and the messages they bring you


You are a sexual being. Embrace it, enjoy it, and explore it. Know that it is safe for you to do so.

If Snake has slithered into your life…

Transmutation is the key word here. The shedding of old skin and emotions and transforming them into something bigger and better. If Snake winds itself into your life know that change is in the wind and that you are at the center of it all as the catalyst. Make sure that your intentions are clear and that you have clear a clear sense of the direction that you need to strike out in. Snake is letting you know that these changes are safe and that there is no need to fear them.

You are also being reminded to stay connected to the self through observation of both the tiny vibrations in the earth, and the warmth and smells of the air and sky. When we learn to connect with our surroundings we can continue on the path of growth, and discard the trappings of the past.

If Snake is your Animal Spirit Totem…

People with snake as their totem are often finding that they are going through constant changes in their lives that they usually move through smoothly. They have a natural ability to balance energy and often Snake totem people are gifted healers.

You are very charming in social situations, and very good at holding people’s attention, there is something mysterious about about your gaze, your intensity, and your ability to sense what other’s are thinking or feeling. Tied in with this charm is a confidence and self assurance that many people find alluring. Snake people can slither in and out of conversation with ease and grace, and are often flexible and open minded.

If Snake comes into your Dreams…

To see a snake or be bitten by one in your dream could mean that your hidden fears and worries are coming back to bite you. It could also be alerting you to something in your life that you are not aware of or that has not yet surfaced. Alternatively, the snake may be seen as phallic and thus symbolize temptation, dangerous and forbidden sexuality. In particular, to see a snake on your bed suggests that you are feeling sexually overpowered or sexually threatened. You may be inexperienced, nervous or just unable to keep up. If you are afraid of the snake, then it signifies your fears of sex, intimacy or commitment. The snake in your dream may also be referring to a person around you who is callous, ruthless, and can’t be trusted. As a positive symbol, snakes represent healing, transformation, knowledge and wisdom. It is indicative of self-renewal and positive change.

To see only the skin of a snake in your dream could mean that you are being protected from illnesses.

Occasionally a snake without any eyes or without a head could signify that you are ignoring the danger in a situation. Alternatively, it could also mean that you are going to be blindsided by something.

  • This info on snake medicine really helped me clarify and become more aware of the changes that are currently happening in my life and how to best embrace them. I have been reading about animal totems for many years now. The way you explain snake medicine is very much appreciated, it is easy to understand and utilize. The information is authentic, intriguing and practical. Blessings and Gratitude!

    • Thanks… it’s always good to hear that this website is helping others find their way.

      • Thank you for your reply Silken Raven. Yes, my cat had found a gardner snake a few weeks ago and was sitting by it, enjoying its company. It was beautiful for me to see them together, but I am sure the snake was not as pleased! The cat didn’t harm it and eventually the snake slithered away. The cat lead me to the snake medicine. A blessed experience. Animals are amazing.

  • I had a strange dream of a snake eating a pickle. I wasn’t afraid of the snake but I thought it was very odd. I been trying to interpret but I’m not finding anything that really resonates…. The last time I dreamed of a snake my life transformed although the transformation wasn’t a smooth easy ride it was well worth it because I’m a much better person. So now that I’m seeing a snake again I’m like oh my its time to hold on to your seat belt you’re about to take a ride but the eating of the pickle is confusing me.

    • Hello Jade: I suspect that the Snake dream is certainly heralding in a new transformation. This one I suspect will have a lot to do with your sexuality. Part of the human growth process is coming to terms with our sexuality on all levels – the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual levels. For women this usually becomes significant in the pre-menopausal stages of our lives during which we usually attempt to get comfortable with our sexual fantasies.

  • Thank you for this information. I have a book called Animal Wise that I usually consult, but I wanted to hear/read a little more. I am in the midst of a very major undertaking in my life, and it has been fraught with setbacks. I re-”stumbled” upon videos of Esther Hicks channeling Abraham and much of what was being said resonated with me. Then, one day, I came across info where Abraham was accused of being of the Reptilian race. That morning, the reptile references began and did not stop. Two hours later, my pastor spoke at length about the area of the brain considered to be reptilian – that same day I spoke with him about my current situation and truly felt like I was shedding skin. The next day, I “stumbled” upon an article about a tribe from Africa who believed they were from the Reptilian race; I went into the store and at the checkout counter was a pamphlet with snakes on the cover; I couldn’t sleep for snakes on my mind – the references were so many I decided there had to be a message. Even today, I read an article about a family whose house was overtaken by snakes. Thank you again for providing this information; it is quite apropos at this time in my life.

  • And I forgot to mention that a water moccasin got into my building ( a building I am transforming into a school) from the courtyard.
    And the next day, my brother-in-law wanted my shoe size so that he could buy me some moccasin boots (okay, that was reeaally freaky) :wink: :grin: :roll:
