"God Is A Woman": An Empowering And Disruptive Theory

"God Is A Woman": An Empowering And Disruptive Theory

Religion has played a significant role in shaping human society and culture, and for many people, it provides a sense of purpose and meaning in life. However, traditional religious views have been criticized for being exclusive and limiting, particularly when it comes to gender roles and equality. The idea of God being a Woman challenges these traditional views and offers a more inclusive and empowering perspective.


Throughout history, many cultures have worshipped goddesses as their primary deities, such as Isis in ancient Egypt and Athena in ancient Greece. However, in most major world religions, including Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, God is generally referred to as a male figure. This traditional view has been reinforced by centuries of religious teachings, literature, and artwork.

But what if God were a woman? The theory of a female God challenges the traditional view and emphasizes the nurturing and compassionate qualities of the feminine archetype. Proponents of the theory argue that a female God would better embody these qualities and could serve as a positive role model for women and girls.

The concept of a female God is often associated with the idea of the divine feminine, which represents the creative, intuitive, and nurturing aspects of the universe. This archetype has been revered in many ancient cultures and is gaining popularity in modern times as a way to balance the masculine-dominated culture of the modern world.

Critics of the theory argue that the idea of a female God goes against traditional religious teachings and is not supported by religious texts. They also argue that the gender of God is not a significant issue, as God is considered to be beyond human gender and form. However, proponents of the God is a Woman theory argue that the representation of God as a male figure has contributed to the marginalization and oppression of women throughout history.

The concept of God as a woman is not a new idea, but it is gaining momentum as part of the broader movement towards gender equality and inclusivity. It offers a fresh perspective on the traditional view of God and challenges us to rethink our assumptions about gender roles and spirituality.

In conclusion, the theory of God as a woman is a complex and controversial topic that continues to be debated within religious and theological circles. It challenges the traditional view of God as a male figure and offers a more inclusive and empowering perspective. Regardless of whether we accept this theory or not, it is an important conversation to have as we strive towards a more equitable and just society.

5 Ways to Maintain Self-Awareness: Tips for Personal Growth

5 Ways to Maintain Self-Awareness: Tips for Personal Growth


Self-awareness is a crucial aspect of personal growth and development. It involves having a clear understanding of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, as well as how they impact yourself and others. Maintaining self-awareness is an ongoing practice that requires intentional effort and attention. In this article, we’ll share some tips on how to maintain self-awareness and cultivate personal growth.


  1. Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present and aware of your thoughts, feelings, and surroundings. By practicing mindfulness regularly, you can become more aware of your thoughts and emotions, which can help you make more conscious decisions. Mindfulness can be practiced through various techniques, such as meditation, deep breathing, or simply paying attention to your senses. Set aside a few minutes each day to practice mindfulness and observe your thoughts and feelings without judgment.


  1. Keep a Journal

Writing down your thoughts and feelings can help you become more aware of them. Keeping a journal is a great way to reflect on your experiences and gain insights into your thought patterns and emotions. Make it a habit to write in a journal daily, even if it's just for a few minutes. Write down your thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and reflect on how they relate to your goals and values.

  1. Get Feedback

Ask for feedback from friends, family, or colleagues on how you come across to others. This can help you become more aware of your strengths and weaknesses. Be open to constructive criticism and use it as an opportunity to learn and grow. When receiving feedback, ask clarifying questions to gain a deeper understanding of the feedback and how you can apply it to improve yourself.


  1. Reflect on Your Actions

Take time to reflect on your actions and decisions. Ask yourself why you made a particular choice and how it affected you and others. Reflect on the outcomes of your actions and whether they aligned with your values and goals. Use this reflection to identify areas where you can improve and make better choices in the future.

  1. Take Personality Tests

Taking personality tests like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) or the Enneagram can help you become more aware of your personality traits and how they impact your behavior. These tests can provide insights into your strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies. However, it's important to remember that personality tests are not definitive and should be used as a tool for self-reflection and growth rather than a definitive answer to who you are.

Ultimately, maintaining self-awareness is an ongoing practice that requires intentional effort and attention. By practicing mindfulness, keeping a journal, seeking feedback, reflecting on your actions, and taking personality tests, you can become more self-aware and cultivate personal growth. Remember, self-awareness is a journey, not a destination. It takes practice and patience to develop and maintain self-awareness, but the rewards are worth it!

