NATURAL BEAUTY: INTUITIVE SKIN + ITS CARE
Last week was all about intuitive eating, re-connecting your intuitive chord, and what it means to really connect to Yourself. This week we're taking the same vibes and connecting it specifically to your skin. It's no hidden secret how much I love skin. My history with acne, healing it naturally, the up, downs, and endless lessons it's taught me, and being infinitely grateful for every last pimple, as it's lead me right here, right now, and helping endless beautiful souls in my practice heal intuitively from the inside out, skin and all.
As that's a huge part of intuitive skin, and it's care. If we're to look at the skin as a separate entity we're missing the biggest piece of the puzzle. That right there can keep you running in circles for years (ME!), to the Derm office (Not discrediting this, I've had countless clients on prescription drugs before coming to see me), spending thousands of dollars of skincare (been there, done that), which only pulls us further, and further away from the missing Key.
That the reflection of the skin, is a direct reflection of our internal Self, and let's dig even further, as healing deeply is the only way I know. It's a direct reflection of our mind, emotions, thoughts, programming, beliefs, expectations, happiness, purpose, and connecting that to our intuition.
Essentially what is Our body really saying. Not just a "Oh I have a pimple as I ate too much sugar this Weekend", but a "WOW, I seem to be drinking a lot on the Weekends, as I'm really unhappy at my job, relationship, etc... therefore I'm using alcohol (sugar) to cover up my deep core emotions / beliefs, compound that with the sugar in the wine, the stress on the liver, and living in a sympathetic state (fight or flight) due to it all".
WOAH. A little heavier, much deeper, but the Truth. If we don't face the truth, we can't get to the core, and therefore we can't heal. Well we can get relief of symptoms through prescription drugs, products, or simply masking the truth, but we will never find the root of it as we will be pulling ourself further, and further away from our intuition. Further away from the question - 'What is my skin (body) trying to tell me, and Why".
Ah ha. Not what you would get at, at first glance, but to get to the core, to heal deeply, and sustainably we must find the root of it or else patterns repeat itself, habits that aren't serving you sink deeper, and your symptoms perpetuate as if you don't heal the core, it's rinse and repeat.
It's why my work will never be surface level. Yes, 1000% I use food as medicine, herbs, lifestyle syncing, supplements targeted to their uniques needs + make-up, and heaps of mind / body work. From my experience with healing my own body naturally, I've found it to be not only the most rewarding, but the most sustainable.
When we literally re-wire our brain, we mold ourselves into the intuitive beings we so desire.
Therefore when it comes to intuitive skin, it requires more work, a deeper look inside, a deeper expansion, re-connecting to ourselves, asking ourselves the hard questions, and re-programming new ways of being. While supporting the external epidermis at the same time.
So what's the first step in honing your intuition when it comes to Your skin?
It's asking Why, and it takes Connecting the dots (When X happens (breakout, inflammation, etc... + Y is the result) while you connect your body from your head, to your toe (Your skin is a reflection of your gut, liver, kidneys, hormones) so taking a deeper look at all systems - not just skin - as your skin is simply eliminating what your liver / kidneys / gut cannot, and bundling it all up in the beautiful trifecta of healing - Body, Mind, and Soul. It's not easy, but it's worth it. If people are curious as how I can fit into this equation, this is where I come in for my clients, as I have the gift to connect these dots, to sink deeper into ones sense of Self, and to get people to tap into their own innate intuitive power, while supporting the physical body through holistic healing tools. It takes time, love, and deep consistency.
Your intuition is a Superpower, the more it's strengthened, the deeper you heal. The more you look within, the more you will find, because what can't shift, heal, unblock what we don't know.
SO WHERE TO START? HERE IS YOUR FIRST STEP
This doesn't just have to pertain to your skin, but to your whole body.
Start to take inventory of what's going on with your skin. Look at it like a window to your Soul + Self. Tap into your intuition to harness this power. Why does "X" keep showing up when "Y" happens. What triggers it?
When it comes to our body, and our skin nothing is random, and everything is connected. Did you possibly eat something a few days ago that's causing a delayed reaction, so you're not connecting it to a food you love, and a food you always eat (this happens all the time). But because after we eat it, we're fine, so we completely lose sight, track, and constantly turn outwards, instead of inwards. (i.e. harsh skincare / picking/popping VS. reflecting / digging deeper / saying No)
The last thing your body wants to do is be imbalance, it's healing 24/7, and trying to stay in homeostasis, unfortunately we often don't work with our bodies natural healing state, but our in the opposite of that state 24/7 - aka our Sympathetic state. What society / media doesn't tell us, is that the body cannot heal in this state.
Therefore to start healing the skin, and body deeply, we must tap into this intuitive superpower we all have. We must sink deeper, as your skin 100% can heal, we just have to listen to the whispers, and conversations is trying to have with us. While intuitively supporting our body, mind, and soul.
Tap into the trifecta, and so much goodness awaits.
