THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
What do your eyes say about you? What do you see in your eyes whenever you look into them? Is it comfortable for you to look into your eyes? Do you think about what other people see when they look into your eyes? William Shakespeare said that "your eyes are the window to your soul," do you believe that to be true?
I decided to talk about what's in our eyes today because what's in our eyes is either blocking us from what we want or leading us towards the life that we want. I have been doing research on mirror work, and I have witnessed the difference that its made every day in my emotions and feelings about myself.
If you stare into your eyes while looking in the mirror, you will feel something profound, you will feel the truth, and you will see the truth. Even more so, if you began talking to yourself while looking into your eyes in the mirror, powerful emotions will emerge from you. The first time I did mirror work, I couldn't make it all the way through because I started crying. I couldn't look anymore. I still cry when I hit a soft spot while doing mirror work from time to time. There was so much pain and hurt in my eyes. Our eyes record everything. They're video recorders, and everything that we see and imagine to see is played back on the screen of our minds. We can make a whole movie on the screen of our minds.
All of the pain that we have been holding from childhood traumas, bad memories, good ones, all of our experiences are tucked away inside of our eyes. We cannot hide what's in our eyes. This is why when someone is tired, you can see it in their eyes. Have you ever looked into someone's eyes and it became uncomfortable to look? You couldn't figure out what you were seeing that was making you so uncomfortable so instead you just looked away briefly while talking to them. You can pretty much read a person's mind when looking into their eyes. You can tell how they feel about you, just by looking into their eyes. The eyes never lie.
When I was a child I hardly wanted to look into people's eyes because of the shyness that I felt inside. I would wonder what could they see in me? I didn't want to see some of the things that I would see in them. However I came to understand early on in life that you must be able to look people in the eyes, if you expected them to respect you or to take you seriously at all. They have to know that you aren't afraid.
I have been looking for ways to remove all energy blocks in myself and my life, so it's no mistake that I landed upon mirror work. I have done mirror work before, but I have stopped because of it's uncomfortableness, or just being complacent about my healing at times. I have returned to it, and I see the value of mirror work and how it's changing my life for the better.
Mirror work is shadow work, and it is the best way to tackle shadow work. It's the stuff that we try to hide that sits in our eyes. There is nothing crazy about talking to yourself. Talking to yourself is more normal than not, because we will never talk to anyone more than we talk to ourselves. There will be no conversation that's more powerful than talking to yourself. When you hear words in your mind, questions and you answer them, you are talking to yourself.
"The most powerful affirmations are those you say out loud when you are in front of your mirror. Why? Because the mirror reflects back to you the feelings you have about yourself. Immediately it makes you aware of where you are resisting and where you are open and flowing. It clearly shows you what thoughts you will need to change if you want to have a joyous, fulfilling life." www.louisehay.com/what-is-mirror-work/
If you already say your affirmations in the mirror, you're already doing mirror work. But in these affirmations, are you really speaking into your soul or are you just reciting words and phrases? Take 3 deep breaths. Mirror work starts with just looking into the mirror, and saying, "I love you." Repeat it over and over, and if it's hard to say I love you, say "I am loving you more and more everyday," or "I love you more everyday." This is all you have to say to start doing mirror work. I stand in the mirror and say, "I love you," "I love all of you." I say it over and over until I truly believe it. Stretch your arms out in front of you, and say your truth, say "I love you," say, "I am more than enough," "life loves you." Say that I am a wonderful person, great things happen to me. Every day something great happens to me. Say these phrases or you own personal ones over and over, while looking deep into your eyes, I promise you will feel something powerful. Take 3 deep breaths.
This is what broke me down, I looked in the mirror and said, "I forgive you for everything," "I forgive you for all the relationships that turned sour, everything that has been done to you to hurt you, I let it all go." Then I started crying harder as I said, "I deserve all of the wonderful things that life has to offer," "I deserve to be happy," "I deserve to be healthy," "I deserve to enjoy my life," "I deserve to live a wealthy rich life." I exclaimed, "I deserve all the goodness in the world, nothing is too good to be true for me!"
How can we get anything that we want, if we don't deserve it? Many times we don't get what we want out of life because deep down in our eyes, we don't feel like we deserve it. We may think we deserve some things, we might even say that we feel it, but if that were really true, we would have those things because we would accept nothing less. When we accept less than what we deserve, we are telling the Universe that it's alright with us. When we accept less than we deserve from people, they will feel it's okay to give us less than we deserve. They will see us how we treat ourselves, and by what we are willing to settle for.
I heard someone say before, "We get the love when feel we deserve."
What do you feel you deserve?
If you go to the mirror and stare into your eyes, you will see the unsaid. You will see the truth of what's inside of you. You can change the direction of the routes that you're on that you don't like. You can literally talk yourself into confidence and change. You can change the look in your eyes. You can change how you feel in your soul.
We have to look in the mirror everyday to style our hair and make sure our face is clean, this is our time to do our mirror work. We can say that we love ourselves, but is your life a reflection of loving yourself through giving yourself care. Are you hard on yourself about things of the past or situations that are happening right now? Are we hard on others for their behaviors that we don't agree with? As we open our heart, we stop judging, and start understanding. We can see where a person is on their spiritual path, understanding that they are still going the same direction, back to their Divine nature.
Mirror work is something that must be practiced every day. Keep practicing it until you see a break in your paradigm, and then keep practicing it. Never stop. Keep speaking to yourself in the mirror. If you are wanting to build confidence for something that you want to do, go to the mirror and tell yourself that you can do it. Tell yourself that you are doing it, say it like it's happening now. There is only now, right now is the only time that you have to do something about anything.
This is a free, personal, therapy that you can do on yourself for yourself, that is guaranteed to work. This is how you go into the deep within yourself. Your ancestors are there with you, rooting for you, because when you heal, you heal your entire blood line. You don't have to go anywhere to do it and you can do it anywhere. I do it at home, I do it in my car. I have the deepest conversations with myself looking into my eyes in the rear view mirror. I talk to myself looking into my eyes and it sticks, raising my vibration, and setting the tone internally. The more I stare, the more I state, the more I believe then I know.
You know a lie because you will see it in the eyes.
When you know, you know.
