Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

It’s wise to use your mind and think,
pull out your map or compass when you’re lost, ask for directions,
follow the breadcrumbs on the trail,
avoid danger when you know it’s emanate,

But wiser to listen to your internal clock and messages that never steer you wrong.

Say YES, when it’s crystal clear, no when it isn’t and maybe when you don’t know.

Walk away from things that don’t feel right and towards yourself and cut your losses.

Let go of worry,
self doubt,
fear of failure,
fear of success which are man given constraints.

Life continues to give you new lessons of growth and opportunities.

You will make mistakes which are often the same ones over and over again, until you get it right.

But you will succeed!
So trust your gut and envision what you want.
Go now, follow your dreams and set fire to the wind beneath your sail.

Happy Monday Friends,

I hope you has a great weekend. Yesterday, I had a worker over and he said “I’m leaving be careful of the snake it’s about 6 feet long. I was prepared to find a boa constrictor the way he made it sound, and it was fairly long but skinny with beautiful markings and didn’t have a rattler which was a relief since my cats were ready to pounce it which did make me a bit nervous.

I emailed my friend Tim and he identified it as a Great Basin Gopher Snake and said:

“He’s not venomous. You can pick him up, I would start picking him up from the middle to see how he will react. If he doesn’t act aggressively then you can use both hands to pick him up giving him good support. Gopher snakes have teeth. If he bit you he would leave marks, but nothing serious. If I saw him I would pick him up and play with him before moving him to a safer spot.”

Let’s just say I trusted my gut and didn’t pick it up but don’t know where he went. It makes me remember when we sold our last house and our boa constrictor got loose and we sold our house as is. I still think of when it might show up and how big it must be 22 years later.

This is what I found when I looked it up:

Gophersnakes do not have venom that is dangerous to most humans. (Not sure what they mean by MOST humans 😂) Gohphersnakes are one of the most commonly seen snakes in California. Primarily active during the day, they are also active after sundown on hot days. They do keep the rattlesnake population down which was a surprising fun fact also.

I just told the contractors NOT to kill him if they see him today.

Don’t Kill Me Please! Without snakes, the number of prey species would increase to unnatural levels and destroy the stability of the ecosystem. Similarly, if a large number of snakes are killed, the predators that eat snakes will struggle to find food.Nov 16, 2020

Snake Symbolism & Spiritual Meanings Of Snakes

Snakes symbolize a variety of things: wisdom, protection, rebirth, fertility, healing, renewal, and primal energy. Just like snakes shed their skin, seeing a snake or dreaming of them is a sign of rebirth and renewal; they also symbolize the nurturing earth.

However, in many cultures, snakes have a dark meaning, often symbolizing evil, destruction, and temptation.

Let’s just say I’m going with the Spiritual Meaning unless it’s a rattler and then I stay clear.

See you Wednesday with a Published poem from MasticadoresUSA.

Blessings of Love and Laughter,

I find snakes fascinating and frightening but I’m reminded that they’re also God’s creation. Many of them have beautiful colors and patterns and they move gracefully in the shape of an S. And they are wise too. Some of them are harmless.

Your snake is a beauty! (Although I wouldn’t have picked him/her up either!) I love that you always choose the spiritual meaning of everything. Cheers to a lovely weekend, my friend Cindy! 🌞
