Some might find it odd that Whale would be a Native American Totem to learn from. It really isn’t all that unusual as many tribes lived on the coast lines of North America but even the tribes who lived inland know of Whale.
Whale is the record keeper and is very much like a swimming library. This creature teacher carries the history of Mother Earth and is said to have been placed here by the Ancients from the Dog Star, Sirius.
Our biologists will tell us that Whale is a mammal and it is very possible that it lived on land millions of years ago. In tribal tradition, Whale moved into the ocean when the Earth shifted and Lemuria, the Motherland went below the waters.
There are petroglyphs that speak of the Motherland, Mu, and the disaster that brought the red race to North America from the West. There are symbols in these ancient pictures that speak of the rivers and mountains that were crossed by the ancestors when they were in search of solid ground.
Whale witnessed the events that led to the settling of Turtle Island (North America) and has kept the records and knowledge of the Motherland alive. It is said that Mu will rise again when the fire comes from the sky and lands in another ocean on Mother Earth. All of Earth’s children will have to unite and honor all ways and all races in order to survive.
The medicine of Whale teaches us to use the sounds and frequencies that balance our emotional bodies and heal our physical forms. We align with Whale’s message when we remember why the drum brings healing and peace. The drum is the universal heartbeat and aligns all beings heart to heart.
If Whale is working with you right now, you are being asked to tap into the records and to allow yourself to be sung to by those who have the original language. Humans are the only creatures who do not have their own unique cry or call. Whale will help you find yours. Whale signals a time of finding your origins, of seeing your destiny as it has been coded in your DNA. When you are able to open yourself to your own uniqueness your nine personal totems will send their sounds to you or through you.
