Mirrors in Feng Shui

NO NON-SENSE FENG SHUI - Feng Shui Master Aldric Dalumpines - The Freeman

Mirrors are popular feng shui cures worldwide. They, in feng shui principle, attract positive vibes and repel negatives. Thus, mirrors are bad energy filters. No wonder in the paranormal world, mirrors trap bad energies like ghosts and bad spirits.

From the fairy tale “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the loveliest/handsomest of them all?” to the contemporary, “Who is the luckiest of them all?” questions, here are tips on the myths and truths about mirrors in feng shui.


•A cracked or broken mirror brings seven years of bad luck. It simply means a broken self image.

•Never take pictures or selfies with a mirror in the background as ghosts may appear.

•Never put a mirror on the wall facing entrance door. This is not true, only bad for nervous people.

•Mirrors imply third party lovers. Not true at all, depends on how you manage your relationships.

•Bad kitchen stove feng shui can be remedied by putting a mirror atop the stove. Wrong, it doubles the troubles.

•A bedroom ceiling mirror doubles your love and sex life satisfaction. Wrong, constant exposure to mirrors will drain your positive life energies leading to mental illness.

Now for truths about mirrors:

•Full length mirrors reflecting dining table doubles prosperity and food on the table. Best for offices, stores, restaurants, too, to double sales turnovers.

•No mirror should face any bed in the bedroom. True, as it drains you of your vital energies and reflects negative vibes to your body all the time, aside from being vulnerable to peeping toms, thereby losing your privacy.

Three types of mirrors in feng shui

•Flat mirror: Used to remedy bad feng shui in perpendicular manner or 45-degree angle only. Limited scope of protection.

•Convex mirror: Covers 180-degrees perspective like a car windshield view, fan shaped, thereby allowing more protection.

•Concave mirror: Used mainly to cure cul de sacs and dead end as well as T shaped junctions of property locations. The main reason is good karma so as not to harm neighbors and get inflicted back due to karmic retribution.

What to avoid in feng shui

Ba Gua or Pa Kua mirrors: These octagonal Chinese mirrors, though popular, are not meant to be used for residences or offices, as well as business premises. They will lock up your current state in all eight directions, not allowing any prosperity to enter. This is only for cemetery mausoleum feng shui to prevent the spirit or ghost of the dead from roaming as a hungry ghost and be in peace. Thus, never use octagon or eight-sided mirrors, too. While mirrors enliven and expand visual space in interior decoration and design, be wary of mirror feng shui implications on what to avoid or use.

When finally compliant with feng shui principles, mirrors bring harmony not only to a given space but also to human beings.
