In life we mirror those around us. Every person that you meet has qualities that you possess. The Universe is trying to show you a reflection of yourself. When you think about it, there are billions of people in the world. Did you ever wonder why you know the people you know? Why you live in the neighborhood you are in? Why you work at a particular job with certain individuals? You have attracted them into your life based on your vibration. In doing so, the Universe is giving you an opportunity to see yourself.
Something interesting happened to me. I was friend requested by a man on Facebook. I didn’t know him but had shared friends so I accepted his friend request. He instantly private messaged me and started “flirting.” It didn’t take long for me to realize that he wasn’t who he said he was and the profile picture was not of him. Knowing that life is a mirror, I had to stop and think why this person came into my life and what was he trying to teach me?
In the good old days, I would have just deleted him and not given it a second thought. Being aware of Universal messages has enabled me to “question everything” as Einstein said. My first question was…” Why would somebody pretend to be someone else?” And then more questions, “Isn’t he comfortable being himself?” “Why hide behind a false persona?” Then came the aha moment.
What I realized is that this man came into my life to teach me to be my “authentic self.” No more doing what society expects, what my parents expect, what my friends and family think. Living authentically means taking off the mask; it means being comfortable in your own skin; it means living the life that feels right to you. No apologies. No excuses.
When we pass the test the Universe rewards us by not letting us repeat the experience again. We have graduated in a sense. This opens the energy and raises your vibration.
Take a good look at the person sitting next to you. What is he/she trying to tell you about yourself? Can you pass the test?
