The Snake is the spine. Staying awake, aware and free in the spine, and maintaining a fluid movement of all the little articulations at each vertebra, we can find our connection back to health and to our authentic selves ... Back through our evolution to the ocean and the WAVE. Think of Belly-dancing, trees blowing in the wind, the sea, the seasons as waves of the year and so the snake was the first creature to develop bones and the spine has followed the wave up onto the land. She expresses freedom, joy, beauty and love. Listening and responding to our inner snake we can find healing for our pain and sadness, our grief and loss. She is life. She is subtle releasing, unwinding. She reconnects us to the soul, to our true source of life.
