While dormant, this energy is believed to be coiled up, much like a serpent. This inner power is accessed through realms such as deep meditation, the use of serpentine crystals and yoga. Once released, an effect known as a Kundalini awakening takes place. You’ll notice signs of being more in tune with yourself and your inner intuition comes to life.

I never knew it was toxic! That makes me curious about the authenticity of it at some of my local shops.

The polished or tumbled pieces are better than the rough/natural forms. I’d still be cautious but the polished stones are less fibrous and I personally don’t think you’d have to wash your hands afterwards. But definitely with the rough pieces. I hope this makes sense bc I’m just waking up and working on a half cup of coffee :joy:
