Mirrors have fascinated humankind since ancient times and have powerful lore attached to them. From protective to reflective to pure "How do I look today?" uses, humans have been using mirrors for centuries.
In feng shui, a mirror brings the energy of the feng shui element of water, and it is easy to guess why. Where do you think the origins of mirrors come from? Of course from us looking into our reflection in the water! Pure, deep, and calm water always serves as a reflection of all that is projected into it.
Mirrors are also used to expand a space, as well as to draw the beneficial Chi, or feng shui energy in.
Mirrors have been called the aspirin of feng shui; with proper placement, they can dramatically shift the flow of energy in any given space. Mirrors also bring a sense of refreshment and calm.
Generally, there are three categories of mirrors in feng shui:
- Typical mirrors as defined by shape (oval, round, square) and frame materials (wood, metal, etc.) For example, a round mirror in a gold leaf frame is a beautiful feng shui wealth and abundance cure that will work well in the Southeast feng shui area of a home.
- Concave mirrors. These mirrors are mostly used outside and produce an upside-down, condensed reflection.
- Convex mirrors have protective qualities, serving as a watchful eye . Mostly used outside, convex mirrors can also be used inside as part of a protective feng shui element of your home design.
