The Fashion Cookbook has grown a lot over the years, and it has expanded to cover topics far beyond outfit inspiration. In fact, we hope to inspire our readers on a deep level. Today I’m eager to share a different kind of post with you. Victoria Cyzewski, our wellness contributor wrote a beautiful and insightful piece about embracing your full existence. Victoria played a vital role in my self-love and spiritual journey and it means so much to me that she has joined The Fashion Cookbook and can bring a new perspective to our team. I hope you can take a moment to read her words and truly reflect on them.
We are souls having a human experience. We posses both a grounded earthly pull within our bones and our cells, and yet the soaring whimsical thoughts of the divine within our hearts. This duality that is the nature of having an earthly human experience, combined with our relationship to the majesty and abundance of the universe can often times become confusing and tricky for us when we are thinking with our rational human mind. More often than not, when we are experiencing a human world of anxiety, confusion, and opposition, we have forgotten the flip side of our existence. The magical, eternal, non-material side of our existence that calls us upwards to the sky and to the heavens. It’s the golden light of calm that oxygenates your cells when you take a relaxed deep breath. It’s the indescribable awe and humbleness you feel when you watch the orange sunrise over the ocean. It’s the real truth of our existence in this suit of clothes we call a body. Though the body is anchored in this human life we are here to do the work of our quiet, higher soul’s calling.Surrender
Let go of the certainty you think accompanies a world you can see and feel in this moment of consciousness. Transcend the belief that your eyes, your hands, your feet, your beating heart and all that rules you and dictates your accomplishments, your failures, your joys, and your disappointments. Surrender to the truth that you were created from much more than that. So much more that it is too grand, too colorful, too full of blessings, grace and majesty for you to see with these eyes. Surrender to the quiet that contains all the answers you have been seeking. Change Your Prayer
Ask the energetic fairies pulling your consciousness higher what they would have you do; How they would have you be and show up in this human experience? Shift your prayer from asking how you can acquire things and achieve things, to a prayer of how you can serve. Ask the divine how it would like you to be of service and the vehicle of divine love. Pray to simply be the faucet; Be the contraption in which honest love and wisdom can speak through and can connect with your brothers and sisters having this experience with you.
