I have weird dreams on a regular basis. Wait. I have CRAZY dreams on a regular basis. (I’ve talked about that before.) Well Sunday night was no exception. This time I was walking naked through the grocery story while talking on my cell phone. And I hated that I didn’t have clothes on, but I thought everyone should just have to deal with it. Then upon leaving said store I was driving home and was pulled over by a police officer. I was trying to negotiate getting out of a ticket for flashing my brights at someone who had theirs on. I was also hoping he wouldn’t notice me being sans clothing. I don’t really remember too much after that, I think I woke up. But I do remember that at some point – prior to going to the store — I was standing outside on a deck and there were bugs falling like leaves in the fall. And these bugs I noticed were white spiders. I remember thinking in my dream how peculiar it seemed.
Yesterday morning, after I wrote my 3(+) pages, I went to my handy dream interpretation guide to look up the meaning of spiders (no particular color — because who dreams of colored spiders) and I found this:
To dream of a spider represents feeling trapped or hopeless. A negative situation that feels inevitable or impossible to escape. Beliefs about things that you think are permanent or will never go away.
Alternatively, spiders may reflect irrational beliefs. Powerful insecurities that prevent you from doing what you want in life. Irrational fears that prevent you from enjoying yourself, or powerful desires for things you don’t believe you can ever have.
Positively, a spider may represent a positive area of your life that is intricate and patient. Inevitable success based on skill. This would usually be represented by blue or white spiders.
Folks I am working hard these days… and this feels like a good omen that it’s going to pay off!
P.S. The police officer bit has to do with discipline (hello Morning Pages challenge!).
P.P.S. It took everything in me to be able to search for a picture of a white spider. Me & bugs (of any kind) aren’t exactly what you would call a good combination.
