Some people “lock” the powers of their mirrors to their use
alone by charging it with a secret, magick word. You can do this while cleansing
and consecrating your magick mirror by placing your finger on the mirror’s
center and saying your magick word three times. Between speaking each word,
remove your finger from the mirror and breathe through the spot.
Allow your psychic energy to mingle with the mirror’s.
To use your magick mirror, place a votive candle behind the mirror (the
mirror will obstruct your view of it) or light two candles on either side
of the mirror. (Personal preference). Hold your hands over the black surface
and whisper your magick word three times. Gaze into the mirror’s blackness
– not on it, but through it. Again, relax your mind and use the usual scrying
techniques we’ve already learned.
Another mirror method is to sit under the full moon with your mirror.
Catch the moon’s reflection in the black mirror and begin scrying into this
