hi talesin :) thank you for listening~
Miss.Fit~ there is no way to really cut away memories...that would require slicing away at my brain or maybe some strong chemicals...if it was only that easy..
it would be more true to say I was intending to cut away the memories' power over me. I don't really want to erase my past. I don't have regrets, really. It was a combination of an ongoing mourning in a way, and a making peace with those that I associate with pain, from yesterday. I have felt for about six years now that I wanted to do this...release the energy held in my hair...my hair took on the vibrations of all that was experienced these past years.
When I was cutting, I felt very primal and tribal. It was a big deal to me because I identified very much with my long hair. It felt right to do this.
To answer your question, it is helping. In my mind, this physical 'ceremony' gave me a sense of power and a sense of something definite, more concrete than thinking about it. I keep liberating my self. I don't fool my self to believe this is it, now I'm all healed. It is a step, though.
Love to all the ladies
