Create Your Universe

“You create your own universe as you go along.”

-Winston Churchill

Winston knew what he was talking about. We do create our own universes as we live our lives, each and every one of us. Our attitudes determine our thoughts, and our thoughts are what attract like things. If our thoughts attract new circumstances, people, and events to take place in our lives, then what are we thinking about? We should be thinking about things that inspire us to reaching our dreams. Most of us unfortunately are thinking about things that stress us out. Like work, our personal problems, money issues, anything that we are concerned about, and it holds us back and it holds us down. We need to stop focusing on these nerve-racking topics. When we think about these bad, stressful thoughts it only puts strain out our bodies. So we need to be conscience of this when it happens and push those thoughts out of our heads. Remove all negative thoughts from your mind. You want to feel only good feelings, and have only positive thoughts for as much as you can help it. Choose what you’d like to create for your universe. Live your dreams; they can become your reality. Let’s live the way we were meant to be. How will your experience be? Remember, you create it as you go along.

Spider Dreams

In the last week, including last night, I have had two separate dreams of spiders which have caused me to jump up scared out of my sleep. So twice now I have had spider dreams that have literally scared me awake out of my sleep, jumping up and waking my spouse as well. So, believing in metaphysical subjects I wanted to look up what it meant to have nightmares of spiders. So I thought I would share. Here are some meanings from a few websites:


To see a spider in your dream indicates that you are feeling like an outsider in some situation. Or perhaps you want to keep your distance and stay away from an alluring and tempting situation.  The spider is also symbolic of feminine power or an overbearing mother figure in your life. Alternatively, a spider refers to a powerful force protecting you against  your self-destructive behavior.
If you kill a spider in your dream, then it symbolizes misfortune and bad luck.
To see a spider spinning a web in your dream signifies that you will be rewarded for your hard work. You will be promoted in your job or recognized for your achievement in a difficult task.  Spiders are also a symbol of creativity due to the intricate webs they spin. 
On a negative note, spiders may indicate a feeling of being entangled or trapped in a sticky or clingy relationship. It represents some ensnaring and controlling force. You feel that someone or some situation is sucking the life right out of you. 
Alternatively, if a spider is spinning a web in your dream, then it could be a metaphor for the world wide web and global communication.
To see a spider climbing up a wall in your dream denotes that your desires will be soon be realized.
To see spider eggs in a web suggest that you are not able to fully acknowledge your potential. You are being held back from expressing yourself. 
To dream that you are bitten by a spider represents a conflict with your mother or some dominant female figure in your life. The dream may be a metaphor for a devouring mother or the feminine power to possess and entrap. Perhaps you are feeling trapped by some relationship. 
To eat a spider or dream that a spider is in your mouth symbolizes your control over a situation. You are not afraid to exert your dominance in a relationship.


All spiders except tarantulas are omens of good luck. If you see a spider climbing the wall you will have your dearest wish come true and if you see a spider spinning a web you will have an increase in your income due to hard work. A large spider sitting on a telephone shows you will have a phone call that will benefit you greatly. The larger the spider, the bigger the rewards. 


To dream of a spider denotes that you are being ignored and overlooked by others. Perhaps you feel that it is best to avoid someone or something that will only influence you negatively. The spider also represents female strengths and intensity. It may be implying that there is some entity trying to keep you safe from your own actions. If you kill a spider, it indicates that you will soon face hardships and obstacles.

To see a spider spinning a web implies that your energies and exertions will result in great gifts. This can be in the form of career advancement, elevation in social status, or prosperity. Spiders represent imagination and artistic nature.

On a negative note, spiders may suggest that you feel stuck in a negative relationship. Perhaps your significant other is being too dependent on you. It can indicate that you are being influenced by someone or something that is detrimental to your happiness or safety.

To see a spider climbing up a wall in your dream implies that you will achieve your goals in the near future.

To dream that you are bitten by a spider symbolizes an issue between you and a female associate. You may be feeling entangled in a relationship that you no longer want to be a part of. 

To dream of a spider, denotes that you will be careful and energetic
in your labors, and fortune will be amassed to pleasing proportions.
To see one building its web, foretells that you will be happy
and secure in your own home.
To kill one, signifies quarrels with your wife or sweetheart.
If one bites you, you will be the victim of unfaithfulness and will suffer
from enemies in your business.
If you dream that you see many spiders hanging in their webs around you,
foretells most favorable conditions, fortune, good health and friends.
To dream of a large spider confronting you, signifies that your elevation
to fortune will be swift, unless you are in dangerous contact.
To dream that you see a very large spider and a small one coming
towards you, denotes that you will be prosperous, and that you
will feel for a time that you are immensely successful; but if
the large one bites you, enemies will steal away your good fortune.
If the little one bites you, you will be harassed with little spites
and jealousies. To imagine that you are running from a large spider,
denotes you will lose fortune in slighting opportunities.
If you kill the spider you will eventually come into fair estate.
If it afterwards returns to life and pursues you, you will be
oppressed by sickness and wavering fortunes.
For a young woman to dream she sees gold spiders crawling around her,
foretells that her fortune and prospect for happiness will improve,
and new friends will surround her.

Live a Little

Stressed out, running late, racing down the interstate
Spilled hot coffee down the front of my jeans
It's work, work, pay the rent, money and my time's spent
Not a minute left for me to be me
Been going like nothing can wait
I gotta get my priorities straight
I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Find a girl that brings my whole world to a stop
Live a little, love a lot
Friday night, here we go, do a little do-si-do
Kick back, have a laugh, catch my breath
Tell the band, slow it down, there she is, think I found
Maybe Miss Wonderful, I haven't met yet

It just hit me like a wrecking ball
She's giving me a wake up call
I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Find a girl that brings my whole world to a stop
Live a little, love a lot
Step back, smell the rose, feel the sand between your toes
Unplug, unwind, step out in the sunshine
I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Find a girl that brings my whole world to a stop
Live a little
I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Take the girl, get a map and pick any old dot
Live a little, we need to live a little, love a lot
