There are many ways to obtain the same result in spirit communication, as many roads will take you to the same destination. Using the psychomanteum is one way to reach out to the spirit world. It is a device to help a person communicate with the other side, including departed loved ones, pets and spirit guides. The prophet Nostradamus used a similar reflective device to experience out-of-body travels into the future as indicated in Dr. Raymond Moody’s book.
Typically, the psychomanteum is an enclosed structure or chamber made of black cloth or wood, with a chair on one side facing a mirror on the other side. Some people also use a red darkroom light. A person sits in the chair gazing into the mirror, while relaxing enough to achieve a light trance state. In this altered state of consciousness it is easier for one to see visions reflected in the mirror.

With some patience and persistence psychic images may appear to you when using this device. One of the first signs may be that the mirror will become cloudy, or darker, or even lighter. People also hear sounds or words spoken, or even experience smells.
It is a good idea to have some questions you may like to ask spirit before you enter into the trance state. It’s also a good idea to be prepared for any experience. Just let it come; trust and believe that whatever happens will be for your highest and best good. After all spirit loves us and wants to communicate with us. The more you can relax into a light trance state and just let the process take its own course, the better the results. Trust and believe that it will happen.
Sometime you may feel spirit. They may also talk to you outside your head, or it can come like a thought inside your mind. It can sound like the person’s voice, or it can sound like your own. Either way is fine. Not one way is better, as long as you trust and believe.
It is common for spirits to touch someone on the face. It feels like walking through cob webs. Or they may lightly touch the crown of the head; it feels like bugs crawling. Spirit just wants to let us know they are with us. Other times they may come with a smell that you would recognize as their smell, or a smell of a particular flower they especially liked, such as a gardenia. For a male it could be their favorite after shave or cologne, for a woman her signature perfume. It is also not unusual for a person to feel as if they themselves have entered the mirror, or the spirit may actually come out for a visit with the person.
The mirror gazing procedure termed the “psychomanteum” … was designed to facilitate reunion experiences with deceased individuals, as a means of addressing the feelings surrounding bereavement ~ Alejandro Parra & Jorge Villanueva
However, your experience of the session is typically very individual. It is always obvious when the experience has started and when it is finished. Spirit knows when it’s time to exit, so don’t ask for more at that sitting – there is always another time. Dr. Moody suggests keeping records of all your experiences, writing or recording as much detail as possible.
The most important thing to remember when using the psychomanteum is to relax, relax, relax. Always try to remain calm and know that whatever transpires, you are okay. It has been my experience that when one tries to hard or force things you get the least results. So let go, relax and let Spirit come through in whatever way it chooses. It makes the experience a lot easier on both you and spirit.
