Mirrors are thought to be the portal to the unknown. Mirrors are forbidden in movies, dramas, the theatre, and psychic personals. The unknown is a terrible experience, which is heightened when you are superstitious from the start.
Movies have an important part in the perpetuation of mythology. One of the main reasons that people in Western civilization avoid mirrors and other supernatural items that could induce a tingle in the spine is that they show another ‘world’ and a whole new reality on the other side of the mirror.
Nonetheless, here are the reasons why we believe you should not spend too much time staring in the mirror.
1. Portal for supernatural:
We humans enjoy looking at ourselves. We prefer to feel lovely and loved only when we are visually appealing. What if you aren’t the only one who is staring at yourself? What if someone else is peering through the ‘portal’ at you?
2. Jinn can fall in love:
Desi mothers enjoy chastising their daughters for wearing too much cosmetics or perfume. Jinns adore that nonsense; they adore being with humans who dress nicely and appear pleasing to the eye.
If a jinn falls in love with you, it will do everything in its power to make you theirs. Be it a jinn or a jinni, they will be as near as they can be.
4. Bathroom mirrors can be haunted:
Have you ever pondered why bathrooms used to be so far away from the house in the past? Perhaps they were on to something. Jinns have a peculiar relationship with the lavatory; you could call it a portal to their world. Keep it in mind the next time you’re butt naked in there.
5. Mirrors can mislead:
It is no secret that the longer you stare into the mirror, the more ugly you feel. What if there was a deeper meaning behind this. For all we know, your subconscious is sensing a supernatural being around you and is making you feel uneasy.
