This exercise is done in the morning in front of the mirror. It serves to bring us into balance, to find and see ourselves, to recognize the divine within us and to slow down our day. When you stand in front of the mirror, you will talk to yourself. It is recommendable to write the following sentences on a piece of paper and use them in that order.
The first thing you should do is to say to yourself in the mirror: “Let me now focus on the conversation with myself the best I can.” Let me do my best.” This is important because that’s how you’ll really do your best. The second sentence you will say: “Thank you for existing.” Keep looking at yourself for a long time and enjoy each sentence. Next is addressing the little child inside you, which is still there but has been forgotten: “Hi, don’t worry, I’m taking care of you from now on.” You will slowly start to feel yourself inside and say, “I’m not in a hurry” because thoughts will probably appear that will force you to finish the exercise as soon as possible. Truly let go of all the rush, you are your priority, and this is your time. Tell your grown-up self: “It’s important to know that you always did your best.”
Slowly approach the mirror and smile very slightly with one corner of your lips. When you get used to the smallest smile, put on a slightly bigger one, and so it gets bigger and bigger. At some point you will smile naturally, and that is actually the child in you and you will feel it. This is very important in order to experience yourself. When you smile at him, he will sincerely smile back at you. Do this exercise slowly, if you do it regularly, it can change your life. After it, you will feel calm and balanced. Don’t get up from the mirror until you feel complete and ready for a new day.
