When we choose Conscious Parenting there is no shortage of teachable moments. Almost every situation offers us a moment to share insight, to point out something unique about ourselves or the world and to help our child become critical thinkers about not only their lives, but the world we live in. The question at hand […]
At the beginning of the year I asked to have more patience. There are a few ‘reactions’ that I have that I don’t like and I want to change them. For me, that process begins by first acknowledging and second setting out the intention to create change.
As a Clairvoyant, this process sets a chain reaction in motion. I start to see and gather information that informs whatever it is that I am consciously working on as I search for the root or core of the issue at hand. This is actually what makes my work so unique. I’m never satisfied with just the surface information, I want to understand the why and to see the life lesson that we are working on.
What’s transpired with this has been fascinating. I have always been aware that we mirror people – we mirror their personalities and we also mirror their energy, but what I’m seeing is that my ‘reactions’ are mostly me mirroring back the energy of the person I am dealing with.
For example when something is bothering Caidin he can get a little mean. He says things that can be quite cutting. My reaction can be to get angry with him. What I am realizing is that I am mirroring the energy he is experiencing. I’m not actually angry with him. So now, when these situations come up, I’m conscious of this dynamic and I’m using them to release and shift this ‘mirroring’ behavior.
Looking back I realize that Caidin also does this, he mirrors my behavior. I remember being at a The Children’s Film Festival in Brooklyn and I thought I lost my wallet. I began to panic as I was looking for it and as soon as I began to panic, Caidin became difficult. He was mirroring my panic. I can think back to many times when this was the case – his ‘reaction’ was a mirror of what I was experiencing.
It’s both interesting and helping information to have because it not only allows me to create change for myself, it also allows me to help Caidin see and understand where he holds this dynamic.
One big piece of Conscious Living is about searching for the ‘why and how’, not just accepting that the way things are, are the way they are.
It’s led me to do a little research about this ‘mirroring’ dynamic and there is one school of thought that attributes it to a ‘generation’ of Spirits on the planet. Most are young, but some came in as scouts and guides years ago in order to help this new generation once they arrived. The information resonated with me.
In the coming days, as your child is reacting to something, take a step back (in the moment if you can, or after the fact if you can’t) and see if there was a matching component. You can also do the same for your own ‘reactions’, maybe you too hold this ability.
