Originally a kind of sea urchin, sand dollars have a mythic history. Some believe they symbolize God’s presence on creation; five doves are said to reside within their dusty white shell – the five angels that sang to the wise men on Christ’s birth. Others think they are coins, weathered over time, dropped by the people of Atlantis – or tokens forgotten by mermaids.
Sand dollars flow with the ocean. We can learn a thing or two by watching them move. Carried whichever way the tide pleases, the sand dollar teaches us to welcome change, to accept shifting phases in life. We must trust the intricate process; drift through uncertainty, with faith that we’ll wash ashore.
