Orca Symbolism and Medicine on Cape Cod


The Orca Sightings Off Cape Cod

On May 7, 2019, social media lit up with news of a sighting of an orca trolling off the coast of Cape Cod and Plymouth Bay in Massachusetts.

My eyes lit up for many reasons. First, orcas are not native to this region at all and secondly, they were one of the first animal totems and spirit guides I received over 25yrs ago.

I wrote a social media post about it, and then got “busy”. So, I neglected this message. I never sat in silence with the orca energy to see what I needed to see or a message we needed to hear collectively. This is teaching me to not neglect this part of my journey and to step up my game.

Then on Sunday, June 9, 2019, an orca was spotted off Chatham on Cape Cod. This is the 2nd sighting in weeks. Here is the video clip.

Again, my eyes lit up, and I thought “WOW some serious medicine being dished out here”. That same day, we hosted a very powerful women’s retreat. Also, on this day, the earth experienced a geomagnetic storm due to some space weather from the sun emitting winds from the coronal holes of the sun. I talk more about these effects HERE.

I am sitting here pondering “why NOW. Why is orca showing up here now?”

Just like the bizarre occurrences of snowy owls in 2013 that were spotted as far south as Texas, these are signs we can not ignore. This is a collective message for us, humans, to heed.

In the past, there has been a rare spotting of a lone killer whale named Thom between Maine and Chatham apparently over the years. So yes, they can come to MA.

Orcas, although the largest part of the dolphin family, were called “Killer Whale” due to misunderstandings, but now has earned great respect symbolically.

Orca Medicine

There is lots of orca medicine to pay attention to and I will share with you my own insights. The increase sightings of orcas off Cape Cod are subtle messages from Nature and the Universe.

As far as the actual medicine, I will need to sit with this for a while to see what message and medicine we need as sometimes they come through as patterns especially since this is not a one-time occurrence. 

BUT, my first read is since this orca is solitary, it may have to do with diving deep into the depths of our inner world fearlessly. All the knowledge we seek for ourselves is within our soul, and our own inner guidance system. Spiritually bypassing this is not going to help us here. The fact that orca has been spotted more than once in this region recently, it is a message we need to heed. Going inward and digging deep right now is the only way to break through the resistance and barriers preventing us from moving forward.

This is in alignment with my what I wrote in my May e-newsletter last month.

I have always been fascinated with orcas with their grace, beauty, family connections, strength, and mastery, but it was not until later in life I understood how they truly are a mighty guardian of the cosmos including our soulful journey in this life.

“Orca whales are a female-centric society – matrilineal. This means the whole clan (family – or group – also known as a “pod”) acquiesces to the leadership of the head female of the group. In fact, when a mother Orca passes away, the males will take the lead of the sister, grandmother, or the next female in the lineage. This is big symbolic juju. It implies a parallel to the divine feminine, or yin energy.” (What’s Your Sign)

Orcas are very protective of their pods and babies very much like I view elephants or wolves. They are also very loyal and mate for life like I have watched swans and mourning doves do near my home and office.

They are masters of the oceans deep, travelling thousands of miles in their journey and can survive even the harshest climates. Like the depths of the shadows within (many of you have been hearing me talk about) the deep ocean is connected to the emotional parts of our being deep within.

These ocean depths hold many truths. In order to access their wisdom, we must turn inward and trust our gut instincts. The orca medicine can teach us to delve deep within our very being. Going deep within into our shadows is not easy. With the help of orca medicine, we must trust that we will be shown the way through any obstacle or fear.

Orca Symbolism

In the past, I saw killer whales associated with family, community and protection similar to wolves which was my other spirit guide at the time and still do. Considering the wolf and orca are often compared as similar in many ways symbolically, I was grateful to my earlier life experiences with both as my guides.

Today, I also see orcas connected with spirituality, connection, healing, strength, perseverance, and teachers of magic in addition to what I mentioned.

