I want you to take a moment and think about the people who are closest to you. Your inner circle. Your Tribe.
Now think about the qualities these people possess. Their qualities are more than likely a reflection of your own. ‘Like attracts like’ is one of the spiritual laws of the universe, so those around you mirror who you are. So if you want to know who you are and what you’re made of, look at the people around you. Do you see strength, determination, beauty and fearlessness? These qualities are a reflection of you. Equally, if you’re seeing anger, frustration and insecurity, these may be qualities that you recognise in yourself that you don’t like and are trying to overcome.
Seeing yourself from the perspective of those around you can lead to enlightenment. When you meet someone that you truly admire, you’ll likely see those same admirable qualities within yourself. And, when you meet someone whose vibe you’re not quite feeling, accept that this is also a reflection of you. If you don’t like what you see in them, change your own vibe.
When I think about my inner circle, I truly feel like I'm in a house of mirrors. You know those ones that make you look taller or bigger?? My circle is filled with powerful people who are creative, loving and generous. The women in my life could rule the world with their strength and innovation. I look at my tribe and I wish I was more like them. The truth is, I am like them. I am a reflection of them and they are a reflection of me. We share our lives and our experiences, and learn from each other's successes and failures. We can call each other on the carpet and say 'you need to check yourself.' We can cheer each other on, fight each other's battles and walk hand and hand through the the storms of life.
Now, take another look at those people closest to you. Do you like the reflection? If not, change.
