Dream time has been SUPER active and potent in conscious awareness again, after a short lull of things not needing to come to awareness in waking life about them and not remembering them upon waking in the morning like I normally do, even if I had during the night if I awoke. This to include another surge of dreaming about so many people I know, whether met in person or not. Collective stuff is swirling hugely with major transformation happening for all. Yet this last Friday, 1/20, I had quite a potent dream again with snake at the forefront, which felt both personal and collective since it happened to be on the night of the inauguration and before the next day of marches across the states.
I’ve been experiencing myself more and more as a transmitter, so to speak, but now taking place in a more empowered and conscious way than it used to be the first part of my life. In this way, it does not affect or trigger me, but I remain a detached observer and channel transmuting energies.
It’s all very fascinating, more so because I am aware of the evolution of this and it not tormenting me or confusing me as it did when I didn’t have my Pisces fish in balanced grasp. That tug of two fish swimming in opposite directions can be challenging, but also provides the path to a Middle Way.
Anyway, Friday night’s dream was fascinating to me as well. I hadn’t had time to share more in depth about it until now.
I have dreamed of snakes often and shared of them before like in this post: A Little Full Moon Snake Dream Activation, but this one was very different again and involved blue snakes and two dreams converging.
The first dream found me in bed and finding a snake skin at the end by my feet in the covers on top of the bed. I knew where there’s a skin there must be a snake and so I searched the room to find the snake. The room itself was unique as it was both indoors and outdoors with a floor of grasses, bushes and rock where there would otherwise be flooring or carpet. I found the snake in the bordering tall grasses of the perimeter of the room and it was beautiful.
It was a lighter to medium blue color with medium to darker blue marking and smaller in size. The first thing that came to me was “blue cornflower snake,” which I remembered upon waking.
Then my dad shows up and it was unlike him to approach a snake, although would think it beautiful, and may have connotations about it. But my dad behaves differently and magickally. He goes closer and very intentionally towards it putting his hand out even closer, less than a foot away. I tell him to be careful because it is a very poisonous snake, but he edges closer with his hand with peace and centeredness and the snake for a moment slowly pulls his neck back as if to strike, but instead does not.
He gently leans in closer, as if mesmerized and in communion with my dad and his hand. They are in perfect harmony and as if my dad has charmed the snake with his balanced energy.
I then wake up and tell myself to remember this dream and the name of the snake that came to me, as I didn’t feel like getting up and writing anything down.
I then go back to sleep and the dream continues. I don’t ever remember this happening even if I want it to, or at least not that I consciously remember.
The dream continues with the memories I intended but shifts into a new version of the dream as an add-on.
Again, I find another skin and go searching for the snake that shed it. But before finding the snake a blue gila monster walks across the center of the room and through the grasses with slow deliberate steps. I am only needing to see it and then my attention goes back to finding the snake I’m aware of being there.
This time I find it under the corner of the bed where the mattress is caving down inside the bed frame revealing it below. It is again a beautiful blue snake, much like the other, but much larger…like a boa.
I stand straddling the corner of the bed and this area that is open revealing the snake below, but I start to sink lower and lower, caving in toward the snake and he pulls back again like the other, but does not strike. He is inches from my ankles and feet, but again we seem to be in harmony together. (Ankles are connected to Aquarian energy and feet to Piscean energy….both very strong for me in my astrological chart).
This is all I remember, but seemed like I got all of the important parts to bring back into waking life for sure to this layered and potently symbolic dream.
When I woke I started researching blue snakes….there are quite a few – Blue Racer Snakes, Blue Coral Snakes, Eastern Hognose Snake, and yes, even Blue Corn Snakes….and more.
No blue cornflower snakes, at least that I could find, but either that was how I interpreted it, or it was because the “cornflower” part was significant to remember too for symbolism sake.
There is so much one could interpret from this dream, especially given symbolism of everything, and I won’t go into all of the possibilities or full personal interpretation I have been piecing together, but will bring to light a few things, as I always find it helpful to share how we can figure out the meaning for ourselves of things by looking into our lives with honesty, doing a little bit of online researching on our own, looking at what’s going on in and around us, the collective field of experience, etc.
