Seriously ... THANK YOU ALL!!!
I was truly scared about sharing this experience. Just not knowing how people would react. I was hoping no one would be mean. And no one has. Everyone has been so kind and helpful.

I even got a pm about this and they were and are going to helpful I do believe


Ok.. So the lighting in the room when I saw myself old was dim. But the nuke em high shirt scene..was bright light.

I was told I may have been daydreaming...which does make sense. I still have thoughts that it was either daydream and my subconscious trying to tell me something...or it was time slip. Either way. It happened and I will just keep moving forward.

Also to one who said is it my emotions I'm feeling. It is my own emotions and it's others..so it's like a double or triple of the emotion I feel. Which can be overwhelming at times. I'm learning.

Thanks again everyone. We can continue to chat about this. And I can continue to share if I happen to see something again.. I just haven't fully looked in the mirror directly since these events occured.

Oh and to doc-thanks for just reading. Much appreciated.

And greyeagle. Deja vu.. Is something I'm very interested in. And very interesting what you said about our left and right brain functions.

I was told about a meditation technique where after lighting a couple of candles and after relaxation to stare into a mirror and meditate, focusing on trying to gain access to past lives.


This is exactly what I was going to mention as just something to ponder.

Oddly enough, I have experienced this myself. I was much younger and saw myself in a mirror and didn't recognize myself. It was as though I was wearing some stranger's body. At that time, I had to RE-acquaint myself with, well, myself.

A close friend of mine had a theory regarding mirrors. She essentially described a mirror has having six sides, instead of two as most people believe.

I suppose if the mirror were round it would only have three sides. Either way, a reflection bounces around inside the mirror as well, and she believed that somewhere within the mirror was a portal through which "beings" could travel.

It might be interesting if you take your experience and research more on others who have had this experience. You could call it "Seeing is Believing" or "Multiplicity"

Hello Natalia.....first you must realize that there is so much to being human that most of us do not understand and without overwhelming you or anyone else for that matter, so it is essential to take a deep breath and exhale for the exercises are to enhance our ability that is and was taken from us through a structured up bringing through childhood, school, work going and family. I am going to keep it short and help you realize your own ability that you discovered recently. Light a candle, sit it on a counter or dresser with a mirror that is large and where you can get extremely close to the mirror as much as 3 to 4 inches. Next, breathe deeply and stare THROUGH the mirror and talk to your higher self (the forgotten self) all the while focusing directly in between your eyes without blinking and your image will begin to shift to faces of past lives and slowly you will see and experience one element of the power of human distraction can for a moment be recaptured and help you regain control of our sense of being that was methodically removed from our lives. The more you become aware, the stronger you become and slowly you will pull people into your life that is on your initial frequency. Good Luck!

Oh I truly believe that everything happens for a reason as well.

I can't meditate though freely..or at least without it being guided. I was advised by an acquaintance not to meditate on my own. The last time I meditated was last April. Evil followed me out of my sessions I was having and causing me physical harm in my sleep. So I stopped and the harm stopped as well. I have no reason to lie about this.

I know a member sled has a thread about past regression...and I want to, but I fear it. And she told me that it would probably be unwise to try and do a regression session with fear in my heart.

I do think some and not all have had past life's and I was told I have had several. So I truly have no doubt in that.

Thank you for your response


It is very common to have spirit intervention when someone starts meditating, particularly when someone with strong potential starts meditating. That's because they don't like people progressing in meditation and finding their inner strength and creativity (creativity meaning energetic creativity not the arts). They are energetic predators/parasites that serve as obstacles to discourage and distract practitioners from progressing. This is why some traditional buddhist lineages have guided meditations called sadanas or prayer books. They set motivation and request protection then meditation takes place, then there is a dedication at the end to seal the session in positive energy. There are many modern (new age) techniques of doing this. Some ask archangels, white light, etc.

However, if you have fear when you practice, you are like a fawn in an open field surrounded by wolves.

I had similar mirror images when I started meditation years ago. I would be shocked at how old and sad I looked. That is an indication of spirit intervention. They may be feeding off of you (energetically) in your sleep and you are seeing your energetic image. You said you are tired and stressed, that could be a symptom of spirit intervention. There are many people here who can give pointers.

I continue to have problems with spirits whenever my meditation practice is going well. They don't bother with people making no progress so I sort of take it as a compliment now! lol I sometimes give them offerings of smalls bits of food which I take outside so that they leave but they will come back. Some people use salt around their home.

Yes, they are projections of your mind, past lives, energetic connections to other dimensions. Does it really matter? When you find your power motivated by compassion, you will be better able to keep them in check. but they will always be lurking for those moments of weakness.

This thread is very good and monitored by several very knowledgeable folks.

Blessings and good luck!

One more thing... practices/meditations that look to connect with past lives or the dead are like walking in a bad neighborhood asking for trouble. If you want to connect with good higher beings (really your highest self), that's not the they way to do it. Your highest potential is not stuck in past lives or hanging out with the dead. In fact your highest self is with you all the time but we are distracted by sensory perception. Meditation helps to remove sensory perception. Your first highest connection with any entity needs to be with highest self or a qualified guru (but that is a different subject). You don't go into a nice neighborhood and knock on doors asking to be let in. You build your house next to theirs, your house of compassion, love, positive energy.

HI there, without sounding to hypo, I would perhaps take a visit to the docs. Sounds very much like mirrored self Miss-identification disorder, yes that a real thing, can be caused by real time stress, PTSD, even suppressed angst and childhood trauma. however unchecked, can lead to further mental ilness!!

Uhhh......in all seriousness.....


If this continues.....

