Mirror is a common furniture in almost everybody’s home. We usually have a mirror in the toilet, a mirror in the wardrobe and sometimes even one in the kiving room. If mirror has an impact on Feng Shui, its effect would inevitably be felt by almost everyone of us.
Feng Shui Mirrors – What Do They Do?
A few weeks ago I came across a term called Feng Shui mirror. Somebody was selling such kind of thing in a local market. The seller claimed that by hanging the mirror on the wall you would get better luck.
Does Feng Shui mirror ever exists? Before I answer this question I should explain the effects of mirror in Feng Shui.
We all know mirror reflects light. If you switch on a torch and point it to a mirror, you will see the light being reflected back to you. The stronger the light of the torch, the stronger the reflected light.
Mirror has the function of a reflector in Feng Shui. If there is good Chi in a particular corner of your house, it reflects the good Chi. On the other hand, if there is bad Chi it brings it out. The stronger the Chi the bigger the impact. If there is a mirror in a sickness direction, the mirror will bring out the bad energy.
You may consider mirror a amplifier of energy. It does not filter the energy, i.e. it would not block out bad energy or convert bad energy into good. So in practice there is no such thing as Feng Shui mirror because every ordinary mirror can do everything a Feng Shui mirror can do.
The Best Practice of Using Feng Shui Mirrors
So the truth about Feng Shui mirror is that it has good effect only if you place it in he right place. If you are not sure where the good / bad directions of your house is, my recommendation is to avoid putting mirrors at unnecessary locations. Only put them in the toilet and where you make up and dress.
If you can get an expert’s help, mirror could really be used for good Feng Shui. For example, many Feng Shui masters use Feng Shui to magnify the positive effects of the good Flying Stars in good directions.
Besides, sometimes Feng Shui masters would use convex mirrors to reduce the bad effects of external “Sha”. “Sha” is something bad in shape that could constitute a threat to the Feng Shui of your house. A typical example of external “Sha” is a sharp angle pointing to your house’s door or window. In this case, some Feng Shui masters would hang a convex mirror facing the “Sha” in hope of reducing the bad effects experienced.
If in doubt, ask a local Feng Shui master!
