Dolphin Power Animal Symbol Of Breath Of Life Love Balance And Community

Dolphin teaches us that when we live in tune with the patterns and rhythm of nature, we learn how to truly be in touch with, resonate and communicate with All That IS and how to share this sagacity with anyone interested. There are those that believe Dolphins are more intelligent than humans. Especially when it comes to love. They have large brains, superior intelligence and are often associated in mythical lore with higher forms of consciousness. Some believe they are far more evolved than we are, especially on a spiritual level. Some believe they are alien beings from a different dimension.

Dolphins are connected with the power of breath and with emotional release, which are also both deeply connected. One of the most important factors in spiritual growth is to give ourselves the freedom of full experiencing our feelings and emotions. Often negative emotions are suppressed as we don’t want to be a part of them, so we try to stay apart from them. Feelings of sadness, pain, anger, grief. We need to stop doing this, as this only lays the foundation for disagreeable outcomes. We need to feel our feelings, by suppressing these feelings, of course they DO NOT go away. They are still there, subconsciously, manifesting blocked energy with-in, and if these blocks aren’t removed, this can go on to physical imbalances, with-out. On top of this, by blocking these so called negative feelings, this can result in losing the quality of being able to feel at all, losing much of life’s joy. Becoming dead to the world.

Simply stated breathing is conversing with the outside world. When people feel that the outside world is a source of pain, they learn, very frequently at a young age, to constrict their breathing. The diaphragm is built to assist us in breathing and to feel deeply, but it becomes suppressed. When we learn to breathe deeply we can learn to feel deeply, in turn letting go of stifled feelings. One way of doing this is to copy the dolphins pattern of breathing, a superb tension reliever!. Dolphin breathes deeply, holds his breath underwater, then breathes out forcefully. Living in water is an important characteristic of Dolphin, as in many belief systems, including astrology, water is related to feeling and emotion.

If Dolphin swims into your life, he is asking you to relish water both physically and mentally, swimming freely and going along with your natural feelings. He is showing you how to enter the waters of life and then with breath and sound call forth what you most need or desire. Dolphins use a variety of whistles, grunts, clicks, and body postures to communicate. They have unique, personal whistles they give out. If they want to get the attention of another Dolphin, they give out their personal whistle. Sound is the creative life force and a big part of dolphins life, therefore this needs to be a part of your life. Communicate. With those around you and All That Is. Creating inner sounds creates outer manifestations. If Dolphin is your power animal, you may do well using your voice for healing or communicating, whether incorporating this into a job or just as a hobby or in day to day life with those nearest and dearest to you..

Dolphins have a wise, innocent, purity of being which reaches out to our inner nature. Follow their lead and open yourself to the energy of love, harmony and balance. Express your inner truth, be true to yourself. follow your inner joy. Dolphin is asking you to go back to your roots, to the depths of your being and rediscover the Love that you truly are.

Dolphins spend most of their day playing. Their life is lived in joyful harmony with each other and their world. Apparently they have learned the lesson that love is the most important factor in life. If dolphin is your power animal he may be there to teach you how to love yourself and your world more. A big part of Dolphins medicine is living in balanced, harmonious communities. They live in big groups of up to 100. Females will give birth to a single offspring, with several dolphins around her, helping with the birth, pulling the newborn out by its tail. They then protect him or her from any imminent danger. If a dolphin is hurt or ill, other dolphins will tend to them, lifting them to the surface to breathe.

Dolphins Wisdom Includes – Knowledge of the sea, change, patron of sailors, harmony, wisdom, balance, Communication skills, freedom, trust, understanding the power of rhythm in your life, use of breath to release intense emotions, water element magic, unselfishness. Dolphin reminds us to get out, play and most importantly, to breathe.

  1. I dreamed i was in the water with my grandaughter. She was pulled out to sea quickly, and a dolphin was tossing her around. Wen i got to her, she was sinking, and i brought her to surface and got her breathing again. That day, i was very straitforward with my new boss, who had been bullying me. Now, i want a dolphin tatoo. I dont know why, but i am associating myself w the dolphin somehow. Thank u for the article and insight

  2. There recently was a full moon in my 12th house of the water element. That night I received a particularly nasty piece of hate mail. I was feeling deeply insulted and very angry about it when my partner brought home two new friends he had recently made. At first I was upset that I wasn’t warned ahead of time to prepare the place and clean up fearing their judgement of my lack of housekeeping. But I joined them on the balcony, watched the moon rise and got to know them. It turned out they were both quite loving, affectionate people and not only did we have a great time together but I felt my heart open and my mood was lift significantly, feeling my faith in humanity restored.

    The next day my partner and I visited a nude beach, a wonderful way for us to connect. Being exposed to the open natural environment like that is an empowering feeling and we felt deeply connected to something fun and alive as we frolicked in the waves. There were dolphins cresting in twos beyond the surf and I was delighted when a couple splashed through the water and saw a tail extend above the surface.

    I had a shaman tell me that dolphin was a power animal of mine and this article helps me to understand that my feelings of emotional depth while embracing them instead of suppressing them is the right thing for me at this time. Especially since I feel I received a message that people can be trusted to connect with me in an open, loving way.

  3. This Scorpio new moon is potent. I am in a huge transition phase, with lots at stake and decisions need to be made. I feel pushed, pulled, at a standstill and frustrated by lack of movement, knowing that something needs to MOVE. I was trained as a rebirther many years ago, and dolphin was a constant companion to me at that time. A friend lent me a nice set of animal cards, mostly to be used with children as teaching tools. “Creature Teacher” – I pulled dolphin this evening, my question, “what do I need to know for my next steps?” Dolphin says, “I know where I am going”. I couldn’t find my Ted Andrews to refresh my memory further, so drifted to this lovely page, where I found the most excellent insights. The date at the bottom of the page noting when the post was made is my birthday, Feb 8! I think I am on the right track. :) All best.

  4. Dolphin is my highest totemic clan. It was given and told to me by a west coast elder. When you go to the ocean or the Great lakes, sit and listen. The waves will have a story to tell. This is Dolphin medicine. when the waves come to shore, they will lap the earth. Then they will advance back into the great waters. This is Dolphin message to Breath. Breath is life, life is all things, love is life, thus love is all things. Balance, is taught to us by Dolphin.
    The transition between the air realm and the water realm. The Dolphin lives in water, but breathes air. Balance is what humanity needs right now. we live in a male dominant world. not the shared being of the feminine and masculine. This is too, Dolphins lesson. Balance. Balance with the earth and nature, for humanity, balance for the mind of the two legged. Where there is separation, and not balance, nothing can be whole. this also is Dolphin. one last thing (there is so much more about Dolphin medicine but on parting); Dolphin teaches us about rhe sine wave. all existance is in waves.Youreceieve through waves from all types of media, light, sound, energy, all are transmitted through waves. Dolphin, however shows us this literally as he swims. He does this by swimming and imitating the wave. When Dolphin swims, they swim in the arc, of a wave going from water to air, to water. this is highly efficient. thus, We are taught one of the greatest lesson of life. that things always happen in a series of waves, never ending.

  5. Thank you for this beautiful explanation. I had a healing attunement recently and a dolphin came in for a very loving hug and some chatter. I have difficult breathing currently possibly steaming from holding in as a child. This was amazing to read and connect with more deeply.
