We judge things we don’t understand and we judge things we’re secretly jealous of. I remember many hikes up Runyon Canyon where I would pass by bleach blonde, latte toting ladies talking about their spirituality. I judged them. I judged them for how they looked and I judged them for their idea of “spirituality”… before I even came to know what spirituality was. (Truth bomb, I still low-key judge people that workout with coffees…) Anyway… they, despite their looks, had reached a level of consciousness that I was not ready to recieve. I guess the misconception that we’ve painted as a society is that enlightened people are either hippies that don’t shower or monks in robes…. Los Angeles has proven to me that a bombshell blonde stripper can still be vibrating on a higher level of consciousness than everyone around them. You can be fabulous and enlightened simultaneously and we shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. (They teach us that in grade school, right?)

I’m extremely self aware and conscious of the Universe’s energies and how they work. I believe in Mother Nature and the powers of the underworld. I frequently write about the law of attraction, full moon ceremonies, and zodiac qualities. So, does sharing a post about a bold new lipstick make me less of a spiritual gangster? NOPE! Spirituality and enlightenment is a state of mind and state of self and how your energy emits into the world. (There’s so much more to it, but that’s a whole other post…) It’s not one size fits all, but at it’s core is similar between other enlightened beings. We all look different and that’s what makes us amazingly fabulous.

While there is more to life than excess and vanity, I understand why people want to look their best. And you should look your best if it makes you happy. Put that lipstick on, rock some killer hair, and pour yourself into your most fierce skinny jeans. Maybe all those things keep someone’s personal vibration high.Β  Raise your vibration and the vibration of the people around you. Be conscious of what fabulosities (just made that word up…) make you feel good. That’s all part of your own personal journey, but make sure that whatever you do, you stay grateful, thank the universe, and help impart knowledge on others. You can be fabulous without being self-serving– are you picking up what I’m putting down?

So, what do you think? Does this make sense? Will you judge people a little less by their outside and truly pay attention to what’s inside their hearts and minds? I know that once I hit my own awakening, I felt really bad for judging those fabulous hikers.

Have a fabulously enlightened day!
