Mir­rors rep­re­sent the wa­ter el­e­ment in feng shui which sym­bol­ises self-im­age, re­fresh­ment and clar­ity of mind. They ab­sorb and re­flect pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive en­ergy cre­at­ing a hive of ac­tiv­ity mak­ing their proper po­si­tion­ing vi­tal. When prop­erly placed, mir­rors can draw in the ben­e­fi­cial chi or shift its flow dra­mat­i­cally ‘cur­ing’ a neg­a­tively en­er­gised area. So use mir­rors around your home wisely with the fol­low­ing feng shi tips:

a mir­ror near the en­trance of your home to ac­ti­vate the wa­ter el­e­ment of this wel­com­ing space in­stantly. Make sure it is al­ways on the side. Do not po­si­tion the mir­ror di­rectly op­po­site the door­way else the good en­ergy will be re­flected right out the door.

frag­mented or bro­ken mir­rors im­me­di­ately as this rep­re­sents a bro­ken im­age or a bad rep­u­ta­tion. Also avoid smoked glass mir­rors .They are hazy and pre­vent clar­ity of mind.

not hang mir­rors di­rectly op­po­site each other. This cre­ates dis­tor­tion and dis­ori­en­ta­tion pro­mot­ing the neg­a­tive chi of that space.

a feng shui bagua mir­ror (A round con­vex cob­web like mir­ror) out­side your house to de­flect neg­a­tive en­ergy and the Sha Chi or ‘poi­son ar­rows’ that comes from sharp edges point­ing di­rectly at you, such as ta­ble cor­ners, sharp edges of build­ings or con­crete struc­tures.

feng shui ar­eas to have a mir­ror are the east (health and fam­ily), south east (wealth and abun­dance) and the north (ca­reer paths) Bagua ar­eas of your home. How­ever avoid mir­rors in the south (fame and rep­u­ta­tion) bagua area of your home.

mir­ror fac­ing a bed is con­sid­ered a taboo in feng shui as it drains and de­pletes your en­ergy when your body needs it most: while rest­ing and re­pair­ing of cells. Ide­ally re­move it but if the mir­ror can­not be repo­si­tioned just an­gle it so that it does not re­flect the bed at night. How­ever, if it is fixed, then cover it with a cur­tain or drap­ery so that you can­not see your­self in at night.

square and rec­tan­gu­lar mir­rors for bal­ance, oc­tag­o­nal for power and cir­cu­lar mir­rors to pro­mote unity among fam­ily mem­bers.