The first smaller snake I find to represent my inner child, on a personal level…and the little girl me. The communion in harmony with my dad felt like a new layer to our relationship has been activated and my making peace and harmony with the old male that is now in process of transforming. That I’m taking back my power in terms of the male and the father role in my life and equality is taking place here, not to mention I am now bringing forth a new empowered and balanced male through my life that the snake skin shares I have shed.
The larger, boa-like snake, being the new me and transforming my Pisces and Aquarian aspects of myself – I have Sun and Mercury in Pisces, as well as Jupiter and Venus in Aquarius.
And we are in the Aquarian Age, having transitioned out of the Piscean Age, so there is much transformation afoot – no pun intended. 😉
It also speaks to me about my dad going through his own personal transformations with himself in relation to this and coming more into balance with his divine feminine parts.
And then I see a collective symbolism of the shifts taking place and the potentials for us all where the male and female energies are finding their way slowly to greater balance through all of these turbulent and transformational times that are shaking up things and creating opportunity for us on a bigger level even though temporarily seem like something completely different.
The latter due to the tie-in with the inauguration that calls to mind these specifics people have been warring over and having great torment about emotionally, which is bringing rise to new perspectives and more unified ways of seeing things through greater compassion to understand one other…or at least that’s the opportunity. My dream presented a hopeful outcome.
And hope is present with the reference to the cornflower, although this is a flower that carries very dramatic and mixed symbolism over time…this is the one thing that stands out to me the most in all that I researched.
There are references to its fragility, but being quite a courageously determined plant that can withstand harsh elements and still thrive where other plants cannot.
It can be traced back to ancient times and old traditions, including Ancient Egypt where it was connected to life and fertility, reanimation and resurrection.
All parts of the plant have been used medicinally and according to Greek mythology when Achilles was wounded by a poisoned arrow, the wound was healed by applying cornflower plants. Interestingly that poison in the arrow was said to come from Hydra, usually depicted as a huge poisonous water snake, but interpreted as a giant slug. In Christianity, slugs were associated with the devil, just as snakes have been, and the cornflower remedy became a symbol of Mary and Christ, often found in Christian fresco depictions.
And there’s the energy of tenderness, reliability, fidelity, and power, sovereignty, and majesty throughout time that came to be linked with cornflower as well.
And there has also been complicated layers to it, as Bernhard Weidinger, a Vienna historian shared, “It was the German Kaiser Wilhelm’s favourite flower, and was used by pan-German nationalists in the 19th Century.”
“Then between 1934 and 1938, when the Nazis were a banned party in Austria, it was the secret symbol they used to wear in order to recognise each other.”
And the Freedom Party whose color is blue, wears cornflowers.
Brings light to my thoughts on a collective transformation in process with these paradoxes of meaning.
But still I focus on “hope” in light of it all, and potential that could unfold with our conscious efforts.
Blue is a color of peace, calm, trust, communication…it is also the color of water and sky – water and air elements – and of the throat and third eye chakras…in this case more emphasis on the throat by the color I saw in my dream, but connecting with the third eye with the darker blue markings. This bringing focus on a new level of inspired and intuitive self expression, communication, song and sound…all things feeling relevant for me and my focuses, but also in the greater landscape.
Air and water elements are bringing mind and heart together in balance as well, male and female governed energies, and a greater fluidity and ease of flow with change, abundance, and expansion.
There is an element of healing help the snake’s presence brings to the primal parts within us….our origins.
There was nothing negatively felt in the dream, nor any pervading fear, although I’d stated caution to my dad when he went close, but I did not overreact or try to intervene or panic. It was from a place of knowing this was out of character for him and that I didn’t know if he knew how to handle the situation, and yet he did.
I have long through my life worked on healing my throat chakra, empowering my voice, and speaking up for myself and voicing my uniqueness…not being afraid to express who I am, share my ideas and beliefs, despite anyone including my family or dad potentially thinking certain things of me. After all, he is a Virgo, my opposite, and my role has been to temper these opposites within myself, while remaining authentic to me rather than follow in his footsteps. And yet, he had many positive things to teach and help me to integrate into my own version of new male energy…something by my own example directly relates to his own journey too.
