A month ago I was led to drastically cut my hair. I’m used to wearing it long and I like the flexibility of being able to wear it different ways. But I had been building up this angst and urgency for a few weeks, feeling like I just HAD to cut it off. As most things in my life, I knew it wasn’t just about cutting my hair, knew it wasn’t just about the surface reason. The cut ended up being shorter than I had imagined, and I’m already growing it out 🙂 But even the extra cutting was important and had a deeper meaning.
I’ve done the drastic cut thing before but never so consciously. When I was sharing my shock of the new length, to another spiritual friend, she reminded me that what I had really done, been led to do, is to cut off the years of energy, old energy, from the past, as it no longer belongs with me. Aha! That really resonated with me as in addition to these 5 plus years I’ve been on the road, doing my more focused work to shut down the dark and assist with the Shift into the light, the last several years before, in Seattle, had been filled with one shocking situation/circumstance/loss/injury, after another, more than anytime before in my life. And since I grew up severely ill and close to death, that is saying a lot.
I wrote a blog post 8 years ago, called (R)evolution, about how my hair changed. I started out with some curls, but between my Mom braiding my hair often and all the medications I was on, it became very straight. But in 1975, during my most amazing semester in college, filled with revolutionary topics leading to soul awakenings, the underneath and back of my hair became curly. I still have a top layer, and sides that are a little wavy but much straighter, with this odd curly almost ringlets curl underneath. Here is the link to that post: https://empowerandbalance.wordpress.com/2009/11/23/r-evolution/
Here is my before and after photos. My long hair was very healthy, but had that straight layer on top, in the back, with the curls underneath.
I wanted to share this to remind all of you, that part of the shift we are in, is about not only shutting down “the ” Dark, and dark within us, but letting go of all the relationships, situations, beliefs, circumstances, etc. that don’t fit us anymore. Letting go of what doesn’t belong in higher dimensions. We can shut down the dark governments, systems, laws and legislation, structures, corporations, institutions, etc. but/and, in order to truly create a new world, we have to step into a higher way of being ourselves. We have to recognize our Oneness, honor each other as sovereign beings, recognize our divinity, and make decisions now based on the good of all and the good of the planet. Operating from greed and power over others won’t fly anymore. We will reclaim our power, restore self love, self confidence, and our worth. Thus, many people, beliefs and circumstances in our life won’t fit anymore.
And just as my new haircut, will over time grow out, as we let go of the old, we make room for the new, make room for what truly uplifts us, fits us, delights us, supports us in being the highest version of ourselves we can be.
May we quickly experience the full shut down of the dark, and Shift into the light. It is on my Christmas list but I don’t want to have to wait until then to open it 🙂
