When we gaze into the mirror, what do we truly see? The mirror holds the power to reflect our deepest truths. It is a call for us to take a step back and observe ourselves without judgment. With courage, we can look within and see ourselves with unconditional love, challenging the limiting beliefs we hold about ourselves.
Often, instead of embracing our reflections, we push back and try to forcefully change what we see. But time teaches us that there is immense wisdom in stepping back and listening to the whispers of love amidst the cacophony of disappointment and malice.
Look closely, for all around us are signs of love and affection from a benevolent universe. Learning to follow those reflections sets our path toward our purpose or mission, whatever that is for each of us.
Romans 8:28 TPTSo we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together for good, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.
During my life coaching training, I encountered a powerful exercise that was one of the transformative tool in my life. It involved standing before a full-length mirror for 20 minutes and smiling at myself. Initially, it felt strange, but as I persisted, I experienced a profound shift. I began to be open to the true essence of the being that I am.
Inspired by this exercise, I encouraged my volunteers to undertake the same practice. While most hesitated, one courageous woman took the leap. She had recently discovered her husband's infidelity, endured a messy divorce, and faced blame from her daughter for the family's breakup. In our initial session, she wept, feeling utterly broken. But as she embarked on the mirror exercise, everything changed.
At our next session, she radiated a newfound confidence and joy. She explained that, while smiling at herself, she discovered a deep love for the person standing before her. Empowered by this self-love, she embarked on a journey of healing herself and mending her relationship with her daughter. She now encourages her friends to embrace this transformative practice, even if they think she has lost her mind. For her, it was a game-changer.
Will you do this? I dare you! If you don't take the chance, how will you know.
It is time for us all to embrace our magnificence! Let go of the questions that plague us: What's wrong with me? What did I do to deserve this? Why is this happening to me? There is nothing wrong with us. We are not broken. It is time to release the belief that we are inadequate.
Everything is beautiful; I am calm, Loving and fully present
We can choose to be courageous individuals who are willing to live from the center of our being, embracing the entirety of humanity's joys and sorrows. Let us free ourselves from the confines of right and wrong, and instead, be fully present.
It is time to let go of self-doubt, self-blame and feelings of inadequacy. It's time to stop asking if God loves me. We need to live LOVED. The world needs individuals who are willing to courageously embrace their true selves and live in alignment with their values. By allowing healing we contribute to the collective healing of humanity. Let us be the catalyst for change, starting with our own reflections of self, of God, of Love and Life.
Will you embark on this transformative journey? I am willing to! It just takes one small step
