Spider totem is an ally for writers. It has been said that the first letters of the alphabet or the written word were inspired by the various designs found in the webs of spiders. Writing is one of the tools for creating reality
Spider made itself known to me. Unfortunately, I first recognized Spider showing up because I was bitten by Spider at almost every Sacred Circle Gathering—a medicine wheel event—that I facilitated for over a decade. After that, Spider would show up in more amicable ways. Most of the time, Spider is quite large and obvious when it has a message for me.
When connecting with Spider, it is good to know about Spider Woman, a deity in the Navajo religion and Hopi cosmological teachings. Spider Woman is considered the creator of humans and a great benefactor.
There is an old Hopi story about the people who had many differences and had forgotten their connection with the creator. They had lost their conscience to act with integrity. Those who remembered how to walk in balance on the earth and harmoniously with each other were guided by Spider Woman to survive earth challenges.
Spider’s vibrational matching gemstone is Picasso Stone. Picasso stone helps you get up and get moving. If you perceive blocks, real or imagined, use Picasso stone as a tool for transforming your emotions and achieve life-enhancing self-transformation. When mental confusion arises, contemplate the lines mapped within this stone. Use it as a tool for focus. Just as Spider must build and rebuild her web, you, too, must hold a clear vision of what you want in your web and what you want it to look like. If a piece of your world becomes tangled, both Picasso stone and Spider medicine can help you untangle the confusion so that you can rebuild.
