I must be a Mermaid. I have no fear of depth and a great fear of shallow living.– Anias Nin
Once Upon A Time
there was a heroic warrior named Odysseus. After fighting in the brutal Trojan War, Odysseus set off on an unforgettable journey home.
However, every two steps towards his home, Odysseus would encounter a horrific monster, propelling him one giant leap back. Like any sensible man, he accepted any advice he could get. Especially when it came from the gods!
At one point in his journey, the goddess Circe warned Odysseus about two drop dead gorgeous monsters — the Sirens. These lovely creatures had angelic voices that would seduce any man into jumping into the sea. Crazy in lust, men would swim to the hungry Sirens just in time to be their afternoon snack. Fish and chips anyone?
Following Circe’s advice, Odysseus’s sailors filled their ears with bees wax so they would not hear the Sirens’ bewitching songs. However, Odysseus wanted to enjoy the sexy melodies and live to tell the story of it. And so, his sailors tied him firmly to the ship’s mast.
As they passed the Siren’s island, Odysseus was overcome by an intense desire to swim to the Sirens. He begged his men to release him, but the men just rowed faster and faster, until the Sirens’ songs faded into the sea.
The Mermaid teaches us to swim to the depths of the soul to access unconscious emotions. What fears, traumas and old stories stand in the way of fulfilling relationships?
Underneath all the sand and barnacles is a treasure that holds your superpower — emotional intelligence. When you dig into your true feelings, you can finally move you in the direction of your heart’s desires.
The Mermaid also shares a message about connecting with your inner child. Do you remember when you would look at the world with wonder? Collecting shells on the beach and running after bubbles in the park was simply awe-inspiring. The Mermaid calls on you to see the world with the magical lenses of a child. And don’t be afraid to indulge in your childhood fantasies.
