Garden Spider by Cynthia Bergsbaken Photography
Have you ever read the book titled “Charlotte’s Web” by E. B. White? I remember in second grade, our teacher took time every day to read us this story. It’s about a pig and a spider that become best friends. The spider helps the pig escape his fate of being slaughtered. Throughout helping Wilber, the pig, the spider mother was guarding her egg sack, waiting to die. The story made a big impact on me.
Well, a couple of summers ago, I had the blessing of watching a large mother spider live her life.
At first, I was, “yuk” a huge spider. But as I watched her form a spider web in my basement window well, I was curious. The spider picked a corner of my window well to create her life. She spun her web and each day she waited for food to fly in to it. As the summer grew warmer, I noticed a large, dark tan colored sack sitting in the middle of her web. As I looked closer, I realized she was soon to be a mother.
Each day she stood close to the cottony looking bag. She sat in the hot sun, guarding the sack. She sat through heavy rain storms watching over her family. Each night she remained close to guard it from any intruders. As she guarded her family, I noticed she was becoming thinner. She did not eat or move while guarding her soon to be children.
Then one day, as in Charlotte’s Web, she fell and died. She never did see her children being born. The egg sack, soon after her death, broke open allowing many baby spiders to crawl off in to the wilderness to follow in their mother’s footsteps.
As with people, we see animals and other creatures demonstrate love-love for their family- their children. They also sacrifice themselves for their children. The love of a parent!
Next time you see a spider, a little critter, or a plant, remember that they too love. People are not the only ones who feel love. Take time to observe nature and find the beauty in it.

Receiving Reiki healing is a great experience. But like any other form of service you receive, it is wise to feel comfortable and confident about and around your practitioner.
Here are a few tips about choosing the right Reiki practitioner for you.
*Meeting with a new Reiki practitioner before committing to taking their service is a must. Asking questions not only about the Reiki service they provide, but a little about the person. Each Reiki practitioner has a different personality and different beliefs, just like anyone else in the world. I would suggest you meet up with the new practitioner days ahead of any thought of receiving a Reiki session. This way, you can get to know the person and understand: what Reiki techniques they use, if they are combining other energy type work with their Reiki, what is the type of Reiki they are using, understand the difference between Reiki types, Get to know the person.
I have read articles from people that have received their f…
What is Ho'Oponopono and why should it interest me?
This technique is an ancient Hawaiian technique for clearing out your Subconscious mind. The Subconscious mind is also known as our "Inner child". Our Subconscious minds contain all the information and memories of our existence. Our Subconscious minds are like computers collecting all the data that comes to us as energy. Energy that is equivalent to emotions, thoughts, ideas, thinking, etc. This technique was brought to the public by Ihaleakala Hew Len, PhD.
Dr. Hew Len is a psychologist who was working with mentally ill criminals in Hawaii using this technique to cure them. This technique uses "love" to heal. It sounds like a fairy tale, but it is proven through Dr. Hew Len's accomplishments of healing all the criminals in Hawaii's hospital. He did this without even seeing the patient!
This is just a quick back ground of this technique. My intention is to actually give you the technique to star…
When looking at our present life's experiences, we truly do not have all the facts. Our vision is clouded.
I have been recently looking at some of my childhood beliefs and fears. I was able to feel how I felt at certain moments as a child. I have seen how childhood beliefs and fears are able to affect us in our present lives.
I was a 4-year old child that spent my days playing and being with my Mom. My brother was in school, while my Dad was at work all day. For a few days, I was left without my Mom's attention due to her stay in the hospital. One day, my Dad, my brother and I, with excitement, drove to the hospital to pick up my Mom and our new baby sister. As we drove home, I got the idea I could take care of my sister the way I did for my dolls. I asked my Mom if I could help take care of her. My Mom told me I was too young. That day was the start of my beliefs of rejection, being left-out, unworthiness, unloved, and jealousy. My Mom spent her day giving much lo…
