Cul-de-sacs are often called dead-ends for a reason. If you feel drained of energy, tired, and blocked in your life, and you live on a cul-de-sac, your street could be draining your home of life-affirming chi. The movement of chi into a cul-de-sac is too quick and violent, leaving the home's inhabitants drained of energy, depressed and unmotivated.
If the cul-de-sac where you live is square, the homes facing the corners will receive the worst negative effects from this rushing chi -- but Feng Shui cures can abate difficulties. Or if you are in direct line of the road, it may lead to divorce or financial difficulty.Adding Cures to the Cul-de-sac
If permitted by regulations, you can add an enclosure to the center of your cul-de-sac. This small enclosure should house trees, a fountain, windmill or flagpole. This will slow the flow of chi while keeping it moving through the cul-de-sac, circulating into homes, and leaving in a healthy way.
You may also add flags to your house, and the other houses in the cul-de-sac, or use lighting on the rooftops. Using Feng Shui Cures on the Homes in the Cul-de-sac
If rules and regulations prohibit adding a structure to the center of your cul-de-sac, you'll have to limit cures to individual houses. To re-direct the flow of chi and counteract the draining effect, you can:
- Place a windmill on the roof
- Add a mailbox or trees
- Plant tall trees in the back yard, especially near a bedroom to protect the bedroom from the rushing chi and help occupants sleep better.
