Earth, Wind, & Fire
One of the primary differences between the old age of religion versus the new age of spirituality is that we are learning to “walk our talk.” This is why so many of us at Unity chose to have our hair cut off and donated to the “Locks of Love” program wherein the hair can be made into wigs for children who have lost their hair–usually from chemo-therapy.
By the time Sunday rolled around, we had only three of us signed up for the ceremonial hair cutting. But, by the time the ceremony was done, we had approximately a dozen donors. The entire event was quite moving but possibly the most moving moment was when one woman donated her hair (as she herself would soon be losing her hair to chemo treatment) but then her son stepped-up to donate his hair as well. This left some of us speechless and in awe of his love and support.
Our hair-cutting ceremony was supported by two long-term hair stylists (Sheila Garten from Chic Salon and Jackie Perry) who did all the amazing hair cutting and styling.
The ceremony/process began with our morning and afternoon service attendees praying over the hair that would be donated–everyone visualizing an amazing healing energy going to the children recipients. Then, after services, two people at a time sat in chairs and (with pure love and trust) had nearly a foot of hair-length rubber-banded and removed. There were lots of tears in the eyes of audience members, as well as supportive applause.
When some of the attendees asked me if it was difficult to donate my hair, my reply was simply this: “Since we so often teach that it’s important to be as non-attached as possible and yet teach that it’s great to give to others the things we think we value, giving my hair only matters enough to allow it to be a meaningful gesture.”
