With appropriate arrangement they can change the vitality stream inside a room and all things considered can ‘fix’ the space. This is the reason mirrors are regularly known as the ‘Anti-inflamatory medicine’ of Feng Shui.
The antiquated Chinese craft of Feng Shui is more than 3000 years of age and is the study of adjusting energies inside a space to advance wellbeing and favorable luck and diminish cynicism and misfortune. The Chinese accept that the earth is alive and makes energies that can be saddled and upgraded to make an equalization inside a space that support prosperity.
Set very forth plainly, the craft of Feng Shui includes the situating of things inside the home or workspace to improve a positive parity of chi (vitality stream). It mulls over the state of the thing, the shading and the situation inside the space, all of which identify with the five Feng Shui components of earth, wood, fire, metal or water. Together they speak to various parts of human health, appeared in the Feng Shui Bagua or guide:

Speaking to the component of water, mirrors are emblematic of mental self view and clearness of brain.

There are three classifications of mirrors inside Feng Shui:
1. Normal mirrors:
Generally characterized by their shape and their edge, mirrors can consolidate components for example the glass implies that they are basically water, anyway they may have a wood or metal casing. This is fine as acceptable Feng Shui is about the equalization of energies and a lot of one specific sort can in certainty have negative impacts.
As far as their shape:
Square and square shape = Balance
Octagonal = Power
Round = Unity
2. Sunken mirrors:
Are for the most part utilized outside in Feng Shui. They produce a topsy turvy, dense reflection that attracts vitality.
3. Curved mirrors:
Again primarily utilized outside, these mirrors have defensive characteristics and are utilized as an attentive gaze. They redirect and push away negative vitality.
A case of mirrors being utilized to advance Wealth and Abundance is to situate a round mirror, with a gold leaf outline in the South East of your home or office space (known as the cash region).

The water component of the mirror sustains the wood component of the South East space and the metallic shading (speaking to metal and fire) assists with making a solid equalization.
Mirrors can likewise be utilized as a ‘solution’ for an adversely stimulated space. For instance, if there is a chimney on the East mass of a room, this can make negative chi as the fire component can consume the wood of the eastern territory. Instead of moving the chimney so as to keep up positive chi, an a lot less difficult arrangement is to include a mirror over the chimney. This gets the component of water that assists with hosing down the fire and simultaneously feeds the wood.
Mirrors make a solid vitality and thusly a hive of movement; this obviously can have negative impacts just as positive.

It is consequently not perfect to have reflects in your room, obviously because of their useful properties this is pretty much inconceivable. It is accordingly prescribed that mirrors are concealed around evening time to help diminish this movement.
