Symbols are the formulator (sutradhar ) of the conscious and the sub-conscious mind. And man has had this innate knowledge from the very beginning, right with the creation of the world. According to linguists, development of language has taken place from symbols only. Symbols are an integral part of human life and mind, even today.
The human sub-conscious mind understands only the language of symbols. The expansion of the sub-conscious mind is in two domains - first the sub-conscious mind of a human being and second the inner space of a building. The human mind evolves from the Space where he lives - the space inside the building. The philosophy of MahaVastu™ believes - Bhawna (emotion and intention) is the daughter of Bhavana (building). Emotion and intention are the driving forces of your life.
The analogy of computers serves best to understand the process of both the conscious and sub-conscious mind. Conscious mind is the monitor and sub-conscious mind the CPU (Central Processing Unit). The CPU works according to the information registered on the monitor. It does not perform any analysis on its own. The language of CPU is altogether of a different type. Ninety-five percent of regular computer users do not know that language; though, it is used for programming of computers. A computer program is like a set of instructions, written in that particular language. Similarly, the conscious mind gathers information through the five senses (Eye, Ear, Nose, Tongue, Skin), visuals through the eyes in form of paintings and colours, sounds in the form of music or noise through the ears and touch from textures through skin. Different objects in the external world create the complex language for the sub-conscious mind. Information picked unknowingly by the sub-conscious mind creates the life you live. Understanding of this language and using it to manifest the life you desire is the basis of MahaVastu Programming.
Symbols 'Speak' to us
When placed in a building, a symbol represents something - it says something to our sub-conscious mind, which then begins to act accordingly. This activates the natural Earth energies to generate a specific effect towards the fulfillment of our desires - once these energies sense our desires, they program our sub-conscious mind accordingly and thus set us moving towards the achievement of our goals.
Thus by placing an appropriate symbol in the appropriate MahaVastu Zone related to our wish, we can program our Space for its fulfillment. For example, for a loving relationship with your spouse, put a symbol of Love Birds in the MahaVastu Zone of Relationship. Your Space will get to know what you want and you and your spouse will sub-consciously start behaving in a manner conducive for a cordial and loving relationship between the two of you. Thus, helping us read into the symbolic messages from the Universe; and take the desired steps to convey our wishes to the Universe through the use of symbols and objects - is what makes MahaVastu unique.
