Mirrors magnify psychic energy. I wrote about it in Goddess of the Wild Thing. The witch did black magic by gazing into a mirror: “Seconds, hours, or eons passed. Time did not matter in the world of witches and sordid magic. Sweet Mary continued to gaze into the bathroom mirror, its surface dripping with humidity. She pondered and plotted, scene after terrible scene supernaturally forming across the hazy glass.”
A person I knew was upset and asked if they could share a dream. I agreed, and she told me a nightmare. She entered a dimly lit room and gazed into an old mirror. Rage at someone who betrayed her filled the air. She began humming, focused malevolent energy into a mirror. It swirled with hatred.
The mirror shattered, shards falling to the floor. In each shard was her reflection. It was twisted and deformed. She had cast her spell and trapped her soul in the shattered fragments. I offered, “Your rage is black magic and binds your soul, the evil boomeranging back.”
She took my words to heart, our talking its own mirror. I asked her what she saw as we talked. “It’s strange, but the shards are disintegrating. Now, I see that I hurt others with my hate. But it comes back at me! Best not to go there.”
Stories are mirrors that reflect the light and darkness in the human heart. I encourage folks to live deeply by reading daily. It’s an excellent way to look into a metaphysical mirror and take stock of yourself. Remember, stories trigger feelings and mirror what lies within. And it’s best to know what lies within, for psychic energies are both light and dark.
