- Day 14 Exercise: Mirror Work
Wake up and look at yourself in the mirror. Really look. Discover all of your features as if for the first time. One by one. Honestly look, taking in all the details and intricate features.
Next, grab that notebook and jot down the unique colors and patterns inside your eyes. The slant of your nose. The complexity of your unique complexion. Every line and wrinkle. After you jot a few things down go back to your reflection and stay here for at least 5 mins. Who is that person staring back at you? Do you really know yourself? Your likes, dislikes, etc? Try to really feel the essence of the person in the reflection.
Now smile at yourself. You can use your affirmations or I AM statements here or just have some positive self-talk, but speak out loud to yourself as you create a natural soft smile. Accept your positive statements and affirmations and embrace the I AM that resides within, from your heart center, with love.
- Day 14 Create:
Today is just for you. Love yourself in some small way. If you would like to create a poem feel free to use any style you like. Or just keep your journaling notes as evidence of your progress for today. No rules. Just you.
Here is my creative work as a result of today’s exercise:
Be Present. Quiet the mind. Let go of worry. Forgive. Laugh. Engage in Nature. Hug. Take a walk. Read. Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others. Write. Create art. Help a stranger. Breathe. Learn yoga. Share a meal. Share your light. Listen. Cry. Embrace gratitude. Spread joy. Love.
Love and Ink,
I invite you to share your poems in the comment section below or link to a blog or personal website. Read and comment on others. Introduce yourselves. Get involved. I’m excited to see what all you lovely souls have created.
Again, Happy Valentine’s Day! See you back here tomorrow with another day of Self-Love.
