Everybody takes a look at the mirror at least once each day. But while arranging the interiors care needs to be taken regarding the position of the mirrors.
Mirrors reflect all kinds of energy and they should be placed in such a way that only positive energy remains in the house. Otherwise, the residents of the house may face setbacks.
The maximum amount of positive energy flows into the house from the east. If a mirror is placed facing east, this beneficial energy would be reflected away and lost. For this reason, fixing mirrors facing east should be avoided.
Meanwhile, north is considered the direction where Kubera, the God of wealth, resides. Suppose a mirror is kept facing north, the wealth coming into the house may be scattered away.
If mirrors are already present in the house facing east and north, they have to be covered with a cloth. The mirror can be used by removing the cloth but it has to be immediately covered again after the purpose is served.
Mirrors should also never be fixed facing the main door, the most important part of a house, as the positive energy coming in may be reflected away.
Meanwhile, the wealth of the residents would double if a mirror is placed opposite to the almirah where money is kept.
According to Vastu, the ideal position for the money chest in a house is the southeast corner and facing north. A mirror can be placed facing south so that it reflects the chest. Keeping a mirror near the locker would also prove beneficial.
On a wall, the mirror has to be 4-5 feet above the floor level. The shape of a mirror has to be rectangle or square, according to vastu. For best results, the mirror needs to have a frame. Another aspect regarding mirrors is that if scratch or dirt is present, they should never have a place in the house. Similarly, remove all cracked mirrors.
It has been noticed that in case two mirrors are kept facing each other, problems may arise between family members.
The southeast part of a house is considered to be the ‘Agnikone’ (fire angle). So it is not where a mirror should be placed.
If the bedrooms have mirrors, they have to be covered before the residents sleep. Other areas which are not ideal for mirrors are behind the cot and sofa.
Residents will be blessed with good health if the mirror is fixed on the east or north wall of the bathroom. In many houses, objects emitting positive energy like Laughing Buddha are kept. If mirrors are placed reflecting these articles, positive energy will fill the house.
At the same time, mirrors on verandas scatter away the positive energy and should be avoided.
According to vastu, the central portion of a house has to be an open area. If mirrors are present in this area, they will reduce bad effects.
Many houses have rooms set apart for children. But if mirrors are kept in these rooms, the children’s focus on studies may be diluted.
