Suddenly, the Mirror Breaks

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’ve got seven fast techniques that can 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:

  1. 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 him in the eyeball. This will buy you some time to crawl under a table and come out the opposite side.
  2. Without hesitation, spin around three times counter clockwise. [cut to whip scene drone footage] Careful not to do this unless you’ve just broken a mirror, as doing so on it’s own brings you bad luck itself. Doing it after breaking a mirror is to confuse the spirits.
  3. Grind the mirror shards into a fine powder. This prevents more reflections from being viewed in the broken mirror. 
  4. Reuse the glass in a craft project. Pretend it wasn’t an accident. 
  5. Here’s a tip that works if you have a bit more time, and all else has failed. Toss the pieces into a south running stream. This will wash away the bad luck in only seven HOURS instead of seven years. Not a bad deal if you ask me.
  6. Use flames to blacken the mirror fragments, then bury them exactly one year later. Unfortunately, you’ll still have one year of bad luck until then.
  7. Take a single piece of the broken mirror and touch it to a tombstone. This works immediately to lift the curse.
  8. 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 it’s worked? If you can’t see your reflection in a mirror anymore, it’s too late. Having a lucky charm such as a horseshoe or 4 leaf clover may help.

So why is it seven years, and not just three or four? It dates way back to Roman times, when they believed it took seven years for a soul to renew itself. The myth itself dates back much further, the oldest mirrors we know of date back to Anatolia in 6,000 BC. 

Do you have any other tips with remedy bad luck? Let me know about it in the comments below!

    1. Please help, I threw my dogs toy at my mirror and cracked it on the bottom, does this still count as broken? If so, I did the salt and table and the counterclockwise, please I’m so scared. Am I going to be okay? How do I reverse all 7 years? Please I’m really scared

  1. I threw salt and crawled under a table to the other side but idk what to do with the mirror should I bury it too?

    1. What if I broke someone else’s mirror? Will they receive the bad luck? I don’t want them to receive bad luck.

  2. we found out our side mirror of motorbike outside the house broke because of coconut drop into my side mirror of my motorbike.. do you think we can still have a bad luck even were not the one who break it?

  3. I broke a mirror the other day I’m going to touch a piece of it on a tombstone I didn’t see it I cleaning and stepped on it

  4. Help, I broke/cracked my Walmart mirror. I did the salt and table and the counter clockwise. My mom put the mirror outside, what do I do? Am I okay now? I don’t understand but I’m really scared

  5. I always carry a compact mirror in my purse for make up and such. I went to use it and it was broken!! I didn’t know and I looked at it SMH. How can I dispose of it so I am free of negative energy and bad luck??? I have not looked,used or touched it since.

  6. well seven years bad luck could also date back to the fact that exactly 7 years from when you broke the mirror all of your cells will umhacke regenerated so you’ll basically be in a body that never broke a mirror 🙂

  7. Ok, idk if I broke the mirror and I did the salt trick and went under that table, what if I didn’t break the mirror and I did the trick is that bad luck please answer me I’m super scared! 😬😭

  8. My partner broke two different mirrors in our home while me and him were arguing on two different occasions. One small light up one and a big full body length mirror. They both were mine. I didn’t break either of them but I feel like we both have bad luck. He broke the small light up mirror one first back on my birthday which was in November of 2019. 3 months later I miscarried at 8 weeks. Then he broke the full length mirror a month or two later. Soon after that we found out his great aunt died. I honestly don’t know what to do. The small light up mirror he threw away without doing anything to fix it, but the full length one I for some reason tried to glue a plastic bag over it so none of the small pieces would fall out since the majority of it was big pieces that didn’t fall out of the mirror and I didn’t have tape to tape it back at the time. I don’t want to throw the big mirror away because I’m worried we’ll have worst luck then. I did the salt trick on July 27th of 2020 this year. I want to respect the souls in the mirror. What should I do??

  9. I accidentally broke a mirror when I’m attempting to remove it from its plastic frame. I did not thought of any bad luck happening. I pasted and painted the broken part and it ends up looking aesthetic. Since I wanted to make sure, I just visited this site. I’m safe, surely speaking.

  10. I accidentally broke a mirror that was in a skip without knowing about the curse my mum later told me about the curse. The mirror is buried over in the skip. I have done the salt thing and crawled under a table and spun around three rimes will I be okay. Please reply.
