“This hub is in no intention to offend the owners of homes who are mirror-fanatics, mirror collectors, the society and the Chinese community for their beliefs of the yin and yang effects on mirrors. My ma is of Chinese descent but doesn't apply this into our life. Believe it or not, you have the freedom to decide.”

I met my Chinese great grandma when I was in my teens. My grandpa brought her to the Philippines for a visit from Peking (Beijing). How lucky I am to have met her because she was the typical tiny built, slender Chinese woman who had lotus feet which were almost covered by her long shiny red and gold embroidered silk dress, and can only walk in small baby steps from the bedroom to the kitchen. She had never communicated with us because none of us spoke her language, except my grandpa who can speak to her fluently since he was born in Peking. My quiet great grandma kept herself in the bedroom most times and she felt comfortable being alone. But I was a little curious and wanted to come closer to her to know her better and make her smile. My curiosity made me peeked in her bedroom so many times where I catch her sitting on the side of the bed facing a tall mirror attached to the closet door almost each time I checked on her. She caught me sneaking on her and I swear she must had sworn at me in that foreign language of hers, too annoyed perhaps, and I never made her smile until she left to fly home to Peking. How I wish my grandma and I had communicated even in actions; and I wonder now what made her always stare at the mirror.

Two friends of mine had mentioned to me what to avoid about mirrors and I just laugh it off. Then, one day, I have to wipe the tall and huge bedroom mirror facing the foot of the bed squeaky clean. I pondered about what one friend had said, “The bed should not be fronting a mirror. It will reflect or suck negative energies and will make you miserable when you wake up.”

“Umm, I don’t think so. If I was feeling bad the night before bedtime, then, it could be possible that I will be feeling the same when I awake.” Big mirrors in the bedroom could actually enhance positive energies such as a playful fun, joy, enhance communication with your partner, cuts tension, widens the room space, and brings forth sexiness. What I try to avoid is never to put a mirror facing a window in case lightning strikes.

Why do majority of the people find it easy to believe in “bad luck” to happen, or believing in superstitious beliefs? Why can’t people be more focused into believing all things good and the goodness that will bring happiness in their lives?

Would you prefer to live a ruled life full of negative, contradicting and unfriendly manipulative beliefs?

Would you stop seeking the practical and positive side of things because you feel that the energy is stronger in the way it is destructively portrayed? How this negative evaluations of an object like the mirror, that easily makes you a slave to its disadvantages and harmful references linking your mind and life forever to traverse in a more cautious but frightening living?

Those who do not easily stumble and fall into believing before examining their own conscience and trusting their capabilities, have good prospects in leading their lives to its practical realities, setting their foot into a harmonious world of positivity and order.

The negative spread of thoughts and way of educating level-minded people becomes conflicting and argumentative to those who opt to find and look toward the process of attunement and balance in behaviours and beliefs in our involvement in the society.

The Yin and Yang Effects of Mirrors

What negative things we learn about mirrors and ways to turn it around.

1. Seven years of bad luck for a broken mirror. What do you think? Does it sound real? How about those mirror manufacturers? How many times do you think a mirror breaks during production and handling? A mirror that accidentally falls and breaks at home, is it caused by a weakening of wall plaster or a wobbly nail or had loosened its grip from previous earthquake visits? A mirror that is strongly secured for years but falls coinciding to the death of the master of the house, or, a death of a family or relative in another place (see ghosts hub…) is believed to have been caused by an evil spirit, a premonition, or is it mere coincidence? Your thoughts and answers to the above examples will determine if you believe in a mirror’s negative meanings or prefer the opposite way. So don’t face a cracked mirror or use a broken one for it creates a cut or a distorted image; of course, what else could it be?

