If you look at the smudge marks just right, you will be able to make out the face of the old sea captain staring back at you. These ghostly images are much easier to see when someone points out which specific smudge marks represent the various parts of the face.
Mirrors have been associated with spirituality and the supernatural for hundreds of years. Some people believe that mirrors can serve as a doorway to other dimensions. People even cover their mirrors up at night to prevent spirits from crossing through. Many psychic mediums believe that if they light a candle in front of a mirror, they will be able to summon spirits from the other side.
There are also people who believe that mirrors have a connection to the soul. These individuals say that our souls can project out of the body and onto the mirror as a reflection. Certain cultures believe that when you break a mirror, you may also break your soul, which will often result in bad luck.
