Manifesting with a Magic Hat
I was buying sandals at REI for an upcoming Maui beach trip when I ran across the floppy hat I’ve always wanted.
It was perfect in all ways.
Even though Russ said I should just buy one once we got there, I knew this was my hat.
I liked it so much I wore it on the way home from the store.
As soon as I put it on, I laughed out loud. I felt carefree, lighthearted and more fun.
This hat made me happier.
Could a hat really do that?
I know some women feel that way about shoes. There’s even a song about that, so why not a hat?
I wore my new floppy straw hat at home while Russ made dinner, and felt like I was already on vacation, living without a care in the world.
It occurred to me I may have a magic hat on my hands.
The next day when I texted Russ to say my pre-trip anxiety was kicking in (upset stomach, irritable mood, negative thoughts running rampant), he told me to put my hat on.
It worked like a charm.
I instantly felt better … more relaxed, more at ease, more allowing. This was indeed a magic hat.
I smiled when I packed that hat in my suitcase; I smiled as I wore it to the beach; I laughed as I caught it from the wind.
I took a picture of it, I liked it so much!
This hat and I had a good thing going.
I thought of Wayne Dyer’s hat on his PBS Wishes Fulfilled special. He said he got that hat in Paris and hasn’t taken it off since. Wayne knows about magic hats, too, it seems.
Which makes sense to me since hats can have such a powerful impact on our self-identity. Lots of clothing and jewelry items can do that for us, but hats especially.
Do you have a hat that helps you align to what you want?
If not, remember how this works: we’re looking to feel now how we would feel then (when you’re living what you want).
So whether you want more money, love, health or whatever – imagine how you’ll feel when you have it. Maybe that’s successful, peaceful, accomplished, powerful, free, rich, happy, etc. – that’s the vibration you’re looking for.
Next just intend to find the hat that activates that vibe for you.
It will be different for each of us, so I can’t post a chart that says fedoras for sexy, top hats for wealthy, cowboy hats for freedom, tiaras for loved & adored.
You may even find your magic thing isn’t a hat, but maybe a necklace, or lotion, or a tattoo even.
Whatever it is, juice up your alignment by wearing it whenever you need a boost or want a lift. The point is to let it pave the way to your good vibe.
This vibration management stuff is sometimes way easier than we make it out to be. Says the happy girl in the magic hat.
