Reflector

The right environment is key to a Reflector’s happiness.

A Reflector’s gift to the world is experiencing diversity with awe and wonder and reflecting the health of a group or an organization. They have a gift for discernment.

Reflectors are without definition in any of their centres and make up just over 1% of the population. Their strategy is to wait a full cycle of the moon before making major decisions (i.e. love, business partnership, career, life changes, moving, having children, etc.) to find clarity, leading to a life of more surprise and less disappointment.

A Reflector’s presence is a mirror for others. In groups, people’s sense of themselves and the group is mirrored through the Reflector. They are the true mirrors for society with the greatest potential for wisdom out of all the types. They have the ability to take on and become many different things. They can mould to their environment and embody what is taking place. Their auras are said to be like Teflon. Nothing sticks to them. Like the moon, they move on to another phase without getting caught up in the drama that the Solar Types can emit.

They are learning to reflect rather than to identify. Energetically, they are like blank slates with very little of their own defined energy. Growing up in a world where you have to know who you are is confusing for Reflectors most of all. Understanding that they operate so differently from 99% of the world, and that that is okay, is the best place to start for a Reflector.

As mentioned before, Reflectors are LUNAR types and make up just over 1% of the population. Just like the moon doesn’t generate its own light and instead REFLECTS the light of the sun, so do Reflectors mirror, absorb or magnify the energies of the other types through their nine open centres.

Because their Identity Centre is open, they are designed to try many things throughout the course of their life, so they shouldn’t beat themselves up if they’ve changed careers multiple times, gone back to school or changed their course of study, or followed a “non-traditional” career/family/love path. That’s exactly what they were designed to do!

In fact, a great guiding question for Reflectors is “Who am I today?” or “What new/fresh experience will I have today?” Their one true internal “authority” of sorts is FEELING GOOD, and what feels good will change depending on where they are and who they’re with. The 28 day Lunar Authority waiting period applies to the major decisions in their life (i.e. love, business partnership, career, life changes, moving, having children, etc) AND NOT the mundane, day-to-day decisions (i.e. what to have for lunch, picking a new pair of shoes, etc). The lighter decisions are to be made simply by following what feels good in the moment, which again is why it’s so important to curate the people they have around them!

AUTHORITY

LUNAR

AUTHORITY: It’s how you know if a decision is correct for you or not. Lunar Authority is related to 28 day cycle of the moon and is very different than any of the Authorities of the other Solar Types (Generators, Projectors & Manifestors).
You know you have Lunar Authority if all 9 centres in your chart are open/white.

WHAT THIS MEANS

Your Authority is tied to the cycles of the moon, unlike the other Solar Types whose purpose “shines” through them like the sun. Like the moon, the Reflector’s glow is subtle, yet brings forth great influence, especially when recognized by others.

The 28 day Lunar Authority waiting period applies to the major decisions in their life (i.e. love, business partnership, career, life changes, moving, having children, etc) AND NOT the mundane, day-to-day decisions (i.e. what to have for breakfast, when to walk the dog, etc). The lighter decisions are to be made simply by following what feels good in the moment, which again is why it’s so important to curate the people they have around them!

HONE YOUR CRAFT, LIVE YOUR ART

In the natural and healthy state, a Reflector is simply open and experiences how everything comes and goes, every breath and every heartbeat; how life happens in the moment. The moon highlights a gate and then it leaves and then it comes and creates a channel and then it leaves.

Being a Reflector in a healthy state is incredibly light. Therefore Reflectors often enjoy being around children and children enjoy being around Reflectors because the nature of a Reflector is child-like. They have the ability, like children, to live in the now and not worry about anything. For example, crying if something hurts, then 5 minutes later laughing about something very funny!

But the homogenized culture doesn’t recognize and support that. Differentiation is still very rare and the Reflector is incredibly sensitive to its environment and takes that all in, and in essence, becomes the environment.

If it is a “negative” environment, the Reflector lives that out. The Reflector may be seen as the problem. Just like the “canary in the coal mine,” the Reflector reveals the symptoms of a poisoned environment.

In that case, the Reflector can be painfully aware of its “other-ness” and might see itself as the problem. They are used to being different and not seen. And from this can come a sense of not wanting to serve any homogenization. They can become quite a rebel that serves its unique ability to be the agent of others who don’t fit in, those others that don’t succumb to the homogenized world.

Like the Shamans of Indigenous cultures, these Reflectors can support and promote the misfits and the freaks.

QUESTIONS TO ASK:

Have I waited a full lunar cycle before making major decisions?
For my day to day choices, does it FEEL GOOD to go ahead with ______?
Am I choosing my friends, work and living environments with care?
Do I exercise my prerogative to stay or to go, even though that means I don’t fit it with the rest of the crowd?

