In 1988 I arrived in Hawaii, looking for a quiet place near the water
to meet with clients seeking spiritual counseling and to compile the
messages of the dolphins and whales. Many people had become
interested in dolphins and I looked forward to sharing my stories
with them. I had received a dreamtime message that I would meet some
friendly extraterrestrials in Hawaii, not realizing that it was the
ocean-inhabiting dolphins and whales who were contacting me.
As I entered the water tentatively, the dolphins welcomed me.
Previously I swam while wearing a life jacket. Now I began learning
from them, how to swim and dive. Spending every day in the bay with
the dolphins, my life was filled with contentment. I felt healthy,
close to nature, athletic and full of curiosity about this special
dolphin connection. As I shared my joy in the ocean with close
friends and clients, more and more people came to meet the dolphins
and then began to move to this island to be close to them.
Today we all live in many homes near the dolphin lagoon, close to
each other. In the mornings we swim togethermaking a pod of people
who mingle with the pods of dolphins. It is a very fulfilling and
joyful lifestyle. Of course we have some life challenges we face, due
to the changes we experience in this new way of life, but it is very
productive to go through these changes with a supportive family of
like-minded people. And so we meditate together, work together,
assisting each other with projects including workshops, cooking,
cleaning, carpentry, gardening, guest transportation, accommodations,
child care, counseling, massage, emotional, spiritual and financial
support and in many other ways, keeping the messages of the dolphins
close to our hearts, emulating them as a pod in community.
In addition to the spirit of cooperation, peace, simplicity and love
that the dolphins demonstrate, the dolphins have taught us to expand
our mind, release limiting thoughts and open to the wondrous world of
the unknown that they are gladly revealing to us. As we enter their
refined fields of consciousness, we travel with them into the
Universe deep within us. Leaving the linear belief systems of three
dimensional time and space, we easily access our childhood, our past
lives and our future. Beyond the third dimension, there are no time
constraints and everything is occurring simultaneously. As we enter
these "future" worlds together, we see a world that is filled with
Peace and Fulfillment. We see our community and communities all
around the world, living in harmony, able to use once again expanded
non-local consciousness to be in contact with each other.. Does it
sound fantastic? It isn't. It is only natural. The cetaceans live
that way and we have the same physiological and mental capabilities
to do likewise.
Our latest research involves merging our individual energy fields and
our atomic structure with the harmonic frequencies of dolphin and
whale sounds and sonar. Learning to make this simple shift, we meet
many new aspects of our consciousness and our soul or life force. As
the dolphins have taught us, it is by activating our golden,
spiraling sphere of energy to create a field that aligns with the
Universal rhythms that allows us to traverse many realms and interact
with places and people outside of our present, known reality.
We learn the wisdom of the ancients such as the Mayans, the
Atlanteans, the Lemurians, and the interstellar beings regarding
visiting many loving civilizations and using the natural cycles of
the stars and planets to do so.
In our community, we are becoming familiar with these abilities and
exploring them with enthusiasm and excitement. There are fascinating
worlds of great Beauty and inspiration that exist in nearby realms.
There we meet many other people who are also adept at soul travel, bi-
locating and remote sensing. We convene there, converse with each
other, and return to review what we have experienced. It is a course
in higher education. These advanced skills are explained more fully
in my books and in the seminars listed on this web site.
with Joan Ocean, M.S.
by Paula Peterson
Regarded as an authority on the subject of dolphin and whale
communication, Joan Ocean developed the remarkable methodologies for
this pioneering work and authored two books translated into four
languages: Dolphin Connection and Dolphins into the Future. For
nearly two decades, Joan has led thousands the world over into the
waters to swim and communicate with the dolphins; to discover the
wondrous, often mystical world of these vastly intelligent beings
with abilities that continue to amaze and baffle us all.
Paula: How did your work with dolphins and whales begin?
Joan: It was surprise to me! I didn't even know how to swim when I
first met the dolphins. It was the early '80s, and people were not as
aware of dolphins back then. The dolphins came to me for the first
time while I was in meditation, with a beautiful message of having
much to share with humanity. The energy felt very good. But I was a
little embarrassed to tell anyone that I was channeling dolphins
instead of some great Ascended Master. So I kept it secret.
I wondered how I could work with dolphins and whales when I couldn't
Later, I released the dolphins' message to a friend, who printed it
in his newsletter, which circulated throughout the United States.
