Mirrors move energy around your home in lots of different ways. And if you’re a fan of Feng Shui (or even just energy!), then you’ll want to know where you shouldn’t be placing a mirror.
1. In the bedroom
A mirror across from the bed can bring a third party into the relationship. Hmmmm we don’t want that. Mirrors can create all kinds of illusions and attribute to insomnia. An explanation is that when we sleep our soul leaves our body and when it sees itself in a mirror at night it becomes startled and this is not good energy! I don’t like the sound of that one, so it’s probably best to leave mirrors out of the room altogether. So keep the mirrors in the ensuite or a walk-in-robe, or inside a robe door.
2. On a neighbouring wall
Mirrors are a portal of energy so don’t place a mirror on a wall which adjoins your neighbours house (like in a unit). You don’t want any of their energy creeping in to your home!
3. Across from clutter
Obviously mirrors reflect everything. You don’t want to see 2 lots of clutter do you? The reflection should be one of calm and cleanliness. You want to attract tidy, not messy.
4. Across from another mirror
Bouncing energy between the 2 mirrors is unsettling and frantic. You can lose perspective in your home. You’ll feel more grounded when mirrors aren’t reflecting each other.
5. Across from the front door
My favourite of all time. Never put a mirror at the end of a hallway when it reflects your front door. If any good energy comes in it will immediately be bounced back outside.
