Vaastu Practitioner Raymond Prohs


What is Vaastu?

Vaastu Shastra (aka Vastu Shastra) is a form of holistic healing that teaches individuals how to live in harmony with nature and how to influence nature for their benefit.  The holistic healing practice is based on the ancient Vedic science of construction and architecture and is a pre-Feng Shui traditional Indian practice dating back some 5,000 years. In Sanskrit, Vaastu means dwelling, Shastra means scientific treatise.  The principals of Vaastu inform an individual on the best places to live and on the best way to live where a person dwells.

The fundamentals of Vaastu

There are four fundamentals in Vaastu; height, weight, direction and open space. In the context of the direction are the influences of placement; where you place your home, where you place your rooms inside your home, where you sleep. Also influenced is where you place your entrances and exits on your property and in your home: your doorways, windows, driveways and garage.  All of these are very important to maintain a positive auspicious flow of energy.

For example, the energy in the southwest is commanding energy. If you’re in a room, in a house or on a property, the southwest has the strongest commanding energy.  To that end, if a person is sitting and having a meeting or a conversation, the southwest is where one should sit. The most receptive energy comes from the northeast where “beautiful divine energy” comes from; the wisdom and the light and the abundance.  In the northeast, a person wants as much clear and open space as possible.


Another important Vaastu consideration is with clutter.  The more clutter the less flow of energy.  If you are trying to achieve peace in your life, to maintain an infinite flow of energy, you want to have as little clutter as possible.

It is useful to point out that anyone can make these adjustments to their space.  The only thing required is to learn some Vaastu. And by learning these practices and principals you can make some amazing adjustments that will not only affect your life experience, but will also help to change and transform your karma.

Vaastu in practice

Raymond Prohs, a prominent Vaastu practitioner and author of “Mystic Living: The Principals of Vaastu for the 21st Century”, practices a Vaastu tradition called Kaleshwara Vaastu.  This form is named after the knowledge and wisdom brought through Sri Kaleshwara, a saint who refers to knowledge from ancient palm leaf books that are two to three thousand years old.  According to Prohs, in a world of duality the material and the spiritual work in synchronicity. You can improve your spiritually at the same time you are improving your material life. They are not separate.  Rather they enhance each other.  For Raymond and many other Vaastu practitioners, Vaastu is a sacred science; a form of spiritual healing and energy healing.

    This is GREAT! I had a Vaastu practitioner come over to my house and re-arranged quite a few things. Can definitely see a change in energy. Thanks for posting.

    Vaastu Sastra is also a traditional art of making homes in Hindu culture. It is a study of making your home perfect in viewpoint of its orientation. It is a good art and belief as far as I know.
