Before me is a large tree stump. Something silver attracts my attention on it. I walk towards it.
It's a large silver ornate hand mirror. I pick it up but to my astonishment it doesn't reflect my image. I examine it more closely, front and back. But its surface does not reflect me or my surroundings.
I feel the presence of my Angel near me.
'What is it?' I ask.
'A mirror, of sorts.' she replies.
'I don't understand.'
'The mirror does not reflect you or this place. It is more a portal or viewing mechanism to see through.'
'Where? What can you view through it?' I ask.
'It's simply a mirror to reflect your soul, your true you, dear one.'
'Oh!' I reply in wonder.
'Clear your mind, allow yourself to connect with your Soul. The connection may be difficult at first but with time it will become easier.'
I sit by the tree stump, taking the mirror in both hands, I begin to clear all thoughts from my mind. I close my eyes to concnetrate further.
Slowly i feel myself become lighter. I gently open my eyes and stare into the mirror. The surface begins to ripple and move like waves lapping a delicate shore. The mirror's surface becomes smoother as the rippling continues at the edges. From the shimming surface an image begins to appear.
