Meet the Warriors behind our new campaign. This fall, we called on real-life leaders who aren’t afraid to go within to let their light out. From the symbolic pieces they wear to the powerful stories they tell, see why these spiritual trailblazers are redefining what it means to be a warrior.

______

Tell us who you are in a few words:

My name is Lindsay, but my Dad always called me LuLu. And I’d love it if you did too.

What does being a spiritual warrior mean to you?

The first thing that comes to mind is one of my favorite yoga sequences. It’s a sequence that incorporates a balance of every yoga posture you need in one hour, and it gave me strength and confidence when I first starting teaching yoga. It still does actually. And it’s my go-to practice when I want to move, breathe and connect to myself without having to think about what’s coming next.

 

My next thought is love. A warrior for love and empowerment.  A warrior for the truth of who you are. A woman who lives by her own truth. A woman who looks within herself instead of outside of herself, and knows and trusts her own innate goodness and sees the beauty that is her birthright. A woman who is standing in the presence of her power, and resides in her wholeness.

She’s a warrior for the truth and values self-acceptance over society’s. My mother taught me this, she was my first spiritual teacher. 

My mother invited me to make my own decisions surrounding faith and essentially, “what I want to be when I grow up”. She and my father trusted me so deeply with this responsibility, and I didn’t take that lightly. It allowed me to cultivate my own trust in myself, and to nurture what it feels like to live from the heart. To live a life guided by its wisdom, while incorporating the hard work and discipline it takes in order to do something that rebellious. 

“I was blessed to be told that I could do anything when I grew up.”

 

Tell us about a moment that changed the course of your life.

My father’s death, 10 years ago.  I have a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes now [talking about this]. His sickness and passing shook my world to its absolute core.  It woke me up when I didn’t even know I was asleep. It lit a fire inside my soul and completely broke my heart. It became my point of no return and lit my passion for life on fire. There was no “kind of” living after that. There was just living. 

It was my – “I have to get happy now, today, or never”. It became the reason I fell so firmly into my path of healing and helping others to heal. And there was such a passion and motivation within me after that to find the lesson in such a deep heartbreak. I will find every layer of silver lining in that cloud and I will use it to help others do the same. The death of my father took me so far from myself. And It was through the trust in my heart, in God, and in my path that I have finally returned to her. To LuLu, his girl. It reignited the fire I was born with, and I was able to find myself all over again.

What gives you the courage to keep going?

Faith. Plain and simple. 

I am an eternal optimist, an empath, and deeply intuitive human here to do some serious good in this world.  I just will not stop seeking until I find the light, the lesson, and the pearl in every obstacle; in every oyster. It’s the most fulfilling job there is, to help others discover the truth of themselves, and heal every obstacle we’ve built against it. 

Which fall piece speaks to you most and why?

The Yellow Tiger Cuff: It’s simple, yet elegant and completely my style. I especially love the yellow details! It makes me feel inspired, energized, and fierce. I would definitely wear this when I needed an extra dose of each!

What’s your favorite symbol and why? Why would you wear this product?

The Star and Moon Ring: I feel a triumph in this ring. To me, it represents a union of opposites — which is life! The beautiful thing that I’ve learned about life is that we are capable of feeling BIG things: duality, darkness, and light. And that as a healer, I try to hold space for both to exist, equally. That I can feel many things and I don’t have to shame one and celebrate the other — I can honor both and see the lesson in both.

Guardian Angel Ring: It reminds me most of my grandmother. She was myfirst guardian angel and the first of many family members I lost due to illness. I was 11, and I remember everything so vividly. It reminds me that there is so much unseen to the naked eye. And when I look at this ring, I remember my own angel wings. My innate wisdom and divinity, and that of each one of us here.

What three words would you use to describe our products?

Classic, Playful and Elegant.
