Message from Grandmother Spider (Neith)
I have known for a long time that I am one heck of a manifester and that anything I put my mind to and work diligently towards I can create. I fearlessly and courageously tackle whatever calls to me from my inner voice, with a “Yes, I/We Can” attitude that would even impress Obama.
The place in consciousness that I have not been fully aware of, is the place of creating from Source! Don’t misunderstand me, I always seek my higher power’s will for what ever I bring into manifestation, but I often forget to allow the flow of the universe take charge. My modus operandi, is to get the download from spirit and then take charge and make it happen, which was all good and fine when I was a younger soul, of 30, 40 and heck even 50. However as I approached my 56th birthday, I found I needed to reconsider some of my assumptions and attitudes about how things need to get done and seeker a gentler way.
Right after the Wise Wolf Women’s Council, in April of last year, I realized I had a serious spider bite, and became quite ill with a high fever, nausea, chills, and a large red welt about the size of a grapefruit in the shape of an odd shaped heart on my inner left thigh. It was encircled and outlined with a thin white line, which the Internet said often indicated a black widow spider bite. Interestingly enough I had a dream the night before I discovered the bite about a beautiful spider with bright black shiny eyes, who told me that in Ancient Egypt she was called Neith and that she was the original creator, the One Source of the universe. She explained to me that everything in creation came from within her magical body and she birthed creation with almost no effort. She opened her womb and out poured this magnificent web of creation, which she spun into a cohesive web and then promptly laid back in her web as if it were a big cosmic hammock in the sky and dreamed what ever she desired, would soon enter into her web. She showed me how she easily captured her food and thumped off any offending or undesirable materials, such as bad tasting bugs from her web with a flick of one of her legs and how the rain would form droplets that ran like a gentle river along the strands of her masterfully built web into her open and thirsty spider mouth. If the weather became too tumultuous, she simply pulled the strands back into her belly and sauntered off to a safer bush or cave and rolled out her beautiful web of plenty once again. I must say Neith was a real inspiration to me and although she was somewhat of an intimidating presence at first in my dream I was certainly drawn to her wisdom teachings and very grateful and honored that she chose me to share them with.
So you can imagine my surprise to find that I had most likely been bitten the very night she had entered into my dream. Neith’s message hit or should I say bit me hard and I have been paying attention to her wisdom ever since her visit. Since that time, I have had an awakening that shows me, that while I am a powerful manifester , I have been using way too much of my life force energy in birthing my creations. This is an old pattern for me; one I come by naturally from family or origin and cultural impressions and one that I am more than ready to be release into a higher octave.
So, I have turned my awareness and willingness to see the pattern more clearly than ever before and do what is necessary to let it go.
Within a very short period of time, I could feel the shift within my own being and my outer surroundings made the shift too.
Many new creations are in the pipeline here at Isis Cove/Dove Mountain and Venus Rising ready to be born. Next month as we are a little further along I will be making several announcements about several very exciting developments already in the works. Until then, watch for Neith’s magical teachings in the dreamtime and know that we all have access to this divine source of creation, it is as she said, “all inside of each one of us”!
With Love, Gratitude and Magic,

Star Wolf's Welcome
My journey in life has been a spiral path of wholeness that continues to move through cycles of change taking me through many symbolic death and rebirth experiences, which I refer to as “shamanic portals of transformation.” I have learned more than I ever thought possible through a process I will share with you in my future writings, called the Shamanic Breathwork™ process, and the five initiations process called S.H.I.P. Once I have made sense of the lessons on my path and discovered the bigger picture, I am ready to pass on and share both my stumblings and my leaps along the way. In my own spiritual quest, I have always appreciated most those who shared their struggles and victories in an authentic way. That will be my humble attempt within the context of this blog.
I believe that we are all indigenous to this earth. I respect all my relations, whether they be human, animal, plant, mineral, visible or invisible ones. We are all related by the great web of life and sent here from the great beyond. Everything we say and do touches all parts of this magnificent web of creation. If I treat myself or anyone else unfairly, we are all affected in some way. Fortunately, the converse is true, as well. I am not perfect. If I am honest and have humility, I can admit that I will make mistakes as I seek to further evolve my conscious awareness. I can also make living amends by striving to change my negative thoughts and behaviors, and live from a more open-hearted connection to others and to myself. I have learned over time that all the changes I seek in the outer world must begin by looking within myself first. I have also learned that it is imperative that I have the courage to be honest with myself and to look at the “shadow” side of my personality. When I have had the courage to truly know myself better, the light and the dark, I have found the inner strength to change my life and shape-shift myself into the light of my true soul’s image.
From time to time I will share different programs and events that are being offered through my non profit organization (Venus Rising Institute for Shamanic Healing Arts) in my blog, as well as photos, videos and teachings, etc. But the main purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet to share the inner musings of my shamanic spirit and journey, and to hear yours as well. I look forward to connecting with all of you who intuitively know that you, too, are a valuable part of the shamanic process of conscious co-creation and evolution on the planet at this time. We each have a role to play and a soul purpose in the drama unfolding in our world today. Together we can create a better place for all beings on earth to live and leave a powerful legacy for those who are yet to come.
I believe we will all be remembered by future generations for the choices we make during this time of huge evolutionary change. In the words of the wonderful poem, “Summer Day,” by Mary Oliver, “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
In Love, In Service, In Gratitude,
