HELD WITHIN A VACANT SPACE WITH EYES TO SIGHT THINGS, AND WITH ALL MY SIGHTINGS IVE LEARNED THINGS LIKE HOW TO PROTECT MYSELF AND HOW TO SURVIVE WITH THE RIGHT NUTRITION'S. CURIOSITY OF MY SURROUNDINGS INFLUENCED MY LEARNING OF WALKING AND I BECAME INTERESTED IN THE THINGS THAT STUMBLED UPON SUCH AS THE FRONT DOOR THAT LED TO THE PORCH THAT LED TO THE STREETS WHICH LED TO PHILLIE WRAPPERS AND 40 OUNCES AND ALL THE WAY TO NEEDLES WHICH YOU SEE ON THE GROUND...IM NOT REALLY SURE WHEN I FIRST ALLOWED SO MANY OTHER EYES AROUND ME I JUST KNOW THAT I WAS MORE COMFORTABLE WITH THEM THERE. AS TIME PASSED A CLOSE SET OF EYES TURNED INTO A PAIR OF X'S ( X_X) AND MONTH LATER THE REST GREW REFLECTIONS OF PRISON BARS. DURING MY SOLITUDE I HEARD A QUIET VOICE SAY UNTO ME "ITS TIME FOR UNDERSTANDING" AN UNDERSTANDING THAT THIS VERY VACANT SPACE WHICH WE ARE ALL PLACED INSIDE OF IS ACTUALLY THE TEMPLE OF GOD AND WE ARE NOT TO HARM IT. (FOR WHOSO DESTROYETH THE TEMPLE OF GOD; GOD WILL DESTROY THEM) AND I CRIED UNTO GOD FOR FORGIVENESS AND PRAYED FOR GOD TO BLESS ME WITH A CORRESPONDING TEMPLE WHO ALSO BELIEVES. AN EXACT YEAR LATER.. I FOUND HER.. SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL! AND TAUGHT ME THAT LOVE COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SINS AND I LOVED HER SO VERY MUCH. I PRAISED GOD FOR ANSWERING MY PRAYERS ON TIME. WE PRAISED GOD TOGETHER AND HELD EACH OTHER TIGHT FOR TWO YEARS STRAIGHT ONLY TO LET A SMALL GAP IN BETWEEN FOR OUR MINI TEMPLE WHICH WE BUILT TOGETHER.AND GOD BLESSED US WITH. BACK TO THE UNDERSTANDING THAT GOD PLACED IN ME TO SHARE TO MY FAMILY AND BEYOND...
TO LIVE HOLY IS IDEAL BUT NO TEMPLE IS PERFECT BUT IT IS OUR MISSION TO TRY. IT IS OUR MISSION TO FIND OUR OWN WAY THEREFORE THERE SHALL BE NO PROGRAMMED MINDS! RESEARCH YOUR BELIEFS IN YOUR HEART TO ULTIMATELY KNOW. SPREAD PEACE AND LOVE TO ONE ANOTHER, STAY PATIENT AND HUMBLE UPON YOUR JOURNEY AND REPENT FROM SINS COMMITTED BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY REMEMBER GOD LOVES US ALL NO MATTER WHAT...
PRAISES TO THE MOST HIGH

Well, I am on the first day of naturally growing dreads. So now thinking more after reading so much, how long exactly should I wait to wash my hair again? And exactly what kind of shampoo is going to be best for this process. I don't want to use something that's going to be bad for my dreads etc. Btw I just got the pic uploader to work for me. You can see how much hair im going to be working with! This is going to be so much fun. Not only that but a completely new life for me I am so ready for this journey.

So my Husband and I live right outside of a USMC base (he's in the USMC) And I find that going on base or even meeting other females for friendships is awful! I've been here 2 months and I made 2 friends (before I dreaded) and only 1 of them will still hang out with me on a daily basis. I've learned to ignore the up and down looks of people who just don't understand me. But I'm tired of not having any friends to talk to or go out with. I left behind my family and friends and I just want some dread friendly people in my life! The other wives are ferocious and always so against each other which is why I can't seem to find a good decent person to interact with except for 1! We're in the desert, someone just come and be friends with me <3 Hoop loving is a plus! (They don't understand that either)