It also speaks to how sound has become a pervading element to my life through both my voice, song, sound channeling, singing bowls, and frequencies (recently gifting myself for my birthday two quartz crystal singing bowls that I knew I had to have that are a binaural beat theta wave pair – talk about potent balancing and invoking conscious dream, receptivity and opening a gateway to all things watery).
Snakes are particularly connected to this as well, not just the blue color that showed up connecting to the throat and ear and telepathy….they don’t have eardrums or external ears or openings like we do, but do have tiny bones in their head that conduct sound and allow them to hear low frequency sounds and sense vibrations traveling through Earth.
The blue gila monster also felt very potent to show up (it is one of two truly venomous lizards), as I had never had this before and didn’t know of its energy other than its transformative reptilian connections of essence I’m aware of. In looking more into gila monster it supported these things as I learned it teaches us to stand strong in what we believe and to protect that which is ours. It also teaches of the rhythm of life and maintaining balance and flow, but keeping determined and quiet about things in your journey while in process, preserving your energy, not overextending (gila monsters spend up to 95% of time undergroound and can go without eating for a year), are about survival, strength, and healing and connected with masculine energy.
And of course snakes are hugely transformative and healing in their wisdom, awakening creative forces, intuition, perception, and life force. Connected with the Sun and golden light, there is great alchemy with snakes that brings vitality and renewal to our understanding of our wholeness.
One of my spirit guides is Rainbow Serpent Teacher, which is why snake is always around and I wear a snake upon my right hand and wrist as a sacred tattoo and had a ring made as a serpent with a reminder mantra from this guide of my engraved inside of it.
There is a link to the Great Mystery, cosmic consciousness, and shamanism with snake energy – again very active and showing up in greater ways for me, personally, right now, including my creation of the pieces I’m told to make including wands, scepter, and staves channeling through.
But this is happening on a grander, collective scale where things are all coming to the surface for us to integrate and no longer suppress or deny.
The snake guides us and acts as guardian to those that embrace its energy, helping us to travel to sacred places and retrieve parts of ourselves on a cellular level and the hidden knowledge that lies within.
The skins of course are about shedding as a ritual to rebirthing and spiraling into new levels of awareness and being.
A potent dream for sure and perhaps it “sheds” some light on something within your own experience, or inspires some extra hope within the chaos to help keep you grounded and centered.
Yesterday we traveled on the Trans-Canada Highway to our home for the next full week in Edgewater, British Columbia just minutes from Kootenay National Park and Radium Hot Springs. Journeying this route provided opportunity to see the amazing wildlife crossing structures and fencing implemented here since 1996 on nearly 51 miles of highway, which is the longest on-going research and monitoring program of this nature in the world. It was such an incredible reflection of more conscious awareness and compassion for how our choices affect the whole.
I wasn’t aware of this project until Dave told me about it and that we’d be seeing it on our drive, although always wondered with all of my travels why no measures are taken other than lowering speed limits to help wildlife that we’ve taken land and migration patterns away from with our roads and building.
We both loved this and I snapped some photos of the fencing and one overpass we crossed under which was cool to see since there are only 6 of these. We also journeyed over a few tunnel underpasses of which there are 38 of these.
I love that this came about not just thinking of how expanding from two lanes to four on the highway could benefit people traveling it, but that simultaneously they thought of how to minimize effects on surrounding wildlife and to curb the high rate of wildlife mortality and wildlife-vehicle collisions.
I feel this collective way of looking at things and how our choices will affect the greater whole, which includes all of life, is so refreshing and one we will continue to see with shifts we are moving more into.
While disrupting the animals in general isn’t such a great thing in my opinion since we are taking away their normal migration patterns and routes creating dangers they didn’t once have to face, at least it’s refreshing to see more thought put into helping them and living more harmoniously with less impact.
Everything is, and is in, an evolution.
But I do love seeing more conscious awareness about how to find better ways to live in harmony with all of life.
This conscious highway was a result of scientists and transportation planners looking into ways to create a better situation and they made it top priority to continue to monitor and track animal movement.
The solution they came up with includes nearly 8 foot tall sturdy, quality fencing along both sides of the highway, and wildlife under and overpasses to connect the vital habitats by allowing crossing access.
The overpasses are quite cool, as they’ve been created to match the landscape around with trees, grasses, and vegetation to make a natural bridge for them.These are also designed so that the animals can’t see the highway when crossing.
