Become Aware of Your Inner Beauty

We don't have to look like fashion models to be beautiful. Society today places way too much emphasis on physical beauty. What makes a person truly beautiful is when they glow with an inner light, when their spirit shines through the physical. This spell will help you to release your own true beauty.

You will need: one pink taper candle, two white taper candles, jasmine or lavender oil, myrrh or rose incense, and your favorite scented body lotion.

Cast a circle around the whole bathroom, if possible. (You may need to tell other family members that you do not want to be disturbed for awhile.) Draw a warm bath, pouring a few drops of oil into the water. Anoint the candles with the oil, from the base, up to the top. Light the candles and incense. Disrobe, and look at yourself in the mirror. DO NOT be critical of yourself. DO NOT point out your "flaws"! Instead just look. Notice things about yourself without judging. Notice that you have two arms, two legs, a torso, breasts, a neck, etc. Look at your face, into your eyes, look at your hair. Again, do not pass judgement upon yourself for anything about your body. Just Look. Observe.

Step into the tub, sinking into the soft, warm water. Splash the water gently over yourself, inhaling the sweet scent. Lie back and close your eyes, and visualize the person you just saw in the mirror. See her standing before you, naked and defenseless. Start focusing on surrounding her with pink, loving light. See this loving light as it grows, gently surrounding her, filling the empty places in her, filling her with love. See this light hugging her, comforting her, warming her. Know that this person before you IS you, and you are being filled with divine love and acceptance. Know that you are important, you are special, you are truly beautiful. And you are completely surrounded with love. Feel this love, this pink light, as it soaks into you, calming you, relaxing you. Know that you are loved, just as you are. Know that you are beautiful, just as you are.

Stay in the tub for as long as you wish, breathing deeply, filling yourself with the pink light of love. Then step out of the tub, pat yourself dry with a soft, fluffy towel, and lather yourself with your favorite scented body lotion. Put on your comfiest outfit, and relax! Do something that you really enjoy, something relaxing. Read a good book, take a nap, take a slow, leisurely walk.

Doing this on a regular basis will help you to accept yourself, to appreciate yourself, and will let your inner beauty out.
