Serpentine gets it's name from the word 'serpent' because it resembles the skin of a snake. It is sometimes called New Jade and occurs in a variety of colors including red, green, brown-red, brown-yellow and white.

Serpentine has been used since ancient times to guard against disease and sorcery.

Serpentine is an earthing stone that aids meditation and spiritual exploration. Clearing the chakras and stimulating the crown chakra, it opens psychic abilities and helps you to understand the spiritual basis of life. This stone opens new pathways for the kundalini energy to rise. It assists the retrieval of wisdom, and regains memory of past lives.

Serpentine makes an exceptional meditation stone. It helps you to find inner peace. Serpentine was carried in ancient Assyria to request the gods and goddesses to provide double blessings. Nursing women used it to regulate their milk supply.

Serpentine is very powerful, especially for healing work. It aids the clearing of blocked areas, brings the chakras back in balance and also is very beneficial for the heart chakra.

Serpentine properties promote good luck and help people in achieving their dreams and desires.

Serpentine helps in clearing the mind to become closer with oneself, but it should be reinforced with jade or chrysoprase to temper the energy.

Psychologically, Serpentine was used in ancient civilizations as a talisman. It was said to protect against demonic powers as well as promoting fertility.

Mentally, Serpentine is an exceptional meditation stone, it will assist one in finding inner peace, as well as clearing the mind to become closer with oneself.

Emotionally, Serpentine will even out the moods and calm the wearer when in stressful or hectic situations.

Las Vegas, Demons, Angels, Truth, Fear

Demons, Devils, & Spirits Oh My!

While perusing the world wide in search of insight into scare tactics I came across a few great thoughts.

Hollywood likes to make things scary because scary sells. Many religions like to make things scary because fear brings in more offerings, tithing or donations.

The Psychology Of Scare Tactics

Here's how scare tactics work. Something is brought up that evokes a primal fight or flight response. While that response is present, the logical mind reacts from the automatic response of the primitive mind without reason.

The reaction is then stored in the subconscious mind to be pulled from whenever anything related to that data is triggered.

We find these unreasonable responses a lot in people that we work with to open up their own gifts, abilities, etc. In regards to spirit communication, a lot of people have to adjust their reaction to fit the present situation.

What We've Learned

In our work, and our dealing with spirits, entities, untransitioned spirits, spirit guides, guardian angels, etc, we've found some interesting ways to distinguish between them. Those spirits that play the role of Demons or Devils are like bullies. They're generally scared and putting on a mask to protect them from looking at their own stuff. Most untransitioned spirits are just afraid to go home because they're holding on to some guilt, shame or fear of being punished or judged, likely something they carried over from their life experiences. If you can look behind the mask, it becomes clear what they need to let go of to go back home.

An untransitioned spirit will always feel heavy, constricted, sad, mad, angry, or burdened in some fashion. A transitioned spirit will feel light, open, expansive or uplifting. Spirit guides and guardian angels feel even lighter, more expansive and liberating. It may take a little bit to recognize these subtle differences, but when you do, it certainly helps to take the fear out of things.

Put It Into Practice

  1. Let go of any fear
  2. Call in your own Spirit Guides, Angels, Jesus, or anyone else that you feel comfortable with
  3. Have your people call their people (Bring in their guides or whomever is supposed to bring them home)
  4. If you don't know what to do, ask your people for guidance
  5. Communicate like they're real people
  6. Recognize the truth beneath the mask
  7. Go with your first impulse, pay attention to the reaction. You'll feel when they're ready to go
  8. Most times, they just need something to snap them out of the role they've been stuck in
  9. No need to make it flashy, once they get what they need, the transition is a quick process
  10. Keep it light and fun; pretend, make believe, imagine.

Angels, Demons, Angel History, Were do angels come from, where do demons come from, Las Vegas
De-mystifying Mysticism
Angels Or Demons?
(An excerpt from the upcoming book De-mystifying Mysticism )

Angels have been accepted in our current culture as messengers of God. Let's take a look at the origin of Angels for a better understanding.

Defining Angels: What's Your Perspective?

The word Angel means messenger and derives from the Greek angelos or the Latin angelus. So, like the term Entities, Angels encompass a much broader and diverse range of Guides in Spirit or Flesh than most people have come to categorize. Angels are defined as immortal beings living in the Spirit World serving as intermediaries between God and Humanity. They are most often depicted with wings and halos, however they choose to show themselves with or without these things. How they are perceived seems to depend on the perspective of the observer.

