Understanding the Mirror Principle: Transforming Your Inner World to Change Your Reality

Have you ever heard of the mirror principle? If not, I’m glad you’re here. Learning the mirror principle and how to apply it to your life will transform your life in ways that you could only imagine.

The mirror principle states that your outer world mirrors your inner world. This means that your outside physical reality directly reflects your inside reality, which consists of your emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. So, if you want to see a change in your outer world, you need to change your inner world FIRST. Unfortunately, this isn't usually how humans operate. We tend to focus more on what we can sense with our 5 senses, which makes us work harder with less and less to show for it.

So, how do we apply the Mirror Principle? First, we must understand that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience, not vice versa. This is important because getting lost in this 3D reality is easy. But we can’t forget the essence of what and who we are; we must also remember how we create. So let’s talk about that.

There are three planes of existence that we create on: the physical, mental, and spiritual planes. The physical plane is what we sense with our five senses. The mental plane is our thoughts, beliefs, and what we imagine. The spiritual plane will be our emotions, vibrations, and connection to God or source. Together, these three planes make up our reality. The physical plane makes up only about .1% of reality, and the spiritual and mental planes make up 99.9999%. The physical plane SHOULD NOT be where our primary focus is because it is not what the majority of our reality is made of.

So, how does focusing on your inner reality look?

At the heart of applying the Mirror Principle lies the practice of meditation. Meditation serves as our portal to inner exploration, helping us to quiet the noise of external distractions and dive into the depths of our consciousness. By dedicating time each day to meditation, we build our mindfulness, increasing our ability to observe our thoughts and emotions without judgment.

Journaling is helpful for the same reasons. Start a daily journaling practice where you write out how you're feeling, what’s on your mind, etc. The more you honestly write about your emotions and internal state, the more you will become aware of and understand it.

But you can’t just leave it at a 20-minute meditation and journal entry. You have to check in on your internal state and check in with yourself throughout the day. Ask yourself how you are feeling and chime in when you're in a daydreaming state. Overall, be hyper-aware of what's going on in your body and mind. This isn’t just one-and-done; this will be continuous work. But the more you practice it, the better you’ll become.
