I confess:  I’m not a big fan of spiders.  I don’t mind them too much if I can see them coming, but if one sneaks up on me, or starts walking on me, I get a little freaked!  All those little legs holding up that little body . . .  [shudder]

However, any of you who do work with Animal Spirit Guides knows that those dear little (or not-so-little) spiders actually carry an important message for us.  From Steven Farmer’s book Animal Spirit Guides, when a spider shows up, it means:

– This is an opportunity to access your deepest wisdom and assimilate it so that it becomes a part of your daily living.

– Beware of any potential traps or ruses that you’re tempted to get involved in.

– Rather than staying stuck in this apparent impasse, open your mind to the infinite number of possibilities that are before you, and make a choice.

– Don’t limit yourself to the mundane world, but instead be willing to explore other dimensions and realities.

– It’s time to write creatively without limits of tradition or habit, allowing yourself to be inspired by Nature.

Now, whenever a spider shows up, I’m more interested in seeing where its message fits into my life. (I still brush it away from me gently and lovingly, though)

The angels want to add some more detail to this discussion of spiders (they brought up the topic, by the way . . .).  The remind us that everything on this earthly plane is interconnected.  All of our lives, all living organisms, all currents of the earth.  There is no randomness, there is no coincidence.

They show me the web of interconnectedness that encircles our whole world — on a very large, cosmic level.  And, they show me the delicate interconnectedness that exists between each of us.  They ask you to imagine the beautiful gossamer threads that tie us to everyone else.

They also invite you to imagine yourself sitting in the center of a beautiful, intricate web made of golden thread.  Your influence and energy stretches and fans out from your heart center.  It isn’t an image of ensnaring others or capturing them — it’s a loving extension of your spirit-filled soul.

Now, it is possible for dark gunk to cover the golden thread.  That gunk would be the tendency to control and to manipulate others.  But, that’s not the core — the core is beauty and light.  To remove the gunk is in the practice of forgiveness and surrender.  Surrender to love and peace — and forgive all things that are not.

The threads of love and peace  are very strong — they cannot be broken.  But, the dark gunk can be dissolved and washed away.  Hold the intention of it and ask the angels for their help and the clean-up begins instantly.

Also hold the intention of connecting completly with the golden Truth of your interactions.  Hold the intention of adding blessings in all situations and interactions.  Hold the vision of rising into your highest self — that part of you that is in full alignment with the divine.  (Yes, that is part of you!  Absolutely!)

You are sitting in the very center of your personal web of interconnectedness — make it work for your highest purpose.  Add love and forgiveness, blessings and beauty to the web.  You will feel the love and beauty encircle you like a warm, gentle breeze — and you will offer that to everyone around you.

Remember Charlotte and her web.  The amazing power of the spider!

Love to you all today.  Blessings from above.
