dressing your truth

If you have been following this little blog of mine for any length of time, you have probably noticed that I, at times, refer to a program called Dressing Your Truth by Carol Tuttle.  What is Dressing Your Truth, and what is living true to my nature, you ask?  I will share with you a little of what I have learned on my journey so far.

I have a great affinity for all things energy.  I work with vibrational healing modalities every day and when the book titled, It’s Just My Nature!, by Carol Tuttle was brought to my attention,  I was intrigued. Here was a book that promised to enlighten me as to my own natural energetic expression.  The content in this book spoke volumes to me and did not disappoint.  It answered a lot of questions I had about myself, and reassured me that my unique expression was to be celebrated.  Understanding my dominant energy type has helped me express myself more authentically.  Below, is an excerpt from Carol Tuttle’s Energy Profiling website.

Energy Profiling® is a unique profiling system that not only assesses personality traits, but also your behavior, thought and feeling processes, body language and physical characteristics to reveal the true you.

Energy Profiling® is a simple system that categorizes people into one of four groups. This simple reference system speaks volumes once you understand your Type. Carol’s system has four types: Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, and Type 4.

Energy Profiling® is based on the scientific principle that the four elements of our DNA create our human nature and our natural expressions. The Four Types come from the four elements that we are each created from: nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. Carol has discovered that each of these elements expresses a unique and candid movement that is also expressed in all of nature and all of human nature. We have all four elements in us; so we naturally have all four expressions in us–yet we all lead with a dominant expression of one of the four elements that is represented by each Type.

Once you have learned the system and the volumes of information that explain each Type, knowing your dominant Type will give you great insight on how to live true to your self, which naturally brings more harmony, success, abundance, and prosperity into your life and all of your relationships.

The beauty of Energy Profiling® is that it does not just look at a person’s personality, it also includes behavior tendencies, thought and feeling processes, body language, and physical features. It is a simple system taught in a concise way that is easy to learn and apply.

What makes Energy Profiling® one of the most accurate assessment tools is it’s reference to not only personality traits, but to our unique expression in body language and physical features. Because personality can be altered, adapted, and shamed, many people are not living true to their dominant expression in all areas of life. Consider the possibility that the way you doodle and your facial features may say more about who you really are than your personality!

After determining my energy type, {I’m a type one with a secondary type four}, I found myself wanting to express my personal style more authentically. Update I also wanted to make better choices when it came to fabric and pattern purchases. I registered for the Dressing Your Truth program in February of 2012, approximately six months after reading It’s Just My Nature.  One of the biggest challenges I faced when getting back into sewing was all the possibilities. Almost every fabric in the store looked enticing to me. I loved them all! In addition, as an avid thrifter, I frequently came home from thrift stores with lovely fabrics bought at bargain basement prices . Why was it, that after sewing a garment out of fabric that I loved…I sometimes felt underwhelmed or even downright uncomfortable?  It turns out that I was purchasing fabrics and patterns that did not match my unique energy type.  I was pretty good with colour, already intuiting that some colours were a better vibrational match for myself; however, when it came to texture, design lines, and patterns…well I had no clue what was working and what wasn’t.  I am happy to say that after taking the DYT course, I am making better decisions when picking out fabric and sewing patterns. And, I am able to make those decisions faster. Yes, I do still get starry eyed from time to time…buying something beautiful because it’s 70% off and not because it suits me for example…but it’s a process and I’m definitely happier with 90% of my choices. Below is an excerpt from The Dressing Your Truth website that will give you a more complete idea of what the program offers.
