A few Abers were talking yesterday about being an "Intellectual seeker and then wanting to be  more emotionally willing (which Abe says is the best combination.) Someone suggested the mirror technique of looking into your eyes in the mirror and saying very simple sentences of how you want to be.
Like:
I am emotionally willing
I am more clear
I KNOW

Or:
I am loved
Things work out for me
Life is easy
Life is fun

He suggested doing this as a daily practice and said it's important to keep the sentences direct and just a few words.

I'd love to hear more about this and other things you might say to yourself.

Thanks!
Karen

Yes. I did this for a long time, until I could look into my eyes deeply and say 'I love you, you are wonderful and perfect.' It is brilliant stuff.

Love,
Christine

Hi Ari, I don't do the mirror thing, because it feels weird and causes me to feel a lot of resistance. The internal dialogue goes on and on all day long and I prefer to pay attention to that one and in time, I have managed to make it softer and nicer and the thoughts are much like the ones you describe below... plus an idea that helps me a lot is the fact that "I don't have to figure everything out right now" "I'm an eternal being and I have my whole eternal existence to see the manifestation" "All my whishes have to come, it's inevitable" "I congratulate myself for paying attention to how I feel and caring and constantly looking for thoughts that feel better".

So for me, more than one particular time starring at myself in the mirror (I DO that, just when I'm putting on make up or fixing my hair hehehe) and talking, I prefer to try talking to myself all day long in a softer, nicer way!

Hugs

Niki

Tony Robbins tells people to use the mirror technique. He says to look in the mirror and say "I love you" several times.

I tried this once. Couldnt look myself in the eye at the time. I wonder if that has changed.  ::chinI'll try again tomorrow.

Hi,

This is a Louise Hay technique as well. VERY POWERFUL! Made me cry the first time I did it, but I was a lot kinder to myself afterwards...

I think the reason this is so powerful is because we do just look in the mirror to 'do stuff' to ourselves, shave, put on make-up, etc, and most of us criticise ourselves in someway - (my nose is too big, I've got horrible spots, I'm going grey/bald/wrinkly/blah/blah/blah.

To look at yourself directly and just give yourself unconditional love is a gift to yourself.  

:beautiful:

Hi All

I've done this technique too (for over a year now) - Jack Canfield uses it and asked us to commit to doing it for 40 days. 

 Like many of the comments here I cried too when I first did it.  But then something shifted and I have found it to be a very powerful technique - the saying I love you is huge.

Thanks Karen

I have done this before but forgot about this practice.  I remember at times feeling a bit uncomfortable with it.  I just did it now and it felt so great and so right.  I loved saying I love you to myself.  I've been in the vortex all day and maybe that's why this process just seemed so natural to me today.

I've just done this for the first time and it feels kind of weird, I wanted to focus on how it feels, but it's like I'm kind of scared of what I feel, like I'm afraid of being judged for being so full of myself, but I guess that's a good thing in some twisted way ::devil

I'm going to do this for the next 40 days and I must say I'm curious as to how this will work out.

Oh, nearly forgot, I started out with saying it's O.K. to be who I am, it's O.K. to feel how I feel, it's O.K. to look how I look and then I went on for a few minutes about what a beautiful person I am (it even feels weird to write this::chin, guess I've got a lot of work ahead of me)

I "think" this technique originated from Claude Bristol in his book 'The Magic of Believing'. I think subsequent teachers have used the technique, but I "think" it originated from him (there's certianly a section  on it in his book, and since it was written decades before the likes of Anthony Robbins, Louise Hay etc, I think this may be it's origin).

I was listening to this brilliant interaction between Ramtha and Merv Griffin and thought about your question, Ari. Ramtha gives a wonderful and very Abeish answer ~

'Merv Griffin: The kingdom of heaven is within each one of us? A lot of us are having a difficult time finding that.

Ramtha: Because you are looking in others for reassurance that it is there or someone to tell you that it is there.'

And I add: look within yourself, see it and KNOW.

Love,
Christine

P.S. I posted this mainly for my own edification.  ::hearts

I like this post, because the mirror technique is an interesting one, since so many people have different responses to it.  I personally, have at times in the past, been very blissful looking in the mirror and seeing myself.  It was empowering and I would in the mirror and see my beauty...I loved it.  However, things have changed in the last 5 years or so, I tend to experience some resistence some days looking at myself in the mirror, other than putting on makeup or doing my hair, lol.   Also checking my face to see if I have any crumbs left on my lips from eating my meals! 

However, even given the resistance, I do intend to start some positive self-talk in the mirror, it might be a little at first, but I think it is empowering and uplifting!  I amglad someone brough this up, since it is a good idea!

My LoA mentor introduced me to this technique.  She tells a story of looking into a mirror, exclaiming how tired and worn she looked, and sure enough, later that day her daughter said the same thing to her.  She realized what she had created, so she found the nearest mirror, and paid herself a compliment.  Not five minutes later, she got the compliment back.  She explained that the things you say to yourself will inevitably be reflected back to you, so it's best to say something nice!  ::LOL

So I look into my own eyes and pay myself a sincere compliment, and wait for a compliment to come bouncing back to me!  It's really ::cool.

 

Blessings,

Toni, thanks for sharing this!  How amazing that it came right back to her, noth the positive and the negative comments were reflected back, how truly amazing...it seems like we can compare the mirror to the Universe, saying that the mirror where we can tell the "Story" and "watch" it come back to us in reality.  I am gonna try this technique starting today, because it really seems powerful, in the way that you have just put it...because I do know the empowering effect of the mirror talk, however, I never looked at it like this!  wow! 

I feel another notch of upliftment, because now, I have a physical symbol of the "Universe" and can imagine that the mirror is the sounding part of the Universe, simple listening to my every desire...lol!

Wow, how cool and amazing!

All is truly well and getting better and better and better...ahh, perfection abounds!

Day 2

Today I was able to smile and the talk felt more genuine.  I wonder if this was just a coincidence, or if it really works that fast... time will tell...

Well, i wasn't very amused about this mirror technique, and i tried a few times without any success. I went into the mirror and asked myself "Inner being are you in there?" and he was never there lol. But Last night, i went into the mirror, and i started repeating some affirmations to myself for example

"I love and accept myself now"
"I'm divinal expression of life"

And after some time saying these affirmations, i started to see a glow in my eyes, and then i asked "Inner being are you in there?" and he was there, I was completely addicted in looking in my own eyes, i felt an amazing love, self confidence and acceptance, that i never felt before, and i started to see my aura, a white light that revolved me.

Again, you have to get in the vortex in order to see your inner being, because your inner being is in there.
Try it, it's one of the best experiences.
