The mirror universe is perhaps the most important and profound understanding you can have about life, because it affects literally every experience you have. It takes everything you try to externalize and says there is nothing external. When you finally realize that the universe is a perfect mirror, reflecting back to you precisely and exactly what you have been holding in consciousness at the deepest levels your life will change.
The actor and comedian Jim Carrey was on the Larry King Live TV Show a short while back and he said: “I believe that everything that happens to you is the greatest thing that could ever happen to you. Everything… Because that is exactly how the universe works. It gives you whatever you are in alignment with and it’s all designed to work on the weakest link you have.”
This is an important insight about life and relates to what was presented in the movie “The Secret” which said that whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting. We are like magnets attracting things to us all the time only in the realm of consciousness like attracts like. You and your life attract and become what you think about. One of the challenges with this is that what people think about is what they don’t want and so they end up attracting more of what they don’t want.
Buddha said, “All that we are is a result of what we have thought.” This means we are the creators of our reality, but it is not just what we think, but even more importantly what we feel. Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what is in the process of becoming manifest. So what you focus on with your thoughts and feelings is what you attract and create in your experience.
Here’s the way Joseph Campbell put it. “I have a firm belief in this now not only in terms of my own experience but in knowing about the experiences of other people. When you follow your bliss… doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors and where there wouldn’t be a door for anybody else. There is something about the integrity of a life, and the world moves in and helps.”
The Cosmic Mirror
Most people experience the majority of their thoughts and feelings in response to what they are experiencing in their life. For instance, there are bills to pay, meetings to attend, problems to solve and some things not going the way one would want. When those are the kinds of things that occupy a person’s mind rather than being focused on what that person does want, the universe reflects back to that person what they projected with their thoughts and feelings at both a conscious and subconscious level.
What turns out to be your mirrors are your friends, relatives, family, work, talents, situations, possessions, capabilities, opportunities, and everything else in your life. If you want to know what you believe, simply look at your life—It is a perfect reflection of what beliefs you hold at a very deep level.
Here Comes Karma
Everyone has heard the proverb, “You reap what you sow, but most people apply this to circumstances that usually have a negative consequence, like, “He wasted his life on gambling and alcohol and now he is reaping what he sowed.” But it has a far broader meaning than people know or want to admit. It is so broad, as a matter of fact, that if people really thought about it they might find the implications frightening, and yet, on the other hand, it is also a key to unlocking everything you could ever want. In a nutshell here is the key to life, the universe is a perfect mirror reflecting back to you precisely and exactly what you have been holding at the deepest levels of your consciousness.
That sounds so simple, but I don’t think most people ever think about it, or live their lives as if it were true. The very nature of the universe is that it has to give you what you ask for. This is why people of all faiths praying to God by different names still works. If a call goes out with faith, belief, and knowing that there is a God who will answer, the sincerity, belief and conviction of the intention causes the universe to respond. This is the way everything has been set up. It is the perfect system of justice.
So the reason people often don’t have or get what they consciously want is because they have counter programs running deeply within them that put out the opposite intention into the universe. The forces of our feelings and beliefs from the past create the currents that orchestrate circumstances in our life today. This is essentially one of the ways karma works. Whatever we have energized in the past will manifest in our present and future unless we do something to change it.
A Key to Mindfulness & Change
When you finally realize that the universe is a perfect mirror, reflecting back to you precisely and exactly what you have been holding in consciousness at the deepest levels, your life will change. For one thing if you really pursue what this means you will do a deep soul searching, and begin to see how you have created your reality and how to create other realities.
Being aware of the mirror universe also causes you to become much more mindful through the day because you will find you are in the process of creation all the time. This is perhaps the most important and profound understanding you can have about life, because it affects literally every experience you have.
This understanding reduces everything down to a very basic process that is phenomenal. If something in your life is not working you don’t have to waste your time looking outside of yourself for the cause, because it isn’t there. You just look inside and even if you don’t know what the cause is, as long as you get in touch with the feeling it creates you can clear the cause. This is most profound in it’s simplicity.
Here’s the first part of the problem. No one likes admitting they are the cause of their own miserable circumstances, so outside causes are always found, or sometimes a person will say we are all responsible for what happened. This is not exactly true. You are totally and completely the source of everything that you experience. I don’t say that to make you feel badly; quite the contrary. I say that so you will realize that since you are the sole source of your life experience you can create your life the way you want it. Can you see who there is tremendous power in this knowledge?
The place to start is by acknowledging that the first part of the problem with accepting the idea of the mirror universe is that you don’t want to believe it.
A True Story
Let me tell you a true story as just one example. A person was having all sorts of trouble with her car. The first problem was that the battery kept going dead and the car was taken into the shop several times but they couldn’t find the problem. Sometimes the battery would go dead and sometimes it wouldn’t. The second problem with this car was that it would stall on occasion. Again, the shop could not find the source of the problem. The third problem was that the ignition would screech when the car was started. This all happened over a period of several weeks and numerous trips to the shop to have the car looked at. None of the problems were able to be resolved.
