Mirror of Erised

  As Dumbledore describes, the Mirrow of Erised “shows us nothing more or less than the deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts.” Erised appropriately is “desire” spelled backwards. Harry sees he parents in the mirror and Dumbledore catches Harry sitting and staring at the mirror.

The mirror serves as a symbol of reflecting on the past, and is a lesson that a person cannot spend all day reflecting on the past and mourning what could have been, but rather a person must be active, live their life, and move on.
