seeing past life

I've always heard that if you are in a pitch black room and you stare into a mirror, you will see death/demons. My Aunt told me, that when she was young she accidently done this(power failure while she was in the bathroom) but kept on looking. Once she got past all the visions of demons, she was seeing her past lives.

Mirrors creep me out sometimes - usually when it's dark, but also in the day sometimes if it is very quiet and no-one else is around. I heard also that mirrors used to be covered with a curtain or cloth at night. I also had a couple of scary aunts when I was a kid that told me stories to scare me and it worked! When I moved house, for years I did not keep a mirror in my room, and used the other mirrors in the bathroom, etc. Now I keep a small one in my room which can rotate sideways and upwards like a shaving mirror. It sits on my desk, behind my monitor - with the reflective part above the screen (it is on a stalk). Unless I am using it, I angle it away so I can only see the ceiling reflected in it. Sometimes I have kept it facing directly at me, with the lights out at night but there is always light from the monitor etc keeping it from being pitch black. I will normally angle it away after about an hour and I never stare into it for longer than a second or so. The idea of staring into it scares me. I had stared into a mirror during daylight before for over twenty minutes and it didn't scare me.
