Jena, here is my answer!

Jena Isle asked me after my interpretation of the story of the feathered serpent. The answer, I will be quick to reply, especially since I've noticed that few comments were made. Dori, the sun woman, had an interpretation: "

The snake has slept away the day and the presence of the shadow. We humans can overcome the shadow. And then we radiate in new colors. "


Dear sun-women, this is a correct interpretation, because the stories of the feathered serpent belong to all people and any interpretation, which is found, shows us the way. The story has many meanings and I would like to deliver one of them now.

The feathered serpent is a creature that is dreaming. She lies in the grass and sleeps and her date with the shadow, is the appointment with everyday life. We all live a life that is a shadow of our true self is, a life that in a figurative sense lies somewhere in the grass and is dreaming.

Some things in everyday life are empty in retrospect like a shadow, but while we do these empty things, we are filled with emotion and passion, animated by ideas and thoughts, these are the colors on the snake body, which fall in our dreams and which will wake up again when we encounter these feelings when we remember them when we go back to the site of the dance.

The snake is still more, it is a group of people who belong together, who unite to become the snake, because they dream together. Just before that, they do not yet know about, they sleep ......

So sleeper wake up, you can dance as much as you want, but somewhere in your dreams, there is something waiting for you, with which you were connected from the beginning, are and always will be connected.

Thanks Ray,

That's a very deep meaning, quite unfathomable too. Really it is worthy of a debate in a philosophy class. Thanks for sharing. Happy holidays.

Hello Ray,
I interpreted it like this,

The snake is people who dare to be different and the shadows on the ground are those who go with the flow. I don't look at snakes as positive though, they denote something sinister to me , but as you've always intoned, we must be positive in our thoughts.

I do firmly believe in this and thanks for interpreting the post for me, I'm flattered and I had to read it twice to understand..lol...Christmas drowsiness..lol...I'll be a colorful snake when I go out of my daily humdrum routine to discover something beautiful and out of the ordinary, perhaps helping other people, living life by savoring each moment, etc. thanks for very enlightening posts. You always inspire me. Happy new year.
