Meaning, Medicine & Magic

Narwhal symbolizes magic powers, freedom, and empathic abilities. Narwhal is the Unicorn of the sea – channeling magic through its tusk as it points to the sky, constantly remembering its spiritual mission.

Narwhal uses its own body as a magic wand to connect to the divine and feel into deeper realities. You don’t need a special tool or gear to be connected. You are part of the Universe and can tap in at any time.

This unique spiral tusk is an extension of Narwhal’s body and is packed with thousands of sensory receptors. The spiral shape guides the natural flow of growth and perspective as this unique antenna feels deeply into its environment.

Narwhals are incredibly empathic and sensitive, noticing and experiencing things beyond the average gates of perception. So sensitive in fact, that no Narwhal has ever been successfully kept in captivity for long.

Allow yourself the freedom and space you need and deserve. You can find peace with your overwhelming feelings and traverse the arctic cold waters successfully by surrounding yourself with a nurturing social pod that respects your sensitive nature as a gift. Find your soul family and travel with them. Community is vital. Freedom does not mean isolation.

    Hello dear ones, narwhale came to me in shamanic journey, the first time he give me, A tooth. I couldn’t figure out why narwhale was coming. But then I discovered the spiral in the tooth. Spiral has become a major piece in my spiritual journey. Next time creation bear brought me to an ice flow and I became a narwhale and did a deep dive with the pod. In Council I have often said I want to dive deep. The next encounter, hey can I shape shifted into a narwhale and with the perception of all those nerves in there spiral wand, I was seeing the colors oh my chakras expanding . The blessings of spirit abound all we need to do is remember
    Love nils in deer bear spirit

      I love how deep you go with Narwhal through its infinite spiral. So much wisdom and truth in its shape. Spiders and Nautilus are also excellent teachers about spirals.

    A narwhal tusk was one item used to subdue the attacker on London Bridge today 2019 Nov 29..
    An unidentified citizen grabbed the tusk from a wall and together with a couple of other civilians, wrestled the deranged (suspected terrorist) man down, who to that point had stabbed 5 passersby, killing 2. The suspect was wearing what appeared at the time to be a suicide vest.
    I find the symbolism remarkable; that the tusk conferred bravery and was used to protect civilized community.
    Send blessings to narwhals everywhere and the humans working to conserve and protect them. We appreciate their gifts.

    • Tanya Casteel

      Yes, sending blessings and gratitude. Thank you for sharing.

    I had a dream that a narwhal was killed accidently under the water because someone put a knife through a blanket or pad laying on the water and it went into the narwhal. I was sad.
