As I mentioned in a previous post portals are doorways. These doorways are used by ghosts, spirits, energy, and imps, etc. to enter our world. Occult practices, such as Ouija Boards, and séances can open portals. Once a portal is open you cannot control what comes through it.

Two famous haunted places that are believed to have portals are the Bell Witch Cave in Adams, Tennessee and the White House in Washington, D.C. Note: sometimes vortex and portal are used interchangeably but these two words have different meanings.

Portals sometimes are associated with mirrors. In fact it is believed that negative energy in particular likes to use mirrors to come and go from our world. 

This is why some superstitions dictate you should never hang a mirror on an outside wall (i.e. a wall without another room connected to it) or it can become a portal. 

Another superstition dictates if a person dies in a room any mirrors in that room should be covered. It is believed if the deceased are reflected their souls will be drawn in by negative energy—specifically the devil, which prevents the soul from moving on.

I do not believe in the superstitions above but I have encountered several haunted locations that seemed to have a portal. In these places there have been multiple sightings of ghosts and more aggressive activity occurring. 

These portals were successfully closed but it took a person who is a third generation (smudger/cleanser) to do it. By the way, there is still activity at these locations but not as aggressive.
