Greetings today from the world of Spirit! I am Merlin, the Master Teacher of Rose, who writes this blog and shares with you the wisdom of her experiences. It is not vain to call it wisdom–you each possess deep wisdom and understanding, every one of you, as a child of the Universe and Its marvelous lessons. What wisdom can you share today with your fellow human beings? It may not seem wisdom to you, but there are many things that you have learned on your life journey, and every time you share a piece of your experience with someone else in a loving, compassionate way, you are passing on your own wisdom. So it is for Rose…so it is for me…and so it is for all of you.
It was hard for my little one to get out of her own way today to allow me to come through to speak. This is natural, as all of you have thoughts that interrupt your quieting mind when you try to focus on Spirit. Never think that this is not normal and that you therefore cannot connect with your spirit teachers and helpers. The logical mind simply likes to be in charge and does not take kindly to be gently set aside. The more you meditate, however, and the more you take control of your mind, the easier the meditative state is to reach. When random thoughts cross through your mind, do not become caught in them. Simply let them drift through and bring your attention back to your focus, whatever that may be, your intention for the meditation experience. Some days, you will be more successful than others. Do not give up! With practice, you will grow more adept. Life is all about learning–sometimes you go forward, and sometimes you stay static. It is all important for your progression. Mastery of anything is a continuous process. You in the physical state call me Master Merlin, and yet I, too, am still learning and growing, and in that, I rejoice! Never feel as if you are not worthy because you feel you are not moving forward. You are, with every breath you take, with every mistake and misstep along the path–these choices usually garner even more growth, because you learn what you should NOT do. Blessings abound in everything if you can learn to see them with spiritual eyes!
Now, a bit of levity: this one with whom I work had a hard time focusing today to allow me to speak because her mind kept turning to the spider that resides between her window panes, right next to her favorite meditation spot. Her husband has cleaned out the window before, but the spider keeps returning, and this bothers my special student more than you can know. She is deathly afraid of spiders. Imagine, being afraid of something so much smaller than she is, something that she could squash in an instant! I do not make fun of her, do not misunderstand–I know this fear is real, and it is irrational, as she tells herself all the time. So many have irrational fears like this. What to do with these fears? How to overcome them? This fear of spiders may seem insignificant, but it has a deeper meaning. Spider…what does she symbolize? Look at the way she spins her web, these amazing strands that pour from her body and weave together into an extraordinary home for her. What an incredible concoction is a spider web! Beautiful and strong and yes, deadly too, for those creatures trapped in it. Do you see the symbolism here? My little student is afraid of her own ability to create, her own ability to spin something beautiful and strong and powerful. Why would she be afraid of that? The spider’s web is the creature’s livelihood, the way that she eats and maintains her strength in her little world. Why would Rose be afraid of this concept? Is Rose afraid that the web she spins won’t be strong enough, that she still will not receive the sustenance she needs? Is she afraid that something will destroy her web, that someone won’t like it and will plot to take it down? She can learn a lesson from the industrious spider who has taken up residence in her window. This tenacious creature keeps coming back, even when her web is not accepted and is instead destroyed. She rebuilds her web, determined to make her place again, understanding it is within her nature and her right as a spider to have her web, no matter what anyone else thinks. And when she rebuilds it, the food source is returned, and she is able to sustain herself. She is able to honor her spider-nature. Rose can learn from this beautiful creature, and so can you all. What are you afraid to create in your world? Is your fear holding you back from putting forth the energy? Is your self-esteem lacking? What can you do to boost yourself and your connection to your own inner strength? Be resilient, loved ones, and bounce back! You must honor the song in your heart, as this spider does, the song that tells you what you must be doing. You will recognize that song when you feel joy in the doing and stop worrying about the end result. Honoring that song is being creative, the true energy of what the lovely spider represents!
What will you create in your world? Why do you need someone else’s permission to create it? If you ask Creator to help you serve only the highest and best vibration and intention, then your creation will do just that. Do not allow fear to hold you back. Spin your web, and know that it will be beautiful!
I thank you all for being with me today, and I send you blessings and love from the world of Spirit. Be well, happy, and at peace!
