What is a Bagua mirror? Mirror Bagua in Feng Shui
All people want to get certain blessings, avoid negative influences on their lives, dream of a prosperous fate. In most cases, all the bonuses of success, independence are extracted by work, purposeful efforts and calm overcoming difficulties. But there are situations when it seems that nothing develops, the result is retired indefinitely, and then many people remember talismans. The Chinese doctrine of feng shui and all its symbolism became very popular. The enigmatic mirror of Bagua promises protection and patronage to the owners, but at the same time, with the wrong location - great trouble.
What is a Bagua mirror?
In the system of feng shui there are certain tools, using which, in the living space of a person, creative forces are attracted. One of them is Bagua. The mirror placed in the center of the octagonal frame is an addition, with its characteristics, to the main purpose of the instrument. Bagua is an octahedron, on each side of which are symbols of the Book of Changes.
Each of the eight trigrams denotes a certain side of life, and collectively consolidates the material objects, feelings, emotions, energies into a single whole. Eight trigrams, in turn, are divided into two parts - Yin and Yang. United together symbolize harmony, the balance of the forces of nature and life. In the center of the octagon is a mirror. It can be of three types: flat, convex, concave. The center of the Bagua symbol - the mirror carries a powerful energy, but does not bind to any of the eight trigrams and is not a unifying nucleus.
Types of mascot
There are two kinds of Bagua:
- Mirror "Celestial Bagua" is a symbol of the ideal world that existed before the creation of the universe. The trigrams on its wings refer to the yin energy. Is a powerful amulet that hangs on the outside of the house (windows, doors), it is believed that the amulet can reflect the negative energy of Sha.
- "The Ambassadorial Bagua" - has the nature of the nature of the arrangement of symbols. Used inside the house to arrange a home, office and any room.
The differences between the two types of talisman are not in the tracing of symbols, but in their placement. In the Ying inscription, the trigrams "kun" and "qian" are located in the southeast. Ingo Trigram placement is north-west. Trigram "kun" - indicates the place of the hostess of the hearth, and "qian" - the place of the owner of the house.
Mirror like a hub
In addition to the difference in the symbolism of trigrams, the amulets differ in the central part of the Bagua symbol:
- Mirror with a flat surface.
- With a concave surface.
- A convex surface.
From what the optical effect will be given by the talisman, its influence on the life of a particular person and on the space in which it is necessary to live depends.
Properties of mirrors
Each of the three optical solutions mirrors has certain functions:
- Flat The Bagua mirror reflects and returns (to the space, to the concrete person, the source) any kind of energy.
- Convex the mirror takes on the negative energy and dissipates it in space, thus depriving it of its strength (passive resistance). There is another explanation of the properties: negative energy, concentrates in the mirror and stays there forever - trigrams do not allow it to break out and make trouble.
- Concave the Bagua mirror concentrates the negative energy, turning its flow into a sharp, thin ray, which destroys everything it directs - this is one of the options for interpreting the action. There is another explanation of how such a mirror works: negative energy caught by a concave reflecting surface, turns over, dissipates the focus and evil loses its power.
It seems that all three variants of the amulet would be useful, but there are rules on which to find a place and properly place Bagua. A mirror with any optical property is almost a weapon, and with frivolous handling brings trouble to the heady owner.
Feng Shui Accommodation Rules
According to Bagua's classification, a mirror with a concave surface with Yin (Celestial) inscription of trigrams is hung only on the outer sides of the house, windows, doors. In such a location there is a certain danger: one should not allow a mirror to mirror neighboring windows or a door. Even if the neighbors do not like them very much and want to "teach them a lesson," one should not rush with sharp movements-everything will return, according to the "boomerang law," and with a triple force will strike at the one who decided on the destructive effect. With an irresistible desire to better manage a mirror with a flat surface.
The Jano (Poslebesne) mirror Bagua can be hung in the house, if no other ways to attract positive energy do not work. Such situations almost never happen, because the art of organizing the space of feng shui has a hundred instruments, except Bagua. In the specialist's arsenal there are such combinations of materials that neutralize any negative manifestations, can redirect the flow of energies or transform them into positive ones.
According to the rules of feng shui, the Bagua mirror is the strongest tool that must be used with great care, therefore, experts do not recommend it to be placed in residential spaces. There are many ways to improve the energy without attracting the "heavy artillery" of Bagua, which, with the slightest change in the angle of inclination of the surface, will immediately change the positive effect on the negative.
For a Bagua symbol, a mirror is not a required attribute. Soft effect of the amulet will bring an octagonal frame with trigrams, in the center of which an animal image is inserted. This option will help to harmonize the energy inside the house. They are placed on supports or suspended in a neutral space above their heads.
Choosing an amulet, it is worth paying attention to the game of emotions on the symbolic image of an animal - an evil expression will "scare away" negative energy, neutralize its influence. Animals with good emotions will invite positive feelings into the house, harmonious relationships in the family.
One of the common variants of the amulet, when in the central part of Bagua the mirror is replaced by the symbol of the combination of Yin-Yan. In this case, it is necessary to follow the correct arrangement of the applied harmony symbol, if the figure is incorrect, the amulet will lose its properties and will be a simple accessory in the interior.
Specialists in Feng Shui, placing objects in the house, always warn their customers that they can not look into the Bagua mirror in any case. This leads to negative consequences for the person - energy flows into the mirror, dissipates and then it is necessary to restore it for a long time. And if the surface is not even, then at all it is possible to call up a disease, a major quarrel and other troubles.
Do not take a spontaneous decision and get the first caught mirror Bagua. Photos of various versions of the amulet are present in most catalogs of shops with oriental goods. So you can consider in detail the symbols, estimate the size and understand which option will suit your home.
