Our friend, Spiritwind, though not a witch, had become a student of shamanism. As such, we decided to introduce him to the enjoyment of mirroring. He took to the practice very easily, but he also has a very unusual ability. When he mirrors, each eye can view separate aspects of the same incarnation with each or he can focus them together at the same time and see someone completely different who has some relation to the first person viewed.
For example, once, when he mirrored, the view with his right eye was that of a Native American male in his late 20s or early 30s without any special dressings, his face is clean and his long hair is flowing straight back down off his head. When he looked though his left eye he saw the same Native American male with his hair parted on the left and swept over to the right side of his head. There were feathers hanging down from his hair. He was, obviously, a warrior in full paint and the descriptions Spiritwind gave of the pattern of the war paint are exacting in the locations and shapes he used in different shades on his face and body. When he looked down, he saw the beaded leathers that he wore.
When he looked through both eyes he saw an outline of a Civil War era uniform from the bottom of the pants leg and then the vision seemed to travel up the body, he saw dark curly hair on the collar and the face was fuzzy or blurry.
We had not been able to figure it out in the beginning, then I hypothesized that the second vision, using both eyes, was allowing him to see the one who killed the warrior from the vantage point of the warrior’s own vision. Why else would the vision start at the feet? It did not do that otherwise for other viewings, at least not as he described the angle, for the view through either eye separately. In addition, the fact that the face seemed fuzzy and could not be cleared even when he focused seemed to support this theory. Was this because the warrior’s strength and eyesight was fading as he lay dying? We finally decided that it must be vague due to his death, or perhaps because “all you whites look the same to us” as one of my Abenaki friends used to say.
I asked Spiritwind to try to use some other methods and mirror deeper to see if I might be correct. What do you think?
