Where do I put my mirror?

topic posted Wed, November 29, 2006 - 9:12 AM by  Rhiannon
I know there are some "rules" surrounding mirrors, but am fairly ignorant as to exactly what they are. Could I place my full-length mirror, facing the entrance of my bedroom? Beside it? What about beds? How should my mirror be situated in regards to my bed?

Thanks for the enlightenment!

    In General, If you desire to have more of something in your life make sure its reflection is in the mirror.
    Having your mirror face the bed many increase your desire to sleep (and other things) however.

      Also it is very important that you place the mirror in such position that you do not see
      your reflection when you are in your normal sleeping position.
      Several chinese traditions equate sleep with death...

    Not recommended to put the mirror across the entrance of your bedroom. If you want positive chi like more light, place the mirror where it can pick up light and reflect it back into the room.

    When you sleep, you should not see your reflection in the mirror as you will have sleepless nights. Therefore no mirrors should be across your bed. It is said that when sleeping, the astral is attracted to the mirror and you get sleepless nights. Have checked this out with several people who have their mirror reflecting their bed.

    Mirrors are for dressers, vanities, dressing rooms, or areas beside doors. Or you use mirrors to five the illusion of space. Pakwa or bagua mirrors are a different story altogether and used to deflect negative chi and obstructions.

    Hey, thanks for all the info! I like the idea of light, so I think I'll put it across from my window. I do love sunshine...

      Mirrors bring better and less glaring light to a room is they are placed ajacent to, rather than opposite, a window. In other words, if your window is North, place the mirror on the East or West wall.

      I don't recommend mirrors opposite beds. Reflected light at night can give people problems with sleeping.
