Title: Mirrors as.... doorways to astral projection
Post by: serge on July 28, 2017, 11:04:49
Several decades ago a singular event happened to me, which has marked me for the rest of my life. It happened out of the blue, on a Saturday morning around 10:00. I had my breakfast and then I went in the bathroom to shave and wash. 8-)
My apologies to those of you who have already read this story. Yes I have posted it before on this forum and on Speaking of Seth forum  .

The reason I am revisiting the subject is that one of my most recent readings shed a new light to it.

Back to the washroom...shaving, etc.
There I was fully awake in broad day light casually looking at myself in the bathroom mirror when a human body appeared behind me, looking as casual as myself and not seeming to be one bit surprised to see me there.  It was a man perhaps in his thirties, same height as me, much stronger build, lots of hair everywhere (long bushy beard, long hair and body hair). The creature reminded me of a neanderthal man...with my own face. The event did not last more that 10 seconds and then the figure vanished as it came.

All these years I never forgot this. Then my spouse advised me not to talk about what she labelled hallucinations and I did not.

The book I read lately is called Soul flights by Donald Tyson. It is about astral projection with a shamanic, magic twist. He covers in detail the use of mirrors as doorways to astral projection. This reminded me of the neanderthal man impromptu visit in my bathroom mirror.

My question to you more experienced travellers. Have you successfully used mirrors as gate to Astral? And how do you proceed?

well I never knew it to be a gateway to the astral, I knew you could use it as a portal after the fact that you had already projected, I didn't know you can use it to help project, unless I missunderstood your referencing of it, I would like to read this book do you think there's a pdf of it. I would also like  to thank you for the idea as well, I will attempt to use the mirror when I do get out to help me accomplish my mission, it will help me get to the being i'm after quicker.

That author seems to be an authority in using mirrors for occult purposes. A google search reveals, among his 40+ books, one entitled "How To Make And Use A Magic Mirror - Psychic Windows Into New Worlds" that can be downloaded in pdf format.

I also remember other authors that describe using mirrors for past life regressions.

I personally only have two experiences with mirrors I recall. One was during a LD/projection. In that one I saw a creature very much like the one you described above. I have no idea why or where the anger came from, but in that one I turned to face the creature and yelled furiously at him.

In the next exp during a projection I noticed a mirror and decided to have a look. I was surprised to see a woman on the other side combing her hair in a bath or bedroom. A man (assuming her husband) came through the door, noticed me and pulled her away from the mirror. Interestingly enough, one of my helpers also snatched me from behind and whisked me away dumping me in a field.

Don't know what it is about mirrors.

Thank you for sharing that experience serge! This adds to a slowly building database relating directly to a variety of phenomena associated with mirrors, within both Physical and Non-Physical environments.

I have read of similar experiences to both yours and Nameless', although not experienced them myself.

My 3 experiences with mirrors:

1- I have a large 4'x7' mirror over my twin vanity directly off the foot of my bed. About 10 years ago it finally occurred to me how odd it was that I had never noticed, much less looked into or investigated the mirror during an etheric OBE. So apparently, that was enough intention and a few nights later the thought occurred at the appropriate time. The first time I looked into the mirror from the etheric state all I saw was a relatively close reflection of a 'ghostly' me.

2- Several months later, I happened to look into the mirror again, from a RTZ state and I saw something shockingly different. It was like I was staring at my physical body but the outer layer of skin was missing. The underlying musculature, sinew and some organs were distinctly visible. It was quite an uncomfortable sight and I quickly lost awareness. Interestingly, I came across a member's drawing in the Member's Artwork section a year or so later, a piece by Summerlander, which I tried to find but is apparently no longer accessible: it was nearly exactly what I had seen; thus a heck of a confirmation for me. (He had a few drawings that were strikingly realistic to a number of experiences)

3- The time I visited my deceased father, I had made an Etheric exit and noticed a mirror on my bedroom wall (this mirror did not actually exist, but I recognized the opportunity it was affording me in this context). I had been thinking often recently of how a mirror could be used as an Astral portal, intending to try one the next time I had the chance. So there it was and I instinctively announced my 'intent' and 'dived' into the mirror...and off I went.

So, yes, mirrors can be utilized as portals or access points to wherever you want to go. They are the logical first portals that occur to most of us. They still require an 'Intent', a definite thought/desire for a destination. In general, people are easier to travel to rather than places, events or things. Without an Intent, you go nowhere. Once you learn the importance of Intent, then you begin to realize that literally anything can be used as a 'portal'. So it's not the portal that is important, it is the Intent...

A second observation about mirrors is their mercurial nature...they seem to provide a variety of wondrous experiences. I have read a couple times about the 'primitive', also the 'meatsack' such as I saw, plus the seemingly 'parallel world' experience that Nameless described. Is this possibly a mixture of past/present/future/parallel lives that mirrors can present us?

Very interesting devices...

 :-)I should stress the fact that I have no experience in "voluntary" projection through a mirror. This event happened to me out of nowhere. I too would like to try, because I am generally not too good at projecting, perhaps this will be my way. My understanding of Tyson's Soul Flight is that mirrors can be used in various ways depending on how interested in magic and rituals you might be. Personally this is not my strongest suit and if I try mirrors it will be the dummy's way. A plain mirror in the hypnagogic or hypnopompic state. If you are more serious or more advanced than I you may want to follow Tyson in another book entirely focused on the use of mirrors (black mirrors) in astral projection. This is a pdf that Baro-san (here) kindly mailed to me:
