Mirror above Bed
How about mirrors in bedroom? Is it good to put a big round mirror above my bed?
One best test to see if a mirror is located in a good or bad location is by sitting on the bed. If you can see your profile in the mirror either lying down or simply setting on the bed, this is considered no good under Feng Shui. The rationale is because, it was felt that when we sleep, our souls leave our body and when it sees itself in a mirror, it will get a `shock'. This view is widely held although some authors may interpret this differently but still hold on to this concept.
In my website, I mentioned that, if you do not have a problem and can sleep peacefully with a mirror facing you, then, go ahead but if you have restless sleeps, perhaps, you may want to look at removing the mirror or avoid placing one. But if you were to ask me, I still follow the above `practise' of not having mirrors facing our bed.
For a mirror above the bed, since you can see your profile, it would be better to follow `Feng Shui' taboo and where possible.. not have it there.
I am not sure if anyone has done a scientific survey on this FS taboo. If there is, we can then really understand if what we are practising now is `correct'.
