5 Ways to Use Mirrors for Good Feng Shui
Mirrors are a very common frame for feng shui and are used for many purposes. On a trivial level, mirrors can make your home brighter and more spacious. These two qualities increase the overall energy of your home: Close your eyes and imagine yourself in a small, dimly lit room, then a large, bright room. Can you feel the difference?
The use of mirrors or other small objects to regulate the flow of qi, or energy, in space is known as the "small addition method" or Xie Zi Fa in Chinese. When using the small additions method, it is important to include your intentions as well. If you decide to add a mirror to your home as a feng shui measure, take a moment to reconnect with your intention and feel why you are placing a mirror in a certain area.
Since mirrors are reflective, they can be strategically placed to invite certain energies into space. You can use mirrors to reflect and duplicate anything you want to amplify. For example, if you place a mirror in your office to reflect the trees outside, you are inviting the energy of wood into your work. It represents the growth and expansion of your career.
A popular feng shui setup is to mirror the countertop. Your stove represents wealth, so visually and energetically doubling your burners can also double your opportunities for wealth. If you choose to place a mirror here, make sure it's not close enough to break the heat.
Correct the Commanding Position
The command post is one of the most important principles of feng shui. When you can't put the stove, bed, or table in the control position, mirrors can help.
For example, if you can't see the door from your bed or table, or stove, a mirror is helpful to correct this problem. A movable standing mirror is easy to adjust for a commanding position. Position the mirror so that you can see the door or the entrance to the room.
Being in a commanding position on the bed, table, and stove can reduce stress levels and increase opportunities as you become more aware of people or things that may come your way.
Invite the Five Elements With Shape
In general, mirrors are connected to the water element. However, by choosing certain shapes or frames for your mirror, you can also add additional elements.
- Round mirrors represent the metallic element, which brings clarity, precision, and playfulness.
- Square or rectangular mirrors bring to the ground, which can help with stability, grounding, and personal care.
- A large rectangular mirror (think of a tree trunk) has the wood element, which can help with flexibility and cuteness.
- Triangular mirrors, while a bit more unusual, can add a lot of style to your space, in addition to the energy of fire. Bringing more fire is a good option if you are looking for passion, inspiration, or visibility.
Invite the Five Elements With the Frame Color
Another way to incorporate elements into your choice of the mirror is to use the color of the frame. The color of your mirror frame also influences the type of energy it will bring into your home.
Metal: White and gray are associated with the metallic element, so frames with these colors will activate the energy of metal in your home. Metal frames also add this element.
Earth: Earth-tone frames in brown, orange, or yellow will add an earth element. Includes wood frames with a natural finish in brown or neutral tones.
Wood: To bring in the energy of wood, choose a blue, green, or turquoise frame.
Water: For water, choose black or deep navy for your frames.
Fire: If you are looking for more fire energy, choose a bright red or orange frame.
Mirrors to Avoid for Feng Shui Use
From a feng shui point of view, it is better to choose a mirror with a flat surface or a convex or concave mirror. Avoid opaque mirrors that are broken, chipped, or reflecting distorted images. This includes groups of small mirrors; a continuous piece of glass is best.
Don't worry, that doesn't mean you need to get rid of your beloved vintage mirror or fancy mosaic mirror wall. Not everything in your home has to be a dose of feng shui. One of the most important things to keep in mind is that your home should be a place that makes you feel good so that you can always have things at home just because you love them, whether they are traditionally considered "good" or not Shui.
