I find this thread sad, fascinating, and so true. The "inner snake" being discussed here has been given lots of different names and designations over the centuries... A recent book (and kind of a good one, I think) about it is called "Taming Your Gremlin" by Rick Carson.

Personally I've tried lots of approaches with mine. First I tried to talk back to it (recommended by a therapist). This did not work because it is stronger and more wily than me. Next I thought maybe I could eradicate it for good -- now no longer believe that's possible. My current M.O. is to allow it to bleat on softly in the background while I go about whatever task it's telling me I won't be able to do. It's usually still bleating the same B/S long after I've finished the task!

Love and best wishes to all.

My inner snake lost control yesterday
She spat out her emotion
Without a thought for the shame it has caused me today...

She was being cruel to me
She wanted me to delete...
Now I am very tired of it all...

Maybe she needed to say it.... (sadhug)

You’re loved here, we don’t want you to delete

My inner snake wants me to delete but mostly she’s a fairly tame snake


Unless she is needed not to be ...

Thank you dear friend

She did need to let it out....
Maybe this keeps us safe at such moments...
She is not like this unless she is under extreme pressure, thankfully...
Maybe she was ultimately trying to help us....

Thank you for the love and from all posters

Much love to you and everyone today

My inner snake is the only one with any fight left...
I wish she would be quiet a while...
