that's excellent. thanks so much for sharing your story... after years of contemplating locks, i have decided to fully embark upon the journey!
there was an older woman that used to come into the grocery store i worked in, a beautiful african woman with magnificent locks- she almost always
wrapped her locks up in a turban. i asked her once how she wrapped it so neatly, and so uniquely- and she told me that she was in deep meditation
while wrapping, and the techniques are given to her by her ancestors. and that was that.
i had high respects for this, and it definitely edged my curiosity about wrapping, and locks in general.
because i have journeyed into locking following some intuitive sense, i now find myself in awe of the playground my self has encountered. its
like..okay, here i am, dreadlocks are beautiful and hold this unspoken experience to be experienced. but why did i choose this? i mean, really,
deeply, why have i decided on this. what about this is altering my frequency to meet my highest good? why is this beautiful to some eyes and
not to others? and even more vastly, this is seen all over the world from the dawn of humanity. what would call Sampson, the druids, sahdus and the
rasta culture to take this path? and why now, a serge of locked warriors in the West?
whats' up with our hairs?!
i like to imagine that our hair holds metaphysical properties, as electric lines do, to conduit certain frequencies. i would imagine that shaved heads
hold the same vibe as locked, long lengths- but in a reverse style way. like the tree that grows unobstructed -and just wildly grows & grows- it is
full of life & truth, receiving the rays of the sun, and channeling this information down to the earth. and one day perhaps the tree burns down to the
ground, and switches up his channels of reception. the tree is en-lightened upon with a fresh new perspective, basking in the light & wisdom that he
once had stretched out to receive. Earth welcomes the tree to resonate with her, unobstructed; a different flow of energy has arrived as a teacher, so
Change is the universal constant! so i wouldn't ever imagine that having locks or not having locks, dictates one to be closer to god, or holier than
thou, than any other. and i wouldn't claim -thru my personal experience- that locks are always true to serving the purpose of letting go & letting
god. experiencing our creations (even if it is without attachment) and expressing our mysteries( thru action) is an act of god within us all. change
hair in general, always tends to tie up lots of our energy. i worked in a salon for a while. its nuts. it is creation.. every choice we make is a turn
to nurture another aspect of ourselves- no matter what the choice - it is all about directing your attention and flow of energy in the areas you are
lead, or inticed to go.
considering our hair is at the top of our head, a high traffic area where our energy enters and exits- for many it is the beginning of the identity
zone- i have to wonder- what kind of focus and intent does our hair-or no hair - draw to us? what does it draw out of us?
and like you have mentioned LucidVisions - you tend to your locks with patience, and you cleanse them -with water and natural soaps- perhaps in some
way this is also symbolic of your physical connection to your spirit. it is nurtured.
adio! aloha & Cheers
to all the warriors
