"Mirroring, How It Works"

December 2, 2010

(Channeling begins)

Djwhal Khul here. Tashi Delek.

Alright. Our topic is “Mirroring, How It Works”. We’re going to work with the basic concept that everything in Creation is a reflection of the Self. In other words, if you look at a person and you say “That person is lazy” then you are in fact calling yourself lazy in some area.

So all judgments, if you will, or assessments of others, reflect back upon the Self. You may look at someone and say “That person is very enlightened”. You’re also then referring to the aspect of yourself that is also very enlightened.

In other words, you cannot see it in another person unless you possess it within yourself. So if you can perceive beauty outside of yourself, you are perceiving beauty within yourself. If you can perceive maybe ill behavior in another, then you are also perceiving the ill behavior within Self.

Now basic psychology, maybe if you work with something like the book “Codependent No More” by Melody Beattie, or something similar to that effect, that was written quite some time ago, but still very, very good at pointing out the mirroring process.

Another way that it’s said is that if you are pointing one finger towards someone else, there are three pointing back. Sometimes this is very difficult to see. For example, maybe it’s a loved one who is saying hateful words to you. And then you are wondering “What part of me would say hateful words to someone I love?” Well you might reflect back and say “Well my goodness, I did that when I was much more immature” or “I remember doing that in the school yard when we were little” or you would say “That’s how my aunt and uncle communicate with each other.” They yell at each other and degrade each other. So there’s always some component within Self.

Now the basic rule of thumb is never try to fix the mirror, always fix yourself. So if you look in the mirror and you decide your hair needs to be combed or something, you don’t reach the comb into the mirror and try to fix it that way. You deal with your own body, your own consciousness.

So if someone is reflecting anger to you, you go within yourself and you clear your anger. Or you acknowledge that it is there and you know you might say “Well my anger is there because I’m mad at that person for being mad at me.”

The mirror can bounce back and forth endlessly. In later episodes we’ll talk about transcending the mirroring effect, because that can also happen.

So at some point, there comes a conscious recognition, that if you looked at someone else and you said “That person is outrageous” then you’ll actually start to giggle and say “I’m laughing at myself because I’m pretty outrageous in certain scenarios also.” You come to rather quickly own what you are trying to project outward onto others.

Remember there is only Oneness. And that’s the good news. It means that as you work on yourself, you are working on the collective whole.

Alright dear ones. As always, thank you and my love to you,

Djwhal Khul
