Communication with Dolphins
How to create a healthy foundation for Communication
Speaking exclusively from my own perspective and experience, I firmly believe that what you live and experience as a child within Nature… or as a ‘Child of Nature’… ideally combined with your parents’ unconditional love - say until your 11th year of age - shapes your life, especially the Trust and Confidence you place in yourself and Life itself… Which are One.
As a child you do not yet have that feeling of ’separatedness’ that haunts most adults until the end of their lives. While you are on a curious and daring journey of self-discovery, it has much more to do with dreams and an excitement for the many wonders of Life and expanding those weird new limits you suddenly encounter - than egotism. Egotism is something that comes much later and that’s completely superficial in my eyes; it has nothing to do with a confident self-respecting person who has consciously developed strong character traits and… sticks to them.
It’s during those early years that you connect to your Knowing within, that you get ‘grounded’ and that you understand yourself as a tiny part of a grandiose whole where everything that happens - however tragic or cruel - is just a phase, a challenge, a learning curve along the path: YOU will survive… just as the ocean’s waves resound with an eternal rhythm of ebb and flood… the sun is rising in the morning and setting at dusk… Yin and Yang.
Communication with Nature
The silent and subconscious Communication with Nature while we are still remembering the purest of states… while we are not yet influenced and relentlessly ’spoilt’ by ‘civilization’ and its many limitations, make us understand Life as a perfect circle of constant transformation, of coming and going… A balance we need to adapt to, align ourselves with and… flow.
Communicating who we are
Whenever we’re ‘out of synch’… meaning not aligned… there’s dis-ease, there’s trouble and there’s pain and others will pick it up and react accordingly. Communication is a way of radiating, of touching the other on an immaterial level; the result is attraction or repulsion, instantly. Often it’s high time to get back to re-center and find that secret place of perfect harmony and balance within us from where our light can shine and merge with others… It’s there, always.
The question is how… how to re-connect? Perhaps start by asking yourself this…:
What is your Dream? What is your Purpose?
Noone else can tell you how and where to find it. You need to know - and you do. Always. And being honest and then working towards this important goal of realigning yourself with your life’s Purpose - never mind what it takes - is crucial, it’s extremely liberating… and it’s exciting!
What is your Dream… the path for you to find that inner balance… that childlike joy of being alive… again?
For some it may be visiting a place they fancy… or just going out and fish… or listening to music… or dance or taking the time to do something crazy they always wanted to do.
What is it you always wanted to do and that you keep ignoring instead of addressing it and… working towards its manifestation? There’s an important message within such a drive or wish or passion! And there’s lots of energy and joy… or a secret to reveal itself.
Maybe it needs going back in your past… back to when YOU were a child.
Swimming with Dolphins
Something I did as a child and that was nothing special at the time was swimming with wild dolphins. While we frolicked, dived and surfed in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean along Namibia’s coast they would just be there around us… like joining the Fun and, with hindsight and the knowledge I have today, our sacred guardians.
I know there was a time long ago when water was my element as well. I remember it. I can relive it at any time and it’s a sensation of ultimate bliss and happiness.

Connecting on Noordhoek Beach
There were many ‘encounters’ in different areas of the world, and there was a very special one not too long ago when, during some of my darkest moments, I took refuge on the rocks in the sea down here below Chapman’s Peak.
Suddenly, they were there. About 30 of them - all around, circling, splashing and twirling… a divine expression of Life in all its Abundance and a reminder of our Strength within… simply by being… One.
There are many incredible stories about Dolphins… and besides, we can learn from them. . .
Dolphin Communication Behavior
Did you ever observe how you breath? Unless you do Yoga or Meditation, you probably never thought about it… it’s just something that happens… to you, right? Automatically… unconsciously.
Not only can a dolphin shut down one half of the brain to rest… while being totally conscious with the other, dolphins are fully conscious of each breath they take… a highly advanced form of breathing referred to as “conscious connected breathing”.
And talking of sensitivity… dolphins possess a highly specialized sonar which enables them to scan the human body (for instance that of a pregnant woman) and sense strong emotional states - as happened to many with personal bereavements and as was my case at the time. These and other advanced facts have made sonar experts gasp. Besides… and although I am completely against any form of enclosure or ‘prison’ for these free spirits of the seas, dolphins are increasingly ‘used’ to heal human beings - and with magnificent results.
Reconnecting with Dolphins
A friend just returned from Mauritius and said: “I just lived your dream… and you were absolutely right: it was one of the most beautiful and intense… yet undescribable feelings of my life. You’ve got to go there. Don’t wait as long as I did.”
It was a birthday gift for her 70th birthday. . . and this formidable lady has travelled around the globe and seen the best places many times.
To me it was just another reminder… and I will go.
Just as YOU should follow this inner call and allow yourself to live Fulfillment, Happiness and… Peace. It will become part of you and the way you Communicate and… Give.
“Until he extends his circle of compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.”
