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?

Traveling in Style

Greetings, it has been awhile, and I am back from a much needed Goddess sabbatical. If you live where I live – or have traveled to many major cities – I will bet that you have come across people who you instantly know are tourists, especially the North Americans (*smiles*).  I really never understood the concept of the unattractive hip packs, the over-sized sweatshirts and loose fitting t-shirts, the heavy and bulky looking sneakers, and the funny-shaped baseball caps.  Certainly, there are so many options out there for comfortable and stylish clothing, footwear, and accessories for travel. I am not certain why people on holiday still dress in such odd and unpolished ways.  Perhaps they do not have a clue, or perhaps they are simply following what is portrayed in the films of the tourist characters.

As for myself, when I am traveling, I usually take into account where I will be traveling to: the weather, the culture, the people, and how they express their sense of style. From there, I adjust my individual style to fit in while still keeping it simple, unique, comfortable, and certainly easy to pack and wash by hand.

I hope you like the looks in this post from my recent goddess travels including the Awakened Retreat I hosted in Cabrera, a quiet and pretty town in the Dominican Republic.  I like keeping my inner goddess happy with clothing that feels soft and luxurious against my skin, easy to slip on and off and that allows me to breathe freely. Cotton, silk, rayons, and slinky silky knits are usually my favorites to wear. Most importantly, I never travel without a pair of my oh so comfortable stylish leather sandals handmade in Mykonos.

Think about where your next travels might take you – How will you pack for it?  What will you be wearing? If you need assistance, let me know. My style goddesses and I would find delight in helping you. Many of the clothes and accessories in this post are from my goddess sanctuary, tu-anh Boutique.  If you do not live near Old Town Alexandria, you can always shop online instead.

Let’s Talk About Red, Baby!

This knit dress is so comfortable, yet so sexy while flaunting just enough skin.

Red is passionate, red is hot, red is desire, red is courage, red is power, red is love, red is sexy, and red is spiritually grounding! And if you are in need to strengthen your root chakra, then why not add more red into your life?  Recently, I have been feeling a bit ungrounded, a bit lovesick, a bit out of balance, and a bit uncertain where my life is going. So guess what I did to bring my goddess confidence and sense of self back? Wear red, of course! Below are some of my favorite looks this Holiday season from our Goddess Collection at the sanctuary. Do you dare to flaunt your goddess hotness with one of these red numbers?

If you do not dare to wear red from head to toe, try a red tu-anh accessory instead!
