Meaning, Messages & 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.

    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.

    I had a dream I was in a very large place with multiple rectangular pools and massive white pillars. Everything around was white, shiny and had hints of gold sparkles. It looked very angelic and brought me a sense of pure peace and bliss. I was walking around examining a few pools and passing by others. I started hearing calming music and nature sounds and felt lead to one pool in particular. When I found it, the pool was in its own room and was much more extravagant than the rest. There was a fog coming off the water and I could tell something was swimming around. Then a narwhal jumped out all slow motion and beautiful like the little mermaid or a dolphin or something. I got super excited, it felt super magical and it was the only pool I jumped in. That was basically it, but it gave me heebie jeebies & made me feel weird, confused and almost disturbed? I’ve never had a dream make me feel like that but it was similar to when you have a dream your partner or someone you know did something and when you wake up you know it wasn’t real but it still feels like it and you feel weird about that person now. For whatever reason I felt like that and couldn’t stop thinking about it for like 2 or 3 weeks. That was like a year ago and I still don’t know what it means, it still gives me minor heebie jeebies and now I feel a connection to narwhals. I’ve only seen one since and that was about a week ago.

    I heard about/saw pictures of narwhals several years ago. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen anything about them, they were so unique. Then I forgot all about them. Then a couple of nights ago they showed up in my dreams, all night, pointing mostly upright, all around me. I woke up thinking, “that’s so strange.” But really nice all the same. I’m intrigued with your description. Thank you.
