Gray is the New Black

Love this luxurious knit dress on Julianne from our Mykonos Collection.

I know, it is so easy and safe to do.  Wake up in a rush, walk to your closet, pick out an all-black outfit, and then out the door.  I have been there myself, and actually very frequently during the winter months!  But at our goddess sanctuary and lifestyle boutique,  we all agree that black is chic and classic, but can sometimes be a drain on divine energy. So our new favorite color? Gray, of course!

This might seem like an odd choice for me since I am a lover of vibrant colors, and especially of white. I wear gray, however, when I want to tune into my inner strength and grounding goddess confidence without being overpowered by the energy of the vibrant colors. Gray in my opinion also exudes sophistication, refinement, and elegance.  While everyone else is playing it safe with black, which can sometimes show dust and dirt so easily, gray will make heads turn for a second look.

I hope you like the sample looks of gray in this post from our latest bohemian goddess collection. How about you? Are you ready to switch from black to gray?

Can Wearing White Raise Your Vibrations?

I have been a strong believer that the colors you wear and surround yourself with can have a profound impact on your energy level and mental well being.  In fact, I believe that colors can transform your life and help you attract what you want, as well as keeping away what you don’t want. As for me, since the beginning of my spiritual transformation and awakening in 2014 – a time when I opened my heart and allowed the spirit of God to gift me with a whole new level of awareness and perception of the world around me – it was then that the color white became a part of my work and personal identity.

Below are some of the reasons why I am attracted to white:

  • White is cleansing, and it keeps darkness and negativity away.
  • I feel fresh, renewed, awakened, and free of emotional clutter.
  • My mind is clear and free from fear and doubt.
  • I feel feminine, earthy, stylish, natural, and enlightened – even immortal at times. 🙂
  • I feel as though I am protected by an angelic presence.
  • I feel powerful and free to express my truth openly.
  • Miraculous and magical things seem to happen around me when I am wearing white.
  • I feel, as Yogi Bhajan says, that it extends and strengthens my aura.

Very interestingly, the ancient Greeks wore white to bed to ensure pleasant dreams.  That explains why I also like wearing white to bed and also carry white and neutral color goddess dresses at my sanctuary and lifestyle boutique! And for this earthy Taurus goddess like moi, having crisp white linens of fine cotton on my bed is a must!

And you? Are you feeling inspired to incorporate more white in your life?

The Power to Choose – The Third Chakra

CAPTION

I love designing pretty feminine happy accessories.

Earlier this year while at the Pearl Laguna for a Yoga and Hiking Retreat, I discovered that my Solar Plexus (the third chakra) was a little out of balance, which explains some of the inconsistencies that I was seeing in my life and with my inner goddess confidence being questioned.

The third chakra is the center of willpower and the perception of who you are. When this chakra is balanced, you own your personal power and you are confident with who you are and what you want. It also helps you to take action and move your life forward responsibly, regardless of the challenges that may arise.

When this chakra is not balanced or is blocked, you are reactive rather than proactive, you may experience emotional outbursts, you may just sit back and let life pass you by, you may not be able to make decisions so easily and all this and bring your confidence level down as well. Does this sound familiar?

Just know that in life you have the power to choose what makes your heart sing, what gives you passion and joy, what fulfills you – and no one can do this but you. So all you have to do is CHOOSE. Choose to be happy, choose to be confident, choose to be open to receive, choose to be powerful, choose to be with the mate of your dreams, etc. Whatever you choose, you will have.

The color yellow is associated with the third chakra. In order to help strengthen and balance this chakra, I not only like to eat yellow foods, such as bananas, eggs, yellow peppers, etc., but I also like to wear yellow, too! (see below) It brightens my spirit and makes me feel like I have sunshine with me all the time.

Not only wearing yellow brings me joy, but being kissed by a precious little pretty goddess makes me feel even more wonderful.

I am convinced that blondes do have more fun, especially when they wear yellow, too. 🙂

I love love Mexico and the color richness everywhere I go!
