I don't remember exactly how she expressed it, but her warning was that you can accidentally put yourself into a dissociative state by looking in the mirror for too long, too closely. And she was right. I later read about it in the context of psychology--people can do the same thing with candle gazing, it's a kind of self hypnosis.

    Because of her religious beliefs, my grandmother thought it was a state that could bring the unwanted attention of spiritual beings. That was the point of the warning. The timing of the warning was based on her experience that deep mirror gazing is something a person may fall into when their identity is shifting, trying to get a handle on who they are amid the flux--especially during the shift from childhood to adulthood.

    How old are you, if you don't mind my asking, Elson?

    Your grandmother must have had some long years around the block to have been aware be it in some form or another though it is an very old practice. Not very many young to middle age know anything of it other than the crystal balls ect.
