The recipe for True Beauty is awareness of your True Self. I promise. You won’t find it in a bottle, a brush, a boyfriend or any outside Source. And yet, when you find it within yourself all those other things become more enjoyable, more celebratory, more an extension of who you are.
To discover your True Self, swing on a swing, drop your toes into the Ocean, gaze up at clouds, climb mountains. Listen to crickets, a beloved’s heartbeat, or the sound of a baby laughing. Feel your heart open and expand.
To discover your True Self, begin to listen to your mind, too. That’s right. Listen to all the ways it tells you of your unworthiness, your not enough-ness. Listen to its endless list of fears and doubts. Let it show you its patterns and grooves that go way back to Mom and/or Dad. Feel the ickiness of listening to this aspect of you. Become aware of what it does to your body, and to your heart. Become aware that you are not now, nor have you ever been these thoughts.
To discover your True Self, drop down deeper, past the mind and listen to the still small voice within. It might sound like a heartbeat or breath to begin. . . but underneath that is an energetic field that is who you really are. Listen to its gentleness and its power. Listen as it tells you what’s really true. How will you know it’s your still small voice? It will tell you things that feel freeing. You are more than enough. You are Love. You are Joy. You are an abundant being. You are One with all of Life.
Listen to this every day, and you will remember who you are. You will remember that you are here on purpose, on time, and with amazing gifts to give this world. Listen to this voice, and you will walk with a radiance and beauty that uplifts, inspires and illuminates the entire cosmos.
