What is your shell? Parts of us have been hidden and rejected for lots of our lives. How do we see what we are hiding? The answer is simple, look in the mirror. Learning to understand how a mirror works takes time and experience. Watching a baby discover a mirror is fascinating. Babies take time to learn what they are seeing is a reflection and not another person. Animals never grasp this concept.
Another mirror exists that many don’t understand. Our experiences around us reflect back to us what we are hiding about ourselves. Learning to understand what you are seeing takes time and training. What we are experiencing can be compared to tuning a piano. When a certain note is hit, everything that is tuned to that note will also vibrate. As we change the tone of the note, tighten, or loosen the string, it no longer resonates with the things around it that previously responded. Similarly, as we heal the hidden parts of us, we no longer attract those experiences that responded to the old belief in our lives.
The key is to step back and not get lost in the mirror. It is all good, all the pain, bad, ugly hurtful, negative things are good when seen for their gifts. The first step is recognizing what is showing up is a reflection. It is a message about something we are ignoring about ourselves. It will keep showing up in different ways until we receive it. Having faith to trust the process and stepping out of victimhood is powerful and freeing. Each step is right on time and rushing or skipping steps is not possible, we get to feel all the emotions we have been avoiding.
