We have been programmed that in order to fit in we have to be like everyone else. To be accepted we have to follow the crowd, but there is a reason YOU were created! YOU have something unique and special to offer the world that only YOU can offer. So why not put all of your energy into being authentically YOU!
Yes, this is how women feel. The media has brain washed all of us so we never feel like we measure up. I love how Dustin Hoffman realized it during the video.
“In Blessed Mother’s view, all are lovable; all souls are accepted, all carry a sweetness of heart, are beautiful to the eyes; worthy of consciousness, of being inspired, being helped, being comforted and protected — even if other mere humans believe foolishly or blindly to the contrary.”
An Excerpt from Untie the Strong Woman: Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Love for the Soul by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
As women we get so hung up on physical appearance to the point that this is a female affliction carried in some form by most females on the planet. We think that the only way we can attract men is to be beautiful and there is a billion dollar industry feeding off this issue.
With the shifting of the ages this affliction is being release and the true feminine beauty is being revealed. The feminine energy has been suppressed for 2000 years so you can imagine this hiding was like a veil covering our true beauty as women. There was purpose in hiding the feminine but it is now coming out of hiding. Our consciousness as women is shifting away from concern about our physical appearance toward the beauty carried by the feminine energy. People will be attracted to our empathy, sensitivity, creativity, intuition and receptivity and those are the things that will make us magnetic.
As Marianne Williamson wrote so beautifully in her book, A Return to Love:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous. Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
I love this! I found it on a path in the Japanese Garden at the Chicago Botanical Gardens. It made me think about how we are not taught to see age in ourselves as a beautiful part of our development.
Here’s to seeing beauty in our elders!
