The Wisdom of Snake

When Bear first guided me to meet Snake, there was great blackness. It seemed I was in a great void. I could not see anything. Then, out of the corner of my eye there was movement. I saw myself, writhing around and around. My body became long and spiraled like a snake. It continued to spiral around and around growing larger and larger with every twist and turn. In the distance I saw the Earth and the giant serpent began to move towards it. As it approached the Earth’s atmosphere, The snake transformed into a DNA helix and moved down towards the surface. I followed it into a space where a man and a woman were coming together in a sexual union. The serpent DNA helix moved through both of them and into the womb of the woman.

I watched as a fetus grew inside her and resembled a reptile during many of its phases. It was at this point that snake began to speak. "We snakes are the physical manifestation of the creative life force that is continually streaming onto the planet. Our bodies match the spiraling wave that is all around us. It moves through you and is pure creativity. We hold its secrets and the secrets of your DNA. We can awaken great creativity in you and are also the keepers of kundalini. We have been feared because of the secrets we hold. There are many who do not wish for you to know who you really are." Snakes tongue shot up into the sky, split in two and curved around the entire planet forming a sort of egg. Snake spoke again. "What will you birth from this egg? Will you break free and into the cosmos realizing your multidimensiality? Duality is only a creation of the lower mind. It is like an egg to break out of. You are incubating inside until you are ready to birth yourself back to the stars."

"If I come to you," she said, "You must look at your creativity. Is it wrapped up in drama How are you expressing yourself? The versions of us that are poisonous and constricting mirror your own fears to you. They poison and constrict you. Perhaps we are asking you to transmute those poisons within you and overcome your fears. Snake people hold the power of transmutaion and will able to assist others in this way. Perhaps we are guiding you to explore the mysteries of your religions and your origins as we are wrapped up in those stories. Perhaps we are asking you to shed your old skin and transform yourself. Whatever the case, we are inviting you to create and dive into the mystery of life. Ask us why we have appeared to you and we will show you."
