‘Let’s go swimming with the Dolphins’ my husband said. He had found a company on the internet that organised it. So off we set to the Azores, it was to be our last big family holiday.
I set an intention that the holiday would bring the family closer together and improve communication between us. I also had made up my mind to make a Dolphin Essence; I did not at that stage know how I was to achieve it but trusted I would know when the time came.
Pico was the Azorean island that we stayed upon. Stewart one of the holiday guides had said ‘you have to get out of your comfort zone to grow as a being’, well swimming in the Atlantic 1-2miles off shore with thousands of feet of water below you was certainly getting out of my comfort zone!
The sea was not cold, surprisingly warm considering how far out we were. The water was bright blue when you were in it. The sunlight reflected back from the depths in incredible white shafts of light. I eventually felt at home and did not want to get out. The sea was an experience in itself, the Dolphin encounters were something else.
The clicks of the Dolphins could be clearly heard in the water; often you could hear them before you saw them. When we were on board the boat the communications between the Dolphins could be heard.
On first seeing the Dolphin I could feel my heart chakra open, so much love poured out of me. Each time we went out and saw them the same thing happened. It was as if they were a catalyst to the core of emotion .I even woke in the night surrounded by love.
The people in the group, my husband and I included began to have vivid dreams even after the first Dolphin encounter, something at a deep level was changing. The people on the trip all began to have shining eyes and smiles were firmly fixed on all faces.
We saw and swam with five types of Dolphin, saw sperm whale and my husband and eldest daughter had an encounter with a blue whale.The encounters brought real excitement, delight and joy to us. We were at times surrounded by huge pods of Dolphins. I had an experience where I was in the water holding the hand of one of the guides [while I got my courage up!] and five common dolphin circled15 feet below us, they stayed for ages, we watching them and they were watching us.
The Dolphins displayed curiosity, abandoned joy, grace and ease of being. The mothers guided their curious offspring who wanted to be in the front of the boat, the mothers would steer them away. The pods spent time socialising .Groups of five or more would jump in perfect synchronicity out of the water. Others would jump so they could see what was going on. We recorded an incident where one Dolphin jumped five times out into the air. They know how to have unlimited fun!
The day the essence was made was an extremely powerful day. I was directed to put a glass of water on the front of the boat when we left harbour and there it stayed until we returned.
So we are all back home to the humdrum of life. I can definitely say we have all changed. My intention that the holiday would bring us closer together has certainly worked and communication and ease of being with one another has improved without a shadow of a doubt .I think we are all happier in ourselves and we have grown as people. To be able to re-experience the energy we just have to relive our encounters, watch our recordings or take the essence.

This essence was made on the 28.8.06, on a boat on the Atlantic Ocean off the island of Pico in the Azores. It is a combination of energies from, striped, spotted but mainly bottle-nosed dolphins. We as a group of people swam with the wild bottle-nosed dolphins and after that once we were back on board the whole pod of about 100 dolphins surrounded the boat.
The dolphins then proceeded to play, jump, do somersaults, ride the bow wave, come and look at us, especially the young who were then escorted away by their mothers. This continued for about an hour. It was a great privilege to have so much of their time and attention and it was very special. We all felt afterwards the incredible magical energy of the dolphins; it was as if we had been attuned to their energy. We felt very high! By the time we reached the harbour the essence had been made.
