7 Essene Mirrors

“Each moment of our life, the reality of our internal truth (what we have become) is mirrored to us by the actions, the choices, and the language of those around us.” -Gregg Braden

Have you ever heard the term "the people in our lives are mirror reflections of us?" I've heard this term frequently and I even use it in my own life to try and acquire a deeper understanding of my experience here in this lifetime. I'll be completely honest here and say it is probably one of the most difficult things I am seeking to understand and at the same time the most liberating. In my life, I have ALWAYS been guided to the next powerful & most relevant teaching I need to learn to advance me on this path I have consciously chosen to be on. (The LOA in Action ALWAYS!) I read many books, listen to many audios & videos, constantly, always eager and in love with learning the truth of who I AM in The Universe. I am constantly feeding myself Ancient truths & knowledge to awaken more and more of who I AM, WE ARE. One of the many profound teachers in my life that I've been following for quite some time now (and a lot more intense as of late) Gregg Braden, has come into my life yet again at the perfect time. In the video that is attached, he describes in beautiful detail, with writing exercises for you to get direct experience in applying these 7 Essene Mirrors directly into your life experience. (It's a little over 2 hours long and so worth the time listening.)

It is an honor to pass these truths along so you may benefit from and learn how to navigate your life experience with greater ease and understanding.

The Seven Essene Mirrors explained by Gregg Braden. (I attached the video below for those of you who prefer visual & audio)


FIRST MIRROR: shows my presence in the moment… what we reflect by others in the moment. What we are radiating in the moment.

SECOND MIRROR: similar quality, but more subtle: mirrors to us that which we judge in the moment.

When we find that many people show us the same pattern of anger or fear, they may be showing us an internal truth about ourselves in the moment.

Example: Multiple new relationships appear within the same month: PAY ATTENTION because there is something valuable to learn within the network of those relationships.

Look at the people you hold most dear. Look at the qualities that really push your buttons the most. Ask yourself:

“Are they showing you what you are in the moment?”

If you can honestly answer with a “no” then ask yourself:

“Are they showing you what you judge in the moment?”


3RD ESSENE MYSTERY/MIRROR OF RELATIONSHIP: the mirror we sense every time we find ourselves in the presence of a person who, when we look in their eyes you feel an electric charge.

Through the Course of our lives, we give away or lose parts of ourselves. When we come to find ourselves in the presence of another individual who embodies what we have lost, we will feel it as a magnetic connection to that person. Ask yourself “ What is it that I see in this person that I may have lost or given away, or that was taken from me at some point in my life?”

“We will seek to reinforce that which we have lost, given away, or had taken away”

4TH ESSENE MYSTERY/MIRROR OF RELATIONSHIP: This one has a bit of a different quality. Through the course of our lives often we will adopt certain patterns of behavior that become so important to us that we will rearrange the rest of our lives to accommodate this pattern or behavior. When we find ourselves in this situation, we find that these patterns may be compulsive or addictive patterns of behavior. The 4th Mirror allows us to see ourselves in the presence of addiction or compulsion. Through addiction and compulsion, we give away little by little the things that are most important to us. And in this giving away, we have the opportunity to see ourselves as we lose the things we hold most dear.

The most common addictions that come to our minds are usually Alcohol, Nicotine, or Drugs. Issues of control. Addictions to sex. Need for money, to create money/abundance. Etc.

The patterns unfold gradually over time. We give away what is most important to us over time. We may recognize the pattern at any time & find our wholeness in healing. Rather than the opposite of taking the addiction to its extreme.

“The best science now tells us that every organ in our body has the ability to heal itself, every organ, even the organs we were told could not (so brain tissue, spinal cord tissue, heart tissue, pancreatic tissue) — all now are documented with the ability to heal themselves if they are given the right environment, and that environment is directly connected to thoughts, feelings and emotions, how we feel about this world.”

- Gregg Braden

THE 5TH ESSENE MIRROR: This one is perhaps the single most powerful pattern. Through this mirror, we can see more and understand to a greater level why we’ve lived the lives we live. It is the mirror that our parents showed us through the course of our childhood lives with them. Through this mirror we are asked to allow for the possibility, to entertain the possibility that perhaps the actions of our parents toward us are mirroring our beliefs and expectations of what may be the most sacred relationship we’ll ever know in our lifetime: The relationship between us and our Heavenly Mother & Father. It is through this relationship with our earthly parents that our parents are showing us ourselves in that expectation and belief of that Divine relationship.

For example: If we find ourselves in a relationship with our parents where we feel judged, constantly. Or that we feel our best is never good enough. There is a HIGH probability that what is being mirrored is our belief within ourselves that we may not be good enough. Or that we may not have accomplished that which may have been expected of us.

It’s a very powerful yet subtle mirror. Through our perceptions of ourselves and our creator, it may tell us more about why we’ve lived our lives as we have than any other.

If you feel something inside of you welling up that says “NO WAY,” you’ve likely encountered something that could be really powerful. The only way you’ll have a response is when you are being shown something that is so deep you may have chosen to avert looking at it in the past.

