Beginning my dreadlocks journey
My dreadlocks were not started in a salon with a stranger pulling my hair for hours on end
my dreads did not cost more then my rent and take hundreds of hours of hard work.
My dreads formed naturally when i went to a rainbow gathering deep in the wilderness in vermont.
I pent a few weeks there in the national forrest, meditating, celebrating living in bliss.
no pain, no effort, no expense at all. I tradded some crystals for some beads, and stuck them in my untangled hair, and went on my way, forgeting about my hair completely, i drummed around a fire all day and night, chanted spiritual chants, took part in a peyote sweat lodge, made friends with the grumpy old rattlesnake that lived only feet from my tent, bathed in a freezing cold mountain stream letting a waterfall wash my hair clean.
My hair dreaded fast, so fast in fact i was surprised to find dreads suddenly one day. I had had dreads just a year before but had cut them due to pressure to join a corporate hell. I hadn’t even known i intended to dread again, even though i felt a profound loss after cutting them. Once a few dreads formed in the back where the beads were placed more began to follow. some were decorated with wraps and bells and feathers and beads memmories of the beautiful people i had met there.
My dreads held in all this energy that surrounded my, making my journey to dreadlocks a spiritual journey. (dreading usually is but the more you immerse yourself in spirituality the more profound the amplifying affect of growing dreadlocks).
When i left the woods i was well on my way to a full head of dreads, although the top was not full of dreadlocks yet, the back was already fully formed.
The rest of my hair dreaded up over the next month or so.
Today it has been 21 years since i began this journey, and i still continue along the way it was begun. I have never maintained my dreads except by washing, seperating and going back to the forrests where they began.
Surrounding myself in that love that spiritual bliss and
enlightenment i believe is the 1 thing that helped my dreads progress and flourish the way that they have.
I have been blessed with an opportunity to help tens of thousands to begin the dreadlocks journey through the dreadlocks site community i created. I have also been blessed with a lifetime of amazing experiences at rainbow gatherings, and i would not be the man i am today without both the gatherings and my dreadlocks.
