Look In The Mirror

As I came to 2003/4 it was extremely traumatic .

On my own and very afraid at first I looked in the mirror and said ” you are old and ugly and no one wants you ”

Conditioning. I had accepted the projections .

One morning I woke to look in the mirror and started laughing at the Oreo chocolate ring around my mouth from eating in bed just as I fell asleep !!!

At that point I began to ” mother myself ” and would ask myself in the mirror what can I do to make you feel better ?

You (me) look tired, did you sleep well? How can I make it better ?

It began a wave of parenting experiences of self that include not allowing others to participate in projecting or gaslighting !

Blessings & Peace ✌️

Look in the mirror

And say to yourself,

“Your eyes smile

Like the nightingale.”

Look in the mirror


At who you are

And what you are,

At how you are

And how

You live

And make

Each day.

You are the smile

Of leaves in autumn

The tropical pandanus

In summer sun

You are the wind

The soft rain

Look in the mirror

Right here

Right now

And say to you

The woman before you –

“Your eyes smile

Like the nightingale.”

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
