I just found out about this and I’m really exited to start my shifting process. Tell me if you have any tips for me, thanks! 1 day ago
if anyone even comes on here, which I’m sure plenty of pplz are looking but not saying anything.
So since most of y’all are teens (unlike me) who live with parents and/or have no income, you might find it hard to pull a mer-diet. My best suggestions is get away from the American grocery store you shop at and go to a specialty store. If you live in a culturally diverse area like I do, hike it to the Asian stores! Expensive and nothing is in a language you know (most likely), but their selection is huge. (Have you ever seen a nori selection taking up five shelves?) If that doesn’t work, try ordering online (here’s a site that gathers from Maine: https://www.seaveg.com/shop/). If you need an excuse for your parents, if they’re cool enough, they should understand your interest in exploring food and such from other cultures. If they’re even cooler they’ll understand how most food at ‘foreign’ restaurants are Americanized, so getting to the actual specialty stores is key. If you’re in a japanese club at school, that’s an even better excuse. Or you could go to the store with your friends who know Japanese, like I did.
If you’re doomed to a chain grocery store, most have nori (seaweed/the stuff used to roll sushi)...which is probably about it. Luckily today I found this: http://www.shopwell.com/open-nature-seaweed-roasted/nc/p/7989371054 which is basically the same as nori but has a slightly salty taste and is way smaller than a nori sheet (not to mention on 99 cents). There isn’t much to it, tho.
I don’t remember if the sites that have this ‘diet’ mention this, but if you can’t get sea vegetables, tropical fruits that grow close to the water should be good enough too…surely a mermaid could crawl a few feet onto a beach to snag a coconut…and beyond that, I’m sure any other fruit/veggies are fine, depending on your personal diet. Remember you aren’t going to survive just on seaweed. It has few calories, so, variety!
Or if you’re a fish hobbyist, look into growing edible freshwater plants…something I might take up!
I only do the ‘mermaid diet’ thing off and on (until today lol). I figured I’d try it a little harder this time around. I have (as far as I know) a strictly vegetarian diet, so it might be a little difficult. 1 day ago
I think I’m going to try and make posting on here almost a daily thing. It’ll be like a blog we all share to talk about mermaid stuff on! :D I was onhttp://mermaidblog14.blogspot.com/ (and it is SUPER helpful, BTW) as I was reading I felt a numbness spread through my lower legs (calves, feet) and then a sort of throbbing, prickling sensation start up. It was kind of weird but it felt like a p shift kind of thing, but it went away after a few minutes :( and keeps coming in waves. (See what I did there? Waves? No one… ok…) But yeah, I feel like I’m on the right track. Yay! 3 days ago
YAY nevermind its working!!!! My computer is 7 years old and it has… well…. hiccups, I guess you could say. Check out that website though! It is very helpful and goes through a lot of procedures. 4 days ago
NOOOOO one of my favorite shifting websites (for all shifters, not just mermaids) may have just closed!! WHYY? It’s themagickalhaven.webs.com and my computer says that it can’t access the page because it couldn’t find the server. I hophopehope its not closed

I’ve been thinking this over for a while. KissingMidnight (Claire) hasn’t been on 43things for almost 18 months. Where did she go? I think it’s kind of weird that she just disappeared. 1 week ago
I’ve been making great progress with my m shift. I have been able to keep a mermaid mindset for most of the day everyday, and I feel like am close to getting it and having it all the time. Yay!!! 1 week ago
The goal is called get rid of lord Bearclaw. Join it if you want to be a mermaid, werewolf etc. Lbc always has to try and ruin our life goals. Join now to become what you want to be and go against him!!! 1 week ago
Hey guys! I’m sorry for being absent for like 2 weeks, there is a lot of stuff going on and I’m really busy. But I’ve made TONS of progress in this time. I am close to getting my m shift I think, and whenever I concentrate for a while my legs feel king of numb and like they have the pins and needles at the same time. I hope that I can begin the real process into p shifting once I get my m shift! And by the way, if you are on board with the whole diet thing and are like hard core, try some sea vegetables. Here is a link for a website that gives you tons of examples and recipes. (http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/food-guides/sea-veggies) if the link doesn’t work, just copy paste into your browser. 1 week ago
Ugh okay so it’s been I swear like 50 years bu I finally finished my m-shift so now, wait for it, drumroll please, pshift time! I’ve tried to pshift before but I didn’t know that you had to mshift and fshift and stuff. So finally I am prepared… I really feel like this is going to work finally! I will put up any progress I’ve had every week. ♥ – Your siren☻ 2 weeks ago

I decided to make a website http://justmermaids.webs.com/ for anyone who wants to shift into a mermaid! It’s still under construction but I would love it if a lot of people would be members! 3 weeks ago

Aaaaaghhh. Sirens. Sirens. Sirens. SIRENS. That’s nearly all I’ve seen today. I’m so on the wall about mermaid typs but I’m pretty darn sure that a Siren is not a mermaid. This is from the website Theoi (literally the best Greek myth site EVER):
THE SEIRENES (or Sirens) were three sea nymphs who lured sailors to their death with a bewitching song. They were formerly handmaidens of the goddess Persephone. When the girl was secretly abducted by Haides, Demeter gave them the bodies of birds, and sent to assist in the search. They eventually gave up and settled on the flowery island of Anthemoessa. The Seirenes were later encountered by the Argonauts who passed by unharmed with the help of Orpheus, the poet drowing out their music with his song. Odysseus also sailed by, bound tightly to the mast, his men blocking their ears with wax. The Seirenes were so distressed to see a man hear their song and yet escape, that they threw themselves into the sea and drowned. The Seirenes were depicted as birds with either the heads, or the entire upper bodies, of women. In mosaic art they were depicted with just bird legs.

