Real Mermaid Sightings.I have always had weird things happen to me in the water, Mythology has roots on reality and actual events encrusted in the past that bring forward the imagination to contemplate whether there is something else there than "mere stories" We themselves are little mermaids considering that doctors and scientists confirm that 70% of human body weight consists of water, 72% of present world surface is water, Man needs water for everything, He can survive without food for up to two or three weeks but cannot survive without water for the same period.The Bible also says the foundation of the whole earth is upon the waters.
“You who laid the foundations of the earth
so that it should not be moved forever,
you covered it with the deep as with agarment,
the waters stood above the mountains.” (Ps. 104:5-6)
God’s throne itself is upon the waters. This shows the importance God himself attaches to water.
“The voice of the LORD is
over the water;
The God of glory thunders;
The LORD is over many waters.
The LORD sat enthroned at the Flood,
And the LORD sits as King Forever”
Mermaids or water spirits do actually exist, but in the spiritual realm and manifest by materializing their flesh to people who are deep into magic and they usually make you pay a high price for visions, gifts, fame, children for barren women ect, they are not a good thing to seek after, be content with the current fish population and different species,sea stars and lovely seaweed because the spiritual side of the ocean it's rather a fallen one and closed from our reach for a reason.
I should know... because I used to be a solitary witch and had scary happenings after doing water magick and seeking for sirens in the ocean. I know it sounds silly but reality is not so simple, there are things we cannot see but are there nonetheless. According to this book : Incredible Mysteries and Legends of the Sea by Edward Rowe Snow in November 16, 1822-British publication, The Mirror, listed ten different mermaid appearances on the sea
-1531-Merman caught in the Baltic and presented to King Sigismund of Poland
-1610-Captain John Whitbourne reported sighting a mermaid in the harbor of St. John's, Newfoundland.
-1614-John Smith saw a mermaid, swimming "with grace," having large eyes, finely shaped nose that was "somewhat short," and "well-formed ears that were rather too long." Also "long green hair imparted to her an original character by no means unattractive."...had begus to experience "the first effect of love" until he realized that from the waist down, she was a fish.
-1673-John Jocelyn reported that his friend, Mr. Miller, had sighted a merman in Maine's Casco Bay. The merman put a hand over one side of his canoe, threatening to capsize it. Miller chopped off the hand with a hatchet, and the merman disappeared into the water, "dyeing the water purple with its blood."
-1730-A French ship's crew spotten a merman off Newfoundland, for several hours. This account was signed by all in the crew who could write and sent to the Compte de Maurepas.
-Unknown year-Gloucester, Massachusetts-mermaid boarded a fishing craft, clinging to taffrail with one hand, which was amputated much like the story from 1673. The mermaid was supposed to have heaved a "human" sigh before disappearing. The men examined the hand and found it to be exactly like that of a human woman's.
And there is much more, according to this other book: The Water Spirit kingdom (which btw is free online and I higly recommend for Christians and non Christians ) http://prophet.tv/books/debo/THE_WATER_SPIRIT_KINGDOM.htm
"The water spirit arm of the kingdom of darkness exhibits certain attributes and characteristics which are common to people, places and cities where there is apparent manifestation or presence of these spirits.
1. Excessive pride and arrogance, manifesting in self-confidence, critical attitude towards others, total independence, desiring to be served, desire to be honored, desire to control others, boasting over achievements and dishonoring constituted authority.
“Because your heart is lifted up and
you say I am a god and I seat in the
of gods, in the midst of the sea...
And your heart is lifted up because of your riches”
“... My river is my own,
I made it for myself” (Ez. 29:3b).
Pharaoh arrogated to himself the power of creation and of being a god. (See also, 1 Cor. 8:5-6.)
2. Homes and marriages are affected resulting in broken homes and marriages.
3. Difficulty for people to get married and stay married
4. “Churches” of error operate in areas where there is manifestation of water spirits.
5. They attack God’s work and God’s servants and unless God’s grace helps the servants, they fall into sexual sins or into heresy. In many coastal or riverime areas, we have seen many Holiness preachers trapped by sexual sins and falling into such sins. Promiscuity, juvenile delinquency, immorality and prostitution are common sins where they operate.
6. They lock up people’s material wealth and fortunes in the waters (Nah. 2:6).
7. They cause sexual abuse in dreams to those who are under their influence and they see themselves swimming in dreams or bathing by the rivers, etc.
8. Men and women that have water spirit problems find it difficult to be spiritually strong because of attacks from the water-attacks on their spiritual growth, i.e., prayer, Bible study.
9. They reveal secrets to their worshippers and that’s why their worshippers see “visions” and are involved in divination (Ezek 28:3).
10. Kings and traders have gained riches by the wisdom given them by water spirits (Ezek. 28:4).
11. They cause delay and difficulties in conception.
12. Loss of desire for spouse because they have sex in dreams with their spirit spouses in the spirit.
13. They cause people to love pleasures excessively.
14. They promote sorceries, enchantments and divination (Nah. 3:1-4). They constitute a powerful level of witchcraft (Deut. 18:10-11).
15. They manifest violence because they are violent spirits, i.e., the spirits in the Gardarene demoniacs were responsible for driving the swine violently down the steep into the sea and drowning them (Mark 5:7-13). Nineveh was situated by the sea and was reported to be a bloody war-like and violent city (Nahum 3:1-3).
16. They impact on people the tendency to go nude, i.e., this is the spirit behind people who walk naked on nude beaches. They alter the personality of people they inhabit, i.e., a normally decent person will see nothing wrong in walking around nude, even at the beach.
17. Water spirits bring evil characteristics into kings and presidents and through them into cities and nations- pride, pollution, terror, wickedness and immorality. In other words, they rule and govern whole nations which are under their influence through manipulation of the presidents and other political leaders.
18. Water Spirits manifesting as Leviathan also manifest these effects on people:
Insanity, paralysis, schizophrenia and other illnesses
Discord, strife and accusation
Chaos and suffering
Proud, haughty, condescending, and arrogant attitude.
Lack of concentration, learning difficulties
Gloominess and depression
Unteachable, judgmental, possessive and legalistic
Seeks to control and associated with Jezebel spirit
Independent attitude, excessive self- confidence
Deafness and blindness to the Holy spirit, counterfeit ministries and worship
Miscommunication, deception, twisting the truth, lying, gossip and slander.
Dishonoring of authority.
(Culled from Amanda Buys, The Four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water)
19. Since their ob
20. They strengthen themselves through human blood and so they use many devises like air, road and water accidents, sickness, ritual killing, wars and other means by which they shed blood.
21. They use material and financial resources to manipulate their devotees: “Bow before me and I will make you rich” and many have bowed to them to serve them. They have by their wisdom monopolized and cornered a lot of the world’s materials resources, and they flaunt these to enslave undiscerning people.
“With your wisdom and understanding
you have gained riches for yourself
and gathered gold and silver into
your treasuries. By your great wisdom
in trade, you have increased your riches and
your heart is lifted up because of your riches”
