“When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations” ~ David Icke
When you get up and look in the mirror what do you see? When you pass by your own reflection how does it make you feel? Do you see someone you recognize? Someone you like? Someone you care about and trust?
The reflection in the mirror is how you see yourself. It not only reflects your outer self, your inner self shines through. Notice your eyes, is there a sparkle? So much is conveyed through our eyes as they are the portal to our soul. At the deepest level, our soul is where we feel love and happiness. It’s where we connect with ourselves and others.
Concentrate on how you feel when you look into your eyes. Do you like the person staring back at you? I’m not talking about liking the body that’s carrying you or the crazy morning hair framing your face, I’m only asking that you stare directly into your eyes, into your soul – how does that make you feel?
Are you connected with yourself? There are many things in life that cause us to second guess ourselves, question our decisions or to wonder if we should be or do something different than we are. You may look into your eyes and feel like you should have done this or said that or you need this or that to feel complete or even that you’re not enough in some aspect.
Talk to that reflection in the mirror– what is your heart saying to you. Sometimes we hear something that we don’t necessarily want to listen to. Is your heart, your soul, telling you what you need, but you’re having a hard time listening because of what others might think, how you might feel going through the process. Are you trying to live up to the expectations of others?
Remember, it’s not fault of the mirror if you don’t like your reflection. Have an honest conversation with the person in the mirror. Listen to what he or she has to say, it comes from deep within. This is the person you need to live with all your life, the only person who will truly be with you forever, so make sure you can live with that person. Practice positive self-talk, and learn to love yourself first. All relationships start within; whether that is a relationship with another person, money, “luck”, health or anything else, the relationship you have with yourself has a strong effect on every other relationship you have, so make it a good one.
My hope for you is when you look in the mirror, you can look yourself in the eye and know that you’re being true to you and you genuinely like the person staring back at you.