2. The evil reflection in you. “Magic mirror on the wall; Who is the fairest of them all?” You are sad, distressed, miserable, angry and crying. You go to the mirror to examine yourself and show self-pity. All you’re doing is consoling yourself; it is not vain, it is not being conceited (except for the villain Queen in Snow White). Looking at yourself through the mirror makes you feel too sad, but in the next moment you’ve thought of picking yourself up, wash your face and back to believing in yourself that no one should tamper your life like this, that you are your own boss. Would you not look in front of a mirror because you’ve read from somewhere that looking in the mirror when you are angered or sad reflects evilness inside you? If you’ve known what you’ve done wrong or know who you really are as a person, does the mirror have to tell you that there is evil in you? Your feelings, acts and attitude alone would tell you.

3. Releasing of Negative Self. Facing a mirror at the foot of the bed they say releases the negative emotions in you. And how about a mirror near the bed? They say it would reflect those negative emotions back at you? Funny and silly, isn’t it. You have no choice but avoid mirrors in your room. Really, do we have to? So how about checking in to a classy motel room surrounded with mirrors from wall to wall including the ceiling too…mainly for a memorable, playful, lustful, romantic overnight stay? Do you see yourself releasing negativity in your emotions? I bet not; with a bedroom ambience like this, all positive energies reflect yourself and your date mate from the ceiling to the walls. What do you think except if you are going in there because of cheating? Would you even think that a negative energy is waiting for you when you arrive home, instead? That’s your guilty mind, a product of your guilty pleasures that will drive you mad. Don’t blame the mirrors.

4. Ideas coming from a mirror? As a saying goes…”Hang a mirror above head for the space above one’s head is a clearance to developing ideas.” Really? Is it good of an idea for those who are balding? Do you find this at work or in offices? Or maybe you want to try to hang one in your study room or home office and see if it does bring in ideas for you. I think you have to get up; it is time to cook dinner.

5. Inauspicious, inconvenient sightings, unpleasant and evil. Mirrors lined along my hall, are they really creepy? Not for me. Though to many, they consider decorating with mirrors at home with a thorough understanding and consideration. My way of decorating is with the consideration of a small space and appropriate balance of displaying my mirrors. I don’t let my mind fool-play me into frightening myself of unwelcomed illusions. There’s the paranormal contribution to these illusions from stories we’ve read, or because in old times, mirrors were made of metal and reflections were poor.

“Never place them against each other, the energy will bounce off.” I don’t recall bouncing of energies. I have four mirrors fronting each other at home, no intention to do it this way, it is plainly a matter of spacing and balancing objects and the dining mirror gives a multiple reflection of my leaf oval-shaped mirror.

6. Yin back to you. How do you understand this statement? “A mirror hanging before your eyes will return or gather back all the negative energies supposed to be done for that day.” My suggestion is, just close your eyes if you have mirrors hanging around the house, and that if you have extra powerful sense of smell. Just how can one get rid of not looking pass a mirror?

7. The more, the better. Did you say, “The more mirrors in the house, the better?” It welcomes good energies, visitors and guests to your home, even for the home owners. Oh so now, I’m really confused. And so, we just have to avoid the facing of mirrors, and how the mirrors along the hallway contribute creepiness? Let’s just say that a plentiful mirror in the house brings both the yin and yang of its existence.

8. Headache mirrors. Hanging a mirror at home should not “cut off” one’s head; it is said to bring headaches. I have no mirror at home that cut off any heads in the household, but yeah, we get headaches once in a while. Nor hanging it too high over an entrance door or window; it will catch and reflect other people to get hurt, or objects like reflecting neighbourhood houses, cars, trees, etc. But I do believe that hanging a mirror too high will indeed one day hurt someone’s head.

9. Mirror, mirror, I am sick. Facing or looking at yourself in a mirror when you are sick is inviting death into your already ‘ill’ days. Sure, who wants to die just by staring at a mirror? So does this mean if we have to see, let’s say, a doctor named Dr. Quack and he’s got a mirror in his office, should we request to have it covered? How about Dr. Quack examining you with a head mirror he is comfortable with? You’re going to die of a cardiac arrest from a mirror-scare! For those “getting sick” of their own faces that they have to undergo plastic surgery, how are they going to see their faces again? If they do, they’re going to be scared-to-death! And how about the magnifying make-up mirror, because you are feeling sick, you want to view yourself on a suspicion of a virus attacking you; instead the mirror reflection of your eyeballs popping out is going to kill you.

