Hi, Beauty.

Every week, I send out my musings via email. These are my personal letters to you—a journal of sorts, some of my personal stories, photographs, a peek into my healthy living habits, recipes, etc. I share topics and inspiration on health and wellness and spiritual and life lessons that you can make your own, along with what’s new and happening at Intuitively Well. My hope is that these inspire you to live a vibrant, healthy life rooted in your own beauty and wisdom. I invite you to explore a sampling of my musings below.

Hi Dear,

Every woman is beautiful. This I truly believe.

But the reality is not every woman feels beautiful.

Far too many women don’t like what they see in the mirror, aren’t comfortable in their skin, compare themselves to some ridiculous media standard, or think fixing their bodies is the key to finally feeling beautiful.

And this is something that needs to change.

Because as I’ve already said, every woman IS beautiful and every woman deserves to feel it!

So where do you begin when you aren’t feeling like your most gorgeous, sparkly self?

First, it’s important to know that feeling and looking beautiful aren’t superficial concepts based solely on looks.

Yes, the physical is a part of it, but it has nothing to do with fashion-magazine-type looks or Hollywood standards.

Some of the most captivating women I’ve seen aren’t necessarily conventionally beautiful, but they clearly looked their very best and radiated a glow. You could tell they felt great in their skin and held an incredible energy about them.

But I believe, these women knew something that a lot of women don’t understand yet.

Beauty is very much a spiritual concept as much as it’s a physical one. Because, ultimately, it’s all intertwined. You’re a spiritual being having a human experience.

Which means that when it comes to how you look and how you feel in your body, you need to pay attention to more than just the physical.

Now here’s the most important point to understand about this.

You don’t need to chase it.

The beauty you want is already there. It already exists within you. You just need to unravel and uncover it.

That means working through emotions, mindsets, beliefs that are keeping your beauty from shining through.

So how do you uncover it? Well, there are many ways to go about it and usually its a very individual process but I have two things to offer here today.

One is journaling.

Journaling is a fantastic way to uncover, unravel, and process emotions that are weighing on you and your body. Putting pen to paper helps to clarify thoughts and make sense of our inner world. There’s a lot more I have to say about the benefits of journaling but for today, I’ll leave it here.

The second is having a supportive space to reflect, share, process and release what’s on your mind.

Because acknowledgement, support, and witnessing are powerful in helping us release what’s weighing us down and covering up our inner glow.

Now I know this one is harder to come by. In today’s go-go-go culture and technology-driven landscape, it can be hard to find this space. But it’s not impossible. You’ll just need to be more intentional about it.

There’s so much more to this topic. Today’s email is just the tip of the iceberg. But I hope it inspires you to begin unraveling and uncovering the beauty within.

Warmly,

Aarti

P.S. In the spirit of supportive spaces, I’ve created a Women’s Healing and Wellness Circle, a gathering for women to share, reflect, connect, and learn. We’ll be meeting in-person in NYC once a month as well as I’ll be hosting a separate virtual Circle.
