Serpentine helps you remain calm through the twists and turns of life. By soothing your heart with its green coloration, it helps you to raise your head off the ground and see where you need to go, and go there with ease. No need to panic or hurry. Move at your own pace, fully grounded and focused. So named after the markings found on this crystal, serpentine, when used in meditation will help you find your own inner wisdom, so you do not fall prey to the outer trappings of life or dramas that surround you. Stealth and steady progress is the name of the game. It helps to soothe the outer edges of irascibility and moodiness. It gives you a backbone of courage.
Found in an array of green colors, serpentine often carries splashes of purple Stichtite, and then may be called Atlantisite. It helps you access the ancient and timeless wisdom which is everpresent now. It helps you shed the old fears while you step into the new you. It is powerful and gentle at the same time, like the feminine energy that bathes the heart and encourages you to step forward in love. It is a stone to assist kundalini awakening and its energies help with the energy alignment in the spine.
Serpentine also connects you to the etheric realms where nature spirits may be contacted to assist you with your personal evolution. On a physical level, serpentine helps to heal skin ailments and gives a sense of general well-being and strength. It is an enlivening gift of Mother Nature and a messenger of peace … ssssssssssssssss.
Serpentine is a fascinating stone. Russian Serpentine, whether forest green or light green in color (as shown here), contains swirls and markings that may hold the energy of devas or elementals. Clearly visible and embellishing a piece in my own collection is the image of a dragon. The evolution of serpent symbology into the dragon has been well documented around the world, particularly in China and the British Isles.
Today, the serpent itself may be understood to represent power and wisdom and not solely categorized as an evil tempter to be cast to the ground. Most recently Serpentine of all varieties and origins has been connected metaphysically to the rising of kundalini energy and to the earthly energies of the elementals (the elementals are the creative beings who devote their lives and forms to hold the patterning manifested in our trees, plants and flowers). The elementals are so overlooked and little understood; Serpentine can assist our re-awakening of this connection, as well as to the elements themselves of earth, air, water and fire.
Serpentine of all varieties may be used to clear blockages and the chakras. The brighter green variety is a wonderful activator and cleanser. Serpentine is a wonderful stone to assist your journey to transcend lower energies and to raise your head and sights to the every expanding wisdom of this transformative Golden Age.