10. Good morning, mirror! What luck are you bringing me today? Oh so everyone can do this with no problem by going to Facebook first rather than visiting the bathroom, do your thing and rinse your face, because looking at the mirror first thing in the morning will turn your whole day miserable; a bad luck it is. And whatever hidden fears you have or fears from last night’s bad dream will instantly convert you into a psychic foreseeing unpleasant sights. Do you want that experience or no? It is solely up to you.

11. Double the bounty. My Chinese grandparents have a huge mirror on a wall where the long dining table of 10 seaters and everything set on the table would reflect in the mirror. It is believed that a mirror reflecting a dining or kitchen will attract wealth and a continuous supply of food where the family will frequently dine together; at other events, doubling, enhancing yang chi in entertaining guests into your home. Indeed, there has to be a continuous supply of food for a big family and growing! Mirrors give and create energies in depth that is why it is great for a small space or in a store as it expands illusion. And then, there’s the – never have a stove face a mirror. It is also said that it will reflect back the energies that could cause a heat up discomfort in the room (fire reflecting fire like that of a fireplace). Never mind, it is not going to multiply whatever you’re cooking!

12. Feng Shui or Ba Gua mirrors. They bring good luck and drive away evil spirits, so the great Chinese emperors and ancestors say. These Chinese mirror beliefs and practices are for you to decide on how it will affect, change you or retain what you see and believe. Should it be a subject of debate, or merely understanding its techniques with your superstitious mind, or renouncing it of your practical realistic ways?

Feng Shui and Bagua


Briefly, what are Feng Shui and Ba Gua?


Feng Shui is a system of divination of the harmonic balance of Heaven and Earth with it surrounding five elements such as earth, water, wood, metal and fire to receiving positive qi (energy).

Divination or geomancy as I have tried to understand was once learned and applied by social classes (of sociologists, anthropologists, historians, political scientists, and other scientists and students of the science world, practiced in Africa and Europe in the Middle Ages and Renaissance times.



Bagua “Ba Gua” is ancient China’s principles held together through cosmic philosophy of how the world began constructed by the principles of reality into 8 diagrams or symbols. Bagua is also applied on Feng Shui through energies yin (bad energy is associated with death, cemetery, evil spirits (seen or unseen), dark shadows; yang (good energy is prosperity/success, good health, fortune and abundance to many other things). Yin and yang are opposites but corresponds to each other’s relative balance.

≈♥≈


Chinese Philosophy that changed the world to its understanding about mirrors:

Feng Shui – attracts wealth, protection, tranquility. One has to know the uses of feng shui elements in arranging mirrors at home.

Bagua mirror – an octagonal framed mirror used in feng shui. It is a charm to compel evil entering the home. That means, a bagua mirror is never to be used indoors and is positioned to protect you from bad energies…perhaps from your very annoying neighbour?


What about...

Mirrors in Funeral Homes.

Many funeral homes servicing to varied faiths take in consideration of putting up mirrors in their chapel, visitation rooms and family rooms. Where this place is the preparation for and pre-resting place of the deceased, while the families and visitors pay their respects in mourning and prayers. Mourning meditations and prayers are personal where the person is in deep thoughts or prayers being recited in a group with which is communicating with God, and the deceased. A mirror in the room is an instant destruction, pulling away the varied energies in the room in deep concentration where speaking to God is an act of solemnity. Thus a mirror in a funeral service room also puts presence in vain and self-consciousness when no one can appear to look their best in moments of grief.