Angels Evolved

Angelology evolved as a study in ancient Persia, eventually adopted and absorbed by the emerging religions of Judaism and Christianity. These ancient systems all state that all living beings have angelic guidance and protection available to them. When Angelology was originally adopted by the ancient Hebrews, they used the term angel or Malakh to apply to any being who delivered a message from God to the world. It wasn't until much later that Angels became known exclusively as Beings of Spirit who came to Earth with instructions from God.

Back In The Day

Angels were a common part of everyday life until the 18th Century. With the 18th Century came the Age of Enlightenment which brought a surge of knowledge based on Math and Science but relegated Magic and Mysticism to the realm of the Make Believe. It wasn't until recent history that Science and Mysticism have begun to work together to mend the gap that was created.

Angels ARE Demons?

Angels as Spirit Beings are almost always benevolent although many would be surprised to find that they technically belong to the class of Demons. Even though we have come to think of them as always bringing goodness and light, throughout history, they have alternately been blamed for plagues one moment and then praised for interceding with Divine Help on behalf of Humankind the next.

Beyond Space & Time

We tend to think of Angels as the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and forget that they are most likely on an ever-changing path of Evolution just as we are. Think of a star we observe shining in the night sky; we subjectively perceive it to be there, but it has long since changed into a different form of energy. So, with the Angels we must experience them as we need to in the moment. Like the star; we enjoy the beauty of the energy we perceive regardless of where it is on its path of energetic evolution. For those that are fact oriented and on a mission to get things absolutely correct, it is easy to get lost in a never ending cycle of exhausting memorization. Connect to them in the moment you are in and trust that Angelic Guidance and Wisdom that transcends space, time and dimension to be there.

Bringing It Together

Angels or other beings of light have almost always been perceived in the context of one's Belief System. Today, they are seen, meditated, channeled and invoked in a much more Universal way than ever before. Because of the re-opening of Angelic Channeling, many systems of Angels, their legions, hierarchies and categories exist that can be dizzying and complex in their variety. But overall, this has been a wonderful spiritually unifying process for Humankind and one that continues to reach out to many that have never experienced Angelic Guidance or Communication.

" If you're frightened of dying and you're holding on, you'll see demons tearing your life away. If you've made your peace, then the demons are really angels, freeing you from the earth. "

~ Meister Eckhart


" If we ever wish to know angels for what they truly are... perhaps it is we who must first learn to fly. "



" It can in no sense be said that heaven is outside of any one; it is within... and a man, also, so far as he receives heaven, is a recipient, a heaven, and an angel. "

~ Emanuel Swedenborg


" Few people realize the profound part angelic forces play in human events. "

~ Billy Graham


" Perhaps children's innocence, wherever it comes from, contributes to the fact that they seem to see angels more often. "

~ John Ronner


" Angels come to help and guide us in as many guises as there are people who need their assistance. Sometimes we see their ethereal, heavenly shadow, bright with light and radiance. Sometimes we only feel their nearness or hear their whisper. And sometimes they look no different from ourselves... "

~ Eileen Elias Freeman


" Contemporary Angel accounts are frequently about unpredictable encounters that have personal significance in the lives of otherwise average people. Most accounts involve some wonderful or mysterious being who appeared when most needed and who was usually only recognized as an Angel in retrospect. "

~ Ruth J. Moro


" Angels speak. They appear and reappear. They feel with apt sense of emotion. While Angels may become visible by choice, our eyes are not conducted to see them ordinarily any more than we can see the dimensions of a nuclear field, the structure of atoms, or the electricity that flows through copper wiring. "

~ Billy Graham


" A person is disposed to an act of choice by an angel in two ways. Sometimes, a man's understanding is enlightened by an angel to know what is good, but it is not instructed as to the reason why. But sometimes he is instructed by angelic illumination, both that this act is good and as to the reason why it is good. "

~ St. Thomas Aquinas


" Angels can help us understand what intuition means in a personal way. Angels are actually in charge of a large part of our intuitive self. Viewing intuition from the perspective of angel consciousness, we can say that intuition is our way of tapping into a higher power for guidance and awareness. "

~ Terry Lynn Taylor


" Whatever you put your attention on in this life will increase in your life. As you put your attention on angels, they will begin increasingly to make their presence known to you. "

~ Denise Linn
