Recently, I attended a conference in Virginia Beach, Virginia. We were a group of Transpersonal Hypnotherapist (folks who combine mind, body and spirit in each session).
First and foremost, it was wonderful to reconnect with the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Living in Arizona, I miss the water, especially the salt water. I also enjoyed connecting and reconnecting with so many wonderful like minds.
There are two things I would like to share with you, one is funny and one is poignant.
First the funny. One thought I had when I left Arizona for Virginia Beach was that no matter what the temperature, I was going to go for a swim in the ocean. The day after I arrived was bright and sunny and fairly warm. Okay Ocean, here I come. I got ready and went to the beach. I was only able to stick my feet in the water. The water was so cold. I attempted to get my body more into the water but 57° was just too much. Oh well. I will sit on the beach for a bit and watch for the Dolphins. I lasted about 10 minutes. The wind was blowing so hard that I was pelted with sand. So much for the wind, surf and sand! And, no Dolphins.
Now for the more serious occasion. While at the conference, I was asked to assist a colleague who was experience some serious health issues. I went to my room (oceanfront) and sat at a small table. I placed a note pad on the table to take notes. I then called in my “Healing Team” and my colleague’s “Healing Team.” My eyes were closed. I began to set intentions to assist in the healing and restoration process of my colleague. I heard “open your eyes.” When I opened my eyes, I looked out at the water. There in front of my hotel was an entire pod of Dolphins that had come to assist my colleague. I continued with the healing until it was time to close the session. I looked up again and the Dolphins were gone.
Interesting how the Dolphins appeared at the perfect moment. In my daily meditations, I say “my intent, just for today, is to be in the moment, be in the now and just be.” The trip was wonderful, and I look forward to the next time. I do hope the water is a little bit warmer.