      I love the beautiful reflective light mirrors bring into the home and have written about it here on HP. The more light the better for me. I am a light person. When a room in my home is dark and dull, with little or no light at all, I just add mirrors directly across from a window and the light reflects beautifully all around the room at different times of the day, adding a warmth to the home. Lovely hub.

      Very interesting. I've not heard of the concept before. Some of the superstitions discussed were also new. I guess I've been living under a rock. Mirrors are a rare item in my home. Not so much for any particular reason, just never really thought of having them around. Makes one reconsider. Great Hub!

      I thank you dear billybuc for reading it, *all smiles*. I have to understand about Feng Shui somehow because my daughter warned me once not to buy any feng shui mirror to add in my fascination on mirrors. She said she is scared of it. But actually, as feng shui rules go, it is for positive energies. Then I remember that we had seen a Filipino horror film about the "evil" side of feng shui. With research, it is then my first time to learn about the Bagua feng shui, too. It really confused me reading all those interlocking philosophies and symbols, but I find them both silly and amusing. Wish you the best, billybuc!

      Hello Rich! You're not alone. I was surprised too of the superstitions involving a mirror and oh, there are many more and Feng Shui is also applied in erecting buildings. It is amazing though how its philosophy can really be attractive and significant in the lives of people and to businesses to prosper.

      Mirrors are a good way catching light to welcome light in your home (as per Faith Reaper) and I totally agree with her. Who wants to be in the dark? Light is our way of seeing things more clearly, a means for hope and beauty.

      I have morning light coming through my grid glass window in the kitchen and I love its silhouette reflections of the objects on my table (a small kitchen table I have close to the window). I use this area too to capture the light and shade on my food photos :)

      Thank you Rick! Here's to bouncing some positive energies to you~ Keep being happy!

      well Good morning Lady Tess - oh my my you are the consummate hubber and what a presentation this is - philosophy, home design, great photography and an excellent outline to better living and well being not to mention a closer examination of your roots from the past and where you are, perhaps, going, in the future.

      You really know how to showcase your thoughts and ideas so well and you are a supreme master of communicating the written word.

      Yes it's currently lake erie time 7:44am with first cup of coffee, two well fed pussycats who are both outside and a big glowing ball of fire coming up and out over the lake - yes the glorious sun and I love watching the time lapse in real time of the sun rising from the east sky.

      You might have to recommend to me a reasonably priced digital camera, Lady Tess, to me. Although I have an old saying my eyes are the camera and in my time up here (the best 8 years of my life since my mum passed away) I have seen countless beautiful things everyday.

      And the way you put your hubs together and entertain and enlighten us - is also a beautiful thing indeed.

      And what better way to start the day then with J.S. Bach and Glenn Gould on piano .......

      Good morning epigramman...I'm tuning on Johann Sebastian Bach - Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 and read your message here with him playing for me, lol. What wonderful ways indeed to greet my morning-- a peanut butter-honey sandwich, epigramman smiling with his message and Bach's melodic orchestra in my ears!

      Thank you Mister Epi-man...the yang energies you have given me this morning. I awoke at 10:00 am, hahaha not as early as you. If I see a glowing ball of fire outside my window, why, I'd be up sooo early, but I don't see it. I see a parking lot, not very inspiring, lol! Oh Bach is making my head dance and forgetting about my sandwich, hehehe.

      ...Now to Glenn Gould's fingers on the piano. He is waking my spirit more. I feel like I'm running away from him, like being chased (with the piano keys), hahaha. He was a handsome guy in his early years.

      Thank you, my friend for your walk to this hub. For you as well, I've been wondering yeah how come you have not shown pictures of your beautiful lake Erie. Here is a website I can recommend for you for Point and Shoot Camera Review 2012 -- http://point-and-shoot-camera-review.toptenreviews...

