I don't believe in flukes or coincidences and I am a strong believer in messages. This one was clear. If I want the spiders to go away, I need to recognize the lesson. So what do my eight legged friends teach? For starters, spiders represent that things are not always as they seem. They remind us that our perception is not always reality and sometimes we have to check another point of view or, in kind, recognize there may be a deception that we are unaware of in our lives. They also remind that we are weaving our own web (our life and reality) by the choices we make. And spiders represent the feminine, the caretaker.
Today these messages are spot on. As I said, my proverbial cup is running low as I head into a day of more care-taking. Yet instead of taking care of myself this morning in preparation, I find myself focused on the lack. The spiders are reminding me to change that focus. To make the choice and choose myself. To acknowledge that I have a full hour before work to nurture my needs and refill my cup rather than allowing the overwhelm to continue.
I am listening. I do not need any more spiders to refresh my perspective. I sit up straighter in my chair. I take a deep breath and remember today is a new day and I am doing the work I love. I focus on gratitude.
I'm so grateful for the last few days that have taught me so much about care-taking and stepping up. I'm grateful to know things are moving in a positive direction, at least in part from the role I have played and support I have given. I'm grateful to now have some time to focus on myself. I'm grateful for all the support I have been receiving that has allowed me to continue doing what needed done. I'm grateful for tears and I'm equally grateful for laughs. I'm grateful to shift my perspective and already feel my energy returning as I embrace and look forward to this new day.
What messages have you been getting from the Universe? Is there an area of your life that could use a new perspective or a fresh mindset?
May today bless us with a fresh start. May we feel the love and support of the universe and find the energy we need to create this day. Have a beautiful day!
