Samhain is the night when the veil between worlds is thinnest. It is a good time to communicate with those who have past away, using a mirror. You will need a large mirror for this. It ought to be big enough to show your whole face at once, and preferably part of your upper body.
At least three days before Samhain, cover the mirror. If possible, fast all day on October 31. If you smoke refain from smoking after sunset.
At midnight, sit or stand before the mirror. Have a small bowl or cup of salt water close to hand. Uncover the mirror, and, several times, softly call the name of the person you wish to contact. Concentrate. After a while you may feel contact with that person, and can speak to him or her and ask questions. You can also invoke your younger or older self with this method. When you are done, thank the person, or yourself, say farewell, then dip your fingers in the salt water and draw a pentagram on the mirror to seal the veil. If at any time the communication becomes troublesome, you can break contact in this manner also.
