Sharks are dreaded creatures. There’s no question about that. For humans, they are scary beings of the underwater because of their immense predatory traits. Of course, we are all well aware that sharks have taken dozens of lives already.
However, this doesn’t mean that we cannot learn anything from these sharks. After all, the shark symbolism is still prominent and worth taking it to account. Some of the people that approached me to think that they have a special connection to this creature.
At some point, it can make you question if these people have the aggressive nature of sharks. It is a natural assumption considering that we are talking about the ocean’s fiercest predator. After serious contemplating and meditation, I got the following discoveries about the shark as a spirit animal.
It is not surprising that sharks are feared by people. Therefore, if someone says that he/ she finds a special connection with the creature, you will immediately think that something is off.
But before making such a prejudice, you need to consider first that sharks only become deadly when we are in their presence. Needless to say, you should never swim with sharks on their territory because you will be put in a deleterious situation.
If you believe that you carry out the shark spirit animal, then you are someone that should not be messed with. You are not particularly aggressive without any reason. As long as you are not taunted or provoked, you will remain to pay attention.
You only assert your dominance once you have felt that your territory is threatened. For instance, if someone wants to hurt your family or friends, you just don’t sit without doing anything. You always put yourself in front in defense of them. Of course, these instances can put you into scuffles where you can get hurt.
However, the most notable thing here is that you always come victorious. It simply proves that you are at the apex and nothing, and no one under protection will get hurt.
But of course, I advise that you should minimize unnecessary aggressions. In this way, you can remain imposing becoming a worrisome threat. At least, we know that being a source of trouble is not a good thing at all.
Other than this symbolism, there are some other aspects of sharks that you should know.
Here are some of them.
Sharks can display immense hunger. When their stomachs are churning, they will never stop being bloodthirsty. They will hunt until their insatiable desire to be full will be satisfied.
Of course, this trait can be reflected in your life. It signifies your hunger for success and opportunities. You don’t stop working until such time your goals are met or achieved. In short, you are an overzealous person. You don’t want someone or something to get in your way. If they do, you immediately topple them.
Furthermore, you don’t entertain discouragements and other forms of discouragement. You go ahead and do the things that you want. If you fail, you just consider it as a setback and not a sign that you are wrong entirely. Your persistence is worth emulating since it can lead to the realization of one’s full potential.
The more you grind, and the more you work, the more benefits you claim. And undoubtedly, you can bring yourself to exert too much effort if they are enthusiastic at all. That’s the very reason why you are very blessed–you have the spirit to remain passionate about the things that you do even if they yield little to no success at all!
One of the probable shark symbolism is a sharp instinct. After all, the senses of shark are heightened to such a degree that they can detect changes in their surroundings. They also use their keen senses in hunting their prey.
For humans, these extra senses are all part of our intuition. And not all people have this kind of gift. For instance, the higher level of intuition, which is clairvoyance, is used by psychics to see and feel things that are not part of this world.
Intuition is quite the same as your gut-feeling. It kicks in situations where you need to be decisive. It brings you to full guard so that no one can take advantage of you. Furthermore, your instincts can tell you if there’s something wrong around you. I am sure that you are familiar with stories where people immediately felt that there is something wrong with the person they are talking about or the place they are in.
Another interpretation that can be drawn here is your perceptiveness. Once you have the shark spirit animal or shark totem, you are capable of reading people like open books. You can know their intentions even if they keep it hidden from you.
Lover Of Peace
Sharks, when not in a hunt mode or being threatened, are generally peaceful creatures. In fact, you can say that they are pretty laid back. They can remain idle without doing anything. They enjoy experiencing the calm of the ocean depths.
Having the shark as your spirit animal, you possess this kind of attitude. As much as possible, you don’t want to deal with other people. If they don’t step in your territory, you pay no mind at all. You simply want to do your own business. You are very peaceful when you are in such a state. Moreover, you are not bothered if you are alone.
The shark symbolism tells that a person who possesses the shark totem or spirit animal is fierce, enthusiastic, and protective. These traits are rarely found on other spirit animals. If you have an affinity to sharks, then you should cultivate these aspects into your life. Who knows? They might help you attain the things that you want. It is not even a long bow to draw that these qualities of a shark can direct to your life purpose.
