Today, it is a personal preference on the length and the style of hair we chose to keep. But knowing their cosmic connection, you will be compelled to redefine your thinking.
In early times, various cultures and civilizations, well aware of this truth used to prevent their hairs from any cut.
When any tribe, culture or person was enslaved they used to cut their hairs to symbolize the taking up of their intuitive powers.
Our earth itself is like a living organism, and every micro to macro entity residing in has a function to perform.Then how can the growth of our hairs not be serving us?
The truth is that hairs are as much important as our other body parts are.
Our hair fashions might be just a trend, but if we investigate, we may find that we have been depriving ourselves of one of the most valuable sources of energy for human vitality.” -Yogi Bhajan
Hairs as an extension of the brain
Do you get goosebumps when you encounter any threat? If yes, then this is your hairs in action alerting the brain.
Likewise, this shows that hairs on your hand are also not extraneous.
The cosmic connection of hairs also answers the question “why women are more intuitive than men”.
Whether you realize or not- hairs distributed all over your body has some specific function to perform.
Our hair antennas form at the tip of the hairs and it takes about three years from the last cut to get the antenna back again.
Yogi Bhajan advised that almond oil should be applied to prevent split ends.
This antenna acts as an extension of the nervous system and serves to sense the energy of the environment. Also, it transfers the brain energy in the form of patterns and frequencies back to the environment.
These hair antennas act as a channel to absorb the cosmic energy which then travels down the spine.
Kundalini energy (life force energy) which resides at the base of the spine then rises upwards to keep the balance.Thereby raising the kundalini energy.
What difference does short hair make from long hair?
As claimed by Yogi Bhajan, when we allow the hairs to reach their full length the minerals and nutrients can then entering the spinal fluid. This aids in improving memory and elevating the energy levels.
By cutting hairs, we stop this useful flow as now the mineral and nutrients have to first work to grow back the hair again.
Worry not for your hairs will not grow uncontrolled. They will grow to a desirable length as appropriate for your body and then stop growing itself.
Also, people with long hairs feel more energetic, are more intuitive and less depressed as opposed to people with short hairs who lose this energy.
The coiling up of hair at the top for energizing them during the day by obtaining cosmic energy (life force energy) from the sun is known as Rishi knot.
At night hairs are left open to get the lunar energy.
Why some yogis shave their hair?
As a spiritual seeker, while we meditate, do yoga, prayer our main aim is to direct our energy upwards.
Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev tells, on Shivratri, a day before the new moon when the day is more receptive to certain kind of sadhana, yogis shave their hair to direct their energy upwards
When yogis shave their hair, there is a surge of energy in that direction. But this ritual is performed only up to a certain level since when the energy reaches the desired level it should not be increased further.
From thereon, they have to work towards is containment which they do by leaving their hair uncut and grow without restraint.
