In most of the traditional ancient teachings, every organ of the human body is special and has a special story behind it. We, as humans, are still discovering many truths about our organism and even more about the human soul.
However, there are many secrets and truths hidden from the eyes of the average, modern, 21st-century citizen of the World. The fast life, consumerism, materialism and total apathy all around the world resulted in total neglecting of our spiritual side, in every single one of us, at cost of building fake reputation and wealth in the material world.
Every single piece of your body and soul have special meaning. In this article, we will focus on one very interesting and important part of the human body, especially in the spiritual world- HAIR.
People all around the world had any different beliefs when it comes to hair and its spiritual meaning. In ancient Egypt, monks removed every single hair from their body. They were very strict, and they believed that the true soul awakening could be possible if your skin is as soft as your soul.
When Genghis Khan conquered China, he knew that the Chinese people are wise and smart. He required all women in China to cut their hair and wear bangs, as he knew that his brilliant move will make them timider and easily controlled.
In the Greek mythology, the Gorgon’s hair was made of snakes and, often, many important heroes, Gods, and demigods had powers and weaknesses connected to their hair.
The popularity of hair quickly became a vital part of the top-fashion. The science of hair was one of the first technologies given by Yogi Bhajan when he moved to America.
“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.”- Yogi said.
According to his teachings, our hair has the role of antenna to our body. Actually, many spiritual and energy transmissions are processes that flow strictly through the hair.
Yogis had many positive examples from real life situation when good nurturing of the hair and using its abilities could enable us to benefit greatly. Yogi himself learned how to use his hair to produce more vitamin D in his body, significantly more than an average person.
His recommendations to keep your hair always in the ‘top-form’ are simply. He recommends shampooing every 72 hours, of course, more frequently if the scalp often sweats. Also, he recommends to wash the hair and face each time you’re under stress, depression or process negative emotions.
The hair’s energy will also release positive vibrations to your brain that will calm your whole body down and enable all brain cells to work more effectively.
One of Yogis greatest pieces of advice is also part of his Kundalini techniques that are now popular worldwide. He says that when you allow your hair to grow to its full length and coil it on the crown of the head, the sun energy, pranic life force, is drawn down to the spine. In these magical moments, the strong Kundalini energy arises and creates perfect balance between the soul and the body.
“Your hair is not there by mistake. It has a definite purpose, which saints will discover and other men will laugh at.”- Yogi.
