Hexenspiegel: The Witches’ Protection Mirror

A hexenspiegel is a small mirror used as a protective charm to reflect and return negative energy to the sender. These mirrors can be placed in the house or worn as jewelries. Since ancient times the hexenspiegel has been used as an important tool for defense and protection against dark arts. Mirrors made of polished pieces of gold or silver, sometimes also copper were used to reflect evil intentions back to the sender. The more the bad person struggles to send more and more negativity, the more it reflects to him. 

The hexenspiegel come in two forms. The first one is a clear mirror while the other is a clear mirror which has been sanded lightly in order to make it less opaque and less reflective. These mirrors provide full protection against negative energy. The hexenspiegel reflects the incoming negative energy three times. Besides, when a witch tries to cast an evil spell on someone who owns a hexenspiegel, she is often warned by the mirror to steer clear but if she decides to continue with the spell then it would reflect the evil sent.

Do you feel like there is an evil eye monitoring you? Do you often experience bad luck, failure and ill health?  Then you need to cleanse and protect your aura using this mirror. Any less sophisticated mirror can be transformed into your magical hexenspiegel just ensure that the mirror is made of highly polished metal and the purer the better.

In any specialized store or glassware, you can find many sophisticated mirrors but what you would need is a simple mirror. A pure squared glass mirror of about fifty centimeters per side would be okay.
