The snake and bird symbols can be found within Christianity as well. Their true meaning may be more deeply encrypted but the meaning is the same as in other ancient traditions. In Christianity, the bird or dove often seen above Christ’s head, represents Holy Spirit or Kundalini Shakti. The Christian mystics called Kundalini by another name; Holy Spirit. If we read the Adam and Eve story in the light of the Vedic and Egyptian traditions, we find that the serpent guarding the tree of life is Kundalini. The apple represents the lure and temptation of the external sensory world, distracting us from the knowledge of the inner world, the tree of knowledge within. ~ Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds
