Mermaid Sighting in Israel- Reward Offered!

mermaid_blogThis is for all you mermaid lovers out there who missed this on the news recently … Mermaid fever has officially arrived at the Israeli beach town of  Krivat Yam.  Recently,  locals and tourists alike have flocked to this place for a glimpse of a young mermaid that dozens of people claim to have seen. Many of the sightings have taken place at sunset as the mermaid, described as a cross between a fish and a young girl,  jumps like a dolphin and performs tricks for onlookers before disappearing for the night. According to Sky News, one of the first people to see the mermaid was Shlomo Cohen, who related this story:   “I was with friends when suddenly we saw a woman laying on the sand in a weird way.  At first I thought she was just another sunbather, but when we approached she jumped into the water and disappeared. We were all in shock because we saw she had a tail.” Of course, without proof, it is impossible to say for sure what people are actually seeing.   Not only is this phenomena usually happening at a distance in the low light of sunset, but it is also being partly obscured by the water. Perhaps the $1 million reward, offered by  Krivat Yam officials to the first person that can prove by photo or capture that mermaids really do exist, will help solve this intriguing mystery!

    Hi Brittany! , some say that many of us humans are incarnated from star people, mermaids, mermen, gnomes, elves, Faeries, Pixies, etc.

    I’m not sure if it’s true- but it could be very possible. One day after you cross over to the Light and meet the Creator- you may be surprised to find out that you had some connection with the Mermaids before being incarnated to a human .

    They say that the reason many become human is because we need further spiritual growth to get closer to God that only being a human and going through sufferings as a human can bring.
    We accept this before we are born as human.

    If you love mermaids– there may be some connection — who are we to say?
    I would pray for the mermaids and for the Oceans– and keep sending that prayer energy out there for the Oceans.

    The merpeople are not happy at what many humans in power and in the Corporate World do to hurt the Oceans and the Marine wildlife.

    Hi again, Navneeta! I read your dream of that tree Dryad.

    That is a beautiful dream! even though it seems that the dryad was not happy you saw her– it doesnt mean she doesnt like you. Those in the Faery Realm are not too comfortable with humans being able to see them. For thousands of years most humans could not see them and that is how they like it. Humans do not have a very good reputation with Nature, Wildlife and also with the Faery and Elves Realm. Our bad reputation is deserved.. as you know.

    Even when I saw that faery last May , she was lookng at me with love– then she noticed that I could see her and she also got an uncomfortable look on her face like, “uh oh, i better dissapear!”

    She then dissapeared. But I still felt her presence with me- and I still feel her presence with me many times even now.

    The veil is lifting and many are seeing them more and more. They don’t necessarily feel comfortable about this.

    Keep on giving those trees hugs.

    I think that the tree spirits are not the same as dryads. My impression is that the Dryads are the Guardians of the trees, but each tree has it’s own individual spirit/soul.

    This is like a person catching another person! Who would actually want to catch another person (not a human, but still a person) for MONEY? Dumb humans… the Mer will get mad. Unless it is meant to be, Human and Mer NEVER mix.

    They’re all over the place.
    They live in fresh water, tropics, the arctic and salt water.
    They’re everywhere, but they don’t exactly jump out the sea and wave at you.

    hi Natalie 🙂 I was wondering..I had this amazing dream the night before last about me finding a tree spirit and i was supposed to help him. I tried but then my alarm went off. i went back to sleep and had the same dream. I felt like something was telling me his name was Mitchell, but idk..I was wondering if it was just a dream, so I called out to him. I was like, “Mitchell, if you are really here please show me a sign.” then there was three taps on my window, and there’s nothing near my window that could have hit it. I was going to my friends house the next night, but I really wanted to see if he would visit me again. (or if it was just me, but i dnt think it’s just me, but it might be….idk i feel like someone has been here with me since i had that dream..but anyways..) i had a long dream the next night and it started to creep me out..i wanted it to end, but i couldn’t make it:( i started hearing this purring..i opened my eyes and my friends cat was standing there looking at me..purring..i started to wake up and no one knew how he got in the house. they thought that he probably got in when her dad went out to go work in the yard, but her dad does not, under any circumstances want the cats, well kittens, in the house. so i really honestly doubt that thought. the whole rest of the day i was thinking about him, the tree spirit(i believe) i saw in my dream..i missed him..and it was kind of odd..

    what do you think?

    Mermaids and humans alike needs to be respected. If ever someone gets a photo of it must not exchange it for money.

    ^.^ Interesting I never heard of this before (Mermaid siting not Mermaids). That would be awesome and amazing to see!!

    BTW Kellie-anne that’s really awesome!!! Also I think it’s real, many people don’t believe in ghost their real, there were pictures and stories from the middle ages about fairies and other creatures. And if it was fake who’s the master mind who made it all up? (about fairies)

    i have also had an encounter with a merman! spring break 2009 in florida, i was talking to someone on the beach and a wave hit me in the back and flipped me off my lounge floaty thing and i was tumbling around in the water when a man grabbed me on my forearm and pulled me out of the water. when i came up we made eye contact for about half a second and he swam away and when he was swimming away i felt something gash open my leg and when i got out there was a deep long wound on my leg and i never saw him come up for a breathe. i wish i wouldnt have been choking on water because otherwise i wouldhave asked him what he was and also said thankyou. but when i looked into his eyes it was the strangest things because his eyes looked like something i had never seen before it was on the verge of scary but extremely beautiful. so thats my encounter believe it or not i will always have the image of his gorgeous face in my head. and when i went back to that beach the year after i couldnt stop searching for him in the waters. maybe 2011 will be different 🙂
