Awakening Into Infinity.

red snake celticHere is the final part of my snake story, as I read over what I wrote at the end of 2012 I can see with hindsight that I was pretty much spot on with the conclusions that I drew from my encounter with the reptilian realm.

With the chrissy whirl still going round and round I’ve had no time to research the significance of the snake, but it is a medicine that has come to me before and so I have some idea of its meaning for me. Snakes have the ability to unhinge their jaws and take in animals much larger than themselves, having taken this huge mouthful they then slowly but surely digest their food. I am learning a lot at the moment with this blog, for me getting started was the big mouthful and now as I am doing it I begin to make sense of what I am doing, understanding and integration slowly unfolding through the digestive juices of my mind and intuition.

This is also a time of transformation on a personal and global level, and this is probably the best known aspect of snake medicine. Letting go of the old is necessary in order to transform into new shapes just as the snake sheds its skin in order to be reborn. I am shifting from the old Kerry who was insecure, felt unworthy, and could not allow abundance to flow in her life, into a new improved model, like going from a broken down bomb to a sleek red Ferrari!

As I engage the gears of this new bio machine I feel the power within, and the life force flows through my being like sunshine glinting on the sea or a beautiful flower opening to the light. I feel enormous gratitude to the python for the message that it brought, it matters not that we are always this magnificent creature for we do forget how wondrous we are and need to be reminded over and over again, in a world that often tries to cover this burning truth.

And the reminders keep coming as I enter into the energy of 2015, the shadow will always be getting triggered if you are engaged with life. And there has been so much coming up for me, and I keep meeting it and clearing and my life continues to get better! I am really settling into my beautiful partnership with my gorgeous man, we have been in a love bubble for two but are beginning to expand that into something much larger. And part of that is me growing and evolving as an individual, we are spending a bit more time away from each other and that’s a good thing. It feels a bit strange at first when we have been together so very much, but I know that it will make our relationship even stronger in the long-term. And we are in for the long haul my Beloved and I.

Slithering Blissings: From Deepest Despair To The Brightest Of Joy!

snake-symbolI woke the following morning with things to do and no sign of the python so I opened the front door and left the connecting door closed hoping that the snake would take the opportunity to escape. There was no sign of it that day or the next and I began to hope that it had indeed slithered its way out of the house because I still had no idea what to do with the darn thing. I wasn’t frightened of it but I had no idea what to do with it, I knew that pythons are not aggressive or venomous but I didn’t really know how it would react if I tried to pick it up.

On the sunday evening I had been out all day and when I turned the light on for the front room lo and behold, there was the python, curled up on a pot plant crushing the life out of the poor thing. This was the closest to the door it had been, surely there was some way I could get it to go out the front door. I got a broom and tried poking it but the snake merely raised its head and looked at me with its tiny eyes, what to do? Then I had a brain wave, the pot plant was on a small table and so I pushed the table over to the door. I had to push the table half way out the door but the snake eventually got the idea and slid its way down onto the verandah and slithered away into the night, thank the Goddess, I had managed to solve the problem all by myself.

The Midsummer celebration in Ancient Gaul was called the Feast of Epona, named after a mare goddess who personified fertility, sovereignty and agriculture. She was portrayed as a woman riding a mare.

A good story to dine out on, but of course there is a deeper understanding that may be gleaned from this tale, the snake is a symbol rich in meaning and it came into the house for the Solstice 2012, very powerful medicine indeed! To find out the meaning for me look for my next post, Slithering blissings to you all…………………

Slithering blissings indeed! I was about to embark upon a year of incredible learning ushered in by snake medicine, culminating at the Spring Equinox in September 2013. I did not know then that a part of my journey was truly coming to an end. But before I finally came together with my soul mate there was pain and heartache which would help to strip away the last of what was in the way of my being able to see my own true value. And I have this blog which I published every day for almost a year to document my journey, yet another blessing amongst so many wonders and joys.

See you next week!

Power Supplies And Pythons: And The World Didn’t End After All!

power cutI had to call on my powers of trust and flexibility today when all the  power switches in my new house sit suddenly decided not to dispense power.  My lap top has a battery that is so addicted to electrical power it barely condescends to perform on just the battery alone. In the middle of organising music for the next Ecstatic Dance I was frustrated and a curse or two may well have slipped from my lips as it rapidly became clear that something somewhere in this sweet dilapidated house had shorted out the system.

