One of the most popular cosmetic procedures today is a forehead lift, which will artificially erase the lines that form here.
I know. We all whine and moan about the lines we see on our faces. We think they make us look old.
Just like you, I once looked at lines and markings on the face as one of those freaking unattractive consequences of aging. 😒
Until I studied acupuncture and the origins of Traditional Chinese Medicine and learned about this ancient art of face reading.
Now, when I see lines and markings, I see beauty.
I see human emotion so honored that it graces our face with a totally unique and personal design of lines and wrinkles and markings.
I see emotional experiences so significant, they mark our face as a memory of the event, which I find fascinating and sacred … you really can read the story of your life in your face.

According to the ancient art of face reading, one of the things that the forehead represents is the decade of our late teens and twenties.
According to ancient tradition, if we experienced an event in our late teens or twenties that was so significant that we learned a life-long lesson, we may have created a horizontal wrinkle across the length of our forehead. This line will be horizontal and unbroken.
If we didn’t quite learn the lesson, the line will be horizontal and broken.
Interesting, huh? Some of us only have deep unbroken lines. Some have a mix of broken and unbroken lines, indicating that maybe we needed to repeat a few lessons before we learned what we needed to learn.
So, if the lines on our forehead represent significant lessons learned in our twenties, what happens when we lift and fill those lines, Botox them or otherwise get rid of them?
Well, those wise traditional face readers tell us that we may find ourselves repeating mistakes or re-living aspects of our past all over again!
Oh, hell NO.
Erasing those forehead lines could give us intuitive amnesia ... we could forget or ignore the wisdom we may have learned or discovered about ourselves as a result of the significant experience that created the damn line in the first place!
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to re-live my twenties. And I certainly don’t want to have to learn those early lessons all over again as an adult in my 50's, especially in this crazy time when everything is already so extra. 😜
Isn’t it a lot sexier to just allow the wrinkles and lines in our forehead to be there? And instead of criticizing them or trying to get rid of them, being grateful for the wisdom we have earned and lessons we learned that shaped us into the fullness of who we are.
While you are learning to love those lines, wearing bangs is preferable to Botox and fillers.

If you can, beauty -- try to allow your natural lines to be a reminder that you experienced some heavy 💩 in your early years -- own it and be grateful for it. It has made you the bad ass babe you are today -- and why would you want to erase that? 🙋🏻♀️
Each aspect of our face, from the curve of our lips, to the shape of our eyebrows
and the contour of our chin - even each line and marking - tells our personal story of how we tend to think, feel and behave...and holds the key to our hidden powers.
