The Mystery of Mermaids

There are legends that have been shared for many years about mythical creatures called mermaids; They appear as a beautiful woman from the waist up but from the waist down, they have a fish’s tale and they swim freely under the deep blue sea…

You can’t help but admire their long beautiful hair that gently flows through the water as they swim. It’s also very possible that mermaids have magical powers, such as water bending and they can swim so fast that you wouldn’t catch them in sight. Sometimes their emotions can affect the weather; When you hear a storm nearby the ocean, they might be a little sad, but sometimes if they are feeling giddy or want to play, it might begin to snow.

Many years ago, men have claimed that they had very unpleasant encounters with mermaids, were they have portrayed them as evil creatures. When sailors were out in the sea, they would gaze upon the beauty of a mermaid and have become hypnotized by their enchanting singing, which leads the sailors to their death because of a shipwreck.

In many stories, mermaids are often portrayed as sirens, which are evil creatures, who can lead anyone to death with their enchanted and beautiful voices while singing; But not all sirens are mermaids with half fish bodies. They sometimes can look like a beautiful woman with a slight difference from a human being or sometimes they are similar to a bird but every story is different. You don’t have to be afraid to meet a beautiful mermaid; Not all mermaids are evil.

Mermaids are also known to be very kind beings, who can rescue you if you are stranded in the sea and you might even receive a friendly gift from the treasures they have found. It’s as if they are the guardian angels of the sea. Wouldn’t you agree?

Do you believe that mermaids exist?

Love always,
