We all want to be seen. We want to be heard, valued, understood and seen as accomplished, strong and capable.
And while we are all heading into a new year wearing a mask where we are not seen, who we are at our soul level, is always transparent.
The masks are providing us with more than a form of protection from Covid. They are giving us an opportunity to observe others through their vision instead of our own. We now have this incredible gift to notice where other’s eyes go when we talk to them and while they may be wearing a mask, they are unable to hide who they really are.
So while we want to be seen for all of these qualities we think others value even though we know we don’t posses them, we are unable to pretend that we do anymore. This is where the mask has unmasked those who are inauthentic. And how do we know who is a fraud and who is not?
The eyes don’t lie, but people do, which is why you should be noticing if people look at you or look through you when you speak to them. Do they listen intently when you are sharing your life with them or do they look away? Do they ogle men and women with eyes like a starving wolf or do they look at them with respect and honor? Do they reflect joy and love when they stare into your eyes or do they reflect the exact opposite?
The masks, while frustrating, have brought us to this fascinating place where the phrase “eyes are the window to the soul” have become an absolute gift for us to see who people really are.
This saying simply means we can really understand a person’s emotions and thoughts, just by looking into their eyes. And at present, it is the only way we can truly observe anyone. If you are conscious, you will see who is hiding who and what they really are and those who are not.
People are scared, feeling uncertain and lonely, too. They are feeling beyond vulnerable and completely unseen, because they are so afraid to do anything. You can see it all in their eyes now. Sometimes your smiley eyes and maybe a hello, could be the gesture that makes someone feeling unseen a little more visible.
Give yourself the gift of authenticity this new year. Let yourself be seen for who you are, not what you think others want to see. Unless you’re a liar…keep that crap in 2021.
Allow love, compassion, accountability and authenticity to be your drivers going into the new year, anything in a lower vibration is going to drive you, and you won’t like the destination.
I see you! And I only see good stuff for you, but only if you are willing to be truly seen.
