Do you meditate regularly? I remember the first time I started meditation based on my mentor coach’s recommendation several years ago, I was frustrated. My mind was in full force during the meditation. It was almost opposite effect and I felt like I was creating MORE TIME TO THINK by meditating and doing more things to do in my busy schedules.
I was like, don’t we meditate to be calm, get out of our head, and be still? So, I didn’t get it. I didn’t understand why many people recommend meditation so strongly.
I was also looking for results. My mentor coach reminded me over and over that meditation is not about results, it’s a process.
Now, I’ve been reaping so many benefits from my daily meditation. One of the biggest ones is my intuition. My ability to hear my small inner voice and to listen to my intuition has been improved so much.
It does not necessarily happen during a meditation, but if meditation becomes your daily routine, out of the blue, you will often get an answer for what you’ve been asking and pondering.
It happened to me this morning while doing my laundry. It was a big a-ha moment.
You’ve probably heard about this concept and how it works. But, boy…., it’s hard to swallow… don’t you agree?
You see and deal with people that frustrate you and those “types” seem to be always around you and never go away! Does that sound familiar to you? Well, I am not an exception who is always trapped in those “people.”
I knew about this “mirror of relationship” and how people around you are just a reflection of who you are. But, I wasn’t convinced. I was like, “how could it be? I am the opposite end of the spectrum! I would never act like them or think like them!” I was denial.
Then, one day, it hit me. Once again during my daily healing meditation. Yes, my 2020 big game. I’ve been focusing on “self-love” and suddenly, I realized that those “types” are the exactly the “types” that I hate to see myself to be. I can’t stand if I were like them.
Do you know what that means? That means, I AM NOT ACCEPTING MYSELF AND LOVING MYSELF UNCONDITIONALLY” BINGO!!!
I’ve had so may “have to” about myself. I have to be this and that. If I am not living up to my own expectations, I am not approving myself. I can’t accept myself.
Judgement is a projection of self-critics. When I am OK with no matter how I am and what I do or don’t do and love myself unconditionally, I believe I will love and accept everyone who is reflecting in my mirror. Because in the end, there’s only me in the world. Everyone is just a fraction of who I am, myself.
