This little dolphin begged to be created in my little sketchbook, and he was delightful to draw, and it was even more delightful to smudge around the Stabilo pencil outline with water, then add a quick (and bright) watercolor wash. I chose the green intuitively, then sat back to reflect.
Green, by the way, is the energy of the heart chakra... and while many of us focus on chakra alignment, we typically neglect the BACK of our chakras. And the back of the heart chakra has to do with RECEIVING.
I asked dolphin if he had a quick message for you, and here is what he said:
"I bring you the energy of potential. I am holding the space for you to decide to step into yours. Or SWIM in, if you will. Flow amongst the energies and allow yourself to be CARRIED into your purpose. We talk about receiving, and receiving also means allowing yourself to FLOAT with the tide instead of struggling against the current. Will you allow yourself to be carried into something even greater than your mind could conceive?
It doesn’t need to be an earth-shattering purpose. For now, fully BEing is enough of a purpose in the world. Just by BEing, you are having an impact, "
And another dolphin message from Carrie Hart's site, Power Animals Unleashed:
"The dolphin is so full of joy, he cannot help but leap into the air, just for the sheer pleasure of being alive. Allow this vibrant life force to fill you, making you feel and know the privilege it is to be drawing one more breath in this precious life. Let the dolphin teach you this deep abiding joy.
The dolphin is also a wonderful communicator. He will teach you to listen to others and then to respond in a way which they will understand. With the dolphin within you, words will flow more easily. You will come into your own power as a communicator of both feelings and ideas, as his intelligence fills you with confidence in expressing yourself.
The dolphin is attuned to others, instinctively knowing just the right moment to leap into the air, so that the entire group moves in effortless harmony. Let the dolphin teach you this intuitive synchronicity with others, moving at one with them and understanding what drives them and what moves them."
Take what resonates for you today and sink into it! <3
