Continuing the reflection meditation practice.
Focusing just on me
This week, as I look in the mirror, I have been inviting in peace with each inhale. Then, I try to give the negative, nagging voices permission to quiet and settle inside this peace as I exhale.
And, I have been playing with jewelry…an idea born from a discovery of metal stamping letters in the garage at my in-law’s this summer that flowed into the desire to create daily reminders that would act as a talisman of sorts to wear around the neck…an invitation to quiet the mind in the midst of all that a day can bring.
This is a pendant I created this weekend.
It is a reminder to embrace my beauty.
When I look in the mirror, I read its words and pause just for a moment and remember. I pause to remember me.
I created it to be read when reflected in a mirror, so it is backward when you look at it straight on but forward when you most need to read it…when you are looking right at you.
A reflected reminder, a reflected invitation to embrace and own your beauty.