Totally not mermaids, right? So how in the world did this community turn Sirens into mermaids?? I really don’t know. Its actually kind of frustrating because then you get all these kids who say “OMAIGAWD I SANG AT SCHOOL TODAY AND ALL THE BOYS STARTED FAWNING OVER MEEEE” or “IM ALWAYS SINGING I CANT STOP” Gaah. I sing a lot too. Doesn’t make me a Siren. Honestly I wouldn’t want to be a Siren. Maybe the community started to think this because of the myths of mermaids drowning men. Its interesting but I actually don’t know where that came from besides the Sirens in Greek mythology. So perhaps it stemmed from there and that’s how mermaids turned into Sirens in the community?
Also there are the Harpy’s! Here is some more info from Theoi (it really is the best, you need to check it out):
THE HARPYIAI (or Harpies) were the spirits of sudden, sharp gusts of wind. They were known as the hounds of Zeus and were despatched by the god to snatch away (harpazô;) people and things from the earth. Sudden, mysterious dissappearances were often attributed to the Harpyiai. The Harpies were once sent by Zeus to plague King Phineus of Thrake as punishment for revealing the secrets of the gods. Whenever a plate of food was set before him, the Harpies would swoop down and snatch it away, befouling any scraps left behind. When the Argonauts came to visit, the winged Boreades gave chase, and pursued the Harpies to the Strophades Islands, where the goddess Iris commanded them to turn back and leave the storm-spirits unharmed. The Harpies were depicted as winged women, sometimes with ugly faces, or with the lower bodies of birds.

Also not mermaids! So I think this concludes my rant on the whole Siren/Harpy/Mermaid thing. As a Greek myth buff I really don’t like it. Not one bit. People can sit there all they want and talk about Sirens being a type of mermaid but there’s a lot of mythology against them. 4 weeks ago
Hello (: I was here very long ago to shift into a mermaid but then left. I came so very close to this goal but the time wasn’t right. Now it finally is and I know I can achieve this goal. I’m glad to be back here once again and I look forward to meeting new people (: 4 weeks ago
So I’m trying to get in the groove with the diet, but its difficult because we only go grocery shopping about once a week and we just went today. And I forgot to tell my dad to get salmon. And pretty much everything else. This is also hard to do because I am not going to tell my parents about this, so how do I say to them “I want to eat more ocean-y foods”? Basically, I can’t. Because they’ll ask “Why?” and I can’t answer that.
I wanted to get some seaweed because you can eat it as like a snack, or with just about any meal. I’ve had some and man is that stuff gooood. I’m also looking into trying more fish and sea vegetables. I looked at some recipes and my favorite kind of SV is wakame. It’s like seaweed, but better. Kind of sweet. I’m also mixing in more fruit into my diet, like bananas, apples, and grapes.
Again, any other people out there trying to shift into a mermaid/merman, please contact me. I’d like to get a sort of group together that could talk about their struggles and achievements, and just kind of talk to about this. I think its safe to say that most of the people with this goal don’t really have anyone to confide in. 4 weeks ago
What do you guys think about the mermaid diet? (The one where you eat
more leafy greens and fish and stuff) Is anyone actually seriously
following it, because to me it seems a little silly, almost? Like,
even if you eat fruit because you’re becoming a tropical mermaid, how
will you be able to access fruit in the ocean? And then if you eat grilled salmon with spices now, how will you eat a raw, live salmon in the ocean?
Maybe I’m being too cynical but I just wanna get my M-shift perfect. 4 weeks ago
So I’m working on the f shift and the m shift. When I try to f shift, I feel like I’m still in control of what I’m seeing, like I’m not meditating correctly and my subconscious isn’t showing me what I need to see. I see my mermaid form, but I feel as though I’m manipulating it, showing myself what I want to see. With m shifting I’m mainly trying to figure out how to supply my new diet and keep in the right mindset. I can’t really try to interact with people in my m shift because I have the flu right now (dun Dun DUNNN) and I’m contagious for the next 7 days and will not be allowed at school till I’m better. While I’m using my hours of freedom for meditating, f shifting, and m shifting, I’m also researching the p shift and trying to figure it out. I think if I can find the right mindset, it will make EVERYTHING waaaay easier. But I know I’m in for a long haul with many months ahead, so I’m not going to get my hopes up for instant results.
Today I was following some p shift instructions to get a feel for them and my legs started itching. It started on my right upper thigh, then appeared on my left knee and proceeded down to my upper left calf. I took a look and saw some spotted discoloration, like these spots were lighter than the rest of my leg. I kept going but the feeling faded and the spots were gone. It’s only been a few days since I’ve started this goal so I don’t know if those were actual spots (yay results) or if it was just wishful thinking.
If anyone is out there, still pursuing this goal, please contact me via this account. Maybe we can do this together and help each other. I have no one to confide in and I need a conversation about this.
