      Cool Mirrors

      Im going to start off by saying that ive had a fear of mirrors since i was a child but recently I started to understand "fear" alot better. I have summed it up to being a misinterpretation of emotions and feelings when your dreaming you expecerince reality without the 5 filters of physical reality such as smell sight hearing feel and taste. So the emotional feed back you get from the dream is "unknown' and by nature we humans fear the unknown. With that knowledge i have become virtually fearless the past couple weeks and my life has been changing in positive ways. The other night i made it a point that i was going to face my fears of mirrors by staring one down in my lucid dream and i did just that and more. I had a lucid dream saw myself in the mirror and to my suprise i was not horribly disfigured or anything like that i just had blackness where my eyes should have been i then ran full speed into the mirror and ended up in a black room on the other side i turned around and saw the room i came from and i could see my self on the other side too i woke up after passing back through to where i came from. So i was wondering if anyone here has had any experinces with mirrors they are fascinating to me now because they are a reflection of our reality and even more intresting when your in a dream reality and reflecting that world.

      Nice

      I have a minor discomfort about mirrors in dreams. I'd like to do what you're doing and play with mirrors in lucids.

      Hi Jvanvick and welcome to DV! I felt inspired to respond to your query at the end there as a welcome to you and because I have some fond memories of mirrors in dreams. In general I see a decent approximation of myself in the mirror but not much else in the mirror. When I see something starkly different in a mirror in a non-lucid dream (I have been a different race), it makes me lucid, or if the reflection is slightly different it may bring me up to semi-lucid or nudge me on to notice something else that eventually makes me lucid (hairstyle was quite different in a recent one). The different race one was very trippy but I wish it would happen more often (since it such a great dream sign). I have never felt the desire to walk into a mirror but I do enjoy playing around in front of mirrors in lucid dreams from time to time. Usually something is off in my looks, age, or the mirroring of my movements. I got disco music starting to play while looking in the mirror recently and some minor disco light effects. In another I could feel my sleep mask moved up to my forehead but saw no sleep mask in the mirror. In one of my favorite LD's I was rediscovering that childhood amazement of simple things and saw part of my reflection that showed me looking like a child (only lower half of body was visible and my genitalia was child size) which I took later as some kind of representation of my childhood self. There were a number of toys and what not in this very unusual dream locale that I arrived at after a dream fade.

      I also once had a dream in which I looked in a mirror and was a different race. In that dream, I just narrowly missed getting lucid (I did an RC but still didn't become lucid). That's the only dream I can remember with a mirror in it.

      I like dreaming with mirrors. When i have a succesfull WILD, my dream always starts with me in bed (kinda like an OBE experience). Then, i get out of bed and go to the bathroom to look at the mirror. It's interesting what i see. It's always a different me. I already saw an older me, a younger me, a more fit and handsome me, an uglier me... Once i was dressed like a medieval joker, in another dream i was evil-like (with red eyes and vampire teeth).
      And my mirror-self is like another person because it's not doing the same gestures as me. Most of the dreams i talk to my reflected self. I ask for advice and all.
      And in a most recent one i entered a mirror.

      I spent a long period of time doing most of my meditation in front of a mirror, mainly open-eye. That might be relevant for why this seems to happen. Whenever I am dreaming, lucid or non-lucid, and I wonder about my appearance, an image of myself instantly appears in front of me as though I was looking in a mirror. The image is always very clear and crisp, sometimes more so than anything else in the dream. I never have to look for a mirror, this just happens automatically, although I do still come across them from time to time in my dreams all the same.

      Sometimes I look very much like me, sometimes I look like a completely different person. I've had the ghoulish face-melting effect occur in a dream, but because I was already accustomed to this from waking mirror meditation, it didn't phase me in the slightest and I just carried on with what I was doing. The most recent dream I had, my reflection didn't have a head. I thought it was hilarious, and started trying to angle myself to see if I could look down my own neck. A DC passed by and stopped with a look of abject confusion on its face and asked me what I was doing. 'I don't have a head, it's so weird!' I tell them, but when I look back, my head has returned. 'Oh.' I'm kind of disappointed.

      My dreaming self is weird. I've never tried to go through a mirror though. I think I'll have to add this to the list and report back with what I find

      When i go through mirrors, most of the times, the "other side" is not the reflection of where i was. And my "reflected self" acts like another person as he makes way for me to pass through.
      In a recent lucid dream, i'm on an elevator with a mirror on the side. I pass through it and i find a tiny room with lots of tools and equipment. It's like there was a work room for the man who works in the building.

      Only very rarely will my reflection look anything like myself. Mostly I look like a much younger and thinner man with curly brown hair (mine is actually very straight, and blond), a happy and relaxed face. Once, however, I looked like a plump, brutish stone age man with distinctly limited mental capacity. (But still quite happy looking, and with brown curly hair).

      In the most macabre version to date, my head was actually rendered quite faithful to physical reality, but my torso was missing - all that was visible was my spine. Mwa ha ha!

      In my case moving through mirrors always leads to a completely unrelated scene.
      So ... is this the real universe, or is it just a preliminary study?
