Much like this optical illusion, how you perceive the image within this picture manifests as either the Young Woman or the Old Woman. For the sake of this analogy, let’s assume feelings and perceptions evoked by the Young Woman are positive, and those evoked by the Old Woman are not as positive.

If the background of your inner dialog is positive, you see your problems, challenges and sense of self in a more positive light (Young Woman). If your inner dialog is negative, you see your problems and challenges and sense of self in a less positive light (Old Woman).

Remember, as this shift occurs, nothing in the picture changes. It is how you perceive the image that determines the picture you see.

The Three-Legged Stool of Self-Love can shift your perception of self, silence the voice of “I am not”, and give you the ability to relate to yourself and to love yourself as your God loves you.
