Last night on our way out to dinner, it was still daylight when Elliot backed the car down the driveway. I popped open the visor to put on some lipstick. The light came on and I saw another reflecting in the glass. A medium size spider in the far corner seemed to be fixated on the mirror. Startled, I quickly closed the lid, knowing she would get out the same way she got in. Realizing that nature delivers messages in your face, I sheepishly took this one to heart. What was this spider doing gazing at her reflection, shut away from the world. Clearly that was no place to express creativity which a spider is known for. Create. Create. Create. is the spider's symbolism.
I sunk down in the seat knowing my creativity has been at an all time low.
Then, on our way to the restaurant, I noticed the church marquis on the corner. WHO AM I?
The lesson was accumulating.
I thought about the spider in the mirror. I wondered, Am I just the face I see in the looking glass?
This week's Bible lesson quoted Psalm 90: "...we spend our years as a tale that is told." Spider teaches that we weave the world around us by our thoughts, words, and deeds. We are the "writers" of our own destiny.
Everything that we do now is weaving what we will experience. There are no neutral thoughts. Spider teaches us how to maintain a balance between the material and the spiritual; feminine and masculine; past and future.
This morning I checked on the spider, to my delight she had moved on, having delivered the message.
Today my card is the Angel of Vision. A little angel with an eye chart like this:
Synchronicity was at play. Yesterday I started the lessons from A Course in Miracles. The first set of lessons are all about "seeing." Something I've been working on for the past several months.
So the spider was a reminder of my True identity. I am made in the image and likeness of God. I am not material. I am spiritual. Therefore, I can only reflect the attributes of God. A reflection can never be separated from its Creator. And reflection has not one shred of materiality in it.
To think like God is to share
His certainty of what you are,
and to create like Him is to share
the perfect Love He shares with you.

Enjoy your day with the Angels. Watch for the ways angel messages are being delivered to you.
Love and blessings,
