Every house has an energy and a personality, pretty much like people. Sometimes a place is warm and welcoming and at others, it could be cold and aloof, even defiant and angry at those who dared to defy its boundaries and presume to call it their own. Whether or not we are sensitive we can't deny we all pick up vibes from the house we live in!
And very often it isn't just you who chooses the house, the house chooses you too. Despite all my spiritual and occult leanings, I do like to pride myself on being pretty common sense, and really feel that there is a myriad of factors that shape our lives. Over the years, I have come to learn that being at peace with the deity or the energies in your home is paramount, and as important as getting other things done.
In Thailand, many houses are mapped out and a small spirit house is placed in the center of the house. Apartment complexes have spirit houses so that the resident deity can be honored.
In 1988, we moved to Calcutta, Salt Lake City. My father was a pilot with the Indian Air Force, on deputation to a small airline carrier Vayudoot, that was new and upcoming. He was all out a family man, and he made sure that we were in a lovely community in Salt Lake. We moved in and loved our home. We were a family of four, and I have a younger sister, and it was blissful. Being kids from the defence services, we loved moving constantly since our family is close-knit. Eight months into our idyllic stay there my father crashed on duty. We took a few months to wind up and left Calcutta for good. The house stayed vacant for a few months and then a pilot from the Indian Army, moved in. This gentleman, about the same age as my father and of an equivalent position or Rank, was on deputation to another small carrier Pawan Hans. Eight months into their stay there, he crashed on duty. The family had two daughters. The parallels are unmistakable. I don't know what happened to the house after that. We heard of the second family since the owner of the house was also a Captain from the Indian Army, who happened to tell us, when we had a chance meeting. I guess the house was jinxed but during our time there- it was a happy home.
I've lived in a really creepy house, for a while, when I was on training for Singapore International Airlines, and there was a time when even the most practical of us housemates, did not want to spend a night in that home alone. There'd be footsteps every night around 3 AM, the doors would lock by themselves, the bell would ring at odd hours, I was almost convinced that it was a Poltergeist! I stubbornly refused to leave the house and I guess the entity there let me be. It was a home with hex signs all over the house. In Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, they have witch doctors that specialize in being a physical medium for spirits known as Bomohs. I have always been a student of the occult, so I recognized the well-disguised hex signs hidden in the pelmets of the curtains. We never saw them when we saw the house for rental, else I for one wouldn't have signed up on that house.
I've lived in many happy homes, where I'd begin my day with a prayer of gratitude to the house deity. In 2015, we moved into a gorgeous huge apartment in Singapore. I lost my dog and my kids were ever unwell, and we had such a harrowing time that I consulted Vastu for the first time while shifting house. When I went to meet a friend, at the old condominium, six months later, the elderly matronly indulgent security guard told me that our apartment did not lie vacant at all. In fact, someone moved in, three weeks after we left. They had two children and the older one was mysteriously unwell, pretty much the same as mine. I constantly felt that the deity of that home, which was built in the 1970s did not like having people and for the last few months there, I'd sage the house and request kindness since we would be moving out.
Our present home is a modern airy light apartment, and I connected with the home the moment I walked in. We've been here 4 years and the home just grows on us. When I began my journey of looking at houses in terms of their numerology in addition to sensing the vibes, I realized, that my current home loves the traditional rituals and the occult!! My hubby likes to light an incense in the morning and that is one manner to appease the spirit.
I guess that's enough about my house experiences since I could write a book on the vibes I've picked up visiting friends over the years.
What does the number of your home say about the spirit of your home?
Calculating the number of your home.
Add the number. so if your home is Appt #11-011 The total is = 1+1+0+1+1=4.
Add the number and the Street/Block Number. So if its Block 111, #11-011, Then the number =1+1+1+4=7
You can also convert the name of the building and add it to the number of the home.So OLD HOUSE=6+3+4+8+6+3+1+5=36=3+6=9.
Add the above total to the total of the pin code.
This may give 4 numbers, but we as humans are multi-faceted so are our homes.

The Thai's especially construct a miniature house known as ‘Saan Phra Phum’, or angel house, for the privacy and comfort of the guardian spirit, the Indians have a "Kula Devta", or guardian deity. Whatever is your belief, may your home be happy and joyful.
Have a Blessed time and Bond with your home.
