Feng Shui is an ancient practice among the Chinese but has been widely used in the Western World for a long time now. It basically works by balancing the flow of chi in one's home. In short, when applied properly, it brings good fortune. One of the most common items used in Feng Shui is the mirror. By knowing exactly where to position it according to the principles of Feng Shui, you can bring good luck in your home or office.
When placing mirrors in the foyer, avoid placing them opposite the front door as it can prevent positive energy from entering your home. Instead, place it on either side of the door. Choose those that are rectangular in shape if you are looking for balance. For unity, choose circular ones instead. And for power, go for the Bagua mirror, which has eight-sides.
Baguas are considered powerful and should only be placed outside the house. They are usually placed in areas across pointed edges. Angles and edges are considered poison arrows in Chinese tradition and can bring bad luck once it is pointed inside the house. Interestingly, Baguas are said to possess powers to counter the poison arrows.
The bathroom is the symbol for marriage, wealth, and fame. To prevent positive energy from flowing out of the bathroom, place a body-size mirror just outside the door. If you wish to put a mirror inside the bathroom, avoid placing separate mirrors. Use a whole mirror instead that will allow you to get a clear view of yourself and enhance positive energy as well.
They can bring positive energy when placed in the office as well. Hang one right above your working desk especially if your back is towards the front door so that you can see who's coming in and going out of the room. This mirror placement will help boost up your wealth.
One important thing you should remember is to never place them face to face with each other as this can result in poor chi flow. Whether you're a practitioner of Feng Shui or not, the proper placement of mirrors inside the home or the office is still important as it can determine how your interior design would look like.
