The Origine’ Carpetsnake Clans of Australia are the direct descendants of Old World keepers of, arguably, one of the most ancient cultures on the planet…..The Rainbow Serpent Lore ……This ancient Lore commences in most most eastern point of the Australian continent……Wollumbin Caldera
The Rainbow Serpent is one of the most widely featured ancestral beings in the traditional lore and custom of the original Australian peoples….
Two Rainbow Serpents consistently turn up in the culture; commencing with the female Rainbow Serpent, that is the ALL- Mother. She is the original galactic creator being.…giver of Life and creator of Lore ……and then there is the more contemporary male Rainbow Serpent who is the transformer of the land…..
One travels celestially, one terrestrially – earth and sky …..thus, the sacred significance is that of both the phallus and the womb…..Rainbow Serpent is the great father and mother of all forms of life, and it is always associated with water, the source of all life…. an important cultural creator being that is linked to Landscape, through Lore and Language, but only the female Serpent comes from the Matristic Starlore Culture.
In the masculine form Rainbow Serpent also slithers over the land, his tracks shape the mountains, his body scours out the course of the rivers; where he occasionally stopped for a rest, he created waterfalls, bays and lakes……. Piles of rocks are said to be his droppings, and such sites are considered sacred…… As he moved, his scales scraped off and become the forests and woodlands of the region…….
In the feminine the Rainbow Serpent can be seen in, and descends to earth from, the band of stars spread across the sky, which form the milky-way galaxy……the everlasting water of space – the celestial RIVER … The sacred waters are the basis of the women’s ‘skin-lore’ kinship relationships…. a personification of fertility, richness in propagation of plants and animals and rain, a narrative that is common throughout Australia……
Rainbow Serpent All-Mother is the Matristic creator of all, having life-giving powers that send conception spirits, Origine’ Mermaids, to protect all the waterholes from which the women obtain their babies…….Pleiadian Sisters…..
From the Alcheringa … the highest waterfall on the Wollumbin Caldera Rim……Rainbow Serpent sings to create the Tjuringa [Cheringa] stones – sacred totemic stones from Wollumbin which are ‘sung’ with ‘supernatural power’……
These power objects hold ancient lore and travel west into the central desert lands as spiritual memory sticks to be used by initiated elders in rituals and ceremonies – the acquisition of sufficient knowledge which lead to the possession of such a stone was long, difficult and sometimes extremely painful….
A Tjuringa must never be removed from the ground in which it was placed for to do so invites paranormal dreams, visions and sickness.
Rainbow Serpent is responsible for regenerating rains, and also for storms and floods when she acts as an agent of punishment against those who transgress the ancestral lore/law or upset it in any way….For whilst the Rainbow Serpent is primarily a symbol of fertility and creation, she is also known both as a benevolent protector and as a malevolent punisher of law breakers……
The beautiful and exotic daughters of the Rainbow-Serpent. …The Seven Sisters or Mermaid Fertility Spirits inhabit rivers, lagoons and waterholes and also reside in the night sky…. In many accounts they are Siren-women…In sacred ritual, these daughters of the Serpent are concerned with magico-religious practices for women and love ceremonies for both men and women…following ancient Matristic Lore codes of creation which once encircled the planet…
On her journey through the River of the Milkyway, Rainbow Serpent meets with the Seven Sisters – Pleiades- who are called the Wiangaree, in Ngarakbal Githabal language – and gifts them the lore…The totemic kinship ‘skin’ lore that links all life……
The Wiangaree is the original name of the Border Ranges National Park, on the rim of the Wollumbin Caldera ……..and the pinnacle is a terrestrial symbol of the Galactic Rainbow Serpent – where a sacred matristic skinlore ring was created , aligned to the galaxy ….. during the British colonization process it was destroyed and the Rainbow Serpent Lore sites sliced in half to create the separate states of Queensland and New South Wales , with all ancestral names changed in an effort to eradicate the Matristic Culture from Australia….sanitizing history.
For the Ngarakbal Githabal of the Yoocum Yoocum moiety of the most eastern point of the Australian continent their home is Wollumbin Caldera…To them the Rainbow Serpent is known as ‘Warrazum’…. and the Lore comes from the ‘Alcheringa’ [Creation time]…….and the Alcheringa is the name of their sacred waterfall located high in the Macpherson Ranges of the New South Wales/Queensland Border…which has always been the abode of Warrazum, the Rainbow Serpent – its an ancient Women’s Water Lore and it comes from the stars……
