Life is not happening to you, it is a reflection of you.
The law of mirroring is one of the 12 universal laws, and is sometimes referred to as the law of attraction, though they are not exactly the same thing. The law of mirroring explains that we aren’t only attracting certain circumstances into our lives, we are actually getting glimpses of who we are through how we perceive others. That which is painful can teach us where we need to heal. That which is joyful can teach us where we are doing well.
Anaïs Nin said it like this: “We see the world not as it is, but as we are.”
Iyanla Vanzant said it like this: “What we love in other people is what we love in ourselves. What we hate in other people is what we cannot see in ourselves.”
The Law of Reflection deals with the fact that everything you see is only a mirror reflection of that which is within you. This is one of the hardest laws for people to understand and accept because we like to think that it is outside people or circumstances that are causing us to be happy or angry. Since everything is vibration it is you who is attracting these external situations to you. Hence, that individual who irritates you has come into your life because that is an active vibration within you. That irritable person is mirroring that which exists within you.
Understanding the law of mirroring puts you back in the driver’s seat of your life. It reminds you that everything that bothers, disturbs or discomforts you in life offers you an opportunity to grow, shift and expand… and move ever closer to the life you know you want and are meant to live.
“If you are struggling, keeping fighting. If you have been sacrificing, don’t give up. If you feel defeated, remember help is always available. Wherever you are today, believe that it will get better.
Keep going, keep showing up, and REFUSE to leave before your miracle happens.” – with love
ASK YOURSELF: “IS THIS USEFUL?”
It’s designed to help you assess if a thought is serving you or others–or if it’s just irrational. “If the worry is reasonable, do something about it, If it’s irrational or out of your control, recognize that. Neuroscience shows that merely making a decision like this can reduce worry and anxiety.”
“Is this useful?” Pausing to ask that question does a few things:
First, it forces you to climb out of your thoughts and see them from a new perspective.
Second, asking “Is this useful?” makes it more intentional. Unlike desperately shouting at my thoughts to “STOP”, I calmly faced them head-on and assessed them. I quickly decided if the thoughts served me, and I let those that didn’t fall to the wayside.
Try it out next time. – with love
The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Exercise your creative genius. Anything new to your brain can stimulate it.
When was the last time you questioned the existing convention, conceptualized problems differently, approached problems in new, innovative way.
Steve Job’s calligraphy course in college helped build the first Mac. In his famous 2005 Commencement speech for Stanford University, Jobs said:
If I had never dropped in on that single calligraphy course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts.
You never know what will be useful ahead of time. Try new skills and they will connect with the rest of your skills in the future.

Everytime I travel .. I am reminded of how beautiful the world really is .. how strangers can become lifelong friends … how fear changes to excitement .. how uninspired turns into inspiration and passion.
Whenever possible .. choose travel over buying things. It will change you for the better. 🙏🏻 -love
I took this picture just for this post. It’s to talk about the person you see in the mirror every day. The conversations you have with yourself is the most POWERFUL daily moment in self-growth. Unfortunately, if you are like me.. I used to only talk to myself about the shit that was bad. A constant drip of harsh and negative shit.. to myself.
It took a while and lots of self growth to realize that the “negative voice” wasn’t mine. It was the culmination of all the negative noise from my past. The voices of my dad, teachers, friends no longer in my life, clients, ex’s, haters .. you get it. We all have them. 🙏🏻
So.. Practice ignoring that voice. Let it talk. Do it’s thing. Then look it as you move past it. Cuz, right past that “negative noise” is YOUR voice. Your voice is there to encourage you. To motivate you. To push you. To tell you that you are doing what you are meant to be doing and that you are an awesome person. Period.
If you can’t hear that voice and I didn’t for many many years, please trust that it’s there and that you need to start moving past your own negative noise. – with love 🙏🏻
