24x24cm original watercolor mandala

With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things. (William Wordsworth)

In many aspects of Native wisdom, the whale is symbolic of the beginning, the creation of all life on earth. They aren’t the only ones. Countless cultures around the globe associate creation, birth and rebirth with the whale.

The whale symbolizes deeper awareness, cosmic consciousness, emotional rebirth, nurturing, devotion to community, balance and emotional depth. It teaches us to hear our inner voice and helps us explore the depths of our imagination and creativity. The whale also protects us from getting lost in our inner world, so we can be aware of the present moment.

Those who are attracted to whale energy are incredibly sensitive about the feelings of those around them, and this can manifest into an internal pressure that can be quite difficult to bear. The whale can help with overwhelming feelings and understand the actions that have caused unrest in our daily life. If you are extraordinarily affected by the emotions of others, or your own emotions are so intense as to cause discomfort, your whale power animal can help you keep peaceful and balanced.
