We’ve talked about an inner centre of gravity that brings us matching experiences in our outer world. Your outer world is what you experience and your experience is processed through your body (your five senses) how you feel about what is happening and your thoughts about it . In a way your outer world reflects back to you what is going on within your three bodies (physical, emotional and mental) whether you are conscious of this process and the inner centre of gravity or not.
Your World As a Mirror
Let’s take an example: Have you ever been feeling annoyed or upset with something and kept these feelings to yourself? You have a sense that in expressing these feelings you won’t be helping the situation, you’ll only make things worse.
However, you know you’re still feeling annoyed.
There are many possibilities in how your world will begin to reflect this annoyance – perhaps you’ll stub your toe and become more upset, or you’ll get stuck in traffic, or someone will come around and start complaining about something and this will push your annoyance button again. These are just little clues for you to see that you might want to do something about how you are feeling. (We’ll talk about how to shift your energy in future posts.)
If we react to the mirror (our experience or world) by blaming the table leg we stubbed our toe on, yelling at the other drivers for blocking our way or telling the complainer to leave us alone we feed the annoyance spiral.
Rather than ignoring or trying to break the mirror use it to see yourself clearly and take steps to shift your energy. The deeper you allow yourself to fall into the gravity well or into the mirror the higher the climb out will be.
