What is it that gets you hooked in a particular clothing style that you can say, “This is the kind of look I want to show every day!”?
Is it because the style gives you comfort or is it the other way around? Like you yourself give comfort to the dress, or the skirt, or the jeans because they fit you not just physically but also in a more meaningful way.
You may be wondering what this means or how it’s done. It’s simple, really. I truly believe that one of the most powerful ways we can honor our ancestors is to fulfill our purpose on this planet. For me, this means that as I work on my relationship with myself, my work in this world, and my relationship with money, I connect with my ancestors to uncover what hardships they endured and the lessons that came from them.
Why am I talking about this? Well, hear me out. I am staying in line with my word of the year: MAGNETIC.
I joined a magical mastermind group run by an image consultant who helps her clients fully express themselves through the way they dress. I must admit, over the years I have played it safe when it comes to my style, especially in more corporate environments, and fall into old professional outfits that don’t feel good or true to who I am.
Now that I work for myself, I thought it would be fun and interesting to devote more time and energy to making sure that my outside attire matches how I feel on the inside. What I didn’t anticipate is that this work is deeper than getting a whole new wardrobe. It is a deepening of self-trust.
I am learning that it isn’t so much about the clothes themselves but what your style actually brings you. When you get to know your elements and style and it is accurately reflected on the outside, you feel so ignited, grounded, and true to yourself and people on the outside feel it.
You see, it’s really the other way around. It is not about the dress, it’s about the one wearing it – you. When you trust that you can carry the attire beautifully as you can no matter the style, trust me… you’ll rock it.
This type of work helps you get to know yourself in a deeper way. I now take my time when shopping and intentionally listen to my intuitive hits, my desires, and only act and buy things when I am really lit up by them.
I use to be in a rush at Target and aimlessly buy things in the cart without taking some time to make sure that I was really excited about what I was exchanging my money for.
How often do you listen to your intuitive hits, your desires and act on them because you trust yourself implicitly?
Trusting yourself to go big, to do the risky things, if you make a mistake that you have your back so you can take yourself to the next level?
I know I was a bit shy to do so.
I will take you along with me on this fun and deep journey to hopefully inspire you to be more intentional and have your outside match your inside.
If you want to work with me individually in my 4-month experience called “The anchor”, helping high-achievers, high-performers, anyone with an A-game, go to the next level and feel amazing, please reach out to schedule a time to chat.
Have a great week!
