It’s been 1 year and 6 months since I started my dreadlocks. I have had many different hairstyles in my life, but dreads seem to be the best look for me. I love the natural look of dreads and seeing dreads becoming more common to have in society is great.
Before I had dreadlocks I would always have to comb my hair before I left the house, I was so eager to having the perfect look. Now I don’t have to do much besides make my hair neater simply by just moving my hair out my face or putting it up in a bun. Although I love the simple and easy look of having dreads, I also love styling my hair in ponytails and getting creative with other looks, such as braids. Dreadlocks will give you a lot of patience because when you first start them you realize that they don’t happen over night, it will take a few months before you will see any results. This gave me time to forget about my hair and realize that my hair isn’t a big deal, eventually I started seeing my hair knot up together and the dreadlocks began!
Bob Marley inspired many people to get dreadlocks. As a kid I always loved his hair and his positive music. Bob Marley is probably one of the main reasons why I decided to get dreadlocks. What I love most about Bobs dreads is that they are free formed dreads, meaning that he didn’t do force manipulatation with his hair, having free form dreads will give you a unique look.
Most people I know that have dreadlocks are very positive people. What I love most about people with dreads is that they can have a cool story behind them or a amazing reason on why they wanted them. For me, having dreadlocks can be a spiritual journey. Although it’s just hair I still love how people see their dreads in a positive, spiritual way of life.
I’m glad that I started my Dreadlock journey. Having this hairstyle has got me a lot of compliments and I even inspired people to getdreads too. I don’t feel that my hair is a journey anymore, my hair is more of a lifestyle now and my identity!
Thanks for reading!

For about 1 year I started to become more serious about my spirituality views about life. Spirituality has really changed my life and helped me understand myself more.
Everyday I try to remain positive no matter how bad the day can get.
2. I stopped arguing with people
Argueing has been a issue in the past, overcoming this and realizing that there is no need for me to prove someone wrong has been good for me lately, instead of trying to get my last words in a negative situation I’ll to try understand where the other person is coming from. Not letting arguments and negative conversation in my life has made me into a more positive person and I learned to respect people even when I’m not getting the respect back.
3. Remaining present during stressed times
Usually I would dwell on the past or worry about the future, instead I get myself in the present moment and focus on what is going on now instead of worrying about the possibilities of the future, this had helped me with achieving certain goals and stopped procrastinating.
Meditating has helped me become more positive and happier. I cleared my mind from things that didn’t matter and made me get a chance to see what really matters and what I thought that mattered but was a issue that I had to solve
5. Letting go
Letting go and moving on was something very big on me, I started forgiving myself and others, soon I stopped blaming people for things and started to accept that I cannot change and the best thing is to seek new and better opportunities in life.
5. Open minded
I have started to become more open minded in life! Instead of not seeing interest in activities or people that I didn’t know much about I began to explore my boundaries by trying new hobbies and listening to what other cultures and groups had to say.
Still On My Journey
Knowledge is power, remaining to stay focused on the positive aspect of life is key. I’m continuing to learn, and I feel that my spiritual journey is improving each day. I don’t have a specific goal in this, I will like to see how things will change in the future without dedicating my whole life on it, eventually I feel that this journey wouldn’t be so much of a Journey much longer, but a lifestyle that I will soon adapt to naturally.
Lucid dreaming has always been apart of my life since I was a kid. These dreams have stuck on me and I still remember many dreams that I had and how I controlled them. For those who do not know what lucid dreaming is, let me explain. Lucid dreaming is when the dreamer knows that he or she is dreaming and can begin to take control of the dream.
On The Couch
I remember this dream so much, it was so vivid to me. During this dream I was sitting on a couch, as I started looking around my surrounds I quickly noticed the room getting darker, I became completely aware of the dream and I started to get excited, but was very eager to wake up because I started to worry a little. I tried moving my body around and I finally woke up! It was one of my earliest lucid dreams and after a while I wished that I took more control of the dream and made something out of it.
Jumping Over My House!
This was of my most coolest dreams ever, as a kid I always wanted to jump very high as if I was flying in a way. Having this lucid dream made me get to experience it in a mind manfiestive way. I remember this dream like it was yesterday, I was in front of my house and suddenly I began to know that I was dreaming. Usually I would get excited and wake up immediately but I wanted to enjoy this dream more. Quickly I jumped really high in the air. Knowing that I can control how high I can jump made me go to the extreme! I started jumping back and fourth to my back yard and front yard, eventually I decided to jump really high and remembered seeing clouds and feeling heavy pressure, I quickly woke up because of that. This was one of my most favorited astral projections memories ever!

Living in the mountains can be the perfect vacation or permanent living. Either way the mountains can be one of the most amazing and beautiful escape for most people.
Waking up every morning and looking outside my window and seeing the landscape and the continuous mountains from the distance is such a warm feeling. It reminds me how beautiful earth is!
You can get the best work out by living in the mountains. Going for a run around the hills is such a intense work out, it will keep you more in touch with nature while staying fit outdoors!
Exploring your area is really awesome, finding new locations and new trails is such a great experience, I found a small forest that I didn’t know about! If you live near mountains you should really go on a adventure, you’ll never know what you will find.
4. Wild life
If you live in the mountains you probably came across snakes, coyotes or even bears. The more you go in nature you will realize that that you are not alone. Giving these animals space is the best respect. One day I was walking and looking straight ahead without looking at the ground, I heard a bush move and as I turned around there was a rattlesnake standing tall looking right at me as I ran. Ever since that day I became more aware of my surroundings when in nature, be safe!
After exploring, jogging or just relaxing with friends, it’s a great idea to take the time and look at your surroundings in a positive way and being grateful to be able to experience the great moments that you had. Getting more out in nature is wonderful and great for humans to be in their natural habitat!
Meditation has became a huge part of my life ever since I started and ever since I began meditating I realized a lot about life and became more humble.
1. I became present in the moment
By mediation I was able to put everything aside and focus on the moment. While learning this experience I noticed that I was overthinking about the future instead of being happy for the moment and that there isn’t anything to worry about besides how you are feeling in the moment.
2. I controlled my anger
Losing my temper and letting people argue with me has always been there, controlling my temper has really changed. Instead of me getting angry I noticed that it can become a endless cycle and being mad at someone and argueing will do nothing for you, the best thing I learned was to move forward and forgive people.
3. I saw more beauty in life
Mediating can calm a person down and make people see the world differently. I paid more attention to nature and taking time out of my day to love more
4. I became very motivated in a positive way
I was more inspired to follow my dreams and got strongly motivated to do new things in life. I also learned to control myself more and be more realistic and remain positive instead of overthinking I remained present through too much thinking.
5. I started sleeping better
My sleep schedule has definitely has improved, I wasn’t overthink and stuck in my head. I realized that I was too anxious before I went to sleep that it kept me up. Meditating before sleeping is a great idea and will help you sleep better.
Meditating is key
Meditating has been a great benefit in my life and is now a hobby that I use very often, it helped me stop stressing and learned to not overthink. Mediating is great for becoming in the present moment and not focusing on the past or future, but what is happening as of now.
