Cómo usar los espejos según el Feng Shui

mirrors have multiple uses in a house: they can be used for decorative or functional purposes, or even strategic, such as giving a feeling of spaciousness or light to an environment. in feng shui, we carefully analyze where to place them, because beyond the unique uses, what matters to us is how to modify the energy of a place.

In the old days, the feng shui masters considered the mirror to be a metal element, because they were polished on this material, but today, when they are made of glass, they activate the energy of water. this is one of the aspects to consider when choosing its place in the house (if you want to know how to balance the yin-yang of your house, keep reading).

It is also very important to bear in mind that mirrors double the qi they reflect, therefore, we must pay attention to the message that they are promoting in a room. sometimes, this can be very favorable and in others, very harmful. Another characteristic of mirrored surfaces is that they produce energy flows with rebounds, which accelerate the qi causing discomfort if we are exposed to them for a long time.

Strategically well located, the mirror serves to recover absent areas, activate weak sectors, hide aggressive forms, enlarge small spaces, multiply favorable symbols, divert energy. It is also useful so that the person with their back to a door can see who is entering.

On the other hand, you should get rid of broken, worn or dull mirrors, and those that belonged to other people are not recommended (mirrors keep their memory), nor are the sectioned versions for artistic purposes , because they distort the reflected images. In all these cases, the mirrors emit sha qi, or harmful energy, as well as those that, even when in perfect condition, reflect unfavorable images.

how to use mirrors according to feng shui

feng shui seeks to use mirrors in a way that boosts sheng qi (positive energy) or neutralizes shar qi (harmful energy).

provided they reflect pleasant images, you can place them in the living room to activate sectors that represent personal aspirations, they are: the northeast of finances, the south of work and career, the east of family and health. When there are elevators on the other side of the living room wall, it is advisable to place a mirror on that wall to cure the energetic instability that the elevator projects.

In the dining room, it is placed at a height that reflects the table served, as long as the guests are not “cut out”, thus duplicating the idea of ​​abundance.

In other rooms of the house we can place them to reflect valuable symbols, such as a money vase, a work of art, a water fountain. In small spaces or with poor lighting, the mirror works as an amplifier of the available light.

for long corridors, where energy runs without nourishment, mirrors are used as points of attraction that slow down the rapid passage of qi. they are placed alternately on each side wall, without facing each other. Conveniently, on the walls of stairs, they help conduct qi and smoothly modulate its path.

in commercial premises they can be used to cover square columns, in this way they neutralize hostile arrows from the corners. a mirror reflecting the cash register doubles the energy of the incoming money.

mirrors: what to avoid according to feng shui

It is very common to find a mirror in the hall area of ​​a home, but if it is reflecting the front door, it is considered very unfavorable, since it repels the entry of vital energy into the home .

In bedrooms, the use of mirrors is very restricted because the electromagnetic energies are amplified by the action of their surface and the hours of rest emerge and, therefore, health. They should never reflect the bed, if you don’t want to take it out, cover it with a blanket while you sleep. Do you know how to improve the energy of your bedroom? here, a guide to enhance the energy quality of the room.

at the end of a staircase or a long corridor always avoid the mirror, since the energy will bounce at the end of the flight, you will experience a feeling of discomfort.

a mirror should never reflect the fire of the burners or a stovebecause it dangerously doubles this yang energy. It should also not be facing the door of a bathroom: it doubles the excessively yin energy that these environments usually have.

why you don’t have to hang facing mirrors

never hang mirrors facing each other, or at an angle: in these situations light bounces are produced that emit sha qi.

The mirrors that reflect the doors or windows repel the energy that enters through the opening, preventing it from circulating in a nutritious way inside.

Remove them or cover them with decorative vinyl if they reflect sharp edges, beams or sharp edges. the same slogan applies if they reveal sectors without harmony: a basket of dirty clothes, garbage cans, electrical cables and sockets, archived papers such as newspapers and magazines, accounts payable.

The ideal height to hang a mirror is 1.60 m from the floor, otherwise they could “cut off” the head of whoever looks at it, generating feelings of low self-esteem (“not I’m important enough to see my full image”).

Mirrors on the ceiling should only be used in very specific cases, such as very low ceilings in dark places. covering furniture surfaces, such as tables and plates, can radiate uncomfortable reflections and partitioned images.

how to choose mirrors

I always preferred whole pieces, smooth, shiny and wide. Those of a circular, square or vertical shape are favorable, of dimensions appropriate to the available space and that do not cut the human image. they can be framed in metal, fabric, wood; avoid asymmetrical or pointed frames, opt for linear or wavy and symmetrical ones.

discards models that deform the image (beveled, magnified, painted on the surface). mirrors with grayish or dark tints deactivate the vital energy of the place projected an excessively yin qi.

Very old specimens, especially if they belonged to or people who did not have good feng shui, have accumulated information to which I do not advise exposed places.

The mirrored spheres, very common in miniature pendants, are better replaced by faceted crystals that radiate a very positive qi, especially when they receive sunlight.

special mirrors for feng shui

Feng shui also uses reproductions of old metal mirrors with a concave, flat or convex shape, framed in an octagon (pakua) that recreates the balance of the universe. These mirrors are used as specific cures according to the characteristics they present:

  • flat: it is called pakua lion with sword. It is a flat metal mirror with an octagonal shape that is used as a neutralizer of negative energies in interiors. it is placed in the center of the upper edge of the door frame to prevent the entry of hostile qi into an environment.
  • concave: this spherical mirror is characterized by having an inward curvature, concentrating the rays that are reflected in it. It is used outdoors, on the outside of doors and windows, in the center of the upper frame to neutralize hostile energies that come from the front.
  • convex: is also a spherical portion, but its reflective part is located outside of it. it does not show real images because the light rays emanating from the object do not intersect each other, therefore the images they reflect are always virtual. It is used outdoors, on the outside of doors and windows, in the center of the upper frame to disperse hostile energies that come from the sides.