Each individual overpass cost over a million dollars each.
Now that’s compassionate investing.
Motion sensitive cameras are set up to monitor the success of these implementations and to track the effects it is having.
You can read 10 quick facts about the highway wildlife crossings at the link below, which includes this one that deserves big yay’s:
“Highway fencing in Banff National Park has reduced wildlife-vehicle collisions by more than 80% and, for elk and deer alone by more than 96%.”
Here’s the link:
The drive was gorgeous and infused more hope and belief in the compassion within humanity to try to find ways to return things to greater balance and harmony.
We did actually see one deer inside the edge of the fencing and I smiled knowing she was safe.
I also was feeling back in my energetic flow merging with nature abound after leaving the big city and had gratitude for this more conscious merging I saw around me in reflection.
Change is always happening, even if you’re not aware of it.
It occurs naturally and so change is not something you engage by force.
It happens when you embrace conscious awareness of the things not working in your life and become willing to let it go.
Then allow things to change in their own naturally aligned timing, as you take the steps forward in the supportive direction of the change.
Step out of the need for ego to run the show, and allow your higher self to guide the way.
Instead, engage ego in asserting yourself consistently to take actions that support your heart guidance and intuition.
Relax into patient alignment and then you’ll flow by following the cues, rather than draining yourself energetically “trying” to make things happen.
If you block or try to control the flow of energy in any way that’s when you experience less vitality and feel depleted of energy.
This not only ages us, but creates chronic physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy blocks that wear us down and create more challenges.
To increase aliveness, while nurturing and cultivating the changes in your life, it’s key to trust yourself and listen for the truth that lies within you.
Each and every time you doubt that, you experience less and less of a vibrant life and less magickal synchronicity.
When you allow energy to move through you with flow by trusting, listening, supporting, and following your intuition, you create greater overall well-being and draw in more aligned experiences, less challenge, and more dynamic energy that constantly renews itself with greater invigoration.
~Inspired this morning by something I read from Shakti Gawain
In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love. ~Eckhart Tolle
This quote and what is transpiring collectively, reminded me of this song. I love the visual journey of the video accompanied by the pure and enchanting voice weaving a story that feels to activate a remembrance.
For those of you who like words, here are the lyrics to “Sky Sent” by Anael and Bradfield:
Et miratur omnis terra
Benedictus qui venit
De celeste armonia
How to begin such a disclosure?
So many years and over our heads
Led to assume there was no reason
Left in the dark to conjure instead
Search knows no end in hearts of believers
Faith inhabits the soul of mankind
Great men of the truth have uncovered answers
With this, our destiny will be defined
Sky sent, crossing time to tell the future
Guide our way, it’s a long road
Sky sent, through the frosty winter of dissent
Will we forge ahead?
ii. The Plan
All of your life you’ve been waiting
What you’ve known is alive
Carrying gifts that will change this world
Things that amaze and defy
An energy source for tomorrow
A model for clearing the air
And every country a partner free
Sharing and lending a hand for this plan
So into these unchartered waters
That one day to travel through time
Coping with damage inflicted
Needs some instant and radical strides
Beginning by sharing the knowledge
And openly admitting the lie
So every man who is fond of peace
Can consciously make up his mind
For this plan…
Seek your sanctuary in this place
It’s an allegory to embrace
Try your telepathy, send your grace
It’s all vibratory, you’ll engage…
iv. Crossing Time
Love is the key if skies are to welcome
Goodwill among men the only reply
Blessed, each of us here to witness this opening
Saught since the beginning of time…
Sky sent, crossing time to tell the future
Guide our way, it’s a long road
Sky sent, through the frosty winter of dissent
Will we forge ahead?
Will we form consent?
And here is the journey:
“Life is fundamentally a journey of consciousness, a journey of growing awareness.”
“… consciousness is an ever-unfolding, deepening, and expanding process with no end point. We are infinite and complex beings, and our human journey involves not just a spiritual awakening, but the development of all levels of our being – spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical – and the integration of all these aspects into a healthy and balanced daily life.”
