Hi Sharon,

For me, dreaming of spiders usually mean some sort of emotional conflict or heated conflict/discussion that I will be facing or currently in the midst of, usually with someone close to me. The spider goes after your dog, your child and then you sounds like something annoying, irritating and threatening to you, perhaps a conversation/value or situation that is very important to you and there may be opposing thoughts about it from others, whom you value the opinion of, perhaps. I often get dreams of me screaming to be heard and being very emotional when trying to get someone to listen to me - the people I usually see are family members or others whose opinions I greatly valued - but they never seem to listen to me. In fact, they are just motionless and look through me or ignore me. In waking life, I am least heard and understood by family so this makes sense to me. The fact that you were trying to instruct people to take you to hospital and they weren't listening could mean that something very important or passionate to you that you are trying to convey or express but you may feel unheard or misunderstood. Maybe those people don't see your point of view or see it's importance as you do. Sometimes, I've also noticed that, depending on who's in my dream and what I am screaming or trying hard to convey to another, it sometimes mean for me that I'm not listening to myself or taking myself as seriously as I should. A lack of confidence. I'm trying to convince someone else in my dream about my feelings or what I need but what I need to really do, in my waking hours, is to convince myself to trust and believe in myself on a matter.

When you say you can manipulate your dreams, are you referring to lucid dreaming? In this dream, were you trying to manipulate any of it, or had you tried but was unable to?

Please, don't be disturbed by this dream. I understand, it feels icky or odd but know that dreams are wonderful guides. There is something you need to know and you are getting a 'head's up" on a situation. We just need understanding on our dreams. They help us so much in life.

Hope this helps some.
Mela  :)

Sharon - I am simply adding to the advice Mela gave.

I found that hitting any thing in our dreams is actually hitting aspects of oneself. The reason is that dreams occur in a very different dimension that waking life. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/dimensions-of-human-experience/

So, no wonder the creature bit you and left lumps. So, dream images are ways of communicating via our associations not actual things or people. In the world of dreams our most intimate fears and longings are given an exterior life of their own in the form of the people, objects, creatures and places of our dream. Meet them by using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

Any spider would represent an aspect of your own emotional nature – an aspect from which you can obtain the ability, motivation or inclination to deceive yourself (because the spider spins the ‘web of illusion’).

The spider on the dog would imply that a feeling of deceiving yourself  pertains to the issue of friendship and loyalty. Hitting the spider away is like brushing it off, i.e. being able to disregard the possibility of any self deception. The spider on your daughter can suggest a feeling of self deception may pertain to your actual daughter, or to a very favoured feeling you have, or about yourself in the future. Again this feeling is and can be brushed off.

The spider biting you indicates that a feeling of deceiving or fooling yourself is not working in your favour. Here the deception or illusions relate to an "up in arms" situation - something that makes you very angry. (on the arm) While you do manage to brush it off, it has had an effect upon you. (you are left with big lumps) The lumps can be indicating that the effect of feeling you could be deceiving yourself has "gotten under your skin" - it has become a real source of aggravation. The lumps on the arm also suggest that where you could be up in arms, your own self defensive system (the skin) is not quite "on the level", i.e. your self defensiveness is not honest or legitimate.

What is moving suggests a 'living idea'. Thus the moving lumps can be suggesting that you could see your own  self  defensiveness not being legitimate, as a livable idea. The True Self would seek help at a hospital, i.e. in a situation offering help from a higher source (God). But there is no aspect of yourself (the people) that hears this,

Note that hitting the spider off 3 times indicates that brushing off a feeling that you might be deceiving yourself is a good and godly idea. Also a spider, or any animal, biting you is an insult to your rational thinking.
[PS. I would think twice about manipulating your dreams because they are designed by God to bring you guidance and correction of your thinking. Manipulating dreams simply postpones receiving the information needed now. Use dreams to help you spiritually rather than to serve your ego. Note also that the impression of control in lucid dreaming is but an illusion as you are still asleep and dreaming, living in your own dream world of imagination and fantasy.
