Feel comfortable and powerful in your own skin

Paris Jackson recently shared an Instagram post portraying a black and white photo of her topless self with a lengthy essay on why it’s important to feel confident naked.

i'll say it again for those questioning what i stand for and how i express myself. nudity started as a movement for ‘going back to nature’, ‘expressing freedom’, ‘being healthier’ and was even called a philosophy. being naked is part of what makes us human. for me it helps me feel more connected to mama gaia. i'm usually naked when i garden. it's actually a beautiful thing and you don't have to make it sexual the way many hollywood stars (and the media) do. not only is your body a temple and should be worshipped as so, but also part of feminism is being able to express yourself in your own way, whether it's being conservative and wearing lots of clothes or showing yourself. there's different ways of absorbing mother earth's energy, my favorites are earthing which is absorbing the earths vibrations from contact between the soil and your bare feet, as well as letting your naked skin absorb the rays of the sun. the human body is a beautiful thing and no matter what "flaws" you have, whether it be scars, or extra weight, stretch marks, freckles, whatever, it is beautiful and you should express yourself however you feel comfortable. if this makes some of you upset i completely understand and i encourage you to maybe no longer follow me, but i cannot apologize for this in any way. it is who i am and i refuse to shy away and keep my beliefs a secret. every one as an opinion and every one has their beliefs. we don't always agree with one another and that's okay. but again, we are all human, and to appreciate the things that other people do that make us human helps us feel connected. how can that be a bad thing?

A post shared by Paris-Michael K. Jackson (@parisjackson) on

She explains that nudity isn’t necessarily sexual – it all depends on how you use it.

For her, being nude in her garden is a way to connect to nature, and connect to her body in a way which empowers her.

Many women don’t feel comfortable in their own skin even when they are alone in the shower.

It’s common to focus on our flaws and constantly compare ourselves to others, but instead, Jackson offers a new perspective – to view your body in a more spiritual way and be thankful for what it gives you – the energy and senses.

Confidence and self-love is much more beautiful than a tight bod – and much harder to achieve.