With today’s Full Moon in Virgo (Sun in Pisces) illuminating things into our conscious day-to-day experience, we have the ability to bring balance and synergy to both the spiritual (imaginative/dreamy/watery Pisces) and practical (discerning/disciplined/earthy Virgo). This can assist us in integrating the energy (utilizing all of our Chakras) so that we harness our manifestation abilities with heart-full clarity, in service to the highest good of all. Creative Manifestation at its best!
Coming into this Earth plane of existence entails a synthesizing of subtle and more dense energies. We are influenced by vibrational energies that can take adjusting to, when we drop into physical form. And coming from a multi-dimensional experience, this offers a wide experiential array of possibilities, as well as possible challenges if we get stuck in the collective unconsciousness that the dense reality can generate in many – weighing more heavily on the ability of some to expand into remembering their divinity and potentials.
It takes an incredible amount of focus, courage, and commitment to keep your faculties about you so that you can foster a consistent level of awareness and presence while you are moving through the enormous and varied field of energetic vibrations that are abound. It can be challenging to maintain your own energetic experience – personal frequency, as the tendency is to match vibrations that trigger some conditioning within us. Since everything is a vibration of energy, like attracts like.
And with energetic magnetic forces, expressing as charged vibrations/particles such as solar flares and gamma rays we are being showered with, everyone is getting an extra bombardment of galactic gifts that are influencing humanity’s consciousness evolution. And these also will have varied and relative influences on each individual, resulting in a variety of shifts on any or all levels of experience, in response to the geomagnetic and electromagnetic forces.
This is resulting in DNA shifts and activations in the genetic codes, know it or not, where the physical body is experiencing dynamic transformation in chemical, accelerated changes towards higher frequency vibrations. And this is enabling many, who may have not consciously experienced things like energy, to suddenly start sensing things on a whole new level than they have, or to experience the growing pains of this recalibration.
All of this to remind us that we are simultaneously a unique self, as well as a multidimensional being of Oneness. And it is happening whether you are aware of it and welcome it, or not.
This is the cosmic alchemy of humanity and Earth that is unfolding into a crystalline transformation.
And this can present fears and the tendency to block what is happening, which ultimately can result in challenge. It is each individual’s choice as to how you want to ride the change and there is no wrong or right way. However, if you would like to take a more active role and perhaps are not happy with the experiences you are having, then you could choose to engage the process more actively.
This is where becoming a conscious alchemist comes into play. We can each choose to engage our daily processes to the degree we are willing to and/or are ready for.
As today’s Full Moon brings the awareness of harmonizing our physical and spiritual in partnership, we can remember that this is available to us at all times and will result in optimizing our experiences when we dance in this balance. Utilizing the gifts we have, on all levels, is what lays dormant within us to unwrap and utilize. We embody everything we need, as multidimensional beings, yet these keys within us have not be remembered and awakened. Part of this is what is taking place with the solar flares and such, and the other part is our willingness to activate to the level of acceleration being presented.
You can do this by engaging yourself courageously to face and work with the limiting beliefs, old stories and patterns, and unresolved feelings you have, as every time you shift and transform an old, limitation, every cell responds with illuminating activation. The more you can do so each day, this will begin to release the constrictions that cause challenges because of the inner turmoil and fight against the shifts that are inevitably taking place. And when more of you lights up in greater, conscious experience of your wholeness, the more you are able to access your instant manifestation abilities to co-create your world with creative love and empowerment.
And when you engage yourself with more conscious empowerment of all of your parts, and realize that when you open these parts that you also release the divine blueprint keys that activate the alchemist you are at the heart of hearts, you then become a portal for change, yourself. And as you embrace the embodiment of this with more consciousness, you directly support others to be able to more easily do the same.
So, as the Full Moon illuminates the sky today, imagine yourself inviting more of that conscious and illuminating light energy into every fiber of your being. Invite a partnership of awareness with your body – remember that we are here for a reason and it’s not about leaving the physical body and experience behind, as we try to “ascend”.
When we realize that this is an experience of integration and that all of our parts working together creates the miracles that we innately are, then we will come to experience the consistency of alchemy and manifestation, rather than the bursts of it that we access intermittently.
These times can actually be viewed as necessary to enable humanity as a whole to transform into a comprehension of the truth of our oneness with each other and with all of Creation.
