A Simple White Dress

The dress is from our latest Mykonos Collection made in Greece. The photo is one I shot at our retreat villa in Cabrera, Dominican Republic.

Despite what you might see, hear and read in the media, fashion does not have to be complicated, and you certainly should not have to spend time over-analyzing your wardrobe. You can keep your personal style beautiful yet simple, clean, and relaxed, with a few basic staples like a white dress.  Not only does a piece like this keep you looking fresh, but it can also bring a sense of serenity with its calming nature, easing tension, sadness, and stress.

I believe that the knowledge of color psychology is a divine and powerful gift that goddesses and titans can teach themselves because colors have their own unique function and meaning. The color white is excellent at clearing negative energy, liberating ourselves from emotional clutter, cleansing the mind of fears and doubts, while totally raising our vibrations and converting our energy into enlightenment.

I began incorporating white regularly into my wardrobe and surroundings over five years ago when I was developing a stronger and more powerful spiritual relationship with God and the divine light. Wearing white gave me meticulous perception abilities and soon became a part of my work and personal identity. A white dress is one of my favorite things to wear because I feel so fresh, feminine, beautiful, and protected by angels.

White is indeed a timeless and very powerful color which works silently, purely, innocently, and softly. The color white symbolizes quiet strength, peace, light, goodness, cleanliness, equality, completion, and simplicity. it is immaculate in essence, free, pristine, and open to welcoming new beginnings and positivity. In some cultures, white represents death but in a way which embraces the ending of a life and the resurrection of a new one. It is said that white is the color of perfection and is very effective in inspiring creativity. When I wear white, I can start on a project and keep going with a strong fire inside, and I won’t stop until I have completed it no matter how tired I am. White keeps me clean and full of truth and light.

Warm summer days are all about staying healthy, hydrated, and cool in the heat. This is why wearing white is great because it keeps our body temperature down, our mood light and feminine. Pair a white dress with a straw hat and easy slip-on sandals to keep you floating along in style.  I hope you like the photos and video of model Ryann Marie that I took on our Winter Goddess Awakened retreat that I led in the Dominican Republic this past February. Doesn’t she look so ready for some pleasure, sun, and sand?

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?

Let’s Celebrate the Mother Goddess!

My mother at 19 in Vietnam. I love her hair!

Happy be-lated Mother’s day!

To be honest, I don’t really think that we should wait until Mother’s Day to celebrate the amazing mother goddesses in our lives.  We should celebrate a mother’s love, support, inner strength, and radiance every day.  Imagine all the things she has given up and the sacrifices she has made to give us the gift of life and light.

My mother is a super woman.  She is the reason I exist. She is my role model, my mentor, my angel, my life coach, my partner in crime, my fearless inner strength and so much more. Her beauty is so radiant inside and out, even in her 70’s today. When she enters the room, her quiet strength grounds and protects me.  I am forever grateful for her and so proud to be her daughter.  Without her, I am nothing.  Below are photos including some taken in our sanctuary this past week of the mother goddesses I so adore, including my own goddess family. We celebrated their beautiful feminine energy by making sure every mother goddess that came in to see us got some special pampering.

My mother and my younger sisters are my best friends forever and my life.  All 3 of them are super mother goddesses. They are so amazing juggling it all. I don't know how they do it. I love them so much!!!!!!
