Guys... stop sending me messages asking for sources!! There are none! This is just something that's been floating around the internet recently. For all I know, it's completely made up.
I posted it because it's an interesting notion.
If it makes you think, job done. Even if that means thinking about how ridiculous you think it is!
Have an awesome day -RB
The Truth About Hair and why Indians would keep their hair long
Reported by C. Young
This information about hair has been hidden from the public since the Viet Nam War .
Our culture leads people to believe that hair style is a matter of personal preference, that hair style is a matter of fashion and/or convenience, and that how people wear their hair is simply a cosmetic issue. Back in the Vietnam war however, an entirely different picture emerged, one that has been carefully covered up and hidden from public view.
In the early nineties, Sally [name changed to protect privacy] was married to a licensed psychologist who worked at a VA Medical hospital. He worked with combat veterans with PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. Most of them had served in Vietnam.
Sally said, ”I remember clearly an evening when my husband came back to our apartment on Doctor\’s Circle carrying a thick official looking folder in his hands. Inside were hundreds of pages of certain studies commissioned by the government. He was in shock from the contents. What he read in those documents completely changed his life. From that moment on my conservative middle of the road husband grew his hair and beard and never cut them again. What is more, the VA Medical center let him do it, and other very conservative men in the staff followed his example. As I read the documents, I learned why. It seems that during the Vietnam War special forces in the war department had sent undercover experts to comb American Indian Reservations looking for talented scouts, for tough young men trained to move stealthily through rough terrain. They were especially looking for men with outstanding, almost supernatural, tracking abilities. Before being approached, these carefully !
selected men were extensively documented as experts in tracking and survival.
With the usual enticements, the well proven smooth phrases used to enroll new recruits, some of these Indian trackers were then enlisted. Once enlisted, an amazing thing happened. Whatever talents and skills they had possessed on the reservation seemed to mysteriously disappear, as recruit after recruit failed to perform as expected in the field.
Serious causalities and failures of performance led the government to contract expensive testing of these recruits, and this is what was found.
When questioned about their failure to perform as expected, the older recruits replied consistently that when they received their required military haircuts, they could no longer ’sense’ the enemy, they could no longer access a ’sixth sense’, their ’intuition’ no longer was reliable, they couldn’t ’read’ subtle signs as well or access subtle extrasensory information.
So the testing institute recruited more Indian trackers, let them keep their long hair, and tested them in multiple areas. Then they would pair two men together who had received the same scores on all the tests. They would let one man in the pair keep his hair long, and gave the other man a military haircut. Then the two men retook the tests.
Time after time the man with long hair kept making high scores. Time after time, the man with the short hair failed the tests in which he had previously scored high scores.
Here is a typical test:
The recruit is sleeping out in the woods. An armed ’enemy’ approaches the sleeping man. The long haired man is awakened out of his sleep by a strong sense of danger and gets away long before the enemy is close, long before any sounds from the approaching enemy are audible.
In another version of this test the long haired man senses an approach and somehow intuits that the enemy will perform a physical attack. He follows his ’sixth sense’ and stays still, pretending to be sleeping, but quickly grabs the attacker and ’kills’ him as the attacker reaches down to strangle him.
This same man, after having passed these and other tests, then received a military haircut and consistently failed these tests, and many other tests that he had previously passed.
So the document recommended that all Indian trackers be exempt from military haircuts. In fact, it required that trackers keep their hair long.”
The mammalian body has evolved over millions of years. Survival skills of human and animal at times seem almost supernatural. Science is constantly coming up with more discoveries about the amazing abilities of man and animal to survive. Each part of the body has highly sensitive work to perform for the survival and well being of the body as a whole.The body has a reason for every part of itself.
Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved ’feelers’ or ’antennae’ that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brain stem, the limbic system, and the neocortex.
Not only does hair in people, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain, hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. This has been seen in Kirlian photography when a person is photographed with long hair and then rephotographed after the hair is cut.
When hair is cut, receiving and sending transmissions to and from the environment are greatly hampered. This results in numbing-out .
Cutting of hair is a contributing factor to unawareness of environmental distress in local ecosystems. It is also a contributing factor to insensitivity in relationships of all kinds. It contributes to sexual frustration.
In searching for solutions for the distress in our world, it may be time for us to consider that many of our most basic assumptions about reality are in error. It may be that a major part of the solution is looking at us in the face each morning when we see ourselves in the mirror.
The story of Sampson and Delilah in the Bible has a lot of encoded truth to tell us. When Delilah cut Sampson’s hair, the once undefeatable Sampson was defeated.
Oh my... I have been wearing my hair very short and bleached in a punk style version for 2 years now and loving it. I might have to think that over.
Thanks for food for thought. :)
Wow, that's something to think about. I'm glad my hair is long again!!
For some reason I've always had an aversion to cutting my hair. I can remember the very first time I got my hair cut. It wasn't until I was four and I didn't like it and never have since then....hmmmm
No worries MD, poney-tails to the rescue! Whenever it's windy or just easier to have my hair out of the way, I just tie it back. Easy! :D
Fascinating...I've alway found long-haired men much sexier, but jokingly attributed that to being a 1970s hippychick! There's certainly a sense of power and vitality radiating from a healthy long-haired person of either sex; I feel a plentiful growth of bodyhair increases this sense of inner strength.
I work as a phone psychic; the claivoyant images that come to me are cartoon-like information. One image i consistently get to decribe a loss of personal power, giving aways one's power, humiliation, is a bald person. of course, many successful psychics and mediums have short (or no) hair, but this is probably quite different to the survival instincts you describe. There are 2 books that consistently generate psychic images for me: the Bible, and Alice Through the Looking Glass! I've read neither in 40yrs at least, but both contain many human inights and wisdoms.
Olivia - no, I only did a potal Tarot course! (pre-internet days). Always had an interest tho, I played at doing readings with cards as a child. I also took a more active interest by sitting in spiritualist circle for several years prior to starting. So I started with no experience of phone readings; the Tarot was very useful until I got more confident.
It was never on my mind to start as a job at first. But now it's my main income.
If interested, just start looking into it and practising!