See Which Fashion Icon Pulled Up to Brooklyn Circus x The GAP Launch Event

See Which Fashion Icon Pulled Up to Brooklyn Circus x The GAP Launch Event

  Everyone loves a good collab right? When big corporations take an interest in smaller more niche brands we are usually torn; watching with half excitement half with dred. The best collaborations are when both brands are seen equally and have a dope story to tell.


  We had the pleasure of being invited to the launch event of one of those equally yoked collabs: Brooklyn Circus and GAP!

  Black creators, designers, writers, and artists all pulled up to Dumbo House in BK to experience a brand that has constantly inspired us over the years and the event did not disappoint! We listened to an amazing convo where Ouigi Theodore talked about coming from Haiti to America and growing to embody both countries in his style and perspective. He also talked about his club promoting days, designing flyers and knowing when to walk away when something no longer “feels good”. We all left with some gems.


  Fashion and Harlem icon Dapper Dan was in the building showing love too! We know Dapper Dan had an earlier collab with GAP so it felt like we all got to witness a passing of the torch in real life. He was happy and excited to hear about The Aware Brand and told us that he loves how black men are stepping up and pushing the message of self awareness and self love. What a moment!

  Seeing this collab come to life is inspiring for us as we continue to launch new collections in partnership with Foot Locker. It also reminds us that you never know who’s watching and to stay the course and see the vision through to the end.


To learn more and shop the collab check out the BKc’s website!

Nike Showed Us How They Are Breaking Into Web3 With dotSwoosh

  Our people over at Black Brooklyn invited us to a dotSwoosh event at WOODstack on Flatbush Ave to be some of the first people to get information on how Nike is rolling out their Web3 initiatives. It was a very informative session with the focus being around co-creation, community, and making sure up and coming artists are paid for their contributions to sneaker and streetwear culture.


  Masooma and Nik did a great job facilitating the conversation, the audience had a lot of questions and concerns about how Nike intends to use Web3. The potential with Web3 is limitless and being at the event reminded us of the many ways we can integrate this technology into our business as well as where the opportunities are for partnerships and collabs.

  Here’s a few notes we took on how Nike plans to move going forward in this new space. If you see something that aligns with you, hit em up!


  1. Signature collections
  2. Virtual drops
  3. Athletes, creators, and collections + storefronts

  As we go more and more into this unchartered territory it is critical to remember that autonomy and ownership are of the highest importance. When working with brands make sure you do your homework and ask questions! Shout to Nike for giving us an inside glimpse of their Web3 plans and for being intentional about working with all the dope creators that make streetwear and sneaker culture what it is!

Black History Month Inspired Streetwear Collection!

Black History Month Inspired Streetwear Collection!

Legacy is super important to us at The Aware Brand. No other time of the year is the legacy of black people on display more than Black History Month. Even though black history is World and American history we are taking this month to give the tribe something special: our newest campaign all about being Black and Aware!


The main design is the I AM hoodie which draws inspiration from the Memphis Sanitation Workers Strike of 1968. Our memories as well as civil rights documents are forever imprinted with the famous I AM A MAN signs that the sanitation workers wore during the strike. Those signs are a statement to the world that the men knew their worth and wouldn’t settle for anything less. Similarly, our hoodies are a statement to whoever reads them that the person wearing it is an aware human, and is aligned with the legacy of historical movements that were dedicated to liberating the minds and bodies of black people across the world. 

Show the world that you are aligned with the legacy of Black and Aware Humans that have always fought to push society and the world forward! Self awareness is the only starting point to truly transforming our lives. Click the link below to shop our capsule collection! Stay aware!

Here's How Tuskegee Is Showing All HBCUs Skegee Is Aware 👁

Here's How Tuskegee Is Showing All HBCUs Skegee Is Aware 👁

For the last stop on our HBCU tour we had to bring it home to Mother Tuskegee!


With 2 out of 3 of our leadership team being Tuskegee graduates we knew it would be a homecoming to remember. And it was!


