I just experienced an amazing event. It was magical and enlightening.
I was watching the movie, “Epic” which is now my favorite animated movie. It takes place in the forest and well; you know me and my love of fern and forest. This movie is a highly recommended viewing.
Of course, there is a dark element as the lead characters are thrown into a dark, foreboding looking cave. At the time, I had the thought, “If they run into giant spiders, I will just fast forward it.” Spiders are not my favorite critter. And, I will avoid any sight of them!
I am sitting in the dark watching this movie on my laptop, when all of a sudden, the smoke alarm goes off. One, two, three, four loud beeps. I am surprised because I had cooked supper hours ago. What was going on?
So, I turned on the lights. The alarm stops and now right before me, on the fold-down table, is a very large creepy spider! It was huge about the size of a quarter. I calmly, (“Um, very impressive Sandra Lee, you being calm about now,”) picked up my shoe and smacked it. “It” fell on the carpet. I quickly opened the door and threw out anything that was on the floor under where it had fallen; fake plant, throw rug, etc. Just in case, it survived and could have crawled into or on.
I did not find a body anywhere, which did not help my confidence of it being gone. A friend came over and helped me to further check with a flashlight all the nooks and crannies to no avail. I surmised that it had indeed fallen or crawled on the fake plant or rug and was now outside.
I believe with no doubt that the fear I expressed earlier had manifested that which I feared.
I also believe that unseen aid could and did set off the fire alarm. I hear about these incidents on the radio and read about it all the time. However, when this happened to me, I was blown away. In addition, if that alarm had not gone off, I would not have turned on the light and been able to see what was possibly threatening right front of me.
I regret having to kill that spider but so it goes with humans who hurt or kill something that we fear; doesn’t it? That is not to justify this murder although it does help me understand my fear and why I reacted so violently.
The greater gift of this incident is that I now have a very clear belief and knowing without a doubt, that I am always under grace and safety because my connection with the unseen world is available to me or anybody. Just ask for help and guidance. Know that you are safe and loved.
