Serpentine is a gentle stone that aids meditation and spiritual exploration. It is said to open psychic abilities and to help us understand the spiritual aspect of life. It may assist the retrieval of wisdom and memories of past lives. Serpentine can help us feel more in control of our lives. It enhances communication with Nature and the Earth – including the animal, plant, and mineral kingdoms.
Serpentine is said to be a strong cleansing and detoxifying stone for the body and blood, which could even eliminate parasites. It is beneficial for calcium and magnesium absorption. Serpentine can assist in cellular regeneration and in replenishing one’s energy. It is believed to ensure longevity and relieve pain.
Meditating with Serpentine can help correct mental and emotional imbalances, resolve issues carried over from past lives, and clear emotional baggage from previous relationships. It is excellent for awakening the kundalini* energies – the ‘serpent power’.
Placed on the appropriate chakra, it can clear and activate all chakras, especially the Heart and Crown chakras. Placed on the throat, it aids speaking of the past.
*KUNDALINI: in yogic theory, kundalini is a primal energy said to reside at the base of the spine, coiled up like a serpent, waiting to be awakened. Kundalini awakening is said to result in spiritual enlightenment and bliss.
