Soaring Eagle you have put into words my reasons for dreading. I was called to this...its something thta has been very difficult for me to explain..a change with in myself came first. I am the type of person that does not like conflict or like to stand out and I knew dreads would make me stand out and I did keep that in mind however something much more powerful was calling me to continue. I am a very spiritual person and have been trying to get back to being the natural being God created me to be. Thank you for writing this article ..I will be sharing this on my facebook so friends can read. I have had a lot of questions from people and some friends even are sparked to want to dread their hair as well..but I would only want to guide those into it that are going to take them seriously not as a fashion. They are a life dedication

I loved this post!

Now I understand what to grow dreads really means and by now I learned and it has at least a deep meaning for me this time.

Thanks, Soaring Eagle for writing this. :)

My favourite bits are:

There's also a dedication to self, to be true to te self

and I can't find it now, I think it was in one of your comments, but something about how

ultimately the dreads are within.

I would be totally gutted if I had to shave my head or cut my dreads and I wish I'd had the confidence to dread when I first wanted to ten years ago. But if my head was shaved that for me would be the real test of my spirituality - could I still love and feel full, or is my connection to Love and fullness dependent on my hair. The real dreads are within and that can never be taken away. I know this intellectually but in actuality I'd be miserable and so I've got a long way to go. I'm not going to get rid of my dreads, never! But the real dreads are within.
