What is mirror work? It’s when you face yourself in the mirror, look into your eyes, and say affirmations to yourself.
Louise Hay, in “You Can Heal Your Life,” clearly describes this simple process. She helps you gain back your power by looking in the mirror and saying “I Love You (put in your name).” This simple affirmation can have a profound effect on your well-being.
We spend countless hours in front of the mirror reviewing our looks, focusing on our flaws and trying to create a perfect look…whatever that is. All of us are unique in our own right, and mirror work gives us back that knowledge.
It doesn’t cost anything, and we gain so much from this daily affirmation. Imagine saying, “I love you” to yourself ten times a day. What do you think will happen? You would start to love yourself.
Whenever I stand in front of any mirror and say “I love you, Pat,” a smile forms on my lips and my eyes start to twinkle. Physically I begin to experience changes within my body, and it feels good. Why wouldn’t I want to feel happy?
Are you ready to give yourself some love today? Every time you are in front of a mirror say “I love you (put in your name.)” It only takes a brief moment to nurture and support you.

It could be a lot of fun to all bring in mirrors and talk to ourselves in front of others. Yes, we will feel embarrassed when we start, though all that energy will help us push past our uncomfortableness and begin to embrace the love we have for ourselves.
