Today:- Vastu Shastra highlights sleep as an important aspect for good health. Sleeping in the wrong direction may cause health problems. In various religions and beliefs there are different approaches for head placement while sleeping. So you can take your choice which method or approach you prefer, but it would seem north and west is not a good idea in majorities of beliefs.
Sleeping in north direction may cause difficulties in having children, nightmare and disturbed sleep. if you place your head to the north and stay that way whole night, the magnetic pull will cause pressure on your brain. It is not that if you do this for one day, you will fall ill. But if you do this regularly, you are asking for trouble. What kind of trouble depends on how strong your body system is.
The direction your head while sleeping has a strong effect on your physical and mental health. Head placement means the direction the top of your head points when lying down straight.
Some says that the best position for sleeping is with the top of your head pointing to the south and feet pointing towards north. It brings health, longevity according to traditional Hindu texts.
You are not advice to sleep with the top of your head pointing to the north and feet pointing to the south direction. This position may brings terrible dreams and disturbed sleep. This position may decrease your longevity. You may feel miserable. Irritability, frustration and emotional instability may occur. It sucks positive vibrations from your body while you sleep. Your physical and mental health will suffer adversely.
According to Vastu shastra, the human body acts as a natural magnet with the head as its North Pole and the legs as its south poles. If we point our head towards north while sleeping, the North Poles of the earth and body will repel each other as same poles repel each other. This will affect the blood circulation and cause disturbed sleep and stress. The alignment of our body while sleeping matters because the flow of energy through the earth affects our own magnetic field. It is quite likely that the ancients were aware of some of the influence that the earth’s energy has on the human body.
