Here’s a fun technique for bolstering your self-image: See Your Golden Child archetype (part of Self) in the Mirror! Your Golden Child is that part of you that is bright and outgoing, full of charm and generosity in (her/his) most positive expression.
Look your Golden Child in the eyes in your mirror (outwardly or inwardly). Notice her or his shining expression and gleaming smile, maybe with a bit of mischief in the eyes. Let her or him speak to you, too. What is your Golden Child telling you? What is s/he asking you to do TODAY in order to allow this important facet of your Self to express itself through your thoughts, words and actions?
Feel free to print this post out and write out a dialogue with your Golden Child in the Mirror space below. Just as an example, here is a brief version of my own Mirror Conversation with my Golden Child today:
GC: I SEE YOU!
LW: Ahah, I remember that from Finding Dory and from Avatar too.
GC: But, do you get it?
LW: Sure, “I SEE You!” And since you are ME, too—
GC: Well, a “part” of You as you soooo like to say—
LW: OK, as you are an important part of US, thank you for Seeing Me, and for Being Here!
GC: Go get’em Tiger!

LW: Excuse me?
GC: You know what I am saying, now FEEL IT. BE IT. The Bengal Tiger you were when we were on the Buff State Fencing Team, right?
LW: You were with me a lot back then…
GC: You bet I was/am! Time is an Illusion, remember? So, ET LA! EXHALE! LUNGE!!!
I invite you to write YOUR OWN Golden Child dialogue or affirmation in the MIRROR:
