Mirrors are often used as a Feng Shui cure. They’re a great way to lighten and brighten a room, reflect beautiful things, and they also bring in the water element. I use them often in both my residential consultations and commercial spaces.
Recently though I have had my “Feng Shui sensors” on high as I’m noticing mirrors used for decorative purposes, yet, reflecting items that do not represent good Feng Shui.
Here’s an example; Last month I was contacted by a local business owner to help them with their space. I walked in and was blown away. They had a rather elaborate design in the front foyer complete with a large decorative mirror. It was really a spectacular mirror with a mosaic design on the top, just beautiful. However, the Feng Shui side of me was struggling. Upon walking in you’d see the mirror and then the reflection of the wastebasket directly in front of it!!! They were literally mirroring and expanding garbage! It’s no wonder they were going through difficult times. They reached out as they were struggling to find the right clients. People would schedule initial appointments but would not follow through and continue the work. I won’t deny that they spent time and money creating a beautiful display to “wow” people as they walked in. Unfortunately, everyone including me, walked in and focused on the garbage can (that was filled to the brim by the way).
It is important to take a look at what is being reflected in each mirror in your space. Take the time to sit in each place a potential client might sit. Notice what their view would be. Then ask yourself if you can improve it. A floral arrangement, plant or nice piece of artwork would be a lovely reflection. If you can’t add to the space, consider rearranging the layout.
