This week I’m with my family in Maine. We’ve been gathering on Deer Isle every August for decades. One of the things we love to do is go to Bar Harbor for the whale watching. Last year I didn’t go on the trip because I had work to do and they didn’t see any whales at all. Always a disappointment.
For the last few years I’ve been going on whale watches in Ventura Bay around the Channel Islands near Santa Barbara in California. The blue whales are amazing. in 2010 we saw 36 blue whales. They were everywhere around our boat. It was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life time. Blue whales are the largest mammals on the planet. Their heart is as big as a Volkswagon beetle car. There heart chakra energy is so strong it’s thrilling to feel.
Last year when I went blue whale watching in Ventura with friends – including Gary Renard and Cindy Lora – we didn’t see even one blue whale. I was disappointed. We saw about a thousand dolphins and many other beautiful sights but no whales. Gary still teases me that it was the best dolphin watch ever. Of course I recognized that I’d had a real attachment to the whales showing up and they didn’t.
I’ve learned after all of the whale watching experiences I’ve had is that your chances of having an excellent sighting are to connect with the whales in your mind and to call them. They’re so pure, they can easily hear, but don’t have any attachments!!
Yesterday, we went for our semi-annual whale watch in Bar Harbor. Hopeful, we headed out on the water. However, we were warned – the boat that had gone out in the morning hadn’t seen any whales. When we got out on the water I began to speak to the whales in my mind. I called to the whales and the Deva of the whales and I asked if we could have a miraculous whale heart healing. I could feel that there was at least one person on the boat who was really ready to have a hewing heart experience and who would benefit greatly. I asked on behalf of all of us. The whales love to share their heart energy and especially when it is welcomed and appreciated.
I could feel the whales were there. It wasn’t too long before we had our first sighting. As we got closer, we witnessed something I’d never seen before – it was so extraordinary – three huge humpback whales turned on their sides and flapping their fins. Over and over again they were slapping the water with their fins – minutes were going by and they were putting on quite a display for us. It was breathtaking. They kept doing the water slapping dance and then they were diving in tandem and simply resting on the surface, even turning and twisting.
It was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. I kept thanking them in my mind. I could feel the healing had happened and we were all lifted up.
Think of it – the whales, by their very presence, inspire and uplift us. We cannot help but feel our hearts leap in unison with theirs. What a blessing! Wouldn’t you like to be like a whale? To carry that big heart energy of pure love? You can! Let’s do it together. Big heart, big medicine!
I AM a creature of Love and light and that’s all I AM!
