True beauty

Paying attention only to your outward beauty, that which is “skin deep” is getting your beauty regimen backward!

To truly shine and glow with light, to look and feel and be your best and brightest, begin at your center. The center of your being, your spirit.

This glow of inner health, the authenticity of wholeness and well being can’t be faked or mimicked with makeup, hair color, surgery, lasers, botox.

Old emotions stuck in your energy field from the past, fear, anxiety, worry, weigh you down and dim your light. Others can feel it and sense it in you.

If you do not like yourself when you look in the mirror, if your spirit is flagging, go deeper into your heart and soul, to your inner light and begin here to reclaim your true inner beauty.

You know you are not at your best when you feel stuck and you worry and fret about your looks. This is a distraction from the true work of your life, the true and joyful work of living from your center.

Begin to gently clear and cleanse and heal and release the stale and stuck emotions of the past. Like exfoliating the skin, it gives your spirit a brighter and healthier glow.

Find help in a trusted healer, counselor, friend, or clergy person when you are ready to begin your healing journey, your journey to reclaim the light you were born with.

This will allow the true light of your inner spirit to shine through and illuminate your life. When you are lit up, you are vital and vibrant with well-being and health. You are unconcerned about how others perceive you.

When you have tapped into this wellspring, you will know it and feel it. You will be too busy doing the true work of your life, you won’t have time to fret in front of a mirror, and won’t need others to validate your looks.

Remember this: True beauty is soul deep.

Journey to your spirit

No matter what happens in your life, no matter how you feel, no matter how fearful angry frustrated or hurt you feel, your infinite spirit is always with you.

It is at your center, knowing your wholeness, tending and holding the eternal flame of your being. Your spirit lights the way in the darkness for you to reclaim and rediscover your true self. It is whole and complete and calm underneath the dark storm clouds of emotion and fear.

When you are hurting, tap into the spirit at your center, your wise self, and ask for guidance and comfort. When you are in pain, ask the light deep within you for relief and healing and insight.

When you are angry, ask your spirit, your higher self to show you how to release the anger in healthy ways. Ask to let it fuel your growth and creativity and show you how to create boundaries that keep you safe and protected.

If you cannot tap into your spirit or have never known the light and wisdom at your center, ask for help from a loving friend, kind therapist or wise healer to mirror back to your your light and your amazing bright star of wisdom, wholeness, and purpose deep at your core.
