Since moving a few months ago, I have encountered many animal spirits in their natural environment. The most exciting have been during morning walks on the beach, which include seals, dolphins, and whales. I will write about the others soon, but today I will talk about the symbolism of the animal spirit, the whale, whom I have not only seen in person, but one also appeared in a Tea Leaves & Tarot Reading.
Whales are the largest known mammals, and animals, known to us, and they live in the immensely large and mostly unknown deep ocean waters, which symbolize our emotions, intuition, the depths of our psyches, and the unconscious. Whales are ancient creatures, who seem to have a wisdom and depth of understanding of nature that is just as old.
Whales communicate with other whales and possibly other sea creatures through a variety of ways: the melodic whale song, sonar, clicks, and whistles. They are even known to try to mimic human speech in captivity! Listen to whale here.
The Whale Symbolizes:
- Deep Awareness of Emotional States & Processes within the Psyche
- Understanding of the Collective Unconscious & Cosmic Consciousness
- Emotional Connection to Community
- Deep & Clear Communication
- Psychic, Intuitive, & Telepathic Abilities & Communication
- Holders of Ancient Knowledge & Wisdom
- Ability to Smoothly Navigate the Depths of our Emotions & Psyche
