Life is not happening to you, it is a reflection of you!

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.
