BA GUA MIRRORS
FENG SHUI TRIGRAM MIRRORS
The Ba Gua mirror is among the most well-known and
commonly used of all the Feng Shui
protection spells, remedies, or magical cures
for improper placements of houses -- placements that
may attract bad luck or lead to sorrow or illness in
the dwelling. Buildings placed near graveyards,
bridges, railroads, or overpasses, ot those at a
T-intersection or with a large tree bocking the
entrance are said to be at a disadvantage from "poison
arrows" of sha that damage those inside the dwelling
or place of business.
FOR PROTECTION AND GOOD LUCK
protect against and counteract bad luck caused by
arrows of sha, Feng Shui
practitioners invoke the eight trigrams or Ba Gua of
the Early Heaven, an ancient Chinese arrangement of eight binary
symbols comprised of solid or straight (yang) lines
and broken (yin) lines that represents the
unity of Heaven and Earth and the blessings that acrue from allignment with
natural virtue. The use of these mirrors is said to date back to
the 10th century CE, but the Ba Gua itself is far older than that,
for it consists of the same eight Trigrams found in the
I Ching or Chinese Book of Changes used in divination, which is
said to have originated more than 200 years BCE.
This Ba Gua set consists of two octagonal wood-framed mirrors.
The Ba Gua symbols
are painted in the traditional colours of
black, red, and mustard yellow. One mirror is concave (hollowed inward)
to absorb and nullify passively negative energy and the
other is convex (bowed outward)
to repel actively harmful energy.
Ba Gua mirrors are designed to be hung outdoors. The
trigram for Heaven called Chien (three solid lines)
goes at the top and the trigram for Earth called Kun
(three broken lines) goes at the bottom.
mirror is used on the side of the house facing
passively negative energies, such as a tree blocking
the the doorway, a mortuary, a police station, et
centera. It provides
magical protection because it will safely absorb and diffuse any problems
caused by obstructions, blocakges, and mild negativity.
convex mirror is used on the side of the building from
which the worst harm is expected -- the side of your
home that faces the house where the crazy hateful drug
dealing neighbors live, for example, or the side of your business
where a large skyscaper building owned by a pillaging
multinational corporation overshadows your smaller
magical protection consists of reversing or returning back any harmful
"poisons arrows" that are sent your way.
If your property is generally well situated and you have no bad
neighbors, then you
need only place the convex Ba Gua Mirror over your front door
and the concave one over your back
door to repel any chance or passing bad luck, evil
people, or wandering spirits of negativity that could
bring sickness, accidents, or mental depression to
your household or place of business.
