The first time I danced with a serpent- I had fear running through me. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

There was so much fear-in anticipation -like a nervousness building inside my body-

That I finally decided just to go for it cause I knew that waiting was not going to make it any better.

Snakes- do bring up our fear- and their medicine is to teach you to how to work with it. ๐Ÿ

Fear and Snakes- do go together.

I was recently listening to a podcast discussing a study that showed that human's eyesight developed in the way that it did BECAUSE of snakes.

When we were more tree dwelling- and lived out in nature- We needed to be able to identify the camouflage patterns of a snake- For safety.

The way that I understood it is- The part of our brain that identifies a snake- Is also the part of our brain that makes decisions-out of fear- to keep us safe.

The first time I danced with a snake- I was shaking. ๐Ÿ

I had touched a snake before- but have it on my body- just me and the snake- And to dance with it- That was a whole other thing.

I wondered- if it was going to bite me- if I moved in the wrong way... I have to admit.

Well- it didnโ€™t bite me- or anyone else ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ

What happened-was intense. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I was able to work THROUGH my fear- AND at the same time- I felt like it activated sleeping powerful energy inside of my own body.

My arms and hands where it had wrapped around me tingled for hours after. I actually felt high, and euphoric. And activated! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

The second time I danced with a snake- I was clear that I didnโ€™t have a fear of snakes. ๐Ÿ

But it still brought up my fear none the less.

This was SO revealing! โœจ

The fear that was up- was the same fear that was standing between me and what I want to do in this life! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I could see it so clearly!

I realized that when the day comes that I can finally move with the snake- with out fear- Is when I have learned to move through that fear in my life!

They teach us- simply in their movement- ๐Ÿ

How to move fear that is stuck in our bodies.

WE have hips, and we hold old traumas, stuck energy and fear in there. โœจ

If the snakes had hips- they would be moving them- The snake- shows us the way to move our spines- to move the fear and stored trauma-

To massage it- in a way- with movement- and dance. ๐Ÿ __________

Priestesses of the Goddess have always been keepers of serpents. โœจ

The serpent is one of the oldest symbols of the feminine- Feminine energy, and sexuality.

And because of that-

The snake has been demonized- along with woman. ๐Ÿ

You know the stories.

Eve. Lilith.


I know now that dancing with a Serpent - Is an incredible way- to move through your own fear- AND access the feminine. ๐ŸŒน

This is one of the main reasons- that I am bringing snakes into our red tent next Friday night. ๐Ÿ

Itโ€™s a powerful experience. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

There is much more wisdom to be shared on this topic- so I will be interviewing the experts for you.

I will be interviewing Aimรฉe Delphyne Lissantheia who is leading our Serpent Initiation with Jessica Forrest who is a keeper of 8 snakes currently! ๐Ÿ

The interviews will be coming soon. (Iโ€™ll keep you updated)

Iโ€™m considering opening up the Serpent Initiation portion of the Red Tent training for those of you that can not make the whole weekend training. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ

It will be held on Friday, Dec 7th, 4-8pm here in Los Angeles.

If you feel called to thatโ€” please get in contact with me. ๐Ÿ™

Iโ€™d love to offer this to as many of you as feel called to it.

More to come- Stay tuned ๐ŸŒน
