Who’s the fairest one of all?

We all know it. One of the most famous lines from a Disney film. People tend to say, “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?” If you say this, then you would be wrong. I’ll save you the time and energy of watching the movie again. The correct quote is “Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?” It’s a slight and subtle difference, yet the meaning of each sticks out to me in a profound way.

The mirror being magic means that what I see isn’t enough. An outside validation is needed in order for me to believe. Isn’t that like most women? We need and/or want to be told how we look, how we make you feel. It all makes me wonder. What would happen if we began to affirm ourselves?

How bout this? I’m the fairest of them all because I say so!

I wish it was that easy or that simple. More work is required. Mirror work to be specific. In fact, Louise Hay says the following:

Because the mirror reflects back to you the feelings you have about yourself. It makes you immediately aware of where you are resisting and where you are open and flowing. It clearly shows you what thoughts you will need to change if you want to have a joyous, fulfilling life.

As you learn to do mirror work, you will become much more aware of the words you say and the things you do. You will learn to take care of yourself on a deeper level than you have done before.


I’m new to this, very new. I’ve committed this year to really reframing my negative thoughts and changing my self-talk. How am I doing this?! Well I’m glad you asked sunshine!

I’ve started with affirmations, daily affirmations, now I’m making my way to mirror work. What’s mirror work? Well Sunshine, I’m glad you asked. It’s basically looking at your self in the mirror and speaking words over yourself. Before I lose you, here are some steps:

  • Position yourself in front of a mirror
  • Look at yourself steadily
  • Say loving, empowering affirmations
  • Repeat monthly, weekly, and then daily

The next time you see your reflection, do something with it.

Let Your Mirror, Mirror on the Wall Light Shine!
