Chambered Nautilus
Nautilus pompilius

Essence: An experience of connection to a divine force that flows into ordinary life, bringing insight and synchronicity.

Use: For times when external events disrupt our ability to find our way. Chambered nautilus opens us up to a structure that allows stillness within and from this place to act aligned to a purpose. It builds back self-love and respect after experiences that have led to shame and desolation. Use for displacement, loss of home and when one’s place has been taken or destroyed. This remedy also helps people who have been made to feel guilty through projection and blame.

Description: Nautili are considered to be living fossils. They first appeared about 500 million years ago during the Cambrian epoch. The graceful shell, from which this essence is made, is a nearly perfect equiangular spiral or logarithmic spiral. The curvature follows this logarithmic spiral with each turn being exactly three times the size of the one below it. The size of the spiral increases, but its shape is unaltered with each successive curve.
Nautili start creating their shell as soon as they hatch. It begins about the size of a pea, and at each successive stage of its development, the nautilus moves into a new chamber and seals off the old chamber. These chambers are gas-filled flotation chambers and each is connected by a small tube, which acts like a siphon, regulating the density of gas, enabling the nautilus to control its buoyancy.
It moves shell first, so it can’t see where it is going. The nautilus spends the day hiding down in the depths of the ocean, approximately 400 metres down. At night they ascend to the surface to feed. They have tentacles that can smell and manipulate and they also have highly developed chemical senses that can detect predators and food. Octopuses are their main predator. Nautili are rare and protected.

Meaning: The key to this remedy is the spiral structure of the nautilus. It is through this that we may reach for support as we find ourselves stuck in negative grooves and patterns that seem at a variance to our purpose. This remedy helps us access the totality and sudden flashes of inspiration that can shift us swiftly from one state to another. The spiral is a symbol of life always in movement. The spiral is at the beginning of our life. We emerge from water, as the first substance, and the vortical energy of matter and consciousness, and also disappear into it at the end. Within us is the continuum of the consciousness of the beginning and the whole.
