They say the eyes are the windows to the soul and that if you look deep within you can see the persons sincerity and truth! What you’re seeing is their inner-child within; as this is where ones inner-child resides and comes from a place of love. This is the space where your true identity dwells and allows others to see your light shining dim or bright.
Have you heard the age old sayings … her eyes were beaming with joy, or his eyes said it all?! Your eyes allow everyone to see your inner-child within that knows your truth of Being! That is why if someone suspects another of being dishonest or fibbing, they will ask them to “look them in the eyes and say” whatever it is that they are questioning as the persons truth or not.
My Mother told me “when you were born I looked into your eyes and saw the deepest blues of the ocean” and said; “Stacey, I sure don’t know what to expect for us in life” as she was barely 18 years old herself, and with that she said, my eyes began twinkling and so the nickname stuck … “Twinkle Eyes!” Ever since then every card, letter, and present is always addressed to “Twinkle Eyes!” I get into trouble a lot with my eyes as they speak volumes for me, even if I’d prefer to remain indifferent or detached from a situation or circumstances.
When was the last time you really looked someone in the eyes? When was the last time you compassionately looked into your eyes? One of the workshops and exercises I frequently give, is to do mirror-work which is to look deeply into your eyes through a mirror and repeating in the first, second, and third persons … I Love You stating your name! For example: “I Love You Stacey!” “Stacey is so Loved!” “You are so Loved Stacey!” This is huge in healing your inner-child within, as more often than not, we were’nt told this enough as a child when we were spoken to, and it was usually by an adult leaning over us, and telling us what we weren’t doing right, and blah, blah, blah; and for some even shaking a finger at them in their face. The more you perform this exercise the brighter your light will shine, as you are lovingly healing your inner-child within!
This is also a really good exercise to do with your partner, as you are gazing into one another’s eyes for an extended period of time. It’s amazing how beneficial and healing it is in repairing a disconnected relationship, by reconnecting with the other person and just looking deeply into their eyes! You’ll surprisingly, find that spark begin to recharge, and regenerate the stagnate energy that’s been between you for however long it’s been.
An awesome way to do your affirmations is by stating them while looking deeply into your eyes in the mirror when you are getting ready for work. Each time you pass by a mirror, be sure to acknowledge your magnificent beautiful self! You will notice your self-eteem will rise, and you will have greater confidence in yourself, and your abilities when interacting with others too!
The next time you engage with another person be sure to look into their eyes during the conversation, as that is where you will see their light shining dim or bright. Whenever possible always make a person feel better upon leaving your presence. Empower them with words of wisdom, tell them you love them, or give them a hug; and watch their light shine so bright they light up the room as they leave!
Have a beautiful day!
