A reader asked the question: ” You have said that mirrors in the bedroom are bad and my bedroom closets are mirrored. Why is it bad if a mirror faces my bed?”
Mirrors are powerful. Lets start with that fact. Mirrors double everything they see, they add tremendous amounts of energy to a room and they direct the way that energy and attention flows through a space.
Now, here’s the thing about bedrooms: they are meant primarily for sleep and rejuvenation. If you start propping mirrors up and hanging them around your bedroom, you run into tricky territories. A mirror over a bed can repel people from the bed. A mirror facing the bed can be shocking when you first wake up, it can reflect just pieces of a bed which fragments your bed symbolically, it can create a ton of energy that makes it difficult to sleep, and on and on. There are theories that mirrors break up your “dream body” in a bedroom. Some people say they cause headaches. But primarily and overall they are problematic. There are exceptions to every rule, but in general… its a tough one!
Hope that helps!!! xoxo Dana
