Feng Shui Q & A: Mirrors Facing Windows

(K & Co)

A reader asked an awesome feng shui question about bedroom mirrors: “One of the walls in my bedroom is pretty much entirely a window. Lots of lovely light comes in, but I have to put my largest mirror directly across the room from it. Is this okay if the bed is between the wall with the dresser and the “window wall”?”

My answer

Short answer: this is totally fine IF what is outside the window is pleasant (ie, not a tree branch precariously pointing toward your window, etc) and if you have curtains sufficient to not be blasted with amplified sunlight earlier than you’d prefer to wake up!

Mirrors facing beds are usually not great because of the startling nature of waking up to your reflection, along with other psychological and energetic implications of having a mirror directly face you as you sleep.  But beside you, I don’t see a huge problem. 

Again, this is a general answer but I think it could give you the guidelines t omake a decision that works for you!

im renting a room currently. Opposite house room there is a big mirror facing my window. Am experiencing a string of bad luck. Is it actually that mirror is causing me this ?

I don’t believe in luck, per say, but you are clearly bothered by the window / mirror combo so you should change it! What does the mirror reflect? Put something stable and energizing in that space and see what happens! xxx

In this modern world, my wall is entirely made of glass, is this considered a window? Is it ok to put a mirror facing it with the dining tables and living room sofas in between? When you say facing the window, does it mean the mirror is directly facing it? (Both the mirror and window is in parallel?).

That is extremely cool, as long as what is outside the window is something you want to see and the mirror is doubling something you want more of!

I haven’t got much room in my bedroom as enter in the room left and right walls are plain to be able to put bed and dresser table but the other walls has double wardrobe across all next wall to left and a window across next wall to left , I haven’t got room to fit my bed next to dresser table along right wall so is it ok to have my dresser table ,which has a mirror, on left wall facing window? I’m a bit superstition bout it

I just moved to an apartment and the bedroom closet has mirrored doors it’s a wall three mirrors, It’s facing the window but there’s a tree , I close one side so I won’t get to see me on the mirror when I’m sleeping. I would like to know if I put curtains to cover the mirrors would help. I’ve heard it’s bad especially if your married it brings a third person in the relationship?

that’s just superstition, do what feels best but too muh mirrored energy can disrupt sleep in my experience.
