A cloud is not just one colour.
A leaf is not one either.
Nature is always flowing, changing, and embracing itself, learning from the last second and moving forward to the next.
Dear Humans, we all need to catch up with the raindrops and waterfalls…
and embrace who you are today.
If you are going grey, show grey.
Be a moon goddess or moon god. Age naturally, lovingly, and gracefully at every age. Get back to nature, appreciate all the colours, and unwind from the world’s specific and too often toxic views on beauty. Let your natural beauty show, lessen the pain, prevent illness, and reduce the endless repetition of taught routines that never really let you feel like you measure up to the current ideal beauty standards. Look back at beauty trends…it is ridiculous and very unhealthy. Every baby is beautiful and grows and changes like a tree or a flower. Isn’t it extraordinary when we see an especially unique plant? Why not have the same attitude and mindset for human beauty?
I grew up in a hair salon, and was taught to ‘be’ and look a certain way. I felt constantly harassed about it, thus creating a ‘hopeless’ self image that I ignored because I couldn’t care that much about something that was not attainable, especially because I did not agree with it. I like nature, trees, and being myself. I never listen to bullies, but harassment of any kind does somehow separate you from yourself in ways. I have had white silvery grey hair since I was young, due to trauma and shock from extreme illnesses. I was taught to hide this hair with hair colour. Hair colour, no matter what kind, is toxic and creates illness…short & long term. There are carcinogens in hair colour formulas. The smell alone is a sign it is unhealthy. It causes instant sensory reactions and migraines. When free of these teachings, (and I do deeply regret not protesting from the start), I let it grow out, and have adjusted to the beautiful colours that are my hair now. After all that has been going on in my life, the unnecessary illness and limitations, I just feel happy to even have hair. There is so much preventable illness in the world, and so much unnecessary suffering, shame, and judgement about appearances. Is the world ready to get to know itself, under the surface?
With healthy organic minimal care, my hair is strong again and beautiful like moonlight. I do support and encourage all people to stop editing and hiding themselves. It is not in your best interest, and will not add real confidence or real happiness. Whole health means building a connected way of living that is helpful and not harmful. Choosing things in your life is important, and real awareness for what is truly positive energy needs to surface for all. At the very least, give children a choice with full information about toxicity and immediate and long-term effects. It has been good to see more people celebrating their grey in recent years. It is time for the world to show its true colours and love them all!
It is amazing when you have a child and realize…hey…I wasn’t so hideous! I am beautiful…like this precious angel I get to take care of each day. I have always respected and cared for myself, but I don’t want to ‘fit in’ with, what is to me, the world’s toxic mess. I never spent time focusing on ‘beauty’ as the world sees it because there is not one ‘perfect’ look. Illness can also open your heart to only focus on important things, like surviving. Make sure you don’t believe toxic criticism because everyone is beautiful, no matter what anyone says. Bullying needs to be completely done. It makes no sense and has so many long-term effects on a person’s life and choices. Don’t try to limit someone’s thoughts and life path because you are insecure. Heal yourself. If someone is bullying you, you need to get help.
If you choose to grow your natural hair colour out, no matter what shades, textures, and combinations it reveals itself to be, be patient with yourself, know you are a part of nature, and love all of you for you are beautiful just the way you are. A healthy trim is a good idea to start your process out with a healthy choice. Eat healthy foods, stretch, breathe, and get rest. Let go of negative thought patterns. It takes time for natural hair to grow out. Come up with a phrase if you feel impatient during the in-between phase. Positive affirmations work if you are sincere. Find nourishing products (organic, non-GMO, vegan, non-plastic), if you need anything at all, like coconut oil and a good sustainable wooden brush for your specific hair type. Be gentle, because hair is delicate. No matter how much hair you have, a healthy scalp is important. Massaging in some organic scalp oil can help stimulate hair health.
I believe in healthy, informed habits and routines. I try beyond my best to take good care of myself and my family. I self-educate, and we are always learning, adapting, and changing. Replacing unhealthy habits and choices with better ones is not scary or miserable. It is something to be embraced and adored. Take pleasure in caring for yourself. Explain to children why you use certain things and do special things so they understand ‘choices’. They need to make their own choices. The world needs to know what people are really like naturally, and stop shaming others into trying to appear as someone else. Be your authentic self.
This text is from one of my upcoming healthy books, and I hope it helps you to adore every strand of hair you have, no matter what colour it is. Adore every freckle, every smile line, and keep smiling! If your hair is curly, let your curls dance in the breeze. Spend your precious time with Nature, and by doing so, you can learn how to love yourself even more each day.
As an empath, it hurts so much to be in this world…to feel everyone fight and fuss. Why? Equality is needed. End judgements of all kinds, for every colour is beautiful. Let the world include everything that is in the world. End racism, end sexism, end pollution, end abuse, and end toxic energy. Stop the violence and prevent illness. Heal. What are you spending your time on? Rethink how you think. Shed toxic traditions and thoughts. Are you building something good, or redoing harmful routines? Enjoy the beauty all around and within us for there is so much of it!
Get to know your true self, and there you will find confidence, a positive body image and mindset. Inspire yourself to take the best care of you.
Shine your light for you are…too marvelous for words!
New beautiful books will release as soon as I can do so.
I include loving energy in every book, painting, and day.
Love, an old soul, Amor Milagre
