How to Use a Feng Shui Bagua Mirror (and what I use instead)

There is a lot of misinformation on how to use a Feng Shui Bagua Mirror. Lots of bad advice out there.

Perhaps the most destructive advice is the suggestion to put a mirror above a toilet, but any advice to put a bagua mirror inside of the home is wrong.

The bagua mirror is an outside cure.

how to use a feng shui bagua mirror

The purpose of a bagua mirror is to deal with negative energies on the outside of a building. This round or octagonal mirror is surrounded by an octagon that contains the 8 trigrams (a trigram is a combination of three lines, some solid and some split, used in the I-Ching) organized in the Former Heaven Sequence. This is helpful in protecting a building from negative or destructive chi.

A bagua mirror has the Former Heaven Sequence arrangement of the trigrams, in the octagon shape. It disperses negative energy into the 8 directions. The 8 directions are: South, North, East, West, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest. Any energy that is not dispersed, is believed to be reflected back to its source by the mirror. how to use a feng shui bagua mirror

Here’s How to Use a Feng Shui Bagua Mirror

Not all Feng Shui bagua mirrors are the same. Here’s how to use a Feng Shui Bagua Mirror, depending on the type of mirror and need.

A flat or convex (bulging out) Feng Shui bagua mirror is used to disperse and deflect destructive chi. This destructive chi may come from a sharp corner in another building. These mirrors are also used when a home is at the end of a “T” intersection.

A concave (sinking in) bagua mirror is used to diminish the negative effects of having your building facing a much larger building (such as a skyscraper). You can use these also if your business faces a large ominous structure (such) as a parking garage. how to use a feng shui bagua mirror

Place a Feng Shui bagua mirror right above the top beam of your main entrance on the outside.

Problems with Using a Feng Shui Bagua Mirror

The problem with using a bagua mirror is that:

  • First, you are duplicating a problem, because mirrors always duplicate the things that they reflect.
  • Second, you are sending bad energy back to its source. This means that there is potential for acquiring karma from causing harm to another.
  • Third, a bagua mirror placed to “reflect back” bad energy can affect you negatively as you are coming home and approaching your own front door.

I have not, in my over 17 years of doing Feng Shui, ever met a person that felt comfortable using a bagua mirror. Good people do not want to send back any bad energy to anyone, or to make enemies out of their neighbors. Also, think about what may happen if the neighbor across the street knows about Feng Shui and notices you have placed a bagua mirror. They are naturally going to want to put one up too!

A Better Cure than the Feng Shui Bagua Mirror

Whenever one of my clients has needed to put up a bagua mirror, I have recommended a prayer. The prayer was to express the clear intent that their purpose is to protect their home, and not to harm the people living in the building with the offending sharp corner, or the vehicles driving on the street.

Even with the prayer, clients always kept a nagging feeling that they were doing something wrong by placing a Feng Shui bagua mirror.

For this reason, when vibrational healer Bill Austin and I started working on Feng Shui projects together, I asked Bill to create master abstract paintings holding only love Feng Shui frequencies. Then I used these abstract paintings to create a design for a valid replacement for the bagua mirror. Together, we created the sun bagua cure to deal with all problems traditionally addressed with a bagua mirror.

This Sun Bagua Cure works better than the Feng Shui bagua mirror, because it only blesses and protects the building where you place it. It does not harm any other buildings or vehicles nearby. how to use a feng shui bagua mirror

How to Use a Feng Shui Sun Bagua Cure

Use the Feng Shui Sun Bagua Cure in the same manner as the Feng Shui Bagua Mirror. Place the sun right above the beam over the main entrance of your building, on the outside. This is a ceramic ornament. You can use a nail, or you can use strong double sided mounting tape. I have  never heard of one of these cures breaking, even though they are placed outside. If it ever breaks, you should replace it immediately.  In general, any Feng Shui cure you place as protection should be replaced immediately if it breaks or is damaged.

Say a prayer when putting up this cure:

I am like a Sun, the Light of God radiates outwards from the Core of my Being outwards in all directions, embracing everyone and everything I love. I send out Only Love and attract Only Good Things. Less-than-love frequencies get consumed by this Fire of Love, recycled and transmuted for Highest Good, long before they ever reach me. I am Love. I am Peaceful. I am Safe.

When to Use the Sun Bagua Cure

Use the Feng Shui Sun Bagua Cure for these Feng Shui problems:

  • When the corner of a building or its pointy roof are directed towards your home, especially if they are directed towards your main entrance.
  • If your home is located at the end of a T intersection, where cars seem like they are coming right at the house before they turn. Ideally, also place a physical barrier in your front yard, so if a car ever lost their brakes and drove into your yard it would be stopped.
  • Your home or business building has a very tall building or a large and unsightly structure across the street.
  • If you are dealing with difficult neighbors.
  • If you are concerned about robberies.

