Breaking A Mirror

Breaking a Mirror
Kevin Matheny

The ancient Romans believed that human life renewed itself in 7-year cycles (mirroring the cycles of the moon). A reflection was believed to be someones soul. If that reflection got shattered then so did the next seven years of someones life. That would mean that for the next seven years that person would have constant bad luck. It is also believed that infants could trap them and stunt their growth. Plus, they could take their innocent souls. Once you break a mirror it can be a tough process to counteract the negative effects. In addition, it is believed that a mirror has the power to confiscate part of the user's soul. If the user's reflected image became distorted in any way, this could mean a corruption of his or her soul. SO if the mirror was then broken the users soul would be trapped. After breaking a mirror, since the pieces of the mirror can still reflect the corrupted soul, the entire mirror should be ground into dust. Afterwards, you have to bury the pieces of the mirror under a tree during a full moon.
