Mirrors as portals

For centuries, people have believed that mirrors are portals into the spirit world, or portals through which a spirit can enter our world. But is it really possible?

Ancient civilizations believed that water could be used for the same purpose, and that reflections in the water were messages from another world, and ripples in the water portrayed reflections of the past or future.

Since the mirror was invented, it has been viewed as a magical and mysterious tool to receive messages from the other side or from spirit guides.

In our mainstream society, many people are still superstitious about mirrors, but mirrors have lost the magical and mysterious properties that they once had.

Those that still believe use mirrors for scrying and contacting the other side. This is done to foresee events and receive communication and insight. Proper rituals are said to be done prior to of course. Those that do not know what they are doing are warned to stay away from such things. Proper protection and ritual is the only way to prevent against negative spirits.

In many cultures, mirrors are covered when someone passes away in the home...this prevents the spirit from being trapped in the mirror. It is also believed that if you look into the mirror after the death, that the recently dead's spirit will trap your soul in the mirror.

With all these ideas and beliefs regarding mirrors and the dangers, its hard to take any of them seriously. But we've all had that feeling, that we saw "something" just on the corner of our sight in the mirror. Or that maybe, our reflection moved for just a second, when we didn't. Does anyone have any opinions on mirrors and their link to the spirit realm, or am I the only one?

Halloween is Right around the corner.. .

Date: 5/17/2010 5:45:00 PM  From Authorid: 28767    This was a good article. I used to live in this apartment and in my bathroom there was a portal or a vortex and I would always feel creeped out by it. I was told in the psychic column by someone that it was an energy vortex and beings were traveling through it. I believe them still to this day. How can I disprove the the fact of what I felt. It was in front of the huge mirror also. So I believe in that.

Date: 5/18/2010 8:49:00 AM  From Authorid: 11097    This is very interesting and thank you for posting about such a mysterious topic. I believe there is something... strange about mirrors. I have a dresser with a built in mirror that reflects back my entire room which sometimes makes me nervous. I used to cover it with pictures but I decided to take them down. I have seen two things in a mirror. I believe I posted about one experience on your recent post about Bloody Mary with the boy with no face. The second thing I seen in the mirror was a shadow about the size of the doorway. I was walking downstairs and the mirror is on the wall opposite the stairs; I seen the room behind me and I seen a black shadow walk past the hallway entrance. I turned around and walked right back upstairs... mirrors kinda scare me. I also had a dream about a mirror as well. Interesting topic and I think there is more to mirrors then just a reflection. Thanks for posting.  
Date: 5/19/2010 10:13:00 AM  From Authorid: 16671    There was a boy in texas that was interested in the paranormal. This brought him somehow into doing things with mirrors, I'm not sure what he did, I only know the story his mother told me. His mom and dad are Christians and tried to talk to this boy about the path he was going down, none the less the mom would find finger and hand prints around the mirror every morning. Finally one day the boy was very upset and talked to his mom about this, so she talked to her pastor and he told her how to anoint the house including using the prayed over oil on the mirror, that nothing could come out or go in this mirror. Right as she was doing that the glass coffee table in the living room started to shake and bounce around. Soon it started to roll its self up into a ball of glass and was bouncing all over the living room, she was scared to death but finally was able to have her son help her pick up this ball of shaking glass and take it outside to the trash, put a lid on it and a big rock to hold the lid down. She then finished anointing her house with oil, placing the oil on any doorway,window and mirrors. Her husband came home later and she told him what happened. He didn't believe her until she took him out to the trash where the glass ball was still shaking. Finally they put some of this anointing oil on the glass ball and told what ever was in the ball to leave in Jesus name and never come back. The ball stopped moving and after anointing her house there was then peace in the house. The boy even prayed with his mom and renounced his role in the occult that he had been dabbling in. Do not doubt what you see, when satan left heaven he took tens upon tens upon tens of thousand angels with him, they wanted to go and then they became demonic angels, intent on fooling people on earth and the trouble they can bring with them is not good at all. Even Gods good angels are on this earth to help people, so yes the spiritual realm is very very real. This is why God tells us to test the spirits to see if they are from him. Be carefull on your journey to explore the supernatural, not saying do not explore, just saying one can get in lots of trouble. I have to run but later today I will find some of my older posts on things that have really happened. Things also that happened on a personal level of things I have personally witnessed.  
Date: 4/30/2012 9:26:00 AM  From Authorid: 13283    I am helping a child who has endured alot of pain , trials and tribulations . There is this demon which has been harming and harrasing her her whole childhood . Lately she has been making great strides . She once saw this evil thing in the mirror she had in her bedroom . I had the dad shatter this mirror and throw it away so that thing could not come back . We all later lit religious incense ( frankincense and myrre )throughout the whole house and there has been a noticable improvement in the home . The young girl is finally getting her good health back . If you ever reflect a mirror with another mirror you can see other spirits . You just have to wait and be patient . They do pop up in the reflections from time to time . Magiraz aka

I've always thought theres something on the other side.

I confessed this to a friend and they laughed saying "sure. A wall"

It upset me a bit, but I wrote a poem about it (no one has read it though, it's one I want to keep to myself)

but yeahhh >_< Lol
Date: 6/11/2012 10:08:00 AM  From Authorid: 66161    it makes sense... looking in a mirror and you SWEAR something either moved behind you, or was standing there only to turn around and.. nothing. I have heard that for a mirror to work like that is has to be an old mirror because they were made with silver (if you look at a mirror and see speckles, thats the silver) new mirrors won't work.
Date: 11/28/2012 7:37:00 AM  From Authorid: 66476    If you believe in something, in your mind then it is real. You give the spirits from the dark side entrance into whatever it is you opened, for example: mirror, reflection of the water, doorways of space, gateways, these are all that you have created in your mind. Close those doors and believe on the one true door. Jesus has the truth, open it and set your-self free. Do not be afraid, of things that you hear at night. They are only little in front of God who is beside you.
Date: 11/28/2012 7:54:00 AM  From Authorid: 64819    I don't know about that, but in Feng Shui mirrors suck the energy out of a room. Such as, if you have a mirror in your room, and you wake up tired, the mirror sucked out all your energy while you were sleeping. It is advised that you put a cloth over the mirror to avoid this.
