The Caduceus is the sign of the ancient physician. It is the staff of the Greek god Hermes. The symbology of the Caduceus is little known today. The staff itself represents the spinal column of the human body. The two intertwined serpents that climb the staff symbolize the ascending and descending energy currents in the spine. There is a central channel of energy that, when awakened, rises through the staff (spine) and into the higher brain centers (represented by the globe on the top of the staff). The wings symbolize the liberation that takes place when the energy flows through this central channel. Meditation on the symbol will help to promote the awakening of this energy within you.