  1. Moni, what if the difficult neighbor is on the side or in the back of your house? Do you still put the mirror above the front door? Thank you.

    • Very good question. You would still put the mirror, or the Feng Shui Bagua Sun, above the front door, because it is the “mouth of chi.”

    • You can add to this a crystal or salt cure at the back property limit. I will write an article about this soon.

      • Have you wriiten this crystal or salt cure article yet? I can’t seem to find it 🙂 Thank you!

        • Hi Lisa, I haven’t written an article about this, because I realized this is too complex to explain in an article. However, I will soon be introducing mini-courses and I will have one to address the use of crystals, salt and essential oils to deal with difficult neighbors.

  2. I live in a senior building on the 2nd floor, a few feet from elevators. There is a long hallway that ends at my front door. And another long hallway that runs across the front door. I do believe I need a Bagua mirror, cause it does end up like a “t” at my front door. I’m like on the inside part of building. So my living room & bedroom look out to the roof, on which there are some equipment like a.c. & heating units & other stuff. So I think I should also put a Bagua mirror facing out of at least the living room window. But, you don’t have any in stock. I guess I will have to put regular bagua mirrors. I’ve been here only since March and I think it is starting to affect my health.

  3. I live in an aprtment and I can see the balcony of the unit opposite to mine put a bagua mirror, it’s not directly facing my unit but is at approx 45 degrees angle.
    We don’t know each other so I doubt that they are doing it to cause me harm but I am still worried because as you said in your article, the mirror ‘reflects’ bad energy and some of it may affect my place. What can I do to defend?

  4. Very nice article. I’m not comfortable using a mirror but at the moment I’m in an extremely difficult situation. I live in an apartment and the neighbors below me became very noisy. They start shouting early in the morning and I hear all sort of noises all day long. I can’t rest and I can’t meditate anymore. I’m extremely tired due to a severe lack of sleep (I’m already taking prescription medications). In that situation, would it be ok to put a mirror, facing downward, on the floor in the middle of my bedroom? I really need to protect myself and my space at least for a while, but I fear a mirror would insulate myself from grounding energies too.

    • Jerome, the sun bagua cure above your front door would be enough for spiritual/energetic blessings and protections. You may also add something from your particular faith right outside the front door.

  5. I have difficult neighbors next to me. You mention putting the bagua over our main door. My home has a front door, but we do not use it except for receiving guests. We primarily come and go from our back door (we park behind our home). Should I hang it above our front or back door?

  6. Hi Moni
    Where can I buy a Sun Bagua…… I have neighbours that are afflicted with a problem of hoarding. They’re nice people and I mean them no harm but I need to sell my home and their very messy yard puts off potential buyers.
    We also have neighbours behind us that are very noisy on weekends at night time.

  7. Dear Moni,
    I came upon your site and I’ve read the people’s comments. I love the idea using something that does not send bad energy. We have moved into a new appartment for 6 month and it is lovely. However we have neighbours above us, they are noisy very early at morning, especially on sunday and I suspect them to do it intentionnaly. We also have neighbours in the next building, I suspect the woman gossiping about us. I’ve been avoiding using a bagua mirro for month, despite my husband insisting, but is getting worst. Can I use your sun mirror above our entrance, which is inside the building (is that a problem?), facing the main entrance?
    I thank you a lot for your advise and your site.
    Ami.

    • Ami, yes, you can use the sun cure above your entrance inside an apartment building. If you use a bagua mirror and one of your neighbors knows what it is, you will have made an instant enemy.

      • Dear Moni,
        Thank you a lot!
        I will proceed to the ordering of a sun cure. I assume it will as well work against the shar chi of a high building in the back of our building?
        I would like to ask you about the use of compass, which is bothering me since we moved, I do not know for sure if the directions I identified with a regular compass is ok or not, because I heard since we have a great amount of metal around us, it might not give the accurate direction. I saw you addressed the question of compass briefly on your site. Is this the right place to ask?
        Thank you a lot in advance!
        Ami.

        • Hi Ami,

          You only need to place one cure above the main entrance to the home, which is the “mouth of chi,” but the cure will work to offset all energetic problems and obstacles stemming from neighbors or features in neighboring buildings and roads.

