Mirrors

The picture on the right for your entryway is CORRECT. ┬áThe reason it is not recommended to have a mirror facing the front door is because the mirror pushes away all the good feng shui energy that is about to enter the house. One main function of a mirror is to reflect energy back. This is why we are able to see ourselves in the mirror. In feng shui, most energy, especially from guests and delivery folks etc., comes through the front door, similar to a human face absorbing nutrition through the mouth. This is why the front door is often called “the mouth of Chi.” To optimize this space, do not place a mirror facing the front door.
