Our outer world is merely a reflection of our inner world. What we experience on the outside is a mirror image of what is happening inside ourselves. If we are experiencing love from others, it is a reflection of the love we feel for ourselves. If we are experiencing an absence of love it is similarly a reflection of our lack of loving ourselves. Whether we are experiencing abundance or scarcity in any sphere, it is a reflection of what we hold inside ourselves.
If your outer experience is repeatedly unpleasant for you, a powerful way to create a change is to find where you are doing that same thing to yourself. If your experience is lack; where do you constantly deny yourself unnecessarily? If your experience is deceit; where do you often lie to yourself? If your experience is betrayal; where are you betraying yourself?
Once you see it, you have the power to change it inside YOU. You will know you have shifted when your outer world reflects a new picture back to you!
