living off grid, comfortably, full time.


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

CJ

After hearing you talk about getting away last week, I started talking to my sons father. We both agreed that getting out of suburbs and on the road would be ideal, and most efficient. I mean why either of us wastes 800/a month at least on rent when we could show our son the world/the land and be apart of earth instead of just becoming part of the problem. We just really want to teach him something real and good. Frankly the suburban sprawl that we have forced ourselves to lve ie always wanted n has grown tiring.

After mayn hours of ifs and or buts...we decided (much thanks to your inspiration on the subject) that we would in fact save (and use any tax refund money) for a bus/van this summer, and then in fall get on the road looking for a better place, visit some friends around the country that weve benn meaning to, and just see whatelse is out there. ...

i have always wanted to get into agriculture...planting foods and herbs as well as flowers that would be my dream to just play in the mud all day. lol. but seriously i have been thinking it would be really awesoem to fnd other who wanted this same dreama new ethic of sorts to build new generations on. it would be awesome to shall the responsibility as well as the rewars with others. as we are all human and its in our nature to connect with eachother.

So i hope theres a place where we all find what we are looking firand the first step to that place, is taking a step, not fearing the unknown, not worrying about if we wil lmake it but how and when and what will it take to make it.

this has been on my mind for days now.

lifestyle change


Dready love

lol...well right now m mowing down on a bundle of parsley snips and some cashew milk (freshly made) because i decided to do my spring detox early and i have a horrible headache becasue i also stopped smoking just two days ago... its actually not that bad. ;)

aside from new improved concern for my body (temple) and what products i support and pay for to use at energizing this beast of a machine (im a girl.. ;) and also a mom. ) i've also started caring more about community. for example i watcha whole bunch of documentaries while cutting wire (for work) and made me want to travel meeet people see the earth, and my fellow earthlings..ya know. i feel connected. and the need for more connections.

i have more time in the morning, and i take shorter showers. my head stays nice and warm cause when im out i always have a hat on. lol.

overall i def feel different/energetic/curious, a lot of the anxious feeling has dissapated in me now. and only four weeks in. !!

Great topic! hope all is dreading nicely your way...

Where to get beads? What kind to get?


Dread Accessories

yeah that is ridiculos. i saw those wooden beads at the store for nothin for like a huge pack. i make hemp jewelry understand that u want to make money for your work, but all you did here was go to store and come home and mark up like a bunch. and thats not work.ppl real artists spend lots of time and energy making awesome handmade things and your just reselling something for more no artistic value added... so yeah. thats my two cents (for free ;)

taking the loooong road.


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

I have wanted to do this many times as well. and was about to before i found out i was preg about two years and nine months ago...now i have to stay in illinois because its court ordered, not to move my residence.... bummer. its a shame his fatherhasnt been there for usin times really needed, his anger and abuseshould have been a sign to just leave state....(shouldda left before court stuff started lol) and now he shows up to have his visitation and pay money owed (honestly he could keep the money if i could just takemy sonand leave tottally would agree to that) and it sucks that im stuck here becasue of a man. iplan to teach Cassady about concoiusness and not too much about money, but definatly about greed andabout hope and things that television doesnt teach us...camp alotand i hope tht when hes 18 maybe together was can take an awesome trip to the gathering or wherever our hearts desire. most of all i hope that my son will be able to see through falsities that can easily be distracting, and see through peoples true intentions based on their actions and not their promises...

I wish you all the luck, and i think you should definatly go for it! youve got only things to gain from journeys like that!

Myth Folklore Ancient Stories Of Powerful Dreads/Hair


History and Religious Significance

here's another one. From the"biblical character in the Old Testament named Samson.. the story of Samson and Delilah. In this, two countries are warring with each other. Samson is a man who's strength is a gift from God, however his strength comes from his hair. Delilah seduces Samson into tell him where his power comes from, so when he's sleeping she cuts it off, thus removing his superior strength. Delilah turns him in to the enemy where they chain him to two pillars and ridicule him every night. Unfortunately for them, they forgot to count on his hair growing back!"

Myth Folklore Ancient Stories Of Powerful Dreads/Hair


History and Religious Significance

Taye was my inspiration for starting this discussion. My other inspiration is my friend Pete...

... who told me an awesome mythical tale of great warrior huntsmen who had long beautiful locks, some of these great hunters were captured by ignorant men, who forced them to cut their hair, and hunt as slaves for their "masters" food. Once these men were sent out into the woods to hunt, they found they were not able to kill anything. They came back empty handed. Once their hair was cut, they lost the will/courage/energy/power/ect. to be the great huntsmen they once were.

Angry, the captors went out and gathered more men to enslave, deciding that maybe cutting their hair did have something to do with it (though it sounded crazy) They found that when they sent these men out to hunt, they indeed could still hunt and bring back great amounts of food.

..I wish i knew if this story had a "happy" ending where they rebelled against the captors, however i do not. i only got a part of the story during a breif game of darts while explaining to my dreadhead friend that i must cut my hair to donate becasue it was a vow i took. but that i would definatly grow it back out. :D and dread it.

Does anyone else know any awesome stories of powers in hair/ folklore where the hair is considered to be apart of onesself/aura; and to let it grow and be free makes your energy field larger/stronger/more powerful.

Very cool stuff.

New to the whole dread-thing :-)


Introduce Yourself

I wish I could like the comment above!

I too have heard of folklore/ancient stories of powers in hair. There was atribe who was captured by white men. The captors cut off the long grown hair of theese magnificent warriors. they sent them out (as slaves) to do thier hunting for them... they were no longer great warriors/huntsmen. they had lost thier power.

A good friend told me that story. hes had his (beautiful) dreads for over two years now. Tjhey started very short and now they are just awesome, and long, and wonderful. He told me that story when i was growing my hair out to donate (i donated 20 inches) i really wanted to dread then, but i had already decided to donate and wanted to fullfill that wish first. Anyways i thoguht it was a very powerful and provoking tale. when i did cut my hair, i noticed a change in myself that was different, i still felt good, and happy about my decision, but wanted to quickly grow out my hair and dread it... lol. it has only been about 9 months since my cut/donation, and my hair isnt very long yet, but i am starting my dread journey. All natural.

The people on this site who have been dreading many years have nothing but love and great advice to share... on that note..

...I would at least consider taking out the extensions, you never know it might become more than just an "awesome hairstyle" for you, and wouldnt the adventure be something to rememeber anyways!? Happy dreading! You have def come to the right site for the right kind of support and love for dreads!

Have a fantastic day!
