Message from the snake:“Wait patiently, my friends, and trust your knowing. Transformation is inevitable, but you must be willing to shed what no longer serves you, and embrace the possibilities of now. The answers to your questions lay tangled deep within, waiting to be uncoiled. In time, your truths will be revealed. You need only stay grounded and aware as you let your senses guide you through detachment of what was to embody what can be!"
