Many years ago I knew an antiques dealer, he had a mirror that he sold, the people that bought the mirror, returned it to him. The reason for this return, was that they didn’t like seeing other people in the mirror, people that weren’t there!

Something worth thinking about, when getting your kit off in front of the mirror, trying on clothes, whatever.
I never have a mirror facing my bed, never know who's watching.

Just a theory.

I think it's interesting. There are many superstitions surrounding mirrors. I have heard od people who will not use an antique or used mirror because they feel that it carries whatever images were reflected in it.

The superstition of breaking a mirror bringing bad luck is also well known to many. In Feng shui (sp) there are various caveats regarding mirrors.

Certain faiths cover mirrors in black when there has been a death in the family.

I can believe that a mirror could hold residual energy, particularly of something dramatic or tragic.

Great, now you both have me wondering if I should get rid of that 60+ year old mirror in my garage that someone gave me years ago. It used to be in an old dresser but they took it out of that, and now I have it. I wanted to save it from the dump but never did end up using it. So there it sits.

Well I've known a few people (and read about others), who when they get up in the middle of the night for whatever reason, refuse to look in any hallway/living room full or half length mirror in the dark. They can justify it any way they want, but it seems to come down to half expecting to see something looking out at you as you pass. There are those folks who will not have a mirror in their bedroom, or will cover the mirror at night. I'm not sure why reflected glass would bring that out in people, but it seems to. I haven't seen anything in a mirror that shouldn't have been there, but I must admit it is a little creepy passing a mirror in the dark for some reason.

I'm one of those people who don't like looking in a mirror in the dark. I've never seen anything but it just creeps me out. I also am too scared to buy an old antique mirror, the thought is just scary. I'm sure it sounds ridiculous to some but it creeps me out! I do have a mirror on top of my dresser and that doesn't ever scare me, although at night I do avoid looking in it. Ha!

this is interesting. kind of like cocteau- that classic scene from one of his films whose title escapes me, where they walk through a mirror into another world.....i WISH that were true, would make life a bit more interesting. don't you think?

I too have heard that they can sometimes be used as portals into this world from other worlds unless they are sealed.
Some people use bright shiny objects as scrying devices like glasses of water, crystal balls, shiny polished stones, "mirror,mirror on the wall....who is the fairest of them all"
Could be something in it for some (and not just their reflections either).

All I know is once, while I was brushing my teeth, I saw a pair of yellow eyes staring back at me from my bathroom mirror.

Somehow, Baby, my cat, climbed and balanced on the shower curtain rail and her weight dragged the spring loaded rod down the wall a foot....

It certainly is shocking when you don't expect your cat there. It could be worse -- she could have leapt onto my back.

I once had an Air Force base commander who had a large mirror installed on the ceiling above his bed during his first marriage. I discovered this from a story I was told and verified it through a window while I was assigned on base detail to water the Commander's lawn one weekend. The story was that the Commander's first wife, supposedly a beautiful blonde, left him for a lowly enlisted staff sergeant. Luckily I never encountered the Colonel that weekend because I was a staff sergeant at the time and felt he may have wanted to kick me into another paranormal dimension.
