What do you see when you look into the mirror... as you age?
Each decade seems to show it’s intricate bits on my skin, face and body.
My face once youthful has now manifested my trials…
I admit I have allowed myself to be fooled by the media’s perception:
that outer beauty equals looking youthful.
Both genders primed to receive the subliminal messages....
I’m far from old, yet mainstream society would have us believe that our bodies begin a descent... with every decade.
I say BS.
However, pharmaceuticals and those with stakes in corporations linked to the business of maintaining disease would have us believe that aging arrives sooner than it has to.
We cannot control aging as human beings, right?
What if we can?
Maybe we can extend not only our vitality but also our outer expression of it.
Our technology is so advanced why wouldn’t we be able to transform our outer appearance?
I should see every imperfection as perfect. True self-love means loving every bit of me.
Still, I wonder if it is possible to reverse the aging process not with creams, surgeries but from within?
I say yes...it must be.
Simply because we are powerful beings. I have no scientific proof and yet, I believe we can change so much of ourselves from the inside out.
Only to do that, we have to remember or believe we are truly powerful beings.
It is a journey as always so my starting point is envisioning a bright light warming me where I have been cooled and fooled.
Then, I see a cascading waterfall pouring unto me and replenishing my thirst for truth. The truth of our innate being. As this water washes over me, I abide in the eternal here and now.
Every drop penetrates my skin and cells cleansing me from all hurt and perceived wrong. Any remaining grief, heartbreak, or sorrow...is washed away with the water from within... my tears.
feeling my soft, smooth and tender skin. I smell the fragrance of fresh flowers...
It is my sign that I have come a long way.
I, once the compassionate child, who left her body a couple of times... to survive what seemed too much to bear.
Resilient girl- now a woman. I forgive myself for it was the best she knew. I breathe deeply as if I have been reborn.
As I look ... a softer me has emerged with a gentle, kind and serene expression. I like what I see. A more playful me wants to dance and sing.
My wings spread hovering over and ready to make my dreams come true.
We move towards reclaiming our divinity on earth.
We move in the direction living our brightest destiny. We are lead to re-discover the fountain of renewal....
In the meantime, I choose to be more conscious about what goes into my body... and on my skin. I am reclaiming my power to transcend my karma or to embrace the lessons I had not…
While our age may make a fuss on our face...I know that like fine art, there is more to look at. :)
Do you think the fountain of renewal is within?
Do you believe there shall come a time when our consciousness will have shifted to the depths of our love?
The truth is we are immortal not in body but in spirit. Maybe - just maybe when we realize the limitlessness of ourselves we can extend our youthfulness. Not so much because looking younger is more attractive but because it would be a more accurate reflection of our beauty and timelessness.
