Dear Diva Rebecca,
My friend recently came to visit me in New York and he noticed all of the clutter underneath my bed. You need every inch of space you can find in a small New York City apartment. He told me that I need to clear everything out from underneath my bed and place a good sized mirror face up under the bed. He said this this will reflect my good feelings and well being back onto me while I sleep, and it may help in my love life. Is there any truth to this?

Scientific truth? No. There is no evidence that can be scientifically gathered to support such a statement.
What your friend has told you is a variation of a Feng Shui belief. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese belief system that uses certain objects and strategic placement to enhance the quality of the believer's life. Feng Shui has recently made quite a come back in the Western world. There are plenty of people who swear by its powers.
I have not heard of using a mirror to reflect good feelings back onto you while you sleep. I have heard that people will place a mirror face up underneath their bed to help battle insomnia. The reasoning is that the mirror will draw the bed down towards the mirror and allow the insomniac to be pulled into sleep. Another variation of the mirror under the bed is to place it face down to protect against evil spirits while you sleep.
A major point in Feng Shui is to clear out the clutter in your life by clearing our the clutter in your house. That is what may have prompted your friend to tell you to clear out the mess under your bed. In Feng Shui, the extra clutter underneath your bed could have a negative impact on your life. For example, if you clean it out it will allow you to have more room in your life...perhaps enough room for a certain new love interest.
In the end I think that the power of belief can have the best results. Feng Shui is a belief system, just like superstition, like religion and so on. But if you do something like place a mirror under your bed and believe it will make your love life sizzle, then you will wake up feeling a little sassier than usual. If you think it is going to happen, you can make it happen. Mind over matter.
Not everyone will agree with me, everyone has their own opinion.|
