card 16 spider 1122
Spider says to weave the web wisely that is around you. Mend it where it is needed, and make sure you do not get caught up and tangled by your own doing. Spider reminds us that although it is easier at times to take a negative step on our journeys it will always come back to bite us in the butt. You need to choose your actions and words with more positive intent, even if that means you have to sacrifice ease and smoothness of situations or events today. In the long run it will help us all to manifest positives and keep us balanced. So basically…stop trying to cut corners to save time or effort. honor the process and walk with positive intent… the rewards will be great and there is no better feeling of accomplishment than getting things done the proper way.

Spider teaches us about hard work, creativity and releasing ourselves from what binds us. They show us that we are the creators of our own life, our own Sacred Hoops and that like the Spider we too spin intricate webs in our life stories. So as the Spider is a masterful weaver of its web, we too must become masters of weaving strong paths in our own lives.

Spider also whispers to each of us to be careful not to get caught in the webs of shadow, greed, and negativity. When this occurs it is time to release and begin anew. Do not stay trapped, for you are in charge of your own reality, it is up to you to take charge and move in the right direction. That we must create our own path in life, and learn to be a part of the whole as we walk the human, for all things are connected, we are all one.

“The webs of our lives are all connected to the web of all that is,”
Grandmother Spider shares with us, “Our individual webs are made up of stories, beliefs and our emotions that make their way out to the universe. Listen to the word “story” for to store within ourselves is a function of the story. If we believe the stories we tell ourselves our very core within our souls will vibrate in that belief and create your web from that vibration. The Universe will support our stories, just to prove to us that we are creators. So step wisely, spin positives, and create a strong Sacred Hoop”

So, the question today is simple, what have we decided to create?

“Some human stories have served you,” Grandmother Spider shares, “and others have not. It is now time to clear your webs of those stories that have not. When you do so, you make space for new stories ones that will reflect your true nature, your soul’s light and your connection to all that is. “

“I am Dedicated to Educating and sharing the Native culture with the World. It is not enough merely to teach the ways of our Elders. We must honor those traditions by sharing and educating the World. Inspiring others …Inspiring our Youth. Through the Music… the Arts…the stories…”

  2. I read about “Greenspider”, a contrary, when I was young.
    I recognized myself in his story, and so adopted the moniker for myself.
    Being “spiritual”, but not having teachers, I didn’t know about the “red road”, or the teachings of the 7 grandfathers, but I knew I was like “Greenspider” in many ways.
    I am far on my path now, but like all good students, I still have much to learn.

    Thanks for sharing this story.
    It is a teaching I was sent to hear.
