I'm currently doing research on the different properties and uses of mirrors in Magick. Most of the information I have found so far deals with mirror gazing to see the future, your own past lives, etc. I remember ready about a (real) sorcerer who used a mirror and not only could he see whatever was happening in the world, he could even strike death to his enemies by it. In another old book I read about a woman who could use her Magick energy to heal people, again by mirrors, but none of these sources explain how.
I can imagine that mirrors can somehow amplify the power of the practitioner (kind of like a quartz crystal), but how to use them exactly; do I sit and gaze into the mirror and visualize the person I want to help being healed? I am familiar with the practice of lighting a candle on a mirror to double the effect but want to know how else to use mirrors.
Also if anyone has any information about using mirrors for contacting spirits, guides and entities please share, I'd really appreciate it.
Blessings and best wishes to all of you
