SHOULD YOU USE A BA GUA MIRROR INSIDE YOUR HOME OR OFFICE?
This is a small extract taken from our July 2002 monthly newsletter, if you would like to subscribe free of charge click here.
You would be amazed at the amount of consultations that we have been to and found the occupants have either been told by a practitioner or read a book advising to place a Ba Gua mirror inside their home to make their bathroom disappear or some similar nonsense, what a load of codswallop. I cannot stress this enough, NEVER use a Ba Gua inside a home or office.
I don’t care who has told you and how they have justified it. You never ever use them indoors. There are circumstances that you can use them, they are special ones that you should not find on any website, we sell them but only to trained Practitioners.
The ones that we sell to the public are before heaven Ba Gua (see below) these can only be used outdoors, they show the Trigram with three un-broken lines at the top and they come with a hook so you cannot go wrong in placement. Be careful when buying them from other shops as we have seen the arrangement completely wrong and this can be dangerous.
The one you use inside is after-heaven Ba Gua, the arrangement of the Trigrams are completely different and can only be used by a trained practitioner.

WHEN SHOULD I USE A BA GUA (PA KUA)?
As I said if you already have one make sure the three solid lines are at the top. They are used to ward off sharp or pointing objects such as traffic, lampposts, objects pointing towards your home, roadway pointing at your home, corners of other houses pointing at you or anything that you feel is threatening.
Generally they are placed above or close to your front door or facing side of your home (if you would like more details on facing directions please visit this link http://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/advice/property.html), they can be hidden behind an object if you do not fancy explaining to neighbours or friends what it is. You should not have more than two; the front and back are normal.
The Ba Gua is extremely powerful and should be used with care and also respect for others, as when you hang one they deflect the bad energy onto the offending object. I have read books and websites that sell these recommending that they place them to deflect bad energy towards a bad neighbour, remember when you do this you make their situation twice as bad.
Michael recently carried out a consultation for a Chinese restaurant in Kent and the Ba Gua across the road from one of their Chinese competitors was about 5 feet in size, now that is big, the average size is 4-6 inches. In Asia there are many tactics used to compete with other businesses, these can be a Ba Gua mirror with pointing arrows on it or a cannon, this will give very bad energy to the company it is pointing at.
As with all our products they are cleansed from negative energy and empowered with positive energy, this is especially important with a Ba Gua mirror, for more details on purchasing one please visit this link.
