 Some nights I'll wake up, or maybe really early in the morning and see things that are not there. Most of the times I see spiders like on my bedroom wall or on my pillow. One night I fell asleep on the couch watching TV. My eyes jolted open and I was awake. I looked over on the coffee table to find the remote to shut the TV off. When I did, I seen a bunch of spiders crawling all over it and the remote. When I jumped over the couch to try and get away, I looked back and they were gone. Anyone know what this is? This keeps happening. They are there and then they are gone.

Hi, and thanks for sharing your concern. Are you suffering from anything stress related at the mo? Stress can play hell with our senses which in turn can result in seeing/hearing things. If it doesnt go away i suggest visiting your doctor - they will be able to lead you in the right direction.

 Actually my life is very stressful at the moment, but I've been seeing these things since I was little. My sister had the same problem but she died a year ago in a car accident. Its been happening an awful lot lately. Just wandering if anyone else has experienced anything like this.

Tiff88 check out the "sound waves ?"  forum, some of your answers may be there.

I concur with Michael.  I've said it a billion times on this site.  Our brain is an amazingly powerful computer.  It also glitches all the time.  So when it does go haywire, it does it in a very bizarre way.If this is a chronic situation...who knows?  My abnormal psych professor would immediatly say it was a symptom of schizophrenia (which doesn't mean you are crazy, btw).But, I think I want more data.  What time does it usually happen?  Are there things that make it happen more?  What kinds of emotions do you experience?  Anything other than spiders?  How many times a week/month/year?  How old are you?  Gender?  Family history of psychological problems?  Are you having regular checkups with a doctor? Another theory I could throw out there is demonic influence.  I got a chill when you said your sister died in a car accident.  If she saw spiders (or something) crawling around in her car...yeah...I'd definatly swerve all over the road before jumping out.  It does sound kinda demonic.  Forcing someone to experience something so disagreeable.

Either you're inherently afraid of spiders, and waking up groggy with eye floaters is "matrixing" that spiders all over the place effect..... OR it could be a spirit familiar... Plus, do you live within or next to a bunch of powerlines and a radio tower?

 Well, I am going to be turning 23 and I am female. I see these spiders sometimes when I'm waking up or just any random part of the day. Usually waking up in the middle of the night though. As far as I know, my family don't have any psychological problems. I rarely ever see a doctor because right now I have no insurance or the money. I'm at a rough spot in my life. I don't know if my sister was seeing spiders right before she died. But the fact that we were twins makes it a little more weird don't it? Anyway, I haven't noticed that I was seeing anything other that spiders. I don't fear them but if there is more than one spider and they are about as big as my hand, I'm gonna try to get away. After moving away and then looking back they are gone. They seem so real because they move like a spider would.One night, a couple years ago I was laying in bed beside her and I seen one run across her pillow and underneath her neck. I made her get up and we check the bed and there was nothing there. This has been happening since we were at least 13.

 I do live next to a powerline.

If you know anyone with an EMF meter you should maybe have them check readings inside your place. Electromagnetic energy at higher levels can effect the brain causing  halucinations. The powerline thing does not sound that good, at some higher levels EMFs can be considered actually health wise dangerous if they are above acceptable levels. Cronic  exposure to extremly high levels ... that is real bad.Now normaly power is safe I don't want to freak anyone out and turn them Amish . I have been working in Industrial Electronics for years and have been subjected to allot of EMF fields and have even rode the lightning a few times during some mishaps and  I am still here. (Well maybe not all here but that is not power related)

Okay Tiff, so no history of psych disorders, about a decade's worth of 'spiders' in at least two different homes, and you're dealin' normally..... C'mon, you're givin us M&Ms when we need a whole chocolate cake. Let me help your report out: It seems like your twin sister did not see one of these "spiders". That, and in ten years you've never attempted to outright contact, physically squash, scientifically record, communicate with, or spiritually cast out one or all of these thingies.What is missing here?

Actually, every time I'd find something to try and kill them with they would disappear. I'm not good with explaining things. She has seen them because we talked about it. That night when I seen that one on the pillow her eyes were closed. She was sleeping. I'm sorry I'm not good with explaining things. I have told my parents and some close friends about it but no one else seemed to get what I was saying. They never experienced this before. I'm not much into the paranormal but a friend of mine told me maybe I should check into some websites and see if anyone else has reported this problem. Who knows, maybe I'm just crazy.

