Many experts insist that a person’s level of success is often a direct reflection of the five people they spend the most time with. I wholeheartedly agree that the people in your life play a monumental role.
However, I find that women often require much more than a great paycheck to feel their life is successful and worthwhile. They are often incomplete unless they have a job they love, good health, thriving children, loving friends, and a happy marriage. In short, the goddess within wants it all.
In many cases it is the totality of their environment, not just the people, that determine how healthy, happy, and successful they feel.
A woman who lives alone can create the perfect environment within which to thrive. Acknowledging and indulging her unique style, her own personal form of alchemy, she can combine the colors, aromas, sounds, and 4-legged friends that bring her the greatest level of joy. This beautiful safe haven of a home that she creates for herself allows her to face the hustle and bustle, the unexpected deadlines and stresses of everyday life, in a much more balanced, and centered way.
For homes with many inhabitants, the feeling of serenity and unique style can sometimes become lost. In it’s place is often a sense of warmth and belonging.
Regardless of the home environment, once a woman heads out into the world, she is faced with environments of every kind and must learn to thrive in each one despite how inhospitable or foreign some may seem. From rude waiters to ice covered roads and bosses with unrealistic expectations, she has to develop a way to stay centered and balanced regardless.
Adorning the Goddess
Hence the need for jewelry. I’m serious about that!
The things she adorns herself with, including the accessories she chooses, offer the opportunity to recreate that perfect home environment wherever she finds herself. Just like the beauty of her home can make her feel loved and nurtured, the clothes she wears and the jewelry, purse, and other accessories she chooses, can give her that perfect environment as well.
When she chooses her clothing and jewelry, even her hairstyle, in a way that she finds uplifting and empowering, she is enveloping herself in the “right” environment to go out there and thrive in the world. The beauty of the design, the specific colors in her clothes and jewelry, the texture and feel of the fabric, and the empowering energy of the crystals and gems in her necklace, earrings, bracelet(s), and rings are the personal alchemy she needs to create a mini version of her beautiful nurturing environment at home.
