- Breaking a mirror will give you seven years of bad luck.
We all know this, but what can you do about it?
If you've recently broken a mirror
or just want to be prepared, I have seven fast techniques
that will save your soul.
Keep in mind these should be used as quickly as possible
before your luck runs out.
Hi, I'm Krista, Mirror Geek with TwoWayMirrors.
Here's the list--
First, you could throw salt over your left shoulder
as soon as possible into the devil who lurks there.
According to the Morton Salt website,
the French throw a little behind them
to hit them in the eyeball.
This will buy you some time to crawl under a table
and come out the opposite side.
Tip number two.
Without hesitation, spin around three times counterclockwise.
One, two, three.
Careful not to do this unless you've just
broken a mirror, as doing so on its own brings you bad luck.
Do it after breaking a mirror so you don't confuse the spirits.
Tip number three.
Grind the mirror shards into a fine powder.
This prevents more reflections from being
viewed from the broken mirror.
Tip number four.
Reuse the glass in a craft project.
The key is to pretend that it wasn't an accident.
Tip number five.
Here's a tip that works if you have a bit more time
and everything else has failed.
First, you have to gather the broken pieces,
then toss them into a south-running stream.
It sounds weird.
This will wash away the bad luck in only seven hours instead
of seven years.
Not a bad deal, if you ask me.
Tip number six.
Use flames to blacken the mirror fragments,
then bury them exactly one year later.
Unfortunately, you still have one year of bad luck
Tip number seven.
Bury the pieces very far into the ground
where the spirits can't find them.
Best to do this at night so your reflection
can't be taken with them.
How do you know if it's worked?
Well if you can't see your reflection in a mirror anymore,
it's too late.
Having a lucky charm such as a horseshoe or a four-leaf clover
So why is it seven years and not just three or four?
This dates way back to Roman times,
where they believed it took seven years for a soul
to renew itself.
The myth itself dates back much further.
The oldest mirrors we know date back to Anatolia in 6,000 BC.
Now I want to hear from you.
