Know Thyself 認識自己

Updated: Apr 21

I believe the most important goal and highest mission in life is to know yourself. And there are two ways to know oneself: 1. Look at your image in the mirror; 2. To experience yourself through the 5 senses with your body. In fact, I believe these two methods can apply to anything you want to know in the world.


When we do imagery work, we look into the mirror images inside us and we engage our bodies and the five senses to experience and repair the inner images. In dreaming, every character and object and storyline are part of our own mirror images and we engage our bodies with the five senses turned in during sleep. In daily life, we meet people and events that serve as our mirror images and we use our bodies to experience pleasure and pain. I used to have a criticising boss who was hysterical and pathologically insecure, now I understand she was actually reflecting how I treated myself deep down. I have a cat of 19 years who acts like the queen in the house, and I know she is reflecting my inner child although I wouldn't admit to it. 😅


I have been a studious student ever since I began my inner path. I am committed, I practice a lot, I continue to study and I try my best not to wince or run away from my own issues. I get very good feedbacks from my clients but I could rarely see my own shifts when I work on myself. I still doubt or belittle the images I see inside and I ignore the advice I received from the Divine. At the imagery class this morning, my teacher Catherine asked us in one of the exercises to "make a vow to serve only the still small voice within you". It was an extremely touching moment when I saw my heart bursted open with blinding white light and the light opened up to a path in front of me, and it was precisely what and when I need to see this.


Recently I achieved my goal to begin giving workshops of imagery. I wrote and designed the workshops with the help and support from my teacher. By sitting at the position of a class facilitator, I was able to see how one exercise flows to another and how our inside moves through an inner journey. I could read images much clearer and I saw each student's dream clearly. This is an astounding mirror image to me as I was too hung up in doing the exercises while being a student and I wasn't able to stand back and see the whole story evolving. In the “Harnessing Your Creativity” workshop, every participant came with wishes in relations to work or money etc. I was in awe to witness their inside pushing through the images of their deepest desires right from the very first exercise. And after finishing the last exercise, the participants were able to understand by giving attention to their hearts' desire which is not coming from the brain, is the key to manifest everything else. I have feedbacks that some of them already made a huge step in achieving their heart's desire the very next day. And that to me, again is a mirror image about trust that I was unable to see amidst my mental conflicting dialogues.


I now learnt and verified that one cannot suppress that "still small voice" within you, and your inside will push through the very experience that is for your highest good for you if you allow it.


我相信人生中最重要的目標和最高使命就是認識自己。要認識自己有兩種方法:1. 照鏡子看自己;2. 通過身體和五種感官來體驗自己。事實上,我相信這兩種方法可以適用於任何你想認識的事物。


當進行「視覺心像」練習時,我們會看自己的內在鏡子影像,我們也會使用身體和五種感官來體驗和修復內在的圖像。在夜夢中,每個角色、物體和故事情節都是我們自己鏡子影像的一部分,睡眠時我們的身體與所有感官皆會轉入內面。在日常生活中,我們會遇到作為我們鏡子影像的人和事件,我們也用身體來體驗快樂與痛苦。我曾經有一個喜歡批評別人的老闆,她歇斯底里和有病態的不安全感,現在我明白她實際上反映了我內心深處是如何地對待自己。我家有一隻相處了19年的貓,她覺得自己是個女王,雖然我並想不承認,但我知道她反映了我的內在小孩。😅


自從我開始走自己的內在道路以來,我一直是個好學的學生。 我矢志堅持,不斷練習,持續地進修,我盡力地不畏縮或逃避自己的問題。 我從個案身上得到了非常好的回應,但是當我修練自己時,我很少能看到自己的變化。 我仍會懷疑或貶低自己看到的內在圖像,也會忽略得到的神聖建議。 在今早的「視覺心像」課上,我的老師Catherine在其中一個練習中要求我們『發誓只為自己內心的那個靜寂的小聲音服務』。 那真是非常感人的一刻!我看到自己的心被眩目的白光打開,光線打開了我前方的路徑,而這正是我此刻需要看到的東西。


最近我實現了自己的目標,開始教授「視覺心像」工作坊。我在老師的協助和支持下編寫和設計了工作坊的內容。當我坐在工作坊的推動者位置上,我可以看見每個練習如何流向下一個練習,以及大家如何移動內在的旅程。我能夠更清晰地閱讀圖像,並清楚地看到大家的真正夢想。這對我來說是一個令我震驚的鏡子影像,當我做學生的時候太專注於做練習而無法退後一步來看到整個故事的演變。在『策動內在創造力』的工作坊中,每位參加者都帶著工作或金錢等關係的願望而來。我敬畏地見證了大家的內在打從第一個練習便直接推動並展現了每人最深層的慾望。在完成最後一個練習後,大家明白到只要關注自己內心而不是來自大腦的慾望,這是顯化其他一切的關鍵。工作坊的第二天,我聽到一些參加者已經對實現自己的心願邁出了一大步。對我來說,這又是一個關於信任的鏡子影像,那是我在腦海的碎碎念中無法看到的。


現在我學習到並實證了一個人無法壓制自己內心的那個『靜寂的小聲音』,如果你允許的話,你的內在將會為你推動出對你最好的經驗。
