Wearing Wisdom: How Clothing Choice Reflects Inner Growth


How Clothing Choice Reflects Inner Growth

Is choosing what to wear a simple act of visual expression?

Or, taking it one step further, can fashion leap beyond colour and fabric and transcend physical form?

#WearingWisdom is about doing exactly that. That’s also what Lifted Limited’s collection does, by weaving into your garment a timeless reminder of humanity, and what it means to take part in a 3D world.

You don’t want to miss it. Details of how to order at the bottom of this article (it’s as easy as hitting “buy” on that cap, bag or pair joggers you’re ogling, passing the payment page and drumming your fingers on your table until the arrival date.

Back to clothes and ascendance; I’ll start with this: we are all in pursuit, hopefully, of experiencing reality beyond the material.

It’s like this: we dress not to impress, but to express. To express the divine, the unspoken, and all too often unsaid.

We communicate the noncommunicable and reality; thought; feelings; and take positions even with the assistance of our fabric.

Sentiments, which can be cultural in nature, determined in each individual – let us say, individually. No?.

As individuals vary in their values, so too do their choices of wardrobe. It’s a good place to leave this intro.

Speaking of our inner evolution, what we wear can be a testament to our journey towards wisdom and self-discovery. In this article, we will delve into the profound connection between clothing choices and personal growth, exploring how Lifted Limited's alternative streetwear collection acts as a bridge between the outer world and our inner transformation.

Dressing as a Reflection of Inner Evolution:

Clothing is more than a superficial layer; it's a medium that tells the story of our inner growth. At least in our case. Shit. As chimpanzees and hybrid gorillas. #AdaBandarHooMehBhi 

Like brushstrokes on a canvas, our clothing choices form a visual narrative that depicts our journey towards wisdom. Each piece we select isn't just fabric – it's a conscious choice of appearance that echoes our evolution, which is clearly not an appearance. At all. As we traverse the path of wisdom, our attire evolves alongside us, becoming a mirror that reflects internal shifts – and newfound understanding.

The Symbolic Language of Clothing:

Lifted Limited's designs employ a unique lexicon—clouds, ascendance, unity, universal consciousness—symbols that echo the inner transformation of wearers. The brand's collection, incorporating far from conventional spiritual themes, leverages elements like clouds that may evoke the sacrament of marijuana smoke or DMT smoke in cultures like Rastafarianism and Hinduism, and reflects holy traditions prevalent still in South America – and beyond.

Ascendance and universal consciousness become motifs. They are mirroring the soul's yearning for growth and connection. 

This symbolic language inherent in the collection, bridges spirituality and the notion of “cultural resonance”. It brings newfound insight into the notion of conscious fashion. In our work, we were creating a canvas that embodies both individual journeys and shared human experiences.

Embodiment of Values and Beliefs:

Every clothing choice that we make, every single one, carries with it the weight of our values and beliefs. Lifted Limited's alternative streetwear collection, adorned with elements like clouds and quotations depicting the verbal nature of species’ future “ascendance”, allows wearers to visually articulate their spiritual voyage. 

As our wisdom deepens through meditation, self-reflection, and cultural exploration, our clothing becomes an embodiment of our evolving aspirations — such as these very same things.

A cloud, for example. It is symbolizes, for better or worse, sacred rituals and higher states of awareness, becoming a testament to our dedication to the path of wisdom and personal growth.

Ascendance and universal consciousness reflect the soul's journey for elevation and connection, communicating here our inner transformation to the world in what we wear.

Mindful Wardrobe Curation:

Wardrobe choices become an intimate practice of mindfulness as our wisdom matures, then.

Lifted Limited's collection, featuring its aforementioned themes, offers a unique canvas for this mindful curation. 

Each piece carries its own energy and intention, inviting us to connect with its essence and its alignment with our journey. 

Thoughtful selection transforms the act of dressing into a meditative experience as well, turning each garment into an embodiment of our growth and values. 

Thus, through this conscious curation, our attire metamorphoses from mere clothing, to a tangible representation of our inner wisdom and transformation as it continues each and every day.

From Ego to Essence:

As our wisdom blossoms, clothing choices shift from ego-driven to authentic expressions of self. 

Lifted Limited's alternative streetwear, encompassing the ideas encapsulated by the symbols we employ, merely encourages and infamizes this age-old transition, in a modern, dope context. 

Authenticity replaces the pursuit of trends for only external validation. 

Cloud imagery, nodding to sacred significance of psychedelic rituals in cultures worldwide, may signify a shift from ego-based desires to embracing heightened awareness and the Collective Consciousness. 

Designs of transformation, simplicity, loyalty to the arts, transcendence and notions depicting varying conceptions of universal consciousness, reflect our yearning for growth beyond superficial desires. 

Our clothing ceases to be a façade; it becomes an extension of the expression of our authentic waking selves, a testament to the wisdom we've accumulated along our short but sweet journey.


Clothing as an Extension of Identity:

Just as a painter conveys emotions through brushstrokes, individuals express evolving identities through clothing choices. 

Lifted Limited's alternative streetwear collection features elements that serve as an extension of inner narratives that are going on with us at all times.

Clouds connect to the everyday sacred in design – to spiritual and cultural contexts we mostly cannot verbalize in concept. 

Weaving threads of identity with the fabrics of personal transformation, our attire evolves from decorative to profound. What are we trying to mirror to the world? Well, our current awareness of self-awareness, of our own values, and of our aspirations – spiritually speaking, of course. 

So think of it this way: each garment is not just a wearable chapter of my unique journey—but of our struggles, our breakthroughs, and our evolution.

Navigating Inner Transformations Through Style:

Personal growth entails navigating uncharted territories within ourselves, and our style evolves in parallel. Clearly.

Lifted Limited's designs symbolize the transformative journey. As we have said.

Think of it like this: by sharing these experiences, wearers inspire others to embrace the evolving style as a companion to inner growth

Lifted’s imagery connects inner transformation with shared human experiences. As individuals traverse internal landscapes, they may become beacons of inspiration, guiding fellow seekers towards authentic self-expression. We will feature these as they come along.

The Role of Lifted Limited:

Central to this narrative stands Lifted Limited—a representative of the fusion of apparel/clothing, merchandise, accessories and other such nonsense, with notions of inner growth. Since 2015. Each piece is adorned with themes representing ascendance; and the collection encapsulates personal journeys — of wisdom, of transformation, of transcendence or ascension.

We don’t know. Do more Yoga. Or something.

Anyway. As wearers, we create a shared but low-key secret language that bridges personal evolution and collective consciousness. Lifted Limited's ethos—a blend of hip-hop sensibility, Eastern acumen, and the West’'s soul—represent the tapestry of shared experiences currently shaping individual growth in this day and age.

In choosing these pieces, wearers merge evolving selves with a canvas or collection of apparel, merchandise and other accessories that are actively embracing their journey—an emblem. Wisdom of choice, worn with pride.

As we journey towards wisdom individually, our clothing choices become an expressive vehicle, painting our inner transformation onto the canvas of daily life. Our shared experiences represent the collective consciousness, as it stands today.

Yeah, profound but true, yada yada, we are getting to the point. With our collection, we are encapsulating this journey, offering wearers a tangible medium to communicate their personal evolution, on a daily basis. From selecting garments that resonate with the values we share here, to embracing authentic expressions of self with duffel bags or candles, each purchase of a piece is a physical testament to the wisdom we've gained along the way. This is conscious fashion.
