SPIDERS. They used to be one of my greatest fears. I encountered an entity, who was very spiderlike in essence. She introduced me to the Spider, or rather, the shamanic Archetype of THE Spider. Ive worked with her for a while now.
Upon initial appearance, spiders illicit a natural response of fear. We are hardwired to recognize them, as they can be a threat to us. That combined with their physiology, can turn a prophetic dream into a nightmare if one is unfamiliar with them.
The Spider spins the Webs of Creation. We see this from our perspective as the Veil, the webbed walls between planes. She is an example of Patience, primal instinct, and art in movement.
One if her biggest lessons is that “There is more at hand than immediately apparent”.
The spider is horrifying to those who do not know her. But she and her children are living, parts of creation. Like us, they respond to rhythm, song, frequency. They are living, sentient in their own way.
Here is a practice anyone can try, if they would like to communicate/make an offering. This can be done with individual spiders, (you may be surprised when you see how they respond. If you can communicate with an otherworldly entity, you can communicate with a worldly one.) Or with the Spider herself.
Calm yourself, sit down. It can be near a spider, preferably, or by yourself. However you get chill, do so. Take your hand. Scrunch it like youre rockin and rollin , but palm-down on a surface.
Place it near the spiders web, somewhere the vibrations will carry throughout the web, but not shake it wildly. If you cant find the spiders that are near you, imagine the ley lines, and that your vibrations carry to them. Hold your intent in your head, and dance. In this practice, your hand is shaped as the spider. Tap your index and pinky finger rhythmically. No special order, because it has to be YOUR beat. YOUR song. Spiders have no facade, nor should you when working with them. After enough practice, you will notice astrally, youll start to MATCH the spiders shape, in essence becoming one yourself for the duration of your ‘dance’! This is a precursor to astral shapeshifting
In regards to this specific spiderlike entity, if you are frightened reach out the the Spider herself, with the intent to understand. She will teach you how to deal with her children, and a lot of other stuff too
The Archetypes of ideas behind the physical that we see are potent currents of power. But that conversation is for another time.
