What is beauty? What makes someone beautiful? What makes someone not beautiful?
I was considering how to approach the topic of beauty from an energy perspective and it becomes quite complicated.
Would we devote time to each physical element of our appearance that has us feeling ugly or unattractive? Instead of focusing on the physical, piece by piece, what about embracing the concept that this person is a thing of beauty, regardless of what physical attributes they have. Because this really is the truth of the situation, even though it may be hard to accept. We’ve had years of programming which denies this. Decades, even! Entire industries are based on denial of this!
Just like other limiting beliefs that might exist (“If I am in a car, I will get hurt”, “If I don’t control a situation, something bad will happen”), the belief that “I am not beautiful” can be evolved at the very least.
In terms of energy, what does it feel like if you were to say to yourself in the mirror: “I am beautiful”. What’s there? Is it a feeling of discomfort, of guilt, of shyness, of rejection or denial? Maybe you’re adding conditions. Whatever presents is what matters and what needs attention.
Try tapping yourself in the process: Tap the top of your head while looking at yourself in the mirror, saying “I’m beautiful”. Continue through all of the points (middle of forehead, inner corner of one brow, side of eye, under eye, under nose, under mouth, collarbone, each finger at side of nailbed, karate chop point), tapping for “I’m beautiful”.
What are the “buts” that come up? (“I’m beautiful but….”) Any thoughts, conversations, events, images, that spring to mind? Maybe some things have happened in your lifetime that told you what beauty was, and what it wasn’t, and also cemented your own view of yourself within those rules. Tap for all of these things.. “I’m not beautiful without make-up”, “I can’t be beautiful if I weigh more than X kilos/pounds”. “I’m not beautiful because Johnny Smith told me I wasn’t when I was in school”. You get the idea.
- My body is a perfect expression of my beautiful self.
- I accept all that I am, completely.
- I accept my beauty, without condition.
Do multiple rounds on these if needed, really let them resonate and focus on your breathing, don’t rush it. You’re worth it.
There are so many ways to approach beauty when it comes to energy and emotions, but beginning and evolving and thinking about it is surely a positive step forward.
