Ancient Chinese philosophy of feng shui in the lasttime is increasingly being popularized far beyond its homeland. And in our country many modern people try to equip their living and office premises in accordance with its basic laws. We are trying to attract luck and prosperity, placing in the house statuettes of frogs, money trees, aquariums with a certain number of fish and so on. We try to visualize our desires by making special maps, sorting out rubbish rubbings, freeing up space for free circulation of energy flows, correctly place furniture and mirrors to create harmony around ourselves. We can say that we are doing everything to bring missing elements to our lives for harmony and happiness, hoping that it is feng shui that will help in this. And indeed, many people happily notice positive changes in their own destiny, but do not forget that simply moving the cabinet from one corner to another or changing a small mirror to the one in which you will be reflected in full growth, count on much not worth it. Chinese philosophy is permeated with the main idea: it is not so much an external transformation of the living space that is important, but rather an internal rethinking of oneself, getting rid of the negative and so on. You need to establish order not only in an apartment or a house, but also in the head. In an effort to follow Feng Shui in everything, we, as a result of our own ignorance of the culture or philosophy of another people's people, can make serious mistakes. Therefore, any action must be supported by knowledge, and not stupidly to buy in stores all kinds of talismans. After all, sometimes we do not even suspect how dangerous these Chinese symbols can be to us and others. About one such talisman, or rather about how to properly use it, and will be discussed in this article.
What does the bagua mirror look like?
So, what is a mirror-protection bagua? To begin with, we will understand with the incomprehensible for a simple philistine who is not particularly versed in the philosophy of Feng Shui, in a word. It consists of two concepts: ba means eight, and gua is a trigram (a symbol of three lines). In practice, this ancient Chinese mascot is an octagon, the sectors of which embody all the basic aspects of human existence and the world as a whole. Since each of them has its own color, side of the world, a natural element and a number, the bagua is usually considered a kind of map or compass for the organization of the inner world of man and space around. By activating by means of a number of ways each zone of this symbol of feng shui, we can positively influence those or other components of our life. Therefore, the Bagua mirror is nothing more than an octahedron with trigrams on each sector and a small circular mirror in the center. And it can be executed in one of three variants: flat, concave or convex. In the first case, it is believed that this type of surface reflects any energy, in the second - absorbs it, and in the third - spreads around. There is one more interpretation of the last two types of mirror surface in the feng shui talisman. The concave center, if you direct it to the object of evil, as it turns it upside down, depriving the force. A convex surface attracts negative energy, absorbs itself and, with the help of trigrams, prevents it from breaking out, thus defeating evil hostile power. It would seem that everything is simple! Urgently go to a specialized store with esoteric Chinese talismans, buy a Bagua mirror of all three kinds and quickly hang out over the apartment. Everything, we are provided with super-protection against any negativity, enemies can envy as much as necessary, build intrigues and in every possible way try to spoil life, but they will not succeed. This is where the main mistake and great danger lies! Feng Shui - science is very ambiguous, it contains a lot of "pitfalls". It's not for nothing that many people who seem to adhere to all its basic principles do not get the desired result. "It does not work, it's all nonsense!" They say and are mistaken. It is likely, for a number of reasons, the main wisdom of Feng Shui simply turns out to be beyond the surface perception of it by man. So with the Chinese amulets, among which there are also those who are able not only to protect, but also to destroy. In fact, an octagon with a mirror in the center and trigrams is a very strong talisman. Wrong use of it, according to the Chinese, is able to spoil the owner's karma. It is recommended to be used only in extreme cases, if there is no other way to protect yourself from the external negativity.
How correctly to use the bagua protection?
