How do you wear your hair? In a bob? In long flowing locks? Short and spunky? Is your hair the bane of your life or an absolute pleasure? Take a moment to consider its style, shape, colour, length, condition and texture – along with anything else that comes to mind. Then recall what it was like growing up – did you like your hair then?

The words used to describe your hair outline the material of your thoughts – favourable attributes highlight your strong points – less desirable aspects bring to the fore areas that badly need attention and possible improvement. For instance, if you believe your hair to be too dry, it’s likely that you have been so busy thinking of others that your own ideas have dried out – or there’s a chance that you find it a strain getting your own notions across –  otherwise you may be tired of thinking the same old boring, dull, tedious and monotonous thoughts – time and time again – getting nowhere fast! These are just a few of the many possibilities.

Your views regarding your hair in earlier years show whether you were able to think for yourself or had to do as you were told. If, for instance, you don’t like unruly hair, it could be that you resent never being allowed to be boisterous, wild and unmanageable – your every hair was expected to be in place and you had to behave impeccably – no ‘ifs’, ‘buts’ or ‘wherefores’ about it!

If constantly plagued by a string of relentless ‘bad hair days’, ‘run your fingers through your hair’ to determine why it is impossible to ‘gather your thoughts’ – or why your mind is ‘all over the place’ – or why you just can’t ‘think straight’! ‘Bad hair days’ are actually great when needing to be creative and think ‘out of the box’ – a good ruffling of hair is the best way to make the mind go berserk and bring some great concepts to the fore. Just think of the crazy professor invariably depicted with dishevelled hair – yet a brilliant mind!

Hairs are your antennae – those on your head telepathically pick up thoughts – especially when on the ‘same wavelength’ – should anybody have the audacity to think otherwise or it’s impossible to get your point across it can be enough to make you want to ‘pull your hair out’! If this describes you to a ‘T’ – or if you are going through an incredibly challenging period – don’t be surprised that your hair is now thinning! Meanwhile hairs on your body alert you to what’s going on in the vicinity – with ‘hairs standing on the back of the neck’ when concerned, horrified or shocked.

It doesn’t matter if your hair is long, short, straight or curly, as long as you feel good about it. When brushing your hair see it as an opportunity to set your mind straight and brush up your act. It is after all symbolic of your power and the crowning glory that frames your face.

A woman woke up one morning,
looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
‘Well, she said, ‘I think I’ll braid my hair today’
So she did, and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw
that she only had two hairs on her head.
‘Hmmmm’, she said to herself, ‘Today I think I’ll part my hair down the middle’
So she did and she had a grand day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror,
and noticed that she only had one hair on her head.
‘Well’, she said, ‘Today I’m going to wear my hair in a pony tail.’
So she did and had a fun filled day.
The next day, she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed
that there wasn’t a single hair on her head.
‘Today’ she exclaimed, ‘I don’t have to fix a hair on my head!’

And every day she was grateful to be alive
