This recent period of time has been nothing short of miraculous for me. It began back in January when I decided to give Mirror Work, by Louise Hay, a try. A friend mentioned it to a mutual friend while we were all together and as he told her about it my interest was once again sparked.
I first heard about Mirror Work some years ago and each time it came into my view again I made a mental note to look into it, but never did. This last time that it came to my attention something in me just grabbed on and didn’t let go. The next day I was compelled to try Mirror Work on my own from what little understanding that I had acquired from the several introductions I had experienced about it.
The results were no less than astounding; the first time I tried it I began to cry tears of sorrow and joy at the same time. The sorrow was that I had let so much time go by before doing Mirror Work and the joy from the release that I was experiencing. I cried for about 10 minutes more or less. When the session was done the feeling of relief and joy were tremendous. I was truly amazed. That response from trying something that I had only a vague idea of what I was doing encouraged me to go to Hay House and see what information was available for Mirror Work. I found exactly what I needed and continued to do the practice correctly for the next 21 days. It is amazing how much it has changed my life.
Being ADD and dyslexic it has been a challenge for me to complete things that I have started over the years. Some progress was made for me a couple of years back when I discovered a particular meditation that incorporated brain wave technology in the sounds that accompanied the guided meditations. Now with the discovery of Mirror Work it seems that I was as good as I was even better, and I was very grateful for all progress made.
When I was a young girl in school I remember teacher encouraging me to try harder because I was capable of so much more. There was not as much, if any, understanding of ADD and dyslexia when I was a child, so it was not even known to have me tested to see why a child with an IQ of genius level could not perform at the level that they thought I was capable of. I went through my entire education experience thinking I there was something wrong with me, but doing my best to fake it along the way. I really was trying my best, and I did get fairly good grades, but not what they all expected of me.
It wasn’t until I was in college that I figured out that I was dyslexic. My major was Early Childhood Education and I was taking a class titled “How to identify learning disabilities in children”. That is where I learned that I was a child with learning disabilities, and one of them was definitely dyslexia. I recall beginning to cry a little in class, trying not to make a scene. Having an explanation for the way my brain worked was a tremendous relief, but it didn’t improve my self-image very much. The idea that I was less-than was still very much a part of my unconscious thinking.
That is where the practice of Mirror Work made the difference. It enabled me to see myself as whole and complete and to realize that I am loved just as I am. It helped me to repair my self-image and finally believe that I am still as God created me, whole and complete, loved and full of joy and peace.
It was later still in life, long after my children were grown and on their own that I discovered that I am also ADD. With that discovery I began to figure out ways to function at a higher level even with my particular brain dysfunctions. That is when things began to change for me.
Fast forward to the present year and here I am, a grandmother now, and just coming into my own. I can now see myself as a force to be reckoned with. Since my practice of Mirror Work has completed as a class I have been making progress at a surprising rate for me. I am more grateful than words can express for this miraculous change in my life.
Mirror Work is a practice designed by Louise Hay to help the practitioner regain self-esteem. Because of my brain dysfunctions my self-esteem had always been low. I was good at putting up a good front, but I knew the truth and lived in denial of it for many years. Being freed of that low self-image and now being able to actually complete tasks that I start is downright amazing for me and I am over-the-top with gratitude for the progress I have made.
The information about Mirror Work can be found at http://www.hayhouse.com. The introductory information is free. There are videos and a PDF with the training of the 21 day program is free to be downloaded. You may be successful doing it on your own, but I highly recommend that you find a coach who can guide you through the process. Hay House would probably have that information available as well. If you are in the Nashua, NH area I am available as a Life Coach to assist you on your journey to wholeness.
Blessings on your journey through this amazing life that we all share.