????????????????????????????????????

My Beloved was not at home and so I called on a friendly neighbour who upon investigation informed me that water had got into the pump that has been supplying us with lovely rain water. He turned it off and hallelujah, I had electrical current flowing through all the necessities of life, fridge, computer, kettle and toaster! But left with town water full of fluoride and chlorine as my drinking water it is just as well that we travel around with our own water supply. A quick trip to the shops this afternoon and we once again had water fit to drink! It still amazes me that we allow our governments to poison our water but that’s a topic for another post.

So here I am in the house I spent nine weeks in two years ago and how different my life has become since then. It was here that I began this blog and here that a huge python came to visit on the eve of the Summer Solstice 2012. It was the beginning of my journey towards my Beloved and so here is part one once again:

There is a sequel to my story of the Solstice night last Friday that I would like to share with you now, I felt it deserved a post all to itself. I should begin by telling you about the night before that, when I came home to find objects in the house slightly moved around, and in the bathroom some things had been knocked over and broken. I could not for the life of me work out what on earth could have done this, I had a sense that something had come in through the window but had no idea what it was.

summer solsticeSo on the Solstice night I was in bed when I heard crashing sounds coming from the front room, I leaped out of bed and went rushing in to discover a huge python curling its way along the top of the shelves knocking things over as it went. The woman I am house sitting for does sandplay therapy and she had hundreds of little figures and objects which were now hurtling off the shelf in the wake of this slithering reptile, as a city girl I had never seen anything like it before in my life!

I had no idea what to do, the snake was obviously looking for a way out but it was heading away from the door and none of the windows in the room would open. There was also a smell of sewage and I cast around for the source of it only to find a huge pile of what I could only assume to be python poo, oh my goddess, letting go of the notion of sleep I set to and cleaned up the mess. The snake was still in the room and not looking like it had any intention of going out the door, in the end I had to go to bed with the connecting door to the rest of the house shut but I couldn’t leave the front door open so I had to let the whole thing go and hope that the morning would come with an answer to the question of what to do with the snake!

To find out what happened next stay tuned for my next post!spotted-python

Still no camera but my python was very similar to this one, imagine having this slithering around your home!

We Live In Exciting Times!

christmas house lightsSome of you may wonder where I have been lately, two Wednesdays have passed with no word from the vortex…………perhaps the words were sucked into the bright tinselly realms of Christmas time and New Year! It can be a challenging time of year for many but Yuletide stress is not something I can really claim, both my family gatherings were full of food, laughter and generally good cheer all round.

No the truth is that I am experiencing a strong reluctance to spend any time at all in front of my computer. It’s a feeling in my body that gives no reason for this, a visceral response that completely bypasses the so-called reasoning brain. At the same time I feel strongly called to continue writing posts, feels like I am being pulled in two directions. So with the madness of the festive season I  completely lost the plot and disappeared into the vortex of flashing lights and festive celebrations.

So am I back I hear you ask? The answer to that question is still under exploration as I attempt to navigate my way in what feels like a whole new chapter of my existence. I keep getting the sense of being on the brink of something huge and exciting, for myself but also for the larger community. These are end times that we are living in and there is a grand opportunity to create new stories for the new humanity that is being birthed at this time.

spiritual energy

The trick is to be in the flow of energy and to be able to respond to the sudden changes that are a feature of this huge transition that humanity is attempting to go through. My mobile life as a house sitter is a wonderful preparation for living moment to moment, trusting that there will always be somewhere for my Beloved and I to call home. Trusting that we can make our way in a world that often seems inimical to the deeper spiritual waters where we love to swim and play.

So I will do my best to meet the commitment of one post per week and we shall see where this new energy leads. As I sit here writing this I am looking out at green fields and a large brown cow that is scratching itself on a post. And yet I am in a suburban house about five minutes walk into the heart of town, another beautiful home that we are most privileged to be able to live in for a time. The phrase that comes to mind is that things can only get better, also the title of a dancy pop song by a band I’ve never heard of: D:Ream. You may want to put on your dancing shoes and take a spin as you listen to this one, enjoy!
