Every moment there is an opportunity for us to discover more about ourselves by accepting that the world is a reflection of who we are.
Imagine the world and its content of people, places and things have all been created as a mirror for you to see your self. For example, when some person or a situation triggers a reaction in you, rather than project your response on that person or situation, can you embrace the fact that this scenario is a mirror for you to go inside yourself and investigate what is really triggering the emotion you are feeling?
We can keep our life simple by utilizing the mirror approach in our life by paying attention to our own feelings and reactions. We cannot change others, nor is it our role to do so, but we can change the way we choose to interact with any life situation that comes our way by taking responsibility for our own feelings.
When we investigate why we are sad, angry, offended , frightened or any other emotion that may arise and then tell the truth to our self, a sense of peace arises. Take a moment to recall a situation in your life when you were holding someone else accountable for the way you felt or for something that happened or didn’t happen in your life. What would have been different if you accepted the scenario as a mirror of who you are? What was it asking of you?
Being aware of the mirror effect throughout life helps us to be conscious of our thoughts, feelings and actions by simply asking the question ‘what is this situation reflecting to me?’ Sometimes situations are asking us to release judgement, be compassionate, meet our fears, honor ourselves, to stop and be still or simply asking us to keep our hearts open and love ourselves and others. The mirror effect can be a powerful tool for self inquiry.
The answers you are always seeking are not outside of who you are they are closer than you think. Make a commitment to bring awareness into your life today and discover the answers that rest within the home of your own heart.
Honor your spirit and walk towards the journey your heart desires.
