She was able to perceive information that was normally hidden from many other average people’s senses. While she was standing in the mirror, she developed her clairvoyance in a dreamy but extremely aware state, till she started to see images forming that sent messages and opened up her third eye. She would chant softly, “Mirror, mirror, reveal to me. Mirror, mirror, let me see. I will follow your lead, so shall it be.” This was a special mirror, not the same one that she used for brushing her teeth. She practiced catoptromancy using her mirror to foresee future events and gain insight. She placed the mirror under her pillow at night to instigate dreams of those she considered might turn out to be her future lovers, and she also used this method to find out when a person would recover from sickness.
She would often catch a glimpse of a spirit, standing behind her while she was looking into her mirror, one that had become trapped inside of the mirror and was unable to return to its body. Spirits are energy, and they are not able to see themselves in mirrors. She was the real deal, not just a person with a funny face that used smoke and mirrors to trick people, but many people thought that she was daffy. She was a big fan of hors d’oeuvres and at parties, she would often say, “Bring me the cheese please.” If someone would drop the serving tray, she would always call the three-second rule and declare it not to be a complete loss, as food was something to be valued. She was known to go off on a tangent, because she was once left standing at the alter by a groom who engaged in a caprice action, but at least she enjoyed the ride.
