THE WEB OF LIFE
'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]
Read the last Daily Message titled, THE PERFECT STRANGER
If you hadn't noticed yet, I've been ram-jamming on the website and getting my 'daily' work completed as quickly as possible. I'm focused, I'm on my game and I'm taking no prisoners. Sometimes it takes a swat on the butt, a two-by-four against the head or some other physically painful thing in order to wake you up and take notice. Well that's exactly what happened to me.
Several days ago I was actually bitten by a brown recluse spider. As holistic and green as I think, breathe and live, even I know when antibiotics are in order. A brown recluse spider bite is a very serious matter because it can cause cell and tissue death (necrosis) and can even cause loss of a limb if not properly treated. I'll leave all of the symptoms, treatment and gory details of a brown recluse spider bite to your own Curious George research. (winky wink) It's definitely nothing to take lightly. Within less than 12 hours of getting started on antibiotics I already began feeling better although I was still walking with a severe limp. The bite was on my thigh. Folks, the swelling of this bite had grown from a dime sized nodule to bigger than the circumference of a coffee cup.
Yesterday morning I decided to take a run to the hardware store with the Scorpion King. Minutes after we got out of the car, I suddenly stopped in the middle of the parking lot and said, "I need to think like an Indian about this spider bite. I haven't been thinking right the whole time." I went on to tell him about Spider Medicine and what it represents in my Life and how I've always used Spider Medicine to assist me in the past. I said, "If I'm right about what I think this is about and I got 'the get', then something is going to pop and pop real soon. If I'm right, then everything is going to be just fine."
creativity, weaving, infinity
Not an hour later when we returned home, my thigh felt very strange and wet. If I didn't know any better I'd of thought that I peed my pants. Sorry about the details here folks but it's important. It felt as though moisture was running down my pant leg. When I pulled down my jeans, the bandage over the spider bite was soaked with blood and pus. Well, I did say that if I got "the get" then something would pop and it sure did. The lesion POPPED and began releasing the toxins. If I had more spring in my step I would have been jumping for joy. When I showed the Scorpion King I said, "SEE, all of that weird stuff that I do and think, well this is how it works baby! Now that's getting, THE GET." Folks, I may be out there, but I know what the heck I'm talking about. (winky wink)
Interestingly enough I was talking to a client this morning (Elaine) from I think Maryland and after we finished talking about what she called for then we just started chatting up a storm. Elaine shared with me a recent experience with a cicada (a huge insect) that had literally attached itself to her hand. It clung to her and held on for dear life. The great thing is Elaine understood exactly how this cicada related to her Natal Chart just as I understood how Spider Medicine related to my Natal Chart. The moment of 'the get' was not only a reality check, it was life changing, but why in the world do we humans wait until something hurts to get it?
Needless to say, all of the swelling has gone down and I'm just dealing with a nasty lesion about the size of a quarter that still needs careful attention. And to facilitate the process I'm back on my game, typing my brains out and weaving my infinite web of creativity. Okay here's 'the get' folks . . Spider Medicine . . creating, weaving . . Creating, Weaving . . CREATING WEAVING . . my web . . My Web . . MY WEB . . . CREATING AND WEAVING MY WEB SITE! The world-wide-web sure is an infinite amount of space and I received my dose of Spider Medicine loud and clear! Lesson learned.
creativity, weaving, infinity
