Feng Shui and Mirrors
Feng Shui mirrors are often called “The Aspirin of Feng Shui” due to the fact that mirrors can create a number of helpful Feng Shui enhancements and adjustments. The following are some of the ways mirrors can be utilized for optimum effect.
How to Use Mirrors in Feng Shui
- Driving away negative energy The Feng Shui mirrors are used to literally push back what is considered to be negative energy. This is done by placing the mirror in a position that is facing the negativity. The mirrors will reflect the negative energy back to it’s source, and away from you.
- The stove effect and doubling your wealth
Your stove is considered a home appliance that may assist you in drawing in more wealth and abundance if you use it wisely. Say you have 4 burners on your stove. Since the number of burners can have an effect on generating wealth, than doubling your burners would be a great thing to do!By placing a mirror in back of your burners, you will be able to clearly see your 4 burners become 8, which in turn, gives you the opportunity to double your wealth!
- Mirrors in bedrooms
Some schools of Feng Shui prohibit any mirrors in a bedroom. Black Hat Feng Shui teaches us that a round or oblong mirror placed on the SW wall of your bedroom can enhance marital harmony.
Never place a mirror at the foot of the bed. This is a no-no in all schools of Feng Shui!
- Opening up spaces.
Mirrors are wonderful in opening up spaces that may be small or cramped.
If your entryway seems congested, first clear the clutter and then add a mirror on the wall to ‘open up’ the small space.
- Reflection of nature
Using Feng Shui mirrors can also be a wonderful opportunity to pull in the wonderful aspects of nature into your space. For this to be accomplished, the placement of a mirror inside the house should be positioned so it faces the element that is desired. In this way, a beautiful lake or the ocean view can be drawn into the home to give an illusion that the natural element is inside the house.
