“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?” Does this phrase sound familiar? Well, almost everybody would recognize the question of the evil crown and step mother of Snow White.
The Magic Mirrors
Of course, in this case, the mirror had a trapped soul, and couldn’t lie to the witch. And, finally, this was exactly the reason of her doom, for black magic always destroys the witch who casts it. But, mirrors that answer questions are a common tool of the diviners and most of them are just enchanted objects.
Mirrors seem to be one of the most widely used objects in the history of magic. This fact is so well known that folklore and literature often enough mention their use. From contacting others to teleportation, and from hexing to blessing, mirrors can do almost everything, if the caster knows their secrets.
The Lore of Magic Mirrors
One of the most common uses of the magical mirrors is in spells of beauty. In Maurice Leblanc’s “La Comtesse de Cagliostro”, the twenty years old Arsène Lupin meets the one hundred and twenty four years old Countess, who looks not older than thirty years of age. In an incident, Lupin sees the Countess looking much older, but she takes out a certain mirror, sprinkles on its surface a few drops of a liquid and sweep them mumbling something and she becomes again as young and as brilliant as she was. It is worth mentioning that Maurice Leblanc, as well as many so-called lupinologists, state that Arsène Lupin really has existed, and the stories are real, as well.
In any case, this is a real spell, or more accurately, a real category of spells. Here, I am going to give you a simple way to cast this spell.
You will need:
- A mirror, never used before, which you will chose for this purpose and this purpose only.
- A piece of cloth. Black, or red, silk would be the best choices. Black, or red, velvet comes second. The cloth must be big enough to enfold the mirror.
- Some rosewater, or essential oil of rose (not necessarily rose attar). You can find here how to make your own rose water.
Clean the mirror of all previous energies by putting it in salt water for a day or so. Alternatively, use any other cleansing ritual you prefer.
Sit comfortably, and drop seven drops of the oil, or the water, on the surface of the mirror. Using the piece of cloth sweep the surface with circular moves, clockwise, while looking in the mirror and seeing yourself as you want to be. Take as much time as you need. Then immediately cover the mirror with the cloth and put it in a safe place.
Repeat the ritual daily, until you start seeing visible changes in your looks. Then, keep on doing it as often as you need it. Start from little and believable to you changes. Then you may proceed to greater ones. A very powerful day for all beauty spells is Beltane. Use it, if you want, to start using your beauty mirror. Fridays and Mondays are also good days for beauty spells.
So, that’s it. Have fun. Offer love to yourself and to others and make yourself and the word better and more beautiful.
