Reflections - May 22, 2017

Posted by luannchou on May 22, 2017

Today I want to talk about the many lessons I have been learning in seeing what is being reflected back to me in others.

I’m going to be honest.  I’ve never been a big fan of when people say, You don’t like what you see in the other person because you don’t like that part in yourself.  Hmmm.  Maybe…   That is one possibility.  There are others that include fear, resistance etc…

My point is there are so many facets of life being reflected back to you in the people you encounter from the grocery store clerk to your boss to your child or parent???

Today, I challenge you to pay attention to when something strikes you as curious or triggers you.

I have come to be grateful of these moments because I believe spirit is at work teaching me in these moments. When these moments come:

#1 Allow

Allow the moment to come in.  Don’t resist or push it out.

#2 Accept

Accept that it’s making you feel a little or a lot triggered or super curious and that that is OK!!!

#3 Ask

Ask your inner self, what is this about?

#4 Scrawl

Scrawl it out on paper.  It can be the back of a receipt but do a quick write of :

What is it triggering in me?

Why?

What can I accept?

What am I able to control?

#5 Ballon

Wrap all the thoughts up in a pink bubble balloon and release it…

I hope this helps you out in your daily practice of being mindful!

Pen to Paper

I love putting pen to paper!  Why?  Because it gets it out of your head.  don’t believe me, try it!
