This post is not about unicorns. So if you googled unicorns and landed on this page, I'm sorry. I couldn't exactly title this appropriately because snakes are less appealing than say, a unicorn. So if you did land on this page from googleland, stick with me. There is magic in snakes as well.
There is a cliché saying that signs are everywhere. All you have to do is pay attention. While this is true, the universe does gift us with signs every day, we often miss them or have stopped paying attention. I came to the realization that I was missing several of my signs after watching my son explore his environment. He noticed everything. Every sight, sound, smell, taste and texture. As we age we are conditioned to lose touch with the world around us, and the impact is detrimental.
Signs are like a gut feeling. When you get a gut feeling you know you are on something right. The right decision, the wrong place to be, whether someone has good intentions or not, etc. You literally get a gut reaction. What if there is an outside source giving you the same gut feeling? Wouldn't you want to know about it?
All you have to do is start paying attention. By now you should be asking, so what about the snakes? Lately the universe has been sending me snake messages. It all started with snake skin my son and I found on our morning walk. A couple of days later, when I was showing my parents the new fireworks store, I found a snake in the building that my dad and I had to remove. That very same day, my yard person informed me that there is a snake living in or around my yard and he watched the snake crawl up into the drain of my garage. And I am quite certain he is living in my garage. In addition, I have found two more snake skins on my walks.
One could argue that this time of year snakes are active as they prepare for winter and shed their skins. And they would be correct, however, I can't help but argue that this many snake encounters isn't normal or coincidental. One, maybe, five incidents? No.
So now the universe has my attention. What is the symbolism of snakes? Google it and this is what you will find.
Gobsmacked moment here. In my own personal journey I am working on owning my power as a healer, and I'm going through a major transformation both physically and spiritually. The message from the snake is clear, I am on the right path. It's my external gut feeling that what I am doing is in my highest good. Thanks for the validation, universe!
What are you struggling with in your life right now? Are you paying attention to the signs? They offer clarity that you can't always find in your own mind. Start paying attention.
Tell me about your strange encounters. Maybe it's with a unicorn?
