You may have read references on this blog to a Feng Shui Ba Gua Mirror. These octagon mirrors, designed to represent the Feng Shui Ba Gua, are used to diffuse strong energy, often when that energy is directed toward your business, home or apartment.
If you have a neighbor who is noisy, nosy, or simply seems to send negative energy toward your home, you can diffuse that energy by placing a Ba Gua mirror above the outside of your front door, pointed toward their home. If the neighbor is to your right or left, hang the mirror on that side of your house.
When the Neighbor's Home is the Problem
Sometimes, it's not your neighbors themselves who are the problem, but some element of their home. For instance, if the house across the street from you has a steep roof, with the roofline pointed directly at your home, this can create negative energy entering your home. Again, a Feng Shui Ba Gua mirror will deflect and diffuse the energy so it does not cause ill effects on your home's inhabitants.
Feng Shui Ba Gua Mirrors: A Friendly Solution
Don't worry -- you are not deflecting all that negative energy back to your neighbors with the Ba Gua mirror. Instead, you are simply diffusing and dispersing it so it won't affect anyone.
You may even find that a Feng Shui Ba Gua mirror improves your relationship with your neighbors, which always makes life more enjoyable for everyone. Block party, anyone?
