Have you ever met someone and experienced their confidence, beauty, and presence before they even opened their mouth to speak?
Or maybe you experienced the opposite and you couldn’t pinpoint why…..
Your clothes are speaking for you every day – but do you like what they’re saying? Are they saying:
“I’m an authentic, beautiful person who knows exactly who I am and what I’m here to do. I deserve success and am here to make a difference!”?
Or are they covering up the authentic you that is in there….that other people aren’t seeing?
I know what you may be thinking…”I’m a holistic practitioner …it’s not like it matters when I’m at work.”
I can totally relate. I spent 80% of my life in a white labcoat. I felt that what I wore underneath my lab coat didn’t matter, as long as it was clean. Fussing over clothes seemed so shallow to me.
What about outside of work? Of course I wanted to look good, but didn’t fuss over it. I used to look at other people who looked nice in their outfits & thought “they look good….but they probably pay too much unnecessary attention to themselves to look good”. I thought to myself that I’m beautiful on the inside, and it doesn’t matter what I wear.
But I felt like I was in a funk at the time (the photo to the left was when I became a part of a highly invested mastermind, and started getting out of my funk. But notice I didn’t pay much attention to what I wore). And when my business grew, there was a part of me that felt ready for a makeover. A makeover to a new me. I didn’t want to feel like I was in a funk anymore.
I went to a women’s small business conference and met a woman who spoke about this. She seemed to know what she was talking about. She seemed to have a good eye for choosing business outfits, and I thought about working with her. But something in me held back.
Then a year later, I met Liana Chaouli. I was at a mastermind retreat, and she was a guest speaker. She came with a rack full of clothes with her. Having never met the audience, she called people up (both men & women) and asked them to wear certain outfits on the rack. Each time Liana had different people try on different clothes, they looked gorgeous…and the clothes fit perfectly on them. For someone who hates shopping for clothes because it takes too long (and I find it hard to find things that fit), I was amazed and in awe, as was everyone else.
A guy friend of mine, a physician, was there, and Liana had him put on a pink shirt (who would have ever thought) and it looked SO good on him. It actually made him look more credible and approachable.
One thing I learned that day was that a color or style that looks good on someone else doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you. No wonder! (Years back when I was in high school, I wore this bright lime green colored dress for a local International Festival where I was representing Taiwan/China and wondered why I just didn’t look good in it.)
After Liana spoke that day, I went up to the rack of clothes and started looking at the clothes. I picked something out, and Liana told me it wasn’t right for me. She was offering the opportunity for a day with her and she said “you need to do this” in a loving way. In my heart I knew it was something I needed to do.
Looking back, that was a defining moment for me. That year, I was not yet speaking, but I saw myself on stages. When I worked with Liana, she got me clothes & this time I had my own rack…and everything fit and looked good. It was like she saw into me…she saw into the me I was becoming.
That year became the year I had 5 figure months from speaking, and was speaking at national and international venues within the first year of my second business.
I never thought clothes could help me become the fullest expression of me, and put me in a higher vibration of resonance to easily attract the people I wanted to attract in business….
