What a Web of Discovery Synchronicity Can Weave

The "Peacock" spider in action.
I came across this "Peacock" spider by accident.
I had never heard about, or seen one of these strange creatures before in my life.
I was wondering what exotic part of the world this spider was from, and as it turns out it is basically found in my backyard.  
It lives around Sydney, Australia. 
The only reason I found this clip was because I was looking for a trailer to a movie called Peacock starring Susan Sarandon.
I put the word "Peacock" into Google search for video and found the "Peacock" spider clip.
I became interested in Susan Sarandon's films after reading this comment at the Synchrosecrets blog on this post -
 "Next to that ornament is a violin – or a fiddle?- 
that I inherited from my first editor, Chris Cox, after he died from AIDS. 
It turned out that Chris, like me, collected unusual ornaments in his travels. 
Shortly after his death in the early 1990s, a package arrived filled with his Christmas ornaments. 
I’m not sure who sent them – his sister, his fellow editor, Cheryl Woodruff, or his angel of mercy and close friend, Susan Sarandon, who paid for Chris’s private nursing care in his final days."
Oddly enough, Susan had narrated a short animated film called  Little Miss Spider.
 and did the voice of Miss Spider in Ronald Dahl's  
James and the Giant Peach.
  • Glory
  • Vision
  • Royalty
  • Spirituality
  • Awakening
  • Immortality
  • Refinement
  • Incorruptibility
"In Greco-Roman mythology the Peacock is identified with Hera (Juno) who created the Peacock from Argus whose hundred eyes (seen on the tail feathers of the Peacock) symbolize the vault of heaven and the “eyes” of the stars.
In Hinduism the Peacock is associated with Lakshmi who is a deity representing benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and  

good luck.
Similar to Lakshmi, the Peacock is associated with Kwan-yin in Asian spirituality. 

Kwan-yin (or Quan Yin) is also an emblem of love, compassionate watchfulness, good-will, nurturing, and kind-heartedness. 
Legend tells us she chose to remain a mortal even though she could be immortal because she wished to stay behind and aid humanity in their spiritual evolution.
In Babylonia and Persia the Peacock is seen as a guardian to royalty, and is often seen in engravings upon the thrones of royalty.
In Christianity the Peacock symbolism represents the “all-seeing” church, along with the holiness and sanctity associated with it. 

Additionally, the Peacock represents resurrection, renewal and immortality within the spiritual teachings of Christianity.
Themes of renewal are also linked to alchemical traditions to, as many schools of thought compare the resurrecting phoenix to the modern-day Peacock.
Contemplate the powers of the Peacock when you need more vibrancy and vitality in your experience. 

The Peacock can also help you on your spiritual Path, and breath new life into your walk of faith.
The Peacock can rejuvenate self-esteem levels too. 

If you’re feeling “blah” and blue, imagine the glorious, techno-color display the Peacock provides. 
This puts us in a proper mood to embrace your own nobility. In no time, you’ll be walking tall and proud as a Peacock too!"
And the spider symbolizes;
 "The Spider is an ancient symbol of mystery, power and growth.
We take our first lesson from the ancient symbol of the Spider by contemplating its web. 
Just as the Spider weaves a web, so too must we weave our own lives. 
The Spider symbol meaning here serves as a reminder that our choices construct our lives. When the Spider appears to us, it is a message to be mindful of the choices we are making - and ask ourselves:
How are my choices affecting my life?
How can my choices improve my life?
How are my choices affecting others in my life? 

Not only do Spiders and their webs draw attention to our life choices, they also give us an overview of how we can manipulate our thinking in order to construct the life we wish to live. Spiders do this by calling our awareness to the amazing construction of their webs. 
Fully functional, practical, and ingenious in design - Spider webs serve as homes, food storage, egg incubators - seemingly limitless in their functionality. 
When we consider this ingenious diversity, we can also consider the web-like construct of our own lives. 
How are we designing the most effective life? 
When we see our decisions, choices and actions as far-reaching, effective tools in life - we can see how we weave a web that can either serve us or enslave us. 
The Spider symbol meaning beckons us to be mindful of our behaviors - be smart about the life we weave for ourselves.  
We can derive more Spider symbol meaning when we consider certain subtle characteristics that represent ancient symbols of infinity. 

The infinity symbol meanings occur when we consider most Spiders have eight eyes and all have eight legs. 
The number eight is also a symbol of infinity or lemniscate 
(an eight turned on its side)
Also, the vibrational frequency indicates the  
meaning of number eight involves cycles, passage of time, and evolution."

Then today at the Synchrosecrets blog there was this story -
 "The Story of 8" where I left this comment;
"To me the number 8 represents infinity.
I always picture it laying sideways."
and got this reply from Trish;  
"You just reminded me of one of my favorite books – The Eight by Katherine Neville. 
If you haven’t red it, treat yourself!!"
I had never heard of the book before, so I headed over to Amazon to checkout the reviews.
there were 424 customer reviews at the time 
(my father’s old cab number) and 222 five star reviews, which is also a significant number in my life.
So the book is on my "To Read" list now.

Susan's next film is Cloud Atlas being made by the The Wachowskis of The Matrix fame and is about; "[It is] an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution."
My last post called,
True Love Will Find You In The End...Oh, and Take the BLUE Pill
lead me to this You Tube clip of a Spiritualized version of -
True Love Will Find You In The End (live in Reykjavík)
And what's the predominate instrument in this clip? 
 And what's the date tomorrow??? 
Interesting mix of coincidences don't you think?
