The White Spider

white spiderTrying to do things DIFFERENTLY this time. When dealing with feelings of loss sadness frustration etc. I am trying to now sit with my feelings instead of experiencing them once removed by:

  1. immediately expressing it to another for feedback; or displaying it to the world via some social media outlet
  2. watching a video on the same subject matter or reading an article for an “experts” opinion on how to deal
  3. looking at something funny so as not to deal

Instead….I chose to deal. I chose to feel my feelings and not run away from them. I chose to sit with them and just FEEL them.
It didn’t feel good, but it felt REAL. I even decided not to think or analyze why I always feel a sadness when a certain situation occurs. I decided to just FEEL.

I felt my feelings until I fell asleep. There was such a void created until I just didn’t feel much anymore. I feel stronger this way. And in this way I feel more…alive. A rustling from the furnace or whatever it’s called woke me up. I found a little white spider in my bed, then a tiny white feather; a little reminder that everything is going to be alright. A little sadness  and pain never hurt anyone. I’m feelin’ that.

I looked up animal totems and read that white spiders are associated with good omens and more:

Spider Symbolism

The Spider is an ancient symbol of mystery, power and growth.

We take our first lesson from the ancient symbol of the Spider by contemplating its web.

Just as the Spider weaves a web, so too must we weave our own lives. The Spider symbol meaning here serves as a reminder that our choices construct our lives. When the Spider appears to us, it is a message to be mindful of the choices we are making – and ask ourselves:

  • How are my choices affecting my life?
  • How can my choices improve my life?
  • How are my choices affecting others in my life?

 

Not only do Spiders and their webs draw attention to our life choices, they also give us an overview of how we can manipulate our thinking in order to construct the life we wish to live.

Spiders do this by calling our awareness to the amazing construction of their webs. Fully functional, practical, and ingenious in design – Spider webs serve as homes, food storage, egg incubators – seemingly limitless in their functionality.

When we consider this ingenious diversity, we can also consider the web-like construct of our own lives.How are we designing the most effective life?

When we see our decisions, choices and actions as far-reaching, effective tools in life – we can see how we weave a web that can either serve us or enslave us. The Spider symbol meaning beckons us to be mindful of our behaviors – be smart about the life we weave for ourselves.


How telling. How succinct. How relevant to the situation…I’ll never doubt the signs, because this one so resonated with me. Also, is there anything peculiar about someone who said they saw a tiny white spider and a white feather at the same time…on a forum…back in 2008? Wow. What does a feather mean to me? For me, it means a GOOD OMEN….I guess I’m constantly anxious because just about every sign to me means “erthang gon’ be alright baby…”

When you find feathers upon your path it could be taken to mean that you are on a higher spiritual path (whether you accept it or not), and it may be a sign of encouragement as you philosophically travel on this path.

Finding feathers on your path is also symbolic of having a lighter outlook on life or a particular situation.  When we see feathers in our midst it is considered a message that we need to lighten up, not take things too seriously, and try to find the joy in our situation. (Found here.) 

(At this point I had to stop because the word count was exactly 666. Now this is gettin’ too weird.)

I’m going to wrap it up now…Happy feeling and totem hunting! Hopefully the things in your life have meaning for you, as much as for me.

    Thank you for sharing your insights and experience with the white spider the feathers and the mention of the number 666. I have had many experiences with the spider and recently a very powerful experience with the white spider. She dropped down seemingly from the sky, right near my hand at night time when the moon was full. During of time of change and choices. During at time where I was struggling to feel. Anytime I see spider I am reminded also, that everything is going to be alright. This time I am being reminded that I need to trust my intuition and do things differently. I also need to not run and escape and not fear the unknown.

    Thank you for sharing your experience, so close to mine:).

    justrecently I became more in touch with my spiritual side and I decided to go on a walk after feeling a bit overwhelmed in honestly scared when I return from my walk I took off my hat and I took off my shirt and all my clothing that I had and I look down on the ground and there was a small white spider my first instinct was to step on it but then I remembered asking my spirit guides for a sign of better bettering myself so I ended up taking the spider and releasing it outside and then I looked up this and honestly I found a lot of comfort in the fact that that’s why he revealed itself to me cuz I haven’t necessarily been making the best choices in life so thank you for your post it really helped me

    I woke up this morning with a cream colored spider the size of a quarter next to my face, I blew it off my bed. It matched my sheets. When googling about spiders and meanings and all the superstition, I’ve decided it was definitely a sign considering the ongoings in My world.
