I am sitting out on my deck enjoying this beautiful summer morning. Breathing in the fresh air I think to myself that I want only to see the good this day has to offer. It’s one thing to imagine how we want things to be, but I find myself easily distracted by life’s events, things to do, and needs that must be met.
“Come on Connie, focus,” my inner voice says to me.
I look up at my beautiful hanging plants and my mind begins to wonder off again.
“Focus Connie,” the voice says again. “What do you see?”
I’m looking at an open socket with a plug lying right beneath it.
“And what happens when you put the plug in the socket?” The voice continues.
“It turns my fountain on.
“How does it do that?”
By connecting to its power source.
“And then what happens?”
The water begins to flow.
“Look, even Lucy’s thirst is quenched by the flowing waters created from the energy source you plugged into.”
Wow! There was the answer staring me in the face all along. The distractions of life tend to splinter us into pieces, but by plugging ourselves back into our source of life we become whole again. It is in this place of wholeness that life flows easily, and our thirst for clarity is quenched just as easily as it was for Lucy who drank from the flowing waters put before her.
The only thing that can help you is yourself. Because it is you who reflects the image in the mirror. -Ernest Holmes
Here I am with another reflective mirror scenario. Mainly because the whole concept brings everything that’s going on in our life right back to us. It’s all about what I’m thinking, doing, and how I’m reacting to the things outside of myself.
Realistically, we can’t look in the mirror to find answers. It’s simple there to remind us that wherever we are, in mind, body and spirit,we are right here, now! And the only person who can do anything about you, is the person starring back, your reflection in the mirror.
I don’t know about you but it gives me a sense of control and power in my life. I stop looking outside of myself for what my problems are, and begin to take responsibility for what I’ve created. Sometimes the changes we need to make feel too hard. That’s when I wish someone else could fix things for me, or tell me what I’m doing wrong. While others can observe our actions, and tell us what they think. We must see it for ourselves before we can change it. We hold the power within ourselves to become the authentic person we were created to be.
Oh to stand in the sunshine once again.
I feel your healing rays in the warmth of your touch.
The power of your energy fills me with strength.
And the shadow of what was stands behind me as only the light can do.
And I am grateful for the clarity that shines through once again.
