Stagnant Snakes Awaken

This post is for my 04/28/23 Group Distance Reiki Session. If you are reading this at any time please know the energy and message, as it resonates, is perfect for you.

Before thinking of anything I went for the feet. Let the energy of grounding encompass you. Breathe into the Earth through your body.

A focus on release. Washing away. But a reminder: Anytime we clear something out, let something go, we want to set an intention for that we’re bringing into that space. Something new.

I held some attention at the feet while widening my awareness. There felt to be a tension at the top of the chest wall. A barrier. Like an umbrella.

The idea of shedding. Which came with imagery of both sloughed off snake skin, as well as teeth falling out from the right side of the mouth.

More imagery of snakes: two snake heads conversing. Almost like sock puppets. They are holding the energy within the chest. They have shortened bodies. Underdeveloped. But they are ready to roam free, and with that grow and stretch out. As they are released to the Earth mountains grow up from the chest and shoulders, into the ears.

Following the central column I felt the energy that had been stuck in the chest and shoulders was related to the Sacral Chakra. As it began flowing upward and through the mountains I invited support from the nearby Heart and Throat. The energy intensified greatly, and continued flowing through these points, bubbling out and encircling the full body.

I held some time solely at the Heart. At points called to bring back in the feet as well. The snakes were staying nearby, on the ground close to the feet, but exploring. At one point in working with the Heart the right arm felt a little crippled, from the forearm down. Weak and slowly responsive. I crossed the wrists in front of the Heart, with the right inside, and proceeded.

I noticed my hands were now holding the top of the chest where the energy first felt blocked.

There was some energy bubbling behind the eyelids, and into the 3rd Eye. Perhaps a movement from physical vision into inner sight.

It felt like there was a disconnect at the surface of the facial skin. Perhaps an issue with self image. I saw a bust of Cleopatra or Tutankhamun coming through from beneath and overwriting the imagery with their own sculped and colorful perfection. This led back to the idea of sloughing off old skin and refreshing into something new.

These sculptures now a glowing field of light, radiating out.

Hints about nutrition from minerals also came through as part of this transformation. Especially for the lips. With cooling mint for the nose and eyes. A connection to sand for the serpents, and to slough away. A sulfur scent came through, then driftwood.

Suddenly a calming relaxation set in… almost as a wave of exhaustion like with laying down after long standing. I held this as a sense of completion, and turned to the cards.

From Sandra Anne Taylors “Energy Oracle Cards” deck, in asking for coming guidance, we received #43 MAN HOLDING A COIN, inverted. An image and full description is included below, but some of you may already be quite familiar with it, as this has made a near-quarterly appearance in these group sessions (always inverted!). The crisscrossing at the Heart just came back to mind as a powerful aspect of today’s session, so see if that idea, movement or imagery brings anything additional in regard to this card. Cool water for recentering and grounding. Thrive.

Donations accepted here, if you’re inspired and able.

Today's Card

from Sandra Anne Taylor’s ‘Energy Oracle Cards’ deck


Male Connection in Money, Health, or Value Reversed

This card reversed reveals that you could be acting against your own best interests where money or health matters are concerned. You might be spending a bit too much or simply not be conscious enough about what’s really important. If that’s the case, become more aware of your choices and priorities, and bring more discipline to your life.

This card reverse could also be warning of a self-absorbed or dismissive man who may be out for his own advancement – even at the cost of your own. Be conscious of the critical or demanding men around you, and always remember that you alone determine who has the real power in your life.

Affirmation: I determine my own destiny. I take financial action and am receiving wonderful assistance from those around me.
