Mirrors are considered the ‘aspirin’ of Feng Shui since they can ‘cure’ a laundry list of whatever ails you. So I’m delighted to participate in ‘Compliment Your Mirror Day.’ In fact, few Feng Shui activators promise as much energetic movement as does the mirror. So here are some mirror ‘do’s’ to help you reflect on how important these decorating resources can be. Do reflect your dining area, as this is believed to ‘double’ the abundance in a room known to be associated with profusion. In fact, Feng Shui believes the dining room to be the perfect location for mirrors because that room represents the family’s wealth. Do reflect beautiful views as well. If any of your rooms have a view of trees, water or a beautiful garden, ‘double’ that energy while bringing all that beauty inside the house. Of course, one of the oldest interior decoration tips shares that using mirrors can actually open up a space, especially if that space is a long hallway or a small room. Leaning a mirror up against a wall can visually open up the room, while hanging one in a long hallway will slow down ‘whooshing’ Chi and open that space up as well. So today, whenever you pass any mirrors in your living space, take a long look in it and tell yourself how wonderful you are before telling your mirror the exact same thing. They enjoy the compliment as much as you do!
