A sophisticated and feminine interpretation of classic men’s pajama sets. Made in super soft Pima cotton and modal, Bella is finished with touches of satin binding.
Who knew that something as simple as pajamas could be such an integral part of one’s healing when going through one of the most challenging times of one’s growth? Yes, these simple PJ’s were exactly that for me.
Almost five years ago to the day I made the very difficult, yet necessary, decision to separate from my husband. It was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made in my life. Yet I knew that in order to have a joyful life and any chance of a healed marriage, I had no choice but to leave. So I packed up my things, left my beautiful home of nearly 17 years in which I had raised my family, and set off on a journey to self that I never dreamt would occur.
Sitting in my feminine and cozy new nest, I realized I would be sleeping alone for the first time in over 20 years. Something told me that it was time to find some special new pajamas – to spoil myself a little and create a comforting cocoon from head to toe. So I headed out to the local Galleria to a specialty pajama store, seeking that one pair of perfect pajamas that would later became part of an amazing journey to self-love. The only pajamas left in my size were not only incredibly light, soft, and gentle to the touch, but were covered with the most beautiful lotus flowers. You see, my name, “Kai-len” in Japanese means “lotus flower”, which signifies transformation and healing in its most beautiful form: coming from the deepest, darkest place – the lotus grows in the muck of ponds yet produces the most amazing flower. This transformation is what my very life and business have been based upon throughout the years.
So I excitedly bought these pajamas, went back to my apartment, put them on, lit incense and a candle, turned off the lights, sat on the floor, looked out the window into the dark night sky, and cried, thanking God, myself, life, those who I’ve loved, and those who have loved me, including my husband, for the amazing awakening and opportunity for change that had clearly just begun.
What came of myself and my marriage after several months alone in my new apartment? Well, some of the most beautiful healing and awakening I’d ever experienced, starting with the chance to simply be with myself and to healthily love me. Today, I am back in my marriage with a sense of love and healing that never could have occurred, had I not taken this journey to a higher level of self-love, self-truth, and awareness that had been waiting for me lovingly all my life.
So what do these soft and cozy pajamas have to do with love? They were a sweet and necessary ingredient to building the uncompleted nest from my childhood so that as a woman I could finally fly.
