it took a while to compile this album -
3 years worth of memories to scroll through! & man... the journey my dread babies took me through.. 😢
they started as a symbolic expression of free will.
a statement that my appearance shouldn't matter to any one else, & other's opinions were irrelevant when it came to MY hair. ... they evolved into sooo MUCH more!
they truly became a platform for me to express creatively & grow spiritually.
intertwining healing crystals into my locs was ART to me! 💎 " From a yogic perspective, hair is an amazing gift of nature that can actually help raise the Kundalini energy (creative life force), which increases vitality, intuition, and tranquility.
Hairs are the antennas that gather and channel the sun energy or prana to the frontal lobes, the part of the brain you use for meditation and visualization. These antennas act as conduits to bring you greater quantities of subtle, cosmic energy. "
as my dreads evolved over time, they brought me along a truly spiritual journey. 🌌
i discovered and learned much along the way - not only about myself but also about determination, perseverance & PATIENCE!
to some y'all may be likeee "girl, chill.. it was just hair".. lol
but y'all just don't know.. & that's the point - it was MY journey to GROW through, & not yours to try to understand.. 😏😋 at the end of the day we're all CONSTANTLY evolving & changing.. 🥀🌷⚘ my dreadbabies were a tool that helped me along my path!
but now that they're gone I am a mix of emotions - 🌹 the main reason they got cut was bcuz they were causing neck pain 😭 [just wayyy too heavy for my tiny little neck 😅] 🌹 spiritually & energetically, i felt that they were getting HEAVY as well! [again, y'all may not understand] but 3 years worth of emotions were bottled up / intertwined within my dreads! 🌹 I was really sad to make that first chop - but now the process is gone i feel soooo much LIGHTER & energetically REVITALIZED!
my big take away from having them? 🤔
stick with whatever makes YOU happy!
cuz at the end of the day - it's your 'hair'.. life... journey.... etc!
live to please yourself ALWAYS!! 😜
