The only time I can recall trying to look in a mirror in an LD, I couldn't see much of anything because it looked like it was foggy... I could only see part of my body if I was really close to it. In my NDs, mirrors usually show some variation of my reflection... sometimes they show a normal reflection, while other times, it's distorted. I've never seen anything particularly frightening in a mirror, at any rate.

I rarely pass mirrors in dreams, but I remember a dream where I was in front of the mirror and the reflection of me showed someone else. I did an RC then examined myself, its fun to look on yourself on a mirror lachgroen

nervous that depends how strong your psychic mind is. And I also think that some are frightened, others not siiw

It has never worked for me because my brain cannot process the fact the mirror isn't solid anymore. When I teleport though I get blackness too...

I've tried going through mirrors in about 3 of my LDs, every time I just bump into it... neutral

I encountered this problem the first time I tried this, so I closed my eyes and tried to feel my fingers move through the glass like it were liquid. Eventually it worked and I was able to absorb my full body into the mirror. Though it is a bit cold, and I wouldn't recommend it for the claustrophobic/hydrophobic, it was a fairly interesting experience. grin

If anyone was curious, I have tried this several times since my first attempt, with much better results than the first time. No more LD attempts while thinking of silent hill for me. overspannen

The one-time I went through a mirror in a LD I performed a back-flip to jump in it and ended up in darkness, and then a picture began to form, of a lady with purple hair and melancholic face standing in a woods. (tried finding a purple smiley to go with this and found this--> cookiemonster and this blauw The last one is better)

I've gone through a mirror twice. The first time, I went straight through it as if it were a painting in Super Mario 64, but I just ended up back in my bathroom. I tried it again the next time I got a lucid dream and this time the mirror shattered and I still ended up right back in my bathroom. Can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I have one recorded dream of where I went through a mirror, around 1999, and it was just this great void. Pure nothingness.

Mirrors are very liquidy in my dreams. The one I went all the way through I ended up in some little shop.

This is one of the things I haven't done yet and wanting to, go through a mirror. In my next LD I will. Hopefully this will be before the next LC quest!

When the subject of going through mirrors comes up, it reminds me of how I felt when I first heard about Lucid Dreaming. ^^

I've used mirrors when lucid with the intent to share a dream. Id think of who I want to connect with, then leap forward into the reflective abyss. It was interesting... If anyone has the experience of sharing a dream it be awesome to hear it. Ive tried a bunch of times with limited success.

I remember always wanting to go through the mirror in my dreams. This one time I had the chance too. First I put my hand through it, it felt really nice the liquidy metallic swished around, I pulled something back from the other side..it was some old vase then I decided to go in with my full body..all I remember was darkness and then I lose my lucidity. Wasn't really happy with the result. neutral

I always thought about trying again, but then I get an unpleasant feeling that something scary would happen like Strickens silent hill nightmare overspannen .
