The card drawn for this week is Self-Reflection from Indigo Angels Oracle Cards by Doreen and Charles Virtue.
The beautiful angel in the image is gazing intently into a mirror. Her face is lit by her own reflection in the glass she holds in her hand.
Just a couple of days ago, I had the privilege and joy of leading a room full of kindred spirits in a Full Moon Ritual. During this illuminating time, we engaged in several fun and magickal exercises designed to align each of us with the energy of this lunation and the revelation it would provide. Among other things, we shared with each other the things which cause us to feel gratitude and the things we appreciate about ourselves, and then we stood in front of large mirrors and walked through an introduction to Mirror Work exercises by Louise Hay.
"Mirror work is the most effective method I’ve found for learning to love yourself and see the world as a safe and loving place...The most powerful affirmations are those you say out loud when you are in front of your mirror.
Because the mirror reflects back to you the feelings you have about yourself. It makes you immediately aware of where you are resisting and where you are open and flowing. It clearly shows you what thoughts you will need to change if you want to have a joyous, fulfilling life."
In the above excerpt from Mirror Work, Hay explains why honest and loving Self-Reflection is a beneficial and necessary practice.
This week, the Universe would like to impress upon all of us that the time has come to reconnect with the precious Self and limitless Spirit within us.
You may find it constructive to physically stand in front of your mirror speaking words of positive affirmation to yourself this week.
You may be drawn to take better care of yourself physically through nutrition, exercise, relaxation or body work.
Nature may be calling you out into her nurturing embrace where you will find your mind clearing and your soul receiving the wisdom Mother Earth whispers on the wind.
Perhaps you will write your thoughts and feelings in a journal waiting for you to open its pages with pen in hand, or share your heart in words you need to speak to a friend or family member.
What will you do with you this week?
May we answer the call to take a look in the mirror.
May we appreciate what we see there.
And may we grow to love ourselves more in the process.