My boyfriend and myself were in our back yard admiring fire flies, this is when we walked over to a path we have leading to our chicken coop; my boyfriend noticed in the sky what he thought to be planes. About 100 feet from where we stood we saw 3 red bright lights round in shape. There were two red lights that were clearly separate objects following closely to a much larger object. It flew closer approximately 50 feet above us very fast. When it was above the tree tops we could see them in an opening of the trees. I saw a triangular shaped flying object with a haze around it very large in size with red lights, two separate objects trailing behind it, both were red lights moving in their own paths. The two red lights were flying behind it never beside it. The 3 objects hovered slowly over the tree tops towards the north silently as they flew over our pond we could not see them because of the trees.
This is the account I wrote to report to MUFON. However because they wanted only the facts I could not express everything that I felt during this sighting. For one I had my camera in my hand and because I was so shaken up I was fumbling around with the buttons. I could not seem to focus my camera because it was so dark out and I didnt want to miss what was going on with my eyes. So I stayed focused and tried to video record what was happening but in the end I just got a black video with the sound. I was really upset about this later because that is usually the first thing people ask; Did you get a picture?
Anyways, There was alot of confusion as to what I was seeing. My mind was trying to comprehend something that it had never seen before. Once we knew we were in fact looking at something that was not of this Earth Damon started to get excited and started calling it over to him. Just as it had come closer when I thought * What is that?* It went away when I thought about my son being in the house and with panic yelled *Dont bring it over here!* There was something telepathic going on. We only saw it for maybe a minute and then it slowly hovered above the trees and to the north. I was pumped with adrenaline and the first person I called was my daughter, my father was next. I posted a Facebook status with out thinking what people were really going to think and say, I just wanted to share what a rare and amazing thing that had just happened. I stayed up that night until 2am just in complete shock. The next day I researched almost all day images of military aircraft. I even wrote a letter to the local paper in hopes someone would debunk my story and say oh military was in the area that night but nothing. I was left with lots of questions. I felt like I was really alone emotionally even though Damon had seen it too, I broke down and cried.
I did correspond with Tadd Buffington from MUFON and a senior engineer for Nasa. We started corresponding in July when I gave him a detailed phone account. By August it was ruled a unknown case. Here is the email he sent me.
Your sighting is pretty remarkable. It is classified as an Unknown as the official investigation showed no aircraft, balloons, or other devices were in the area.
Beams of light emitted Three bright lights (one at each point) Large size Ability to hover Ability to make flat turns Silent flight Slow speed Low-altitude flight Sharp turns at high speed Rapid acceleration Colored (glowing) underside Erratic movement Blunt-end-forward movement Detachable lights/objects Shape-shifting Superstructure observed

So I've been wanting to dye my dreads for some time now after seeing some beautiful pics on here of people with odd locks or the tips of their locks dyed and thought seeing as my hair is the next shade down from black that a light colour on the tip would look really gorgeous.
I've been holding off on doing anything particularly to my dreads as they're only just approaching the four month mark and although they've done really well, I didn't want to do anything to hinder or upset the locking process.In the end though temptation won over and after researching a few 'dread dye' related Youtube vids I settled on the idea of just doing the tips (my locks aren't prominent enough yet to dye whole individual ones).
So, grabbed myself a bottle of Peroxcide and some BBlonde bleach stuff and applied it. This was me before the dye went on:
And after chucking the dye on for an hour, I washed it out and realised that it hadn't quite gone the blonde I had expected but because I hadn't put enough dye on my dreads it had instead gone a tint of ginger!
But you know what? Once my hair dried off and I could see what it looked like as a whole I actually really LOVED IT! I thought about re-dyeing to try and go blonde, but to Hell with it! I really like the look of how they turned out. See for yourself!
Of course the coverage isn't great because I didn't use enough dye so there's patches of brown and black in there, but considering this went wrong it could've looked considerably different (and not for the better!). I'm putting this one down as a happy accident.
I always wanted to be a redhead anyway :D

Six months before my 30th birthday, I decided I was going to quit smoking. In order for my insurance to pay for Chantix, I had to attend smoking cessation classes. This was the beginning of the rest of my life. In these classes we were taught about changing our language. Instead of I NEED a cigarette, it was to become I WANT a cigarette. Instead of I WANT a cigarette but I CANT, it was to become I CAN have a cigarette, but I dont WANT one. We were also supposed to develop a mantra, something to chant to help us through a craving. Mine was on the generic basis of I think, therefore I am. With that in mind I came up with simply saying, I do not want a cigarette over and over in my head until the craving passed. I had my last cigarette on September 28th 2010. I translated this into other aspects of my life.
I used to spend hours in front of a mirror and in salons, thousands of dollars on cosmetics and clothes. I was obsessed with looking beautiful, attempting to recreate the images in magazines and television. This put my self-esteem at a major low. How was I to know I was beautiful? I was consumed by what other people thought of me. My husband told me everyday he thought I was beautiful, but this didnt count; he was supposed to think that. I had children and my body changed and he still told me how beautiful I was to him. That wasnt enough for me. I wanted to be beautiful to EVERYONE, and how could I with all of these stretch marks, this loose skin, freckles, frizzy hair, puffy eyes, pale skinthe list went on and on in my head, the list of all the things wrong with me. Then it dawned on me, I think, therefor I am. I was constantly thinking about all of the things that were wrong with me, so I only saw those things. When I would start to spiral into that thought process, just like when I would crave a cigarette, I would chant to myself over and over in my head, I am beautiful. After a couple of months I gained confidence, I lost weight, my skin cleared up so I was wearing less make-upso my skin was healthier. I was actually becoming more beautiful. The final push was 2 years ago. I had always admired women with dreadlocks, the confidence they showed and the beauty they embraced. A beauty outside of the normal conventions I used to be so obsessed with. After a little research, a huge show of support from my husband, and a whole lot of excitement, I decided to go for it. Through the process of allowing my hair to dread naturally, I have learned patience and to care a whole lot less about what others think of me. I am happy, I am healthy, and I am beautiful.

.....to never wear a hat to cover my natural dreads for the sake of not being looked at funny in public.

If you can't see the ingredients, they are water, organic coconut oil, potassium hydroxide (because it's liquid) organic olive oil, lavandin extract, organic deal hemp fun, organic jojoba oil, lavendar extract, citric acid, tocopherol.
Got it at a local organic harvest market for $6 and some change. It's fair trade, as you can see, meaning all the ingredients are from other countries and they were paid fairly for them.
There are no foaming agents, which means no suds and I can actually use it as a body wash as well.
I washed my hair about 2 days ago so I have to wait one more day to use this but I CANNOT WAIT! I absolutely love the scent of lavender and cannot wait to see how well this will work in helping my hair dread naturally.
I know soaring eagle suggested something else for me, but I'd rather choose something that's local and support my economic area!
