Be You

“Like the whales, each of us has a unique song or gift to offer the world and is meant to be heard by others.”



Native Americans teach us that the Great Spirit speaks to us through animals.

Whales have existed for over 50 million years and are considered to be record-keepers who possess knowledge of the past.

It is through the vibrations of their unique sound that they release this ancient wisdom to us. At the same time, their sound carries across such great distances that whales can enter the realm of the future where they can acquire knowledge of what is to come. Every whale sings a song, and they never repeat the same pattern when they sing their song. Since whales must be conscious at all times in order to breathe, they cannot afford to fall into an unconscious state for too long. Never completely asleep, their brain has constant access to the collective unconscious where all answers lie. Whales float peacefully, secure in the ocean environment that supports and sustains them.

You can learn from the wisdom of whales by remembering to express what’s uniquely yours. Each of us has a unique “song” or gift to offer the world. Your song is meant to be sung by you and heard by others. No one else can sing this song but you, and your song is medicine for the healing of the planet. Like whales, you can choose to access information about the future when you go into a meditative state. Whales teach us to look at where we came from and where we are headed. Knowing that our past helps shape our future, we can remember to make positive choices regarding our lives, the environment, and our world. Like whales, we can remember to stay awake and actively engaged in a universe that supports and sustains us. When we express ourselves and share our unique gifts, we add our wisdom and vibration to the planet.

  5. Karen, as a shamanic practitioner myself, I do think/see/perceive us as healing with the help of animals. I just noticed that your whole blog is “in motion.” I love that you have so many animated pictures on your blog screen – reaching to me, and reaching back to you: Have a Happy Holiday season; I am so grateful to have met you, and to know you here _/1\_

    1. Thank you Ka! I feel the same about meeting you. And you are right, if we are not in motion towards learning, living and letting go, we become stagnate and stuck in our old story. Have a beautiful holiday season too and I look forward to connecting in 2020 πŸ’β­οΈ

  6. Yet our society, education system often steals this uniqueness from us. Often our uniqueness with which we are born, gets buried under a list of do’s and don’ts. This is why I find it refreshing when I see it in children. Once I heard from one primary school teacher that in her class she asked the students to write an essay on cow. One kid started the composition with the sentence β€œentire body of a cow is covered with very small hairs”. Look how different his priorities are and how unique his thought process is. Every time I think of this story, I wish that the child retains some essence of this uniqueness as he grows up.
