Reflections: do you like what you see?

I’ve had so many thoughts in my head lately for blog posts, and there’s one I keep coming back to over and over… I keep hearing the words of someone at a workshop I recently attended: “Watch the reflections.”

Reflections are everywhere in our world. What we see in others is in us – the good and the bad. You wouldn’t recognize it otherwise.

Sometimes it mirrors back to us the qualities we want to be – loving, kind, confident, happy. Other times, what we see isn’t what we like – jealousy, anger, arrogance, insecurity.

Often when we see something we don’t like, we use it as a way to judge another person.

Deep down, however, there is a part of us that is like that person.

So, instead, we can use this judgement as an opportunity to go within and learn more about ourselves.

Every person and situation that has been in your life has been there to help you grow (spiritually) whether you realize it or not.

You can point fingers and lay blame, but your soul made a contract with their soul to share this experience in this lifetime. As I always say, sometimes someone has to be the bad guy (or gal).

But it is hard to see this in the heat of the moment. Your ego wants someone to be ‘right’ and someone to be ‘wrong’.

I’m not saying that people don’t do bad things that we wish they wouldn’t do. However, we always have a choice in how we deal with what happens.

Since everything externally is a reflection of what’s going on internally, it can be changed by changing our thoughts.

Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice.

Be a reflection of what you’d like to receive. If you want love, give love. If you want truth, be truthful. What you give out will always return.
