Weekly Challenge #291: “Happy Halloween!”
Monday was Halloween! Okay, here in Germany it is getting more popular, but not nearly as it is in US. Since we live pretty alone in the countrysides, there were no kids at our door asking for “trick or treat”. Well, maybe also because we have instead of a bell at our gate three big dogs always happy about visitors, but showing this with barking and jumping – not everybody might understand that right:)
So this week’s challenge # 291 is to create a Halloween themed tile. I didn’t read the challenge exact enough to know what the challenge is all about. So I missed the part to tangle on a black tile. So I just went with the Halloween theme, but of course when I realized my faux pas I tangled another one on a black tile.
The first tile I did a spider (string:)). A spider with its prey “Purk”. I don’t know if I ever can tangle Purk again without thinking that there might something cocooned. I really like spiders, I love there webs – a stunning creation.
The spider as an “power animal” in the Neoshamanism is a symbol for creativity and the weaver of fate, she is the totemic symbol of the Mother, strength and gentleness combined.
She teaches us balance between the past and the future, physical and spirit, male and female. She awakens creative sensibilities and reminds us that the past is always interwoven with the future. Her body is shaped like an eight, symbolizing infinite possibilities of creation and she has eight legs, which represent the 4 winds of change and the 4 directions of the medicine wheel.
The spider weaves her beautifully engineered web with the extraordinary capability of creating. We weave our reality, the spider shows us the gift of creation, that we have the power to create what happens in our lives. Having the power to weave our own web, means we have the power to make a positive and happy life.
By giving the spider careful thought and consideration, we can see that we are connected to all life, and that there is no past and no future, only the infinite now. The spider awakes our intuitive creative senses and encourage us to design the fabric of our lives from our souls original intention.
Spider’s message is that you are an infinite being who will continue to weave patterns of life and living throughout time.
Isn’t this nice to think of, when you see a spider next time? However it is worth to have a closer look at her amazing web.
After I finished my Spider tile, I did another black Halloween tile, a bloody one! And even though I mostly avoid tangling on black tiles I had really fun doing it. Maybe I should get my black tile tangled more often.
So here come the gazing “Borbz” eyes;)
A nice week to everyone and thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate it so much!
