LOVING THE SKIN YOU’RE IN NOW
Let me speak to you for a moment, sister to sister, human to human, soul 2 soul for this moment
Can I be so Fucking real right now? I used to equate my self worth with how good my FACE was put on
I was bullied severely as a kid, packed on TONNES of make up 2 hours before school in the school washroom in grade 7 as acne imploded all over my face. Went from being called ‘pizza face’ to ‘makeup face’ . What was the dominant feeling? FUCKING SHAME
From my own insecurity fueled by societal expectations, cultural + media messages at the tender age of 13 I began using my looks aka my make up face both as a cover and weapon for superiority and power, manipulation. I really began identifying with this mask as ME. Can you relate? .
Fast forward to just 2 years ago I entered an intimate relationship with a man who is the definition of WOKE. He began gently pointing to, albeit my infuriation, the way makeup can be worn by women to hide, wield power OR be used to accentuate one’s natural and inner radiance. I really began to question my relationship to my skin, my whole body, my WORTH
The last 2 years have been an incredible + intense journey to awakening, wholeness and a level of self love I didn’t know existed.
I now embody my whole being, don’t feel a desperate need to put make up on before I step out anywhere, I massage my feet with oil before bed, I have sweet little nick names for my own self talk, which used to be ‘dummy’ and ‘ohmygod I’m such an idiot’ . YEP. Opening up to a whole new level way of Being
This process hasn’t been easy but it’s so so worth digging into the sticky parts to reveal truth, freedom and a deep deep love . Showing up with others from True Presence— not from behind a mask anymore. Not needing your approval anymore. I am here, I am alive. The planet needs more heart centered clear- seeing and embodied peoples walking their Dharma— owning our power, purpose and love. We give our power, precious life force energy away when we allow the opinions of others to dictate what we should or shouldn’t do, say, be, have. What happens when we Lean into the Soul’s Knowing?
