Yes, you read the question right. What do you hear when you look at the mirror? Apparently, for this particular article, it is not what to you see in the mirror, but what you HEAR that makes all the difference.
Unfortunately people hear negative self talk and critical chatter more often than not. They judge themselves harshly and relentlessly. (I’m sure it is not you…I’m just saying)
The voices in their heads go on: “I’m too old; I’m too dark; look at all these wrinkles; bla bla bla. The voices go on and on, and so does the physical facial reactions to match the inner dialogue. That slowly but surely eats away their confidence, self esteem, and enthusiasm.
Question: How can one stop the negative clatter and replace it with positive prompters?
There are numerous ways; one of them is telling oneself to STOP the negative voice every time it starts the useless chat.
In my book Do Not Force it, Tap The Good; there is a whole chapter on mirror talk, the humor side of it, and how to reprogram oneself to employ his/her mind to change his/her inner voice, and hence tap into his/her infinite potential.

So, there you are trying to control what you can’t: trying to seek for what you don’t have yet longed for, for so long. You’ve turned every stone looking for solutions for a particular dilemma in your life; yet found no answers. You’ve done everything you know, or discovered as a solution for your problem, yet nothing has worked. You know that you are more than what you are experiencing. Deep within you is a yawning that keeps harassing your senses to expand, and deliver your gifts to the world. However, everything in the world seems to be against you. You have actually stopped appreciating the good things you have in your life, because you know that you deserve more. You know that there is more for you.
My dear friend, I know, because I’ve been there.
A few questions to ponder: what if this is it??? What if for now, this is what your fate was designed to be? What do you plan on doing for, and with your life?
Suggestion: Become grateful for everything your 5 senses have availed you in the past, and in the now: focus on that. For instance: become grateful for the things that you’ve seen in the past, and recently that brought you joy. Become grateful for the gift of hearing, tasting, feeling, intuiting, and most importantly, living. It would work best if you make a list of 10 things you are grateful for, for the next 10 days.
Please let me know how it goes.
Love and light