Since, orcas are a sea mammal that can only survive in the ocean, water becomes a powerful element. Water is symbolically connected to the orca medicine in areas such as emotions, dreams, intuition, flow, healing, purification, or cleansing.

Symbolism:

  • seeing the unseen,

  • communication
  • perseverance
  • strength
  • loyal
  • magic
  • cosmic journeys
  • cosmos
  • empowerment
  • step out of fear

Native American Orca Connection

Orcas are an “important medicine animal to the Native American tribes of the Northwest Coast. Killer whales are considered a particular symbol of power and strength, and catching sight of one is considered a momentous omen.  Some tribes, such as the Tlingit, view the killer whale as a special protector of humankind and never hunted killer whales (although they were accomplished whale hunters of other species.) The Kwakiutl tribes believed that the souls of marine hunters turned into killer whales upon their death, just as the souls of forest hunters turned into wolves. For this reason, there were a number of special rituals regarding the killing of a killer whale, so that its spirit could be reborn as a human once again.” (Native Languages of the Americas)

In Summary

Symbolically, I love the Orca.

Orcas are a very powerful contender literally and metaphorically. There is a reason why orcas have chosen to NOT prey on humans. There are even stories of orcas saving humans and stranded boaters bringing them to shore.

It will be surely interesting to see how these majestic animals reveal to us in the coming days, weeks, months here in New England.

Take a ways

skeeze / Pixabay
  1. Maternal orca hierarchy in alignment with what many mystics have been saying in regards to the rise of the divine feminine.
  2. Orcas have always been a powerful ally to humans and a strong balance in nature.
  3. Step out of the fears you have been holding onto so tightly so that you can embrace your life’s purpose.
  4. Symbols of perseverance and strength.
  5. Go deep within for the answers you seek. This is a spiritual/soulful journey.

Finally, if ever you needed a sign to jump on the spiritual train and your spiritual path, this is it. We are being supported by the divine. It is time to step forward into our truth… into our path … fearlessly.

I invite you to step into the realm and the spiritual medicine of orca, and see where this journey this takes you.

March News: In Like A Lion, Self Love A Journey, Dragons in the Sun, Mercury Retrograde


Hmmmmm do we have the luck of the Irish this month?  Got spring fever yet? As I am typing this, the sun is shining, and the outdoor temperature is in the low 40’s as we prepare for a massive storm stretching most of the US kicking off the month of March.  I always see storms as something significant in the spiritual path and something to view within all of us to help our souls growth.

There is soooooo much shifting, healing, revealing, and shaking up going on, and I do not anticipate that momentum slowing down any time soon.

Forget the Lamb. Hello Lion.

Right? Are you feeling this already? Holy cow. Or should I say holy lioness? Or is it the DRAGON masked as the lion?

This month, I edge closer to the 50 mark on the solar calendar and this is the time of year I check in deep with myself and where I am going, where do I find joy and what still need to be accomplished.

Over the next couple months, I will be doing LOTS of traveling for personal and professional development to attend a magical wedding, co-facilitate a men’s healing group in VT, and attend the Trauma Training Conference with Vander Kolk. Just to give a glimpse.

This month I feel will definitely push boundaries and push us out of our comfort zones forcing us to dig deeper before the thaw and emergence of the new plantings of spring.

Self-Love: A Journey

1 of 10 hearts stumbled upon a walk mid Feb 2019

Last week I wrote about an experience I had at the park with hearts on the 10 year anniversary of the divine sending me signs and learning to build a partnership with the divine to help guide me on my path.

You can read the post here, Self Love – A Journey With The Divine in Nature. I write these posts from the heart to share these journeys with you. As always, I would cherish your comments and feedback on the post and know if what I write resonates with you and helps guide you on YOUR path.

Dragon and the Sun

Screen shot of video of sun activity 2/27/19

Many of you have been hearing me talk about dragon energy increasingly over the last few years and may have even attended an event I facilitated where we tapped into dragon energy. Well check this out… this is filed under #cantmakethisshitup.

