Symbols are the formulator (sutradhar ) of the conscious and the subconscious mind. And man has had this innate knowledge from the beginning, right with the world’s creation. According to linguists, language development has only taken place from symbols. Symbols are an integral part of human life and the mind, even today.
The human subconscious 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 PanchVastu believes – that Bhawna (emotion and intention) is the daughter of Bhavan (building). Emotion and intention are the driving forces of your life.
The analogy of computers best serves to understand the process of the conscious and subconscious mind. The conscious mind is the monitor, and the subconscious mind is 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 the CPU is altogether of a different type. Ninety-five per cent of regular computer users do not know that language. However, it is used for the 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 the form of paintings and colours, sounds in the form of music or noise through the ears and touch from textures through the skin. Different objects in the external world create a complex language for the subconscious mind. Information picked unknowingly by the subconscious mind creates the life you live. Understanding this language and using it to manifest the life you desire is the basis of PanchVastu Programming.
Symbols ‘Speak’ to us.
When placed in a building, a symbol represents something – it says something to our subconscious mind, which then begins to act accordingly. This activates the natural Earth energies to generate a specific effect towards fulfilling our desires. Once these energies sense our passions, they program our subconscious mind accordingly and thus set us towards achieving our goals.
Thus by placing an appropriate symbol in the proper PanchVastu Zone related to our wish, we can program our space for its fulfilment. For example, for a loving relationship with your spouse, put a symbol of Love Birds in the PanchVastu Zone of the Relationship. Your space will get you to know what you want. You and your spouse will subconsciously start behaving in a manner conducive to a cordial and loving relationship between 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 symbols and objects – is what makes PanchVastu unique.
