Are you a Christian? Have you ever experienced what kinglizard is talking about?
The Christian church did not limit itself to changing a few ideas, it also rejected entire books. The church destroyed many documents and records which contradicted the radical changes that were made to Christian doctrine by these councils. Fortunately, the original writings which survived the editing process still offer valuable clues and insights into the life of Jesus.
Many writings rejected by the church councils found their way into a book known as the “Apocrypha” (“hidden writings”). The Apocrypha consists of writings which were adjudged to be of dubious origin or quality by the church.
Some of the material was rightfully rejected. Other Apocryphal works, however, were omitted simply because they contradicted the official church version of Jesus’s life on several crucial details. These are details which, if carefully researched, would offer a somewhat different outlook on the life of Jesus from the one presented in the authorized Bible.

I didn't mean to offend but I did find the awakening of the snake in one's self a bit concerning as a Christian exploring meditation techniques. Powerful imagery to a Christian you know. I'm kinda guarded as to what I let into my being or space and wasn't sure the best route for a christian.
I'll look more into the heart chakra meditation as you recommend. Thanks so much for your advice and direction.
