I am in the process of developing a paradigm involving my favourite fear, spiders. Living in New Zealand, I hardly ever see large spiders. Yes, we have them, but they mostly hide underground and are seldom seen. We only have one poisonous spider, two if you count a few black widows who reside around the ports, and quite a few white tails that aren't so much poisonous as simply very annoying.
I have always loved spiders, but remain afraid of them due to popular culture painting them so unfairly. Recently I have found myself deeply drawn to them, so much so that I have begun to incorporate them into my daily practice. Having done a lot of Hedge Riding in the past, I've begun to project into what I believe the realm of spiders to be like - a secret world, of hidden places, so dark and warm. Recently I had a major success when I felt my whole form turn into a pillar of spiders, each spider then scuttling away to somewhere in the room. Seeing out of so many eyes was fascinating, to say the least.
In honour of my new paradigm I've commissioned an occult jeweller to make me a spider pendant. It will be made out of silver, a locket holding a red jasper, the stone held in place by a silver spider. I will post images of this beautiful pendant once it has been made.
