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.
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 with the Former Heaven Sequence arrangement of the trigrams, in the octagon shape, 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.
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.
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.
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 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.
I do say a prayer, and ask clients to 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.
- If 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.
