Violet Style and the Crown Chakra

dress

Be creative in adding purple in your style.

Now that you have a little background on the Root Chakra, you know how ensuring its balance can help you feel grounded, centered, and happy.  I have also shared my thoughts on the Solar Plexus (third) and the Heart Chakra with you. Today, let’s travel upward to the Crown Chakra, which is connected to our spirituality, our divine self, and our source of higher power.

The color associated with the Crown Chakra is violet, a secondary color that is a blend of warm red and cool blue together. Violet and purple signify aristocracy, wealth, creativity, spirituality, luxury, passion, mysticism, awareness, and so much more. For the past 6-12 months, slowly day by day, I can feel the opening of my Crown Chakra. Sometimes it is so extreme that I do not feel human. I feel alive, powerful, awakened – my awareness is so clear, my body full of strength, my mind so sharp, and my life’s vision is so apparent in front of me. My ego is no longer affecting my decisions and I speak of nothing but beauty, truth, and love.

If you find yourself feeling aches and pain on your body, being indecisive about things, experiencing a lack of purpose, being out of balance with your life, and feeling depressed more often than usual, then your Crown Chakra must be blocked. Not to worry, there are many things that you can do to open up the energy of this chakra and get your goddess or titan vitality back. In addition to daily affirmations, prayers, deep breathing, meditation, and the use of essential oils, I have also included some other creative ideas in this post to help you apply more purple or violet in your life and open up the spiritual energy of this chakra. Soon you will be back in connection with your higher self and inner goddess. So please, keep me posted on how you do!

Picture Perfect Positano, Italy

CAPTION

Did you like my recent post on shopping, walking, and eating in Sorrento? Italy is one of my favorite countries to explore for the next few years. So let’s continue our tour of the Amalfi Coast with a stop in fashionably chic and picturesque Positano!

Like the architecture and lush greenery that are part of the cliffs in this village, the fashions and accessories are earthy, fresh, romantic, and full of life. I love that a lot is focused around natural fibers and materials such as silk, cotton, leather, and linen. And just like the Greek Islands, the color white is everywhere in the shops and cafes. It not only keeps you feeling cool in the sun, but white repels negativity, helping to clear away dark energy around you and keeping your vibrations high.

I hope you are inspired by these photos to stay clean and fresh this summer by adding a touch of the Positano lifestyle to your daily routine, making it more simple, romantic, and alive.  If you are in Old Town Alexandria on a Friday or Saturday, make sure to stop by our sanctuary and check out our Positano Collection from my recent trip or shop it online! Stay tuned for more from my Italian travels…

Shopping, Walking…Eating in Sorrento

IMG_6697

Whites and neutrals in natural fibers are musts!

Did you know Sorrento, Italy has ruins dating back to 600 BC? You know how much I love the Eternal City of Rome, so on my recent buying trip to Italy, I made sure to head south by train to the charming and picturesque seaside town of Sorrento.  And I was definitely not disappointed!

Shopping was interesting and a lot of fun! I found so many pretty and unique styles of dresses and tops made from linen, cotton, and silks for our goddess fans. The food was delicious and the people were very friendly, especially the titans!🙂 I enjoyed my walks throughout the town, and I so loved seeing the different styles of architecture. Like many places in Italy, the fashion is well constructed, timeless, and unbelievably stylish.  And the food – what can I say?  Fresh and delicious!

I hope you like the photos in this post. I will be sharing with you more of Italy in the next few posts. Are you inspired to do some Italian travels now?
