The Mirroring Concept

One of the concepts that we teach in Root-Cause Therapy is called Mirroring.

When we judge others (which is a natural human thing that we do as a part of our experience), it can become a key to healing by discovering our shadow aspects.

Shadow aspects are our blind spots.

Things that we do, how we behave unconsciously.

Mirroring, or noticing where we judge others, gives us a chance to shed light on these shadow aspects.

And to see where we are actually seeing ourselves in others

Where we are actually judging ourselves. For example, judging someone for how they dress.

If this is something that you notice a lot and find yourself internally making negative comments as you often scan people up and down …

Then most likely it’s something that you may feel insecure about within yourself.

The root-cause of this shadow aspect could be one of many layers, and will be different from person to person.

But for example it may be…

  • being judged harshly as a child or teen about your looks
  • being bullied at school for how you dressed
  •  witnessing car givers being judgmental of themselves and others on appearance
  • feeling a great sense of lack around clothing in childhood
  • experiencing kind of abuse/trauma later in life

These are possible core wounds.

On the surface, we may justify our judgements as just having high standards, having an exceptional taste.

Our ego wants to protect us and avoid the pains of the past, and in doing so the ego takes over and it could look like;

  • overspending above our means to look a certain way to avoid shame
  •  letting go of or avoiding deep relationships with others that we judge on the surface level as not enough
  • only spending time with others with similar core wounds to unconsciously justify and uphold the belief systems created from our pain

But, if we were to start becoming more self-aware of our internal dialogues…

  • There is so much liberation
  • There is so much more peace
  • There is so much more love
  • There is so much more growth
  • There is so much more expansion

When we recognize the moment that we are judging … it’s an opportunity to learn more about ourselves.
 

An opportunity to create a more compassionate society.

So next time you find yourself judging,

  • Recognize it
  • Turn the judgement around as a statement about yourself
  • See what you discover

Peace & Blessing,

Melissa Hiemann, (Creator of Root-Cause Therapy)
