Bimini – 2011- Swimming with wild Dolphins – Part One

My trip to Bimini this summer was beyond amazing. Since we find ourselves in a time warp (for lack of a better term) it seems to me like I was there yesterday. This is due to the planetary shift. Time for many of us doesn’t feel linear. So my memories of this fantastic adventure seem like they happened yesterday. I often find myself there again, recalling moments of amazement, laughter, and warmth.

My favorite time of the day is sunrise. I wake often just before the light dawns a new day and enjoy the last moments of darkness turning to light. The other morning I sat on my deck under a half moon and watched it until the sunrise made it was too bright to see. But one thing I had never experienced was a sunrise out of the ocean. It was on my bucket list. The first morning we were out at sea, I awoke just before dawn and scrambled up to the top deck of the boat, awaiting my first sunrise – which kinda felt like a sunset in reverse. Growing up on the Oregon coast, I’ve seen many sunsets, but this was nature’s beauty on a whole new level. This would become a morning tradition for the whole boat.
Part_one_a This was one of the many spectacular sunrises we experienced each morning. I was thrilled the first morning when a flying fish, jumped quietly out of the water and straight towards me, in the golden light that shown across the ocean.
Before I left for Bimini, I was told by a wise woman here that this trip to would be a “transformational trip” for me. And in so many ways, she was right. I learned more about communicating with humans on the other side of the veil, my animal communication has become more detailed, and I find that I now get information as my clients are asking their questions. As if information is coming to me all-at-once. There have been personal transformations too. I was surprised as my marriage almost crumbled, only to be turned into a place of happiness and contentment That’s transformation.

On the second day, we put on our gear for the water and went in to play around. The dolphins weren’t around yet, but a little practice always helps. Much giggling ensued as we tried to acclimate to our snorkels in the water. I swam off to be alone for a bit, and was surprised when I heard the familiar voices of my Atlantean family. I recognized my mother’s voice and the voice of my Atlantean husband. They told me that they were thrilled I had returned and had much to tell me about what is currently happening on the planet. I’ll write more about this when I describe our day on the Bimini road.

I was told by a wise woman that my trip to Bimini would be “transformational” for me.

The weird thing was, I knew them and wasn’t freaked at all. I recognized their voices, felt their love, and knew why I’m so drawn to the area around the Bahamas and the dolphins. In a previous life – I lived on the continent of Atlantis.

This would be one of many times they’d speak to me. Always in the water and I totally understood what they were telling me. I’ve had many visions of myself with a tall man, walking along a stone road, in a very warm climate. On our left is the ocean. On our right a small village with a large temple in the center. I know now: this is Atlantis.

Not all my experiences were this “jaw dropping”. There were mostly extended moments of joy, playing with the dolphins, and having a lot of fun with new friends. Each day was perfect in its own way. The weather could not have been nicer, the water was almost TOO warm, and every day brought new surprises for all of us.

Ever try and to snorkel and laugh at the same time? Not easy. But we adapted and I know I swallowed a lot of water. And when the dolphins weren’t around, we’d laze around the boat in the afternoons. We would hang in the warm evening air enjoying the moonlight. All of this for me make the Bahamas feels like “home.”

We spent an entire day with a dolphin family. A mama and her two youngsters were among them and were around me a lot of that day. (Part Two to come). We snorkeled a coral reef, something that was new to me. We enjoyed a full moon together. We even went out to the gulf stream and swam where the ocean floor was literally miles below us. It was all amazing and it’s all still here, etched forever in my memory. For when I can’t sleep, feel anxious, or bored – I take myself back to the Indigo and watch the sunrise on another day in paradise.



Swimming with the dolphins again

268195_10150227833917123_235748067122_7506993_410045_n In just one week, I’ll board a plane to head back the Bahamas to swim with the dolphins again. My heart soars at the very idea of being aboard Indigo, the boat I’ll live aboard, that will take us out into a sea of wonder. I live with the ocean at my front door, but it is very different from this ocean and all the wonders it holds. Three years ago I boarded the boat on an adventure with Dolphin Expeditions. All your needs are catered to, and all one needs to do is simply sit back, relax, and enjoy all that the dolphins have to offer.

As an animal communicator, this is very special. For the dolphins invoke in me emotions I didn’t know were there. Underneath, hiding in a special place in my heart, these creatures can bring out feelings of love, compassion, and knowing. I know my experience isn’t unique, I witnessed many people emerging from the water in tears, overwhelmed by their own encounters. Days, months, years after my return, I will carry the deep love and knowledge the dolphins provide. I will have a deeper understanding for all animals, and the information they provide me. This creates a deeper understanding with my animal clients. And it’s due to the dolphins.