Especially if you start seeing this kind of thing in mirrors other than in your bathroom.

Or worse, not even in mirrors at all.

You truly may wish to consult with a trained psychiatrist.

I am NOT looking to belittle you...nor your experiences. But, I've known schizophrenics who have said very similar things.

And honestly, if this is a mental health issue, it is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about.



Just seek help. You're the only person who can do this for you.

Sled was one of the first members I messaged about the mirror images. And she is the thread starter of the thread you linked me to. Also she encouraged me to make this thread.

I am starting to think that it doesn't matter what I saw. It's what I do from here onward. My heart is filled with love and compassion, but also grief and sadness. I try so hard to project my love outward when I'm around others so that they won't feel my grief or sadness... Cause I don't want to bring others down.

I know at times I can be weak but also I have been through so much, that I am a very strong gal.
I have been wanting to meditate again, because it helped me so much with my anxiety. I will try and find some guided meditation, or just listen to nothing and center myself and ask my god to protect me.

Also... You make so much sense when you say that going to my past lives is like walking into a bad neighborhood. I've been contemplating past regression and I've come to the conculsion, that I'm not supposed to know what happened in my last lives. It's this life I need to focus on.
Thank you for your response and thanks for the blessings and luck.. Although, I truly don't believe in luck


Peace and love and Godspeed --

I just may try what you say. It does sound a little creepy tbh. I just truly don't like looking at myself in the mirror anyways.. I always just glance in it or look at it, but it seems like I look at myself through my perifial vision.
Thank you

I have actually been having repressed memories flash in my head lately. They are memories of things that happened after my fall in 2008. Traumatic brain injury.... It didn't kill me, but won't let me rest.
I've been to doctors. I haven't been to my therapist about these incidents. But I was seeing my therapist when I had accidentally brought out something when I was meditating, she told me to quit meditating as well...so I did.

I'll look I to what you mentioned about self mis-identification disorder... But like I've said before. I feel and know that this expericence I had has no scientific explanation.
Thank you for your response.

I have only had two times of seeing anything in the mirror. I have never seen things outside of a mirror that wasn't there..and if I did... Well I do believe in spirits and evil entities. So like I've said, not everything has to have a scientific explanation.
The only help I need seeking with is something personal I'd rather not discuss honestly. And I will be able to speak with my therapist soon about that.

I have diff views in things and this expericence ...well I feel it was shown to me for a reason.
Thanks of your repsonse.

Natalia, I didn't mean to imply you are weak at all, in fact the opposite. Spirits like a challenge, so the stronger you get the more they try to interfere. I had an amazing meditation day Saturday and then had a bad dream that night. When I woke up and was disturbed by the dream, I had a flash of the spirit laughing, like he was so pleased with himself! I know it's just a cheap trick at trying to trigger to discouragement. Yes, you are strong and that is why you may be a target. We don't get stronger without upping the challenge, so think of it as part of training, adding more weight on the machine or running that extra mile. Spirits are not inherently enemies, they are hecklers and bad sportsmen who like to deflate tires and put rocks in your shoes. Brush them off and keep going with Godspeed!

One more tip... don't sleep on your back. Sounds strange but more than one source has said that sleeping on you back makes you vulnerable to spirit intervention. I don't know why. However, since sleeping on my side I find I have fewer bad dreams and sleep better. Now I've noticed that every time I wake up from a bad dream, I'm lying on my back. Go figure...

If anyone hasnt mentioned this yet.

Its due to the brain peripheral vision + lighting.

I've been experimenting with this some time ago. People call it mirror gazing
scrying, but in reality, doesnt really have anything to do with it.
Its more like a mind hack, your brain makes up images from the subconscious.
Like your brain needs constant info being absorb, but since you are staring
only into a mirror, gets confused.

Easy way to attempt this would be, just some notes, theres nothing evil or
bad about this trick. Might be bad if you are a schizophrenic maybe or mental
problems, you might see them unfold.


Best way to achieve trick is the CORRECT lighting.
1.Get a mirror. Maybe a dark room or restroom.
2.Place a candle out of view of mirror or behind you,
make sure you can at least make out your face at least, not perfectly,
just dim enough.
3. Stare into the mirror without BLINKING, this is the trigger.
Can take anywhere from 3mins - 30mins . And dont move.
4. This is where the brain will create illusions before your eyes.
Your face will turn into different people, animals, etc.
Your face will even disappear lol.
Even different things will appear before you in the mirror.
With a crystal ball
you can see a landscape unfold before your eyes, its neat stuff,
like a dream

iv had a similar experience. i was told to look into the mirror and focus on my third eye. i closed my eyes and asked my spirit guide for protection and what i saw was incredible! my face morphed into a lion and and old man with a big brown beard! i closed my eyes and saw colours ive never seen before! the realm of spirituality is so deep we will never know. but i beleive 100% in what you say, just ask your spirit guide to protect you and surround your self in white light! don be afraid friend

Reminds me of a game bloody mary, people came across this idea
by thinking of a scary image within their mind of a women
covered in blood, and when you stare at a dimly litted
mirror, she would appear. This is what you are
projecting from the mind. You can think of her,
its funny but not for the squeamish .

your welcome Natalia.....First try it during the day, blue sky, positive upbeat mood, it's really not that bad. It could also be your tapping into a newfound skill (frequency) some more so than others, good luck and sorry for the late reply, started training in my sport again after two months of lying low. Good luck!

I have something along these lines. A photo just appeared on my phone as a selfie but that I hadn't taken. In the backround it looks different to anywhere that I have been recently and the coat I am wearing I have never owned but have been looking for something like it for Christmas. I look no diffrent than now so it must be soon.
