The Gift of You

You… unadorned… unfiltered… uninhibited… simple…genuine…true… this is what we want.  This genuine and authentic you is the most attractive, sexy, generous thing you could bring to the world.  This is what makes you most attractive to the opposite sex.

Sure, we love it when a partner or date dresses up and does something special… has that extra “hotness”… but that’s not what lasts.  That’s not the plain truth of the matter… It’s you on Saturday morning… hair tousled, makeup-less, in pj’s or not… with a smile and a cup of coffee or tea… hanging out and just being you… that’s what truly touches most men’s and women’s hearts.

We spend so much time thinking about how we “should” be… how I should show up… what our bodies should look like… and that’s not it.

Have you ever wondered why the ones you’re least attracted to are most attracted you?  It’s because you are being YOU with them.  You’re not trying to put on some facade with them and trying to win their heart.  You’re just simply being you!  And, that’s attractive… highly attractive.

This holiday season, with the new year approaching, I invite you to give up the struggle of trying to be someone or something… trying to do life and love right… and just be you!

I bet you’ll be impressed by the results!

(Now… that does mean that you have to love and accept you… just as you are.  And, you are great just as you are.  We all have faults… and that’s ok.  You’re lovable just the way you are!  Accept it!!)


Wishing you abundant seasons blessings!

In love, light and ecstasy,

Joanna Shakti