      If you are not ready for one, don't worry epi, I can always picture in my head your poetry, your strolls on the lake with your pussycats and your description of the beauty right before your eyes, yet of course you and your first cup of coffee or a glass of red later in the day. *big SMILE*

      Here is for you...I love this song, but I have to give you this version...much clearer and smooth than the original. Enjoy, epi...walking in the sand! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FF5mtyPo-Wk

      well good golly Lady Tess you must be a mind reader because Colin owns a copy of this live gig (and it's quite amazing actually) on dvd and I borrowed a cd last week from the library featuring the lovely and talented Miss May who seems to be channelling the past but with one foot in the present as well. Jeff Beck has no peers on guitar. He is one of the best. And you should check out an amazing dvd called Live at Ronnie Scott's from a few years back.

      Just returned from a walk around the bay of my lake (now I know what it feels like to be the last man on earth; both pussycats are extending their nine lives by sleeping half of the day -lol)

      I am currently listening to the saddest sweetest most beautiful music you will ever hear: The Rachel's (a trio on viola, piano and cello) and a heart breaking album of musical impressionism called Music for Egon Schiele

      and a few other names to throw your way because you have such an open mind:

      Timi Yuro (a powerhouse voice)

      Willy de Ville (of Mink de Ville) (very seductive)

      Donovan (the Sutras album)

      George Winston (new age piano)

      Billie Holiday (she made every song uniquely her own)

      Warm wishes from lake erie time 1:00pm and time for a nice cuppa tea and a light lunch

      .......and yes my footprints were left in the sand and because no one is around and it's a low tide they will probably be there for some time.

      Thank you for the camera link. I appreciate that.

      Mister Epigramman, thank you for sharing your music and movie flair. Music is easy to catch up because I can just have a tab ready for Youtube. Movies will wait for a while, lol.

      For now, I am tied up on a priority and I will get back with this list as soon as I am free. Just peekin' if you've left me somethin' and ha, and you have indeed!

      Maybe I should fix myself some lunch coz I'm getting hungry and my dog Simba is not ready to do his business outside. He takes refuge underneath the table when he hears his collar.

      See ya later. I envy your walks in the sand.

      Hello Gypsy Rose Lee! I have quite stared at a mirror too long once thinking what might come out of it for me to see...but soon enough it gave me the jitters and then, I looked away.

      Thank you for reflecting through my Yin and Yang Effects of a Mirror hub. Loving your visit and sharing. Have a great day!

      i really enjoyed reading this.

      i just recently made an attempt to Feng Shui my small studio apartment.

      and in doing so, i thought it was cute to place my small/medium golden mirror at the head of my bed instead of using a headboard.

      i totally liked the new position of my bed and the energy that came along with the re-position. the mirror at the head of my bed was just a cute effect. something i'd never done before. it also made the corner that i placed my bed in appear larger.

      also, i like looking at myself when waking up :-) haven't had a bad day yet (knock on wood...lol)

      i thought after reading this i would have to re-arrange things all over again...i need all the positive energy i can get!! (know what i mean?)

      anyhow...thanks so much for sharing...this was very informative!

      ...WriteOn!!

      JustWrite7, glad you left me a comment to this mirror hub. As how you described the golden mirror at the head of your bed, it seems fine and cute to me just as you have thought that it was for a cute effect.

      Here's what I found though..."For a mirror above the bed, since you can see your profile, it would be better to follow `Feng Shui' taboo and where possible...not have it there."

      Just a thought from me...To have all the positive energy you can get, I guess it is by starting your day right and happy. Hum or whistle a happy tune in your shower, if you don't start it with a little thank you prayer (a gratitude to a new day). If little things cross your way that you are not happy about and will upset you, don't let that happen or, your whole day will be full of shit (pardon me). You know how one bad thing makes another bad thing happen right after the other, and it's gonna ruin your day because you have allowed your negative moods to devour you. A negative energy is created and I don't think that you'd like to pass it on to others especially at work.

      Smile always and feel great the moment you awake no matter which side of bed you are getting out. Cheers! Sending positive energies to you from Toronto! :)
