So pure and sacred are the thoughts of Our Mother, the Earth, that Her hair grows long and fragrant. The Sweet Grasses found growing around the World represent the hair of Our Mother, the Earth. These special grasses have long been collected by the Native Peoples of Earth to use as incense (to perceive by the senses) for physical and spiritual healing, celebrations, for sacred prayer and purification rites. Loving All Her Children, the Earth allows us to share in Her loving intent and Her perfect and purifying thoughts. On the Medicine Wheel Sweetgrass sits in the North position, the place of Water/Consciousness, the Place of the Minder of the Universe, and the Soul of Man.
As Native People walk the Sacred Path of the Creator God, Our Hair, the physical extension of our thoughts, allows for our direction along the Path of Life. All Peoples of Earth have cultural tales/tails (tails guide beings, example; without tails-Birds could not fly, Fish could not swim and Animals would be without balance) depicting the Power of Hair/Thought, telling of the strengths of Men and Women, using thoughts/hair to defeat evil. Should you maintain pure and perfect thoughts, evil sorcerers and witches cannot use your hair in their evil ceremonies to defeat you, for they need the weaknesses in your thoughts, to cause you harm. Believe in the Power of the Creator, not in the magic of Man.
Interesting research was done during times of war and researchers found that native people with long hair were better attuned to dangers and had better senses than the short haired soldiers. Much like the whiskers on a cat help them hunt and understand their environment, long hair improves our senses. This is why I keep my hair long, as it is my strength and keeps me grounded to Mother Earth. #traditions #nativetraditions #powerandstrength #longhair #freespirit #blessed #dopesoul #goodvibes #wildchild #untamed #wildandfree #smudge #forsmudgesake #elderwisdom #connectedtoearth #nativewoman #indigeouswoman #indigenousgoddessgang #Iroquoispride #keeptraditionalive
