The habitual mirror to which we piously believe possesses an insidious property: it turns the real world inside out. We and our mirror image are exactly the opposite.

When brushing with your right hand, pay attention to the hand in which your reflection holds the comb. If you are right handed then he is left handed. Write your surname, name, patronymic, go up to the mirror with this business card and make sure that you do not see yourself, and at the same time it looks like you like two drops of water. But your heart is located in the chest on the left, and in your mirror-like twin it “beats” on the right. It has a different body structure, a different arrangement of internal organs.

Since childhood, we are told that we can only see ourselves in the mirror, but in reality in the mirror we see not ourselves but our antipode. The exact opposite of an object is always difficult to distinguish from it. For example, our two hands are very similar to each other, but therefore they are called one left and the other right because they are antipodes in structure. That is why they are not compatible and the right glove can not be put on the left hand.

We adults are accustomed to our reflection, selflessly believing him. But what brings us the involuntary identification of oneself with our antipode?

Although our reflection is ethereal, but it has an image, and as in the photo. Only in the photo we see ourselves, our image and in the mirror our reflection - our complete opposite. Naturally, communicating with someone or examining the image we look in his eyes the most. The value of the human eye as a window from which the soul looks is noticed long ago Even today we use such expression as “one-on-one conversation”.

Perhaps looking in the mirror, in the eyes of our reflection, we unwittingly establish spiritual contact with our complete opposite - our antipode, and considering that we look into our eyes to ourselves, we believe in those thoughts to the desires and feelings that arise in our hearts as a result of such a silent, unconditional communication with eye to eye. Unwittingly trusting to whom we see in the mirror as to ourselves, we learn from him to love and to hate what his look dictates to us, his eyes and what is possibly opposite to our nature, our soul.

With the reflection, we advise not only choosing our clothes, hairstyle, but asking him what I am and who I am. And if the eyes of a person really serve not only for sight but also for the intuitive spiritual communication of people with each other, then the image of our ethereal antipode from the looking glass performs for us the role of a spiritual mentor who forms our "I".

Research has established that each of us meeting our gaze with our reflection in the mirror unknowingly falls into a light subhypnoid trance. Isn't this easy hypnosis to which we unconsciously expose ourselves looking in the mirror as an indicator that the reflection turns not only reality but also affects our souls? The cunning of the mirror is difficult for us to notice. Indeed, what could be more like us, more credible and at the same time more opposite than our own reflection? Although the mirror, even in the form of standing water surface, was always there, it was not always possible to explain to a person what he sees in him at all, not himself, but his complete opposite, because in order to understand this you need to have basic knowledge. Today we all know that mirror-symmetrical figures are opposite and are antipodes (in their structure). It is interesting that the very fact of the impact of a mirror on a person was noticed by people for a long time. Let us recall, for example, the legend of Narcis who fell in love with her reflection and the dead, or the tale of A.S. Pushkin, where a woman, led by her mirror image, asking him his opinion then committed a crime. “Tell me my light mirror. . . »We ask each time at our reflection having met his eyes and find the answer in his eyes. But let's not forget that we do not look into our own eyes, and we do not communicate with ourselves. After all, the exact opposite of a person is an anti-human being — an incorporeal, deceptively similar antipode from the mirror of which is not and to whom, nevertheless, we selflessly believe.

It is difficult to overestimate the role of the mirror in the formation of our "I". Having believed the deceptive similarity of our reflection and having remembered this image, we try to look and behave with these eyes so that we like “ourselves”. Not because we are confident that we see ourselves in the mirror sometimes lose peace of mind, oscillate between two opposites - between ourselves, our conscience and the look that we see every time looking in the mirror, and trying to find a compromise, reconcile the irreconcilable by force. spiritual nature, unwittingly turning into actors playing the role dictated by the spiritual essence of our antipode. Nevertheless, there is a lot of unclear, scientifically unproven in this matter. It is not proven, for example, that a spiritual contact between people is established through a gaze, it is not proved that having an image of a body opposite to ours and the spiritual essence of our reflection should be the opposite of us. And is it even possible to talk about the spiritual essence of an ethereal image? So far there are more questions than answers, but the fact that we look into our eyes with our reflection every time we get into a light hypnotic trance makes us think about this question. After all, any hypnosis, even light does not remain without consequences. What can we expect from our anti - “I” from behind the mirror?

Of course, all these discourses require a certain strain of the mind, a reappraisal of seemingly unshakable before beliefs, time for reflection. After all, to say to a person that, until now, he saw in the mirror not himself means to encroach on his “holy of holies” his visible “I” to which he was so used. And probably the best adviser here should be not only our mind but also our intuition, our heart - this unconscious but true indicator of truth.

What do modern people do for us to avoid the magnetising hypnotic view of our reflection and at the same time see ourselves, our true and not inverted image? Can we see ourselves as we really are, as those around us see? How to look into the eyes of yourself and not your opposite? How to put in order your appearance without damaging your soul? Bring in such an order that dictates us our own image and not the turned look of our antipode, which we see in the eyes of our reflection.


It turns out you can see yourself and quite simply. The mirror which does not turn out our image is shown in the picture.

As you can see, the right hand reflected in this mirror remains the right hand again. Write your name and looking in this mirror you can easily read it as usual from right to left, making sure that you now see yourself. In this mirror, our image is not turned out. Our heart is on the left and our image is also on the left. And although it is inconvenient to use this mirror at first glance, but this is just a matter of habit and after a while you will be able to freely comb your hair and put yourself in order. Wouldn't it be better to face the truth and to see oneself than to thoughtlessly take the lead of a non-existent, insubstantial lie disguised as truth?
