Beauty Work. Today’s digital “Beauty Work” is scary, if you value our shared humanity.
Why, supposedly, does ATTRACTIVENESS mean erasing human “imperfections”?
Beauty Work. This Term Comes from 2020.
So Today’s Post Contains an Update.
Picture this article like an archaeological site, Blog-Buddies.
We’ll start with Egyptian times. Next, work our way up to the 18th century “Age of Enlightenment.” Mostly starting with Comment
Joke-ish. Because we will officially define today’s weird, new “Beauty Work”… All the way at Comment #7.
Hey, Long as You’re Picturing Things, Imagine This
Late at night, Rose Rosetree, Founder of Energy Spirituality. She’s authorizing comments at this blog. Soon she’ll turn off her computer. Quite sleepy, that Rose.
But ELIZA’S comments were undeniably important. Cleverly, she’d added “Beauty Work” comments at the end of what? Close in context as could be… A post on “Celebrities Doing Extreme Cosmetic Surgery.” Namely, the step before this crazy new development.
First, ELIZA commented on this weird new way of distorting celeb images. Followed by more brilliant comments by JANICE.
Quite simply, the importance of these comments was striking. Since this blog is about truth. Moreover, in my role as an Enlightenment Coach, partly my job is to unmask illusions.
Accordingly, I did something unprecedented regarding this blog post.
Significantly Revising the Original Blog Post. (Only Not Being Sneaky about It.)
Last night, I re-dated this article. Originally published on May 28, 2010. Nearly a decade ago, right?
Why, exactly, time-travel the post to January 7, 2020? In order to make it easy for you to find it now. Add your comments. Maybe even tweet about it. (I definitely plan to. And you’re always invited to retweet what comes out of my Twitter account.)
Obviously, I figured: Now would be a great chance to update the original article. Such as adding links.
Unlike Beauty Work, I’m doing this honestly. Such as? Telling you upfront what I’m doing.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if all the Beauty Work-altered movies showed a disclaimer?
Like, “The Irishman” isn’t just more show biz from De Niro. For the entire movie, evidently… His image is subtly and consistently fake.
Warning: Never try to read the actor’s aura from this movie. It will really, truly confuse you.
In Short, Blog-Buddies, Consider Yourself Introduced to this Updated Article
Actually, the old post makes a perfect lead-in to what’s happening now. Simply keep reading, Blog-Buddies. Eventually, you’ll get to the Beauty Work Theme.
All that said, yes! Back in the day, I wrote about…
Crazy-Extreme Cosmetic Surgery
A horror movie, mixed with science fiction, is running. Strangely, we’re trapped inside it. Yesterday the tiniest incident alerted me.
Shopping at Macy’s Department Store, I saw Our Pal Gwyneth. Her photo was conspicuous. Expertly placed to sell makeup. Or was it selling promises of eternal youth? Either way, Gwyneth was perfect for the job.
Who doesn’t love Gwyneth Paltrow? Remember how dewy she looked in “Shakespeare in Love”?
At the makeup counter, the Oscar-winner looked the same as ever. Except maybe a bit younger. Here’s a sample of amazing new Gwyneth’s natural-looking facial perfection.
Only, wait a minute. “Shakespeare in Love” was released in 1998. By contrast, now it’s 2010. Why would this ad seem enticing? Believable? Or, even, sane?
- On one hand, big glamour photos to show us a glam face.
- On the other hand, this face is impossible. More like a tribute to surgical erasure.
- Yet somehow, this is supposed to entice women who buy makeup?
- Honestly, is a cream in a jar really worth thousands of dollars? Spent on the best vanity surgery money can buy!!!
First Problem? Face Reading Confusion
Of course, I’m a professional face reader. Always using the system of Face Reading Secrets®.
Essential to my system of physiognomy? Faces change over time to reflect personal growth.
Due to the reciprocal relationship between face and soul expression? Ouch! Blanking out one’s face again and again? Not so great for a person’s spiritual evolution.
Second Problem? Aura Reading Confusion
Equally confusing is the impact of Photoshopped photos.
Only don’t mess with reading auras on fake photographs. Such as the “Beauty Work” science fiction-like images starting in 2020. Ick!
