One of the Most Debated and Confusing Issues in Feng Shui is Mirror Placement in the Bedroom
If you travel around the Internet looking for reality versus myth regarding mirrors in the bedroom, you’ll end up as confused as a cow on Astroturf.
There are three fundamental beliefs/myths/truths when it comes to mirrors in the bedroom
Why Is it Bad Luck to Have a Mirror in the bedroom?
(1) The Mirror Can Accidentally or on Purpose, Steal Your Soul When You Sleep At Night: This one stems from the belief that the soul leaves the body when you sleep, and with a mirror in the room, your soul may get confused and return to the mirror rather than the body. Some believe this isn’t an issue unless you’re elderly or fatally ill.
(2) A Mirror in the Bedroom Will Increase the Risk of Infidelity: This one stems from the belief that a mirror represents a third party in the relationship and becomes a tool of invitation for another person to come between a couple.
(3) A Mirror Where You Can See Your Reflection from the Bed is a No-No: The explanation being that should you wake up in the middle of the night, you’ll see your reflection and startle yourself or think there’s a ghost or an intruder in the room.

Is Any of This True? What Should You Do?
Unfortunately, there isn’t a straight answer for this. Why? Because one person’s truth is another person’s fiction.
So it boils down to your own belief system. If you’re passionate about Feng Shui, you’re apt to take these points seriously. If you find it interesting but not believable, then the only thing you’ll get from this article is a good laugh!
You Were Never Concerned about this, But Now You’re a Bit Freaked Out…
Well, if there’s a bit of superstition in your bones, and you already have mirrors in your room, you can cover them at night with a sheet or drapes. Also, apparently, they should have a frame around them, should not be beveled, and be one piece versus assembled squares of mirrors.
Hey, I know how you feel … one of my sons has a mirrored closet door in his room directly across from his bed! But I’m certainly not planning to cover those mirrors with drapes (although that could be a really cool decorating idea using 3D drapes).
Is There Anything Else I Should Think About When Decorating my Bedroom?
After reading this superstition about mirrors, you may prefer not knowing anything else about Feng Shui and furniture; like is your bed in the coffin position? Don’t read it.
