This is a special Convex Bagua Mirror where the usual eight trigrams surrounding it are being replaced with the rings seen in a Luo Pan. It is nonetheless as potent and powerful as the traditional Bagua mirror and is pretty common nowadays.
The Bagua 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. Bagua could also repel evil spirits and people with bad intentions towards you.
A Convex Bagua is used to deflect and reflect all harmful chi away. While we want to protect our homes, please be aware that this could inadvertently harm your neighbors and surroundings. For example, if you place a Convex Bagua to deflect the Shar Chi coming from an imposing tree, the tree will not grow well and will even die! Use the Convex Bagua only if the Shar Chi is too strong or you are very sure that by placing a Convex Bagua you will not harm others because you do not want to create bad karma for yourself.
Hang it above the door facing the poison arrow pointing to you. If you have a porch, you could put it on top of the porch. REMEMBER that Baguas can only be placed outdoor. It SHOULD NEVER be hung indoors or it will do great harm.
