Does anyone have some information about mirror magic?
Spells, what to look for, what kind of mirror to use, special prep?

There is suppose to be a ritual with a mirror that you place it in a crossroad (forest, road, or otherwise) so it sees all that happens within for like 30 days and you can't check on it during those 30 days and after it is suppose to be strong or something like that.
^ I heard this from my friend some time ago and have never tried it myself.

My personal rituals with mirrors is normally for scrying (sp?). I will either:
* Take the mirror and think of what I am trying to learn/discover. I stare into my own eyes and focus on the pupils. Then slowly, I make it so my eyes stare 'through' those eyes and think of the topic again. Then I demand that my reflection 'show me'. I continue to say this until my pupils begin to grown and I begin to see things.
* I take a candle and burn either a strand of hair or a drop of blood and make sure that I sprinkle some salt in it and set rules of what may pass through this. I then close my eyes and meditate on a question. After I have a firm hold of that question, I open my eyes and stare into the flame.

Mirrors I use now are silver back. Before, I used common hand held mirrors. The silver back seems to work much better than before.
Other than that, I use the mirror for a paper weight. :)

I read that for scyring you supposed to color the back black and keep it in a black cloth for some time and away from everything.

How big or small is the mirror supposed to be or does it matter?

Mine is about the size of my hand. Smaller mirrors are harder for me to concentrate in but I don't think it does.

Like I said, that's just what works for me. :/ there are probably (actually, definitely) better methods than mine.

I think you two talk about different kind of mirrors here. SKGS is talking probably of a Black mirror. Its used for different purposes and its "made" differently.

Oh I know he's talking about a different kind. I'm just going based off the topic and what I know. :)

What is a Black Mirror?

Anaya I was thinking about what you are meaning about mirror.

For black mirrors, you can simply take a piece of glass and put black paper or paint the back black. xD I made a black mirror gift once with a picture frame. As far as I know, it works.

Anaya I was thinking about what you are meaning about mirror.
I am confused with your statement. Would a picture of what I use help at all?

Sorry, just woke up and my english isn't in gear yet.

What I meant was that the mirror magic you talked about was the one I was thinking about.

I still don't understand what a black mirror is? Is it used for special spells?

The black mirrors are typically used to scry, but if you can find other means for them do so :)

Getting into scrying, though, I did read once that you can also use a dark colored bottle or glass something with a smooth surface that is filled with water. 

And always make sure mirror surfaces are clean of smudges and fingerprints.  Windex is my hero <3

Black Mirror: Scrying. As far as I know (and as stated, that's not much), that's all it's used for. Or a horror movie which I want to kind of see now just to see what it was about... but anyway.

You mean the one with the crossroads? I'll try to find more about it and get more information. If I can get my friend to get on, then she'll post in here herself. :)

I am so sorry that I didn't follow along better the first go round. I am sick and got up an hour ago, and just now had breakfast... :o so I'm moving in slow-mo all day.

And always make sure mirror surfaces are clean of smudges and fingerprints.  Windex is my hero <3

By the spirits, it's my hero as well! :D

Which movie are you talking about?

I read that you are not supposed to clean your magic mirror with ammonia-based spray. Ammonia destroys all magic. Just wash it with clean water or a mugwort infusion.  It also should be exposed to moonlight about 3 times a year.

I meant game lol sorry. That be my brain breaking on me again. Though the game WikiPage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Black_Mirror

As for the ammonia,... I don't know about that. I just looked it up and I glanced over this page and it's for clearing out bad juju.

ALSO this is a quote from the AIM where I asked my friend about the ritual and ammonia. (IM names change for personal reasons):

Quote
Anaya - Do you remember the ritual that you told me about dealing with mirrors and crossroads?

? ? ? - Si

Anaya - There is a thread on monstrous that is asking about mirrors and I mentioned it and they want to know more

? ? ? - well I don't remember where I found it but I heard through the grape vine that you can make a spiritual "portal" by obtaining a silver mirror and tie it up in a tree where it can't be seen but a crossroads is in its reflection. It's gotta stay there for a full moon cycle so about a month. (I think your supposed to set the mirror out on a full moon)

Anaya - also, do you know anything about ammonia destroying magic?

? ? ? -  nope, unless the magic is drawn symbols and ammonia can clean that up but other than that I'm drawing a blank

Anaya -  xD

May update with her monstrous name but I can't remember it :o
