I thought the Virgin Mary appeared in my bathroom mirror -- curious, because there were no Catholics in a 2-mile radius of my house. It had two eyes, a mouth, and even some hairs! I videotaped it and freaked out everyone.
When I was 10 my sister told me that she had seen the face of the person she was in her past life in the mirror in the bathroom. She said that once when she was alone at home, she went in the bathroom, closed the door and switched off the lights but before that she put a candle right next to her but in a way when the mirror wouldn't reflect it. So she concentrated on watching the point right between her eyebrows. After a while her face got another shape and changed into a man's face. She got scared, blew out the candle and ran away. I believed her when she told me this but now I'm not quite sure I still believe her. We were kids back then and sometimes kids make up that kind of stories just to attract someone's attention.
When i was about 9 i thought that mirrors really showed the souls of people they sucked into them!
In my bathroom there were 2 mirrors, one in front and one in back on a door. I use to beleive that if you could see yourself mant times multiplied in the mirror then at the very end was a little person waving at you. But I could never see that far....
I went through this phase when I was about 6 where I strongly believed that the person in the mirror was the REAL me and I was just her reflection, and that there was a thing where we got switched. I think I must've read too much Alice in Wonderland.
I used to believe that when you go in the bathroom and you look at the mirror, you would have to keep looking at it or you might not see your reflection...
The mirrors in the upstairs bathrooms in my house had cabinets behind them with a slot for used razors. Until I was about 10, I thought all bathroom mirrors had cabinets, but that some were nailed to the wall because the razor slots were full and the builders didn't want peple to get hurt. This is also why the downstairs mirrors were bigger - to cover the hole.
I read somewhere that you can only see ghosts in mirrors and you can't see vampires in them at all.
This made washing my hands in front of the bathroom mirror at night very tricky as I'd have to stare into the mirror checking for ghost and whip my head around every few seconds to make sure no vampires were sneaking up on me.
When I was growing up, there was a huge cedar wardrobe in my room that had a two large mirrors built into the doors. It faced my bed and I always avoided looking into those mirrors at night. I was convinced they were somehow two way - regular mirrors by day, and spyholes by night. I couldn't bring myself to look at those mirrors after the lights went out because I might see some odd person watching me!
I used to believe that if I stared into a mirror long enough then I'd turn into someone else. That belief eventually evolved into me thinking that if I stared long enough I'd see what I'd look like as an adult.
As the saying goes - breaking a mirror will bring you seven years bad luck. As a kid I was terrified. Seven years is such a very long time (when you are 7 years old!). I broke a mirror and really worried about how long it'd be till my life got better again.
I used to believe that monsters couldnt find me or hurt me if my whole body where under my blanket
I used to believe that my parents had installed a camera behind the (two-way) bathroom mirror. I used to cover it up with a towel so they couldn't see me naked!
I used to think I could sneak up on my reflection and catch myself not looking back at me.
I've always hated looking into mirrors at night. I still can't bring myself to look into them; I have this feeling I can't shake that if I look into a mirror at night I will find something very evil waiting for me. Maybe in the mirror; maybe I will see it in the mirror and it will appear behind me in real life. It creeps me out.
The neighbours and I were
surprised to discover that my
25 year old (ex)boyfriend
believed it was OK to wander
around naked, with an erection,
whilst the curtains were open
and the light was on because
"When you put the light on at
night the window goes all like
mirror so nobody can see in".
I used to think that if I looked in a mirror for over 5 mins I would dissapere to Narnia!
I believed that if I looked too long in the mirror admiring myself the Devil would appear.
I used to think that if I stared into the mirror long enough you could see the faces of your past lives. Really its just your eyes getting tired and distorting what you see.
Our next door neighbour told us if you looked in a mirror after midnight you would see the devil!
