Dolphins have so much to teach us.
They are masters of family love, teamwork, cooperation and joy.
There is a myth that at a time when humanity is ready they will share their knowledge of frequencies and sound, for creating, healing and spiritual understanding.
The legend goes that 12 times in humanity’s history, the dolphins wanted to share their wisdom, though humanity wasn’t ready.
Now, in this Age of Aquarius, the 13th time, the Golden Dolphins can share their wisdom.
The book I’m highlighting today is Angels of the Sea: Sacred Dolphin Art of Atlantis, by Michele Gold (copyright 1996). It’s one of my favorite books of all time.
Over the years I have misplaced this book, forgotten that I had it, and I have always been so delighted to find it again. I love opening it randomly to a page and finding the beautiful art and wisdom that feeds my Soul, my thought for the day.
I have often wondered why I haven’t always had it at my side. The only answer I could come up with is sometimes I haven’t been in a joyous or fun enough mood to receive it. Today I want to share one of my favorite illustrations with you. It was on the original dust cover:
Michele had an incredible journey to be able to swim with wild Dolphins in the Bahamas.
Overcoming her fear of drowning and making the preparations of fitness and strength, swimming, treading water and needing to trust in the Dolphin Dreams she was having, she manifested her trip to the Bahamas. A beautiful story in itself, though that was just the beginning of her adventure to swim with and learn from pods of wild Atlantic Spotted, Spinner and Bottlenose dolphins.
If you aren’t going to have the opportunity to swim with Wild Dolphins anytime soon, I feel you will have an amazing adventure reading her book. The art, poetry by her love, Scott Huckabay, and wisdom from many other authors offer the reader a Divine Alchemy. Jumps for joy, beauty, love and inspiration– to mention a few of the transcendent qualities in this book.
From the preface: Dolphins are the messengers of love, Bodhisattvas of the ocean, transporters of myth, lucid dream connectors, ancient ancestors, beauty from all directions, teachers of all that should be known. Carriers of all stories, alchemists of energy, troubadours of wisdom, mystical mermaids… The angels of the Sea.
I have had the joy and almost indescribable experience of swimming with wild dolphins in San Diego, Coronado, San Clemente and Carmel, California. The encounters were brief, but I could feel their love, and kind of an electric energy as they grazed my leg while I was sitting on my surfboard. At other times, while I was body surfing or swimming, they jumped out of the water or swam by me and brought so many laughs and fun.
Wishing you joy,
