The Mirror – a basic tenant of all Spiritual Healing
Everything in your world is either a projection or a reflection.
A projection is when you see someone as you want them to be rather than as they truly are. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and “We see what we want to see” are good examples of this principle. Another example is; you could be watching someone sharpen a knife without asking them their purpose. Using projection you will fill in their purpose according to your beliefs about the meaning of someone sharpening a knife.
A Reflection is when you see the good in someone and recognise it in yourself. The good thing about this kind of reflection is that you get to bask in their glory which is also your glory – a win, win for all concerned. The more challenging reflection is a shadow or negative reflection. This is when you see your darker self in others. The problem is most people don’t want to accept that they are looking at themselves.
The acid test is can you look at a shadow aspect and remain truly impartial? If you get an emotional reaction, it is a very good indication that you are looking at a reflection of your own unbalanced nature. It is good to remember this next time you are judging another as being this or that.
You can tell how evolved you are by how much your allow others to be, without your need to judge, control, possess or manipulate them.
It is important to remember we all have the potential for all things both what is termed good and evil within us. Every woman has an inner male and every man has an inner female. The battle between the sexes is an inner battle! We express and see what pleases us or what we believe to be true.
If you don’t like your reflection then change yourself!