I was watching a scientific video on the updates of solar activity and how it affects the sun dated 2/27, and while watching it, I saw a dragon in the coronal hole of the sun (or what I like to call the shadow side of the sun). Do you see it? Here is the screenshot I took.

I believe this is the same solar storm that spewed out a dragon northern light show that was circulating all over social media on the 28th.

So now we are in March … how lion … I feel like our the wounded unhealed part of our egos might get quite the challenge this month and it is important to remember to come from a place of soul and view what surfaces emotionally for you as a road map of what needs to be released, healed, or reevaluated.

Mercury Retrograde

With mercury going retrograde on March 6th, it will be a good time to re-evaluate, relax, rethink, redo, plan, prepare projects or situations. Now I am a Pisces, so what I know is that it is important to PAUSE and seek the lessons or pearl of wisdom that is being presented to you. You might find this challenging because we are a culture and a society that let’s our emotions control us vs guide us.  Yes there is a difference.

So What Does This All Mean? 

This month we continue the themes of :

  • past/present/future colliding and finding balance
  • understanding love, unconditional love, and self love on a deeper cosmic level.
  • like the dragon, muster up the courage to take a leap of faith in the direction that has been beckoning your soul.
  • Time to face our inner demons, heal old wounds, and purge old belief systems so new and more soulful beliefs can be birthed.
  • Dig deep and get real with yourself and continue to go into the shadows of self and confront your fears. This is where the buried treasure resides.
  • connect to the divine within on a deeper level

I am available for consultations, private sessions, spiritual guidance, and more. I am here to help you

In the meantime, don’t forget to pause, breathe and take a moment for yourself.

With love and appreciation,

Laura

Understanding the Current Cosmic Shifts

I am wondering how many of you are glad to see July go. What a month we had. The Universe and our souls pushed our buttons to get us out of our comfort zones, challenged relationships, and forced us to face the things needing change so we may continue to evolve from the caterpillar to the emerging butterfly. Were you open to change or resistant?

The themes of love and fear have come to the surface for review. If we have been heeding the messages all year, we will recognize that July was very much about change. Please check out my January post 6 Tips Towards Soul-Fillment in 2016 and my April post on What You Need To Know About The Current Energies and Tips To Guide You.

If we are in a state of fear, how can we love? AND vice versa, if we are in a state of love, how can we fear? Learning the art of detachment from people, places, and things have also surfaced to allow for more soul growth.

We can not control the size, shape, and velocity of the waves that come ashore. So why do we try to control the waves of life? It is time we learned to ride the waves and have fun learning to surf. Wow, I what a shift right there.  Wouldn’t you agree?

This is the lesson we are all faced with right now. Master riding the waves of change and you will see the world from a whole new perspective.  Then watch everything else around you change like magic. Try it. What do you have to lose? What do you have to gain?

Just some food for thought ….

With light, love, and appreciation,

Laura

6 Tips To Guide You Towards Soul-fillment in 2016

What a year 2015 has been. No matter where you are in your spiritual quest, I think there is one thing we all shared … GROWTH.

I wrote about my reflections called “Reflections as We Close Out 2015 – 5 Lessons 2015 Taught Me”.   If you are unsure of your path or where you are going, then I suggest you read that post. Hopefully, it can help open you to a whole new perspective.

So many of us are resisting the path of soul. One way I chose to connect was through nature. Nature is such a beautiful aid in our path if we just slow down from the fast pace and demands of society and learn to reconnect again. I received many messages and signs from the divine here

  • In the form of heart rocks,
  • Animal interactions such as the turkey, hawk, coyote, rats, blue jay and crow,
  • Some funky clouds in the shapes of hearts, angels, or other distinctive shapes,
  • Rainbows or the like.

Probably one of the greatest “A-ha” type messages came to me from the turkey over this past year which I also talked about in previous posts.  Turkeys have served as a great reminder of where I’m going and to let go of fear. Even though I KNOW to trust in the divine, my soul, and my spirit team, my ego still likes to throw out temptations to fear and all that I am letting go. That is the will of ego. That is also what makes us human while giving us the lessons our souls came here to learn in this lifetime.