          Ami, I do not use a compass other than to determine sun exposure and, in some cases, wind directions. Compass school Feng Shui is based on astrology and numerology rather than on the observation of spaces and how people interact with them. I do not recommend that you get involved with compass school Feng Shui. There are better ways to practice Feng Shui. You can learn how my school is different on this page: http://www.ninestepstofengshui.com/how-the-nine-steps-to-feng-shui-are-different-from-compass-schools/

          • Dear Moni,
            Thanks a lot. I got my sun cure and we just hung it above our front door. Yes I am thinking about the different approaches.
            I will have a closer look on your page.
            Thank you a lot,
            Best,
            Amélia.

  8. Dear Moni
    I have a neighbour opposite me who has put up a bagua mirror above their front door. She is at the end of a T shape road and we are diagonally opposite her ( we are not at the the end of the T but one house up). I would like to please know how we can deflect this bad energy correctly from reflecting on our home without making it too obvious – or duplicating more bad energy by putting up a counter bagua mirror ..or is this the only way ?! She would never take it down so we need to be very sublte about this.
    I would be most grateful for your advice at the earliest. This is very worrying to us.
    Many thanks in advance
    Nell

    • Nimella, is this a neighbor with whom you could have a conversation, or share a link? A good first step may be to share this article with them. It may encourage them to change the bagua mirror for the sun bagua cure. If you cannot have a conversation or share a link, place a sun bagua cure above the beam of your main entrance. You may also need a cure with quartz crystals for the outside, but I would have to look at the aerial views of both homes for that. On the menu of this website, click on CONSULTATIONS and then choose the “Ask 1 Question” option. This service would cover what you need to address this issues.

      • Dear Moni, thanks so much for your reply. Unfortunately this is not a neighbour one can talk with about such things – I can assure you the answer will be no and might cause more problems. So best we just apply a defensive measure without speaking to her. Could I just clarify when you say above the beam of the main entrance – can this therefore be inside ? – because from your previous replies and introduction on the subject, I thought the bagua mirror and sun bagua are solely for outside use. If it can go inside – then great. Where can I go about purchasing one ? I shall see how to get aerial images across, but as a first step I would like to place the sun bagua as it sounds very positive and good.
        Many thanks and much appreciated

  9. Hi Moni,

    I live on the 2nd floor of a multi-storey apartment where my unit’s front door is on a long hallway. My windows and balcony are facing the front of our building and Just across the road is a huge parking lot, and there are also tall buildings directing poison arrows at us. Added to that, there is a big flat roof just outside my balcony that retains water when it rains and gets lots of rotting leaves. Unfortunately, I cannot step on the roof to clean it, and neither does the management do anything about it.

    I understand that I need to put a “sun bagua” over my unit’s door. I am also thinking of putting a sun bagua on each of 2 bedroom windows and over the door from the living room balcony. Would you advice the same or I’m going to overdo it?

    Thank you.

    Ray

  10. Hi Moni,

    We live in a house. We have a neighbour in our front and at the left hand side who is constantly doing black magic. They keep on throwing stuff like, dead snake, chicken feet, coins, iron screws, most of the time plain water and many more.

    We are sick and tired of watching all this. We have gone through big misfortunes in our life and continuously facing damages and financial hardship.

    Our house exit faces west direction and there is no space between our house and the left and right house walls. It’s all super packed.

    Can you please suggest which mirror should we place. I tried ordering your sun mirror but you don’t deliver it to India. We have a scary feeling that something bad might happen as both of these neighbours never give up. They are doing something every single day, some time twice a day. We did huge prayer with the help of 5 priest for 5 continues days and the neighbour who lives right next to us has started something weired. She drills her wall, only one which is attached to our wall for few sec and then she would stop and she has been doing it ever since we started and finished the prayer.

    Please suggest. We really need your help.

    Thank you
    Sk

    • Rishi, I think you need more than a mirror or a sun bagua. I would definitely not use a mirror because that might provoke them further. You probably need to do a metaphysical cure for protection. The prayer with the five priests is good but it called their attention and created a reaction from them. The sun bagua would be OK to use. You need a cure that is hidden, something to protect you and place an energetic barrier between you and them. Click on the menu on the link that says consultation and then choose Feng Shui Essentials Consultation. With that consultation I could help you address this problem of bad neighbors.

  11. Hi Moni,

    As per your suggestions, bagua mirror should not be installed outside home as it will pass it on negative energy back to the sender, which is not good. But I think only Convex bagua mirror does that and not concave mirror. Can you please explain the difference between convex and concave mirror. if not Convex, then can I installed Concave mirror outside home.
    Thanks,
    Nancy

    • Nancy, a concave mirror is also symbolically destructive to neighbors. Traditionally, a concave mirror was used to deal with a huge building across from yours. The mirror reduces it in size and turns it upside down. Regardless of the shape of the mirror, flat, convex, or concave, a neighbor who is familiar with their use and spots one on your home would have an issue with it and be concerned.
