What would you be up to this National Hat Day?
Why and how to celebrate it?
If ever you’re wondering about these things, I’m here to share some enlightenment with you.
Flashback to 3,000 BC, the first hat appeared on a mural of a tomb in Thebes. A man on the mural wore a straw hat.
Since then hats are worn for different reasons – protection, social status and religious rites.
Hats have evolved as part of fashion and self-expression.
The National Hat Day has become a holiday every January 15.
No one knows who started this holiday for hats. Even so, I still love National Hat Day anyway.
Why wouldn’t I? I love hats! I’m a hat person (No pun-intended). Wearing comfy, cute and stylish hats make me happy.
Are you a hat-lover too? Who’s with me? Raise your hats! Join me in this hat filled moment.
Here’s the deal, the National Hat Day is for wearing hats! So take out your fancy, cute, rare, weird or crazy hats out of the closet.
Wear them all throughout the day and have different hats for every selfie.
You can go as far as having a groupfie with all of your friends or loved ones wearing hats.
Maybe give hats as a gift or discover your hat style here.
Plot twist on a deeper level, wearing hats on National Hat Day means honoring and being grateful of our head and mind – our consciousness.
Since our head is where the Crown Chakra is, what perfect way to celebrate National Hat day than to activate, balance and cleanse it.
Chakra is a center of swirling energy or energy wheel in our body.
It is the center of bodily process, thoughts and emotions.
The Crown Chakra is the energy center for happiness, trust, positivity, creativity or inspiration, inner self, devotion and Divine connection.
In celebration of National Hat Day, these steps are to activate, balance and cleanse your Crown Chakra:
1.Put your Mozart on.
Listen to Classical music by Mozart. Studies proved that classical music increases intelligence and creativity.
Under a powerful microscope or tool, frozen water exposed to such genre turned into snowflake like structures.
True enough, I wrote more poetry and finished writing my first Fantasy novel while Mozart’s music played in the background.
Listening to his classical pieces helps to activate your Crown Chakra with creative inspiration.
2. Live out your Artsy-ness.
Do some coloring or painting. You can also look at beautiful masterpieces in an Art Gallery or Art website.
This activates your Crown Chakra by increasing creativity and happiness.
3. Bookworm your way to inspiration and self development.
Read books like “The Secret,” “The Magic,” and “The Power” (Rhonda Byrnes), “ChickenSoup for the Soul” (Jack Canfield), The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Stephen Covey) and “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” (T.Harv Eker).
This will activate your Crown Chakra with wisdom.
4. Splash in some Violet in your Style.
Wear a violet hat, clothes or shoes. This is the color of the Crown Chakra. Wearing violet helps in activating and balancing it.
5. Clear out with Crystals.
Close your eyes and hold an amethyst or clear quartz crystal. Listen and follow through a Chakra cleansing guided meditation.
Now that you have your awesome hat on and your Crown Chakra in a blissful state with these steps, you’ll be more guided with your intuition, ideas, wisdom and creative inspiration.
Feel at peace that the Universe is always supporting you in your journey to happiness, love, health and abundance.
Choose your thoughts well. Be mindful to only think and feel gratitude, happiness and love.
The Universe will give more of these to you.
