Broken Mirror

It is said that when you break a mirror, your cosmic reparation is to endure seven years of bad luck, unless you can find a way to counteract the negative effects. The source of the " break a mirror and face seven years bad luck" superstition can be traced back to the Romans. The Romans, Greek, Chinese, African and Indian civilizations thought that a mirror had power to take part of a person's soul. If the user of a mirror were to break it, the person's soul would be trapped inside the mirror. A broken mirror created a broken soul, which in turn lead to the broken health of the unfortunate user. The Romans also believed that a person's physical body renewed itself every seven years, so under that criteria it would take seven years before the user's soul would be fully restored. Up until then, life for a mirror breaker would be one long string of unfortunate events, since he or she no longer had a healthy soul to ward off spiritual evildoers.
