This is part three of a series on the Seven Essene Mirrors. In part one we learned at the first mirror reflects back to us that which we are at present. In part two we examined the second mirror and its ability to reflect to us that which we judge. So now we come to the third mirror and its ability to reflect back to us something we have lost, have given away, had taken away or had stolen [from us] in our own lives. “… Every relationship is a relationship with self and often we try to reclaim what was lost, we gave away, or had taken away as a child. It could be joy, innocence, honesty and integrity, courage or love. All of which can be reclaimed within self.” The Seven Essene Mirrors - by James Gilliland.

The third mirror involves experiencing a beautiful feeling upon gazing into someone's eyes. This brings to mind the lyrics of a song written by Harry Connick Junior… Some Enchanted Evening.

“Some enchanted evening
You may see a stranger,
You may see a stranger
Across a crowded room
And somehow you know,
You know even then
That somewhere you'll see her
Again and again.”

In the eyes of the other, when this magic happens, we are reminded of something that we have lost or left behind in order to survive in our present situation. This powerful recollection draws us to this person. “… In the presence of this person, we feel…an electric shock, the hairs are creeping. What happens at that moment? Through the wisdom of the third mirror is allowed access to Innocence, we renounce much of ourselves to survive the experience of life.” globalheart.nl

Having an experience with a person who reflects things we have lost earlier in life drives us to want to fill that hole in our hearts. It actually creates a physiological response in the body that creates a feeling of magnetic attraction for that person. When we experience this perception, instead of assuming that this is love at first sight, we would do well to pause for a moment to ask ourselves a question: ‘What does this person have that I have lost or abandoned or [has ] been taken away from me?’ There are several emotional indicators that point toward experiencing a loss earlier in life:

Fear of being left alone
Lack of meaning in life
Feeling empty/hollow inside
The absence of true happiness or fulfillment
Addictive behavior (to escape the emptiness)
Emotional numbness
Inability to slow down/workaholism (as a form of escape)
Chronic boredom

According to James Gilliland

“…[w]e live in an action/reaction world known as the Plane of Demonstration where consciousness creates reality. We manifest and magnetize people and events into our lives according to our consciousness.”

Identifying what we have renounced, such as vulnerability or a sense of innocence, can open up a whole new dimension in life that we have previously denied in ourselves.