Who Signed up for this Strange Reality Show? The “Secretly Fake-Fake-Fake Show.”
Funny, I don’t remember giving consent. Did you?
Earlier, the same day as my close encounter of the fake kind with Gwyneth, ouch! I read a short article in The Washington Post about Paula Abdul. Complete with her ageless photo, of course.
The story carried a brief announcement of her new show. Another reality show that I never will watch! Naturally, I skipped right by the story, yet the photo still registered in my mind, lingering like a Cheshire Cat smile in “Alice in Wonderland.”
- Here is Paula Abdul, the new and improved version. In 2010.
- By contrast, Blog-Buddies, here’s Paula Abdul in 1988. Maybe you remember her album “Forever Your Girl.”
- Incidentally, I apologize about all the skin Paula’s showing in both pix. Seriously hard, finding a modest picture of Ms. Abdul!
Apparently, “Forever Your Girl” isn’t allowed to have a human face. Naturally changing over time, to reflect her soul’s evolution.
Instead, like Gwyneth Paltrow, she looks “perfect.” (Unless you count the strong whiff of plastic.)
Here’s a person who has erased her facial evolution.
If Curious, You Can Find Other Articles Here at that Theme
How about previous blog posts? Those about Heidi Montag and Brittany Murphy and Sylvester Stallone. Giving you examples, through aura research. How soul-deadening it can be, undergoing extreme vanity surgery.
Some actors who’ve done plastic surgery? They’re like Helen Mirren. Not scary-youthful. And aurically doing fine. (Mirren is even on my Spiritual Enlightenment Life List.) However, these celebs are minimalists. Mirren isn’t trying to look like her own granddaughter.
High-class cosmetic surgery. By definition (my definition) it doesn’t erase every trace of humanity. Certainly NOT causing a face to become its own parody.
Have You Had Cosmetic Surgery, Blog-Buddies?
Great time to comment about that, at this post! Maybe you just a bit of facial tweaking. Afterward, how did you feel about it? Did you really feel new and improved? Or “refreshed?” Or “cleaned up” thanks to a scalpel?
Or was your experience more like this:
Memorably, Gladys approached me while I was on tour. Talking up my latest book on face reading.
In hushed tones, she said, “Used to be, when I’d look in a mirror, I’d recognize myself. Now all I can recognize is my eyes. Otherwise I don’t know this person. How I wish I’d never done it!”
As a Result of the Surgeries in Pop Culture, What Happens to Our Standards?
Yours, for instance. By now you’ve seen so many fake faces. Not just slightly tweaked. More like deception in motion.
- As a result, what are your standards? Have plasticized people started to seem “normal” to you? Or superior!
- And have you begun to compare yourself to these people? Like your job is to look as “youthful” as them?
How Can You Minimize the Impact of All the Cosmetic Surgery Lies?
Here’s what I do, Blog-Buddies. Since it works for me, maybe it can help you too.
- Notice when you see a face or body that appears surgically altered.
- Actively make a point of noticing. Rather than the push we get in collective consciousness. To the effect of, “So good looking! So fresh!”
- When you notice, inwardly, say it isn’t so:
This isn’t a real, human face and/or body. This is an interesting science experiment in human guise.
I do not need to accept this aberration as “normal” or even “real.”
About 10 years ago, I wrote about plastic people. It was as part of the social satire in my novel, “The Roar of the Huntids.” Consider it partly a story of spiritual awakening. Partly a novel about Empath Empowerment®. And partly science fiction.
Just like my world! (Maybe yours, too?) 😉
A key point: I set that novel in 2020. Ten years from now, how will people look? I plan to show up wearing my natural, evolving face and body. How about you?
Historians, we’re told, will look back on this time as The Age of Terror. Maybe.
Personally, I wouldn’t be shocked if future historians found today’s facial lying significant. At least equally noteworthy!
For instance, how many people in 2010 spent a fortune on vanity? Eagerly stripping away their most human physical characteristics. In order to look like 20-year-olds.
Take a look around you. Is this, or isn’t this, The Age of Plastic?
Finally, Remember That Our “Beauty Work” Comments Begin at #7
I’m looking forward to your COMMENTS, Blog-Buddies.
