My early memories involve us bumping into one another at the tents of NY Fashion Week, tech events and anything glam and amazing. We would tell our life stories in a matter of minutes or maybe a few hours! To know her is to be drawn to her and recently I love that we have been able to hang out more! If you heard my radio interview with her earlier this year then you know that Shoshi (Yolanda Shoshana) is the Modern Day Courtesan and Luscious Lifestyle Diva! She teaches us how to still retain our natural sexiness and how to initiate it in a world where many times our focuses are all over the place. Bi weekly she will share her sexy insights with us and I'm so happy that she is on board! In keeping with her name, her segments are Keeping it Luscious! Last time she let us know about how to keep it sensual. Today she shares with us the importance of a life mantra.
A part of keeping it luscious is taking care of the spirit. Being a woman on the go, sometimes we neglect slowing down to take a deep breathe and take it all in. The next thing we know there is drama, chaos, and confusion in your lives.
My solution for this is Luscious Life mantras. A mantra can be a sound, one word, or short sentence used for creating transformation. Luscious Life mantras are simple sayings that get you centered and remind you that you are a fabulous and fierce woman who can do anything!
Maybe you won’t’ use a mantra every day, but think of mantras as a sensual tool to put into your bag of tricks. I think they are sensual because they are powerful positive affirmations, felt all over your body. Your creative juices will be flowing, you will have a spring in your step, and you will be feeling amazing inside which makes you look luscious on the outside.
Whenever I am having a bumpy day or something isn’t going my way, I say a mantra, before I know it I am back in it to win it. Here are a few for of my favorites, maybe you will be inspired to write your own.
1) “I am unlimited”- this is one of my favorite mantras, it is short and to the point. I meditate on this a lot. I think I actually read this on Yogi tea bag (they have great quotes). You are unlimited. There is nothing you can’t do, so be sure to remind yourself of this great fact whenever you need to.
2) “I will dumps the chumps, and allow real love to be in my life”- this mantra is for the single girl and the woman in a relationship with the wrong person. Why waste your time on someone who you know is not the one, especially when finding a life partner is your goal. Say this consistently when you know it is not a good relationship, don’t settle. Before you know it no clowns will be around and you will be snuggled up next to the person of your dreams.
3) “I will listen to myself and not to them, because I am in it to win it” -There will always be haters and naysayers
who shoot down your goals. Trust your instinct, your gut, your intuition or whatever name you choose to call it. That inner voice that talks to you when you are making a big decision in your life is your BFF. Successful people are good at listening to that voice; normally they go against other people’s advice. Your inner voice is a part of the universe tapping you on the back letting you know that you are on to something. Own your inner voice, it will become like second nature and you will stop second guessing yourself.
4) "I am the master of my own universe”- This mantra is reminder that nothing is happening to you, it is happening because of you. Work with the universe to get what you want. What you think about you bring about. You attract who and what comes into your life. If you are not getting what you desire, begin to change your thoughts. Focus on abundance and not on lack!
