Q: I was given my favourite grandmother’s old oval mirror. It has some fancy carvings along the edge of the glass and some of the silver has been scraped on the back. Can I use this mirror for feng shui cures?
A: I love the fact that you have a mirror from your grandmother! Anytime you accept a used item from anyone, be sure that YOU LOVE THE ITEM, and second, that the item comes from a person you respect and trust. Don’t ever accept any guilt ridden items into your house!
Go ahead and display this mirror with love, admiration and respect from your favourite grandmother.
First and foremost, it is always best to bring great energy and great karma into a house. As the mirror is a bit imperfect (because of the scrapes on the back) it may not be able to ‘cure’ your problem. I’m not sure what you are trying to ‘cure’ but, if you are not getting the results you desire, please call me directly. There may be other options for you to explore.
Contemplate the placement of any mirror. A reflection of the back of a staircase or a dead corner will not be inspirational. A mirror needs to reflect something pleasant; bring the light in from the outside, accent a display, or make the room appear to be larger than it is.
