We are in the last month of this year, which has been a powerful one, but it isn’t quite over yet! There is still a lot of work to do as we are heading into the some of the most powerful days of this year! So I ask… What medicine do we need that will support us and carry us into the next transition? Snake slithered into my fingers with fire in its eyes.
Snake is the power of transmutation. It represents creation, sexuality, psychic energy, and ascension. It is a true example of the cycle of death and rebirth as shown through the shedding of its own skin.
“This medicine teaches you on a personal level that you are a universal being. Through accepting all aspects of your life, you can bring about the transmutation of the fire medicine. This fire energy, when functioning on the material plane, creates passion, desire, procreation, and physical vitality. On the emotional plane, it becomes ambition, creation, resolution, and dreams. On the mental plane it becomes intellect, power, charisma, and leadership. When snake reaches the spiritual plane, it becomes wisdom, understanding, wholeness, and connection to the Great Spirit.”
-Jamie Sams + David Carson
So, snake is here to support us in burning up that which needs to be shed in order for our rebirth into the next phase of consciousness to occur. It is here to bring the healing we need so that masculine and feminine can intertwine in wholeness, producing divine energy. Accept your life fully and totally, transmute and transcend all mental, physical, and emotional poisons!! The time is NOW. Step into the fire! Embrace the power of Beingness and allow the Great Spirit within to rise from the ashes.
"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about."
"The medial woman stands between the worlds of consensual reality and the mystical unconscious and mediates between them. The medial woman is the transmitter and the receiver between two or more values or ideas. She is the one who brings new ideas to life, exchanges old ideas for innovative ones, translates between the world of the rational and the world of the imaginal. She “hears” things, “knows” things, and “senses” what should come next."

"Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things, and still be calm in your heart."
