Can you see what I see? When you look in the mirror what is it that you? Do you see that strong confident women that you are? Do you really take the time to look into your eyes so that you can go deeper and look into yourself on a soul level? Maybe you just look to see what you look like on the outside……. All of these things cross my mind from time to time.
I participate in a group called “Journey of Inner Healing Through the Arts” on Facebook. Each week we are assigned a new word to make a craft with~ Sorta like a weekly vision board. When the words are revealed to us we take the time to look deeper into ourselves to see how that word relates to us. In the group we have 2 admins. Sacha who started this activity in another group called “Beyond the vision board.” She wanted to take her own vision of helping other’s feel motivated to heal themselves and empower themselves to do anything they want to do. Sacha came to me one day and asked if I wanted to help out and I was all for it. Each few weeks we will be switching to give out the words to other’s and ourselves when we do join in. This past week was my first time giving words out and I ended up giving myself the word “Mirror”.
Mirror defined by the Wikipedia says – A mirror is an object that Reflects light in such a way that, for incident light in some range of wavelengths, the reflected light preserves many or most of the detailed physical characteristics of the original light. This is different from other light-reflecting objects that do not preserve much of the original wave signal other than color and diffuse reflected light.
When I look in the Mirror it is different for me at each time. Since I am always changing (either my thoughts) it reflects on the outside of what I am thinking. Positive thoughts make me feel happy and I look happy on the outside. If I have negative thoughts that shows as well – you can see it in my facial expressions with a grimace or frown lines on my forehead. I also sometimes inspect what is happening on the inside as well. You’ve heard the old saying “eye’s are the windows to the soul” and that does ring true. You see we have 3 things that we could see…….. 1. Physical – It is our vessel for this life time. 2. Mental/Emotional – what we think, how we feel is another. And then we have 3. Which is our Soul.
Sometimes we don’t get as far as numbers 2 & 3. I know sometimes for me it’s about wanting to make sure I look good because I want to see how other’s are reacting towards the way I look. I think we all do, in a way. When I look in the Mirror I find that I also ask myself why do I look this way? Why did that zit just happen to appear? Or I think HOLY COW what can I do to get rid of these horrible bags under and around my eyes? Again that is all done in Vanity though.
Over the last year I’ve been searching up spiritual meanings a lot and found that almost all of these things correlate to something that is happening to me on a soul level. Which makes me look deeper into each and every little thing.
So for me what I see is, my soul. And how I can improve my “physical” body by working out my problem’s that might arise. But most of all I see a beautiful soul.
What is it that you see when you look into the Mirror?
