I'm pretty sure you'd sleep better if you got rid of the spider problem in your living space.

What if you're picking up the spidey pheremones? I "sense" spiders, too. I've always wondered how a nearby spider could wake me from a sound sleep. It's not like they're making noise.

I'll pick up a snake and move him gentely to the woods, but for no reason at all, I can 'just know' a spider is ---> over there and I move in the other direction.

This occurs even when the baby birds are altogether unfamiliar of the existence of hawks and yet they react quite negatively. How is it that these baby birds know to be afraid of their natural predator?
Indeed, this fear is a very primal one. But I have to ask, just how big were spiders in prehistoric times? Were they much, much larger? Is their evidence that spiders "hunted" early man? How did we develop this primal fear?

I dont know if this will help at all, but everyone sleeps with their eyes open a tad. You are probably seeing them in your sleep so your dreams go with it. Kind of like sometimes if your alarm clock is going off it will play into your dreams.
I hope you get your spider problem fixed. That would totaly creep me out.
Toadmund.. daddylong legs are acceptable.

Then on the Sunday morning i woke up for no apparent reason, then looked toward my top bedside dresser draw (which was half open)... and then that horrific moment when the legs started to creep out one by one *shudders*
I doubt it was paranormal, but it was still a pretty freaky series of coincidences
