Do you feel a special connection to snakes? The snake spirit animal teaches us the lesson of transformation. If you have ever watched a snake shed its skin, you know that It is a slow and painstaking process, and the snake is quite vulnerable while it is happening. Change is hard! But change is also necessary for growth. And the spirit of the snake teaches us to welcome the transformations that fulfill our potential.
Snake energies are also intimately connected with the element of earth, and primal life forces. Because snakes are literally "grounded", they are incredibly sensitive to their environment, and can sense danger from the vibration of the ground itself. They are also fast and flexible in their response when need be.
Are those real gemstones in the snake's eyes? The snake's eyes are made from synthetic onyx. If you look closely, you can even see the carefully cut facets that give the eyes such a lifelike shine. I swear, sometimes this ring looks almost alive.
Did St. Patrick really drive the snakes out of Ireland? Well, Ireland is one of the few places on earth without a native population of snakes (Iceland, New Zealand, and the North and South Poles also missed out). However, there are some who argue that the St. Patrick legend is really a metaphor for him bringing Christianity to Ireland, and driving the pagans out. If that's the case, though, I can tell you for a fact that he missed a few!
