Unfortunately, all sharks get painted with the same brush. Many sharks such as lemon sharks and nurse sharks swim with humans, not always on purpose, and do not take off a limb in the process. Whale sharks are filter feeders and despite their tremendous size only eat plankton. We’ve heard people described as sharks, and depending on the context it could be good or bad.
Has a shark swam into your dreams? Sharks are known more for operating on instincts as opposed to overthinking. Many a shark has been opened to reveal everything from clothing, bottles and cans, toys, parts of surfboard, trash, and even a cooler. These things just didn’t find their way into the ocean on their own, either. A shark tests out the edibility by biting something. Sharks’ eyesight is poor, which may explain some of the garbage in their bellies. A surfer paddling on a surfboard can be mistaken for their favorite meal, seal. Intuition plays a big part in how the shark survives. People unfortunately ignore their intuitive side or what some called hunches. The shark reminds to pay attention to our intuition.
A shark is a natural survivor. One reason is because it is always moving forward. There is a common belief that sharks die if they stop swimming. This comes from a more primitive ancestor who had to push water through its gills by swimming to do so. Most sharks do swim even while asleep. A shark person is on the move.
When a shark appears in your life via television, dreams, books, mention or even a live appearance, it could have shown up as a protector. Is there someone or a situation bedeviling you? Take hold of the fierce shark energy and confront your issues.
Sharks are known to smell blood in the water from miles away. Use the shark’s acute sense of smell to decide if something or someone is off. Once you’ve called on the shark for help, you will intuitively know.
Because of the shark’s association with water, it also touches on our emotional side. The shark literally goes with the flow. This is a reminder that every low tide is eventually followed by an high one. Don’t get too excited about the little stuff even when you don’t think it is the little stuff.
In the end, the shark really is the ocean tough guy. It isn’t popular like dolphins, but many cultures wear shark teeth to denote courage and fierceness.
The message the shark brings is to go after whatever you want.
