Immaturity Game Over

Hello Everyone,
If you are looking for a place to sit back and relax and be yourself you have reached the right destination here.  We are all on a journey.  We all have our own path to walk.  And the kindred spirits will remind you of why you are here
in the first place.

Today I want to talk to you all about how I learned an important lesson from an incident that took place in a Post Office about a year ago.  I was waiting in line to deliver one of the dolls that I sold on my shop when suddenly I suspected someone starring at me.  I turned in the direction that I felt the negative energy and I saw a causian couple whispering to each other and laughing as they looked at me.

I talked to my intuition.  I asked if I should go over to these people and ask the why they are laughing at me.  My intuition guided me to smile at them and pretend not to be affected by their crude and oh so rude behavior.  There attention was no longer on me when I decided not to engage in their game.

Many people create games that they want you to join in on.  Me going over to the couple and yelling at them would put me inside of their game.  Once I would be inside their game I would continue to allow them to feed off of whatever negative feelings I throw out at them.  This was a big,  I mean huge lesson I learned in all of the years of having dreadlocks upon my head.

The Immaturity Game is played by those who are triggered by past events that still haunt them.  For example, someone can bring up a nickname that you were given as a child that has traumatizing events that go with it.  So later on in life when you are called this name you are in the immaturity game caused by a trigger .

Feel free to express who you are and do not play the Immaturity Game.

Freeform Dreadlocks And Acceptance

A lot of people when they decide to let there hair dread they will look to others on how there own hair should look just as if they were  wearing a new hairstyle. For me it is a journey into discovering who I am. Because no two heads  full of dreads are alike.  Even if you both have the supposed  same ancestry there will be variations in texture.  Lifestyle has  a lot   to  do with it as well. What things you put on your  head.  The list goes on.  Not everyone decides to let there hair dread for mystical,religious,or  spiritual reasons.  Some like to have them as fashion. 

After having dreadlocks for little over 17 yrs I have learned through personal experience that my locks are a part of who I am.  Each lock contains energy.  I worked at an  health food store back in 1999 where one of my coworkers who had dreadlocks told me"You locks are your antennae."  After he said that I came home from working and just as I was stepping outside to go to my backyard I felt an electrical charge hit one of my  dreadlocks.  For all of the debunkers out there it  was not stormy night with lots of lightning striking. It was a normal clear night. 

It seems the longer my dreadlocks get the more attention they  draw.  I don't have perfectly manicured salon locks so people around here get confused. I have long dreads,short dreads,medium length dreads and little tiny baby dreads.  My head is working it all out on  her own and does not need assistance via manipulation and tight hair style causing  extreme damage.

Through the years I have learned to not try and have a goal of having my dreadlocks look like anyone but me.  That is the inner journey that I embarked upon from the moment I decided to surrender to nature and let that energy flow. 

My Dreadlock  journey is not for everyone. I do feel like it is a calling to some degree.  I realized that all of those years of manipulation of my hair to achieve acceptance from peers,family members,and supposed friends was a test.  What did I learn.  I learned that chemicals on scalp can affect the way you see the world.
I learned that   wearing your  hair really tightly on your scalp can suppress and torture your sense of well being.  And I learned to stay away from commercial products.

Some of these companies that are saying that they are African American Hair Care Products are putting petroleum in their hair creams and oils.   And a lot these African American Hair Care Product companies are not run by African Americans.

I have also learned that a lot of people in this world  are trapped in the notion that they can have long  dreadlocks instantly .  Well you can  if you go off and get some dreadlock extensions. If you are called to let your hair lock naturally without any manipulation you will know.  You will,like I had,a resistance to combs,brushes,picks etc.  I went through  stages. And everyone does in her or his own way.

I began to realize through this journey how sensitive I am.  And that I an empath.  I changed the way I  eat and what I eat.  I meditate more and spend more time in nature. I start to see my life's path more clearly and learn how to listen more clearing.  The clear message I receive today in this moment is that in order to get in touch with your higher self you require time to your self away from tvs,radios,cell phones, computers,bossy relatives  etc...
I go outside everyday and bathe in the sunshine,listen to the birds chirping, watch the squirrels do their par cor adventures and connect with what is real.

Warm Regards,
Trina  Sandress

Hello all of you beautiful Freeform Dreadlockers!  I have been making dreadlock beads again. I like to wear them because it gives my crown a bit of art love . Here is a few of the dreadlock beads I have on sale on my etsy shop.    They are made of polymer clay that I sculpt by hand.  I seal them with mod podge to make them water resistant.
