The art of divination by mirror is an sncient type of divination by scrying called catoptromancy or enoptromancy.
it was once a widely held belief that demons, Lillith in particular, could enter and possess those who stared in mirrors for too long. Mirrors and
Lillith have long been associated with one other in superstition and mythology.
Also, covering mirrors in a home when someone in the home dies is common practice in Judaism and from that, superstition has sprung up outside of
Judaism that if a mirror is not covered when someone dies in a house, their spirit may become trapped in the mirror.
Finally, folklore states that if a young woman gazed in a mirror long enough on Halloween, she would see the face of her future husband or a skull
personifying death if their fate was to die before they ever married.
There is much more mythology, folklore, superstition, etc., related to mirrors and mirrorgazing. There is the positive and the negative...it's up to
you to decide how you feel about it.
