“Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.”
— Ernest Holmes
Such a powerful quote.. It is! I think it’s one of those real hard truths that you really don’t want to hear, although you know is so true!!
I often talk to people about this concept and I find some receive it better than others, the best part is that everyone eventually has their own experience that brings that understanding around to them in the end, whether they are aware of it or not.
Think about that for a moment. Take some time today to describe to yourself your outside world. Just have a deep look inside of yourself and have a good look at your inner world and check are your conflict, struggle, hate, anger, depression, and fear on the inside are getting manifested and becoming the part of your outside world.
So the thing is as a result of so many years of hurt, hardship and life experiences have built walls, walls that protect you from future hurt and danger and eventually these walls will become stronger and stronger as the years go on.. And to be honest there comes a time where those hurtful feelings, memories and pain become somewhat non existent for you. UNTIL one day you are sitting there minding your own business and then all of a sudden a thought pops up, it’s a flashback of a memory. Where did that come from now, you ask yourself.. ‘I wasn’t even thinking about that?’.
The things we have going on in our Inner World plays a huge role in the way we PERCEIVE and REACT to the Outer World. Just think of when you are upset or angry about something while you are at work or out and about. Even though you try to keep those feelings to yourself, without realising you may be a little quieter than usual, less tolerant with customers or people driving SLOWER on the road you may not feel chatty or you find yourself becoming snappy with people. These things are all a result and manufactured by your Inner World. Therefore you can only imagine the effects of years and years of hurt, pain, guilt, heartache and fear!
When working with my clients I am all about CHANGE and MOVING FORWARD in life we don’t spend all our time living in the past. Although I believe it is so important to take a step back sometimes to untangle yourself from the things that are holding you back!
