I must admit I had no idea of the name to this practice. I red once when I was a kid about a nomadic people that were discovered to have lived in
between Asia and Europe many hundreds of years ago, ( thousands?)I forget. It was reported that each individual had a small mirror with him for
apparently a religious observation, or perhaps signaling, though its main function was spiritual, as determined by its religious symbology etched on
it. I always wondered what the ritual would entail.
I have since a small child after reading this, done my own version with mirrors from time to time. I don't use darkness, candles, whatever.
I am a firm believer in looking at one's self in the mirror. The honesty we can achieve is significant. I have worked out allot of issues just by
speaking to myself in the mirror. I am not crazy. It does help to be objective about yourself. When you are seeing yourself it is harder to lie to
yourself. You are right there and your own eyes speak the truth.
I like to say "I commit", or "I promise".....instead of I love you.
I commit to my war. I promise to stay true.
Sometimes I simply say "I remember".
I remember my promise and commitment.
These daily reaffirmations are excellent. I have always liked the idea of being witness to your truth. To be your judge so you are judged by your
truth, your standards. "are you a good person by YOUR standards? Do you respect YOUR truth?"
These reaffirmations are often about our daily life and our choices. They entail a deep spirituality that can grow exponentially depending on the
amount of effort put into them.
They provoke the stirring of energies we have that are latent in our common thought. It takes more than subconscious will for them to manifest. It
takes a commitment, a drive, a power house to wake them up.
The use can be as diverse as the imagination that employs this art.
I think we have this information transcribed into our consciousness. We are linked to prior versions of ourselves while in the tunnel. I think we can
also use this technique to listen in on reality beyond time.