Even now as I run through the check list of all last minute details of leaving home for awhile, I am receiving information from animals. They are indicating to me their wishes, totally unsolicited. All I need to do now is sit in my morning meditation. As easily as hearing the voice of an old friend on the other end of the phone, animals are coming forward and telling me their instructions for return to loved ones, or perhaps a simple request for a check in with their bodies so their humans can know how to help them. This is unusual since I’m not initiating these chats. And I chalk it up to the dolphin’s wisdom as well as the times we find ourselves living in. For as any good psychic can tell you – these are interesting times indeed.

Underneath, hiding in a special place in my heart, these creatures can bring out feelings of love, compassion, and knowing.

So, with a bag lightly packed, I will again visit the dolphins with an open mind and open heart to see what they have to share with me. As I recall last visit, I was so overwhelmed with information that was foreign to me, I thought I’d lost the message. But upon returning home I found it was all there for the taking. This time I feel as if I know more what to expect. This time I’ll be prepared for the onslaught of unusual information and feelings these creatures from beyond share. And this time, I may have a linear thought about the whole adventure, but I doubt it. For once again, I’m sure the dolphins are in charge, and I simply need to let go, and try and remember that. Words aren’t enough to describe the emotions that come with this experience. I”ll just sit back and enjoy what lies ahead.

Swimming with the Dolphins

P1120880In 2008, I went on an adventure that turned out to be an “adventure of a lifetime.” I went to the Bahamas and swam with the dolphins on a eco-trip called Dolphin Expeditions.  It was facilitated by a teacher of mine, Penelope Smith, who has taught me many things and ways of communicating with animals. Little did I know, what happened that week would stay with me for the next three years.

I’d been drawn to swim with wild dolphins for years before I actually went. I wear a silver dolphin charm on a chain around my neck. I read about the dolphins and their special families whenever I find something new and exciting.  Before this trip, I had only “met” one dolphin who was in captivity. But the light in her eyes stayed with me. Penelope Smith, who is a world renowned animal communicator offered this journey, but I was one of two animal communicators in a group of twelve.  Two of us may have experienced animal communication before, but most everyone in the group received a special message from the dolphins.

And when I returned home, the first question everyone asked me was “what did the dolphins say to you?” Well, they didn’t really say anything. The experience of being in the water with them was so overwhelming that there was no chit-chat. I was in their world and they gave me plenty.

It’s funny to me when people tell me, (the one who was there) that “dolphins are aggressive and dangerous”. Because my experience was exactly the opposite. I have never been surrounded by so much love in my life.P1120818 The dolphins I encountered were curious as to who we were But there was never any fear. I was “checked out” carefully by several dolphins and felt and heard their “clicking” sounds as they swam around me. I felt a surge of light pass right through me – a small electric current. We were urged to swim with our arms at our sides, using only our fins to guide us through the water. The more still and “open” we were, the more the dolphins were likely to come to us. And it worked. Only sometimes one of the group would squeal with delight. Human and dolphin alike. It was over-the-top, amazing. The crew was even thrilled to encounter the dolphins and this is what they do for weeks all year long.

I’m not very good at guarding myself from intense energy.  I am very open and don’t always protect myself from the emotions and feelings of others. We all have energy that we emit and receive. Animals and humans. Some of us are more aware of it than others. I don’t do well in large crowds and it’s been theorized that since I’m psychic I pick up on all the energy flying around me: anxiety, stress, joy, fear, happiness, love – the list is endless. You can find all of these in any given group in any given place. I take it all in and don’t sort it out very well, but I’m learning. It has enabled me to learn and experience amazing things – like the dolphins. And it’s made me nuts – like shopping just before a holiday in a grocery store. I feel it all. Living in a rural area helps me to cope with the scant humans around me. I do much better with animals. And I did really well with dolphins.

We stayed 4 nights on the boat. We woke to the light blue waters of the ocean and swam in the water just after breakfast. We swam almost everyday with the dolphins and the experience changed me. Not one day has passed since then that I don’t find myself, eyes closed, remembering their special love and message. It wasn’t a verbal message, but a “knowing” that anyone who has swam with wild dolphins will identify with. They are definitely from another place than humans. They embody the love we all strive for. And their light is blinding.

And this may be the year I return. I can feel it. I want to go back on the same boat and visit the same dolphin family I met three years ago. And I want to go with the friend I met on the boat. We met the first day and never stopped talking about our experience. We talk a few times a week by phone now since we’re separated by a few thousand miles. I am smiling as I write this because I am almost sure that this is the year we will meet again and in our favorite place. I have a feeling the dolphins we met will remember us. Each night as I fall into sleep, I call them to me and say good night. And each night I dream of being back with them again.
