Weaving the Web of Life; It Takes all of the Strands

A Spider Web as a Metaphor of Life

A Spider Web as a Metaphor of Life

Nancy Smeltzer, MFA

Besides all of the spiritual postings and web sites that I follow, I also read a number of marketing blogs. This one by Pamela Bruner, had a great idea regarding how it takes a lot of different approaches to achieve successful marketing for your business.  I found this concept a marvelous metaphor on how to live your life, too. You often hear the phrase admonishing you to not put all of your eggs in the same basket, lest the one basket fall and all of your hope be dashed. I feel the same is true with spirituality and healing, as there are so many ways to reach a goal. I don’t feel that any one spiritual path has the “One True Way”, and that concepts and ideas from other paths all have validity. In my opinion, I feel that a lot of the world’s problems could be solved by remembering that we all have a piece of the puzzle of life’s truths.

When I Googled “web of life” I found that most of the first entries had to do with biological niches and ways to teach children about nature. Yet I feel that there’s a web of life with regard to all of our interactions with ourselves internally, and with others externally. There’s a strand for spirituality, and there’s a strand for friendships. There are others for work, play, love, and for me, the need for peace and time to think. All of these need to be in some sort of balance, for if there are too many strands of one type, then the web gets top heavy on one side. Pieces of the web can then break away from its foundation, leaving parts of your life to fall away.

This posting is the 100th that I’ve done for this blog, and the subject is just perfect for where I am in my life. I’m trying to overcome muscle atrophy so that I can walk again without a cane. I’m getting my house ready to sell, and cleaning out 30 years of stuff. (There was always something better to do than rearrange things on shelves or donate them.) I’m also working on building my healing business which means getting out there and putting myself in front of people. Lots of other things have been put on the back burner, like having a social life. So, this posting was really for me, too, to remind myself that balance in life is a good thing.

 How do you balance your life and find time for the different aspects that are important to you?

About Nancy Smeltzer

I'm passionate about long distance spiritual and alternative healing, having had a successful practice now for over ten years. My clients work with me over the phone and on Skype from all over the USA and Canada, as well as Switzerland, Russia, and Australia. I specialize in helping people heal their negative repeating patterns of behavior and remove the stuck energy in their unconscious minds. By doing that, they can quit going round and round in circles,. repeating the same mistakes, and move forward to having the life of their dreams. Besides my holistic healing practice, I've also been professionally creating art quilts and other fiber arts for over 30 years. My specialty is contemporary beaded art quilts. On my web site, I bill myself as the "Self Proclaimed Button and Bead Queen of Maryland (USA)." My recent works have images that are based on what I see when I tap into a person's energy field and are called Meditation Gardens. These visionary art pieces are the perfect place for that person to play and meditate. In my spare time, I'm a rabid, avid "dirty nails" gardener, composing scenes with plants. Sometimes, I come inside so dirty that my clothes have to go straight into the washing machine; they're too dirty for the dirty clothes hamper! -The Official Google + site for Nancy Smeltzer
