How Shaving Your Head Can Raise Your Energies | Sadhguru

if you suddenly remove this hair then you will see the energies will move in that direction if you activate the two chakras which are about the physical body it's a phenomenal possibility it also makes your physical body little [Music] fragile [Music] now we've spoken plenty about this but anyway if you if you prune this tree today the tree will focus its energy towards the area that's been pruned and you will see suppose you prune this part of the tree and don't prune that you will see in this part of the tree the number of leaves that will come out in the next 15 days or a month is much much more than in the other part of the tree have you noticed this yes or no because now that this is pruned the tree directs its energy in that direction to others it will leave and direct this way because here the leaf must come back the same happens in your body if you suddenly remove this hair then you will see the energies will move in that direction so people who are doing certain type of sadhana want that to happen so we people don't just shave their head whenever they feel like it and the darkest night of the month which is called as the shivaratri the fourteenth day of the moon's faces one day before omasia and that day they shave because on that day and the amount today and the next day when energies are naturally there is an upsurge of energy in the human system we want to accelerate that a little more so on that day it is taken off because there is sadhana attached to that if there is no sadhana it won't make much of a difference some of you may know that particularly ladies who have never shaved their head in their life suddenly one day if they go and shave their hair they will become mentally imbalanced because excessive energy in the direction they are not able to handle if already there is a small imbalance it will exaggerate itself because there is an excess energy moment in the direction but if it's calibrated properly and there is a necessary sadhana to support it it works to your benefit so a spiritual seeker asadaka who is not only seeking for a spiritual well-being who is seeking how to become an instrument of a larger possibility such a person wants to use every little support that is available in nature so shaving one's head is a part of that if there is no such sadhana if that type of sadhana is not there shearing of the hair has really no meaning as such and if somebody reaches a state where his energies are really bursting out of his head if you activate the two chakras which are about the physical body if those two chakras become active in someone then we will not shave in fact we would like to grow it and tie it up just above that so that it is protected and nurtured if you don't have enough hair we will use cloth you think i'm bandaged or something yes in my leg but so if if there is not enough hair then you have to use something else but you will need that otherwise there will be once the two chakras about the physical body are on it's a phenomenal possibility but it also makes your physical body little fragile it tends to draw more than it should and this is the reason a lot of yogis die before they're 35 because once they attain to a certain level of energy if they don't know all the different aspects of the body if they do not understand the mechanics of how the human system functions if you do not understand all the tricks of the creator in how many ways he's made this so complex and sophisticated because sophistication is not just to make it complicated sophistication means there are more possibilities than simplistic machine this is a highly sophisticated machine so once the energies have topped off then it needs to be protected if you have thick long hair that could be made use of it's a natural garment [Music] which you don't have or if you're afraid you will lose your hair then you dreadlock it you know you know the dreadlocks you see in sadhu sanyasis it can be done i won't tell you how because if you start going around with dreadlocks that will not be good there is a way to get your hair into a dreadlock so you do that or you don't have that much hair then you use something else garment or a cloth comes in handy [Music] the nature of the body is such the volume of energy that a one neuron consumes in the body in the in the brain is many many many fold more than what one cell in the body consumes so in terms of [Music] the physical structure how the energy consumption is distributed you can see this yourself if somebody worries about something they will lose weight the best ways to lose weight is worry about something you know that isn't it yes or no [Music] because more activity means more stressful activity in the brain means it'll consume a lot of energy and it will bring down the body's weight so the reason why hatha yoga is as important as it is is simply to be able to conduct the body in such a way [Music] that your energies are well rooted in your physicality before you attempt higher possibilities if one is not well rooted in his physicality then higher possibilities will take you off from physicality taking you off from physicality means one may become less capable physically or you may leave altogether some of the buddhist scriptures saying [Music] gautama before his enlightenment walked like a man after his enlightenment he walked like a woman what what they're trying to say is the body became less in physical physically definitely a male bodies little more than a female body so he became little less so he became he lost his manly capabilities and became soft because his energy shifted to a different dimension that's what they're trying to say [Applause] you
