Jellyfish Symbolism

Look at this challenge you are facing and treat it as an opportunity. Turn it around!

If Jellyfish has come drifting by you today;

You are being asked to allow yourself to shine from within. Allow those around you to see who you really are and reach out to them with love and affection. There is no need to feel vulnerable when you come from the heart because the heart knows that love is the power and strength from which we all grow. Trusting your heart and its guidance is key for you right now so go with the flow!

If Jellyfish is your Animal Totem;

You know how to use your power of intention and are unafraid to allow the universe to show the way. You follow your instincts easily and quietly and often simply go with the flow of the universe. You have a great deal of ability to take everything in stride. You enjoy keeping things simple and are unafraid to explore your emotions. You have the ability to tackle difficult challenges easily and with a minimum of fuss and stress. You are organized, know how to share the work load, trust the processes you involve yourself in and always come from a place of acceptance and faith.

If Jellyfish has come to you in your Dreams;

To see a Jellyfish in your dream symbolizes the surfacing and healing of painful memories. It is recognition that you are now ready to deal with these aspects of yourself and move on through forgiveness and love. Seek the light in each memory and focus on what the lessons were in these memories. They are all valuable to you in some way. Know that hidden hostility and aggression will never serve you well.

Alternatively Jellyfish is asking you to look at your own self esteem. Are you feeling somewhat inadequate or uncertain about a few things? Take the time to discover why so that you can feel better about yourself and discover the light within you.

Additional Associations for Jellyfish:


  • 😀 so I did this incantation in a spell book I have. My dream was about a family cookout and in that dream my aunt brought a watermelon carved like a Jellyfish

  • If Jellyfish is your animal totem everyone that does not accept you for who you are, will nevertheless be effected by you in some way.

    Think of a jellyfish swimming peacefully in its own current and someone invading its space – which follows is a sting and reminder not to mess with such a person again.

    PS: people don’t always have to accept you, as long as you are honest (transparent) to yourself & learn out of your own transparency.

  • Jellyfish came to me as an image during a meditation to connect with 5th dimensional consciousness and the Arcturian energies. Quite a validation…Thank you.

  • I was stung by a jellyfish a few years ago and the next day discovered I was pregnant. I didn’t think of looking it up until today. Perfect for then and now as well!! Thank you!!

  • Thanks for this.

    I have been working on an incredible project to track down why many of my patients were holding on to water (showing up as weight gain). It has developed into a programme to help them resolve this and related issues.

    Toward the end of the project I found a gene which was misbehaving in these patients bodies. It was a gene which we share in common with the jellyfish, and all manner of consciousness issues are associated with this genes expression.

    First and foremost is the need for Trust and Acceptance, and to go with the flow but be intelligent about deciding which currents to follow.

    You can imagine how excited I am to read your post and see that this is the wisdom of the Jellyfish as you see it too.

    Thanks again

  • I’ve found that totem animal messages have been helpful throughout this huge awakening process I’ve been undergoing in the past year, but this visit from the jellyfish (when I live in the thick of the forested Appalachian mountains next to no sea-water) has brought me to such poignant insight about the trauma that is being raised to the surface to be recognized and healed. Such a beautiful affirmation. Thank you, jellyfish, for sharing your wisdom and supportive insights with me.
