According to his beliefs, with the help of mirrors, the otherworldly energy enters our world. In humans, it can cause various mental disorders that are not complete without hallucinations and visions. Accidentally breaking such a thing, you risk incurring a whole host of problems.
It is impossible to look at the broken surface of the mirror - they are capable of taking away human vitality. You can list the consequences that await the owners after the split amalgam:
- After the mirrors broke, the family for seven years may be plagued by various misfortunes, illnesses, it is possible that some family member will die long before the end of his life span.
- If the integrity of mirrors is violated, according to beliefs, otherworldly entities can penetrate into our world, whose attitude towards human beings is difficult to predict.
- If a thing is broken into an odd number of pieces, this may portend a wedding.
- Crashing, the mirror releases and dispels the negative accumulated inside.
- If a sick person often looks at the mirror for a long time, it absorbs a lot of negativity. Such a thing should be destroyed, and a person should look into a new one, setting himself up in a positive way.

What to do if something breaks at home
Not all broken items bring trouble and problems. For example, a broken cup or other dishes can bring happiness, if it happened at a wedding. Sometimes guests even do it on purpose. There are many wedding customs that are associated with breaking dishes - the bride can split the earthen pot at the threshold of the groom's house, newlyweds drain champagne glasses, then break them - “for luck”.

- Splinters cover a piece of dark linen - so that they would not affect your face.
- Collect the pieces, protecting hands with gloves or with a towel. When performing actions with bare hands there is a risk to attract bad energy to oneself or to cut oneself, which is also not particularly pleasant.
- Take a wet rag and remove the remaining fragments. Throw everything away immediately.
- To prevent the splinters from harm, they are packed and thrown into a river, facing the stream. Broom, which the fragments were swept up, carried to the street. It must be thrown three times - so that, falling, he would touch the ground each time.
- It is also recommended to read the prayer "Our Father" before cleaning the glass. To the place where the mirror had hung before, hang up a new one in exchange.
