Dolphins and Whales: Gateways to Healing

By: Keith Varnum

On a cold, dark, overcast day thirty years ago, a ray of warmth
and light shown into my world from a most unexpected source-the
eye of a giant Humpback whale. In my young twenties and already
old with disillusionment at the state of the world, I was trying
to escape my despair by spending an afternoon at sea on a small
boat. Without much hope of success, I had been asking whoever
might be listening for a sign of something worth living for,
some indication that there was light at the end of the tunnel of
this struggle of a life I had been enduring. That afternoon, my
prayers were answered by none less than the largest living
creature on the face of the earth.

Eye to Eye with a Whale

Lying despondent on the deck of the boat, disappearing into my
mental malaise, I suddenly found myself staring into the eye of
a being the size of a large office building. My gaze was locked
into the penetrating gaze of this mammoth animal who had
surfaced from the depths just enough to peer over the bow of my
boat right into my face. Our eyes were only three feet apart.
There was no distance between our hearts. Our souls were already
one. I immediately dissolved into the depths of this being's
essence… a vast inner sea of spacious emptiness, allowing
anything and everything, embracing all that I was and so much
more than I was even aware of then. My mind went silent. My
inner turmoil disappeared. I entered into a sanctuary of
profound, gentle union with my own self in the form of a huge
ocean creature.

Heart to Heart

In a very real sense, I have never left that sanctuary. I have
carried with me to this day that feeling of deep, complete
acceptance that I received from the whale. That taste of my true
natural state has inspired me ever since to search for ways to
incorporate that knowing into every aspect of my life and being.

Our Kindred Spirits of the Sea

The welcoming embrace of the whale for me that afternoon was not
an isolated incident. More and more often in the last twenty
years around the world, whales and dolphins have been initiating
contact with humans. As dolphin research expert, Timothy Wyllie,
points out, "There's an awful lot of water out there… the
dolphins and whales don't have to interact with us if they don't
want to."

My dramatic experience of wholeness and expanded awareness being
with the whale was also not uncommon. Most people report
regaining a natural, healthy state by being in the presence of
dolphins and whales and being enveloped by the transformative
emanations from these benevolent creatures. Cetaceans, dolphins
and whales, are constantly connected with the universal
vibrations coming from Source. Because they emit these
vibrations abundantly and freely, dolphins and whales have a
profound impact on humans in their vicinity. In their presence,
people experience vast increases in energy, vitality and
awareness on all levels, physical, emotional and spiritual.

Awake and Aware

Dolphins and whales are intelligent friends who live by
expressing the qualities we value--harmony, joyfulness, good
health, beauty, wisdom, supple movement, grace and respect for
mutuality and freedom. Dolphins and whales are at One with
nature and the universe.

They live in a state of love that
suspends judgment, anger and retaliation. Their exuberant
celebration of life is a call to humanity to explore its
collective potential and individual capacity for deeper
compassion, more authentic self-expression and more profound
spiritual unfoldment.

Expanding Our World

In addition to the spirit of cooperation, peace, simplicity and
love that they demonstrate, dolphins and whales teach their
human friends to expand their mind, release limiting thoughts
and feelings, and open to the wondrous world of the unknown that
they are gladly revealing. Timothy Wyllie shares that "I love
being with the dolphins, but they are challenging companions.
They teach me how to let go… how to surrender to my own fear…
how to reach the light by going through to the other side."

Dolphin and whale interaction helps people go beyond our old
limiting social and cultural beliefs and assists us to realize
that we're capable of a lot more than we think we are. Their
ability to use more of their physical, sensory and intelligence
potentials reminds us that we can do use more of ours. For
instance, humans use only a very small portion of their brain
capacity. Dolphins and whales encourage people to use more of
their brain by using tonal language to stimulate their brain
cells, as well as the cells of the rest of their body.

Multi-dimensional Playmates

Playing with these wondrous creatures, people find they leave
behind the linear belief system of three dimensional time and
space, entering an altered state in which there are no time
constraints and everything occurs simultaneously. Cetaceans
naturally play in multiple dimensions. They are simultaneously
experiencing life in the ocean and life in a holographic,
vibrational world of multi-level subtle realities in the fourth
and fifth dimensions. Swimming with dolphins and whales in their
multi-dimensional universe, people easily access empowering
childhood memories, enlightening past lives and exciting visions
of their future.

