Since I was a little girl, spiders have always come to me, no matter where I was. They never bit me or did any other damage, they just hung around. When I lived in Arizona, I even cleaned out a nest of Black Widows by my washer and dryer with my bare hands and suffered no ill effects. Sometimes I amaze myself with my foolishnes.
Then one day a year ago I got four spider bites on the left cheek of my butt. Surprise, surprise, what was this about? It healed and I wondered but got no answers. Then last year, I got those same four bites, but this time it was on another cheek, the left cheek of my face. Not cool, pretty or good. I wondered if suddenly spider was mad at me.
I finally got my answer about the bites. It seems that since I was not showing off my butt bites (gee I wonder why, but I don’t think spiders understand about modesty and clothing), they made the mark more visible. Yes, apparently I had agreed, pre-birth, to be marked as a messenger and the spider was giving me my “mark.”
This mark designates me as a spirit messenger to help humanity reconnect to their original source, the creator. I am supposed to share spiritual information from the ancient cultures so we can wake-up and recognize our interconnection with All-That-Is. Spider Spirit Woman is a spiritual name that I was given and it carries an energetic vibration to help me accomplish my mission. Spider Spirit Woman also has a sense of humor, she is old and apparently wants people to know about it, that’s why she adds “I.B. Ancient” after her name.
Spider is a messenger and a weaver of life. Do not be afraid of them as they eat bugs and make our homes healthier, as a result. But if you must be afraid, ask them to leave you alone and be visible to you. It’s amazing how they respond. More on spiders in a later blog.
