Feng Shui Bedroom Mirrors? A lot has been written in about the mirror in the bedroom.
Is it bad Feng Shui to have a mirror in the bedroom? What is the design rules governing placement of mirrors in the bedroom?
I come across this question frequently in my practice. As a rule the mirror should be placed in such a way that you are not able to see your reflection from the bed.
Why? I have not been able to find a scientific reason but here is one that is frequently cited. You may wake up unexpectedly in the middle of the night and mistake your wife’s reflection for a ghost! Apparently a woman can look quite different without make-up and with their hair down! Of course I will never know because my mirror does not reflect my bed! (BTW, I am not a MCP!)
In my practice, I encourage my clients to place their mirrors in the attached bathroom or in the walk-in closet. If they insist on a mirror in the bedroom, I would encourage them to buy a free standing long mirror that they can turn away from the bed when they go to sleep.
What about the wedding photo? Is it bad Feng Shui to place it above the bed head?
I think a lot depends on where you live. If you live in an earthquake area, then you should definitely find a safer location for your wedding photo. If the photo frame is not securely hung, a minor tremor can send the photo frame crashing onto you and your spouse. And this will certainly qualify as bad Feng Shui!
What about the mirror under the bed? My clients have asked me about this but I have no answers. None of my ‘sifu’ has said anything about this!
