Weaving with the Spider

IMG_2624This morning as I settled into work, I felt this overwhelming urge to go outside with my camera.. something was out there waiting for it’s photo op. I looked up into the sky, looked all around at the trees and then began to walk around the roses in front of me. I wasn’t seeing anything so I moved my focus in for a better look and what do you know… there she was … little miss spider waiting there on the rose petal, waiting.

So today I am to give you some information about Grandmother Spider and ask you to always be thinking about your own web that you weave throughout your life.

Spider is a symbol of creativity.  Is the weaver of the web of life and of fate.  Spider is able to interconnect, linking the past and the future, birth and creation.  If spider crawls into our awareness, it is asking us to rebuild the web of our life in accordance with the design Great Spirit gave us.IMG_2580

The spider shows us that the past, the present and the future are all interwoven.  It awakens our intuitive creative senses and encourages us to design the fabric of our lives from our souls original intention.

Take a moment to think about the web you continuously weave.

Many Blessings,

Creativity Amuck!

projectcollageAs most of you probably already know … I am a tad bit of what you might call a creative soul. {{giggles}} I can’t help myself, I am always creating something or at the very least, thinking of creating something.

After posting a photo of one my newest projects last night, someone asked “do you ever rest? and do you ever get tired?”. YEP, but resting to me is creating. Do I get tired? YEP! I am often tired but my curiosity to see the finished project and what it might look like when it’s done and the excitement of creating overrides how tired I might be.

For me, going home after work and not creating something is more tiresome than creating things. When I’m working on projects I am filled with the energy from the project, the thoughts of what will be and the process of seeing it come to life from my own hands. THAT is exciting to me and fills me with a type of energy that wipes away the tiredness from my day. There is a sense of fulfillment that comes from creating with your own hands that doesn’t come from anywhere else. To dream a project, gather all the materials, begin the creating process and then to see it finished is a feeling of pure joy for me. If you’ve never given creative projects a try, I hope that you find the time to do so at some point in your lives. Don’t worry about being perfect, don’t worry about failing, just do it. Try something and keep at it and if you don’t like what you’ve chosen, choose something else and try that. Pretty soon you might even find yourself addicted like me!

Many Blessings,

Daily Insight – PREGNANCY

Daughter of Earth – Creativity – Pregnancy – Female Powers – Beauty – Talents

You Are PREGNANT!!! YES.. I said PREGNANT! Nope … it’s not a mistake.. let me explain:

Just as a baby incubates inside us women for 9 months, growing and developing… so are many other things growing and developing inside us: talents, skills, powers, etc.

It is time now to give birth to a new you and a new phase in your life. This new phase may be spiritual, physical or emotional. Whichever it may be.. give your self time and try your best to maintain patience with yourself and the process. Just as babies come on their own time… so will this new phase. Don’t rush it into being. Allow the natural flow of life to guide you and this new phase will develop beautifully and with great ease.

Don’t be afraid of the changes within you. The transformation that is already happening will be beautiful and fulfilling. Embrace the changes and absorb the magic.

Many Blessings,

Oh and ENJOY this new way of being!

Daily Insight: Fire

Today’s card: The Son of Fire

This card speaks of courage, strength, vitality and creativity. The image we see if a young boy sitting with a piece of hide on his lap and a bow in hand… What I see is untamed passion. A soul ready to take on the world. A heart willing to love without the worry of cost.

When we are young the world looks so different then when we age. In our younger years, anything is possible. The world is ours to change and mold any way we wish. As we age we find the obstacles that can get in our way. Some allow these obstacles to stop them and some battle until they overcome all gets in their way.

Today’s message is to find that youthful fire inside yourself and go at life with that same wild abandon. Obstacles are nothing more than what you allow them to be. The world is still yours to shape and mold how you would like it to be. So  smack those hands together.. warm them up and get to molding!

Many Blessings,

The Magic of the Spider

Ok so all night through my dreaming I had a huge spider that stayed on me… it was huge but harmless but still creeped me out …where ever I went .. it went with me. It would crawl all over my back mostly and sometimes go to the top of my head and sit there. Spiders have always creeped me out and so this was hard to deal with for most of the night. In my dreaming, I was just doing daily life kind of stuff… running errands, housework, regular work stuff and so on. The spider, no matter what I did … stayed on me though… never falling or jumping off.

I kept telling myself … spiders are good omens.. spiders are good .. get over it Holly… spiders are good…lol..

Eventually … I got over the creepy factor and was at peace with the spider being on me. I knew the spider meant me no harm and wasn’t going to bite me so at some point I just settled down inside and accepted the gift of the spider and a sense of calm and peace filled me.

So in honor of the spider that came to me in my dreaming last night, I want to share with you the magic the spider brings to your life.

A spider totem teaches you balance —
between past and future, physical and spirit, male and female.
She is strength and gentleness combined.
She awakens creative sensibilities
and reminds you that the past is always interwoven with the future.

Spiders are the keepers of the primordial alphabet
and can teach you how to write creatively.
Her body is shaped like the number 8 and she has 8 legs,
which is symbol of infinite possibilities of creation.
Her 8 legs represent the 4 winds of change and the 4 directions of the medicine wheel.

Spider’s message is that you are an infinite being who will continue
to weave patterns of life and living throughout time.
Do not fail to see the eternal plan of creation.

Those who weave magic with the written word usually have this totem.

Many Blessings,
