“It's not the world that needs to change - it's our consciousness we must raise”
― Rasheed Ogunlaru
This week we are bringing together our current favorites that will help you want to lead and/or maintain a conscious lifestyle.
a. Soulie, simply, is handcrafted essentials for your life and your yoga practice. But, it goes a little deeper than just that. The founder, Renee, wanted to create a company that would work exclusively and directly with artisans and non-profit organizations to try to make a difference in their world. But Soulie is not just a company. In fact, it is an attempt, an attempt to change the world one person, one piece of art, one hand at a time. It is a story written by thousands of artisans and thousands of consumers separated by oceans, languages and religion but united in one belief – the belief that each of us has the potential to make this world a better place. She believes that where we spend our money shapes our world. Knock yourselves out with one of these handcrafted beauties.
b. YOGiiZA’s mission is to give people a choice that is a reflection of conscious values. They make stylish athletic and casual wear with Organic Cotton. Most Athletic wear companies are using fabrics, dyes, and other materials that are not only bad for the environment but also harmful to personal health. One of YOGiiZA’s founders believes that, “the brand is congruous with yoga (a practice that refines consciousness) to produce or sell products that are not healthy but conscious.” When you choose the YOGiiZA brand you know that the products are consciously made with the environment, personal health, and community in mind.
c. What do Phil Jackson, Anthony Robbins, and Britney Spears have in common? Energy Muse Jewelry, that’s what! Energy Muse is a conscious lifestyle brand that provides tools of empowerment, inspiration and hope in the form of jewelry. Each piece combines crystal energy and intention to create a desired outcome. Their jewelry serves as a tool to help you tap into your inner power and manifest your dreams. They believe that people gravitate towards the gemstones and crystals they currently need in their lives; ones needed to create balance within their own spiritual, mental and physical lives. Juil’s current favorite: the grounding anklet of course. It’s the perfect way to stay grounded - even when you have to take off your Juil’s!
d. TumericALIVE’s journey began backpacking in Hawaii. They discovered the life-changing and healing power of raw, organic Tumeric. It started in a basement of Manhattan’s Trinity Church on the corner of 9th and B, where TumericALIVE’s team began hand-crafting each precious bottle with only the finest ingredients. The response has been profound, and their growth from these humble roots has been organic and electric ever since! Why we love them? They work hand in hand with the family owned and operated organic Hawaiian turmeric farms. It’s no lie that TumericALIVE serves up only the highest quality organic ingredients – each serving is packed with 15g of fresh, cold pressed volcanic organic turmeric! Yum! Give your body what it deserves!
e. Well, to put it simply, studies have shown that maintaining a direct connection between your body and the Earth’s surface can be beneficial to your health. Wearing Juil’s (especially these cute little Dalli’s in pewter) allows for that connection.
