I am feeling so full. It’s the Tuesday after a magical birthday weekend. A weekend filled with so much love, bliss and gratitude. My heart is full because this year on my birthday I switched up my normal routine and I am so glad that I did. You see, I usually am traveling, exploring and soaking up the sun on some private island somewhere around the globe at this time of year. It's my favorite time of year!
I was invited to be a part of a wonderful all women's event. ! I am honored to have offered a Sacred Healing Session to hundreds of women that was all about Self Love & Self Healing. The magic took place at the 5th annual Soiree In The Cities Girls Night Out . This event hosted by Ebony Edwards is a fabulous event that invites women from all over the world to gather as they sip, shop, mingle while supporting and honoring one another. What better way to celebrate my birthday one would say?
It was at this event where I Pre-launched "27 Days To Flawless The Ultimate Glow Guide" which I can not wait to get in your hands. I shared complimentary samples of exclusive recipes from my up and coming new book (scheduled for release really soon). The "Immaculate Israeli Salad" and the "Bountiful Birthday Punch" was a much loved sample. I introduced the "27 Days To Flawless Glow Collection" an all natural skin hydrating system which is the secret to my flawless skin. I also introduced the online exclusive programs to come.
There were so many beautiful Goddesses that I was so honored to connect with at this fabulous event. We gathered In a sacred space where I shared part of my Journey, we laughed, took deep breaths, practiced presence, and left our worries behind to escape to an island of peace with no cell phone reception as we connected. While each session was a brief introduction of whats to come in the near future, it was just enough time to make this gathering special and purposeful. I was so moved hearing so many stories, it was great to meet in person many of my instagram tribe. It was the best celebration one could ask for.
How wonderful was this to celebrate not only my birth date but the birth of whats to come with the Flawless By Siojo Brand as a whole?
It is my hope that you take some of these Flawless Lifestyle tips home with you and add it to your life with love and gratitude to enjoy but first get into the atmosphere by checking out a few of the captured moments. The energy was amazing during and after the sacred woman session. So much love in one room!

Sacred Woman Soiree Recap
Setting intentions upon rising in the morning add more intention to your day by rising in love and gratitude. Affirming that your day is going to be a great day!
2. Checking in
Checking in with your self, practice true awareness by paying close attention to your emotions, thoughts and feelings. If something or some one makes you feel not so good switch that feeling around. Play some good music, find something to laugh at, dance hey twirl if you have to. Let it go most importantly.
Breathing slowly and completely throughout 5 repetitions "in through the nose and out through the nose slowly and steadily" This takes very little time out of your day and will help you healthy mental clarity, practice presence, and oxygenating the cells of the body while raising your mood. Keep consciously breathing.
Hydration is the key to success it really is. Drinking half of your body weight in ounces on the daily will keep you from craving junk food, hydrate your skin, increase circulation while elevating your mood while aiding in digestion and elimination. Don't you feel successful already? Drink your water Goddess.
Journaling is a very powerful and effective process of having a healthy dialogue with a non judgemental piece of paper while managing to release lots of energy through the active meditative art of writing. Grab a journal and make it your best friend. I love writing down my goals & aspirations and making them real by writing. I am able to keep them alive by referring back often. There is something magical about real ink and real paper. What's written on paper, it becomes real. I find myself at times retreating inward with myself self and writing during the most stressful moments it helps me tremendously. Try it!
Sacred bathing is key to being a Goddess on the glow. If your restricted from bathing for any reason fret not, there are other ways to add to the atmosphere and enjoy your time bathing/showering. I find that taking a moment to create bathing rituals keeps me centered. I love adding beautiful music, essential oils and candle light to my bathing time and literally taking my good old time to love all up on my self. To follow, I enjoy anointing my body with lovely oils as I speak love all over myself. This is a great way to awaken your Divine Feminine Energy. Make it an experience to enjoy often. See my blog post on Sacred bathing you will be happy you did.
7. Healthy Self Talk
Talking to your self is the best way to redirect your energy while becoming your own greatest source of inspiration. The conversations you have with your self can make or break your entire life experience. Practice being kind to yourself in your self dialogue and thoughts, welcome compliments from others by simply saying thank you with no rebuttal. Tell your self that you are amazing and capable practice kind self talk daily! If you find that your being hard on your self, shift it and focus on good feeling thoughts and conversation. Don't worry it takes practice but the more you talk kindly to yourself the better you will be and the kinder people will be to you. Talk to yourself often, its the best person to have a conversation with.
Invite love into your heart by placing your left hand over your heart and with your eyes closed Repeat this mantra often "I AM LOVE" I AM OPEN TO LOVE" I LOVE MYSELF" I AM LOVED". See it feels good to know that you are love. Love is the highest vibration known to man and all that we need is love. It starts with you. Add love to everything that you do and be open to receiving and experiencing more love in your life.
9. Conscious Eating
Conscious eating is one of the most important things to practice as food has immediate affects on the mind body and spirit. Eating fruit during the first half of the day before 3pm, Enjoying rainbow salads and healthy choices will keep you glowing and going. Eat to live, eat to self heal, eat to raise your mood an increase your longevity.

10. Escape to Nature & Raise Your Vibration
When all else fails escape into nature. When my vibration is off and I know I need to raise my energy, my mood,shift my perspective, I make it a non negotiable habit to stop drop and roll into the arms of Mother Nature. This is a must to keep my self on my "high flying disk" by going out in nature, breathing, quieting my thoughts, connecting with myself and re focusing my energy. I love taking "Flawless Tonics" for instant gratification I will share one of my favorite recipes below. Nature is the greatest medicine enjoy it often.
