Cosmic Weaver

“Tis true without lying, certain and most true. That which is below, is like that which is above, and that which is above is like that which is below.” Isaac Newton

This adage is traditionally attributed to the Emerald Tablets of Hermes Trismegistus.

I’ve always been fascinated by the symbolism of spiders as master weavers of  destinies, and language, and the similarity of stories between different nations.  She is often called the mother of language and a great storyteller as she weaves her language upon her loom.

Spider’s web is akin to a mandala, the Sanskrit meaning of mandala is circle. The circle is a symbol of perfection, eternity, unity and completeness, and the mandala  is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. In Hindu and Buddhist traditions, the centre represents the beginning point of contemplation of and devotion to the divine.

Creating mandalas help the focusing of attention of practitioners and adepts, and as a spiritual guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space, as an aid to meditation and trance induction. In ancient Greek and Roman traditions this central point often signified the self, as it is in Jungian psychology too. It is always at the centre in which we find our calm, and heart- centred sacred space!

Spiders have the extraordinary capability of creating, weaving and spinning their own webs. This ability shows and teaches us the gift of creation. We have the power to create what happens in our lives, to us and to others, by the choices we make. Consequently, we create our own reality according to our thoughts, feelings, actions, and reactions, and we make an impact upon the world and universe through our presence.

Existentially, the connection between spider and her web and the cosmos too, is intrinsically and extrinsically linked, as we are all connected through the heartfelt strings of love, the filaments of cosmic web.  They help remind us of our inter-connectedness to all life! Spider is thus, the cosmic weaver, in a cosmic web of universal galaxies. Awesome!  🙂 ❤

Interlude

Take a break to unwind to the calm within…

My new video Interlude, uses a a fractal animation I created in 1999, when all was new in this genre. Now I find the perfect complement to it, with my relaxing meditation tune, Interlude.  Sit right back and relax. Blessings to you, Bridget 🙂

DOVE OF PEACE (c) 2004 Bridget Cameron

We are what we think and feel. Energy and information builds consciousness. Our beliefs, intentions and actions create our reality. We build our world as we go… We Increase our self-awareness by looking within, and connecting with our heart/emotions and our light!

Light = information/love

Darkness= lack of information/fear

By embracing our heart and the light within, we increase our vibration and consciousness, and take our power back. Then, we become the master of ourselves!

Take time out everyday to meditate and connect to your heart.  Don’t just accept things at face value, check to evaluate the validity of your beliefs and what you expose yourself to. If they don’t make much sense or no longer serve you, change them! You are in control of your own thoughts and reality!

If we all have amazing thoughts, feelings and actions then we will have an amazing world! Let’s aim for love and peace, and create the best reality we can together, for we are all ONE! Let’s choose LOVE!  🙂 ❤

Golden Surf

golden surf by Bridget CameronGolden surf, of liquid gold and bronze,

Quieten me to the lull of your changing songs.

White crests and rainbow liquid silk,

washes and renews by body’s milk..

Lie me down on your golden sands,

and let my body and soul rest in your gentle hands.

I’m experimenting with new techniques on illustrations that I have created. I quite like this effect of mirrored reflections and refractions, in the shape of a shamrock.  I guess it’s a lucky symbol for the Irish at heart! What do you think?

Meaning

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will do.” ~ Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.

galactic conception

I sit here in wonder at the immensity of it all!
As a mere spec in the universal mind
I have a purpose,
Ever so small my part,
However, I have a purpose,
And it is this purpose that gives my life meaning.
For without it I would shrivel up and die.
