I’ve been apart of two completely different conversations about the same thing this week and it has me wondering WTH? And these conversations have been about inanimate objects. Specifically the two large mirrors that hang in our group space.
In one of the conversations, someone who was leading a workshop in the space felt that as they were talking or working one-on-one with participants, there was a negative energy they could sense flowing out of the mirror. It made them uncomfortable.
In the next, it was someone who was reviewing the space as a potential place to host her workshops and events. One of the areas she teaches about is Feng Shui. She loved the room and specifically called out the mirrors for being the reason. She was awed by the way they reflected the Light and positive energy around the room.
Of course it is easier to hear that someone likes and enjoys your space, than it is to hear that it makes someone uncomfortable. But what intrigues me more.., is why after 8 years are these mirrors being brought into my awareness. Actual conversations about them. When in truth, I haven’t really thought about them much more than cleaning them and their utilitarian function.
If you believe that everything that happens around you is a reflection of your own reality creation… than synchronous, unsolicited, conversations about the same object must mean something. There must be at least a whisper.
Maybe theses conversations are about me taking a good look in the mirror.
Perhaps it is about the ebb and flow of energies that we experience on a constant basis.
Another might just be a reminder – that what we see, feel, hear or experience can be completely different than those around us. I remember having a conversation with my friend Keith. As a way to make his point he said “If you and four of your friends started at one end of a mall, and walked to the other, side-by-side; then you were each asked to describe what you saw, or what stood out for you.., or what you experienced…, Each person’s answer would likely be completely different”.
We all have different perspectives. We have beliefs and biases. Preferences and dislikes. We have every experience, that has lead us to this moment, recorded as part of the conscious and subconscious mind. As close as the bond we have with another might be.., we still are all unique. We experience life in our own way.
What I recognize as a result of writing about this situation, is how quickly I can go to duality and separation. To judge a conversation as good or bad. Who is right, whose wrong. And do I choose to believe the positive or negative?
Trust me.., I was turning over in my head, whether or not I should change, remove, or cover-up those mirrors. Whether they had some energetic impact that others could feel, but that I was somehow blocked to.
But just like the teacher who thought they were beacons of Light and positivity… energetically I don’t see or feel them this way either.
They are simply mirrors doing their job… reflecting. (Like me!)
With Light, Love, and Laughter
