“If beating ourselves up worked, we’d all be thin, rich and happy by now.”—Cheryl Richardson
Louise Hay, my mentor, my publisher and the most awesome 87-year-old on the planet, recommends mirror work. That’s where, rather than asking the mirror, mirror on the wall who’s the fairest of them all, you look deep into your own eyes and tell the reflection in that bloody mirror that you are beautiful, fabulous, worthy, talented, creative and all sorts of other truths that far out-trump being “fair.”
My friend Rhonda told me she was watching Louise and Cheryl Richardson give a lecture called “You Can Create an Exceptional Life.” Louise, who touts mirror work on a daily basis, reached into her bra at one point, pulled out a tiny mirror, looked into it and said, “Hey, good-looking. How’s it going?”
Now, that’s someone who walks her talk.
I, too, have been thinking about mirrors. But more about the big mirror called life. Everything we see out there is a reflection of what’s in here. Inside ourselves.
And just like you wouldn’t notice your lipstick was smudged and try to fix it on the mirror, you can’t really fix the “problems” in your life by fixing them in the mirror of your life. You have to go inside. That’s where everything originates and where all solutions lie.
