It feels today like you are looking into a mirror everywhere you go. You may try to direct your energy outward, but it never seems to go far, and just bounces right back to you. Energy is in a state of reflection today. When this happens, it’s often best to pull back from trying to accomplish things and allow yourself to turn inward. This can sometimes be difficult in the modern age, where we are pressured to just go, go, go. But when the Universe is holding up a mirror before us, it is a good time to use the reflected energy to see what is out of balance within us rather than trying to fix what is outside.
The outward projection of our energy comes in large part from our solar plexus chakra. This is the energy centre from which we feel directed and is the source of how we manifest our desires. Doing this in a healthy, positive way requires reflection to reach understanding of ourselves and our desires in a way that doesn’t let our ego overshadow our efforts.
Find a mirror to use as a focus for today’s meditation. Small or large makes no difference, but make sure to clean the surface so it is bright and clear. Stand or sit before the mirror and examine the person on the other side. Allow yourself to detach from the idea that this is “you” and just look upon the other person as a friend. Hold off judgements of their appearance and focus on feeling the energy that is coming from the mirror. What do you feel that this person truly wants? What are the creative aspirations and goals this person has which bring light into the world rather than pulling the spotlight onto themselves? Breathe and let your mind settle on the circle of bright yellow energy in the person’s solar plexus. Feel out what it needs to shine with greater radiance. Now recognize that the person in the mirror is indeed yourself: what they need is what you need. Step away from the mirror and take a few more steadying breaths before acting on what you’ve discovered.
“When the Universe acts like a mirror, I use it as a focus to make myself clearer.”
