Centuries ago, people thought that the ocean was full of krakens, sea serpents and other monsters. They made sense of the mysterious ocean with these fantastic creatures. Many stories about the danger and adventure of the ocean also involve sirens as a half-fish, half-human creature. In mythology sirens are taking on many different appearances, origins, and personalities. They are best known for their beauty and hypnotic singing voices, which are said to lure unwary sailors to a watery grave – like in Homer’s Odyssey. The sea nymphs make us think of the femme fatale, who seduces by being different and slightly out of reach. But what attracts us? Great beauty? Power? Intelligence? If we ask ourselves what the most seductive element in another person is, it is often something else - it is the way this person understands us and recognizes our uniqueness and what we have to offer to the world. Seduction often lies in someone’s interest in us, in someone’s understanding of our dreams and desires. Our version of sirens is making others glow. They have a big heart, and they are killing their haters with kindness.
But how to become a siren? It is a long way to go. “The Lure” shows the transition of a woman to a siren. When your world spirals out of control, you can either drown or calm down and evolve. Becoming a siren, the woman is able to breathe underwater and explore the ocean’s deepest treasures. This is opening up a new world for her. For the first time, she is clear in her mind and knows what she wants. She sings her own song. She needs to take care of her own inner demons, before she can help other people. She is passionate, and wherever she goes, she inspires others. She is fiercely independent, incredibly focused, believes in herself and others around her. Her mind swims at a depth most would drown in. She is thoughtful of every soul, not only the ones whom she loves but also the ones, that accidentally enters her world. She dreams big. Nothing is impossible. Be a siren! It’s time to make waves!
