3 types of uses of the Feng Shui Ba Gua mirror
In this case, the use of a mirror is to create virtual space to adjust your focal view of an area. In the study of Feng Shui, the mirror provides us with a new in-depth view of ourselves as it opens up a virtual view on an otherwise plain surface. The mirror can also create a virtual view of an area, and can “expand” the space of the area.
In Feng Shui, a small space represents limitation. Small spaces will limit the flow of Qi in the area, eventually limiting our movement and advancement in life. Thereby, a mirror is often used to virtually expand a small space.
When a Feng Shui mirror reflects an object, it does not only reflect the image of the object, but also the energy the object is emitting. Thereby, it doubles the effect of the energy the object is emitting. For example, if the mirror shows the reflection of a pile of unpaid bills, it will mean that in time to come, there will be more unpaid bills piling up, increasing your debts. On the other hand, if the reflection shows a reflection of a kitchen stove, it symbolizes that your wealth will be doubled as fire stoves symbolize wealth. You can also put reflection of fruits and food which mean an abundance of food, you will never go hungry.
Feng Shui mirrors can be used to deflect the negative energy (Sha Qi) away from your house or business. The mechanism behind this is that it will deflect the Sha Qi back to its source, preventing it from entering the house. Bagua mirrors are used to deflect Sha Qi.
If your intention is to deflect Sha Qi, the Bagua mirror should be placed outside your house.
