The serpent has long been a figured of mystery and wonder, and it is
frequently appears in the mythology of a wide range of cultures. Here,
the words of Travis Bowman and the symbolic artwork of Eliot Alexander
come together to offer you a prayer to Snake, to help you seek the aid
and presence of the mysterious creature's spirit within your life.
Printed on a 8 1/2" by 11" parchment poster, the Snake Prayer reads:
I call on the spirit of the Snake
I call on the primal and healing forces you carry.
I call on your intuition and your heightened senses.
Help me remain pressed close to the present
So I might experience this existence directly.
Make me aware of subtlety and open to change.
Sensual and fertile spirit,
I ask you for transformation.
Help me shed that which I have outgrown.
Clear my eyes so that I might slide free of the past
And into a newly formed now.
Coil your power, speed, and precision within me so
That I might harmonize with the invisible
And swallow whole the wisdom I seek.
