Incorporating Feng Shui If Your Home Is In A Cul-de-sac

Feng Shui may not operate too well when your home is located in a cul-de-sac.  However, that’s not speaking for all of the homes in that curved area.  There are some homes that have good flow of energy that still may not get the flow of Chi coming through.

Here are some explanations as to why a cul-de-sac home may not receive the proper flow of Feng Shui that it should:

  • When a home is in a cul-de-sac, there is a back and forth movement of shared energy between homes of three or more.  The energy within those homes wavers and can’t be still.  This causes less energy to flow through; of course, this hinges on the homes in that particular cul-de-sac.

Here are some ways that the Feng Shui cul-de-sac issue can be solved:

  • The landscaping should be neat and provide energy.  The homes should also have a quality backing that is sturdy and will hold up.  Evergreens can also be installed in the back of the home.

The walkway to the front of the home should be curved.  Also in the front of the home, plant some greens and decorate with colorful rocks.  At least the person coming to visit will have something to look at as they step to the front of your home.

  • Install a fountain or moving water outside of  your home.  Or you could install a birdbath.  With Feng Shui, the fountain or birdbath should be installed in the direction that your home is facing.  In addition to that, the water flow should be flowing in the same direction.
  • Your front door may need to be a certain color.  If your door is facing North, you may want to opt for a black or blue color for the door.  Since that represents calm, you don’t have to concern yourself with a lot of confusion in and around your home.

Just remember that each home is different, so there may be some homes within a particular cul-de-sac that may have plenty of energy for Feng Shui.  There may be some outside of that area that do not have that energy.  There are several factors that play into this scenario.

Why You Should Not Use Direct Alignment For The Doors In Your Home

When using Feng Shui, it’s important that the doors inside and outside the door are covered.  A lot of people are concerned that this part of the home seems to be on the backburner.  However, it is as important, if not more than the rest of the spaces in the home.  Direct alignment of more than one door is not proper.   It can contribute to bad Feng Shui.

Even though the concept of Feng Shui is to have a balance with the energy flow in your home, having a direct alignment with more than one door cannot work.  The quality of energy flow from Feng Shui is subject to decrease.

One area where you do not want to do this is with the front and the back door.  The majority of the energy from the good Feng Shui is from the front door.  If those two doors are aligned, the energy can travel through the back door.  This is not good because the energy from the good Feng Shui need to permeate throughout your home.  Nourishment is also needed.

Take note of what kind of energy is being created in your home.  If it’s not enough, see what you can do to create more energy for more good Feng Shui.  However, if you door have doors in your home that are directly aligned with each other, there are some things that you can do to remedy that situation:

  • In order for you to change the way the doors are situated, you may have to change the color of one of the doors.  After the color change, the relationship will be different, one of the doors will have more strength than the other.
  • Where the energy is, you can place a small round table there.  The energy will be directed elsewhere and the energy will slow down.  For improvement, add a vase or similar container with fresh flowers.  Doing this will give more credence to the energy.
  • If you don’t want use fresh flowers, get a plant with a pot.  Having a plant will also send the energy in another direction.

The purpose in doing these things is to redirect the energy in another direction.  Don’t forget to incorporate Chi and send the water flow in another direction.  It’s important to keep the energy from Feng Shui flowing in your home.
