Is it September already? lol
September’s Theme is Speech. You know the saying “the tongue is sharper than a sword”? I may be phrasing it wrong. But you get the gist of it…right? Your speech can be used to lift up or tear someone down. How are you using your speech? Is it for good? Are you speaking up for truth and justice? Are you speaking words of comfort for those who need it? Or are you participating in negative self-talk? How about talking about others in a negative way? Gossiping? Starting this month, let us start to use our speech for good. That doesn’t mean we won’t get angry or frustrated at times. It doesn’t mean we will always be in a happy go lucky mood. What it does mean that practicing more self-awareness as we go about our days and to be mindful of how we speak. Even if it is about ourselves..remember thoughts are things.
If you chose ~whis·per
speak very softly using one’s breath without one’s vocal cords, especially for the sake of privacy.
“Alison was whispering in his ear”
murmur, mutter, mumble, speak softly, breathe
Guidance: You have been hearing correctly. That “small and still voice” has been waiting to connect with you. The whispers from Spirit are directing you as to where you need to be at this time. You may have been uncertain about a path to take. This message is direct confirmation and validation that those nudges you have been receiving that you are on target. Don’t be afraid…for there are only good things ahead now.
Totem Tuesday~Humpback Whale
The whale spirit animal is the earth’s record keeper for all time. As a totem, the whale teaches you about listening to your inner voice, understanding the impact your emotions have on your everyday life and following your own truth. When the whale enters your life, it may be time to closely examine where you are, the actions and emotions that have brought you to this point, and what you can do to alleviate existing drama and unrest and find peace. Those who have the whale as their animal totem is in touch with true reality. They are nurturers and go-getters who understand there is more to this life than meets the eye.
The whale is commonly associated with emotion, inner truth, and creativity. Here are additional meanings for this totem:
Physical and emotional healing
Keeper of history
Importance of family and community
Among the most recognized modern tales of the whale as a teacher is that of Captain Ahab’s pursuit of the gigantic Sperm Whale, known as Moby Dick. Superstition, the sea as a transformative vessel, and an examination of the massive mammal as a creature of undefined greatness pervade the novel. The whale is symbolic of that which cannot be easily vanquished — just as a person’s inner truth, voice, and creativity cannot be easily silenced or subdued.
Whales and Communication
Whales are amazing communicators able to connect and coordinate with other whales over thousands of miles of ocean. The whale supports us in communicating clearly from our hearts to bridge large distances with others. Whales are also very family oriented, so the whale helps us bridge any gaps that are keeping us from connecting deeper with our loved ones. Whales support us in speaking our truth with emotion, vulnerability, and power.
The Whale Spirit Animal, a Messenger of Good (and Bad) Fortune
In some cultures and traditions, healthy whales swimming free are fortuitous. To see a whale unexpectedly is a sign of good luck. On the flip side, seeing or stumbling upon a diseased or beached whale is considered a bad omen that heralds ill fortune.

The Whale Spirit Animal Requests Emotional Rebirth
If the whale is calling to you, then it might be time to take inventory of the emotional pressures you’re under. Just as the whale can dive into the depths of the sea and endure immense pressure, people holding the whale spirit animal also are able to endure both emotional and physical pressures. But not forever, just as the whale must surface to take a new breath, so must you. If the whale is showing up this could be a powerful opportunity to remember, let go and forgive. Making space to give birth to your fullest expression and flowing creativity.
Whale Spirit Animal
The Whale and Folklore
The whale is a central power animal recognized in many Native American folklore traditions that are honored and respected, especially among Native American tribes on the Pacific Coast. As a compassionate, solitary creature, the whale is closely associated with wisdom and awareness of the spiritual realm.
Whales and Dreams
The whale as a power animal blends the conscious and unconscious. When seen in a dream, the large mammal is offering guidance to help you become a mover and shaker who will take charge your life without hesitation.
Dreaming of a whale means it is time to stand up and speak up. Whales are frequently interpreted as representing awareness and intuition. It is time to turn up the volume on that inner voice of yours and listen more closely to what it has to say.
A whale’s immense size can also be symbolic of feeling overwhelmed. Maybe you have taken on too much at work, in your personal life or social obligations. It may be time to cut back some.
While many traditions look to the whale animal totem as a teacher, hunting the animal is also central to some tribes and cultures. Take, for instance, the Makah Tribe in Neah Bay, Washington.
Whales are central to nearly all aspects of Makah culture, from the tribe’s songs and designs to basket weaving. Hunting the power animal is considered a lesson that offers discipline and purpose to the Makah people. The hunt, which incorporates age-old ceremonies and rituals, also yields practical items, such as oil and sinew, which can come in handy during difficult times.
(My daughter and I saw these magnificent creatures last month during a whale watching. I think I was more amazed than she was. I was in awe of them!)
If you chose ~swift
happening quickly or promptly.
“a remarkably swift recovery”
prompt, rapid, sudden, immediate, instant, instantaneous
Guidance: You have been stuck in a rut. And not only that, it seems as if situations in your life have been stagnant. Spirit wants you to know that slowly but, surely the blockages that held you back are being diminished… You will be able to proceed and what happens next is up to you.
If you chose ~gla·cier
noun: glacier; plural noun: glaciers
a slowly moving mass or river of ice formed by the accumulation and compaction of snow on mountains or near the poles.
Guidance: Spirit is saying that you have allowed a block of ice to form around your heart, mind, and aura. Yes, past circumstances have dictated that this glacier was needed. You were fragile and needed to protect yourself. That isn’t the case any longer, you are allowed to let this glacier drift off and away. The “ice” surrounding you is no longer necessary. It is safe…truly it is safe now. Release the burden, just let it go.