This person being a conscious person decided to sit down and do some introspection to find out what was being reflected to them through their car troubles. What she discovered was that all 3 car problems related to personal struggles she was going through, and she concluded that her soul, God, or nature was trying to get a message through to her in the most vivid manner possible.
She realized that what was happening on the outside was a reflection of what was happening inside of her. Here is how she analyzed the situation:
1. The battery died before its time. The battery was only 2 years old. She realized she hadn’t charged her goals with enough energy within herself to succeed.
2. The engine would turn over and then stall or die. In her personal life she couldn’t get past the first spark of inspiration to make her ideas get going.
3. The engine would screech when the ignition was attempted. She interpreted this as the engine expressing its outrage toward her because a part of it’s own make-up was in need of repair and she was screaming her outrage at needing her own internal repair.
Now, I know you can say she was creating a myth or story that was all in her imagination, and while that may be true it was still having a real effect on her life. So she looked at her situations through the model of her life being a mirror of her own consciousness and that enabled her to address her questions, issues and doubts. As a result she was able to get clear and get things moving in her life. Once she realized there were parallels between what she was experiencing inwardly that were manifesting through problems with her car, when she took the car back to the mechanic and he was able to fix the car and it then ran perfectly.
The universe has all possibilities waiting to manifest, and it supports you in creating whatever you empower to create through your inner beliefs and intentions. Consider…while one person is making excuses why something hasn’t worked for them, someone else is busy making a success of it with very nearly the same tools and circumstances.
The Second Problem with The Mirror Universe Model
Why do things seem to work for some and not others? The answer lies in the second part of the problem associated with the Mirror Universe model, and that is that the source or cause of circumstances is usually not immediately obvious. In fact, the origin of the pattern can date back many years or even lifetimes. The beliefs you hold are so intrinsically held in your consciousness and in particular the unconscious areas of your mind, that you believe you had nothing to say about how you got where you are and what the circumstances are. You think you are a victim of circumstances, or that you were just dealt a bad hand, or destiny didn’t shine on you, or you have bad luck, or you weren’t born at the right time, in the right place, or with the right parents. Right? Haven’t you thought about some of those things?
Well, if you haven’t thought about those things, think about them now. How did you get where you are? Was it all blind chance? No. The answer lies in realizing you live in a mirror universe. The mirror universe is perhaps the most important and profound understanding you can have about life, because it affects literally every experience you have. It takes everything you try to externalize and says there is nothing external.
Now, don’t get down on yourself about this. I know it would be easy to think you screwed up somewhere and don’t even remember when or how. Don’t go in that direction because the mirror-universe awareness is actually very, very good news because it means that you can change your life. Rather than blaming yourself or anyone else, you can use the many tools for transformation that are available and you go into the very cells of consciousness that have formed your life experiences and shift or release the patterns.
The mirror universe is the perfect system of justice. When anyone makes a willful choice they set in motion the forces for the universe to reflect back to them precisely what they have willed and projected. The manifestation may not be immediate but it will manifest. This reduces everything down to a very basic process that is phenomenal. If something in your life is not the way you want it, look inside and clear the patterns that aren’t working and establish the patterns to create what you want.
How to Work the Mirror Universe in Your Favor
You may say, “I believe I should be healthy, wealthy, and wise, but my life doesn’t reflect it.” If you think about it you would have to admit that you don’t have a clue how your arrived at where you are. You can’t really explain why you exist, and why all the things that have happened in your life have happened the way they have. It all truly seems to emerge from some mysterious place you don’t know much about.
Everything emerges from thoughts, words, actions, beliefs and feelings we have energized in the past. We live in a field of potentiality that creates and forms itself according to our deepest thoughts and patterns we have set in motion. And yet there is no will or consciousness other than your own making decisions for you. It is totally your will, beliefs, intentions and desires that impel creation and therefore your experiences.
Although, thinking of what your life can be is a good start, you must have the idea and vision of where you want to go if you ever expect to get there. If you don’t have that focus then rather than being self-determined you will be subject to the patterns of your past or the whims of others.
You can either make a determination for love and harmony, or one of discord and pain. It is only when you start to awaken to deeper truths than what the 5 senses tell you that you realize how you arrived at where you find yourself today.
Everything you think and do everyday is feeding into the stories which you are scripting and then live by. The stories you tell yourself today are the scripts that will manifest tomorrow. When you understand how this works it will definitely give you a motivation to make you more mindful about what you think, say and do.
The trick is finding out what you are doing that is creating what you don’t want and discovering what you can do to create what you do want. Start by becoming quiet and still and take your attention away from what you don’t want, and place your attention on what you wish to experience. Once you decide what you want believe you can have it, believe you deserve it, believe it’s possible for you and believe it is manifesting in your life now.
When the voice, vision and belief on the inside become more profound and clear than the opinions on the outside, then you have mastered your life.
