This is somewhat of a light topic this week, so I’ll keep the message short too. It’s about fashion, image, and the “spiritual” look. I LOVE the “spiritual” look and I love the topic of personal style and how we use it to tell ourselves and the world a story about who we are.
Adapting a “spiritual” look means a lot of different things to a lot of people. Monks wear robes. Sikhs wear turbans. Nuns wear habits. Many other spiritual people don uniforms that adhere to their spiritual lifestyle. And a lot of people wear crystals, stones, beads, and all sorts of things that remind them of their spiritual path. In fact, last year I had golden earrings made for me in the form of a rose. These earrings are an homage to my clairvoyant training, which changed my life. The specific clairvoyant method I use taught us to direct our imagery into viewing receptacle in the form of a rose, and it’s so special to me I wanted to have earrings to remind me of how beautiful and precious this work is.
In the video above, I explore the topic of the spiritual look a bit with some anecdotes about the whole thing. What is interesting for me personally is how people react to me considering I look very normal and not woo-woo and may seem in fact perhaps a tad conservative. I am gradually getting back to my very bohemian roots and like reinventing my look every year, but my time spent in corporate America, as well as my wish to be taken seriously with this psychic and energy healing stuff which EVERYONE CAN LEARN HOW TO DO!, makes me want to present a more approachable appearance.
There are 2 things we have to remember about our look: one is that we can constantly change it and reinvent ourselves WHENEVER WE WANT. Why stay stuck in a rut? Why not try out new colors, new styles, new things? It’s fun and a great way to instigate change in other areas of our lives.
The second thing is that we can’t really judge a book by a cover. Any charlatan can put on a robe and call themselves a guru, just like any mom running around town in “athleisurewear” can be a spiritual teacher, clairvoyant, and energy healer even if she looks super plain and normal.
So, just a simple but interesting topic today…if you have any comments on the matter or observations from your own life please let me know! 🙂
