Weaving a Dream - (Mandalas for Peace series) - © Sue O'Kieffe 2008

Spiders are nature's mandala makers, and autumn is a perfect time to witness their beauty. When I googled for spider medicine stories, I discovered in many cultures spiders are considered weavers of magic. They weave a web that remind us of the interconnectedness of life. Did you know that the spider web was believed to give the alphabet to man, so that we could communicate with each other, all over the world? And here we are, doing just that.
Someone who has the power of the spider will see enhanced balance, creative energy, and writing skills. Magic and intuition are also all part of this totem’s medicine.
I like having spiders around me, and it takes a lot for me to remove them from my home.
This mandala is my contribution for the Creativity intent for the Mandalas for Peace project. If you do not know about the project, be sure to read about it here.
I'm enjoying Leah's AEDM project and how much fun it is to challenge myself to try something new (nearly) every day.
