Snake medicine people are very rare, Their initiation involves experiencing and living through multiple snake bites, which allows them
to transmute all poisons, be they mental, physical, spiritual, or emotional. The power of snake medicine is powerful creation, for it embodies
sexuality, psychic energy, alchemy, reproduction, and ascension (immortality). poem by opal unicorn:
when i was bitten, i sank deep, deep into the sunken place, i forgot who i was or what i was, was I the stars? or the wolf howling at the moon? i didnt know anymore, because I had, the blues, a blue so deep it hurt, hurt inside the snake living inside me, hurt like the rattlesnake bites bloody fangs in my heart,
the pain was like a thousand planets exploding at once, a supernova times a billion,
was i me, or was I you? Did I find the forgotten land Aztlan? or was i dying in a dark, dusty gutter????
oh, yes, it was the snake, it bit me.....no, no, no, not the snake.....me...i bit myself, no....it was the snake......no....wait
this is the end.....i cant, i wont, stand to live one more day in this wretch of a place.....no no it was the snake , no no, it was me.
no, no, "
"you are hallucinating Hoe! wake the fuck up! get up, you have more to do, get up off that dusty road now and get going."
whose voice was that????? jeez.....here I am trying to die, when i hear this voice.......it was the voice of some pissed of lady,
telling me to get my ass back up and keep walking........she said get the fuck up.....and I did. so here I am. walking...walking.....walking........ no end in site, just a dusty landscape and a blue, blue sky, the blue that i feel deep inside me, deep inside the snake,,,,that damn rattle snake....
