First Challenge While Living The Secret
I’ve only been living The Secret for a few days now, and everything has been so smooth, but today was the first time I used The Power to overcome an obstacle.
I have an A. Versicolor tarantula which is only about the size of my thumbnail. For anyone who isn’t familiar with the species, an adult is fuzzyish and has vibrant colors such as pink, orange, and purple. The spiderlings are a beautiful brilliant deep blue and they have little ball feet at the end of their legs which makes them look actually kind of cute!
When I took my critter out she was a little freaked out and was running around in frantic spurts and she was jumping off my hand. I was trying to put a cricket in her cage while holding her when the light went out and it was black. I was trying to keep her without the cricket escaping and the light went back on. This time she had jumped onto my bed, but luckily she wasn’t moving. Then the light went out.
It took me only about three seconds to jiggle the bulb and when it went back on, my little spider was nowhere in sight.
Long story short, those were the longest ten minutes of my life. I looked everywhere on the bed and near it. I took the sheets, pillowcase, and blankets off my bed so delicately so I wouldn’t squish her, but she was nowhere to be seen. My heart started thumping and I realized I was afraid she was dead. I immediately changed it, and felt as good as I could about that little spider. It made me think of the story in The Power when the author lost her dog with woods surrounding nearby. I felt the relief and happiness I would feel when I found my little Sapphire jewel. I kept saying, I’m so glad you’re safe and sound,” and felt it as best I could as if it were true.
Not too long after, I saw something on my desk climbing its way up. I can’t describe my gratitude. I have absolutely no idea how she wound up where she did but I know my feeling her safe in her cage saved me. Thank you so much!
