Serpentine Crystals are some of my favorites to look at, but this was my first week working with them. In my research on them, I learned that there are many ways to use this crystal.
Ultimately, I decided to take this week easy with work in general (you’ll see why below), so my only goal with Serpentine was to draw in positive energy and repel negative energy.
Will it work? Let’s find out!

Day 1 – Dance
In my quest to find Serpentine-specific meditations, I came across this video:
It’s just instrumental music, but I thought it was pretty cool.
Also I watched a whole documentary on snakes?? I don’t know why I did that. I was looking for serpentine videos and accidentally found this:
At 30:07, they talk about how these snake charmer people believe that a stone protects them from snake bites (it’s Soapstone, not Serpentine, sadly). The narrator argues against that with logic and science, and I would like to once again get on my soapbox and BEG YOU NOT TO USE CRYSTALS IN PLACE OF MEDICAL TREATMENT. Other than that it was a good video.
Day 2 – Unicorns
I got these today:
On the left is an Emerald, on the right is a Titanium Quartz. Why did I buy these? Like seriously, I do not need more crystals. I just couldn’t leave without these.
I got home and pulled out my Orb Cards. These are the weirdest cards I’ve ever had:
The one I drew was about Unicorn magic, and it told me to seek out Unicorns. I’ve never considered Unicorns as even remotely real, but I decided to go with it. I found this video:
I sat on the floor of my vocal booth and did this meditation with my Serpentine crystals and my two new ones. The Titanium Quartz totally reminds me of a Unicorn.
Day 3 – Save The Snakes
Since I’m working with snake energy this week, I decided to find some charities to volunteer. I contacted one and donated to another, so hopefully I’ll hear back!
Physically, I feel like absolute shit.
I’m just going to be honest about this: I’m detoxing from an opiate addiction. Very few people in my close circle know, but I plan on being open/honest about this in the future. I’m currently on a program to slowly come off of them, but every day has been a physical struggle.
I have no right to complain. I got myself into this mess. It’s just been a tough time and I’m grateful for small distractions like crystals. Don’t do drugs, kids. It’s just as bad as they say.
I’ve been watching the Earth, Wind & Fire music video for “Serpentine Fire,” and their outfits are incredible:
Also, their falsetto voices?!? Holy crap, they are amazing.
Day 4 – My Kundalini is Busted
I pulled my lower back somehow and every time I move, there’s a sharp, stabbing pain. Normally I would turn to pain meds for this, but whoops, I can’t take those like a normal person so now I have to just be in pain.
Does this mean my Kundalini is awake? If so, I would like it to please go back to sleep. Unless I’m gonna die soon, then that’s fine too I guess.
Today is actually more like day 6 or 7, I skipped several days due to back pain and withdrawal.
Since I’m being honest about this:
In my post about Labradorite (here), I talked about how I was led to opening up about something. I should go back and edit it I guess, but I was talking about my addiction. A few people know now and I was lucky to get into a treatment program quickly (although ‘treatment’ is basically “just keep taking less”, it’s better than I could do on my own).
They say that every pain you’ve pushed aside for pain meds comes back when you are detoxing. It’s been true so far, both physical and emotional, so I’m probably going to take a break from crystal work for a while. Maybe I should end this one early, but I’m already halfway through.
Day 5 – Snake Meditations
I found a “Kundalini Meditation” today:
I wasn’t expecting anything going into it, but about halfway through I felt a strong feeling all along my spine, like electricity. I’m sure it could be my mind because I was anticipating something? But I really was skeptical going into it and I 100% felt something physical, so…? Is my Kundalini open now? What does that mean?
If you try this, let me know if you feel it and what it means for you!
Day 6 – Feeling the Stones & Pulling Cards
All week I’ve felt weird working with both of these for some reason. They just didn’t seem to click together the way my other crystals do.
I worked with this feeling for a bit and eventually I realized they have totally different ‘energies’ or ‘feels’ to them.
The one on the left feels more energetic, or “spicy” is the word I keep getting. The one on the right feels a lot more gentle and serene.
I don’t know, am I going crazy? Probably, right? But then check this out. I was working with my oracle cards for spirit animals:
And I got this card:
Are you kidding me?? What?! Like, this is too much to be a coincidence, right? None of this is science obviously, but it’s wild.
I also donated to a snake charity (a different one than I’m volunteering for, just to spread the love around I guess). I’m all about snakes right now for some reason haha.
Day 7 – Shedding Old Skin
I met with the snake charity today and I’m going to be volunteering for them. In fact, please check them out! www.savethesnakes.org (link)
We’re starting very small and I only have a few small roles, but it can grow from there and they seem supportive if I want to go further into this as a career. Maybe I could be a snake vet?! I mean why the hell not at this point.
I also told one of my best friends about my addiction and she was incredibly supportive. For whatever reason, I thought she would be furious and maybe wouldn’t ever talk to me again. It was the complete opposite and I’m so lucky to have great people in my life who will help me transform and move on. I’m ready to become something new now.
So, holy shit, Serpentine came through. I honestly don’t know if it did anything for my Kundalini and I’m still not clear on what that is, but I felt *something* that I guess could count.
Here Are My Results Working with Serpentine Crystals:
- I’m going through a lot of big life changes and I definitely think my work with Serpentine eased the process
- I honestly have no clue if this was in fact my Kundalini, but I did feel a physical sensation that seemed like it could be? (It’s Day 5 if you want to see it). I also had a back injury this week which may also be related or may be because I slept wrong, who knows
- Although I had no intention to focus on actual snakes, this week I took a hard turn down the path of snake conservation and I wound up volunteering for a Snake Charity. This could eventually be a career path so at the least, Serpentine let me to volunteering here. At most, it changed my life path and direction
- My learning about snakes showed me that I too am going through a transition, a shedding process if you will
- I worked with cards and pulled the snake card, which said I was going through this process to be a healer. I took “this process” to mean my life changes
My Recommendations for Working with Serpentine Crystals:
- I highly recommend leaning into the Serpent/Snake aspect, even if you aren’t into snakes (or maybe especially if you aren’t). You don’t have to go as far as I did and volunteer with them, but you’ll learn a lot at least
- See where you can make changes in your life. How can you transform?
- I highly recommend the meditations posted, as well as just meditating with them in general
- Journaling is always imperative with any crystal work (I have a crystal worksheet below if you want to use it)
- I usually hike with my crystals but it was freezing so I didn’t this time, but weather permitting, I recommend hiking with crystals as a walking meditation
