What has dressing got to do with dreams? Everything.
That's not just my opinion! The principle of 'So within so without' is as ancient as time itself! Lets see what some of the modern world's great personal development leaders have said:
The more you see yourself as what you’d like to become, and act as if what you want is already there, the more you’ll activate those dormant forces that will collaborate to transform your dream into your reality. Abraham Hicks
The quantum field responds not to what we want; it responds to who we are being.
Dr Joe Dispenza
You attract what you 'are', not what you want. Les Brown
When you are aligned with the truth of who you truly are, then you experience bliss.
All these posts refer to the the phenomena popularly called the Law of Attraction. When it comes to success, attracting love and money and up-levelling our life, this law underlies everything.
So how does it work for style?
Well it's not rocket science. Well just a wee bit.
But actually it works by actively preparing our whole neurological, physiological, emotional and vital (vibrational) energy to set us up to achieve what we desire.
In doing so, it 'primes' us to grow into, evolve toward and create whatever vision of a fabulous life that thrills us. I love the 'priming' because it takes the process from metaphysical to grounded. But the process is the same.
And it begins with a shift of focus. It is about shifting our perception of our daily world to include and celebrate IN ADVANCE that which we are aspiring to.
In other words, rather than wanting something badly, we deliberately practise thought patterns that affirm the presence (or imminent realisation) of that to which we are aspiring, even before we see the evidence.
This practise, written about by early thought pioneer Neville Goddard, is now a pretty commonly known success skill and tool. Known about but little practised. It's just on the edge of 'woo' for a lot of people to be disparaging. But that doesn't stop it working for millions of others who have taken up the practise of visualisation, affirmation, meditation and self care as a means to be the best they can be.
And in essence, it comes down to something really simple: You cannot get more before being more. You can DO more but that isn't the real dynamic at work. It's Being more. Being more of you playing at your highest level.
This is beyond manifestation. This is true REALisation. And it is a most delicious, fun, thrilling, badass adventure! Every breath you take, every thought of the 60,000 or so, that pings through your mind daily, every word you speak, every garment you wear, every workout you do (or don't) even every morsel of food you put into your beautiful body, every interaction with another, it is all either accelerating your aspirations or slowing them down. Even the simplest habits are either contributing to your most legendary vision of life, or keeping it mediocre. And that includes the ritual of dressing.
Glamour is something more than what you put on your body. It has to do with the way you carry yourself and the impact you have on others. Tom Ford
How you dress tells the rest of the world how you expect to be treated.
There is so much more to our clothing choices than magnetising our dreams in too!
For many people, daily dressing is merely a matter of habit, but if is such a powerful quantum success tool, it might pay us to be a little more careful in the choices we make.
Two published studiescarried out by Psychology Magazine, shows some of the very subtle ways in which clothing influences all kinds of impressions about us. Our clothes make a huge difference to what people think about us – and without us knowing or in ways we couldn’t even imagine. People's brains automatically make their assessments in the first few seconds of seeing another; assessments that go way beyond how well you are dressed and how neat and tidy you might look.
So we have both quantum science and neuroscience at the service of our style habits!
Now, lets ruffle this up a bit and have some fun.
Here are some questions for you to journal on which will reveal if you are using this simple but powerful ritual to your best life advantage, or not! Write the answers to these questions and use them as a mirror!
When you make morning clothes choices, what criteria do you use?
Time or lack of it, to throw any old outfit together?
Dressing to attract the opposite sex?
Dressing to fit in to an institutional environment?
Don't really care as long you're not naked?
Dressing to be taken seriously and for leadership?
In uniform or dress dictated by your work, so no choice?
Covered up with overalls or protective garments?
Presenting your best self to the world or to honour others?
How much is the Law of Attraction able to get it's quantumly sticky little fingers on your best life in those scenarios? Yep, practically nada.
But you can change all that with Mindful Dressing and finding your true Image.
Start with Mindful Dressing. Begin to look at your shopping and styling habits objectively and ask yourself daily if they are serving your highest good.
Don't take my word for it either....
I didn't know what I wanted to do, but I always knew the woman I wanted to be.
Diane Von Furstenberg Designer and Style Maven
You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it. Edith Head.
Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There's no how-to road map to style. It's about self expression and, above all, attitude. Iris Apfel
And so the style wisdom goes on and on..
So where does that leave you in front of your wardrobe? With a choice.
