Sharks rule the ocean. They use their primal instincts and intuitive connection with their natural environment to autonomously survive and remain at the top of the food chain.
It is well known that sharks have a strong sense of smell and can detect blood in the water, even from a long distance away. This ability allows them to find an easy meal in the form of an injured creature without the need for exerting energy hunting and chasing prey. Using their natural instincts and abilities this way, sharks can prioritise ease and flow in their lives and always choose the fastest and most direct route to reaching what it is they desire.
Urging you to trust yourself, “go with your gut” and boldly take action based on your true instincts and highest inner wisdom, the shark is a symbol of survival, clear perception and trusting your internal guidance. They teach us that because we can’t see something, doesn’t mean it isn’t there or isn’t unattainable.
We are born with tools and dominant senses that help us to get where we need to in our lives as individuals, so they teach us to really hone in on the senses we are given that ask for an element of trust or surrender. The shark asks - how do we feel? What is our body telling us? When we close our eyes and choose stillness in the dark, where do we feel guided to go? And how will we choose to go there with conviction?
They teach us that surrendering to the unknown path ahead allows us to rely on our innate gifts. Trust into your body and spirit on where your easiest and best pathway will be to get what it is you seek.
If Shark has entered your field recently, the key questions to ask yourself what it means specific to you are:
1. What was I doing / thinking / feeling at the time of the encounter?
2. How did seeing this messenger make me feel?
3. What was the animal doing and what was significant about it specifically?
4. Can you see how any of these things relate to the meaning above?
What is your own mythic tale you can weave to get your own beautiful message from this guide?
Journal and contemplate with these prompts to uncover your own personalised meaning and symbolism.
