A Mirror Ritual

Prepare four panels of mirror and one candle. Place the mirrors in such a way that when viewed from above they form a square with each side measuring 15cm in length and facing East, West, South and North respectively. Turn off the light and between 12:46 am to 1:13 am, that is for 27 minutes, and put the lighted candle inside the square.

Then something very terrifying will appear in the mirrors.

Once there was someone who tried this ritual but seeing the image shocked him so much that it turned him mute; and so what was really reflected in the mirrors still remains unknown. The terror drove him to gouge out both his eyes while he was in hospital. The only words he managed to utter before he died were: “I wish I had never seen it.”

  2. Really? But you know much more dangerous magic, right?

    You finished work yet? See you again soon, dear.

  3. Wait, do the reflective parts face outside, reflecting the room, or are they facing inside, reflecting the candle?

    I always thought the "gouged his eyes out" was silly - you can't unsee stuff that way. =< Still, it makes the story scarier. >w<

    Now I'm tempted to do that - but instead of looking in the mirrors myself, using cameras!

  5. As if I wasn't paranoid of mirrors enough. D:

    I don't know why I keep reading these. I really don't need all my fears confirmed like this.

    Although, I am curious as to what you see in there...

  12. These rituals you post, do they work in all parts of the world, or do they only work in Japan?

    Because I don't want to wait for like half an hour in the middle of the night for nothing. (just kidding. i don't wanna do it.)

  16. I wonder how old this ritual is? It reminds me of an Edogawa Rampo story I read where a man built a sphere of mirrors and one light bulb, and then went insane when he went inside and saw what was in there.

    I have also read an American (I think) variation called the mirror box, which is much larger and more involved.

  17. @furikku: Oh! I'm surprised you know Edogawa Rampo. And here I am, a Japanese, not even having read a single Rampo story! XD
    But btw do you know he took his name from Edgar Allan Poe? Quite funny, innit?

    There are lots of rituals around which involve the use of mirror, aren't there? Interesting!

  18. I know this is really old, but I have read about a ritual based upon this. There are very specific rules you must follow otherwise you will either go mad, or be possessed.

    One of the rules involves lighting the candle at the start and blowing it out at a very specific time. I believe you are supposed to see another version of yourself in another world. It's supposedly very dangerous and I wouldn't advise anyone to attempt it.

    I will try and find the ritual in my books and provide more detail.
