The Uncut Hair and Why?
I used to cut my hair and then went through phases and did not, not even a trim.But then I stopped cutting my hair over ten years ago…Because I realized my hairacted like an antenna.I put it up in a knot during the day and then comb it down before bed. I apply almond oil or coconut to the ends of my hair to keep it nice
Did you know that left uncut, your hair will grow to a particular length and then stop all by itself at the correct length for you? Hair is an amazing gift of nature that can actually help raise the creative life force, which increases vitality, intuition, and tranquility.
In addition, 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. It takes approximately three years from the last time your hair was cut for new antennas to form at the tips of the hair.
The bones in the forehead are porous and function to transmit light to the pineal gland, which affects brain activity, as well as thyroid and sexual hormones. Cutting bangs which cover the forehead impedes this process.
When the hair on your head is allowed to attain its full, mature length, then phosphorous, calcium, and vitamin D are all produced, and enter the lymphatic fluid, and eventually the spinal fluid through the two ducts on the top of the brain. This ionic change creates more efficient memory and leads to greater physical energy, improved stamina, and patience.
In India, a Rishi is known as a wise one who coils his or her hair up on the crown of the head during the day to energize the brain cells, and then combs it down at night. A ‘rishi knot’ energizes your magnetic field (aura) and stimulates the pineal gland in the center of your brain.
During the day, the hair absorbs solar energy, but at night it absorbs lunar energy. Keeping the hair up during the day and down at night aids in this process. Braiding your hair at night will help your electromagnetic field balance out from the day.
Dry Hair before putting it up to avoid a headache. When you put your hair up wet, it can tend to shrink and tighten a bit and even break as it dries. Occasionally take the time to sit in the sun and allow your clean, wet hair to dry naturally and absorb some extra vitamin D.
When humans allow their hair to grow, they are welcoming the maturity, the responsibility of being fully-grown, and fully powerful. That is why you will find grace and calmness in a person with uncut hair from birth, if it is kept well.
Hence my child’s hair has never ever been cut.
In Yogi Bhajan’s words, “Your hair is not there by mistake. It has a definite purpose, which saints will discover and other men will laugh at.”
Yogi Bhajan has explained that if you choose to cut your hair, you not only lose this extra energy and nourishment, but your body must then provide a great amount of vital energy and nutrients to continually re-grow the missing hair.
