Even with all my writing and videoing about the Art of Mirroring, something happened to me at the Reconnective Healing trainings that startled me. I’m always reminding people that we are all mirrors for each other. Sometimes I’m blind.
At the end of the Reconnective healing seminar, I got in the line to get my picture taken with Dr. Eric Pearl. I love listening to him talk. He’s funny, bright, astute, and sarcastic. He is also quite capable of pushing people’s buttons. So I waited until the line was pretty much done. My turn soon came and I got my picture taken with him.
Then I gave him a hug because I love to hug. Got that from my dad! As a result, I ended up looking into his eyes with maybe 3-4 inches between us. What I saw in his eyes blew me away. I saw the kindest eyes I have ever seen. I saw love and the smile in his eyes seemed to go down to his toes.
I later told a friend of mine whom I met for an organic dinner. The next morning I shared my observations with some of his staff. They nodded their heads in agreement. As I walked away, it hit me. I was overwhelmed by emotions because at that moment, I realized that he was my mirror. The tears began to flow. I felt humbled and I have to admit, I thought I had to have made a mistake.
But I heard myself saying: you can only see in others what you yourself have. This seemed too much for me to accept. Yet I had to realize that sometimes I am that. And I guess I’m also funny, bright, astute and sarcastic! And I push peoples’ buttons too! Ask my hubby!
