When you truly love yourself, life reflects that love to you in incredible ways.
“The people in my life are really mirrors of me. My world is safe and friendly.”
Everyone and everything in your life acts as a mirror, reflecting your innermost beliefs, beauty and challenges. What you recognize in another, you carry within. Surround yourself with those who inspire you, who respond to life with optimism and courage and offer support for your souls growth. Love yourself enough to recognize your own beauty and abilities.
If you react strongly to someone when they are in the midst of dysfunction – being greedy, self-absorbed, driven by ego, angry, depressed or judgmental – love yourself enough to see that you also carry that attribute to some degree within yourself. Appreciate the other for helping you to see more clearly, then begin the process of self-observation. Awareness is the first step of transformation.
As you change, the world around you is transformed. When you no longer require a particular reflection, it will either leave your life or you’ll notice less reactivity in it’s presence. Spiritual awakening is simply a process of releasing things that no longer serve you, eventually creating a life filled with peace, clarity, joy and compassion.
Today my intention is to be willing to see clearly.