No, you are definitely not crazy, Tiff. I just needed you to fill in some blanks, and I appreciate your efforts to help us understand your situation better. A lot of the suggestions we make have to be more like educated guesses since this is just a Forum. We'll get closer to figuring this out, Tiff. Hang tough.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your twin. I would imagine that you feel as though you have lost a huge part of yourself.I agree that you need to have the EMF checked in your current location. If you have a brain glitch that is causing your hallucinations that could certainly make it worse. Please don't be offended about the word "hallucinations". I am only using it as term for seeing something that is not "there".I grew up deathly afraid of spiders, real ones, and if I was in a place where spiders were, (which is just about everywhere) they would find me. Even the people around me noticed after a while that I am a spider magnet. As an adult I became very curious about the spider thing and started doing some research into the metaphysical properties of spiders and their image. I learned that they are about two things most often. One: creativity. The spider weaves, creates something from nothing. Two: rebirth, or having connections to both worlds, the seen and unseen. I am an artist and also psychic. Those two aspects of my nature often conflicted with living in an adult world of jobs, deadlines and responsibilities. When I learned to embrace those gifts of mine, the spiders usually leave me alone; unless I begin to slip into the mundane world again and leave my skills behing. Eventually, as a memorial to overcoming my fear of the wondrous little beasties I had a large spider tattoo done on my shoulder, just out of my sight line, so I have to really turn my head to see her. I embrace Grandmother Spider as one of my totems.I don't know where you live, but there are plenty of places to receive low cost or free medical care, (if you are poor) here in the US, you just have to know where to look. And you do have to look. You need to address your health, both physical and mental and have the EMF checked. If all of that checks out OK, then try to learn as much about spiders as you can. Both scientific and metaphysical. Learn not to fear them, they are mostly all harmless. At least in the US, only a couple that can hurt you. But believe me, I know all too well that to understand something intellectually does not quickly make it any less frightening.BTW, do not dwell on the demonic as some would have you do. There is more than enough evil inherent to the human species that the idea of demons is almost laughable. I am not saying that negative entities don't exist, just that you need to consider ALL other explanations before you land on that one.

 Hear hear jaguar well said.......can i just ask tiff when you think of spider what does it conjur in your mind  ? you mentioned that you are stressed....Stress in my mind udually comes from feeling powerless to a situation or events......Perhaps but this is just a thought but the qualities inherrent in spiders are usually of the feminine sort and of strength dexterity and guile.....maybe just maybe instead of letting life get the better of you perhaps it maybe a sign for you to adopt a more authoritive stand in life, once you start to take back your power in life then maybe the stress will lessen and so with it the spiders....final note do not for one minute consider yourself crazy as the sheer fact you are questioning the validty puts you above crazy in my book anyway....have you had any other wierd stuff happening or is it just spiders...?

I'm stressed because I do feel powerless and I'm trying so hard to make my life better. It just seems that no matter what I do more than one thing goes wrong at the same time. Th only things I see are the spiders. My Aunt, told me when I was younger I used to go off and play by myself instead of joining in with other kids. I used to sit alone and talk to people that she couldnt see. She brushed it off because it was common for kids to have their imaginary friends. Spiders are the only things that I remember seeing and like I said its been happening since I was 13. Its the only thing I have been seeing and its been happening more than ever lately. It happened again just a couple hours ago. I picked up a fly swatter and tried to crush it. When I looked nothing was there.

Aah penny dropped i think  " it just seems no matter what i do more than one thing goes  wrong at same time "well i think you answered your conundrum....spiders spin their webs thinly and open....perhaps you are spreading yourself too thinly...when you emerse yourself in more than one project isit impossible to give 100%...so energy dissipates...try closing yourself in...concentrate on one thing at a time.....and remember one golden rule....if anything you do and you have any niggling doubts......there is a famous moni saying "when in doubt do nought" and remember take back your power....hope it helps

hi, I am an apostolic pastor and I have had many visions.............spiders among them. if I watch them till they fade away it almost seems as if they dissolve like jello into the background...........I have noticed that after seeing spiders it seems I am attacked somehow spiritually or just in everyday life though contacts or freinds and  family etc...................I feel it is a warning to watch out cause somthing  not good is headed my way............I pray and prepare myself as i've learned to take heed.............how many spiders, how big they are or how close they get to me is a definate warning of how strong the attack or whatever bad is comming my way........even the colors of the spider could mean somthing............I dont know if this will help you but I felt to tell you of my experienceFor your considerationpastor Russo
