Are all mirrors gateways? Are mirrors really the way to see into the soul? Why do ghosts like to haunt mirrors? Are all mirrors really paranormal? The answer to these questions is no…and yes.
Mirrors have long held mystery and intrigue to many, but most people use mirrors for everyday living without ever giving a thought to what may possibly be lurking beyond the norm. Mirrors are a basic item in every household and business. A mirror in the bathroom is used to fix hair, put on or refresh make-up and just give a glance to admire oneself. Bedrooms usually contain a mirror and a lot of bedroom furniture has built-in mirrors for convenience. This is great for dressing every day to be sure you look your best. Homes and businesses also use mirrors for decor purposes. Not many people give thought to anything more when it concerns their mirror.
I myself have found mirrors fascinating ever since I was a little girl. As far back as I can recall, I would look into mirrors and see into other dimensions. Mirrors were naturally a gateway to me no matter the age of the mirror or the circumstance. Unsurprisingly to me, some mirrors would cry out and scream “portal” but that was rare. A mirror is just a piece of glass with layers of elemental liquids bonded to it. That doesn’t automatically make it paranormal by any means so how does a mirror turn out paranormal?
Mirrors hold energy. They record stories and sometimes, if you know how to tap into that energy, you can get the mirror to replay those stories. Even if you purchase a brand new mirror, it will still come to you with quite a bit of energy stored. The minute it is touched or even just peered into, the energy of that person is drawn in and some of it will be stored. This includes the energy from the people who work in the factory to the people packing it, the people receiving it and who puts it out on the sales floor for purchase. Whatever the surface of the mirror ‘sees’, it records – even another inanimate object. If the mirror has any handles such as a hand mirror or a metal frame, the metal will also absorb energy which will increase the power of the mirror to record energy and events. The longer a mirror has been around, the more energy it will contain. Mirrors are very unique in that they can store frequencies and bounce them back out into the atmosphere due to the way they are made.
A mirror can start to exude paranormal qualities when the energies it has absorbed start to bounce back out of it and into the atmosphere around us. Most people will not pick up that energy though but it will not stop the mirror from gaining more power. Also, depending what type of energy is getting stored into the mirror – that can start sending out a beam of magnetic energy which could and very often does attract the same type of ‘like’ energy to it.
Mirrors have long been a tool to use for psychic work such as scrying – seeing into the past or future as well as getting answers into solutions for issues. Mirrors have a type of hypnotic quality to them and have a unique way of sending you back what you are putting into it. In other words, if you are using the mirror to see into the future to find out if you will meet Mr. or Miss Right – the mirror may respond with possible love life solutions. Keep in mind though that the mirror mimics what it records unless you are actually making a point of contact. Mirrors have a way about them that can softly lull you into a hypnotic state or alter your brain waves bringing you into a meditative frame of mind.
As time goes by, certain energies combined with the right types of atmospheres can attract like energies to it meaning spirits, or just stray energies that are passing by; this can include thought-forms. Usually a deceased person that may end up attached to a mirror is due to a personal preference. If a person dies and the mirror they end up attached to belonged to them, they could stay with that object. That is why many deceased people attach to dolls – especially children. There is a mirror that I am studying now that has a sad story to it. Two children are attached to this mirror as they were murdered along with their parents by an intruder. They attached to the mirror as it belonged to the father. The mirror was a gift to the father from the family so they all felt a sort of – comfort – in being with this object. It acts as an attachment to this world; to the plane of existence they once knew and enjoyed together. That object, the mirror, held a sentimental meaning to them and now they are all with that object where they can still share a type of existence together – even if that existence is a negative one.
The biggest issues with mirrors are gateways that can and do open. It is not too likely that one will just spontaneously open up as there needs to be certain things involved that will initiate that to happen. If enough of the same types of energies form together and become an awareness, with the right situation, it could activate a doorway. Other intelligent entities can find their way to the gateway if it is attracted to strong spiritual energy that may have been building up in the mirror for decades or longer and these entities look for entry into the gateway – or encourage one to open. Old mirrors come with loads of strong energy and this strong energy brings so much with it. This is why some old mirrors can – ‘give you the creeps’ or make you feel like someone is watching you from the mirror. In truth, they might just be. I have had many EVP sessions where entities have told me that they can see me from within the mirror. This indicates a gateway, but perhaps not a portal opening. There are gateways that act as a tunnel or a window to see into another realm but that does't mean a portal - or an actual opening is present. I have found this to be the case many times.
The more involved you become in spiritual, psychic and/or paranormal work, the more chances you will have to run across and/or work with haunted and/or portaled mirrors. The more you work with a particular mirror for a particular reason, the stronger results you will receive. This is why scrying mirrors can become so powerful and effective providing accurate results. If you work with energy – and psychic people do – you can insert your intention into the mirror as a cause and get back the desired effect, but this can be very risky. Even shiny surfaces can act as mirrors and a true scrying mirror is an example of that. Many use an obsidian disk which has a black shiny surface. Water is used many times to scry as it also has a shiny mirror-like surface.
Sometimes when people look into a mirror, they may think they see something that is not there with them in the physical, and that will scare them. Did they just see an anomaly of some type or maybe even a ghost? Very good chance of that since mirrors allow one to focus and observe much better and therefore help them to tune into energies that they may not otherwise ever notice naturally. The spirit world is a subtle one although many spirits can make a ruckus, but the majority do things that are so subtle and that is if they want your attention. Certain energies or dimensional entities gaining access through a gateway to the mirror could reveal things you may not want to see, hear, etc. You just never know who or what may be observing you through your mirror.
You can open a portal anywhere – against a wall, in mid-air, or you can use another object; however a mirror is really one of the best things to use for portal work.
I met an advance being that goes by the name Josh – even though that is not his real name. I stumbled upon him doing a haunted portal mirror experiment and he managed to contact me through other sessions I did – all using the one particular mirror that I used for the first experiment. The mirror in question is very old – from the later 1700s and has many stories to tell along with all the paranormal work I use it for so it is very active. It has more than one programmed portals in it and one of those portals is a direct line to the dimension where Josh resides. I can now contact him whenever I want to using this programmed sequence. I have been learning a lot about Josh and if you check out my PsychicMyst Facebook page, you will find links to my YouTube channel that has information about Josh and even videos on the type of being he is – called a masked face being. It is a fascinating on-going true life sci-fi experience.
So mirrors are intriguing at that. They all carry energy and stories. The older they are, the more probable a paranormal occurrence is likely, but it may be nothing more than residual energy refracting into your world from times past… or it could be haunted. Mirrors are attractive and add a lovely touch to any room, but they can also hold within them centuries of information, mystery, magick and memories. They can be gateways to other worlds and that gateway can work in either direction depending on the circumstances of prior ownership. So next time you purchase a mirror – pay attention to how that mirror makes you feel.
