Teachings, thousands of years old, are now being proved as being correct - scientifically. By now probably almost everyone has heard about how our thoughts influence our reality - even those who don't have the slightest idea about how to use this information to their own advantage.
Japanese researcher Masaru Emoto has photos of how water molecules crystallize into beautiful, symmetrical patterns under the influence of "love" word - or thought - even as far away as on the other side of the world. These photos are one of the most obvious and pleasant-to-the-eye proofs I've ever seen.
We are all interconnected and that's why keeping our emotions, thoughts and words positive, beneficial, constructive and specific (for the good of everybody concerned) is the best thing we can do for ourselves and others.
The same applies to our everyday beauty routine. This body is our vehicle in this life and treating it with love and respect is the only right thing to do. And it's not just the influence of our focused attention we pay to our bodies when taking care of it. Loving ourselves brings out magic - and miracles... :)