There was a great response to the article. Many people wrote to me
making statements like, "I felt all along that one could communicate
with dolphins. Thank you for sharing that information." This
encouraged me to talk more openly about my experience and to continue
to have more experiences.
Then, as fate would have it, I was invited on a trip to the Amazon
River in Peru to meet the river dolphins. Since I already had contact
with them in meditation, I agreed right away.
It was beautiful. I still didn't know how to swim, but I had a
lifejacket on, and the water was quite calm, so I felt okay with it.
After that, I began traveling to other countries, sharing stories
about my experiences with the dolphins. That is how it began.
Paula: Did you also begin having experiences with the whales at that
Joan: I think the whales affected my vibrational frequency right in
the beginning. Around the same time of my first dolphin meditation, I
met Jean-Luc Bozzoli, an incredible visionary and dolphin artist
whose art touched me right to the heart. We began traveling together
I would tell stories about dolphins, and he would show his art. As a
result, people invited us to meet the dolphins in different countries.
One time, we were involved with some gentle, environmentally aware
people in a month-long project off the coast of British Columbia,
Canada. It was wonderful. We lived in tents, and we sat around the
fire at night with the others on this deserted island. There were
eagles and orcas it was a beautiful, uninhabited place.
One day, we were standing on the shore when a California gray whale
came in really close. He seemed to be rolling on the pebbles beneath
the water, scratching his back and removing barnacles. He came in
closer, at an angle that allowed eye contact. I looked into that eye,
and as he returned my gaze, I felt all this love and wisdom coming to
me in vibrational waves so much of it! I felt as though he knew and
It was very powerful. There came a point where I couldn't take any
more of those waves of love I thought that I might melt or
disappear. The minute I had that thought, the whale stopped sending
the vibrational waves. It was then that I realized that whales could
communicate with us. He had received my communication and knew to
stop sending those waves of love.
My interest from then on has always been in communicating with
dolphins and whales. I feel they have messages and wisdom to share,
and I want to be the facilitator of this sharing.
Paula: The Australian aborigines and other indigenous tribes consider
it important when they dream about dolphins. Besides meeting dolphins
in meditation, have you had dreams of them?
Joan: Yes. Even before going to the Amazon, I dreamed of pink
dolphins, having no idea that there even was such a thing. I remember
waking up from the dream thinking, "Now wasn't that a pleasant dream
to see pink dolphins."
It's interesting that in the beginning, before I met the dolphins, I
dreamed about them more often than I do today. Now I spend time with
them in the water day after day. They're always with me. So I don't
have specific dreams of dolphins as much now as before. Somehow, our
fields of energy have merged in such a way that I've become a part of
them it feels like that to me.
Paula: How has your work or should I say play with dolphins and
whales changed your life?
Joan: Oh, in every way. In observing them and being with them so
much, I wanted to live the way they do, very simply. I didn't want to
have all these possessions and responsibilities, things to take care
of. I completely lost interest in the secular life, the nine-to-five
job or anything like it. I sold everything. I had decided to move to
wherever the dolphins were, to live with them, and to see what would
happen. I trusted that everything would fall into place and that I
would have the abundance necessary to support that lifestyle.
And it really worked well it was so simple. There was some concern
from others. Yet the worse that could happen, I thought, if it didn't
work out, was that I would just go back to my old lifestyle. So I
decided to give it a try, to follow my heart and do what I love.
Everything developed out of that trust. It changed my life.
The pursuit of my academic degrees in counseling and psychology had
enhanced my ability to be in touch with others through empathy. Now,
the dolphins further enhanced my ability in that area.
Many people find that when you are able to communicate with one
animal you are able to communicate with all animals, and also with
insects, plants, and trees. So my communication skills in general
improved a great deal.
Paula: In what other ways have you noticed a change?
Joan: There has been improvement emotionally and physically. I always
feel very healthy, athletic, and agile and happy, too. Of course,
the dolphins really stimulate my spiritual growth. There are many
teachings and experiences that they have shared with me that I now
use as the basis for entire seminars.
Paula: You speak of telepathic communication or perhaps a more
appropriate word is tel-empathic. What is it like to have that
Joan: I've used that word before instead of the word telepathic or
empathy I combine the two into tel-empathy. I've found that the
dolphins respond to feelings that's empathy. They understand what
you're feeling when you're swimming with them. I take many people out
in boats and some of them don't even know how to swim. I'm honored
that they trust me and trust the dolphins so much that they're
willing to go into the ocean. But even though they love the dolphins,
they may have fear of the water. If so, the dolphins will sense it
right away and be more cautious, keeping their distance and not doing
anything to startle them. The dolphins will gently approach and wait
until they feel that people are comfortable. Then they come in closer.
