Dolphin as a Spirit Animal | Animal Totems

Dolphin has always been in my life in one form or another. As a child, I used to try to imitate the sounds they make and I wanted to swim with them (as mermaids do of course haha!). I’ve always loved them and often spend time with them in meditation. If Dolphin has swam across your path lately, here are some messages it may have for you!

Sense of Adventure

Let your adventurous side come out to play! Travel! Dolphin also invites you to dive straight into the waves, beneath the surface, and bring light and joy to the shadowy depths. Explore with the adventurous spirit of a child! Dolphin could be sending you a sign to go on that trip or vacation you’ve been thinking about taking, to try something new and daring! Step out of your comfort zone and go and do what you haven’t before! Don’t let fear keep you anchored close to shore – explore the unknown caverns of the Seven Seas, the unfamiliar parts of your soul even. Dare to dream.

 

Intelligence

Dolphins are highly intelligent and very emotional creatures – just like us! They have a very high IQ and can be quite complicated animals in their interactions. Dolphin encourages you to continue learning. You don’t have to be in school or taking a class to do so. There are many ways you can continue your education in the great school of life. Read, write, speak. Share and realize your intelligence. Make informed and intelligent decisions. Don’t take anything at first glance.Think about what it is that you’re facing and use your brain power to help you find a way through it.

Companionship

Dolphins live in pods and look out for each other always. They nurse their young together, hunt together, play together, live together. Dolphins are all about community. Companionship is very important to the Dolphin. Their social interactions are quite colorful and complicated. In these relationships they experience anger, violence, love, sadness, and even pleasure – they are the only known creatures to have sex for more than just procreation but for pleasure as well! Intriguing huh? Dolphin encourages you to take a look at how you interact with those in your “pod”. How do you work together? How can teamwork help the good and growth of all? How can you better your interactions and relationships with those you care about? What can you do to be more helpful or involved in your community?

 

Communication and Vibration – Echolocation

Dolphins use echolocation to hunt and communicate with other Dolphins. Echolocation allows animals to use vibrations to communicate and is nature’s sonar, allowing the animal to see better. These sound waves bounce off of objects and comes back to the animal, giving them information to process such as the distance between them and the object or even what that particular object is! Dolphin encourages you to work on raising your vibration spiritually, and to learn about different types of energy and vibration. Read about energy work and it’s different modalities. Dolphin also encourages you to communicate freely with others. Work with your Throat Chakra. Dolphin asks you to take a look at if you are expressing yourself clearly and effectively.

Joy, Laughter, and Play

Jumping, diving, laughing, playing under the sea. Twisting, turning, whirling, and grinning – Dolphin is probably the most playful of all spirit animals. They are sweet, nurturing, gentle, and kind. They are optimistic and always looking for fun. They are such emotive creatures! Did you know that there’s a connection between Dolphins and Mermaids as well? How cool is that?! Dolphin encourages you to invite more joy, laughter, and play into your life. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Let loose, be silly, and don’t sweat the small stuff! Dolphin invites you to allow the spirit of your inner child to come out and dance, sing, and be free! Give yourself permission to do so.

 

Have you seen playful Dolphin jumping over the waves on your path? Has it invited you to swim with the Mermaids? I’d love to hear your experiences and thoughts on this intelligent creature!
