Spider Fluids

Clears Throats and Dry Spells

It was in the twilight hours between 4 and 6 am several weeks ago, that I was awakened by my dream abruptly ending. As I lie there I couldn't help but review the details flowing through my mind. Perhaps the memory should have left me with a feeling of fear, but instead there was a deep knowing that something really powerful was being processed by my consciousness.

I then got out of bed, made some coffee, and went outside to my back yard. I looked out as the dark sky offered sparkling distant stars and pondered the details. simultaneously I looked them up on my phone! ( is a go to of mine on such occasions.) The details of my dream, like many, are a bit scrambled, so I will do my best to relay them to you as we search for the meaning. Here is the dream.

I found myself in a parking lot that was empty of cars but had many people. I was aware that they were all women, most of whom I did not know, however, there was one I did know. it was really close friend I had in the past that I do not have a relationship with anymore. I asked her what she was doing there, but all she did was stare at me. Another woman who I didn't know came over and said that she won the contest, and that I did not. I turned from her and saw a house close by. I noticed especially that it was all wood, The siding, roof, and window panes and all were the same color brown. suddenly, I was inside the house. I went into the kitchen and the same friend was there along with Hugh Jackman as the wolverine, and a bodybuilder woman I follow. There was talking but not to me, and I remember feeling like they were not aware of my presence. I was just a fly on the wall. In the next moment, I was walking up the stairs. I went all the way up to the top floor. As I stepped into the room I was aware that I was in the attic of the house. The far side of the room dawned some windows and a four poster bed with fabric draped nicely. As I walked towards it I felt something on my face, a cob web. As I turned to the right I saw several spiders coming down their webs toward my head. I was startled by this and swept at them to get them away from me. In the next moment it was as if I was standing outside my body. I was watching myself from behind, but perhaps from above. As I watched myself I saw in horror, one spider had landed on my left shoulder and was crawling up towards that back of my head, into my hair. In that moment I was back in my body. I felt it crawling. Then it bit me. Hard. It's poison venom going into me made me fall to the ground. I was immobilized. Laying there I couldn't speak but a whisper, help me, help me. That is when I woke up.

As I said, I went out back and looked up the gory details of my dream on dream moods. com. If you are interested in the specifics I have listed them below. But the best part came next. It was starting to get light out as I contemplated my dreams meaning when I looked over to grab my coffee and noticed which cup I grabbed.

Dream Details

  • To dream that you are in parking lot suggests that you need to slow down and take time from your daily activities.

  • To see a house in your dream represents your own soul and self. Specific rooms in the house indicate a specific aspect of your psyche. In general, the attic represents your intellect, the basement represents the subconscious, etc.

  • To see a kitchen in your dream signifies your need for warmth, spiritual nourishment and healing. It may also be symbolic of the nurturing mother or the way that you are for your loved ones. Alternatively the kitchen represents a transformation. Something new or life altering is about to occur. The dream could also be telling you that if "you can't stand the heat, then you need to get out of the kitchen".

  • To see an attic in your dream represents hidden memories or repressed thoughts that are being revealed. It also symbolizes your mind, spirituality, and your connection to the higher Self. Alternatively, it signifies difficulties in your life that may hinder you from attaining your goals and aspirations. However, after a long period of struggle, you will overcome these difficulties.

  • To dream that you are bitten by a spider represents a conflict with your mother or some dominant female figure in your life. The dream may be a metaphor for a devouring mother or the feminine power to possess and entrap. Perhaps you are feeling trapped by some relationship.

  • To dream that you are immobile signifies feelings of being trapped. Alternatively, it shows that you are too rigid in your attitudes and decisions.

Symbolically, dreaming that you are paralyzed means you are feeling helpless or pinned down in some aspects or circumstances of your waking life. You may feel unable to deal with a situation or change anything. Alternatively, the dream suggests that you are feeling emotionally paralyzed. You have difficulties expressing your feelings.

Spiritual Meaning of the Spider

spiders represent Creativity, Feminine Energy, the cycles of life (their bodies are shaped like the infinity symbol), personal growth, rebirth, Self awareness, & being self sufficient.

I feel my dream represents all of these aspects for me. in the past I have experienced situations that have taught me that it is not safe to be creative, and expressive. The parts of me that love sharing my ideas with the world will only bring me trouble.

I feel that my dream shows that even though I have overcome these experiences, there is still feelings of grief that need to be processed. I feel that the lack of support and nourishment i have experienced from the foundational female relationships in my life has been my biggest obstacle. I realized that I had still repressed emotional trauma from certain experiences and I must give myself stillness and quiet time to grieve. It is time to weave a new web of creativity from the reborn self with fresh silk. While watching myself die in my dream, a deep peace filled me, it felt like a letting go. No need to fight the good fight anymore. The battle is done. Death does not mean you lose, it means you have evolved. I am still integrating this particular transformation and I am doing well. It is right on time for the letting go of old structures in this fall season and I will be ready for what is next.

In thinking about this topic of weaving webs- I have created a video and pod cast about how we weave webs. We use our energy meridians, relationship cords wanted and unwanted, and our bodies fascial system to connect us to our creative processes and how they are part of our "webbing". You can check it out soon right here:)))
