How to Blossom With Beauty


A powerful practice to enjoy self love and express your beauty.

"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to bloom." — Anais Nin

Isn't this a great quote? Doesn't it wake you up to how you might be living and how you want to be living? To be fully in bloom is to offer your gorgeous, radiant self to everyone and everything. So why is it that we sometimes close up and remain tight, hiding our beauty? Is it possible we forgot how delicious, sensual, blissful, and juicy life can be when we're open to it?

If you are like most women, thirsty to prove your worth, as you stepped into the adult world you broadened your shoulders while piling on the responsibility. You closed off your open spirit and let playtime fly out the door. Life became robotic, and yet on some level you know your feminine soul wilted. Consequently, you feel out of sorts when it comes to expressing your radiance and allowing your petals to unfold.

The solution? Get out of your head and into your heart. Connect to that space and memory of what brings you joy and passion. Embrace and love yourself as the beautiful woman you are. When you take the time to do this for yourself, you will live in a state of peace and joy while sharing your beauty and gifts with the world effortlessly. So will you give yourself permission to bloom into the beautiful being you were born to be? In order to flourish you must love yourself, inside and out!

One of the quickest ways to open up and bloom is to fall in love with your body — that's right — every square inch of it, bulging bellies, uncontrolled curves, and dimpled thighs.

Start by standing in front of a mirror by candlelight, pour yourself a glass of wine if needed, and put on some nurturing tunes. Send love to every inch of your body. Thank your thighs for allowing you to walk every day, thank your hips for expanding to allow those beautiful babes into the world and/or giving you that sassy saunter, and thank your stomach for reminding you that we live in a country of plenty. How lucky are we?

Be grateful! When you start to appreciate your body, you'll start to feel more comfortable in your skin and with this comes peace and with this comes the burgeoning of your radiant beauty.

When you live in this space of truly loving your body, you emanate a vibe that is irresistible to men. You will attract men like bees to a flower in full bloom.

In order to blossom, you must say, "yes" to self-love and playtime. Take steps each day to connect with your heart and your true beauty. With each step you'll feel your petals unfold, leaving behind the tight bud and exposing your gorgeous glory.
