Introducing the Reflect Beauty Awards: A Celebration of Diverse Beauty


By Sheila Marmon and Nikki Walton of ReflectBeauty.com

#RepresentationInBeautyMatters and we all deserve an equal opportunity to not only embrace and find confidence in the hair and skin we’re in, but to see ourselves reflected in popular media. And while we’ve witnessed an explosion in available makeup shades, and products for a variety of hair textures and skin needs, there’s still work to be done, progress to be made, and real, lasting beauty inclusivity to be achieved.  Change is not an option here, it’s a necessity-- for our quality of life, and for the benefit of the world.

A Seat at the Table
They say the most effective way for a woman of color to affect change, is to not just secure a seat at the table, but to build her own table! And the inaugural Reflect Beauty Awards is such a table-- built for us, by us, to achieve real, lasting beauty equity worldwide. We are a force: unapologetically showing up as our authentic selves, drinking our water, eating healthy, not skipping leg day, reading our books, and loving ourselves. We are making the shift from being part of a collective beauty standard to realizing that we are our own beauty standard. We are YOU. And the Reflect Beauty Awards is our table, so pull up a chair!

Your job as Consciousness isn’t to stop the ‘negative’ feels, or change them into ‘positive’ ones, but to introduce even 1% of this divine, inherent Love into every situation.

You Don't Have to Feel Good... You Just Have to Feel God.


In ‘09, I was all about ‘The Secret’... positive thinking... the law of attraction. My limited understanding led me to believe that human excitement and happiness would ‘attract’ the stuff I wanted, and so I set out on the impossible mission of staying in a super elevated mood. I’d be good for a couple of days, and then frustration, anger, or stress would come to visit and I’d feel even worse, because I was mad at myself for being mad 😂 Insanity.

10 years later, after hundreds of books and countless hours of daily meditation, I came to view both human excitement and human sadness as deviations... distractions from a truer experience. Beneath the thoughts, and familiar ‘good’ and ‘bad’ emotions is a subtle vibration of peaceful-joy. It’s been called your ‘home vibration’ or the way your soul expresses in your body. It’s a God feeling that transcends even your best good feeling. It’s a flow, a glow, a warmth, an unconditional, uncaused loving silence.
