Is There More to Mermaids? Myths, Musings and Treasures

Mermaids are particularly pervasive in popular culture at the moment. Their wild style it is easy to dive into with it's playful, imaginative, fantastical and instagramable allure. But what if there was something more to the mermaid trend? What if mermaids speak to something deeper? Something we crave?

In this mermaid diary, we'll muse on ancient mermaid lore, their place in popular culture, and how I personally interpret the symbolism of mermaids: 

Psyche diving, the dreamy depths, freedom, and their wild and often frightening implications... 

This ain't no Disney bullshit.

"What makes mermaids interesting is that they are part animal. The tail is what intrigues us and tickles the imagination. Mermaids show us an image of a creature with the higher consciousness and spirit of a human smashed up against the wild, the untamed, passionate, sometimes off putting, sometimes scary and unpredictable ANIMAL. And if you are feeling disconnected from your animal nature, mermaid energy might be something you want to utilize." 

Want more mer goodies? 

Here are a few ways you can wake up your inner Mer.

Enjoy this homemade Ocean Sanctuary Mermaid Meditation 

 Go to the water and recharge. It doesn't have to be an ocean or pristine beach! Rivers, lakes, swimming pools and even fountains have the replenishing and moving energy you are thirsty for.

 Run a bath and load it up with sea salt and soak in the surf vibes. Sprinkle in sea shells for good measure. If you don't have a tub, a foot soak works beautifully.

If rocks and crystals get you hot and bothered, I recommend selenite, adventurine, abalone shell and pearl to inspire watery magic and meditation.

Make time to tap in to your creativity right now. It's okay if you aren't a poet or painter-- make a magazine dreamboard, throw on something you've always wanted to wear, or rearrange your furniture . That's how we get in the FLOW, merbabies..

Huge Love from your Friendly Neighborhood Sea Witch,
