In 2003, I met Seaweed Woman at the ocean. I was heading North to the Olympic Peninsula, or so I thought. Surprised to see beautiful crashing ocean waves, I realized I had driven an hour off course and was now at the ocean. I stopped my car with a big smile on my face and ran down to the beach. I blessed the ocean’s vastness. As I soaked in her beauty, a vision came to me…
I saw a woman spirit dressed in white emerge from the sea carrying a limp woman covered in seaweed. The woman in white lay the seaweed woman on the sand. I asked the women spirit what I need to do. I felt compelled to bring seaweed woman close to me, hold her in my arms, and allow her to enter my heart and become a part of me. As I did this, I felt a strong sense of coming home. I thanked the sea for my gift.
I received a message: the seaweed woman needs to become part of all women everywhere. As I drove away, I sensed six other seaweed women coming out of the sea walking towards six women I knew at the time who needed her.
Right after this experience I drove to my friend’s house in Sequim, Washington. Synchronicity brought me together with the chief of the Northwest Makah tribe. After, I shared my story with him, he told me that my story was the Makah people’s Creation Story.
The land told me its story. Many of the old legends are lost as elders pass away, and Les encouraged me to write down the stories that emerge from the land and share them. Les drummed and sang me his tribal songs, and I was transported to another time when the whales spoke to me with their songs.
Later, this message came through…
The Seaweed Queen graces a throne of seaweed, barnacles, and choice pieces of oceanic treasures. She is not in want of anything. All her pleasures and desires and fulfillment are hers, always. She graces the Sea with her Spirit and befriends all the life of the sea, all the animals, fish, mermaids, dolphins, whales, jellyfish, coral, and exquisite light beings in this vast fluid kingdom.
Hers is a kingdom of plenty. All is available within easy reach. All is instilled with a deep sacred honoring. She knew her place and her purpose in the great scheme of things. What troubled her most is the ancient ways that are lost to the people of the lands. They had forgotten their place in this ocean. They had become unconscious to the parallels of their life and the life of the Sea.
She wanted to come into the women to speak through them… to tell the tales of the Sea and the magic of the waters, and the life of the yet unborn. This is her way.
Seaweed Woman (Queen) wants to express herself through the women who walk on the Earth and live near the Sea. She wants to offer us a fluid abundance of life attuned to the watery ways of Creation, to hold our bodies in this sacred element of water, to remember our birthing process and where we came from.
She wants us to live from this place of deep honoring and remembering of how ancient our knowledge and truth is in the ways of the Earth Mother and her vast oceans. Tasting the salt in our tears, the truth in our remembering, the cosmos in our waters.
Let us remember how to align with the Great Mystery and the vast emptiness of space forever challenging us to give up our illusions. There is more. More than we can ever possibly imagine in a new way of diving deep into the unknown.
Oh Camilla, thank you for listening to this energy from the Sea… a part of you becoming whole and free and fluid and a woman-Goddess incarnate. Please hold your own Seaweed Woman as a Queen within you. Let her speak and feel and live with abundant blessings. She is a magical part of you and a teacher for the world. Your energy can remind people of the sacred seas and their hidden mysteries, like a woman’s hidden mysteries. Where the true treasures lie. Be well. In Love with the salt of the oceans…