Tel-empathy is a big part of contacting the dolphins and
communicating. When I'm out in the boat with a group, we meditate to
start with, to contact the dolphins. I will usually send out a beam
of light from my heart chakra, and another one from my third eye. A
triangulation is created as the beams from the third eye and the
heart connect with each other.
But the most important part I've found is the empathy or the
feelings. At the same time that I'm sending the image and thinking
about swimming with the dolphins, I'm feeling the joy in my heart and
the love I have for them. The feeling seems to be the conduit the
bio-electric conductor that sends my thoughts and my request for
them to come and swim with us. This is the energy that somehow
delivers the message, and this is what they pick up. They can feel
far beyond our ability to feel. And the water amplifies that ability.
Paula: Would you say, then, that communication with dolphins takes
place on a feeling level more so than on a mental level?
Joan: Actually, it's both. The mental is a big part of it, and
thoughts are important. A person may have a thought such as, I can't
swim that fast, I wish you would slow down and the dolphins will
slow down. Many people have told me this. As another example, I keep
records of the different dolphins based on the marks on their bodies
birth marks, or injuries they have had and whether they are male
or female. When a new dolphin comes along, I'll have the
thought, "Are you a male or a female?" and in response they will roll
over and show me. I can identify more than two hundred of them by
So they can read our thoughts. I'll be with a group of dolphins and
see that one is missing, and I'll think, "Is Ragged Fin here today?"
All of a sudden, he will come from behind and zip right up in front
Dolphins also use a kind of cellular communication. In addition to
sending information directly into our brains or into our minds
which they are certainly doing I have found that dolphins also are
sending information into the cells of our body.
Paula: Humans don't seem to be generally aware of cellular
intelligence. Do you think that knowledge of this might help us to
understand more about our own behavior?
Joan: Well, the dolphins are certainly aware of cellular
intelligence. What's interesting in this regard is the latest
research involving organ transplants. Biologists are finding that the
behavior and characteristics of the organ donor sometimes show up in
the recipient. It seems as though the intelligence, behavior, and
feelings of the organ donor remain in the cells, even though the
organ is placed into a different person.
Paula: So how do you feel about eating animals? Are we taking in
cellular intelligence when we do that?
Joan: I think so. Many say that those here on the island who eat meat
all the time like the cowboys have a more aggressive behavior
pattern and their skin is more leathery. The way in which animals are
killed for meat also causes fear in the cells of the animal's body,
and people are affected by that, too.
Paula: Besides tel-empathy and cellular communication, are there
other ways dolphins and whales communicate?
Joan: Yes, they also use a tonal language to contact us. When I was
in the Azores with the sperm whales, I learned that the males can
dive down more than six thousand feet, and that the sounds they make
are not pretty. They make clicks and static at depths where the
sounds can be more easily transmitted. The dolphins and the whales
also use echo-location, which is a way of producing sound.
Paula: Is that similar to their sonar?
Joan: Yes. They send out sound waves that move toward the object they
are focused on. When the echo from the object bounces back, it gives
the dolphin or whale an acoustic picture of the environment or the
other whale, or the other person who's in the water with them. It's
interesting that in order to interpret the sounds, they have to be
loud enough for the echo to bounce back and short enough so that the
echo of one sound bounces back before the next sound is sent out.
The sounds are sent out in all directions from a cavity located in
front of their brain, called the melon.
If we are in the water swimming with them, dolphins and whales
definitely direct these sound waves toward our bodies. When dolphins
get really close to me, the interval between their clicks is so short
that it's very much like a buzzing sound.
Sound conveys a lot more information than light. Light is the way we
humans see things through our eyes. But sound provides a lot more
information. For example, studies have shown that when scanning a
fish, dolphins can distinguish whether the fish is toxic or non-toxic.
Paula: What kind of an effect do these sonar waves have on our brains?
Joan: Interesting studies have shown that when the left hemisphere of
the human brain is sedated, that person cannot speak he or she can
sing, but cannot speak. On the other hand, if the right hemisphere of
the brain is sedated, then the person can speak but cannot sing.
