I use the word ‘beauty’ a lot and recently stopped to ponder what it means to me.
It isn’t so much about the appearance of things but a feeling. It’s an harmonious feeling. A soft, gentle feeling.
Beauty is something deep, like roots probing into the Earth. There’s nothing surface level about the beauty that I am feeling.
It’s a Goddess vibe, the divine feminine is expressed through its energy.
Beauty is strong like the trunk of a magnificent tree. It wraps you up, all soft pink and white, like chiffon and silk.
I feel beauty’s energy in my lower abdomen at the place known as the elixir field, the sea of my chi, the lower dantien (two finger widths below the navel). When my left hand rests over my right hand (right over left if you’re male) at my dantien, then beauty is invoked like a sacred fragrance through my being.
Beauty becomes a symphony of love when other qualities harmonise with it. Peace and serenity are engaged. The energy consists of strands that are braided together, as peace, love and serenity make a ‘beauty braid’.
When peace, love and serenity are present, that’s when beauty comes into being. A quality that can be felt and embodied whenever it’s invoked.
