Mirrors. They say they reflect your soul. They’re also a very common entry point for evil spirits. Learn how to defend yourself.
Mirrors can be troublesome. They share many of the same ghostly bonds as haunted locations. Usually, the two go together. Especially when an evil spirit is involved.
Many times, a very twisted spirit attaches to the mirror. Many mentally sick people, like psychopaths, have a narcissistic disorder. They spend a lot of time looking at themselves in mirrors. They’re vain, vapid and evil.
Mirrors capture the essence of these people. When an evil person projects that much energy into their image, it’s bound to get locked into the mirror. A link to the spirit is now forged.
How do you end up with a haunted mirror? Estate sales and eBay.
Antique mirrors are very popular collectibles, but they don’t come with a curse-free guarantee. If you buy an antique or previously owned mirror, you could invite spirits into your home.
To be safe, you may want to research the history of the mirror. During your research, if you find the previous owner committed crimes or the home where the mirror hanged was the scene of tragic events, then you may want to pass on the sale. You could also ask a psychic, gifted with psychometry, to review the mirror. If they pick up bad vibes, move the mirror out of your house. At the very least, leave it wrapped up so you can’t see your reflection. Once see your reflection in it, the mirror could open up to the spirit world.
There really isn’t a good way to purge the spirit from a haunted mirror. The most common ways to break the bond include:
- Burning the object (not ideal in this case)
- Blessing the mirror (this is hit or miss)
- Breaking the glass and replacing it (again, it’s hit or miss)
- Bury it in a graveyard or cemetery
All of the solutions mean you lose your money. The best method is prevention. Do the research and make sure it’s clean before you buy it.
