You may or may not know this – but I was a Botox user. That is until a friend and former student of mine, Tom Milton, shared with me something he learned while studying the art of Chinese Face Reading.
The basis of face reading include the cosmic energies of the five elements and yin and yang. The elements are symbols and represent qualities of energy within each person that are reflected in the face. An extremely elaborate physical, psychological and emotional profile can be built up, incorporating the energies of the features, also known as “the life points of the face”. The three divisions from top to bottom (forehead, mid face and lower face) show the nervous, circulatory and digestive systems and the facial zones which represent the internal organs…Like I said – this is an art!!
Each face is also a map of the past, present and future. The past includes our mother’s pregnancy, our childhood, with either difficulties or support in the family, and our early years as we start out in the world. The present reflects our health at the time of the reading. This is something we create ourselves. Diet, negative emotion loops, stress, drugs, alcohol and other toxins all contribute to lines, and colors on the face. (Read more about Chinese face reading).
What I love about Chinese philosophy is that the future is not predestined. Acts of compassion can lengthen one’s life, and taking greater care with health can resolve possible future symptoms. In other words, we create our futures, something that people in my Super Size Your Soul Program are appreciating now.
Here’s the thing : Sometimes destiny and the ups and downs of life can be improved by facial surgery. Correcting squints helps one’s fortunes during the years 35-40. However, nose jobs, which expose the nostrils and shorten the nose can affect the end of the 40s. And Botox – which can smooth lines in the forehead, actually “blocks” the lessons learned from past mistakes.
I don’t know about you, but I have no desire to repeat past mistakes (again). So – no more botox for me!
The funny thing? No one has noticed…
