  • Mirrors have been used in China for centuries to "reflect negativity" from the home and in Feng Shui Practices. By placing Bagua Mirrors in strategic places around the home negativity & evil are meant to be reflected away from the home. You would have to do some research, or contact a Feng Shui Master to really learn how all that works and where they go.

  • Well I've heard of them being placed opposite a window(facing the window) as a means to help increase the lighting in the home by reflecting that which is coming in. It also tends to give the room an appearance of being larger and open, so it can be good according to those aspects of it.

  • whaaaaaaaat? Evil? Facing mirrors out? WOw.......
    Isn't this the 21st Century?I thought that kind of "keeping evil out" and all that went away after they decided it might not be too realistic to burn witches at the stake in Salem,Massachusetts? I you really think you need to "cleanse a house" --other than maybe mopping the floors and cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms ? LOL.
