Lightning and Thunder

secretsoftheserpent

Lightning and Thunder are symbols that have been mistakenly given a bad reputation. Most believe it has to do with a negative state of mind or the physical state of the world. I’ve seen researches say it symbolized chaos, trouble and difficult times. Religions will tell you it symbolizes the power of god. It was his power to strike fear into all and kill his enemies. Why the hell would an all-powerful god need to strike fear in people? Why would he have enemies? In truth, lighting and thunder symbolize the power in us. The hidden power in ourselves.

The Soul Medicine of Suicide and Death In Dreams

By Amy Brucker

Years ago, one of my clients was struggling with her life. She was unhappy because she couldn’t make friends or meet a loving partner to share her life with.

During one of our sessions she told me she dreamed she was going to commit suicide. In the dream, she was standing on the scaffolding of a building. She was visibly rattled, wondering what in the world it meant.

I could understand her concern, but my first response was to say,”Yay! Congratulations.”

Time for a Change

While there is always the possibility that death in dreams is a literal premonition, it’s usually about a transformation that is so complete the person going through it will be radically altered. The old self is dying, or will die, or needs to die, so the new self can be reborn.

Similarly, suicide–in waking life AND in dream life–is a call to transform, to consciously kill off the part of your life that is no longer needed so you can create your new self.

I’m not talking about killing the physical part of you. This is NOT about literal death of the physical body.

It’s about eliminating a habit or trait that is no longer needed so you can create new habits or traits that are better suited to your health and wellness.

A Sign You’re Ready (or Not) to Transform

If your soul is ready to shift it might send you a dream of death. The death of someone or something, or even yourself.

But the feelings you’re experiencing in the dream are the key to everything.

Does your dream self feel anxious about the death? Then it’s likely you’re feeling anxious about the transformation process.

Do you feel nervous? Fear? Joy? Indifferent? Blindsided? Any feeling in the dream is likely a reflection of your waking life feeling, a feeling you may or may not be aware exists. The dream is there to help you process your emotions.

So what do you do if you, a loved one, or a client is dreaming of death?

Reflect on the accompanying emotion and explore ways to address these so you can create a more fluid and fulfilling transformation.

When I work with clients, I listen to their dream and help them explore the meaning. That’s where most dreamworkers stop, but I go much deeper. I craft original soul medicine through a combination of soul constellation, flower essence remedy, and energy shifting to help my clients embody their dream and transform whatever it is they are experiencing. It’s far more effective than simple dreamwork and it creates profound shifts.

The client of mine who dreamed she committed suicide decided to move to a smaller town and build a new home. She’s much happier now, living with the love of her life.

Dreams of death and suicide are invitations to release that which no longer works so you can make room for something more aligned with your soul’s wishes. What a wonderful gift to help us delve into the healing power of soul medicine.

sweet dreams,

Keys to a Magical Mind

secretsoftheserpent

I thought I would give some keys you can do that will help you unlock the magic in your mind. I will always tell you to start with my Magic post because it will tell you what magic really is and help you to clean out your mind. Everyone is performing magic, they just are not performing it for themselves. You have to clean out your mind in order to perform your own magic. A magical mind is open, flexible, has a propensity to seek reason, has a desire to be well-informed, and a respect for and willingness to entertain diverse view points. A magical mind has no patience for ignorance. It has patience for the person who is willing to learn, but no patience for the ignorant mind that have their opinions, beliefs and ideas set in stone.

Vikings

secretsoftheserpent

The Viking Era is believed to be from 792-1066 CE. The Vikings were north seafarers who traded and raided the North European homeland. Who were these people and where did they come from? Were they barbaric people like history tells us? In the last 10-15 years a lot of truth has come out about the Vikings, so why are we so slow to get the truth out about them?  With the truth of the Vikings coming out, it shatters the lies of human origins. Time to start shattering history.

secretsoftheserpent

The Grim Reaper is said to be the lord of death. He appears when your time on earth is suppose be near its end. There are all sorts of beliefs that his origins came from Thanatos, the Greek god of death, or the Valkyries, who decided which soldiers would die in battle. The Grim Reaper was invented in the 14 century because of the black plague, but his invention is not what most people think.

Cave Trolls

secretsoftheserpent

I haven’t done a post on Lord of the Rings lately, so I will show the Cave Troll. If you have read my Trolls post, you know Trolls are suppressed thoughts or memories. These Trolls need to be tended to in the awakening process. Tolkien represents this perfectly in his books. We all have suppressions we need to deal with, but most of us just let them be until they grow so big, they come out swinging.

