Mirrors, Scrying, Mirror Superstitions, Mirror Legends, Divination And The Paranormal: Just a few topics that come up in paranormal circles.
Speech is the mirror of the soul.
– Publilius Syrus
Mirrors go back to the old world of scrying and magic. They are also seen as portals to other worlds. It is also said that mirrors are windows to parallel universes, but I’ll leave that one for another time.
Seeing, reading, peeping, and gazing are some, but not all, names used for scrying:
The word “scrying” usually means to foretell the future using a crystal ball or other reflective objects or surfaces.
Scrying is an ancient art of divination, and it’s purpose is to receive information through our psychic abilities by opening our inner eye, or using our abilities to receive visions, messages and information from spirit or spirit realms.
Sometimes we will receive messages in words, stories, or pictures. Some of us experience movie-like scenes to answer our questions. Depending on how experienced a seer/reader/medium you are definitely helps with what kind of information you can receive.
Over the years, if you continue practicing scrying, you’ll start to build strong connections with spirit, but more so you will build your confidence as a reader.
It brings you closer to the universe, raising your vibrations energy and frequency. Therefore it connects you to everything, especially spirit.
So I’ll share a few techniques for those starting out learning to improve your psychic abilities:
Mirror scrying is still very much used in todays society, especially in the paranormal/psychic circles, or for rituals in the occult etc…
Some mediums/fortune tellers/occultists/etc use mirrors for different purposes. Some use mirrors for reading one’s future or for finding answers to individual questions.
Others can use it to summon darker entities; certainly not a practice that I’d ever recommend doing. I use mirrors like any tool used in the paranormal, and it takes time to learn and understand, and like any work with spirit, respect is a must.
Make sure you work with your guides and you are knowledgeable with your grounding/white lighting and protection to stay safe. Grounding and protection is key number one to learn firstly before scrying, or before any form of paranormal investigations.
I always do body stretches, before I scry, to release any tension build up in my body. You need to be in a comfortable and relaxed state before scrying. It is key, as well, to practice deep breathing to put your mind in a good place before any trance work.
Make sure you’re wearing comfortable clothes I have a black robe that I wear, but this is not necessary;I like to dress for my art, and scrying is my art.
It’s best to do scrying in a trance-like meditative state:
Clear your mind. Meditate, and remove unwanted toxic thoughts, clearing your mind for mirror scrying is key. Relax and breath deeply and slowly, concentrate on lowering your heart rate. I personally think this is the best way, but everyone is different. If you wish to incorporate music, incense, etc, please do.
A trance-like state is an altered state of consciousness. I believe scrying to be the best form of communication with spirit, and at the same time, you will learn to increase your skills and knowledge in so many areas of Mediumship. This helps you on your journey in all aspects of not, only the paranormal field, but in self healing and enlightenment.
Make your atmosphere comfortable. I use a dimly lit room with incense and relaxing music, and I always scatter white candles behind me so I have enough light to work with, but not so much light that it is over powering.
Make yourself comfortable and relaxed in your environment and surroundings. Different candle colours have different meanings for spell work (you can incorporate spell work with scrying, but wait until you have some experience under your belt first) I always use white candles, but everyone is different.
Some people take drugs and alcohol to go into a deep trance state of mind. Please take note (and I can’t stress this enough): this is extremely dangerous, and not a path you want to go down. Being under the influence of drugs like DMT or other psychedelic street drugs can be dangerous – not only adverse medical effects of taking the drug itself, but also working with spirit: you’ll more than likely attract lower entities and it can cause
The first thing they tell me when we meet, just before 2 p.m. on a crisp Saturday in March, is to watch out for the mean man named Henry on the third floor. “Hold on to the railing when you’re on the stairs. We think he might push someone.” As well as being mean, there’s something unusual about Henry: he’s dead.
I’m standing in the gravel parking lot of the Players’ Guild theatre in Hamilton, conferring around parked cars with a trio of paranormal investigators from a team called The Searcher Group. Peter Roe — wearing a fleece sweater from the historic witch-hunting city of Salem, Mass. — James McCulloch and the moustachioed Palmisano brothers, Richard and Paul, are here to collect evidence and learn the histories of the ghosts on the property. They tell me there are at least four, based on their visit the previous autumn.
Staff at the community theatre, North America’s oldest, reached out to Roe last year because they sometimes felt like they weren’t alone — especially on the third floor and in the basement where they often work late at night, finding costumes or organizing props. One member heard a whisper in her ear as she went to lock the front door one night: “Help me! Get me out of here!” She turned around, expecting to see a friend playing a trick on her. There was no one there.
Once strange stories started swirling around the theatre, the haunting became part of the space’s mythology. The front page of its website boasts of “rumours of a ghost in the costume room,” adding it to the list of thousands of houses, churches and other landmarks rumoured to be haunted worldwide. In his 2013 book, Paranormal Nation, Marc E. Fitch argues that the growth of the Internet and the after-effects of 9-11 have pushed people toward the paranormal; extraordinary explanations for unusual experiences can bring order to the chaos of an isolating, uncertain world. The pop culture world has certainly picked up on this yen for the paranormal. Ghost Hunters, a reality TV show where investigators run around haunted houses with expensive recording gear and night-vision goggles, is in its 11th season; single-episode viewership has reached as high as 3.1 million. Innumerable movies with occult and paranormal themes come to the big screen every year, and Stephen King dominates bestseller lists.
For many, ghosts are more than just spooky fiction. A 2007 Ipsos Reid poll found that 48 percent of Canadians believe that ghosts are real; American and British surveys have come up with similar results. Ten percent of Canadians think that they’re living with a spirit

What are ghosts?
Based on the title of this website Ghosts! Are they real?, you’ll know that it’s about the reality of ghosts, and haunting’s. To be honest, nobody knows with absolute certainty whether entities such as ghosts are real or not. But if we make the assumption for a few moments that ghosts are real. Then, in my opinion the next logical question to ask is. What are ghosts? What are these ghosts, that haunt our homes and scare us in the middle of the night? The simple answer to this question is that, ghosts are the disembodied spirits or souls of once living persons, persons who now walk the night and intrude into our nightmares and fantasies. This definition, is not very satisfying to anyone, believer or skeptic. Most paranormal researchers believe there are two distinct types of ghosts, the residual ghost and the intelligent ghost.
The first type of ghost would be that of a residual ghost. It is a type of ghost, that is not real in any empirical or physical manner. I would not refer to this type of ghost as a spirit of a once living person, because the essence, soul or energy that animated that person in life would not be present. It would not have any intelligence, personality or physical mass and it would not be able to manifest itself at will, nor would it be able to interact with the living in any meaningful way.
A ghost of this type would very much be like watching a motion picture, that has an actor who is now deceased. The only real difference, it would be more akin to a 3 dimensional holographic projection of that actor. It, the ghost would be like an image of that once living person that somehow imprinted itself upon the physical environment.
