Manifesting Intentional Beauty
Manifesting intentional beauty sounds great, but what does it really mean? My Facial Club has developed a proprietary process for administering an at-home facial using professional grade beauty tools and products coupled with a guided intentional beauty practice. The intentional beauty practice engages all 5 traditional senses, as well as the 6th sense, defined in Buddhism, as the “mind,” heightening focus and concentration, while boosting mood and wellbeing.
How are the senses engaged during a facial?
Sight – looking into the mirror as you administer your Intentional Facial, you can connect with yourself on a deeper and more personal level.
Sound – listening to your guide intently as well as the music playing in the background. The music selections are designed to calm and relax the mind while engaging the bodies healing properties.
Touch – the feeling of the tool on your skin and the touch of your fingers as you apply and deliver topical serums.
Smell – the aroma of the serums, and if you are using a candle or essential oils you can even heighten the level of engagement deeper.
Taste – (optional/recommended) we encourage you to have some dark chocolate as you are about to begin the facial. Dark chocolate is high in cacao, which is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, it also improves neuroplasticity in the brain, considered a heart opener, and “studies show us that the higher the concentration of cacao (70% or higher) , the more positive the impact on cognition, memory, mood, immunity and other beneficial effects.”(Forbes).
Mind – the mind experiences thoughts, feelings, and emotions. It processes, categorizes and judges sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touches. Without the ‘Mind’ we would be unable to process and act upon the other senses.
When all 5 senses have been engaged in a task, the mind slows and the Default Mode Network (DMN) calms down and even goes offline. The DMN focuses on self-referential thinking(ego activation), storytelling, time traveling (ruminating over the past, worrying about the future) and other activities that lead to dissatisfaction, neurosis, frustration, boredom, etc.
By engaging all your senses you drop into the here and now and focus all your energies on self-love and self-care. Your mind’s energy’s shifts away from focusing on trivial matters, like circular thought or the mind trying to grasp the mind, much like a dog chasing its own tail. By surrendering to the present moment, you connect with the world in its ‘suchness’ and once you calm the DMN you are able to 10x the healing and nourishing capacity of your body. Focusing all your senses and mental faculties into caring for and loving yourself, you shift from living in a world of ‘cause and effect’, to ‘causing an effect’ and become a catalyst to your Timeless Beauty.
MFC has scheduled the guided facial practice at the same time every week on a Sunday(7pm EST). Tune in with tens of thousands of people from all over the globe also engaging in the same practice, thereby heightening your experience, and connecting you to others sharing your vibration. Through this web of connectedness, mindfulness, and consciousness we can create a halo effect raising the vibrations of those around us. Imagine this web across the US of heightened energy and vibration as a giant net that casts a positive affect across indirect parties; your neighbors, friends, colleagues, etc. will benefit from our practice as we get grounded and centered while also recognizing, acknowledging, and nourishing the beauty we already have.
