Here we go! Truth time!
Being 50 and beautiful is at a whole other level. What does it mean to be beautiful at my age?
Let’s face it, beauty at 20, 30 and 40 is an outside experience. Always thinking about things like…How is my hair? What about my make up? What about my skin? I have to have the latest fashion look.
Quite honestly, I still have these moments. I am a Goddess! Of course, I care about what I look like. The biggest difference is I don’t care what YOU think I look like because I love all of myself.
Trust me when I say this…this did not happen overnight. This has been a 35 plus year project. Lol I crack myself up. Yet, it is true. I have struggled with my inner and outer beauty for years, yet most didn’t know it. People thought that I was confident and brave and “didn’t give a shit.” Yet I did, more than I ever care to admit. I didn’t consciously realize it most of the time though. I loved and adored fashion and the latest looks. Hence, why I wanted to move to Paris the capital of fashion and beauty in the first place. The place where you are most judged by your outer appearance and where most don’t give a flying F**K what is happening on the inside. Until the moment you are sitting in front of your doctor and he or she is prescribing you with an anti-depressant. Yes, France has one of the highest rates of depression on the planet! Crazy right?!? In fact, middle aged women actually have the highest rates of depression with the disorder being most prevalent among women age 40 to 59 years old. Yikes! As a side note, I am not leaving men out, they suffer as much as we do. We just don't talk about it.
It makes complete sense when we are being judged on our outer appearances and the results that we must produce. We are all overwhelmed with thousands upon thousands of products and the ways to appear younger, tighter, firmer, bustier and more! No pressure.
Yet on the flip side, I have seen it in the smallest of children as they strive for perfection and are never good enough. Yes, this is also in all countries around the world. Yet my experience in France I have seen it amplified.
Also, as a professional Self-Love Expert, I have experienced an increase in clients striving for more Self-Confidence and a desire for an increase in Self-Esteem.
So, what does this have to do with “Beauty At My Age”?
Everything. See Beauty stems from the inside and the more I have studied this and have assisted others on their journeys, the more this truth rings loud and clear!
The day I woke up on my 50th birthday and looked in the mirror. I remember seeing Leona. This beautiful young woman with wisdom lines around her eyes and realized you are the most beautiful I have ever seen you. Look at you, confident, self-assured, radiant, living the life of your dreams, experienced and wiser than you have ever been.
Don’t get me wrong here. I love my beauty products. All my creams and lotions and magic potions. The difference again is I Love Myself! I am not striving for perfection on the outside, I am enjoying the perfection on the inside. Yet I also love to experience my outside beauty to the fullest. Does that make sense?
I also want to let you in on a little secret. Last year when I turned 50…I was offered to work with a series of companies in the Beauty industry who create Quantum Energetic Beauty Products. Their products align you on the inside, so you may experience more of your true outer beauty. So of course, it was an easy yes and fits perfectly in alignment with my work as a Self-Love Expert. Hmm…funny how the Universe works.
Beauty at my age is so much more than what we are taught and shown. Beauty at my age is the accumulation of life experiences. It is the realization that my beauty stems from the inside.
I love myself! All of me! That is my desire for all of humanity! To realize their beauty at ANY AGE and enjoy the experience.
I would love to hear your thoughts around Beauty.
Much love and light always,
By definition, Beauty is something that is pleasing to the sensory systems or the mind, aesthetically. Simple enough, right? And yet, there is a deeper, more conscious context within which to discuss and analyze beauty. Have you ever walked into a party and felt the presence of one person who is lighting up the room, dazzling the crowd through words, gestures, and intrigue? She may or may not be stunningly gorgeous. Either way, people are drawn to her and so you will judge her through rose-colored glasses because of the way she makes people feel and the reaction she receives from the crowd. On the contrary, have you ever looked at a model that you acknowledge intellectually as attractive, yet you experience no real draw? They have all the right symmetrical features, that perfect body, and yet when you look in their eyes, you feel nothing. Dead energy. There is no captivation factor.
