How I Found My Spirit Animal


This morning I was perusing the feed on my Living Like Water Facebook page. I have ignored it for far too long. I get such good feed from so many pages there.

There was a post from Spirit Science about finding your spirit animal, which I shared. I thought about mine. I’ve thought it is a dolphin for a long time. There’s a reason, lol.

In March 2015 I was sitting in a waterfront restaurant close to my sister’s house. I was telling my brother-in-law that I had never seen a dolphin in the wild. He was fairly incredulous, considering the number of times I’ve been to his house. Momentarily, like within a minute or two, I looked up to see a dolphin dive right in front of me, pointing at me. As if, saying, “here I am, I heard you.” I gasped, “Oh my God, there’s one right there!” Pretty soon everyone in the restaurant was up, getting closer to the water, taking pictures of it as it put a show on for us, for about 5 minutes or so. Then it swam out the channel and back into the Gulf of Mexico.

I don’t believe in coincidences, which is probably another whole blog. But I do believe that a connection existed, between me and the dolphin on another level entirely, for the dolphin to appear immediately upon my wistful statement that I’d never seen one.

This description of the spiritual meaning of a dolphin comes from

The dolphin spirit animal represents harmony and balance. Dolphins are both highly intelligent and closely in tune with their instincts, striking a balance between the two states. Dolphins are also a symbol of protection and of resurrection. Their playful nature is a reminder that everyone needs to approach life with humor and joy. People who identify with the dolphin totem are usually peaceful and gentle, but with a deep inner strength.

Life can be pretty amazing.

  1. the fact that it happened right then is so amazing regardless of coincidence or other. I wouldn’t read anything into it I’d savour that moment. Lucky person, you!

  2. I’m glad I read this post today. Over the weekend, my friends and I were discussing which animal we think we might be, and for me, I think it has a more spiritual element-finding our “match” in another living being. I want to check out that link and learn more about mine. Thanks for this post and I’m so happy you saw the dolphin exactly when you did. Perfect! ❤

    • Thank you so much. The dolphin was amazing! I’ve been interested in it a long time. I don’t believe in coincidences so if an unusual animal crosses my path, I think they may be telling me something, or a sign of something. Always have to go look up the meaning. Hope you find your spirit animal too!