Dolphins, with their sounds, seem to be stimulating the right
hemisphere of the human brain, activating the dormant potential and
the higher senses like the sixth sense.
Paula: How can a person open themselves up to telepathic
communication with dolphins?
Joan: First of all, just ask. It's amazing how people don't think to
do something so simple.
When I communicate with dolphins, I enter a meditative state and
become very relaxed. It helps to have music with dolphin or whale
sounds, which can be very profound.
When you get into an expanded state, visualize the dolphins or
whales, think about them, and feel them as best you can. Imagine
yourself swimming with them. Imagine diving down, staying under
water, and not worrying about having to breathe. Join them in their
world by visualizing it, experiencing it, and being with them in the
Since water and the higher frequency of light are very similar, you
can swim in either one of them.
Once you feel you've made a connection, ask if they have something to
share with you. Have a pen and pad of paper ready. You can write
while remaining in that expanded state of awareness with the dolphins
and whales. Just write what comes, without putting any judgment or
criticism on it just let it flow.
Even if it seems awkward at first, you will eventually receive
information. Some people receive messages through images, some
through sound and feeling, and some through the body,
kinesthetically. There also are those who receive communication from
the dolphins in poetry or song.
Paula: From what you said earlier, it seems as though we do not
actually need to be near dolphins or whales in order to have
telepathic communication with them.
Joan: That's true. We can be anywhere. As I said, my contact with
dolphins began with my sitting in meditation in the living room of my
house. When you can get into that quiet space and focus on them,
they'll be there. When you get a feeling that you want to make
contact, you can just do it.
I like to go into the shower, the bathtub, or the pool, since being
in water enhances communication. Water is a conduit for sending and
receiving information. Vibrational frequencies travel eight times
faster in water than in the air.
Dolphins and whales come into the dreamtime, during our sleep. And
for me, they even enter into conversations I have with people. Or
they will suddenly come in when I'm writing on the computer.
Paula: Are there other ways that dolphins and whales affect us on
Joan: There was a wonderful story in the Los Angeles Times a few
years ago that gave a good example of the effect of whale sounds.
There were peculiar circumstances with Cadillacs being driven along
the Pacific Coast Highway in California. Owners of the cars were
returning them to the dealers because the electric door locks and the
trunk lids were strangely popping up and down as they were driving.
The company recalled the cars, and their investigation revealed that
the electrical systems were being set off by the sounds of the whales
migrating along the coastline. We can be anywhere on land, and the
dolphin and whales frequencies are reaching us
Paula: Along those lines, it's often been said that dolphins have the
ability to communicate in holographic images. Can you speak to us
Joan: It's true. I feel they communicate holographically as well as
making "surround" sounds. A hologram is an image that includes all
information "in one shot," so to speak. Like one burst of energy. As
an example, if I said to you, "The children are playing on the
beach," everyone who heard this would create a different mental image
of how that looked the age of the children, the clothes they were
wearing, if they were playing ball or something else because that
information was not be in the human communication. But when the
dolphins send me information, everything I need to know comes all at
Paula: Humans often try to get animals, and in particular dolphins,
to speak human language, which is difficult for them. My feeling is
that we need to learn how to communicate from the heart, which is
closer to their level.
Joan: Yes, that's right. It's kind of sweet like what John Lilly
did in teaching the dolphins some words. It touches my heart that the
dolphins are so willing to work with us that they sort of go along
But dolphins don't have vocal cords, and so they're not going to form
words. They're making sounds out of the melon in their heads. Their
communication has more to do with tel-empathy and a heart connection.
The information comes in on a cellular level, into your entire body.
Swimming alongside the dolphins, we may wonder, "Where did that piece
of information come from? How did that get in there?" I like to say
that the dolphins and whales are giving us answers before we know
enough to ask the questions.
They are frequently communicating in ways that are beyond our
understanding. It's much like joining a foreign culture or tribe at
first, you wouldn't understand a word they were saying. Yet the
longer you live with them, the more you learn the language.
When we swim with dolphins, I encourage people to mimic them and make
sounds as much as possible. It's very powerful to do that. When we
make sounds with them, we move into a state of love. We name that
vibration love a particular vibration that feels so beautiful,
joyful, and peaceful. The dolphins are already in that state at all
times. And if we put out a sound that mimics theirs, we start to
resonate with that same frequency.