This person simply does not warm you. For example, I can’t tell you how many textbook “hot” guys I have absolutely no interest in. I am neither captivated nor attracted. The mojo is missing. And do you know what the difference is? Captivation and perception of beauty has everything to do with one’s capacity to emit frequency and to hold a denser field of photons in the energy that imbues and surrounds the physical body. In other words, beauty has to do with one’s ability to hold light, literally. Light is what draws. Light is what captures. Light is what heals. Light feels good. Light is beauty. It was the late, great Maya Angelou who said, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
When we discuss aesthetics, we refer to what is pleasing to the senses and how we interpret what is "beautiful". From my work as an "Energy Healer and Heart Activator" using a variety of techniques to purify the multidimensional energy systems in order to reconnect my client with their inner glow and high-vibe, “sparkle factor”, while having a background in fashion, I know that the interpretation of what we find attractive has a much more holistic range than what is commonly discussed. Looking exclusively at someone’s physical appearance in judgment of attractiveness is like focusing on one colour of the rainbow, when you feel the rich, expansive diversity of light from the entire spectrum of photons and the power of that full range is what magnetically draws you in. And yet you call that feeling “pink”, because your scope of awareness is limited. Usually, people aren’t fully conscious of why they are attracted to someone, or something. I believe it has everything to do with the relationship between energetic dynamics and the capacity for captivation, and how that relationship affects one’s physical appearance.
You see beautiful ones, to give you a little foundational background: we are Light Beings. Humans are vast and powerful. Humans are multidimensional. When I say this, I mean that there are many dimensions of existence that make up the totality of who you are, beyond this physical understanding. We are made of matter, but behind all matter is an energetic component and the energy systems behind the physical body are beautiful, complex and connected to spirit. We learn that all matter has an energetic component in middle school science classes, but fail as adults to apply this idea to the human body. In fact, everything is energy. Energy is the substance that precedes all physical manifestations in this world. We are drawn to energy or we are repelled by energy. We discuss someone’s “vibe” without fully understanding that this concept refers to the rate at which one literally vibrates.
And guess what? You can shift your vibration. This is your power. The higher your vibration the more light you hold in your field. And know this: what exists as vibrational patterns within you will be manifested into your external world physically. This is Law of Attraction 101. So, instead of focusing on the external component of a difficult situation, we must first learn to focus internally and balance the vibrations. Thereafter, continue to focus on healing the physical components.
Often those who wish to release weight are dealing with a deeper, core energetic pattern associated with the need to protect oneself, and commonly an inability to let go of the past. They are heavy in their field, thus heavy in their bodies. Focusing on light and Self-Love must come first, or at least accompany the physical measures you take to release weight. And so it is with beauty. If there is a blockage in your internal or external energy field often times we will see this in facial features, skin rashes, dark circles, puffiness, bloating, lack of radiance, skin blemishes and acne, weight loss, weight gain, tightness in the jaw, poor posture, or even hair loss. People who unconsciously slump their shoulders are energetically trying to protect their hearts.
So you see, it really is amazing, and quite a new realization through my experiences with my clients, that sometimes after a session people will physically look younger, brighter and more relaxed. And to reiterate, the reason is that when we hold onto blockages in our energy, often times you see it physically. So the old saying goes: "As above so below." This idea relates to my previous explanation that, and I will say it until I am blue in the face, behind all matter is an energetic component. I can literally tell in my friend’s facial features when it’s time for a good ol’ energy clearing
As a culture, we are progressively on the brink of understanding how emotions, vibrations, energy and frequency affect the mind and the body. When you learn to let go of your blockages on an energetic level, it frees up space within your vibrational field to align with the highest possible frequencies of light. As that alignment is reached your outer world will thus reflect your new, empowered state.
You get closer to your natural essence, authenticity, and unique perfection. The physical follows suit to the energetic precedent. Perfection has nothing to do with external standards of symmetry and cultural idolization. Perfection has to do with your genuine alignment with spirit, with the universe, with source energy. When that most important, intimate and powerful relationship is attended to, first and foremost, all else falls into place and the people around you will respond to it. This is when Beauty Meets Divinity. This is when beauty has consciousness and depth. This is where beauty captivates and heals. Hold your light Beautiful Ones and be you. All the power of the universes exist within you, as you learn to harness the full range of your creative capacity. When you do this, you glow. You shine, and your walk becomes Sacred. All we must learn to do is shine the light that we already are.
With love always from me and my team
