Turning on your inner light (or enlightenment) is just one term for the effect Slow Beauty will have on you. You might also view it through the lens of growing younger, raising your consciousness, vibrating at a higher energy level, or existing in a state of bliss. All of these feelings are a result of a phenomenon psychologist Abraham Maslow termed self-actualization. You’ve probably heard of self-actualization before. It’s one of those buzzwordy phrases that can be a bit difficult to nail down.


Well, guess what? Maslow also identified some of the signs that self-actualization has happened or is in the process of happening. As you move through the Slow Beauty program, we’ll check in to note if you are experiencing any of these symptoms of self-actualization or awakening both of which are key steps along the path to enlightenment. Let’s start with where you’re at today to get a baseline. Under each of these markers of self-actualization, determine where you are on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most proficient. But, first, take a deep breath. This is not a test and there are no right or wrong answers. As you move through Slow Beauty you will be amazed to flip back to this and see what has changed and shifted. And, indeed, things will change and shift!

Efficient perception of reality: Are you right here, right now? Or are you living in the past or dreaming of the future?

Acceptance of self, others, and nature: Do you truly understand that there is no such thing as failure? As long as we learn from our mistakes, there are only lessons learned.
