“We perceive a place within them that resonates deeply within ourselves—a vibrational recognition of inspiration—and they have much to offer us. We recognize their high spiritual energy, which longs to be active in our life. When we feel this resonance, it’s reflected in a feeling that’s similar to a warm, soothing shower that’s running deep within us.” Wayne Dyer
I am beginning to really grasp this concept of reflection in its many and vast presentations.
Have you ever been told “you can only be angry at yourself”? Or would you believe me if I told you that every conversation you have is just a reflection of what is present in your own vibration?
I read a quote today from Maryam Hasnaa that offered another perspective on this concept and it really intrigued me. “When you feel a void from missing someone, what you are actually feeling is missing the connection to yourself that you have when you are with that person.”
Said in another way, when you deeply love or appreciate someone, you are experiencing the depth of emotion that you can feel for yourself, with or without that person.
This can be a difficult concept to embrace particularly when the emotions we feel towards others can be so strong both positively and negatively. But when we have the self-awareness to really listen to the conversations we are having and the experiences we are perceiving we can hear and see the areas in our lives where we desire change.
We might think that this change must come about by the people in our lives changing, but in fact when we are able to adjust our thoughts about what we truly desire and believe, those thoughts will continue to be reflected in the people we see and the conversations we have.
You are the center of your own universe. What comes to you is attracted by the thoughts that you have. Only you are responsible for your own happiness.
I invite you to share your perspective on this concept of reflection in relationships.
