the spider lady...

It's quite strange really that I behave erratically around certain spiders but not others, especially as 1 of the spirits to approach me as a child was the Spider Woman after I was given a dream-catcher by a private teacher aged 9yrs old. At the time of the dream-catchers arrival I was completely fearless around spiders but all that changed a year later when some boys bullied me and did terrible things to me, enclosing me into small places throwing spiders on me and smashing them into my hair etc. and going home to a mother who could care less and refused me to shower the dead spiders out of my hair, so I had to sleep with them on me, some weren't even dead, some stayed in my hair and ended up crawling on my face in the night during sleep.
Why am I sharing this with you?
Because I am recalling something I've read recently from YOUR magazine, there was an article called "Why we should love spiders" and I instantly thought "OK, convince me" - the first sentence said -
There's more to spiders than meets the eye, says Dave Naish, education manager at the Bristol Zoo. For example, a jumping spider can leap 25 times it's own length, the length of a football pitch!
When I read that I thought "You're going to have to do more than convince me now"!
Bearing in mind, this wasn't the most appropriate time to read this article - WHILST IN BED!
My main arachnoid phobia came from the jumping spiders because those were the ones the boys threw onto me and were hard to flick off, not only that but the slightest movement seems to put them into STALK mode, it's hilarious because relatives and friends have tried so hard over the years to tell me that those jumping spiders just don't jump that far to get you if you're 3ft from a wall, now I know it's pure bullshit, scientifically proven so.
I've tried to work with the spider lady again in recent spell-craft as I remember the tight relationship I had with her and the kind of loving relationship I used to have with spiders. Unfortunately when I do those sorts of spell-workings large spiders come to me just to hang around and it makes me too nervous to focus!
