I wasn’t always a dolphin enthusiast. In fact, almost 10 years ago, I confess to rarely giving them a thought. I had other more primal and pressing hurdles to navigate, including going through a painful divorce. But Life, in It’s Infinite Wisdom, always has a larger plan for us than we can see for ourselves. I was leafing through a magazine a decade ago, when I saw a tiny black and white drawing of a dolphin and a goddess connecting in the sea. Something about it caught my eye. I called the number and before I had time to talk myself out of it, I was signing myself up to go swimming with some wild dolphins.
I had no idea.
We first saw the pod of large bottle nose dolphins approaching from the boat. Several of my fellow travelers and I slipped into the water, and before I knew it I was surrounded by dolphins making eye contact with me, and pinging me with their sonar. I felt their waves of energy move through the entire essence of my being. With stunning efficiently, they spun around me checking me out…huge gray dolphins, dwarfing me in surreal streams of bubbles with a power that left me feeling staggered, exhilarated, and full of life. I felt their souls – joyous, inquisitive, patient, humorous, and a million things more. I had no time to wonder what they thought of me. I could barely remember my name when it was all over. Their exquisite bodies efficiently pumping once before they disappeared off in the turquoise distance. I was hooked. My heart raced, my awareness distracted, I realized I needed to clear my snorkel and mask. When I emerged from the sea, dragged myself back aboard the boat, I could hardly speak. What does one say when they have come face to face with a being clearly more powerful than themselves?
Back home, when friends asked me how my adventure week was and why I looked so different, my only response was an incredulous, “this is what someone looks like when they forget their whole life!”
It’s been years since my first wild dolphin encounter, with many spectacular ones since. I have had the good fortune of swimming with wild dolphins along side a wonderful array of folks: elderly, international friends, generational families, children, couples, singles, folks healing from health or life challenges, autistic teens, and more. Once you have experienced wild, free dolphins in their natural elements, you are changed. They leave a message in your brain, not unlike intuitive knowing. They begin to visit you in dreams, or ‘pop in’ during the most mundane moments of our everyday lives. They have a knack for appearing when you least expect them, be it in cloud formations, meditation, the dream state or beyond–helping you to ground and elevate your consciousness all at once. They inspire and ignite a passion in those who are called: Whether is it to come for an occasional swim, or to renew and join with them one week each year, or to weave their energy permanently into your day-to-day living from that moment on. Swimming with wild, free dolphins IS nothing less than miraculous.
Of course, there is a plethora of ongoing research, theories and emerging evidence to support the esoteric changes dolphins create: sound, echo location, altered brain wave patterns, chakra clearing and more to list a few. It’s fascinating stuff that scientists are just beginning to scratch the surface of. But from a more personal perspective, I return and explore the dolphin-human journey quite regularly. I find it an essential requirement for living my life fully. It keeps the earthly cobwebs clear, and ignites the passions within me. It cleans the pathways that I use in my daily work as an internationally renown Psychic and Channel. If I go too long between dolphin experiences, I get… cranky. Swimming with wild, free, sentient beings reminds me of the expansion between the spaces. It reminds me how beautiful Earth is, of the vastness of The Universe, how to have fun, how not to take life so seriously…plus a million things more.
I didn’t know back then how much those wild dolphin adventures would change me. I couldn’t. That’s the way life is sometimes, you just show up, and it’s not until much later when the full breadth and depth of what’s happening hits you like a wave. I’ve been facilitating my own life changing retreats on both land and sea in the exquisite Bahamas, off the beaten path for a number of years now. The trips provide people the opportunity to rest their souls, and to learn about the expansion between the spaces that awaits us all. It’s a chance to unplug, and set aside the daily lists and expectations. We laugh, we cry, we giggle together. The dolphins keep us on track. It’s powerful, and miraculous.
A Wild Dolphin Energy Adventure is a chance to learn firsthand what all the fuss about dolphins is about. It’s a wonderful opportunity to share the magic that happens when unfolding to a simpler space and time in the tranquil Bahamas, engaging with wild sentient beings, in a safe and eco-conscious setting. It’s a chance to stir the ancient stardust we all have within.
