“Relationship is a mirror. The closer the relationship, the clearer is the mirror.” - Rajneesh
I spent the last 5 days in Punta Mita, Mexico surrounded by warm ocean air, soft ivory sand, and slow burning sunsets. But as much beauty as nature provides, the theme of the week that returned over and over again in my mind and in our conversations, was that of mirrors.
Mirrors come in many forms. And as humans, we are one of the few species able to recognize our own reflections. Though, we are by far the only species able to self-reflect on that reflection and evolve it into something beyond what’s staring back at us. We are the mirror and the mirrored (a little abstract but it makes sense in my mind).
I think that’s what makes mirrors so fascinating. Their purpose isn’t to tell us what to do. It’s to show us. To illuminate and lead the way without forceful effort - simply a reflection of what we somehow already know.
Life by Design was born out of a need for my own self-healing after decades of unresolved illness. It wasn’t until finding the courage to look within that I discovered it was my own belief system holding me back from experiencing a truly thriving life. We all have access to that thriving life. We just need to rediscover our power and ignite the healing-self. Only then can we unapologetically live a life by our own design.
