There are certain times of year, particularly around holidays, we tend to assess our relationships with others. Many of us are unaware or forget a simple fact - your relationships mirror your internal landscape. Whatever's going on inside, will show up on the outside - especially in relationships with those closest to you. The Universe aligns us with people who mirror back to us the harmony or lack of, that we’ve created within ourselves. If there are areas of healing needed we will meet people who magnify these areas and force us to deal with them straight on. There are no exceptions and the Universe makes no mistakes. This is known as the Law of Attraction and you can use it to help yourself heal. However, all to often, we tend to repeat patterns, and these patterns do not serve our higher purpose. That’s why relationships tend to be some of our greatest spiritual assignments.
Here is a list of questions to ask yourself. Which of these brings light to things you need to focus on to increase your self love?
