The Mirror Technique
I was thumbing through “The Magic of Believing” by Claude M. Bristol recently. This book is a classic being published in 1948. One of the chapters in this book is titled, The Mirror Technique for Releasing the Subconscious. Mirror work is very useful for helping you manifest anything that you want.
“Get the picture of what you want and keep telling yourself that you’re going to get it.” page 97
In order to manifest what you want, you must convince yourself that you really want what you desire and you really deserve to have what you desire. One way to do that is by looking deep into your eyes and declaring it so. I have summarized the steps to using the mirror technique outlined in the book below.
The Mirror Technique - page 107
Stand in front of a mirror that you can see yourself from the waist up.
Come to attention – stand fully erect, bring your heels together, pull in your stomach, keep your chest out and your head up.
Breathe deeply three to four times until you feel a sense of power, strength, and determination.
Look into the very depths of your eyes.
Tell yourself that you are going to get what you want – name it aloud, so you can see your lips moving and you can hear the words uttered.
Make a regular ritual of it, practice doing it at least twice a day, mornings and evenings.
You can augment this by writing with soap on the face of the mirror any slogans or key words you wish, so long as they are the key to what you have previously visualized and want to see in reality. (I would also suggest using post-it notes.)
Here is a suggestion from Tecca in Ohio... instead of soap or post it notes.....using a wipe board marker on the mirror works wonderful and it comes off easy. I do this a lot. Plus you can use colors too.
“Within a few days you will have developed a sense of confidence that you never realized you could build within yourself.” Page 108
Keep a mirror on your desk and declare what you desire once every hour.
Use the mirror in your car to declare what you desire at every stop light.
Each time you use the restroom, shower or brush your teeth declare what you desire in the mirror.
Remember…Where your attention goes, energy flows, so keep your eyes on the prize.