(In the video attached Gregg Braden walks you through a written exercise where you write down positive and negative words to describe your parents or the people who mostly raised you when you were a child)

There is a good possibility that the words (positive & negative) you use to describe your parents have very little to do with those you call Mom and Dad. With those words, what you are describing is a mirror. This is the mirror your parents have held to you of the most sacred relationship you will experience. The way you see your Mother and Father (The words you use) of this world is a mirror of your expectations of the relationship you have with your Heavenly Mother and Father.

There are many ways to look at this. Could it be possible that inviting you to this world lives as an unspoken responsibility that those who raise us are surrogates, they are the closest thing we know in our Heavenly Creator. That they have impeccably held to you the way you see your relationship with your Heavenly Parents.

When you perceived your parents' anger, (often times when you were little) you felt what your Creator felt. This mirror may show you your beliefs, your expectations of what your Creator feels for and about you.

A great question to ask ourselves is

“What would I say to my parents if I only had one minute left?"

"What would I like to hear from my parents in the last minute of my life?”

Through our Earth life, we have the opportunity to heal our relationships with both our earthly parents and our Heavenly parents by recognizing what the mirror is trying to show us, so as to release it.

“Both the positive and negative attributes of our earthly parents mirror to us how we perceive our Heavenly Parents.”

THE SIXTH ESSENE MIRROR: Ominous name: The Dark Night of The Soul

We are constantly reminded that life & nature have a propensity toward balance. It takes an extremely skillful and masterful being to upset the balance in nature and in our lives. When we find ourselves in the greatest challenges of life, it is in these moments that we have amassed each tool that will allow us to move through that challenge with grace and with ease. Until those tools are amassed, we will never see ourselves in the situations that ask us to demonstrate these high levels of mastery.

From this perspective, the greatest challenges of life may be viewed as tremendous opportunities to demonstrate this mastery, rather than tests that may be passed or failed in life.

It is through this mirror that we see ourselves naked. Without the emotions, feelings, thoughts, and constructs around us that we have constructed around us to keep us safe.

We have the opportunity to see ourselves in a completely transparent way and to prove to ourselves that the process of life may be trusted.

This mirror is an opportunity to lose everything we’ve held dear in life and see ourselves truly naked as we came. As we climb out of the abyss that is left after the loss of everything we held dear, and we see ourselves in a new way; this is where we find ourselves our Highest levels of Master.


From the Ancient perspectives, possibility that the forces at play in our polarized world have chosen to come here to anchor. The only way to anchor is for a force or field to hold the mirrors for us. Pre-twelfth century texts show benign beings Gabriel & Lucifer volunteering to anchor light and dark respectively.


Gaze into a flame, at the space between the flame and the rest of the flame. It allows us to relax and move into an altered state of awareness, often without knowing it.

Your body mirrors your belief. Illness is only possible if you believe that the forces of light and dark are separate. If we know that dark and light both originate in our Creator, we will not fear.

As you heal each memory (a single memory) you heal these 3 Universal fears:

1. Fear of not being good enough.

2. Fear of trusting and surrendering.

3. Fear of abandonment and separation.

And the science of compassion is an even greater possibility.

THE 7TH ESSENE MIRROR: This one is the most subtle. It asks us to allow for the possibility that each experience of life, regardless of the outcome, is perfect in its nature. Regardless of whether or not we achieve the lofty goals that have been set by others, we are invited to view our accomplishments in life without comparing them to anything else. Without any external reference. The only way we can view ourselves in failure or success is when we measure our accomplishments to an external yardstick.

These questions then arise in us, What is it that we hold ourselves accountable to? What do we use as our yardstick of accomplishment? From the perspective of this 7th mirror, we are asked to allow for the possibility that all aspects of our lives (each aspect of our personal life: body shape, body weight, academic, business, athletic, spiritual achievements) are perfect as they stand. We can only be judged when they are compared to an external reference.

Allow for perfection in the imperfections of life.

What standards are we holding ourselves which cause us to feel unhappy?

How do I come to determine when I have succeeded or failed at something in life?

The Essene’s remind us that we will go through each of these mirrors through this life. Sometimes multiple times and sometimes multiple mirrors at a time. We are invited to know ourselves in the presence of others through our relationships. As those relationships are reconciled, we become the benefit of that healing. It is that benefit that we carry with us through life as we walk between the worlds of Heaven & Earth.

I am here writing and engaging with you because I understand and am living from my life experience The Student at some point becomes The Teacher. I am a Teacher of God simply because I choose to be. I know that we teach best what it is we need to learn and I know firsthand how beneficial this information is to EVERY SINGLE Human Being on this beautiful planet. We are ALL on a path to get to the same “place” (which is really just a higher frequency of vibration consciousness.) We all have the inner calling to go “home” no matter what your beliefs are. We all have an indescribable inner calling that longs to be expressed no matter who you are and what your current beliefs are.

I express through here as a service to The Imminent Awakening of Our Global Human Consciousness so we may acquire a deeper understanding of how to raise our vibration with that of the Planet as we inevitably raise into 5th Dimensional consciousness with Earth. I would like to express my deep appreciation and gratitude for being of Divine Service.

Thank you for holding space with us here today.
