I had the most vivid meditation to date yesterday:
I saw myself standing amongst the stars. I was just admiring them, star gazing. I noticed that some stars had people living in them. Some did
(I thought when I saw that about the constellations, signs of the Zodiac)
As I was standing there, I saw a person walk towards me. He was a huge dark man who wore a robe. The robe smouldered
he was so dark. As I
looked at him, I noticed there were all these baby spiders on the robe.
He was a terrifying sight but I wasn't scared. I just stood there quite in awe of him. He took off the robe and told me I would need to wear it.
I put the robe on. He pointed for me to go into this dark place. There is no light there at all except for my own. As soon as I put the robe on, I
could not see my body, only my head which gave off a little light. (Oh, I wish I could draw, it would make it easier to explain)
I walked into the darkest place I have ever been, it is so dark it is difficult to see. There was only me in this dark place or so I thought. I
looked to see if I could see anything. There was only one tiny little star there.
I saw some gas swirling around and walked into it to see what it was. It was the beginning of a planet or new life in this dark place.
I walked back out of the gas and just stood in the dark for a while, wondering why I was there.
I then saw, this enormous spider come out of the dark, as if it had been hiding there and it came over to me. I thought to myself, "oh, maybe these
baby spiders belong to her?" So, I took the baby spiders off the robe and gave them to her.
All the baby spiders ran off and climbed on her back. I felt really happy. I was so happy to see that the spiders found their Mother.
I took off the robe and walked back out of the dark place, leaving the Mother Spider and the babies there.
Now, this is where it gets fascinating:
I came out of the dark and walked back into the night sky again. I just sat there looking at all of the stars and life there.
Then I saw the Mother Spider come along with all the baby spiders. She was busy. It was like she hadn't been in that part of the sky for a long
time and so she had much work to do.
I watched her work. She was going through the sky taking stars out of it. Wrapping them up in a web and pulling them through the sky to put them in
one area. She literally pulled or sorted out a third of the stars and put them all together in one spot.
I saw her then, wrapping those stars up like they were eggs and tossing them down onto the planets. Taking them out of the night sky. It was amazing
to see that.
Then after she had done that, she just sat there in the night sky keeping a check on everything.
I saw one star zoom off to go to Earth, she caught it before it got there and placed it in her web.
From this I felt like I had met the Mother of All Living.
I had heard that the Hopi's had a creation myth about a Mother Spider:
In the beginning there were only two: Tawa, the Sun God, and Spider Woman (Kokyanwuhti), the Earth Goddess. All the mysteries and the powers in
the Above belonged to Tawa, while Spider Woman controlled the magic of the Below... Hopi
I feel ecstatic today. I believe I have been shown something that is very special.
I have always believed in the Mother. Religion killed the Mother. Without the Mother, there would be no life.
The Tarantula nebula is the largest emission nebula in the sky and also one of the largest known star-forming regions in all the Milky Way's
neighbouring galaxies. Located about 170,000 light-years away, in the southern constellation Dorado (The Swordfish), it can be seen with the
unaided eye.Cosmic Spider is Good Mother
