    You can work with mirrors for different purposes, but the most popular reasons are for healing the spirit or manifesting goals. A simple place to start with mirror work is to gaze into the glass and repeat an affirmation or round of mantras, saying each one a set number of times.
    These kinds of experiences can allow you to reprogram your mind to focus on positive intentions, creating a more harmonious life. You can also use mirror work techniques to see auras and for deep meditation, or for training yourself to experience astral projection. Many people like to journal their experiences to examine how they feel and what they notice.
    In addition, you can use a mirror to radiate love, light, protection and healing into your living space through its position in a room (in the same way that you might use a crystal). Many spiritualists also use mirrors to reflect away negative energy and boost their magic in addition to mirror work for personal development.
