Snake medicine is with us.
We can pretend our skin is not shedding,
We can attempt to remain underground, curled up and quaking,
We can refuse to digest our life and suffer indigestion.
Or we can embrace the magic of our transmutation–
Chew on our life, swallow and savor it,
Slither out of our skin and leap out of ruts with passion,
Swirl into new experiences and dance,
Then feel the sun on our skin and dream.
– Gloria Rohlfs 2011
I’m sharing this, this Sunday, as I lean into some very big questions and know that some powerful change is underfoot for me. I’m resisting much of it and that is not serving. So instead, I seek to follow the wisdom of this poem and the snake shedding its skin with no resistence. Surrender… it is the way…
Nothing stays the same
save the heart of Mystery,
where all are held safe.
– excerpt by Mimi Foyle, 2011
Big Love to all who are feeling these energies and changes… Big Love.
(and thank you to WeMoon 2013 Calendar for these gifts of wisdom this morning.)
