Call Upon the Snake!

Rattle Snake by Christy Freeman

The snake is one of the most well-known animal allies. There are so many people that work with the snake and there are countless myths that surround it. In some cultures they are seen as a positive ally and in some they are known to be negative. In my tradition and in my believe system the snake is one of the most noblest animal allies to work with. I love snake and I hold it in high honor.

Enki Seal

Enki, Sumerian Water God

In my own experience my first spiritual teacher was Enki. He is the Sumerian god of water, he is known for his wisdom, creation, sexuality and fertility. His symbol is two serpents intertwined on a staff. He created man along with Ninmah. He invented writing and he is the keeper of the divine laws. He is the son of An and Nammu. He knows the very heart of the gods. The first time he came and showed himself to me for the first time it was during a journey in which I was to meet a deity and who I met, was myself as half woman, half snake. We danced and share a very spiritual moment. This journey puzzled me for a few years. Then when I was initiated in to shamanic practice I went and meet my teacher and he came to me in his humanoid form. For many other journeys he showed himself as a man coming forth from water. In other journeys he would come to me as a winged serpent. He is a great teacher and I have learned so much from him. His love and guidance are invaluable to my spiritual growth and path.

Snake Animal Ally by Trina Brammah

In this case the first time I encountered the snake animal ally not tied to my teacher was during a few journeys that I did while I was out in the desert. He came to me at at time in which I needed wisdom and guidance. The snake is generally associated with transformation, healing , sexuality and rebirth. Which I had a need for during my time spent in the desert. So snake came to me at the exact time I needed him the most. If you are in a journey and you see snake it means that you are going to go through some significant personal changes, so intense and dramatic that an old self will metaphorically dies as a new self emerges (very much true in my experience). It can also mean that you are going to go through a change in which you will sharpen your mental capacities and open up new channels of awareness. You will be able to resolve a long standing issue by seeing things from a new perspective. You will experience dramatic and unexpected physical or emotional healing very soon coming from an unexpected source.

Call upon the snake when…

… you are going through a major life or developmental transition which requires for you to shed a lot of attachments and especially to your old identity.

… you are moving into unknown territory, a passage through darkness and you are feeling afraid of not being able to overcome it.

… you need healing.

… you need to rid yourself of all self-destructive and self-limiting and self-defeating tendencies or habits.

…you want to increase your vitality, energy and libido.

Honoring our Ancestors

This Friday night October 31st 2014, I will be doing a simple ceremony to send love, peace and light to those who have come before me. Those who have helped me become who I am today. Those who have passed down many virtues, gifts and sometimes pain. No matter what they have given me I receive wisdom from them, each and every day. For all the good and the bad, I shall honor them.

If you would like your ancestors to be added to the Cauldron of Light please comment below with the name of the person or family line you would like to send blessings to.

Many Blessings!
Monica

Love and Light to our Ancestors

Goddess Guidance 10-24-14

It feels like I haven’t done a spread in forever! But I am back now and getting into my normal routine! Today is Venus Day so let’s see which Goddess has stepped forward on your behalf for this week! I got a new deck this week it is the Chakra Insight Oracle cards from Caryn Sangster and so I wanted to use them in conjunction with the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue. To participate all you to do is select a card or cards from the spread and then scroll below to reveal the message the Goddess holds for you. Feel free to comment, enjoy!

The messages have been revealed. Listen to them with an open heart and know that the Divine Feminine will aid you during this time. Take time this week to connect with her and see what other messages or lessons she may have for you.

Card #1 Lakshmi “Stop worrying. Everything is going to be fine.”

Lakshmi is a Hindu goddess and the embodiment of abundance. She is connected to the element of water, the Lotus flower and elephants. She works hand in hand with Ganesh the “Great remover of obstacles”. Both together they can help you overcome any fears you may have and facilitate the blossoming of abundance in your life. Her message is to let you know that your needs will always be met. Take time to center yourself and really understand and accept this truth. The Third Eye Chakra came out in tandem with Lakshmi, which is telling you to trust your inner intuition and let it guide your way. Trust that you are connected to the Divine and you will make the right choices as long as you listen to your inner wisdom.  Fill your heart with gratitude and plant the seeds of positive thoughts and intentions for your life and let your higher-self lead the way. If you like to give her an offering place some rice, coins and basil on your altar’s offering bowl.

Card #2 Isolt, Undying Love – “The love you have shared is eternal, regardless of the situation.”

Isolt is a Celtic goddess trapped in a tragic love between King Mark of Cornwall and Sir Tristan. Because of her own experiences with relationships and love, Isolt brings her energies to help in matters of relationships of love, including familial, romantic and friendships. She comes forward to let us know this is the time to heal our heart. The fact that this goddess came forward with the Inner Child Chakra card it is telling you that you need to find, embrace and let that inner child shine through. When we live our lives coming from a place of playfulness, innocence and full of wonder everyday becomes a pleasure to be lived.  Connecting with our inner child as well as Isolt it brings healing to the heart. Know that you are an eternal being having a physical experience and take the time to let to feel awe and wonder once again. Light a pink or green candle in her honor and meditate using either a rose quartz over your heart or any green stone to activate your heart chakra center. Isolt is associated with white items and the divine white light so keep this in mind when you are looking to honor her this week.

Card #3 – Mawu, Mother Earth – “You are called upon to help with environmentalism.”

Mawu is a West African moon goddess who’s believed to have created all life with her husband sun god Liza. She helps those who call upon her to learn how to live in harmony with nature. She ensures that our needs are abundantly supplied without harming the planet. She heralds the message of being more mindful on how you use mother earth’s resources. Get involved in helping the environment heal. Do your part in your everyday life and participate in a mother earth healing ceremony. I find fascinating how this goddess came forward with the Divine Consciousness Chakra card, she is reiterating to you that you and Earth are interconnected; we are all part of that Oneness, part of the Divine.  We have to stop living for the me, we have to start seeing that if we do not take care of nature we are not taking care of ourselves. We are as much part of her as she is part of us. It is time to take the matter into our own hands and be the change we want to see. Take care of Mother Earth, the way she takes care of you! You can honor her this week by feeding birds, maybe spreading some flowering plant seeds by the side of road or just by walking barefooted on the ground. Or you can just take some time out of your busy day to journey to her and ask her how you can honor her and help her heal from all the damage we have caused.
