Become Attractive: It's About More Than Physical Beauty

We can be physically beautiful but there is such a thing as becoming attractive, a quality that radiates outward from within ourselves, a quality that causes people to simply want to be around us. It’s real. It’s authentic. It’s that undefinable je ne sais quoi we can’t quite put our finger on. It’s more than physical beauty—it’s spiritual beauty that envelops the physical. This beauty is called Truth.

There is no one that cannot be a being who personifies such goodness, beauty and truth. It occurs as a result of balance of body, mind and spirit combined with an authentic and deep love of self. It isn’t about makeup and working out at the gym unless we do these things for reasons beyond the superficial.

In the following list of actions you may find several not so obvious paths to becoming so attractive others clamor to be in your presence. May your inner beauty radiate!

  • Drink a healthy amount of pure water. Your skin will take on a lustrous glow but also since water conducts electricity, you will be a finer conduit to receive divine knowledges and wisdoms from the non-physical realm (including your inner being).

  • Consciously breathe in the prana from the air you breathe. Practice deep breathing exercises. Learn the yogic practice of pranayama. Focus on the simple “six breaths a minute” technique for conscious breathing that brings excellent physical vitality as well.

  • Sweat it out. Stop always running for the air conditioning. Let your body’s toxins release through the sweat while continuing to rehydrate yourself. Take walks or do exercise in a warm ambiance. Sit in the warm summer sun for a while until you break a sweat.

  • Eat green life-giving light-filled food. Like drinking water, eating green fresh produce and algaes like spirulina and chlorella will make you glow, not to mention feel alive and full of vitality. Because green foods are imbued with the sun’s energy and light, eating green food is ingesting light into your body.

  • Go vegan. We truly are not meant to eat our fellow sentient beings. This creates a conflict when we do so and conflict shows up in our physical appearance. In addition, animals who are killed for food experience fear and pain surrounding the moment of death the vibration of which goes directly into the animal flesh. Being vegan means we eat the tender leaves and crisp plant flesh that is rich with light and life which can do nothing other than charge us with the same.

  • Find your favorite yoga practice. This could be hatha or hot yoga, walking meditation, dance, martial arts, or really, whatever you are attracted to. Anything we pursue as a practice is a form of yoga. In addition to the awesome physical benefits, regular practice of an exercise you love to do will bring a contentment to your being that will make you shine.

  • Smile a lot. Who isn't attractive who smiles all the time?

  • Stop controlling. Let things go to take their natural course. When we have to control everything, we become unattractive, ominous, anxious, aggressive and repulsive. Our face sags and eyebrows knit and people just plain don’t want to be around us.

  • Be in service. Mother Teresa, the epitome of selfless service, was one of the most beautiful beings who ever walked the planet.

  • Surround yourself with uplifting people and circumstances. We become what we focus on and what we surround ourselves with habitually. Choose only the highest frequency influences in your life whether they’re people or things.

  • Immerse yourself in the arts. The arts are expressions of the soul. Create art or enjoy it. Whether it’s gallery art, music, creative writing, poetry, theater, crafts, or woodworking, wear the arts you love the most like a blanket. It will cause you to feel exhilarated, free and joyful which translates into a person who is quite lovely to behold.

  • Love all. Let go of assumptions. In most cases, our judgments are wrong anyway. Remember that. Just love. Be love. Share love. Embody love. Know love. And you will be beautiful indeed.
