Renown for their majestic displays of underwater movement and above water jumps and flips, the dolphin reminds us to incorporate play and fun into every moment of our lives, even when doing essential tasks.
Dolphins are social beings who rely on their pod for hunting and safety. Dolphin calves do not reach sexual maturity until at least age 5, giving them many years to learn from their mothers and develop playful, child-like habits that will stay with them into adulthood. They communicate using their unique whistling sounds to locate each other and coordinate their hunting plans.
Dolphins draw out our inner child and allow them the opportunity to frolic and play with innocence and a keen sense of wonder.
They reflect in us our deep desires to return back to our playful childhood memories and how much we loved to do things that light us up, choosing passion, freedom, curiosity and connection over the restraints of responsibility and duty. They are equally dedicated to learning through exploration and experience as they are observing and mimicking typical behaviour.
If Dolphin has entered your field recently, the key questions to ask yourself what it means specific to you are:
1. What was I doing / thinking / feeling at the time of the encounter?
2. How did seeing this messenger make me feel?
3. What was the animal doing and what was significant about it specifically?
4. Can you see how any of these things relate to the meaning above?
What is your own mythic tale you can weave to get your own beautiful message from this guide?
Journal and contemplate with these prompts to uncover your own personalised meaning and symbolism.
