Never trust a Mirror

We look into the mirror every day, but what is it that we truly see? Is it a quick glance to check our appearance, do we give ourselves a quick wink, or do we look at ourselves with a critical eye? Have you ever given yourself a pep talk while looking into the mirror? Maybe that critical eye is not just for the way we look, but a close, deep, in depth attempt to see who is looking back at us. This brings me to a little statement that says to never trust a mirror, because a mirror always lies. It makes you think that all you’re worth can be seen from the outside. Never trust a mirror, it only shows you what’s skin deep. You can’t see how your eyelids flutter when you’re drifting off to sleep. It doesn’t show you what the world sees when you’re only being you. Or how your eyes just light up when you’re loving what you do. It doesn’t capture when you’re smiling where no one else can see, and your reflection cannot tell you everything you mean to me. Never trust a mirror, for it only shows your skin, and if you think that it dictates your worth, it’s time you looked within.

World Prayer Day

Happy World Prayer day.

Today we can join in the power of collective prayer. In my own humble opinion I believe that even though this is a day founded by woman, anybody should join and power in numbers is always greater.

Today we have the opportunity to send a prayer to the universe for someone, for ourselves, or for something much greater than that, such as perhaps the world that we live in.

If you could have one wish granted, one prayer heard, what would it be. I realize this is very personal and of course there is no pressure to share. There is no right and wrong, no need to feel selfish, no feeling of one reason being more important than the other. Just an exercise to be vulnerable and to be heard.

For myself, I have multiple prayers and most likely we all do. If I had to pinpoint it, my prayer today is for love and light. It’s something we healers often say at the end of a conversation, wishing someone love and light.

What it means is that love conquers all and light illuminates the shadows, the darkness within us. Today my prayer is that we always find our way out of the darkness and never forget that we carry the light already within us. Sometimes the flame is dim and our light barely shines but even the darkness has purpose and without it the stars can’t shine. May you never forget your worth in the darkness and remember that there are no ordinary moments. Everything has purpose and together we lift each other, together we lean on each other and together we conquer in love and light 🙏🏼💙

Here is a little more about it.

Faith bigger than fear

I am trying a wordless Wednesday for the first time (or some version of it), and not every day requires a lot of things that need to be said. Sometimes it’s only a few words that bring the most powerful message and this one seems to strike a chord. It applies to much in my life these days, but that’s a story for another day. In the meantime, just ponder the meaning and let this one sink in.
