Jellyfish or sea jellies comes in different shapes and sizes. They are known as sea walnuts. Sea jellies contain less than five percent of organic matter. Sea jellies have an outer layer called the epidermis to cover the body surface. The inner layer is called the gastro-dermis. Between the epidermis and gastro-dermis, there is a thick layer of jelly called the middle jelly. Sea jelly started as a planula larva or egg. Then it becomes a polyp and budding polyp. Later on it becomes an ephyra. When a sea jelly become a medusa, that means that the sea jelly is fully-grown. Sea jellies flow wherever the water currents goes.
Some sea jellies inhabited depths over twelve thousand feet. Some of their tentacles reach over a hundred feet. Sea jellies swim with their tentacles stretched out. When other sea creatures bump into the tentacles, they are in a stinging frenzy. They are carnivores and they feed on zooplankton, comb jellies, and other jellyfish. It takes a sea jellies two hours to take the food from the tentacles to its mouth. Sea jellies have venom utensils for feeding and protection. There are stinging cells on the tentacles to capture food. They do not attack, merely to defend themselves. This “utensil” is called a stinger. Sea jellies multiply so fast that other water creatures there may wipe out by them. How serious the sting depends on the variety of the sea jellies. Most stings happened in tropical or warm waters. Sea jellies are use to kill animals and some are dangerous to humans. If a jellyfish stings a victim, the victim must remove the tentacle of the sea jelly. The victim can use towels, clothing or available materials to remove the tentacle. If not, the tentacle will continue to shoot out venom. To heal the sting of a jellyfish, the victim will need meat tenderizer, sugar, vinegar, plant juices or sodium bicarbonate.

The Jellyfish Jellyfish live in the warm seas of the entire planet. During warmer seasons they tend to drift pole ward, and during cooler months, they float toward the Equator. The powers that jellyfish hold are acceptance and faith. They know that the Creator will provide what is necessary for their survival. They are the only creatures dependent upon movement for the sustenance of its life that has virtually no ability to move on its own. Jellyfish rely on the currents of the ocean and the directions of the wind to move it in ways that it needs to go. There are many species of Jellyfish. The Man of War is the most well known ranging from 3 to 14 inches long, and rising up to 6 inches out of the water. Its tentacles dangle as long as 45 feet or more below the surface. The tentacles are composed of a colony of polyps, which posses muscular stinging cells. When they sense a fish, the stinging cells shoot out barbs into the fish and inject a deadly poison. Jellyfish know how to survive and do not take more food then they need. They move in harmony with the currents of life and can teach us how to flow with the natural forces of Mother Earth. Some ancient healers believe that the tapestry of true spiritual knowledge is held within the transparent form of the jellyfish. Maintaining balance in all areas of ones life is an important lesson for those with this totem. When the jellyfish appears to you ask yourself if you are flowing with life in a balanced way or are you spending too much time drifting and not enough time actively crossing the currents and heading toward your goals. By observing yourself and the jellyfish balance can be attained.

She did it because she thinks the jellyfish is my shadow totem. I think they're disgusting horrible creatures.. *shudders* Seriously I can hardly stand to look at the pictures.
Accursed things are all over the water here in New London harbor, too. Ugh..
hehe... The reason why I posted it is because you have an usually high amount of fear associated with this animal, and yes, Kyz and I both think that it is your shadow totem..
You need to move past your fear of them Mike... You're a big boy, I know that you can handle it...

Blue: I visited a friend tonight and a opossum walked across my path as I went to her door....then when I came home the same thing happened but as I walked to my own door. What an interesting coincidence! I will take the advice it gives me.

Kuro Tenshi: How can one prove to themself that magic is real?

Obviously: One can prove that magic works to themselves by attempting different spells and having positive results that match up with their intention. This is how one proves anything by use of experiment. Anything other than that is simple self-delusion.
