Whales are the world's largest mammals, and the Blue Whale is the largest creature on
Earth! These warm-blooded creatures have blubber to insulate and store food they need.
Whale bones are soft and porous, enabling them to store food in the form of oil, unlike
land mammals whose bones are hard. The softness of their bones enables them to grow to
an enormous size and still float in the water. Underwater, whales don't have good eye sight,
but they have excellent hearing and use a technique called "echo location" to communicate
with other whales. By using their powerful tail flukes to steer
and propel them, they are able to utilize their fins to twist and turn about in the water.
Having been born with a protective coat of blubber, whales know how important insulation can be.
They understand the sacred power of water and realize the importance of taking time out to breathe.
Their sensitivity to sound and movement connects them to the core energy of primal life.
Whale reintroduces us to our creative and intuitive energies to show us a talent we've forgotten
about or haven't been aware existed. People with this totem are able to understand the ancient
language of "energy vibrations," and are able to distinguish where others are truly coming from. Whale
asks us to recall our past and listen to its stories so we can creatively heal old wounds.
