The serpent clearly indicates the sacred fire that—when rising through the dorsal spine—grants powers to the initiate.

We have seven bodies, and each of them has its own serpent or sacred fire—two groups of three with the sublime coronation of the seventh one. These serpents of fire transform us completely. There are also seven serpents of light.

The heart is the temple of the bird-serpent. We need to not only raise the serpents of each body, but moreover, we need to be devoured by the serpent, in order to become bird-serpents or feathered serpents. This can only be achieved with love and sexual magic.

When the serpent reaches the heart, we receive the igneous wings, and then we become feathered serpents.


This figure clearly indicates a face of a Mayan Priest.
