Today Grandmother Spider steps in, telling us all to be cognitive of what we weave in our lives … make sure that things are clear and with purpose towards the positives we need to keep our Sacred Hoops balanced. Make sure that the threads of connections to the people in our lives are healthy ones that reinforce good things, things that share love and joy, reinforcing and making our hoops stronger. Make sure to not reinforce the negatives of others and that of the world we live in. Seek ways to influence these things in positive manners in order to enable change for the better of self and others. Simply pointing out what is wrong and not providing options for improvement or repair, is not walking on a path that will lead the way for others to walk with integrity and for the highest good.
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.
