The colder it gets outside the more I hibernate and stay cozy up in my lair. This weeks temperatures have been dropping in the teens and I have been freezin’ my butt off in my bed. I dragged my feather bed out of the closet and thank goodness I did because it was taking up way too much space in there. I decided to place this heavy duck bed on top of all my other covers because that is what the people from the North do to keep warm. My Aunt Marcy made me privy to this when I stayed at her house in Ohio. Southerners usually make it a mattress style thing, but I am not a Big fan of those goose feathers poking me in the middle of the night. Speaking of things poking me in the middle of the night, I was lying in my bed half way between the dream state and reality when I saw a huge spider come from the ceiling dangling from its web. I was so startled and jumped out from under my heavy feather bed onto the floor. I turned the lights on and moved my bed and could not find the spider anywhere. It was all an illusion, but it really felt real. So I told my roommate, Audrey about it and we looked up the symbolism of Spiders. I am going to copy and paste the information here because I think it is fascinating and I need to apply this symbolism to my life path right now. By the way I am not the hugest fan of spiders but I will grow to like them especially when one just visited me in my dream world. Pretty cool!!!!
“Spiders are very delicate creatures that play an important role in the myths and lore of many peoples as the teacher of balance between the past and future, the physical and spiritual.”
“To the Native Americans, Spider is Grandmother, the link to the past and future. In India it’s associated with Maya, the weaver of illusions.”
“With its gentle strength, Spider spins together the threads of life with intricate webs.”
“Spider knows that the past affects the future and vise versa. It calls us to make use of our creativity and weave our dreams into our destiny.”
