Beauty Consciousness

Practicing Self-Love Through Beauty


What is Beauty Consciousness?

It is a different way of looking at beauty. There are different levels of beauty consciousness based on personal experiences and beliefs. When living with a lower level of this consciousness one may experience vanity, self-obsession, self-loathing or superficiality (to name a few). The highest level of beauty consciousness is the embodiment of self-acceptance, authenticity and love of self and all others: true beauty.

Lower Levels of Beauty Consciousness

My first understanding of what beauty was developed when I liked a boy in the 3rd grade who teased me for some of my physical features. That experience imprinted in me a belief that there was something wrong with me, that I had undesirable features that made me unlikable. I was programmed to believe that there was a direct correlation between my appearance and my likability and worth. This experience then evolved into how I saw and treated others based on their physicality.

Comparing and judging has dissipated into a desire to see myself and others in a new light, with admiration and inspiration.
