Don't know about you, but I'm amongst the population of females who is striving for silky soft skin. According to Louise Hay's 'Heal Your Body' - a dictionary of ailments and their origins, skin problems are related to one's sense of individuality and how one is prone to the opinions of others. In a previous post, I have mentioned my struggle with hives a few years back. In fact, that was how I stepped onto the path of shrugging off external opinions, with the help of Louise Hay's positive affirmation work. The original problem was too ingrained in my psyche that my skin condition remained for months. Despite not receiving immediate effect, the journey enabled me to understand myself more, and through other spiritual means, e.g. EFT, reiki, astrology, feng shui, I began to cleanse my internal state, since this has a knock-on effect on the external world.
Does this mean good skin may be related to a strong sense of individuality and a high confidence level?
Just for fun, I made a list of all the people I know with skin to die for. So far, it appears that people with velvet skin are those with a strong personality and are likely to be immune to negative opinions from others. This makes sense since Louise Hay's affirmation for skin conditions is 'I feel safe to be me'. For these individuals, they feel comfortable and safe to be in their own skin, thus any external attack would not have an averse effect on them.
Even though there are many other factors which may influence one's skin condition, I would be interested to see if anyone else could repeat this little investigation and see what you find.
