The rising interest in spirituality
There is, if you haven’t already noticed, a rising interest in spirituality across the board; from a general interest in refining your mental health through spiritual resources, to improving how you handle the everyday challenges within the workplace. This trend includes the ways rituals, such as beauty and fashion improve ones’ approach, continues to spike with souls whom are open to take a more open approach when discussing personal mental health, political correctness and appreciating spirituality and other unfamiliar subjects of conversation.
As a result, this increase in awareness has seen the fashion industry, in particular, focus on providing fashion items and accessories that have meaning far beyond ‘looking good’. The focus now is to provide superlative style, along with highly energized spiritual items to help develop a deeper relationship between the customer and their style.
Fashion, spirituality and improving the soul
There is a delusion, especially with fashion in social media, that the industry and those within it are superficial, materialistic, and are absorbed on the wrong principles to improve their mood, mind, and spirituality.
However, history shows that spirituality and fashion have always had an underlying relationship. Varying cultures, eras, and communities have used fashion to convey spiritual messages and beliefs. Particularly in the Egyptian era. Although in a vain mindset, the desire to improve one’s spiritual mind through fashion and style has always been used as a concept throughout time.
With focusing on style, looks, and fashion, the ‘vanity’ tag frequently follows. What we need to address is the importance that combining spiritual materials in the fashion world can improve our soul, along with our mind, including cultivating positive thoughts.
Connecting with your soul via the medium of fashion
As we study more about our star signs, our personalities, human design, and characteristics, we learn more about ourselves and how we can improve our spiritual style and create a nourishing, positive psychology. For example, using gemstone necklaces could be seen as a subtle way to carry the energy stone of your choice, parallel to your soul and personality in a stylish, less-obvious way than one might think while reaping the energy assistances along the way.
As a matter of fact, founder of ATC made a dilibirate choice some years ago to only wear colours that boosted her mood. Since the Swedish winters can be dark and gloomy as it is; she made a mindful shift in how she dressed in the morning. By using colours that made her happy, in return she often received comments on how positively it effected those she encountered, from the people she knew to having strangers coming up to her complimenting her colourful and happy way of dressing herself.
spirituality is creativity
Have you ever felt more alive than when bringing something to life, in whatever form? Have you ever felt happier than when appreciating one of your own creations—whether a child, a drawing, a photograph or a gourmet meal? Ernest Holmes says, “to be spiritual is to create”—and he says this with the understanding that to be spiritually nourished is the only way to be authentically happy.
Here are three quotes from wise people who agree:
1. “You become more divine as you become more creative. All the religions of the world have said God is the creator. I don’t know whether he is the creator or not, but one thing I know: the more creative you become, the more godly you become. When your creativity comes to a climax, when your whole life becomes creative, you live in God. So he must be the creator because people who have been creative have been closest to him.” – Osho
2. “Creation is your Source and your only real function.” – A Course in Miracles
3. “It is our nasty twentieth-century materialism that makes us feel: what is the use of writing, painting, etc., unless one has an audience or gets cash for it? Socrates and the men of the Renaissance did so much because the rewards were intrinsic, i.e., the enlargement of the soul.” – Brenda Ueland
