Inner Truth - Week 12

The truth is, I am drawn to run a weekly blog hop linky BUT, Mumentum fizzled out, and its replacement Inner Truth was created at a time when I didn't have the self-discipline or time to dedicate to it.

Well the "truth" is I am a secret dowser and I just dowsed several possible blog hop linky themes and the only one that got a STRONG yes (versus the strong nos to the other suggestions) was, you guessed it, Inner Truth.  Full credit to Mama Owl for designing the badge.

So here I am again, feel free to participate.  Linky is at the very bottom...

It will be of a spiritual/personal development nature, with a 2012* theme running through, as this is a year where we are being called to action, and if we don't make the required changes, life will assist us by giving us challenges that make us re-look at things - THAT is where I am at.
*I have just hopped back up here from the bottom of this post, as when loading up the linky I discovered this is week 12 of this linky; how appropriate when I want this linky to be about the issues we are personally facing in 2012, as a result of the energetic changes that are taking place in 2012.
But I never use what I know.

What I know about yoga.
What I know about nutrition.
What I know about health.
What I know about spiritualilty.
What I know about Angels.
What I know about light and dark.

It means I don't live what I know, I don't practice what I know.

This cannot continue.

So, given that I know that hair around my face annoys me; given that I know a fringe blocks my third eye, I write this with a turban on - but rather than a proper one, it is a £1.50 one from Primark that I put on 2 hours ago (it is designed to be worn when one's hair is wet - my hair is not currently wet).

I probably look quite funny right now, or at the very least like someone who's just washed their hair.

Back when I wore a turban to teach Kundalini Yoga a Cranio Sacral therapist confirmed to me the anatomical benefits to wearing a turban.  And you know what, it isn't claptrap - you can FEEL it.  This is the thing about spirituality versus religion.  With religion we did what we were told! It was very Piscean, and meant we were deferential to Priests.  With spirituality we can't be told, because we only believe what we personally experience, (it is the age of aquarius after all) and I personally experience the benefits of wearing a turban, and despite having not practised yoga since Aaron was born, I am being increasingly drawn to wearing a turban.

The one I have on now is a purple towelling one - like I said, principally for hair drying, but it is having the desired effect.  I feel clearer, and more focused.

The below text is taken from here:

Wearing a head covering enables you to command your sixth center, the Ajna Chakra. Covering the head stabilizes the cerebral matter and the 26 parts of the brain, which are interlocked with the neurological system and electromagnetic field. Covering the head creates a focus of the functional circuit of the hemispheres of the brain, and tunes the neurological system. The whole head is to be covered, not just the crown chakra.


Head coverings of any kind are useful for a meditative practice. Turbans in particular are useful for holding energy in, and for creating a meditative focus at the third eye point (brow point). In addition, the turban provides a nice cranial adjustment. Some teachers wear a turban or head covering for these yogic reasons alone.

The skull is made up of tiny bones that are constantly moving even if only by micromillimeters and the degree to which they move impacts levels of calmness or anxiety. Covering the head provides a sense of containment and focus while practicing yoga or while doing work that requires clarity of thought. It literally helps "keep your head together."

The benefit of wearing a turban is that when you wrap the 5 to 7 layers of cloth, you cover the temples, which prevents any variance or movement in the different parts of the skull. A turban automatically gives you a cranial self-adjustment. You can pay for a cranial adjustment, or you can tie a turban for free!
I leave you with pictures of the old me, the radiant turban tying (slimmer me) of bygone earlier years:

  1. You look good in a turban. I've added my 50 days to change my life post to the linky. It's not very spiritual in the common sense of the word but it's my quest of the moment and it feels quite spiritual to me. Hope this is OK.

    1. Of COURSE it is okay. Inner Truth is really about whatever is an INNER journey of PERSONAL discovery for YOU.
      More about PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT than spirituality.
      And you are definitely undergoing that.

  2. Why does the linky-tool for the 100wcgu direct me to a post about inner truth and turbans?

    1. Oh God I don't know. It was entered correctly I swear.

  3. I wrote a very long, perhaps too long, conglomeration of my thoughts in response to your post as well. It's entered in the linksy list too. Hope it's not too bland or off center. It is what it is, though! and you look great in the turban! :) I just cut my hair off, probably six inches or so, and now have a head ache...perhaps that extra weight helped my cranial adjustment. I am not being a smart alec, I'm really curious! Hopefully, things will settle in for me. :) Anyway, was glad to encounter the Innner Thoughts you shared. Thanks for prompting me to write...I think I'm going to find a hat. Happy Thursday!

    1. Something about the way you said "I think I am going to find a hat" made me belly laugh and chuckle for the last 10 minutes.
      So much so that my husband came into the room to see why I was laughing so much.
      But seriously though, there's a lady on You Tube saying how she did not feel well when she cut her hair, so it may well be connected.
