Are YOU a Dolphin Whisperer? (Do you speak the language of the heart?)

by Joe Noonan on October 13, 2011

Anyone who feels a connection to dolphins is a potential ‘dolphin whisperer’. The word ‘whisperer’ implies being able to communicate in a quieter, more subtle way. To me, that subtle way is the language of the heart.

I see it all the time. Most often with children, for no one has told them they can’t talk with dolphins. They jump up and down with excitement when we spot the dolphins, and scramble to the bow of the boat to get as close to them as possible. (We always follow the dolphins from the boat for a while, to determine if they’re in a sleeping/traveling/interacting mode, before we get in the water with them.)

I’m always encouraging people to ‘let their love flow’ when we’re with the dolphins, for the dolphins love it. The people who show their excitement the most typically get the most attention from them. I’ve learned to take my own advice, and am quick to hoot and holler when the dolphins put on a show for us.

Its a joy to watch someone let their love go overboard with the dolphins. I once had a man on the boat who had no desire to get in the water. He was there to support a family member, and was a little aloof from the whole ‘dolphin thing’. But over the course of a few days, he fell in love with the dolphins from the boat. One day we had a mother and baby dolphin riding the bow and making ongoing eye contact with him. He slowly got closer and closer to them, until he was laying down on the deck with his head sticking over the bow, only a foot and a half away from them. The closer he got, the closer they got, until there was barely any space between them.

He rode like this for thirty minutes, and his demeanor was changed by the end of the day. He shared that his interaction with the dolphins was profound. Even though it was his first time meeting the dolphins, because of how he opened his heart to them and the connection that resulted, he fits my definition of a dolphin whisperer.

Interspecies communication is both normal and natural and is happening all the time. We are all interspecies communicators, whether we know it or not.

Clients call me a ‘dolphin whisperer’ because of how the dolphins interact with me and my ability to anticipate their behavior. My relationship with the dolphins is based on intuition, experience and knowing the personalities of the dolphins i swim with. From my perspective, anyone who feels a strong connection with the dolphins is at the very least a beginner dolphin whisperer.

You can talk with the dolphins any time you want

We are all telepathic; people, animals, plants, etc… Its just that dolphins have always know it and most people have forgotten it.

As your fellow Dolphin Whisperer friends will tell you, its fun to communicate with the dolphins. You can connect with them anytime and anywhere, and you can get excited knowing that they feel your love! I love communicating with them before I go to sleep, or if I wake up in the middle of the night.

Strengthen your Dolphin Whisperer muscles

Like our arm or leg muscles, our heart-to-heart communication muscles get stronger every time we use them. Find a photo of a dolphin you feel a connection with and start communicating with them on the heart level. (We have lots of photos of dolphins that you can connect with).

Extend your Whisperer abilities

You are unlimited in who and what you communicate with. George Washington Carver, the man who discovered over a hundred uses for the peanut, said “I just ask the plants and they tell me.” Quantum physicists now say what sages of old have always told us; you can communicate with anyone and anything you want! (The scientist who won a Nobel Prize for her discoveries about the genetic makeup of corn said she asked them to reveal their secrets).

Thanks for reading my blog post. If you’ve made it this far, I imagine that you too feel a connection to the dolphins. That makes you at the very least a student dolphin whisperer. 🙂

I had the most amazing experience while in the Seychelles, we came across a group of Dolphins, about 20, including two babies, I made a continual calling sound and they repeatedly came back to our boat. Four of us got into the water and swam with them for about an hour. We had snorkelling gear so could see them and literally swam WITH them, In the deep sea… It was amazing, they came within a meter from us. Now everybody say it was a stupid thing to do, as they are dangerous… I just can not believe that!!

Hi Hanlie!

What a beautiful story! Its always important to err on the side of caution and super respect when dealing with wild dolphins, particularly ones we are unfamiliar with, and it is rare for them to be aggressive (unless people start grabbing at them or ignoring their warning signs; jaw slaps, bubble bursts, tail slaps, etc). Your encounter sounds absolutely magical, as most encounters are when they choose to swim with us!