The team met up in ATL and hit the Alumni party at The Bank to kick off the festivities. The energy was high and you could feel it as soon as you got in the parking lot. Everyone was excited to see each other and catch a vibe inside. We partied all night even though we knew we would pay for it in the morning. We aren’t as young as we used to be!


The next morning we hit the road to Tuskegee Alabama and after a smooth ride we pulled up on campus and set up on the Ave. We found a spot right in the center of the Ave, it was almost like it was waiting for us. After a couple of minutes we were set up and ready to get it going. The tent was super active and before the day was done we sold out of our exclusive Tuskegee is Aware tee! The tee was a hit not only with the younger crowd but also the older folks too!



Day 2 we found a not so secure spot on the lawn of Logan Hall. A few vendors told us that the fire department wanted the area clear but we trusted the divine guidance of the whole trip and decided to take a chance and set up shop (111 energy).  Not only did we get the okay to stay there, it ended up being the perfect spot for everyone to see us! So many people came to our tent looking for the exclusive TU tee, and were disappointed it was sold out but joined our emailing list for the restock update (available now!!)  It was so dope to connect with old friends as well as add new people to the tribe. There was so much going on from the music to the vendors to the band and crowd that it was almost too much to take in at once. Now that the homecoming numbers are coming in you can see that TU had one of the best homecomings this year. It was one for the books! 

Look through some of these pics to get a feel of the weekend. Official content is live on our IG page!

What is Culturecon?  Tap in for The Aware Brand's Culturecon Experience! 👁

Last weekend we hit CultureCon in NYC and it was a vibe!


For those of you who don’t know, CultureCon has been an amazing gathering in Brooklyn of black creatives, thinkers and business owners for the past few years. It serves as a homecoming of sorts for a lot of us who are working to intentionally shape this culture that we love and hold dear. This year was the biggest so far and they did not disappoint!


From the various panels, to the activations, food trucks and vendors, everything was ultra black and it felt inspiring and empowering.


Drew and Omar drove from Detroit to NYC, we had to make sure our collective presence was felt; and it was! We got a lot of love on the brand and the work we are doing. We saw a lot of friends and met some dope new people too. We think it’s safe to say CULTURECON IS AWARE👁


If you are a creative in the New York area make sure you tap in next year! You’ll definitely see us there.

Streetwear in Atlanta Will Never Be the Same! 👁

Streetwear in Atlanta Will Never Be the Same!  👁




It’s has been an eventful August in Atlanta! This city has a special place in the heart of the brand and August solidified that even more for us.


To give some context, ATL was home for our CEO Drew Sanders for 8 years. They were the first city to really be exposed to the brand back in 2017. Atlanta was the home of our first photoshoot, first printer, embroider etc, so it’s only right that we brought it back to the 404 for some pop ups this month.


Everything started with Aware Brand being invited by Foot Locker to attend investfest and meet the homegrown brands in the A. The love and energy was real! We were greeted with open arms and excitement about what the future can possibly hold. Y’all stay tuned!


Our official pop up was the following weekend at black owned brewery Atlantucky. Shout to the Nappy Roots for lending us their amazing space to pop up in! We released our exclusive Atlanta is Aware tee there and the people saw it online during promo and pulled up on us in real life to get it. After shopping and listening to a fireside chat with the founders the audience had the opportunity to ask questions and they asked some really insightful and dope questions! This let us know that our tribe in ATL really rock with us and are engaged and tuned in with the brand.



We headed to APT4B for a post pop up celebration and were welcomed beautifully by the staff there. The energy was high, food was amazing. We danced laughed and had a great time. We even sold some merch to the bartenders! Everything was working for our benefit in a divinely aligned way.


It’s only right we kept the vibes going! This past weekend we popped up for two days at the popular AEBL Championship Basketball games.

Again, our main attraction was the ATL city tees and the tribe did not disappoint. If you follow us on Instagram you saw how many people were excited to show support and rock the tee. Big shout to Jah Rawlings for allowing us to use the space to activate! Shout to all the ATLiens who pulled up, shared the flyers, and showed us love. We appreciate it! For anyone who missed getting the tees, they are available online now!

It’s definitely safe to say ATLANTA IS AWARE👁
