spot the silver lining in every given situation.
Therefore, if you look closely, it’s not really the lucky circumstances that you actually envy about a person. What amazes you is the way that person is always able to see the positivity and advantage from every situation they’re given.
It might be true that the only reason you’ve never felt very lucky is because you never seem to find positivity in anything.

Eating 8 to 10 peanuts daily will increase the immunity power as well as this will provide the energy to fight with mental pressure. The vitamin-e on it will increase the natural cells on the body. This also k!lls the cancer cores. This increase the B type cells on the body which develops the antibodies which helps to k!ll the harmful bacteria of the body. The vitamin-e on the peanuts will make the skin healthy as well as prevents wrinkles.
This contains Vitamin-c which helps to develop the blood cells which helps to fight with other disease. This will not allow the virus to enter inside the body. This increases the cholesterol and controls the blood pressure. The chemical compound on it makes the immunity power active.
Garlic makes the antioxidant that strengthen the immune system. This contains silicon that provides the power to fight with infection and bacteria of the body. This also prevents from cancer and alsor. This strengthen the immunity system of the body.
This is considered as super food. This contains fol-late which helps to develop the new cells of the body. Similarly it contains fiber, iron, anti-oxidant elements and vitamin that make the body healthy. This also covers the constipation problem.
To increase the immunity power mushroom is very beneficial. This also activates the blood cells. This is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-tumor. Eating 30 gram mushroom per day increases the immunity power.
It contains Glutathione which makes the immune power strong. Eating this as a salad provides the protein and calcium in the body.
There are trees that “weep” and trees that “quake,” trees that are “bitter,” “brittle,” “common” and “dynamite.”
But trees that sleep?It sounds strange.
Scientists from Austria, Finland and Hungary did the research using lasers to measure the overnight movements of birch trees.Their unexpected finding: During the hours of darkness, the trees appeared to relax, or droop, their branches at the tips by as much as 4 inches.
No one has observed this effect before at the scale of whole trees, and the extent of changes.
At the center of the research were two birches, one in Finland and one in Austria. Their canopies were scanned with lasers from sunset to sunrise at regular intervals, each over the course of a single night. The conditions in each location were the same: no rain, little wind and during the solar equinox so that the length of darkness was relatively equal.“The results obtained from the measurements showed it’s similar temporal response.Close to sunrise, the branches were hanging lower than at the time of sunset.
The team offered two hypotheses for their findings: The drooping could be because of a loss of internal water pressure, called turgor pressure, causing the branches and leaf stems to lose their rigidity. Because turgor pressure results from photosynthesis — the use of sunlight to create sugar from carbon dioxide and water, which only happens during the day — the trees would appear to relax with the darkness.
The other explanation is that trees really are resting, following the same circadian rhythms of other flora and fauna. In the daylight, leaves and branches are angled upwards to catch more sun, but during the night, this positioning is no longer necessary.
Recently scientists have identified a gene that allows birds to produce the color red in their beaks and retinas.
The color red has been widely associated as a signal for communication in the animal kingdom.Especially this characteristics is used to attract the mates,as female birds are said to be generally attracted to males with beaks that have a brighter red color.The mentioned features of the color red are particularly present among zebra finches, and in a new study, researchers were able to identify, for the first time, the genes that enable them to generate the all-important red pigment in their bodies.

The team also found the said gene cluster in the retina of the birds.”It was quite a surprise that the same genes are involved both in seeing red colors and making red coloration,” says study author Nick Mundy. Now, the team is looking at further working on the genetics of red coloration in other species, particularly in widow birds and bishops.
Dragon plant can initiate f!*re comes, which may sound awkward but it is true. This video will clear out all the dilemma regarding this topic. You can clearly see a f!*re coming out from dragon plant . This plant catches the f!*re and it comes out as a bl@st of fire. It completely bu*rn when we light the fire on it leaves. It works same as a lighter get, which means the f!*re will come after a lighting of fire and will stop by itself likewise. This plant is similar to a monster plant .
A tre*kker have found a bunch of dragon plant on his way during a trekking in this video. Dragon plant is on the side of the small narrow road, where the vehicles can not go but people use the way as trekking route. He is attempting an experiment with this plant. He takes out his lighter and lights the lighter near that plant. And as a result the plant easily catches the f!*re and starts to burn. Also, it immediately cooled down itself shortly after got bu*rn
So here in this video you can see the amazing plant that will left you sho*ck.
Dreaming is one of the most mysterious and interesting experiences in our lives.

State fairs in America are always a fascinating glimpse into a rural part of life that so few of us ever actually see anymore.Each state fair is unique in its own special way but one that stands out from all the others is the Alaska State Fair and its fantastic giant vegetable contest.
The Alaska State Fair held annually in Palmer, 42 miles northeast of Anchorage, is not your regular agricultural show. Here farmers from the Matanuska-Susitna Valley routinely display vegetables and produces of gargantuan sizes — a 138-pound cabbage, 65-pound cantaloupe and 35-pound broccoli are just a few of the monsters that have sprung forth from Alaska’s soil in recent years.”Some things are so big, you can’t even recognize what they are,” said the fair’s crop superintendent Kathy Liska.
Why do vegetables grow so big in Alaska?This is all because of the sun.
Alaska typically has a very short growing season, only 105 days, on average.The state is located close to the north pole where it enjoys up to 19 hours of sunshine each day, during summer and at the peak of the growing season. The extra hours of sunlight allows Alaskan crops to just keep growing and growing. Even through the growing season is months shorter than the rest of the country, Alaska’s gardeners grow some of the largest vegetables in the world.
