The questions keep pouring in about how mirrors affect you in your bedroom, and why Feng Shui advises against them.
Here’s an extreme example of the problem Feng Shui has with bedroom mirrors.
The giant mirror beside this bed creates a Feng Shui problem because it reflects everything that goes on in the bed.
There might be times when this is desirable (!) but for the most part we all feel uncomfortable seeing our own reflections when it’s time to rest and relax.
The cold, hard surface of the mirror brings far too much Yang energy into the bedroom. Bedrooms need to be more Yin than Yang in order to nourish you best.
The mirror also reflects and magnifies light and sound in the room, no matter how small. You can fully relax only when light and sound have been minimized as fully as possible.
Adding curtains around the bed might improve the bedroom’s Feng Shui because they can be drawn to protect sleepers from the mirror’s hard energy and create a cozy Yin sanctuary all night long.
If you’re not sleeping well, or are experiencing stress in your relationships, try removing the mirrors from your bedroom for better Feng Shui.
You’ll feel more relaxed and get a better night’s sleep, I guarantee it.
