Two months ago, I had a fancy photo shoot for my new website. Actually, the shoot was on my birthday. I wanted to feel extra pampered and special on that day, and boy, did I! Everyone fawning over me and supporting me to ensure we got the best shots. I felt like a queen. It was magical.
With the help of my makeup artist, photographer and creative branding expert, the pictures exceeded my expectations. As you probably are aware, I've been sharing them on my website and social media pages. I have gotten SO many comments about how young I look and how I've discovered the Fountain of Youth and to tell you the truth, yes, it feels great to hear these things.
One comment in particular really made my heart sing. It was from my friend Susan. She commented "It's when we find our peace, our glow is shared freely."
She hit the nail on the head. That is EXACTLY what I am trying to accomplish with all my posts that include these photos. It's not about me selling spirituality. It's not about me trying to get people to come to my classes and workshops. It's not about me fishing for compliments. It's not about me.
It's about finding our peace through meditation.
What I want people to know is that meditation has changed my life. It's helped me find my life path. It's helped me have better relationships. It's helped me reduce my stress and anxiety. It's helped me grow into the person I've always wanted to become.
My job now is to help people tap into the wisdom of their soul, by cultivating daily practices that will inspire confidence in the pursuit of living their life with a higher purpose. That practice is meditation. That practice will help you connect to your higher consciousness and awaken to stillness. When you turn your attention to the light within you, it grows stronger and brighter and before long, you are naturally just glowing. It's then that we find our peace. And when we find our peace, our glow is shared freely.
So, the secret to my calm and serene expression? The secret to how I look younger than I did 20 years ago? The secret to why I am glowing? One word: Meditation.
Meditation is the path. Inner peace is the goal.
Inner peace = Outer beauty.
(I'll even let you in on a little secret…I just turned 58 years old. Yep, I sure did.)
