Reflect On Your Reflections


This morning I was taken by the reflective surface of the wet sand. What are we reflecting to others? And what are others reflecting back at us? Are we reflecting the light of the situation or the shadow?

Imagery can be a fun way to explore this. I can use my camera to shoot literal reflections and I can also use it to explore these deeper questions. What kind of images arise if you pretend to be someone else, how would you reflect the world back at others?

Most of the time we are hard and even negative towards ourselves and when we check in with someone else we realize it was our own self that was unnecessarily being the critic. Others can be our mirrors. They help us see ourselves in a new or different way than how we see ourself. Taking a moment to reflect on our reflections can help us see more clearly.

Comment below and let me know how you see yourself? And how others see you?
