HAIR IS SACRED & ALIVE?
Take a moment to think of your relationship with your hair. When did you last have a loving relationship with it? What do you currently do to appreciate it, after all it is skin like that of our face/body made of keratinized cells? And what would you do differently to better care for your hair? What events in your life have drawn you to drastically change your hair and how did you feel after the change? How do you feel after any hair service? How do you identify with your hair in relation to image in mind, body, & soul?
((( Pause & Reflect )))
As you continue reading keep your answers in mind.
Just as your body is a sacred temple from Mother Earth, hair is equally as sacred since it resides within the auric field, our aura. Hair serves more than aesthetic beauty, they’re antennas, communicating through the spirit realms for us to listen (feeding into our crown), retaining memory/attachments of its surroundings like a filter and weathering away like the leaves and branches on a tree. We truly believe hair is a living integral extension of ourselves that we unfortunately neglect and at times harm with little to no concern of its well-being.
Varies cultures hold ceremony for hair and some cultures don’t cut it at all for it diminishes its connection to Spirit, such as the Native Americans. In Thai Buddhism the newborn’s hair is shaved, leaving a tuft of hair at the crown, then setting the hair afloat on a banana leaf signifying freedom from the past. Hindus believe that an infant’s hair retains traces of past lives, so, as an act of purification between ages of one and three years, the Mundan head shaving sacrament is performed. Many cultures believe that hair carries something of essence from the person it belonged to, meaning, it could be used as a charm, for both good or evil purposes. Therefore, before professional hairdressing became common, it was essential that you have complete trust in the person you chose to do your hair, you wouldn’t want the discarded locks ending up in the wrong hands.
WHAT IS A RITUAL BATH?
A ritual bath is a religious or magic ceremony, which involves the use of water to immerse or anoint a subject’s body. A common example is the many forms of baptism, such as total submersion to a symbolic sprinkle or anointing the forehead; which shows how divers ritual baths can be while still sharing the same purification meaning. Ritual baths can be performed anywhere that sacred space can be held, from indoors to outdoors; rivers, streams or ponds. The locus can have mutually reinforcing symbolic meanings, including time, date, planetary and astrological influences.
WHAT IS A SACRED HAIR BATH?
“Sacred hair baths are ritual baths created to bring beauty in balance with mind, body, soul and Spirit in an innovative sacred way.”
The intention is not only for holding sacred space for its participants, but to cleanse/purify the mind, releasing past/present/future energetic attachments and/or soul contracts; and bringing mental/emotional clarity throughout the ceremony—truly caring for your crown and reconnecting you to the divine.
OUR SACRED HAIR BATH
Our Sacred Hair Bath opens with smudging of each participant before entering sacred space.
• briefing on the history of ritual bathing and hair sacredness

Ceremony will begin closing with blessings in three parts:
1) sealing the participants’ healing
2) facilitated Despacho (tribute to Mother Earth) by Alex.
3) sharing of participants’ experience, closing sacred space with our blessed farewells
Before a hot towel is placed on the head, a gentle yet invigorating chakra stimulation with essential oils through the crown is done using Shamanic Reiki and Ayurvedic Indian Head Massage techniques, to seal the healing (both literally/figuratively) for the hair & crown. The tribute to Mother Earth is for sending off our wishes/blessings through setting aflame in a fire pit. Lastly, A sharing of participants’ experience will follow with closing of sacred space and our blessed farewells.

DEEPER MEANING OF THE DAY
In this case it will be full Moon (Tuesday 12) week and Her energies will still be prevalent among us all, which affects our mental body frequencies, the mind (emotions, feelings, desires), it is a time of heightened random thoughts to heightened mind activity of specific power when aware of what comes forth from the subconscious mind into the conscious mind. Our Sacred Hair Bath Ceremony is when Mother Moon rests in Cancer and Father in Scorpio. Cancer and Scorpio are both water signs dealing with emotional, creativity, and sexual energies. The date 11/16/2019 adds to a single digit three. Numerologically, it’s a day of the ascended masters to work on our behalf, vibrational frequencies associated with self-expression and creativity; a day of creation and completion associated with divinity. Cancer ruled by Moon brings us sharper intuition, possibility of spiritual and creative renewal, improvement in partners/relationships. A day beneficial for collective group activities, union, congregations of like-minded people. With Scorpio ruled by Pluto grants volcanic sexual energies, which is creative energy, and gives insight into the mysteries of metamorphosis/transformation.
