What Does it Mean to be Spiritually Connected to Someone?

Candles, prayer, and meditation is one of the best way to heal spiritually.

I often get asked about spirituality and how to know if you are spiritually connected to someone.  To be honest, I have no idea. But I know from my own personal experience, a spiritual relationship is there to teach us a lesson. For me, this lesson had to do with my fear of abandonment and it goes back into my childhood.  It is a lesson I am learning to release, heal and let go.

To answer your question, a spiritual relationship is when two whole and balanced individuals coming together and completing each other in order to fulfill their life’s mission in serving humanity. It is the harmonizing of the Yin and Yang within them. The love they have for each other is unconditional and without any fears, hidden agendas, or secrets. This is a relationship that gives freely, shares freely, and loves freely without needing to question why.

When you have a spiritual connection with someone, your ego and public persona is put aside and you can be yourself and are not afraid to feel vulnerable around them because you know that they will protect you regardless.

When you spiritually connect with someone, it is beyond sharing interests, hobbies, material wealth, business, or such things. It is with them that you share deeper things— values, dreams, and a way of looking at the world through love and truth. They inspire you to grow, have closure with your past, heal your wounds, be your best self, and pursue your dream.  They are your complement and perfect equal.  You both are connected at the heart and soul level. Even when you don’t see them or hear from them, you still know that they are there and they are with you in spirit.  How do I know this? I just do. :)

I am always on the go, I love to seek out creative new ways to carry my essentials, which is why the GirlieGoGarter is one of my most popular products at tu-anh Boutique!  I have used the garters to carry my iPhone, my lip gloss, cash, ID, and car key when I am out dancing, working out, running errands, and they are also fit your passport when traveling, too! There’s almost nothing I can’t carry discreetly in my favorite new accessory. My favorite is the black with Rhinestones. And it stays put no matter what you do!  For you young goddesses out there, this is the perfect accessory for Prom or for your graduation.

I personally want to invite you to stop by my Goddess Sanctuary in Old Town for a visit and try one on for yourself. Until next time.



We carry all the colors in sizes Small, Medium, and Large

Polish Your Space With Goodwill Treasures

Part of my life’s mission is not only to bring beauty, sensuality, love, and inspiration from around the world to those around me, but at the same time to be socially responsible while doing so.  One of the ways I give back to the community is by furnishing and decorating our goddess sanctuary with used furniture from Goodwill of Greater Washington.  Goodwill has been a part of my life since I was a teenager. Those were the days when my family did not have much money and resources and we had to be creative with what we had around us.

Now many of you will not necessarily consider a resale store as your first stop for furniture to decorate your home or work space, especially for a high-end boutique like ours. My team and I did a little polishing and a little refining on the pieces we found at the local Goodwill retail location in Annandale. Since opening, we have had so many compliments on the decor of our space and many actually asked about the pieces. They were shocked when we told them Goodwill was the source, especially the black vintage leather chair that we painted the trim white.  We nicknamed that chair “THE THRONE” since many of our male shoppers said they feel like a king sitting in that chair.

It is very important for me that I am always contributing back to society and inspiring those around me. That is what Polished by tu-anh is about.

The pieces were in relatively good condition. They just needed the tu-anh touch to come to life and harmonize with the feminine, luxurious and sensual essence of our goddess sanctuary.

Come see these pieces for yourself at 113 South Washington Street in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. We are there Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11:00am-7:00pm. Perhaps later this year, we may sell these pieces and go back to Goodwill for more pieces to polish and refine :)
