You Are What You Wear (Part 1)

You Are What You Wear (Part 1)

by Elaine Seiler, Guest Editor of Energy Medicine on

You are perhaps familiar with the expression, you are what you eat. But have you considered that you are also the clothes, jewelery, and accessories you choose? I am talking about your vibrations, the energy waves and particles that make up your unique signature vibration. You appear to be a solid form, dressed in your latest choice of fashionable evening clothing, snazzy business attire, or comfortable jeans and a T-shirt.  In actuality, you are not as solid as you appear. You are a cluster of moving molecules that express who you are energetically. Every choice of clothing and accessories contributes the totality of the vibrations that express who you are.

If you repeatedly choose heavy, dark fabrics, toned down colors, and little or no gemstones as accessories, the energetic pattern created by your choices will be slow and dense. If you choose light-weight fabrics, bright colors, sparkling jewelry, and gemstones of fast vibration, the image created by your presence will be totally different. I am well aware that in cities and in cold climates, you may tend to choose darker colors and heavier fabrics, but in today’s marketplace you still have many choices available to you and can pick a vibrant blue wool, rather than a sombre brown winter coat. The choice is yours.

You are a moving cluster of vibrations. Add your clothing to cover, encircle, and infuse your unique cluster of frequencies, and you naturally either embellish and enliven – or diminish and soften – the essential vibration that you are. Sometimes you may want to draw attention to yourself – know that brighter clothing and accessories will do that for you. Other times, you may prefer to recede into the background – likewise your choice of color, style, texture and accessories will support or hinder that process.

Perhaps you are wondering why I am writing about something so seemingly basic and obvious. I write about this from the perspective of vibrations, not from the perspective of what you are seeing with your eyes. I am referring to the unseen energetic frequencies that can only be sensed and felt with intuitive abilities… abilities that exist beyond the five physical senses.

Those frequencies affect your health, your sense of well-being, your relationships with all those around you, and the way you attract or do not attract strangers or friends. Awareness of these frequencies is key to your effective functioning in the new world into which the planet, and each of us, is evolving.

Plain rubbish. I thing it's just how we judge people, we thing "if she's wearing black, she must be sad", etc. And in our culture black clothes are the symbol of mourning but in Japan it's white.

Interesting and intriguing. One can have a kaleidoscope of colours, fabrics that shine and shimmer but in the end I wear what is most comfortable often forgoing a favourite colour if an item is cozy and comfy but only available in a grey or whatever. At home and outside it seems that dressing for comfort is more important these days than anything else.

Interesting, thank you. I do think that one's choice of clothing can help make the world a more pleasant place for others.

aim upset that these things are so importend to all the young ones waring a BRAND but not knowing how, where and under what kind of circumstanes it was made. I belive we should not put so much value on such unsinn( german)...

Marrianne B- thank you! I had hoped it came across the right way. There are a lot of ways to look at it & I agree that someone shouldn't neccessarily be judged on what one wears, but then, at same time, if one does not know someone, they don't have much to go on. I mean, a pretty girl is at a bar. A guy walks up to start a conversation. Does he have as much luck if he's dressed poorly OR if he's dressed well? There can also be a corelation b/t one's confidence & the way one's dressed. The way one presents one-self can be changed by the way they dress. I'm not saying any of it is neccessarily right, OR wrong, but it's also not really our fault for at least partly judging someone FOR the way they dress, to at least SOME extent.

Well it might be true somehow. It shows that we have lost our abilities to find the real values of people and we leave that judgement to pieces of clothing that are actually meaningless. By the way, someone cd be wearing very expensive jeans, tshirt, sandals, watch and every other jewelry stuff while another cd be wearing cheap executive dress; what to do in a situation like this??? What about someone dressed very fancy with bright colors but a very serious face and someone else with dark colors but with a big smile??? Hope that part 2 says more about this idea.
