The HER Effect

Hello, True Beauty,

I want to share something with you that is etched so deeply in my heart, that I can’t help but pour myself over these words.

It’s this reality that beauty goes so far beyond the skin.

The truth is, there is no True Beauty, no real transformation without first evaluating our internal being or our “inner man”.

My heart has been on fire as I see you being brought into a place of fullness, where beauty radiates from the deepest part of you.

There is something being cracked wide open and ready to come alive in and through you.

And because of this, there is a battle taking place.

A battle that wants to steal and rob the light that you carry.

Much of the battle will be a raid of your mind.

It’s this war against our thoughts that can hold us back from our calling if we don’t discover how to fight well.

I see it everywhere… these thoughts are deceptive weapons that aim to define us by circumstances that indeed feel very real.

These thoughts tell us if we feel lonely, then we are alone.

If we’ve failed, then we are a failure.

If we feel sad, then we are depressed.
This very effective strategy has cost many men and women their destiny.

But, there is HOPE.

I want the voice inside your head to be one that is TRUE about who you really are.

You may feel lonely, but you are NEVER alone, you are deeply loved.

You may have failed, but that is what brings us into a place of carrying our success well.

To never fail means that you’ve never tried.

So, today I want to remind you to keep going, keep failing and standing back up because you are Becoming HER.

The other day I was thinking about how my dad raised me to be a strong, confident woman.

As a young girl, I was confident who I was. I was so sure that I could figure anything out and get the job done, no matter how big or small.

It wasn’t until I was an adult, and I came under abusive leadership, that the war within me really began.

Leaders criticized who I was and made me question every thought and decision.
I no longer felt strong, instead, I was made to believe that I was weak. That their approval was what defined all that was right and wrong in the world.

This really caused me to go deep and discover the truth about who I am. I forced myself to separate the lies from the truth, and I not only renewed my mind to that truth, but I proved it by taking action and leaps of faith towards a vision and a purpose I knew I was being called to.

I know that you’ve had voices from people over the years, they may be gone now, externally, but the battle to uproot those patterns of thinking is still very real.

Those strongholds need to be torn down because a life any less than the life you were born to live is not the life intended for you, you were intended to SHINE from the inside out.

I want to assure you that you are not alone, and NO, you are not crazy.

The only thing you need to be is honest and true to who you were born to become… this is when True Beauty shines.

You are worthy and beautiful just as you are, the moments that you feel darkness are just moments that require light.

Darkness will always be overcome by light and that transformation only comes from TRUTH.

You are incredibly powerful, all of the substance, and beauty, and perfection is already in you.

I’m here with you, and we’re all in this together,

– Jaime
