This is a beautiful octagonal Concave Pakua crafted from peach wood. In its center is a mirror that curves inward (concave) and is surrounded by the Early Heaven Pakua with the Heaven (Chien or Qian) Trigram in the higher part and the Earth (Kun) Trigram in the lower part. The arrangement of the trigrams is symmetrical by forming exact contrary pairs, symbolizing the opposite forces of Yin and Yang and representing an ideal state when everything is in balance. The back is stamped in red with a protective Taoist talisman and the four celestial guardians. The Pakua mirror protects and adjusts negative Chi directed at the house from outside forces.
Peachwood is believed to be effective in driving away evil spirits and suppressing negative influences. It is therefore used extensively to make protective amulets and weapons, especially the famed Seven Star Sword for Taoist exorcism. It is thus the most suitable wood for constructing Feng Shui deflectors such as the Pakua mirrors.
The Pakua Mirror is a traditional Feng Shui cure commonly used for protection against the most malignant type of energies – the killing energy or Shar Chi generated from ‘poison arrows’ directed to your house, shop, or building. Poison arrows can manifest in many forms: offending poles, lamp posts, trees, a large building, edges of the building, a road headed towards you, T-Junctions, escalators and other imposing structures, infrastructures, or landscape in front of your house or workplace’s main door, the ‘chi’ entry point. At its best, this kind of killing Chi could result in constant arguments, depression, and minor misfortunes, and at its worst brings severe sickness, mishaps, accidents, and even death in the household if it is not promptly dealt with. Pakuas could also repel evil spirits and people with bad intentions towards you.
A Concave Pakua is used to absorb Sha Chi and prevent it from entering the house. It neutralizes negative energies passively rather than reflecting the energies back, as is the case with Convex mirrors. In situations where hanging a Pakua may inadvertently cause harm to your neighbors or surroundings, a Concave Pakua is recommended over a Convex Pakua. While the Convex Pakua is more powerful, a Concave Pakua will usually be sufficient to do the job and not create bad karma for you.
Hang the Peach Wood Concave Early Heaven Pakua Mirror above your house entrance or porch facing the poison arrow. Always keep in mind that Pakuas can only be placed outdoor and should NEVER be hung indoors or it will do great harm.
