I woke up at 2:59 a.m. thinking it was just the case of needing to use the bathroom because I drank my bedtime tea. For some reason, I could not fall asleep when I laid back down, it just wasn’t working out for me. Lying there forcing my eyes to close and ignoring the fact that I could not breathe through my nose, I decided to cover my face with the covers. I whispered to my grandparents (whom are deceased) if there’s something you need or want me to know, then please tell me in a dream. I’m much more prone to remember the details than I would lying here awake. I started saying affirmations, speaking and manifesting things into existence as I held my eyes closed waiting to just fall fast asleep.
Normally when this happens I am able to get up and write some things down. With me having the sniffles and my work alarm set, my husband sleeping. I couldn’t just get up and write like I would have preferred too. I like to think I was drifting to sleep, but my spirit tells me I wasn’t sleeping. I was in a moment of solitude and silence. I found myself enjoying the darkness , the quietness, and the ability to just be . I heard the words very clearly in my ear, ” Do people ever look into their own souls when looking at themselves in the mirror?” Now I know I have this question before and I have blogged about soul-searching, mirror reflections, and so much more related to this. For some reason this just won’t leave me be.“Do you see who you really are or do you see what you think you are?” “Do you see the person you’re truly meant to be?” Our eyes are said to be the gateway to our souls, the window of our souls.
I’d like to think that this is true, the secrets and the excitement, the twinkle of the eye—- never lies. How and why is it that others are able to look into the depths of our souls yet we can only scratch the surface of who we are? Why is it that it takes another soul to mirror our very own soul? Why must we see ourselves in one aspect before we are able to find the truth behind that aspect.
Why is looking in the mirror the most common way for us to see ourselves, for us to see our soul?
The mirror helps us to see the pieces we have put together on the outside, you have to take time to know that there’s more than what meets your stare as you glare in amazement of your own creation of self. There are far to many of us that are not aware that we have the ability to see more than our surface when looking into the mirror. There are more of us that aren’t aware that we do not need a mirror to see what lies behind the twinkle in our eyes. There so many of us who do not notice the glare or the twinkle in our eyes.
I encourage you to speak both the good and bad to yourself when looking at yourself in the mirror. What does this do, and why would I tell you to speak the bad things to yourself in the mirror? We’re focusing on loving who is looking back at us aren’t we?
You damn right we are!
My question to you is how do we come to a point of self acceptance and positivity if all we see is the good? Which is great but suppressing and repressing those things that we drive ourselves insane about only leads us to turmoil. It leads us to self-doubt and letting ourselves down. Pick out your bad apples in the bunch, find the reason it became a bad apple. Some of us cut the bad part off and consume the remaining pieces of the apple. While there are also those of us who just throw the whole damn thing away. Either way is fine, just have a sense of acknowledgement of the bad seeds, the rotten apples, the molded bread, the dying flowers, the weeds in your garden that are the reasons your flowers, fruits, and veggies are going bad.
“Mirror mirror on the wall what soul lies behind the eyes of this vessel that keeps me growing and standing tall?”
