God Of Reflection: “The qualities you see in others are simply your own reflection”
“You are giving away your power because you fail to recognize and acknowledge the many wondrous qualities that you possess. The qualities you admire in others are simply reflections of the same qualities within you. Yet often, you falsely believe that others are better than you are in some way. It is now time to let go of this belief and allow your beauty, talent and creativity to shine through. From now on, every time you see beauty in another, let it serve to remind you of your own beauty. If you recognize success in another, check to see how success also exists within you, and so on. As your perceptions are brought into balance, you become a more effective force in the world and have more impact on those around you.
By acknowledging all the beautiful qualities that you already possess, you open the door to an endless stream of abundance and blessings which stem from the heart of creation.”*

We come from a world of competition, where survival of the fittest is put high above co-operation. We are encouraged from a very young age to compete with our friends, in school, in sports, even in beauty and possessions. It continues into adulthood where we compete for the best jobs and the best mates, going to great lengths to “fight our way to the top.” We celebrate our athletes, some of the most highly paid individuals on the planet, and we look up to the celebrities who have “won” the attention of the masses. But at what cost?
What if we removed these social hierarchies? What if we celebrated each others successes, without jealousy, anger or fear… because we knew without doubt that we carried our own valuable gifts within each and every one of us? What if we shared instead of hoarded our secrets of success? What if we worked together in harmony towards a broader perspective?
Part of the whole new fifth dimensional consciousness is recognizing the value in ourselves equals that of any other human being on the planet. This is a vital step towards higher consciousness; seeing the Divinity within ourselves and then seeing it in every other living being in the Universe. Seeing that we are all part of something much larger, much more intricate. That there really is no “I”… there is only We.
As we bring in more and more light, as we let go of all the old limiting patterns and belief systems, we will see that we are always safe, always whole, always a gift. We will see that we are truly blessed, that everything that we need, want or desire is within our reach.
As I may have mentioned before, gratitude is always key.
