What is the secret Mirror Work technique? In this blog, I am going to tell you how to use the Mirror Work technique to manifest your desires. Recently, I watched a YouTube video about how to manifest what you desire by using a technique called Mirror Work. I had never heard of this. Found myself in the mirror soon as the video ended – crying and I couldn’t describe the emotions I was feeling. I found it hard to be honest with myself, I found it hard to say something as simple as ‘I love you’. It’s amazing how something so simple can be so difficult. In that moment, I knew I had some work to do.
First and foremost, let’s talk about what Mirror Work is. Mirror Work is a technique used to help people learn how to love themselves and see the world as a safe and loving place. Louise Hay has been teaching people how to do mirror work alongside teaching people affirmations. So what are affirmations? Affirmations are whatever we think or say. So when you are talking to yourself and having a dialogue in your head that is a stream of affirmations. These affirmations are sending messages to your subconscious mind that ultimately establish your way of thinking and behaving.
So, if we think about it like this, positive affirmations are essentially thoughts and ideas that will help support and develop your self-esteem; which ultimately builds your confidence.
Can you believe that the most powerful affirmations are those that you say out loud when you’re in front of the mirror? Let me tell you why.
See, the mirror is reflecting back to you all of the feelings that you have about yourself. When you are looking in a mirror and you are talking talking to yourself, you will become immediately aware of your resistance in certain areas. Some people, like myself, will struggle to say ‘ I love you’ in the mirror or say ‘I am beautiful’. That feeling will immediately tell you where you need to adjust in order to live a fulfilled life. Are these insecurities? Why do you feel this way? Maybe it’s time to focus on self-healing. When you recognize these weaknesses, you don’t want to just ignore them. Dig deeper into that emotion, get it out, shout and scream if you must, then let it go – it is time to begin the healing process.
Once you learn to do mirror work, you will see that you become more aware of what you say and do. I like to stand in the mirror and say ’Thank you’. I encourage you to take it one step further and learn how to forgive yourself in the mirror. When bad things happen, say ‘It’s ok, I love you. Tomorrow is a new day’.
When I did this in the mirror for the first time, I felt so uncomfortable and uneasy and didn’t even know what to say.
I cried because for the first time I KNEW I had a problem. You ever try to act like everything is ok, trying to mask the real pain deep down? Yep, been there! The process of facing ourselves is called Mirror Work. Now isn’t that amazing.
