Beauty is measured in such a different way than is the truth of beauty. It is subjective! Some plants and flowers I love as most beautiful and another thinks they are not and has different favorites. The world of beauty in all nature is very much in the eye of the beholder. Art the same way. Why we must be this way or that just doesn't make sense. Some people like slender woman and others like curvy gals. Some like blondes and others brunettes. It is not an across the board thing. Our culture is whacked out on this subject. All woman are beauty as are all flowers. That is why I named my book The Lotus Project. The lotus is considered the Queen Of Flowers. We all have that potential to be the beauty of ourselves uniquely and exquisitely.
I was trained a different way about beauty and the power of confidence and magnetism. Like the flowers or trees. Some will be drawn to adore and that match is perfect. Others will find it not so beautiful and that is ok. There is no one plant or flower that every single person loves. So I see beauty more as an energy, a magnificence one puts forth through the form of their hair or body. It is far more powerful than outward beauty, it is the essence of beauty and has more magic. There are poles of energy and certain things are just naturally attracted to certain things. There is no right or wrong about it.
As a woman, I learned to find what my beauty is and revel in it. I learned to embrace my body as it was and in connecting to it, give it direction to shape and enhance me in my most healthful way. These were very magical things to me for our world shares that not. Some people have great confidence and so they appear so beautiful. Others have great beauty but no confidence so their beauty doesn't emanate past the look. We see beautiful youth who have no ideas of their beauty. They have no confidence so it doesn't radiate the room as well.
I learned it as a vibration and that it starts with me. That I call myself beautiful and then the world shows me that. It took a bit to find that in myself but it is easy to do. I just reveled in what I like and I have posted videos on my site about this. You begin to expand that smallest honor or beauty in you out more and more. Next thing you know over time, you are in love with yourself. This is what I am finding now and it is delicious. Now when I go in the world, I hear I am beautiful all the time and I am not an innately beautiful girl. I just understand the principles and confidence of magnetic and alluring energy. It works greater than physical beauty. I own the beauty that I do have and that works magically in itself.
Self care is really an act that makes you more beautiful. It doesn't have to be botox or facials or nails. Infact, I did none of that this 30 day journey but a float tank in salt water. I didn't do the normal things I would consider self care and expanded my understanding of it. It was about caring for myself truly, richly and consistently like I did my daughter. Always making sure her needs were met, checking in to see if I could make things more cozy. I praised her for her good works and shared that mistakes were nothing to get in trouble for but to learn from. I didn't criticize her as I could do to myself. I loved her through all her tantrums and illnesses. I was just there for her. That is what self care is. Being there for yourself in full presence as you would a child or lover.
It may seem small but it is huge indeed for we do not care for ourselves as we do others usually. We sacrifice and give up things we wish for. That is good at moments and it fuels us but other times we martyr and it is very negative self care. We are motivated that one will thank us or like us or care for us because we did and that is not the way it works. We are to master and manage ourselves first. The line, "If mama isn't right, the whole house isn't right" is very true. We just lost the truth and action that we are to make ourselves right not others. We are the woman and masters at nourishing. We just have to do it to ourselves! Others are not as good at it!
So beauty shines when we feel cared for. If I feel pretty it doesn't matter who thinks I am. All the compliments or insults won't shift my beauty power. If I don't feel beautiful, all the compliments and attention will not make me feel that way. We have all had this. We won't hear or receive them. Beauty is truly an inside job. it is also a thing to realize no one is beautiful in looks to everyone. But energy of confidence and beauty within, attracts everyone. All want to be around one who feels good about themselves, men and woman for it is not so prevalent in our world.
I inspire you to care more and more fully for yourself even if your beliefs say not to. We have been trained to be martyrs. It is not real. The magic is in knowing what we need at any given moment and giving it to ourselves or seeking one to support. It is a responsibility that carries us far in beauty, health and life. I knew these things and with this 30 day expansion got a greater experience and understanding of true self care. It is easier than we think. Takes less time than we realize and it is in our small daily acts that the great transformation takes place.
Mmmmmm. Delicious self care!
