I don’t often treat myself to this kind of luxurious experience but oh, am I GRATEFUL that I did!
These are ‘before and after’ pics of my salon experience today. In an awesome synchronicity, Jelelle Awen brought this all-natural salon back to my attention the other day. She also said she found out there was a hair dresser there that specializes in cutting curly hair. I think I ended up booking an appointment that night, even though I wasn’t totally sure the money would work out comfortably.
My experience though was more than just a hair cut. The young woman who did my hair had a sweet porosity herself and that was wonderful to connect with. Also, I could feel this appointment as an important piece of my personal transition into the new… A new sense of self love and care that goes well beyond ‘not sure if I have the money for it’ sort of anxiety that parts of me can have sometimes.
I’ve INvested so much of myself into my personal INNER process, that it was time to let in a desire for refreshed and healthier hair as a way to take care of and treasure my own unique feminine beauty. I must confess, I also have a desire for a facial. A potentially expensive one. And also a mani-pedi. And also, I’m going to be changing my hair colour!
I’m just letting my desires in again after a bit of a hiatus of being able to feel them. This is one expression of what I want for myself and my parts and my life. Of course there are also many more expressions and this is simply an outward one.
I honestly haven’t focused on the ‘outside’ of me in so long aside from the occasional body image pieces that pop up. However, even that is moving with a renewed relationship to food and fasting and already feeling better, a bit lighter, as if there is simply more air and light too coming in. Also, a new relationship to the way I clothe my body is emerging and that is exciting and interesting to feel happening.
It feels like every aspect of self care, especially if it can be held with genuine love and not an activated Inner Punisher, is a part of the Light Body activation experience. Each step we take, each dollar we ‘spend’, is all a part of the bigger picture of where our bodies are ascending to IF we can align the intention with a purifying sense of self love and empowerment that no longer has undertones of harshness, control, or anxiety towards self or life.
It is a journey to get there. And I am still on the journey in some ways. But, every wave of it is worth diving deeply into… to come out the other side transformed in ways you hadn’t expected. ❤️
