How to get out of the drama in life and manifest the things that we really want? How to experience the best in our life? The information is there, we have all read about it, maybe hundreds of times. Here is my insights on how we can achieve it: By the awareness of every situation; By indulging into a deep level of mindfulness. It’s in the conscious alignment of the body, mind and soul. It’s in every cell of the body, within every breath and every thought kept active.
Remember that we experience life mostly by our senses. There is a rhythm of life. Our own rhythm. In my yoga class today I’ve acknowledged the power of my feet. Later on while gardening I’ve blessed my strong feet and acknowledged the power of my hands while pulling out the weeds. A soft wind started to blow smoothly and almost took my hat. In that moment of awareness, my metaphoric side of the brain connected the dots: the five elements in nature; the underlying transformations of Nature.
When we constantly flow in our own nature, Nature flows magically within us.
WATER. WOOD. FIRE. EARTH. METAL.
They are indispensable to the maintenance of all that is alive, so they are part of us, and in some way we reflect them in each area of life.
I wear these 5 hats every day:
- The Fire hat, while I’m with my lovely partner
- The Earth hat, while I’m with my wonderful children
- The Metal hat, while on my life mission
- The Water hat, while I’m with my supportive group of friends
- The Wood hat, while cooking and organizing the house
Here is the short story behind those 5 hats of the woman I became. It’s been a year since I took that leap of faith, and allowed myself to experience a new phase of life. RESILIENCE has been the key word in the farewell note to my corporate fellows. And, resilience indeed has been a great embodied lesson whereon I built an entire new portfolio of my professional area. In that spiral loop to the next level, I created the space to analyze every aspect of the woman I’ve seen in the mirror, every morning. Moreover, resilience assisted me alongside restoration to all the 5 pillions of my identity. Today I am a better wife; a more patience mother; more determined than ever contributor to the wellbeing of my fellow humans; a truly compassionate friend; and a dedicated housekeeper. I wear my hat collection with so much passion and commitment than ever before. Why? Because I deeply acknowledge that all this 5 roles define my vital energy.
#1 Fire generates earth (ashes)
#2 The metals appear in the Earth
#3 The metal (by condensation) leads to the appearance of water
#4 Water feeds wood
#5 Wood feeds fire
#1 hat, like a flame, spreads the heat and the light. Enhances my feminine nature. I feel playful and inspired while wearing this hat. It magically projects me to the beginning of our relationship. Do you remember when you really took the time to look deeply into your partner’s eyes? I DO. Are you creating the space to spend more time together, and open up more to a new level of communication based on gratitude? I DO.

#2 hat it’s the earthly hat of creativity. The Earth gives birth to all things. I wear this hat while gardening. It keeps me grounded, and therefore cultivates my patience. Since my children are the most exquisite teachers I have ever been blessed to have, even when I’m parenting, they teach me how: with love. With persistent creativity I am keeping straight that fine line boundary between their uniqueness and the social behavioural norms of every age and stage. This hat is heavy, but it strengthen my neck!

#3 hat it’s a metallic gate of manifestation. The metal sinks under the action of its own weight. Alike my pen, this hat magically glows into the dark. It’s like my lifeline into an ocean of sighs and sorrow. It echoes my voice; sometimes in whisper, but definitely during this year it became stronger and louder. Wearing this hat I discipline and structure my natural talents and connect them to my acquired knowledge and experiences. Sometimes it works wonders. Its metallic structure mirrors the needs of others, and probably that’s why I wear it with so much love and compassion. It fits me greatly! It magnifies the light into my eyes!

#4 hat of friendship flows like a river. It is cold, and it’s the narrowest of all. This one floods me from time to time, and I found that there is a real need for re-designing. Until it feels comfortable to be worn, I’ll stick with my tiny group of delightful gifted ladies, in the call for new ways of inspiration!

#5 hat is as refreshing as the wood that keeps the house warm through the year. I wear this hat with so much pride. It brings me that much-needed clarity of mind while vacuuming or washing the windows, while sweeping the stairs of the house or while cleaning the dust off. I truly dwelled in this year of restoration. While cleaning and de-cluttering I’ve poured love in every corner of my cozy home. Every single day, during the long and heavy winter season, while wiping the kitchen floor, I was intentionally cleaning up the way to a new path in my professional area. And it really worked out!

Wearing the 5 hats brings me new insights under each and every one of them. While rhythmically rotating them by the energy and the links between them, I do tap into their new angles and their new Divine Design. Alike the 5 elements in Nature, my hats depend on each other and are inseparable.
I love my brand new #HatCollection! enriched by resilient sparkles!!
