Animal Totem of the Month ~ Snake ~

Has Snake slithered into your world today?

If so, you are being asked to undergo a major transformation. Are you willing to shed your old skin? Are you willing to let go of people, places, and things that no longer have a place in your life? Snake will help you make the grand transformation, then slide into a new life that's brimming with possibility.

This month seems to be all about transformation in a big way. The snake is all about transformation. I learned recently from my Animal Speak book (by Ted Andrews) that if a snake decided that it wanted to hold on to it's shedding skin, that it would actually die from suffocation.

I also learned that the snake is about healing, for without the healing aspect of shedding the old, we would not be able or prepared to do so. Transformation is about not only shedding the old, but about healing our old beliefs, issues, hurts, etc. so that we CAN let them go to be transformed by the Angels.

As we move forward from this very intense cycle of clearing out the old, we must also focus on bring in the new. Much in the same way that as the old skin of the snake is being shed, there has already been a new, softer skin being formed underneath, so that when the old is ready to be shed, it can be done so with grace, ease and beauty.

Then we fight and resist the letting go, that we create the pain and uncomfortableness of changes. It can always be an easy and joyous process, but ONLY if we allow it to be so. When we do that, then change, believe it or not, can be a whole lot of fun!

Ask the Snake to teach you how you can glide through the letting go with joy and laughter, and you will be shown, if you allow space for it.
