Red Crystal Serpent
Tone 12: Crystal - Complex Stability
Red Serpent is your Conscious Self - who you are and who you are becoming.
"I am the flint and tinder of the sacred fire,"
reads the meditation for Red Serpent. In the Great Mystery, flint and
tinder represent the instinctive combustion that initiates movement
in the physical body toward union with Spirit. When flint and tinder
are brought together, the spark of divinity awakens and ignites the
fire of your essence. Red Serpent invites the purifying spark of the
sacred fire, the kundalini, to align and integrate your body, mind and
spirit. Red Serpent can help you uncover apparent blockages in specific
chakras to clear an align them. If you are working on a process of purification,
invite Red Serpent to assist you.
This Mayan medicine can remove toxins,
rejuvenate and transform dis-ease. Red Serpent is also known by
the Maya as the kultanlilni, or kundalini, the energy that moves up
from the base of the spine and out through the crown chakra. There are
two aspects of this force, the ida and the pingala, representing its
male and female polarities. One of the ancient secrets of Red Serpent
is the activation of higher states of consciousness through balancing
these two polarities so that they dance within us as one. Another metaphor
for this serpent energy comes from the Mayan words luk umen tun ben
can, or "those absorbed by the serpent of the sacred knowledge."
When the seven chakras are fully activated, one experiences an enlightened
Use the body as a tool for transformation. Learn how to use passion and the senses as a means of access and alignment to higher consciousness. Follow your gut-level intuitions and instincts to make choices in the moment.
Be willing to look at issues you have concerning intimacy
and sexuality. Make sure that you are not separated from the dance of
passion that is in union with your divine nature. Sense your deeper
desire for union and intimacy. Red Serpent calls on you to awaken your
vitality, body wisdom, and passion for life.
Red Earth is your Higher Self &
Sit in simple relationship to the Earth, like a poet enraptured
in a forest. Be rooted where you are now. Out of synergistic centeredness,
you will receive your greatest desires and open to the full flowering
of the mystic power of the universe. This synchronization can be seen
as the alignment of your personal myth with the greater myth of our
times. Myth is the framework or "story" in which the truth
of the cosmos is revealed in symbolic form. Utilize it to catalyze your
Take off your shoes. Touch the one Earth. Find a place to dance with the sacred hoop of life. Contribute your vision as an awakened member of the global rainbow family!
Yellow Warrior, the galactic guide, is a mystic ferryman
on the return path to the stars; allow Yellow Warrior's staff to ferry
you to the spiraling vortex of cosmic consciousness. Yellow Warrior
is the grace of the descent of the dove. Embody the mystic gift of trust
in direct guidance. Through trust, you journey to the place of 'no time'
and limitless light. There you will undergo the transformations to embody
solar heart and mind.
The number for Yellow Warrior is sixteen, the number of unity with the cosmic foundation of resonant evolution. As you embody the ferryman's staff, you become anchored in your connection to cosmic consciousness. Holding within you the foundational steps of the trinity, you carry the "Christed one" into the world. As a living mystic, you are the conduit of the spiraling galaxies that creates a union with cosmic consciousness. Sixteen may also be seen as the beginning of another octave - a higher octave characterized by organic balance and the new Earth under your feet.
Trust in guidance is an essential attitude in accessing the position of the central pillar. Trust in Spirit to provide all you need, and trust that what is given will serve your highest evolution. Trust in the wisdom of the "Mind of Light curriculum." Trust in your inner voice, your feelings, your moment-by-moment guidance. This is Spirit's clear confirmation. Trust as an open vehicle for Spirit, your mystical intelligence, your divine guidance. Embody your ability to commune with cosmic intelligence.
Direct guidance, communication, and embodiment are the
key concepts contained in the staff. It is a symbol of learning to stand
in your full power and authority - learning to 'tune in' to galactic
intelligence so that transmissions are received effortlessly. This resonance
is created through embodying light. The ferryman is offering you his
staff. Plant it within yourself so that it becomes a blossoming tree
The energy of Blue Eagle asks you to believe in yourself and believe in your dreams and visions, no matter how they may be perceived by others. You are the eagle's vision.
One shadow of Blue Eagle is a loss of hope, excitement, or joy in your life. This can stem from a reaction to mass consciousness or from the precipitous state of the world. In your deep desire to effect change, you may feel overwhelmed in a vast ocean of consciousness that seems hopelessly enmeshed in issues of separation, limitation, and judgement. If so, remember that elements of this enormous field are often attracted to your personal dreamfield for healing. These duality constructs are deeply rooted on the planet. Don't be discouraged. The global mind is in the process of a profound transformation. As you heal these issues within yourself, you offer gifts of healing to the larger reality. Do not underestimate the power of your personal transformation and its effect on planetary mind: "Gaia, as you awaken, I heal myself. As I awaken, you are healed."
This wondrous pool of planetary consciousness is full of archetypal mysteries, hopes, dreams, and fears. Some beings may feel that their personal world is 'falling apart' as their lives expand into the larger dream. Sometimes this feeling manifests as hopelessness, which may even lead to a desire to leave the Earth. Remember, you are in human form for a divine reason! You have chosen this form in order to participate in the great miracle! Walk with ease in commitment to your destiny. Allow yourself to explore and play compassionately as a planetary server. You are the emissary of the great change.
In the shadow of Blue Eagle, you may also be so obsessed by finding your "purpose" that you miss seeing how simple it can be. Your purpose can be as simple as expressing love and light - and that is enough! Take heart. There are great gifts being offered for your participation in healing the global mind.
Another shadow of Blue Eagle is when your purpose as a planetary server becomes a messianic obsession, creating a 'rescuer complex'. This may also be seen in self-sacrificing behaviour, an inability to say no, or an attachment to rescuing others. In this shadow, your desire to serve needs to be tempered with self-nourishment and sustaining rest. If you neglect your personal needs and desires and do not allow time for joy and rest, you may feel depleted and lacking. Hold yourself in the same compassion as you hold the world. Strive to keep your personal needs in balance with planetary service. Fill your personal cup. Take loving care of yourself, and your cup will naturally overflow to empower your work with others.
Believe in yourself! Remember the purpose and commitment
you have in the larger pattern.
White Wizard is the Magician, whose powers are activated
by wisdom that emanates from the heart. Such wisdom is not the intellectual
understanding known in Western culture; it is the wisdom that comes
from an alignment of mind and heart. An open, trusting heart is a refined
tool of perception. Allowing yourself to 'not know' opens the door of
the mind to a deeper understanding of the universe. White Wizard asks
you to fully utilize this aligned mind to participate in magic.
Align your own will with divine will and your Essence Self. Be transparent, innocently allowing magic to come through you rather than needing to create it. Open to heart-knowing and limitless possibilties.
White Wizard is a tool of the light, a conduit for the work of Spirit. A wise magician is spontaneous and transparent, allowing magic to come in rather than trying to control it or make it happen. A magician dances the dance of love through offering gifts of freedom to others. This is real magic. Freed from the need to use power to manipulate or control, a magician uses wisdom to manifest liberation and love.
The harmonic wisdom of White Wizard is melody, the progression of signle tones within a composition. White Wizard symbolizes the sacred journey of your individual life. As a harmonic magician, you are a novel yet universal container for the expression of the Divine. While you play the melody of your journey's spirit song, the Creator provides the harmony.
Melody is to music what story line is to story. Utilize the elements you have chosen for exploration in your life - your gifts, talents, abilities, motivations, circumstances, and the other characters in your play. Orchestrate the most interesting and growth-engendering story line from this combination of possibilities. Understand that you are the player and the played in the melody in your life.
