Hi, so I was wondering what your experiences are or knowledge is of centipedes? I know that’s vague. I dont really have much to go on here, just that they’ve been showing up a lot lately. For some reason they keep crawling in my grimoire… I’ve had to rip out so many pages because they’ve had centipede guts on them. It’s become a bit annoying.
The only thing that I can find to sort of tie in with them is that the last time they showed up like this I was under a lot of emotional stress and having a lot of nightmares.
They would show up after any meditation or evocation… and the fact that they’re crawling into the pages of my grimoire. That’s what really makes me do a double take.
But this time instead of having emotional stress, I feel nothing at all. I have been having pretty gruesome nightmares but the only thing that scares me about them is that I’m not scared of the images I see. In fact I find it hard to feel much of anything at all, I find myself faking a lot of things. But that’s a different story.
So theres obviously some connection here… I guess I just lack the wisdom to put the dots together.
I looked up the symbolism of centipedes and I can see how it sort of relates?
“The Centipede is the totem of Chiefs because of its poisonous bite and rapid movements. There is a legend about the Centipede that tells that its painful bite and quick movements frightens even the grand and magnificent Dragon.”
So I’m not sure what part, if any, I fit into within that interpretation. Am I supposed to represent the dragon who the centipede is trying to frighten? Or am I the centipede who frightens the dragon?
(Find it hard to believe that a centipede could frighten a dragon though haha but what do I know.)
Also I’m not sure if it relates or not, but I’ll mention it just in case. I’ve also been having visions over and over again of a “manticore”.
A lion with a human face, tail of a scorpion and wings.
So if you have any knowledge to add or experiences I’d be most grateful.
