The week begins officially with the Autumn Equinox as we bring our whole selves fully online for a radical reboot. Just as the Equinox calibrates a still point of equality, a union of Light and Dark, we also have an opportunity to calibrate the lens of our mirror to higher law and order, restoring integrity and accuracy in our perception of ourselves and our reality.
The Sun is officially in Libra today, bringing us into relationship with the Mirrored Self – both through the mind/body relationship and also through our horizontal relationship axis, the part of our consciousness that perceives “other” or “out there”. The truth is, there is nothing really “out there”, every relationship is an opportunity to see ourselves multidimensionally through a mirrored reflection, as we come home to love, wake up to our distortions and mistruths, and heal old patterns of limitation or misqualified energy. We can’t see our blindspots unless we have the courage to look intimately in the mirror. If we’re afraid of what we’ll see, or if we judge harshly our own reflection or the expressions of others, we won’t be able to accurately see ourselves, which means we can’t awaken and realize our full potential for personal mastery.
We must practice looking in the mirror for a healthy relationship with feedback, so that we can see ourselves and unify with each other, through the lens of Love. When we judge or resist anything, we limit our perception of what we can see. We limit the relationship that exists in front of us, which means we limit our capacity for joy, connection, union, and Love. When we open unconditionally, we not only begin to see things clearly for what they are, exactly how they are, but others also feel safe enough to reveal themselves, safe enough to be seen. Intimacy – “into me you see” – requires unconditional acceptance, compassion, and a desire to see it all…the light and the dark, the pretty and the messy, the appropriate and the non-appropriate. Intimacy requires an unconditional willingness to remain present, to open. That we don’t flinch when something unexpected is revealed. We continue to open, mirroring back the reflection of unconditional Love, which nourishes and fuels expansion, new possibilities, new creation.
Remember, Love is the force of nature that sparks healing, transformation, alchemy, and unity. We don’t have to love what we’re seeing or witnessing, but if we can learn to open unconditionally AS Love, our willingness to see it all becomes a force of nature that reboots the mirror and allows us to see into the magic and mystery of the universe. Love is the key to transcending our current physical reality and seeing into the empty space of infinite possibility that exists within all things physical. Learning how to access and see between the dimensions, in the space between the space of the fabric of our current reality. That’s where mastery is realized. And it requires a powerful capacity to remain open and neutral AS the mirror of Love.