Awakening

secretsoftheserpent

What will help someone stay on the awakening path? How do I make sure I can become fully awake and not fall back to sleep? I know I am on the path to awakening and I am struggling, what advice do you have to help? These are just a few questions I have received since the last post. Most will tell you to keep an open mind, but that wouldn’t help anyone. What is an open mind? To me, keeping an open mind is accepting another person’s beliefs. So you just replace garbage with garbage. Belief is why the world is divided. I will be more specific and say – “be open to knowledge”. When you hear others talking about how you have to be like Sherlock Holmes, they are talking about being open to knowledge.  Figuring out what is true and what is false.  You have to feel the…

The Holy Power of Tiger Dreams

By Amy Brucker

Tiger-Leap-In-The-Water-Wallpaper

I was standing by a tree when flames erupted from the branches. I ran to save myself, but a tiger leapt out and chased me.

The ground held no refuge, so I did the only thing I could think of: I left my body and floated away.

The Holy Power of Tiger Dreams

Whenever I dream of Tiger, I wake up feeling blessed, even if the dream was scary. There’s something about her power, her regalness, that makes me feel like I was visited by something Holy.

In many cultures, west on the Medicine Wheel is about autumn, water, and letting go. The corresponding animal? Big Cats.

Big cats, like Tiger, are ferocious in nature. They sit in utter stillness, with patience and keen observation, before pouncing on their prey. When they do, their bloody maw snarls a victory cry. Or perhaps it’s the cry of pleasure.

Unapologetically powerful, Tiger is at once fierce and gracefully feline.

Tigers remind us of the power of radical transformation. The Death of Death. The point of no return.

When Tiger comes calling, you have an opportunity to watch and learn. She’s inviting you to patiently get ready to pounce. She blesses you with courage and perseverance. But you have to be willing to trust her presence in your life. If you don’t, you’ll get burned.

Dreaming of Tiger: A Struggle with Power

When I had this dream, it was the mid-nineties, a time when I was beginning to feel the stirrings of my connection to Spirit as well as my call to shamanism. With these callings came a sense of aloneness and lostness.

On one level, my dream indicated I was having a difficult time dealing with my personal power–my purpose, my passion, my anger–and that my tendency was to run from it and ultimately go out of body as a form of escape. My dream invited me to meet with tiger face to face and learn from her. It took me years to find the courage to make that happen.

Long before I had my dream, William Blake connected Tiger to Fire. He wrote:

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

Blake goes on to ask, “Did he who made the Lamb make thee?” Meaning, did the same hand create the gentle, timid lamb that created the fierce, powerful tiger?

This comparison reminds me of the times in my life when I’ve wondered about the merging of my own gentle and timid nature with my fierce power. Can both be “right”? Can both be a part of the Divine?

When Tiger appears in our dreams, she may be inviting us to notice how well we’ve integrated our power into our lives. Do we run from it? Does it make us go out of body in an attempt to deny it? Do we cuddle up with it and enjoy the warmth?

Next time you have a tiger dream, pay attention to how she shows up and notice if there is a correlation with how you are showing up with your power.

Do a waking journey with her in the imaginal realm and let her guide you deeper into union with your inner tiger.

Then see what happens.

Sweet dreaming,

Amy

Eleven Traits of Witches and Wizards

secretsoftheserpent

I’m often asked, “How do I know if I’m a Witch or Wizard?” I can often tell that if the person is genuinely curious, they are nervous. They have it in their mind that a person who is into magic sits in their parent’s basement and plays with wands and dresses in robes. That is what this world has reduced magic to. This is because the world is in the masculine mindset and has been for the last 5,000 years or so. A true Witch or Wizard has tapped into the power of the sacred feminine. People fear the feminine energy because they don’t understand it. We have brutalized and suppressed the sacred feminine. Governments and religions have put the world into a severe masculine mindset. We have no idea what sacred masculine or sacred feminine actually is. Everything about this world from the top to the bottom is ME…

Salamander

secretsoftheserpent

I love the symbol of the salamander. The salamander is a symbol cloaked in mystery. This symbol is another alchemical symbol that everyone is taking literally. I even read an article about how the ancients were wrong about the salamander. In truth the symbol of the salamander was a battle of wits between ancient philosophers. The word salamander means ‘fire within’. This should have been the first hint the ancients were not talking about the natural salamander.
