Story Of Ghostly Mirror
come in all sorts of size and shapes. They can by all means be used as reflective
tools for us to look at ourselves. Other than that the internal decorators make
use of mirrors to enhance space visual effects such that a narrow shop space
would look much wider. This can be done by merely installing two pieces of
mirrors facing each other. By doing so, a few customers may give the visual
impression that the shop is full with customers.
a normal household has installed a large mirror in the living room, then the
room would appear to be a little gloomy and chill. In the perspective of Feng
Shui, this condition will create discord amongst the family members. In a more
scientific explanation; if one awakes in the middle of the night and he/she may
get a shock by his/her own ghostly reflection. This is especially true if the
mirror is placed directly opposite to the bed, a weak spirit pregnant lady may
have higher chances of getting miscarriage.
also being used by occultists all over the world. In the west, the magicians
use mirrors; especially the black mirror as a scrying or spirit communication tool
in lieu of the crystal ball. On the other hand, the eastern occultists treated
mirror as a gateway for spirits to enter and exit our world. So it is not a

This is a
ghost story told to me by a Hong Kong friend about ghostly sightings in a
police station somewhere in the mid 90’s. It was said that a police station has
renovated their lift facilities and installed mirrors on all 4 sides of lift
compartments including the sliding lift door to facilitate the police officers
to check on their attires before going out of the police station. One day, a
visiting British officer came to the police station and as he entered the lift;
he saw a figure with blurred face features was standing behind him in mirror
reflection. But when this officer turned his head, he saw no one was there; he
was alone in the lift.
stepping out from the lift, he quietly pulled his Hong Kong colleague and asked
him about the ghostly sightings. It then transpired that the British officer
was not the only one who has saw this ghostly figure; there were some reports
of policemen and policewomen saw the same apparition as well. Due to the fear
of being charged with spreading rumors, eye witnesses just kept silent.
Kong is a pretty small area and soon the news spread like wild fire. The head
finally decided to remove all the mirrors from the lifts to put a halt to curious
visitors and the further propagation of ghost stories. After all, police
station is a law enforcing agency and not a haunted house.
I asked my
pal if he think the spirit is still there. This is the answer he gave me:
you honestly: I think they are not solving the issue right. The spirit is still
there even they removed all of the mirrors. But as to whether the story has any
foundation on it, let’s just treat it as a ghost story.”
