Cracking the Mirror Code: How to Decipher What Your Own Perceptions Reflect Back to You

Image result for we are all mirrors quoteHuman reflections come in different ways. Some we can literally see right in front of our face, clear as day; like looking into an actual mirror.

“I see myself in you…”, when a mother may be speaking to her daughter who is struggling with self-esteem. This happens when we sense a familiar trait or emotion within another person and for obvious reasons, this tends to be a lot easier to pick up on with people that you care about, are close to and love. This sort of reflection could be considered empathetic or sympathetic in that you are consciously and directly relating to something. You are fully aware of the reflection and are even making a public note of it.

Other times, while it may hang out in the same arena, these types of reflections, if surrounding heavily negative emotions or unresolved trauma can often be overlooked, suppressed or even denied. And boy oh boy are these the juiciest kinds of reflections, because they tend to drag along with them the most drama and pain and therefore (if you are willing to look at it a different way), also bring the most opportunity for growth and personal expansion on the level of conscious awareness. In other words, it really helps to give you a real boost in getting to know who the fuck you are. 🙂

“We are all mirrors of each other. If you don't like what you see, then make that change in yourself.” – Shelly Castillo

And I’m not talking here about the “you” that the world gets to see everyday. I'm talking about the real you that is still a bit a ways from that you. The you that perhaps fears failure or judgment or ridicule. The you that is afraid of her own voice or his own ability to always know how to make people feel better.

When we doubt who we are and furthermore the gifts and talents that have been bestowed upon us, we are dishonoring the divinity from which we came and STILL are. So, there’s this handy thing in life that is there to remind us; constantly. And you want to know what it’s called? Humanity…each other…any and every person we’ve ever had any kind of relationship with. Every person we’ve ever loved or hated, wish we could be or wanted to be like us. Every person we’ve helped or hurt, worked with or against…

We are all knowingly or unknowingly mirrors for one another and because we can never physically look into our own eyes; the literal windows to our souls (and how we read the truth and integrity of others if you really tune in), we can never see as clearly our own shortcomings, as well as others, can. We also can never truly see our own light…until we do (by looking within via the third eye or Pineal Gland). And then, we can never unsee it…

But to do this first or to even know to do this, we first often go through a whole lot of reflecting back and forth between many other human beings in our lives and we call them “relationships”. It is in our relationships that we learn and grow; discover new things about our limits, or what we once thought were our limits and possibly surprise ourselves at the awesomeness we may come to find we are capable of.

I’ve come to find that if you really pay attention, you can start to decipher these reflections. You begin to see patterns form and we call these “behaviors”. And if we pay attention enough to those, we begin to see how if our behaviors are always a reaction to someone else’s, then are we literally letting other people decide not only when to look, but also what to see. We must learn to be and be conscious of remaining as our own conscious mirrors.

When we do this, we can self-contain our own reflections. By this I mean, when we see another reflecting back to us something about ourselves, it becomes much easier to spot right away and instead of going through a perhaps long, drawn-out talk, argument, etc. that might normally occur, you come to find ripples calm much faster, because instead of getting caught in the illusion anymore, you are simply put…able to now discern between other people’s bullshit and your own. You see yourself now in that reflection instead of an insult, a put-down, a feeling of inferiority, a pending sense of worthlessness…none of this has anything to do with other people because other people literally have no control over our feelings.

Yes, others can influence and lead us, but again this is following the proverbial rabbit down the same illusory hole. You are choosing to believe someone else opinion of you at that moment over the truth of your magnificence and if YOU decide to give your power away to them, that is YOUR decision. So, again once we get better at this practice, it begins to actually feel good to own your own crap! You get less offended by things, small stuff stops bothering you because you realize just how precious your smile and yes, your inner peace are. Because you’ve cracked the code, and without a doubt, you can now see yourself in your own light; and that is most certainly something worth reflecting on.
