Family Holiday Adventure with Six Wild Dolphins scanning Ben at the same time! Bimini, Bahamas

by Joe Noonan on June 9, 2017

Wild dolphins continue to surprise me on a regular basis; they’re delightfully playful and spontaneous!

This time it was in how they responded to Ben, a 15 year old from California. Ben came with his sister and parents to join me for a family trip swimming with dolphins in Bimini, the Bahamas.

It was day four of the trip. We’d already had some great swims with the dolphins, and then we found a pod of six spotted dolphins that were in a very playful mood. We got in the water and they came over to check us out. They swam around, under and between us, making eye contact with everyone and saying hello.

They then returned to their play; jostling, chasing and rubbing up against each other, just a few feet from us.

Every few minutes they would again swim around, under and between us. I was having fun watching everyone in the family making great connections with the dolphins, and we were all relaxing in the magic of hanging out with a pod of wild dolphins in the open ocean. I love my work as a dolphin whisperer; bringing families to swim with the dolphins in a beautiful and relaxing setting.

I noticed that one of the dolphins split from the pod and swam over to Ben. Something about the deliberateness of its behavior got my attention, so I swam over to catch the interaction on film (watch the video at the bottom of this page)

The dolphin was clearly curious about Ben. She hovered right in front of him, scanning him with her sonar (you can see her sweeping her head back and forth as she’s scanning him). I watched as Ben turned to face her, and chuckled at how well he handled her attention. She continued to scan him, and he began turning his body. He looked a bit unsure of what to do next, and I can only imagine the thoughts going through his head. She continued to scan him, and he started to squirm. His movements struck me as funny and I couldn’t stop laughing. Despite his uncertainty, he did a marvelous job of staying relatively still as she continued her investigation.

Then a second dolphin swam over to see what was going on. This one also started scanning Ben, and then the rest of the pod came zooming over. They positioned themselves in a tight group and all of a sudden all of them at the same moment opened their mouths and together scanned Ben with their sonar.

Dolphins open their mouths to receive the bounce-back of their sonar more clearly, similar to us cupping our hands beside our ears. They were clearly very curious!!!

It was, for me, a magical moment… the focus and intensity of the dolphins was exhilarating, and Ben handled their attention with grace. One of the dolphins blew a big bubble from its blow hole, and the whole pod zoomed off, to continue their play.

We continued to swim with them as before for another hour before we got back on the boat and headed home. As we motored back to the island, we talked about what had happened with Ben and the dolphins, and all the questions came pouring out…

What happened? What did they see? Why did they all scan him together, at the same time?

There are lots of possible answers, but for me, the most wonderful part was being reminded yet again how little we know about our cetacean cousins and the mystery and magic of their world…

Here is the video, what do you think they were seeing?

I am currently reading a book called Our Dolphin Ancestors, mainly due to a psychic reading and awakening I received from other fellow Starseeds, who informed me of other incarnations I have had where I once lived several lifetimes as a dolphin. Although it may sound strange to most, I lived in Atlantis, worked with crystals, and originated from Mintaka in the Orion constellation and I also lived many lives in the Pleiadian system. I have strong Cherokee heritage in my bloodline and lived as a Shawman as well. All of this is very new to me but Dolphin and Native American study has been a strong part of my awakening along with the daily synchronicity that has been guiding me since 2004.

I’d recommend reading the book as Dolphins have the ability to DNA scan your previous incarnations but can also scan for disease and karmic balance.

Hope this sparks something in you to research on your own as this experience can be life changing as we have more genetic similarities between dolphins than we do with Apes, which is why we will never fine the missing link wandering down the Ape path to our evolution.

Enjoy and Namaste👍🏻🌴🐬