The cetaceans serve as practical and inspirational examples to
humans of the possibilities existing beyond limited human belief
systems. What these advanced sea inhabitants are doing is
exactly what humans will be doing in the near future in this
next century. Humans have the same physiological and mental
capabilities to do likewise. In their presence, people connect
with a direct knowing of their multi-dimensional nature and
their greater identity as galactic, cosmic voyagers. Merging
with dolphin/whale awareness, people open to an appreciation of
our human role as conscious co-creators with other species in
the evolution of the Cosmos.

Communication by Direct Transmission

Cetaceans communicate in a way that requires an entirely
different mind set than the human cognitive-thinking model.
Cetacean brains are larger and more complex than humans. The
largest brains on the planet are those of the whales. Rather
than words and sentences, dolphins and whales communicate
through vibration, through sonar and synchronized movement,
through acoustic images, sounds, feelings and group-energy
fields. A lot of their sounds are beyond our ability to hear,
yet nevertheless, they still affect our bodies and vibration.

They use a system of echo-location, acoustic imagery. The
returning of sound vibrational signals give a three-dimensional
picture, which in some ways is more sophisticated than human
vision. For example, if a dolphin encounters a sunken ship under
the water and wants to share that discovery with another dolphin,
the dolphin will re-create, and send to the other dolphin, the
exact same vibrational patterns it receives back from the sunken
ship. The friend will experience the exact same three-
dimensional picture that the first dolphin experienced directly
returning from the ship. Thus, dolphins communicate through
sharing direct experience, rather than through a symbol (word)
to attempt to represent their direct experience, as humans do.

Vibration as Art and Heart

Dolphins and whales feel vibrations, create holographic works of
art all around them, and then play in them. Because their sound
waves actually penetrate objects, dolphins and whales are
believed to be able to "see through" physical objects with their
sonar in the manner of an x-ray. Dolphins check out people with
their sonar and strategically apply their energies to the areas
in need of healing. Dolphin behavior and communications can
assist humans to develop new and more effective healing and
living modalities for themselves and the planet. The success of
dolphin and whale society is based on certain vibrational
frequencies, which we label as love. As people are able to
create that frequency in their bodies by contact with cetaceans,
they naturally draw to themselves more of the same vibration,
great happiness, as well as people and things already existing
in that frequency. After swimming with dolphiins and whales,
many people go home with the decision to change their lifestyle
into a way of living that will support and promote that same
vibrational feeling.

These cetaceans operate out of a different paradigm than the
human race. They have not been raised in a culture that requires
primarily linear, rational, one-dimensional thinking. They
employ other ways of accessing valuable information about their
world. Cetaceans work with the electromagnetic grids of the
planet, using these underwater pathways for worldwide navigation
and to send messages for thousands of miles beneath the sea.
Humans can learn from the ways of the dolphins and whales and
enrich human life. As people and cetaceans swim into the future
together, they can co-create a world filled with peace and
fulfillment, communities around the world living in harmony and
once again able to be in constant contact with each other
through telepathic and vibrational means.

Bringers of Our Future

As people learn to merge their individual energy fields and
atomic structure with the harmonic frequencies of the dolphin
and whale sounds and sonar, they meet and master new aspects of
human consciousness and life force. As the cetaceans teach, it
is by activating and aligning their golden, spiraling, inner
spheres of energy with the Universal Rhythms of Life that allows
humans to traverse new realms of consciousness, well being and
cooperation with each other and all forms of life.

When people go into the water and swim with the dolphins and
whales, they are never the same again. They can not go back to
their old way of life. People remember that they are meant to
have more. They realize life is intended to be lived more deeply,
fullyFeature Articles, passionately and joyously.

Living simply doesn't mean living without. It means living with
a certain vibrational frequency that attracts everything that's
vibrating in that same frequency. It's the message of the
dolphins and whales… and of all great masters. And it really
works!
