The ocean, with its vastness and ethereal beauty, has always held a mesmerising allure for humanity. Yet, for some individuals, this connection runs deeper, stirring profound emotions and a sense of oneness. In this exploration, we embark on a voyage to understand the intriguing question: Why do we feel such a strong connection to the ocean? Through a blend of philosophy, psychology, and spiritual insight, we will delve into the depths of this enigmatic bond.

The Primordial Cradle:

From the moment we emerge into this world, we are enveloped in the fluid embrace of the womb. Water, the very essence of life, nourishes and sustains us. Could this primal association with water be the foundation of our profound connection to the ocean? In the depths of our subconscious, echoes of our origin resonate, drawing us back to the source.

Nature’s Eternal Rhythm:

The ocean’s perpetual ebb and flow mirror the rhythms of existence itself. Just as the tides rise and fall, life unfolds in cycles of growth, change, and renewal. Our souls are attuned to this universal rhythm, and the ocean becomes a tangible embodiment of the cosmic dance. When we stand at the water’s edge, we are reminded of the impermanence of all things and our interconnectedness with the web of life.

The Call of Mystery:

Beyond the vast expanse of the ocean lies a realm of mystery and the unknown. The depths conceal ancient secrets, untamed creatures, and uncharted territories. It is within this enigma that our imaginations roam free, finding solace in the uncertainty. The ocean becomes a symbol of our insatiable thirst for exploration and a reminder that life’s greatest treasures often lie in the uncharted waters of our own souls.

Serenity and Transformation:

The ocean possesses an unparalleled ability to induce a sense of tranquility and peace within us. The rhythmic crashing of waves, the salty air that kisses our skin, and the vastness that stretches beyond the horizon all conspire to quiet our restless minds. In the presence of the ocean, we find solace and a sanctuary for introspection. It becomes a catalyst for personal transformation, inviting us to release our burdens and embrace the boundless potential within.

A Source of Power and Resilience:

The ocean’s awe-inspiring power reminds us of our own strength and resilience. Its roaring waves teach us the importance of adaptability and the ability to weather the storms of life. In the face of adversity, the ocean stands as a testament to the indomitable spirit within us all. As we gaze upon its vastness, we are reminded that, like the ocean, we too have the power to rise, overcome, and forge our own path.

The profound connection many individuals feel towards the ocean stems from a delicate interplay between our primordial origins, the universal rhythms of nature, the allure of mystery, the transformative power it holds, and its embodiment of resilience. To stand by the ocean is to stand at the threshold of infinite possibilities, bridging the gap between our earthly existence and the eternal mysteries of the cosmos. So, the next time you find yourself captivated by the ocean’s embrace, allow its ethereal beauty to awaken your senses and nurture the depths of your soul.

I feel like the ocean is calling out to me every day,and I feel like I am the only one that has this happening.It seems to call my name.

I don’t know why but when I have been in the heat too long I start to feel dizzy, I can barely walk, my neck itches and the only thing I can think about is water and the ocean.
Also is it normal for your blood to smell like shrimp / prawns?

Ocean lover

The sight the smell, everything about the ocean I love. The cool calm waves , or the huge dark seas pleasures me greatly. When I’m underwater all the worry’s get washed away and all I feel is the cool calm sea. Every one I know does not love the ocean like me. And all of my family thinks I like barbies and American girl like my sister. No, no I don’t. I like the waves, and I try my everything to go in it. Sometimes I even get my clothes drenched. When I’m in the sea, I always feel like I belong here, right here. I feel like I belong to the sea.


I don’t know. Sometimes, if I stare at any form of water (ex: rain, pool, mist) I feel like it takes my suggestion and moves another direction if I want it too. What do I do, i don’t get it!


I feel such a strong connection, i don’t know what it is but i feel like i belong in the water, is that normal? also i feel like i can control the water….

I live in the mountains and Every time I go to the ocean I feel a connection it’s like it’s pulling me in and I want it to pull me in too, the ocean feels like my home and maybe it’s God telling me that’s where I should start my life you know but when it’s time to go back home I can’t it’s the most heartache I have ever felt, it even makes me want to cry when we are a state way so i just try not to think about it it’s so weird….


I feel the same way! I don’t believe in a past life though and I just don’t understand why I feel so connected with the ocean. My whole life has been like this. It feels like I belong there..


There’s a possibility you could be mermaid- kin. Actually, I’m mermaid- kin, and I just shifted my tail! If you want more beautiful info, go to thesirenscove.com. please, I have never been wrong about knowing who is mermaid- kin, and who isnt, and science has nothing to do with our connection to the water, it is longing to be a part of it, and love, that makes us mermaids. Nothing scientific there.


I don’t know, but I have a theory that “pruning” or the wrinkling of skin when in water to long is not pruning but evolving, like if you stayed completly emerged into water for a LONG, LONG time your skin would change.


I too feel the same exact way. I know many that are afraid of the ocean and wont even go in it. I on the other hand like you feel like its home and it calls to me, i feel its where I belong. I do believe its a past life connection. I am hoping one day to be able to live closer to the sea.

You are very closely related chemically…you are made of about 70% water.


It’s possible you have had pleasurable experiences at or having to do with the Ocean in this life and very many other lifetimes. I have the same feeling about Ocean Beaches. We each might not remember all of these experiences, but that does not mean certain past memories cannot effect us today…


I don’t think it’s because of past life regression. I think it is because the ocean is awe inspiring and terrible and fascinating.


I think your astral self is a mermaid. lmfao.

i don’t really think maybe that is a pull to “devolve” but perhaps just something there calling – it calls to me as well -you may have had ties with it in past


I don’t believe in past life. As a Christian I believe we live once and that’s it. I love the water too and that is why I bought a home near a lake. God gave us this world to enjoy. So enjoy one of the pleasures God gave you as the lovely fine person you are.


i to have a very strong pull to the see.
sea water and blood is not all that different – the sea even has an embryonic smell to me that makes me feel like it is the womb of the world.
it is beautiful – peaceful – you can float in it – swim in it – become one with it.


Mother Hydra is calling you….(All life did originate from the Ocean, correct? Your name is a Lovecraft reference as well.)
