Serpentine is soothing to the emotional body, allowing you to release your fear of change and hardship so that you are able to look ahead to the future with expectation and excitement. It reminds you of the great span of time that the Earth and Nature have been learning, versus the relatively short time that humanity has inhabited this planet. This perspective can help you feel less self centred and more willing to spend time and energy contributing to the greater good, rather than focusing solely on personal goals.
