Mirrors are generally used as a reflection. People use them to look at themselves. With Feng Shui, they help to bring in water. They are also used to pull in the Chi method in addition to widening space. Mirrors can change the way energy flows in a certain area. They are good for bringing peace and a fresh new outlook on life.
With Feng Shui, three types of mirrors are used. Here’s a brief synopsis of them:
- Convex – These mirrors are considered to represent protection. They are the eyes and ears and most of the time, are utilized apart from Feng Shui. They can also be used within the concept, but they have to be framed a certain way.
- Concave – Most of the time, these mirrors are not used inside Feng Shui. The reflection from the mirrors is a smaller version that is turned upside-down.
- Typical – Depending on the shape and the frame, it represents a certain Feng Shui cure. They are usually placed in the Southwest portion of your area.
There’s also the Ba-Gua Mirror, which is separate from the three mirrors mentioned above. It is very powerful and for the most part, people don’t use it correctly. It is only made for outdoors, not indoors. If you’re not feeling the right kind of energy in your home or business, then this type of mirror will come in handy for you. This mirror is not to be used for decoration.
The Ba-Gua mirror is found in concave and convex formats. The Ba-Gua itself is made from wood and there is a choice of green, red or gold.
The Ba-Gua mirror is good to use if you need to protect yourself from harm or danger, such as attacks against you or if there are people out to harm you.
You should consult with a person that is knowledgeable in Feng Shui in order that it is placed in the right area. Most times, it is placed above the main entrance to your home. One place that it should not be placed is in the living room.
