Are you afraid of being the true Goddess you are?
I can’t speak / write for every other female in the world, but I am assured I have hit the nail on the head with this one… bare with me.
What do you see when you look at the confident, powerful woman in the mirror in front of you?
I bet you don’t see the power or the confidence, it’s more likely you are standing there picking holes in your appearance, weight, a spot, your hair, the way your thighs look or the way you dress.
It has become the norm to look in the mirror with hatred / shame. Social media has a huge impact for so many men and women in the world.
There’s a great saying and it really is so true…
Logic & Emotion do not mix
Your goddess self, does not start with how you look, it starts with how you feel. How do you feel about yourself?
Here are 10 ways you are destroying your inner goddess, you:
- Hate to look in the mirror
- Find fault in everything you do / say
- Can’t see the good in you
- Avoid taking risks
- Can’t deal with disappointment
- Don’t allow yourself to be ambitious
- Compare yourself to others
- Don’t accept yourself
- Self sabotage your goals
- Are living to please others
Can you resonate with any of these? Of course there are lots more we could add to the list, but I’m sure you get the jist.
One of my beliefs for many many years was ‘I’m not your typical girl, I should’ve been a man’ – I didn’t want to be a man, but at the same time I didn’t want to be a Barbie doll, woman. I didn’t look in the mirror and see beauty, I avoided looking in the mirror and only did my hair / make up when I really had to.
(Running around after 3 kids and working – I had no time for beauty and self care and I was content with that)
There were many reasons I could find to not look in the mirror or even want to dress up and put make up on. I decided that a more natural look suited me for the best. But then something changed… it was like a switch had been turned on, I won’t bore you with the details but I was able to look in the mirror and see a side of me I refused to for so long.
I learnt to love myself little by little and the woman in the mirror in my eyes changed.
So what is it within us that makes us believe when we look in the mirror that we are not feminine goddesses?
(Granted not everyone wants this, but let’s focus on those that do want to see that powerful confident woman staring back at them)
How we think and how we feel really impacts our self judgement, but also clouds our vision to what we see in the mirror.
I’m the first to admit, that a glamour model is not my idea of where I want to be. Being able to look in the mirror with confidence and not shame, guilt, hatred, despair is a massive turn around. When our self judgement clouds us, the person staring back at us in the mirror is not what we see.
The reflection I saw was how I perceived me. I had no self esteem, no self love and I had no self worth.
My message to you today, is stop, take a break and see the beauty within, because whether you can see it or not you are a powerful, beautiful, confident in your unique way.
The first step to finding your inner goddess starts with self love. Take a moment each day to recognise this beauty, the beauty of your heart. Your heart says alot about who you really are. Stop and listen to what your heart says.
