Time To Embrace My Wrinkles

Leave a comment


Hey, Happy Earth Day! As I stand here in front of the Mountain Lilac, I am learning to embrace my wrinkles!  I’m sure this will not be a popular trend but I’ve never gone along with the trends easily.

I feel like we are all so obsessed with beauty and perfection. Every time we look in the mirror and judge ourselves for having real wrinkles, it feels like little bits of self-hatred and it feels so wrong.

We’re all scrambling around trying to get rid of the ugliness, the imperfections. Serums and creams and fillers and facelifts. Oh how we have gone astray.

I think we are mostly filling ourselves with self-hatred, trying everything to get rid of the imperfections, or what we’ve been hypnotized to think are imperfections! It’s really rather absurd when you stand back and look at it.

Yes, fillers make the skin look smooth and pretty and it is tempting, I just can’t bring myself to do it. Mostly because of vanity, again. I’m afraid it wouldn’t look natural and I wouldn’t want people judging me based on my fake face.

Vanity vanity vanity, any way you look at it. We’re all so physically focused. I want a new focus!

I’m tired of all the little pieces of hate I throw at myself. I’m sure I’m not alone here?

Basically the wrinkles are little traces of time written on my face and I have lived 58 years so far and that is a lot to be grateful for!

No, it won’t be easy to get unhypnotized because it’s a lifetime of societal pressures and hypnotisms.

But hey.

How about we get out and be part of nature more often. The more we see beauty out there, the more we’ll see beauty in here. Mind training with Nature!

So here, on this Earth Day, I choose to embrace my wrinkles. For each wrinkle I focus on, I will recycle a nugget, a memory that makes that wrinkle worthy! Wrinkles are signs of worthiness! Yes! Go ahead, zoom in and check them out!

I’m feeling relaxed and safe. Most of the time I react from old programming. I have anger issues but Tara helps me feel secure , confident, and loved unconditionally.

The only other living, breathing, beings out there on my mountain bike ride were two HORSES (with riders) and two jumbo COYOTES with a gorgeous full coat of red rusty fur!

The coyotes were about 5 feet in front of me on the trail. We had a face-off as I approached and communicated with my body language then with words. They slowly trotted ahead on the trail, then into the bushes.

When I encounter them.

I have no fear, only exhilaration!

Coyote’s Animal Spirit message is: when a coyote Spirit animal crosses your way, you may be encouraged to not take things too seriously. Perhaps you need to lighten up or change your perspective about an issue or matter that has been on your mind for a while. There’s often wisdom in making fun of serious matters and letting go of certainties.

Call on the coyote to invigorate an appreciation of life‘s wisdom through diversity and richness.

I love this message!

I know that most people don’t like seeing a coyote because it reminds them of all their beloved animals that have been eaten by coyotes.

I understand, but I think we all need more compassion for coyotes. They are just living out their wild animal nature. They’re trying to survive out there. Clearly, the 2 coyotes I saw today were well fed. There are lots of rabbits in that canyon so I think that’s why they look so healthy and big.

Anyway, don’t forget to take the time to notice your animal spirit guides. They always have a message for us.

Check out the website Spirit Animal and I recommend reading “Animal Speak”by Ted Andrews.

Fascinating!

One more thing, when you encounter a wild animal or a wild person, try not to exhibit fear.

Move forward in your nature and let them know that you respect them in their space and you’re just going to go on your way and they can go on their way as well.

They would rather you be in a fearful, weak state. That’s what they are looking for—the weak, the injured, the fearful.

Life wants us to trust. I trust the animals.