It's interesting that these sounds can take us beyond time and space
beyond third dimensional reality. Going beyond constraints, we can
enter unlimited time and have experiences of traveling
interdimensionally, bi-locating or just expanding time right where we
are. When we get out of the water after swimming, we may look at the
clock and see that we've been out there for an hour, but it might
feel as though we've been out there for eight hours.
Paula: What can you tell us about the dolphin's ability to heal?
Joan: I've seen so much healing happen in being with the dolphins. By
using their sonar, they can determine if we are missing any
frequencies we need in order to be healthy. Then they can create that
that missing frequency a sound, although it's beyond our hearing
and send that frequency to heal us. There is a lot of fascinating
research being done on sound healing.
Dolphins also use their sonar to scan our bodies to find if there is
a block or an imbalance. They will often find blocks in the body from
previous surgical operations and beam sonar healing to them.
Sometimes, trapped anesthetics are released in this way. You can even
Paula: Is this why dolphins can have such a beneficial effect on
Joan: Yes. I have taken many children with all kinds of disabilities
out to the dolphins, and the results have been phenomenal. One such
child, who was nine years old, had undergone a hundred and fifty
operations on her brain. She had to be carried everywhere. But after
swimming with dolphins, she could walk, even up and down stairs.
This same child had a peculiar behavior: Every time she counted from
one to twenty, she would skip the number sixteen. After swimming with
the dolphins, she no longer skipped this number. And she was much
more responsive gentle and loving with others.
Another time, I took an autistic Japanese girl to swim with the
dolphins. She had the typical behavior of autism: avoiding eye
contact, being withdrawn and lost in her own world. But once she was
in the water with the dolphins, she began making sounds with them.
Then we brought her back on land I'll never forget this and after
taking off her life jacket, she walked into my backyard, which is
right there on the ocean, went over to a bush, picked a flower,
walked over to me, looked right into my eyes, and handed it to me. It
was deeply touching. Her parents started crying. Prior to this, she
had never interacted with anyone in any way.
Paula: That is so moving. I work part time with handicapped kids, and
I love hearing stories like this.
Joan: I feel so fortunate to be able to experience these kinds of
things often. It's not always easy I have to get helpers, including
big guys to lift handicapped adults. We sometimes take adults who are
paralyzed to swim with the dolphins, and we have to be able to lift
them into the boat. It takes a lot of cooperation with people working
together to make it happen. But it is always worth it.
Paula: It has been said that if we want to contact alien beings we
should start with the dolphins, since they are the other intelligent
race that inhabits this planet. Could you comment on this?
Joan: Personally, I feel it's true that dolphins are another
intelligent race, and that they really are preparing us to be in
communication with cultures from other planets. They are
accomplishing this in an acceptable way, since people love dolphins
and can relate to them. Dolphins and humans have similarities, and we
can communicate with each other. They're also joyful and playful.
Even though they've got a big mouthful of teeth, people aren't afraid
Paula: That leads me to my next question. In Dr. Michel Odent's book
Water and Sexuality, he offers the fascinating hypothesis supported
by scientific studies that humans are more closely related to
dolphins than to primates. He theorizes that dolphins and humans have
a common ancient ancestor. What do you think of this?
Joan: I feel that it's true. I also believe that dolphins and humans
can incarnate into each others' forms. That might not be true of all
animals, but I feel that it's true with the dolphins. I also feel
that the dolphins have remained in contact with beings from other
planets, as we also were able to do back in the days of Atlantis, and
at other times as well. The general human population seems to have
lost even the memory of that contact, but for the dolphins it's still
I was personally aware, even before I met the dolphins, of energies
from Sirius, the brightest star in our skies. When I first met the
dolphins, I was reminded of this energy, and asked them about it. The
dolphins said that they were not directly from Sirius, but that they
contained the energies of Sirius within their being.
Paula: Are there any ancient records or texts that allude to
dolphins' coming from another planet?
Joan: There are myths. The story of the Dogon tribe in Africa is well
known. When explorers first discovered them and asked where they came
from, the Dogon tribesmen drew diagrams of a planet with twin suns
Sirius and Sirius B. They also drew pictures, in the sand and on
their boats, that were images of dolphins. So they related themselves
both to dolphins and to Sirius.
I had an amazing experience while inside the Great Pyramid in Egypt,
when I noticed some hieroglyphs of dolphins there. With me were two
Egyptologists with double Ph.D. degrees. They looked at the dolphin
hieroglyphs and said, "We've never seen that before. Where did that
One of the most interesting pieces of information that the dolphins
have given me is their reference to a "window in time." They have
shown me an acoustic image of our present reality as moving along a
linear pathway a horizontal plane that they carefully enter on a
vertical angle, so to speak. Once here, they rewrite history or
change some things that are going on here.
