Here's a quick experiment if you haven't tried mirror work before.
Let's do this one without too much thinking and rationalizing, OK?
It will be worth it, I promise.
Afterwards, drop a comment or hit reply to share how it felt.
Before you do this mirror exercise 👇🏼
Find a mirror where you can be alone and undisturbed
Then look at yourself. Really, look into your eyes
No preening, no posing
Unclench your jaw
Ease your shoulders down
Unclench your toes
One more breath
Now say to yourself:
I love you
I am going to take care of you
You're going to be OK
Yes, you can say it out loud.
No overthinking. Just do it.
How did it feel?
How did you see yourself?
Did you feel any tenderness towards the face in the mirror?
Did it feel strange or emotional, or just indifferent?
I don't know about you, but I felt like crying. In a good way.
It felt emotional and tender. Like a step towards accepting and loving myself.
I saw myself as a little vulnerable, but felt lighter afterwards. Like I was going to be OK.
That's why I am sharing this with you.
If you found it helpful, please share with a friend who could use some self love 🙏🏼
