"Die before you die, so that you can truly live."
In Sufism, the concept of dying before death means to live fully, present, without attachment, without ego, so as to experience life in totality, to live each day as if it were your last.
As the great Sufi poet Rumi said, "Become the resurrection of the spirit, so you may experience the resurrection. This becoming is necessary for seeing and knowing the real nature of anything."
The snake as an amulet represents the power of creation, embodying sexuality, reproduction, psychic energy, ascension, immortality.
The personal transformation inherit within the life-death-rebirth cycle is exemplified by the shedding of the snake skin. The willingness and ability to experience anything without resistance; trust that those things which might be experienced as poison can be eaten, ingested, integrated, and transmuted if one has the proper state of mind.
The Snake Ring aids you in your transformation.
The only constant in life is change. Are you still fighting it?
Remember that life is always here to serve you, it is just a matter of shifting your perspective.
Let all that needs to go, go. Let all that needs to come, come. And live.
