When we see a spider – especially a big one – most of us will jump into freak-out mode. There is something that just so ALIEN about the spider and all those legs…
I had a visit from Spider a few days ago. A middle-sized Huntsman spider, about the size of the palm of my hand. I was using the toilet at the time and she ran up the wall right next to me. I can tell you, that was a tense moment!
Spider is about creation and right now this is something we, individually and collectively, really need to delve into. Spider is reminding us that we are – each of us – a single thread in a massive weaving that forms all the Collective Consciousnesses of this planet and beyond. This massive weaving is formed of the beliefs, the dreams, and the desires, of each part of the weaving. It is formed from the words, thoughts and actions of people just like you. You are creating this weaving, and as the Mistress of complicated, intricate weaving, Spider is the perfect animal ally to help us straighten out any knotted threads
Spider builds her web then she sits patiently, either on her web, or just off to the side where she can’t be easily seen, and she waits for her hard work to bring her a reward. For her, it’s usually dinner, but what is the reward that you seek?
Working with Spider Energy requires that you look deep into your Self and look at the Reward you most desire. Look into the dark and scary places, the complicated and knotty places; and the bright and sparkly places and the places of abundance. Look at what you believe about yourself, about the world around you and at the entire global society that you are a part of. Look at things you want to achieve, ideas you want to bring to life, and ask yourself – especially if you have held onto these things for a long time yet not done anything about them – are these the rewards I want for the lifetime I am living here? Do I want something different from my life? Do I have beliefs that I have been hanging on to – on any subject – even when they appear to be going nowhere? What do I want to create that will be how I am remembered when my time here is past?
Spider knows how to sit in silence. How to be patient and give herself time to achieve her goals. She understands that nothing is achieved if the hard work is not done first.
She weaves with a tiny, thin, gossamer thread that she makes herself from her body. And she understands intuitively what is the right way to weave her threads together. She knows that if she takes the right action steps, she can build her web into a solid and strong structure that will allow her to reap her reward.
We humans, also weave with a tiny, thin, gossamer thread of Belief, that we make, not with our bodies, but with our minds. It is our Beliefs that build the structures we depend upon. We need to know that the Beliefs are not out-dated, worn away by mis-use or lack of care or attention – because if they are, we will never build our society into a strong and solid structure that will allow us to reap our rewards.
Review what you have done so far and what you believe about YOU and the things you want to achieve. Look deeply, and see what is the reward you seek in every interaction you have. Is it Recognition, Praise, Acknowledgement? Is it to know that you have made a difference?
Whatever it is – Create the life you want to live, but never forget that you must do the work in order to reap the reward.