Universal Law states that there cannot be interference with people on
other planets than our own unless the people ask for it. But when
there is a call for help, intervention is permitted. The dolphins say
they have come in through a "window of time" to help humanity. They
intercepted our time-line, so to speak, coming into bodies in the
ocean and bringing with them the history of human-dolphin contact:
the Roman and Greek history, as well as more recent stories about
interactions between dolphins and people. So although it's said that
the dolphins are millions of years old and they undoubtedly are
they themselves would say, "Yes, but not on this planet."
While doing research on dolphin origins, I asked my friends the
Hawaiian Kahunas the holy men of the Hawaiian people "Why is it
that in all of your traditional chants and songs there is mention of
sharks, turtles, and the other sea life, but no mention of dolphins?
Nothing. Even though you are descendants of a sea-faring people?"
They responded that the dolphins were not here yet in the old times
of which they sing.
When we talk about how old the dolphins are and where they are from,
we must think in terms of multi-dimensional universes not just this
one. The dolphins say that when they make these very high-frequency
sounds while we are swimming with them, the sounds take us beyond
time and space, and we have experiences similar to those that the
dolphins themselves had when they entered our reality. They used
sound to come in and create the reality of being with us. They say
that they've come here, into the physical plane, to teach us about
Paula: I've read Douglas Anderson's wonderful book The Planet of
Waters, which is a beautiful story about the planet with twin suns
that was the original home of the dolphins. Do you have any thoughts
to share on this?
Joan: It is a beautiful story. During my seminars, I lead people into
meditation and then read to them from that book. The words are so
dolphin-like it's the tone he sets, the way he strings the words
together, the visuals that come up it's the way dolphins
communicate. It's like poetry, and yet it has a very profound
message. I have always appreciated that book.
Paula: Tribal shamans of old allowed the spirit of a dolphin or whale
to enter their body and have an intimate communication which they
would then share with tribal members. They could also merge with
whales or dolphins and have the experience of swimming as one of
them. Do you also have these experiences. Could you tell us more
Joan: Yes, while swimming with the dolphins for hours I do begin to
merge with their essence. It's like shape-shifting. I often feel that
they, in turn, are experimenting with being in a human body, and
having fun with that. They become me and I become them we merge
with each other. At times, I get into such a high frequency of love
that my whole body changes composition. I and many others have also
had the experience of becoming invisible.
I've also seen that happen in meditation, where some people achieve
such a high state of consciousness that they temporarily go out of
physical reality now you see them, now you don't. The dolphins can
have that same effect when you spend a lot of time with them. There
have been times when I have been swimming with a group and people
will start looking around for me because they can't see me. If they
begin to worry, that always brings me back.
Paula: What do you think is the most important message that dolphins
and whales are giving us about living here on Planet Earth?
Joan: They are showing us the examples of living in harmony with
nature by living in harmony with each other. That is so important.
And they are living examples of joy and gratitude.
One other important message is that we can learn to go beyond our
five senses. It's interesting that at times dolphins don't want us to
touch them or even see them. Well, we already know how to do all
that. They want us to stretch, to use our other senses.
The dolphins and wales want us to understand, for the sake of our
planet and our own well being, that we are not alone in the universe.
It's essential that we acknowledge other civilizations in the
universe that can be of benefit to us and are willing to be helpful.
And we don't want to approach them as the enemy. We need to approach
extraterrestrial beings in the same way that we approach the
dolphins with love and openness.
Paula: In closing, what else would you like us to know?
Joan: People have found that when swimming with the dolphins,
memories from their entire lives may flash before them. Sometimes,
they remember mainly negative things. They will be crying behind
their swim masks. When that happens, the dolphins' messages will
encourage people to focus instead on the positive, and to make
positive memories, rather than negative ones, the impetus for their
The dolphins once asked me, "Why does the human race focus on the
negative things that happen and base their lives on this?" They want
people to rewrite their past and focus on the beautiful and good
things that happened, then move forward in their lives with gratitude.
Paula: Thank you, Joan, for this wonderful, playful time that you've
shared with us. Our love and respect for dolphins and whales can only
grow as we learn more about them through dedicated pioneers like you.
