Prayer for Beauty (as inspired by Venus)

The following paragraphs are taken from The Goddess DIET, See a Goddess in the Mirror in 21 Days by Anita Revel. Keep this perspective in mind as you say Anita's Prayer For Beauty to help you reconnect with the gorgeous goddess that you were born to be. You can read the prayer in this week's InnerGoddess newsletter, or in the book, The Goddess DIET, See a Goddess in the Mirror in 21 Days.
Getting Real About Loving Your Body
Dove commissioned a study in 2005 and found that out of 3300 girls and women between the ages of 15 and 64 in 10 countries, 68 percent agreed that media and advertising set an unrealistic standard of beauty that they could not hope to achieve. It’s important to remember that yes, models are beautiful, but again, they are only one kind of beautiful. Thankfully the air-brush was unheard of when Rubens, Botticelli and Bouguereau were creating their fabulous works. They have inspired countless modern day works such as Venice Reconstituted at Venice Beach (by California artist Rip Cronk, 1989, pictured left), or Baron Von Lind’s stunning pin-ups, or the alluring burlesque performers that captivate audiences world-wide.

It appears the artists also inspired Anita's Prayer For Beauty that you can read in this week's InnerGoddess newsletter. You can subscribe to the newsletter here.