The juvenile that captured
Laura’s attention. for 45 min

Recently, they gave me a blessing knowing it’s safe to trust and tools to know difference. Around Thanksgiving, I watched one of the juvenile turkeys go round and round and round a mirror outside my home for over 45 minutes.  I chuckled at the behavior as the other four were eating the fallen bird seed from the feeder wondering what the message he was trying to make and then I heard it from Spirit.

#messagefromspirit: “Face your shadow self so your true self may emerge.

I am now further along in my spiritual path developing a strong partnership with soul and my spirit team.  To sum up last year, I learned many things which all lead to my overall spiritual growth.

Right now, Mother Earth is filled with chaos in the world at this time from terrorism, to senseless acts of violence, the radiation leakage from Fukushima, to the dying sea life, extreme weather patterns, greed, addictions, wars, etc. Some are calling it the beginning of Armageddon or World War III or the final prophecy of Nostradamus.

I attribute the global chaos to a loss of connection to soul … the divine self … source energy mixed with a segment of the population eagerly seeking a divine connection to source energy and soul. When we awaken from the realities of what society has dictated to us in a false sense of reality to one that aligns with our soul in our true reality, things get shaken up, and our vibrational alignments change.

That is what I see happened increasingly over the past few years, but especially in 2015.  Many have been challenged especially in the areas of learning to let go and trust that your soul has your back. Because if you let go and trust, then that means you lose control. Right?  Actually, the opposite is true. When you let go, you are in full control of your own personal realities and you shift seeing the world from a whole new perspective. Your very vibration changes and aligns with soul and source energy.


The human race can let you down. Governments can let you down. However, your soul and your spirit team will always be by your side.  I also learned throughout the years that your head and heart will steer you wrong because of ego. However, your gut … your seat of your soul … will never steer you wrong.

Over the years, I learned to let go of what was and a perception of a life I thought I had with the help of my spirit team, angels, and source energy. I slowly surrendered to Spirit or soul over a period of 10+ years letting the Universe guide me. I spent years healing from my traumas learning to nurture the child within and partner with soul.

So what does the year 2016 year hold for us now? It is the year of transformation

There are 6 major focuses for this year which are about:

  • Taking personal responsibility for your life,
  • Accepting what is and all that led you to this point,
  • Having faith in where you are going,
  • Following a more soulful path,
  • Manifesting the means to get there,
  • And trusting your soul has your back.

We are entering a new era of spiritual consciousness and our spirit team, Angels, and soul are waiting for us to build a relationship with them. If you have not started yet, are you ready now?

So what is so special about this year?  This year is a 9 year in numerology. Not only are there various cosmic shifts, but understanding this part is very significant. This means the end of a era is near and the future that you are creating through your vibrational alignment is beginning to come to fruition. However, it also means time to get serious and tie up loose ends. Whatever actions you put in place this year will guide the next phase of your life.

Whether you see yourself in a good place or not so good place right now, you have a choice to make. Are you willing to get to work so you can live a more soul-filled life without the pressure of unresolved matters from the past holding you back? Remember, as one door closes another opens. It is all how we choose to view our world. So if you are stuck thinking nothing will get better and all the doom and gloom, then you will not be able to see all the new opportunities and possibilities that await you.

So you might be asking me how?

We were given the answer as given to me by spirit before: “Face your shadow self so your true self may emerge.”  We spend more time running away from self, than getting to know self.  This is why partnering with soul is so important. Talk to soul. Email soul. Go out to dinner with soul. Facebook soul. Text soul.  Get to know yourself and all the divine wisdom you hold within. ALL the answers you seek lie within.

First, take personal responsibility for where you are at in your life. You can not move forward without that. It is important to release all the attachments – emotional, mental, physical – that no longer serve you for your highest and best.

