Sailor Brinkley Cook is perhaps best known for following in the footsteps of her famous mother, supermodel Christie Brinkley, but the young model is also attempting to make a name for herself.
Sailor, 24, has launched a new company that sprang from her efforts to deal with anxiety, especially during the pandemic.
Speaking on Today with Hoda and Jenna Tuesday, the young entrepreneur described the impetus for her new company, Sacred + Divine.

‘Over the pandemic, I was dealing with probably the worst parts of my anxiety and my therapist told me, “just put your phone down and be completely aware and observant of your surroundings,” and I would do that and it created this mindful, very grounding moment for me throughout my day,’ she said.
She began to notice patterns during her strolls.
‘I started seeing these numbers, these repetitive numbers and I started learning about them, like 111 and 333 and 222, are angel numbers.’
The new company sells not only jewelry, but scented candles and room sprays featuring numbers one through five and seven through nine.
Help: ‘I know that everyone deals with something really hard in their life,’ Sailor admitted, ‘and we’re all going through a secret struggle… I hope it will help someone else who deals with similar issues’
Anxiety: The Dancing with the Stars alum has been open about her struggle with anxiety and body dysmorphia, which lead her to found her own company
Each repetitive number stands for a feeling or action such as ‘manifestation,’ ‘change,’ or ‘abundance.’
Sailor explained, ‘They really are these universal signs that give us a little bit of hope and I started seeing them everywhere, so it was like a beautiful moment for me of connection.’
‘These candles and these necklaces are sort of bringing in those mindful, grounding moments into your everyday life.’

The Dancing with the Stars alum has been open about her struggles with mental health issues, including anxiety and body dysmorphia, explaining, ‘I find that the more you speak about these scary things, the less scary they feel.’
‘I know that everyone deals with something really hard in their life,’ she continued, ‘and we’re all going through a secret struggle… I hope it will help someone else who deals with similar issues.’
When navigating new situations, the runway veteran often relies on her mom’s advice. ‘Her number one thing that she always told me to be was to be grateful and gracious.
