The importance of mirrors in the home

Mirrors correspond to the element of water and their qualities are directly associated with fluidity, clarity, inspiration, and communication.

Mirrors at the entrance of the home
One of the most recommended places to install a mirror, according to Feng Shui is in your hall or the entrance of your house since this helps to activate the Chi. Although it is important that it is not directly in front of the door, because it reflects the outside. That’s why the best location would be on the side walls to the front door. In addition, if your hall has a long and narrow corridor, the energy current can run too fast in this area, so it is important to fill the space to curb that energy with pictures, some furniture, or mirrors.
Energy and peace in the room
According to the ancestral beliefs of Feng shui, the best way to enhance fertility is with a round or oval mirror at the head of the bed as it can facilitate communication and inspiration. A mirror in the room is also ideal for activating dreams and recharging energy during the night.

Everything you should avoid when decorating
Now that you know how to use mirrors in the best possible way to achieve an energy balance in your home, it is also important to know that there are several mistakes that must be avoided so as not to affect energy.
Never in front of the doors
For starters, mirrors should never reflect doors as it will cause energy to leak through them, but if you have no choice make sure to always keep that door closed. Also, avoid placing mirrors in front of windows.

In the room but not in front of the bed
The mirrors inside the room can be very convenient, but you have to be careful not to put them directly in front of the bed since the mirrors stimulate and make the Chi flow directly. This means that they can attract to the bedroom an excessive amount of energy that is being fed back all night and you may not be able to rest well.
Avoid placing multiple mirrors together
If you plan to fill a large space with mirrors, it is best to opt for a large mirror because if many are placed together multiple reflections could cause disorientation of energy in the home.

Farewell to broken or old mirrors
Although old mirrors can be stylized on some occasions, always try to decorate with new mirrors or in excellent condition, since fragmented, very old, or broken mirrors can blur and deform the image and according to Feng Shui, mirrors must reflect the images clearly and clearly.
Avoid clutter always
Finally, it is very important that the mirrors that are placed inside the home never reflect disordered areas, since the basic principle of mirrors is that they reflect and enhance everything that is in front of them. So if you want a quiet, organized, and peaceful home, be sure to direct the mirrors toward what you want to multiply within your home.
In the discipline of Feng Shui, there are many tools to attract love, good energy, and even peace, and mirrors are only one of those that can be used, but remember that you can combine the use of plants, mirrors, and even quartz to ensure that your space always has good energy.
