Your Personal Mirror
Have you ever stopped and thought about what your life experiences
and relationships are telling you, about you?
We know that we
are the co-creator of our life. We know that what we hold onto
inside reflects itself outside. Think about it. Everyday of your
life you have a fluid mirror of yourself and your life, if you take
the time to notice and consider.
Let’s take a few examples. A
colleague of mine told me recently that ironically his car kept
needing a brake job - several times over the course of 1.5 years.
I asked what that told him about himself. He considered this, and
then said “I guess I need to put on the brakes and slow down, as I
am heading for a collision course.” He went on to share his possible
collision course. I alternatively told him that for some odd reason
I kept running out of gas – at least 4 times in less than 1 year! My
consideration was that deep inside of me I held the thought that I
couldn’t keep up – energy wise and idea wise. I told him that I felt
that I was out of steam (a` la gas). These incidents forced me to
look at my own thoughts and shift them.
Here are some more
examples. Ruth is experiencing a stagnant period – like a limbo.
This dynamic has been in place for almost 2 years, despite positive
thoughts to the contrary. In consideration, she said that she felt
trapped, in a vise, and unable to move forward. This thought played
it self out in her life experience.
Jane experiences a
controlling neighbor that refuses to back off in telling her exactly
how her yard and landscaping should be done. It is continuous,
despite positive relationships with all other neighbors. In
consideration, Jane felt that maybe she still wanted things in her
life to happen the way she wanted them to. That she was not open to
things working out another way. Her neighbor’s control told her
something about an aspect of herself.
Robert has been trying
to sell some real estate for an unusually long time. When
exploring what this said about him, he stated, “I guess I feel that
I cannot move forward with my desired new career until this sells.
Maybe I should just move forward anyway.” Once Robert focused on his
new career with fervor, the sale happened.
getting speeding tickets. They have occurred because she was
daydreaming, talking on the phone, etc. Is her message to slow down
and be more present in her life?
What do all these examples
have in common?
Our thoughts and emotions play themselves out in
our life and relationships.
All teach us something about
ourselves. Possibly something that needs to or can be changed.
All can be changed by shifting the foundational (conscious or
subconscious) thought that we are holding on to.
decided to consciously start viewing my life and
relationships as my
mirror, my helpful mirror. If there is a pattern, a dynamic or a
relationship that is not what I would choose – I now stop and look
into the mirror for the reflection of me. How am I causing the
dynamic? What am I holding onto that I am not conscious of? What
does this person tell me about myself?
Once you are
open to interacting with the mirror of your life, the universe can
send you eloquent messages.
As I walked my dog recently, I
looked out over a beautiful pond with a dock. The stillness of the
scene in the early morning was striking. I told the Universe that I
was open to receive information from my experiences today and to let
it unfold. As I journeyed on, my little dog kept going off the path
and into areas that had interesting smells. After several times of
doing this, she got two big burrs stuck in her paw, and couldn’t
walk. As I bent down to remove the burrs I said to her, “See what
happens when you don’t stay on the path?”
She stayed on the path
after that. Later when we left the shade and entered the sunny part
of the walk, she started to over heat. I noticed this and bent down
to pick her up, and I said, “Don’t worry, I will always be here to
help.” In an instant, I realized the interaction was a mirror for
me. “Don’t worry. When you stay on your path, God and the Universe
will help you.” It was simple eloquence, and it was definitely
relevant to me.
Start paying attention to your daily
experiences and interactions. Open yourself up for what the
universe gives you. Take the time to consider what is mirrored for
you. Take advantage of something that is perfectly tailored for you!
