'Snake Energy' is our ability to react to dangerous or threatening situations with lightening fast, instinctive moves that are designed to throw off the enemy, change the situation and restore a balance of power.
We are probably born with this survival skill but early 'intervention' and training in 'civilized behavior' tends to short circuit this important facet of our behavioral spectrum.

3 EASY STEPS TO RE-OWN YOUR ABILITY TO REACT INSTINCTIVELY:
(Remember this is not about permission to be inappropriate - just the opposite!)
1) Remove caveats and restrictions and old rules of engagement.

Think about past situations where you walked away feeling bad, put down, frightened.
Would 'snake energy' have been appropriate?
Re-write the scenarios using this instinctive, often counter intuitive, approach.
3) Allow your creativity free reign.
Sometimes a smile when people are expecting you to cringe can be incredibly powerful.
A whisper can often be heard much louder than a shout.