Secondly, accept what is. Accept everything in your past and feel all those buried emotions you have not been able to feel.  Right now see yourself as the caterpillar inside the cocoon  trying to crack it open with the tip of a wing or the leg of a butterfly beginning to emerge, but can’t because it has not fully evolved yet. Making peace with your emotional realities is crucial to breaking free.

If you currently feel stagnant or stuck, I want to say to you it is because you are resisting and letting fear control your progress. It also means you are quite close to acceptance, but something is holding you back.  This is usually something in the emotional plane. So what ends up happening is that certain situations or experiences that you have been attempting to put behind you are constantly repeating themselves. In some cases it is like rapid machine gun fire.

It is important to be in touch with your emotions and all the cords attached to them in order to heal them, process them, and move forward.

Like I said earlier, many also have chosen the path of resistance whether it is done consciously or subconsciously. If you choose to not accept things or to take personal responsibility for your life and let go of stuff, then the patterns of repeating the same old situations with same mistakes continue. Many will continue to feel dissatisfied and unhappy, and many times continue to blame everything and everyone for their life circumstances.

For this to change, it is important to accept the new realities before you. Your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions need to be in complete vibrational alignment. How you navigate your emotions this year will play a big role in your path and overall spiritual development.

Thirdly, have unwavering faith in where you are going. You are no longer that caterpillar, but an emerging butterfly. It is important to make the necessary alterations and improvements in all areas of your life this year. Just like the caterpillar who can not see inside the cocoon, it knows it will soon emerge as a beautiful butterfly.

THEN … Only then will you be ready to break free.

You have a choice … a choice to longer live in the past and emerge as the beautiful butterfly that you are or not. That is your choice.

Since this is a 9 year, things are ending. Why do we fear endings? All this means is you have the freedom to choose the beginning of the next phase of your life. It is all how we choose to focus and see things. So shift your perspective, and you will shift your results.

Free yourself from the restraints, erroneous beliefs, and illusions of the past. Why continue to be stagnant? Let go. Break free from that cocoon that is holding you back from shining. The new things you are trying to accomplish will only bring more frustration and resistance until you release the old.

Activate your personal power and give yourself the gift of healing and soul-fillment.

Partner with your soul, your spirit team, and angels. Ask them for strength, guidance, and help in this transformation.

You are not alone. You can not fly like the butterfly until these endings and purges are complete. Let your divine team help you in the process. They are waiting for you to call upon their assistance, and trust that your soul has your back if nothing else.

 

An important message my spirit team
shared with me and I shared with you

This year is going to be a magnificent year. It is all about how you choose to perceive your world. The Universe is starting off this year with mercury in retrograde. See this as a grand opportunity to get to work. This is the perfect time reevaluate, readjust, and release all the old junk creating resistance in your life.

Shower yourself and all those around you with generosity and compassion. The more you get in touch with self on a deep emotional level, the greater opportunity for growth and change.

This is the year to heal all those unhappy moments in your life as you will be creating a new reality of inner peace and happiness to emerge. You will exchange your erroneous belief systems with new truths and possibilities.

The more you accept where you are at and take personal responsibility for your life, you open the door to all that the Universe has to offer you.

You will morph from the old to the present you and the vibrational alignment you are creating – your will and your desires – will set pace for where you are going.

We create attachments to people, place, and things. When we let go of those emotional attachments, the perspective of our world shifts. You might just feel a huge sigh of relief. Not everything is doom and gloom.

This will be an exciting year if you choose it to be.  It is up to us. However, it is so important to develop a partnership with your soul – the ultimate love affair that lasts for an eternity. Your soul is your guide and can help you attune and navigate the ever changing waves of energy.

We are all one. We are all being called to unite as one for the betterment of all life. We can change the world and make it a better place, but it all starts with finding peace within and to stop the raging wars that reside within self.

Remember, this is just a mere journey … Let go and trust your soul has your back. All is as where is should be. Who is ready to journey with me for an empowering transformative year ?

Thank you all for your love, support, and for being a part of my spiritual journey.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you.

With light, love, and appreciation,