To protect the amulet with a mirror in the center and trigramsserved you well, became a reliable barrier to the negative energy from the outside and did not destroy the positive flows around, it is necessary to be able to place it correctly. To do this, there are a number of recommendations that you will have to follow scrupulously, otherwise this talisman will bring significant harm instead of serving as a defense. It is also important to take into account that protecting from external evil can only be based on Bagua yin, since it is he who is able to reflect negative energy. But it should be noted that this talisman was made in accordance with the Celestial order, that is, the ideal that existed before the creation of the universe and beyond its borders. This means that it belongs to the world of the dead, therefore it has tremendous power. To distinguish the mirror of the bagua yin is quite simple - you just need to look at the location of the trigrams: qian (sky) should be in the south, and kun (earth) - in the north. The danger of this talisman is that it does not distinguish between good and evil energy, and both of its forms are perceived by it as a threat that is instantly destroyed. Therefore, the first rule about how to use this ancient Chinese amulet, says: a person under no circumstances should not look in a Bagua mirror. This can lead to sad consequences (quarrels, illnesses, injuries, and so on). Since it is simply impossible to place the talisman of the world of the dead among the living, in no case should you neglect the second rule: you can not hang such a guard in the room where people are. It does not matter that they do not live permanently, but only work, make purchases, induce beauty, that is, they are temporary. Mirror Bagua yin can be installed only outside these objects. Otherwise, you run the risk of incurring a lot of negativity on yourself and your environment. Conflicts, quarrels, constant clarification of relations and other unpleasant situations can begin. A completely safe family will suddenly be threatened with divorce, and the firm may well be comprehended by ruin and bankruptcy. The third rule says the following: it is impossible to direct this talisman of feng shui to the entrance doors of neighboring apartments, to houses and similar objects in front of them. You can hurt people who absolutely do not want you to be evil and just ended up on the line of action of the mirror. Remember that the damage will be repaid a hundredfold. Therefore, it is better to place such an amulet in order to protect dangerous places from dangerous energy: highways, sharp corners of buildings and so on. This is what Feng Shui is talking about: the talismans of the dead must be sent to destroy the evil that comes from inanimate objects. And to save from the human negativity can more secure Chinese amulet - a turtle. Another significant point is that all these rules apply only to the true Bagua mirror, that is, the octagon with a reflecting surface in the center and with trigrams around the perimeter. After all, it is often confused with ordinary mirrors, made in the form of a similar polyhedron, but without the corresponding symbolism. Such items are very popular in China, but they do not have the power of the described amulet. Simple octagonal mirrors are also considered talismans and work perfectly if they are in apartments, houses and offices. They have less power, but they do not know how to destroy either. It is important to know the basic rules for their placement in this case. You can not hang a mirror above the bed, in front of the entrance to the dwelling or opposite the toilet. This will help ensure that flows of good energy can not spread throughout the room and leave it immediately. Since this Feng Shui talisman is capable of doubling what is reflected in it, then try to make it good, positive things. In the corridor, you must install only large mirrors, where you will see yourself in full growth. The octagonal amulet is able to restore balance in an apartment, the layout of which excludes the presence of one of the bagua zones. It is known that the Chinese try to avoid sharp corners in the interior of the dwelling. But it is impossible to imagine completely rounded edges with all furniture without exception. Therefore, the octagon reflector can take on the "sharp" energy, if properly placed. Try to wipe the reflecting surfaces as often as possible, as if you are cleaning them from the negative. Take into account one more important point: any mirror should be whole, without cracks and chips. Immediately throw away the broken ones, changing them to new ones. It is believed that in the mirror there lives part of the soul of a person, which is reflected in it. Therefore, breaking it means harming yourself. This is what Feng Shui tells us. But if there is any such trouble, use the following advice, which is prompted by ancient Chinese wisdom itself. Gently collect all the fragments and carefully rinse them under a stream of running water. So you wash your inner reflection from the mirror. Now the broken pieces can simply be thrown away and not thinking about anything bad. As you can see, not everything is so simple. Therefore, before you hang around the house a variety of Chinese figurines and amulets, do not be too lazy to learn from reliable sources what exactly they designate and how to use them correctly. After all, any phenomenon, thing, object and even thought, there are always two sides - positive and negative. And often we use intuition to catch exactly the one that we need. But no one is immune to mistakes, especially when immersed in someone else's philosophy and culture. Therefore, improve your knowledge, and then any talismans will bring you only good luck!
