Do you want others to view you differently?
Do you want to view YOURSELF differently?
Do you want to see yourself as beautiful, happy, and successful?
I have an interesting story to share with you that helped me to realize at an even deeper level – it doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside – you can radiate beauty!
A woman came into my salon the other day, and she was homely. Her hair was greasy and smelly, her eyes were bug-eyed, she had a front tooth missing, and was overweight and frumpy. And she wasn’t just physically not attractive, she was also miserable and grumpy.
She came into the salon to have her hair done, but she didn’t allow me to wash her greasy hair because she said she was allergic to shampoo.
I believe that I create everything in my life, and I believe that I attracted this woman for a reason. It was a gift for me to practice everything I’ve been learning and meditating on. I knew her hair appointment was an opportunity for me to find inner beauty, and to love her where she was at.
As she sat in the chair, I talked with her, and I listened to her. She shared some of her life problems, and I realized that her problems were the same as everyone else. She felt neglected by her husband, and was having a hard time raising her little boy.
Even though she wasn’t attractive – inside or out – I still said “Thank-you God for sending her to me. Thank-you for showing me love.”
I encouraged her to find something about herself that she liked. I pointed out her beautiful brown eyes and her beautiful hair that I flat-ironed.
I believe that if this woman focused on one thing she liked about herself, that this would translate to her body. She would start to see changes in her physical appearance if she started to honour herself. And this would grow into her feeling more confident about herself, which would impact her relationship with her husband and son.
You can do the same. No matter what physical situation you are in right now, find one thing you like about yourself. It could be something in your appearance like your smile, or your hair. Or it could be something in your personality, like maybe you’re a good listener or a good friend. Choose one thing. Focus on that. Throughout the day, instead of beating yourself up or complaining about your life or your husband or your child, focus on the one thing you like about yourself.
I encourage you to write it down. Write “I’m a good listener”. Focus on this. Let this radiate through your mind, body and soul.
The more you focus on this, the more you will find other things you like about yourself. And you will start to remember who you really are. You are a child of God. You are love. You are lovable and valuable. You are beautiful.
If you don’t believe me, remember Susan Boyle, the British singer who competed on Britain’s Got Talent. She was not very pretty and her personality was a bit awkward, but when she opened her mouth to sing, it was pure beauty and magic that came out. She was radiating her inner beauty.
My client left the salon smiling and feeling uplifted. I hope you feel the same from spending time with me here on my website.
I would love for you to leave me a comment below and tell me what one thing you are going to chose to focus on!
