Aging is optional.

Have you noticed that our stereotypes about "old" have been challenged in the last twenty years? People who are 50 look and act like 35 year olds. 70 year olds are running marathons. And there is always Betty White...

"Age is just a number, and agelessness means not buying into the idea that a number determines everything from your state of health to your attractiveness to your value." - Christiane Northrup

In the west, we live in a society that messages the importance of women remaining young and sexually desirable to all men of all ages all the time. This sexist patriarchal attitude is a dangerous illusion for men and women if you are drawn to go beyond ego. The first level illusion we dissolve on the spiritual path is the belief that we are this body. If you identify with the body, you may also accept the false messages that go with that - health is everything,  young is beautiful, thin is healthy, self-improvement is a sign of growth and wisdom....and so on.

"Ageless living is courageous living. It means being undistracted by the petty dramas of life because you have enough experience to know what’s not worth worrying about and what ought to be your priorities." -Christiane Northrup

So why is Botox a threat to ageless living? Think of it like this: what does it feel like to use the senior's discount at stores? Does it reinforce your vitality?  Your prosperity? Or does it mask you with an image of decreasing financial resources, powerlessness, and fragility?

When you chose Botox, or other injectables,you are saying there is something wrong with the natural process of aging. It is a rejection of self.

"Your beliefs and thoughts are wired into your biology. They become your cells, tissues, and organs. There’s no supplement, no diet, no medicine, and no exercise regimen that can compare with the power of your thoughts and beliefs. That’s the very first place you need to look when anything goes wrong with your body." -Christiane Northrup

There is a practice called Face Reading that suggests that your emotional patterns show up in the structure of your face and in your body. If your face is not reflecting your vitality, go into nature. Sit under the sky. Connect with your divine self.

When you get Botox, you build an internal message about you, your vitality and your value that places all the power outside of yourself. It is about fighting aging instead of living agelessly and from your vitality.

"You can glow with vitality if you see yourself as an expression of the Divine and a being through which the Divine Beloved operates." -Christiane Northrup

So skip the Botox and connect with your vitality. It takes longer, but it lasts a lifetime.
