Effortless Accomplishments

Summer Fragrance HostaAfter my husband and I had been in our new Vastu home for 2 or 3 weeks, we began to notice something – an experience we hadn’t had before. Items on our ‘To Do’ list were being dealt with very smoothly and quickly.

David expressed it this way: “Everything seems to be accomplished so easily.” Not only that, but items that were not on our ‘To Do’ list, things we had no intention of doing at this point, seemed to insert themselves and then be completed within hours.

Let me give you an example. We have been doing some landscaping – planting flowers and bedding plants in the new soil around the house before the weeds decide to move in.

Our new Vastu home

We moved into our new Maharishi Vastu home on Salt Spring Island, BC, in March 2011 and what a wonderful experience this has been. Living in Vastu is a remarkable, yet subtle, adventure in consciousness.

I would like everyone to have a taste of what it is like to live in a home that has been carefully crafted in accord with nature’s laws. In the coming weeks and months, I will share with you some of our personal revelations and experiences that arise from living in this very special Vastu home. I look forward to hearing your comments.