TO BE AWARE OF:

Be aware of any kind of pressure to your system. It’s detrimental to your health and well-being. Take your time in making big decisions. And enjoy making the day to day ones with confidence in what feels good to you.

STRATEGY

WAITING A LUNAR CYCLE

Strategy: The strategy is the way your energy type can maximize the way you attract opportunities and synchronicities. Wait 28 days, the full cycle of the moon, before making a major decision and talk with others about it, while paying attention to what you say.

WHAT THIS MEANS

Taking your time, a full lunar cycle, before making major decisions is essential to your health and well-being as a “lunar type,” which is tied to the lunar cycle. All the other types are considered “solar” and have a very different way of functioning. The moon moves through all 64 gates in the wheel in a lunar cycle, and this gives you 9-12 hours at a time to sample the quality of the gift of each gate as it applies to your decision.

Wait 28 days, the full cycle of the moon, before making a major decision and talk with others about it, while paying attention to what you say.

QUESTIONS TO ASK:

Who am I today?
What adventures and surprises are there for me?

TO BE AWARE OF:

When the Reflector is identified (open G) with the power (open sacral) of someone else’s defined G or Sacral centre, then the following can happen:

The Reflector wants to be normal, wants to be loved, doesn’t want to rock the boat (open solar plexus). And sometimes the Reflector can also hang on to people that are not healthy (open spleen) for them in order to not be alone and in order to not be alienated and to be able to live (open root.)

SIGNATURE

SURPRISE

Signature: Your signature is what your energy was naturally designed to experience, and it is probably what you crave the most out of life

WHAT THIS MEANS

You know you’re following your Strategy and Authority as a Reflector when you’re surprised! Every day is different. Being with a variety of people on a daily basis is exciting for you. You’re here to sample and taste test a bit of everything at the buffet of life. Sampling the different energies through a lunar cycle can be very surprising! I personally know of 2 Reflectors who drive a bus and meet different people every day. They both thrive with the variety it brings!

HONE YOUR CRAFT, LIVE YOUR ART

When you begin to appreciate your unique magical difference and give up trying to fit in, you start to hone the craft of what it is to be a Reflector. Your artful magic is expressed in the freshness and surprise that you experience daily and the sense that there is always something more, something else possible.

QUESTIONS TO ASK:

What will surprise me today?
Will I be included, surprised or invisible?

TO BE AWARE OF:

Reflectors can be disappointed in others. Did you feel pressured to act and then it didn’t work out the way you wanted it to? With your open centres you take in the definition of others, seeing the world through their eyes. You’re like a mirror and the reflection of others constantly changes your perception.

NOT-SELF THEME

DISAPPOINTMENT

Not-Self Theme: Each energy type has a different emotion that tends to surface when we are misaligned from our design. This emotion is called the not-self theme.

WHAT THIS MEANS

Reflectors can be disappointed because they haven’t been understood or encouraged to embrace their magical difference. Too often they experience the world around them as cold and disappointing, so they give in to expectations put on them just to survive.

HONE YOUR CRAFT, LIVE YOUR ART

Stop trying to fit in, stop denying your own truth for someone else’s. Stop trying to belong to something or someone. Stop hiding your truth. Stop creating a false identity.

Know that you are fine the way you are. You’re not meant to be someone different than who you truly are.

You are the embodiment of the movement of life!

And you can recognize that life itself is always a surprise. Every single breath is new and surprising!

You don’t need to hold onto breath. It will come back again until you die.

If you try to hold on to anything, you may be disappointed because you won’t be able to see the beauty of being alive.

If you are disappointed, it may mean that you aren’t looking in the right direction or you aren’t in the right environment anymore.

Allowing your disappointment to take place allows you to see if you are on the right track for not.

You are not here to learn how to walk like all the other animals. What if you’re more like a fish and you will never be able to walk? Just forget trying to be something you’re not.

What if you, like a fish, are a great swimmer? Then find the right environment for you where there is no need for walking. You, like a fish, belong in the water, so stop comparing yourself to the land animals!

QUESTIONS TO ASK:

Do I feel confident moving freely in my environments?
Do I give myself the permission to enter or to leave when it feels right for me to do so?
What’s the correct workplace and home environment for me?
Do I have a dedicated, creative space to call my own?
Am I succumbing to pressure or can I allow myself a month to make a major decision?

TO BE AWARE OF:

Practice detaching from what you see in your environment and take your rightful place in the centre of your tribe or community. Noticing the blip on the screen that others miss is one of your gifts. You are like a barometer of the environments in which you live and serve. You have a mystical connection to the planets, especially the moon, and can understand life in ways most of us will never know. You have the additional gift of taking in your environment without taking in the frequencies too deeply.
