What do you see when you look in a mirror? What do others see? Most importantly, what do you see in others which reflects you? As infants grow, they imitate the parents, older siblings and others in their life. And most of us find this incredibly interesting and fun. Yet, when that same child imitates a negative aspect we may have exposed to them, it’s not so fun anymore. We are teaching the child to mirror us, so when they are learning, they are depicting what they see in others. We then see the child form it’s own actions, and then learning to speak begins. They also use words we use with them. And, then as they mature, they find their own words. This pattern repeats until we seemingly know ourselves. But, do we? Have we discovered our true self? We have also learned to hide traits which aren’t part of the mainstream, or are different than our “tribe”, our family, our friends. But to truly find our highest, true self, it’s important to keep learning and growing.
Using our relationships as mirrors to our souls helps uncover and reveal our true self.
First we must detach from how a trait in someone makes us feel and just observe. Detaching because we will see things which aren’t “fun”. Like a baby imitating others, just find the imitation, whatever it happens to be. Detaching and observing, leaves us open to closely and carefully examine the aspect we’ve seen and mirrored. Without attaching any labels to it (i.e., like, dislike), we now understand something new about ourselves, or something we hadn’t before wished to see. We have uncovered and revealed a trait to ourselves. This is the learning process. By then accepting this trait, we can either strengthen it, or change it. This is the growing process. How do we change a trait? Many different ways exist, but it’s a mindset. It’s about being very aware about each and every thought you have and thinking about them. Analyzing them. Understanding them. And, then changing the thought. With practice, you notice you are having “that thought” and you change it, after awhile, you will find you have changed the thought…thus the trait. You have uncovered a part of your true self, changed it and now can reveal it to others. Continually looking into another as a reflection of you with detachment and openness allows you to uncover your truths one by one, learning and growing into your true self. Your highest self. Your best self. Your authentic self. Your true shining reflection of your inner soul. Noting you are also a mirror for others, your actions are helping others to see something in you that is in themselves. Their true self.
May your mirror others to find your true reflection and shine!
