We just returned from our amazing Whales of Moorea Retreats and are floating in a bubble of bliss still! See below the story of this extraordinary photo of me being practically hugged by this baby humpback whale … photo clips taken by Liz Adams on her GoPro. Continue reading “Hugged by a Whale Calf!”
\r\n\r\nIn September of last year, 2010, we took several groups to the Kingdom of Tonga for our spiritual retreats to swim with the humpback whales. We have done this for seven years now and have had the most amazing experiences with these Masters of the Sea.\r\n\r\nThe whales imbue us with their deep wisdom and grace as we float ever so gently near them. It is surprising to me how close they allow us to be … and especially to their precious calves. We believe that the whales carry the codes of energy that support the planet and that they hold within their giant fields the Akashik Records (energetic knowledge about all of creation.)\r\n\r\nThey teach us that they are dreaming the dream of what we see as reality before us. They are fully conscious and awake beings. Being in their presence ignites within us that knowledge too and they help us to become who we really are as spiritual beings in human bodies.\r\n\r\nOn our last trip, I had the most extraordinary experience of all time. We had witnessed a whale “heat run.” This is the term for many males pursuing a female for mating. It is one of the most exciting events on this planet to witness! The power is just overwhelming as they surge forward, trumpeting and sounding with the thrill of the chase.\r\n\r\nWe spotted at least five and maybe six males chasing a female with a calf and an escort as well. This went on for about two hours and we were right in the middle of the melee! When the chase was over and they all calmed down, we had an opportunity to get in with them because they were now swimming slowly.\r\n\r\nOn my second time in, I looked only about twenty feet ahead of me and to the side to see that one of the whales was blowing thousands of bubbles from its blow hole. My first inclination was to swim right over to the stream of bubbles to be right in the magical effervescence! A few moments later, I could hear the captain shouting at me, “Trish, look down, look down!”\r\n\r\nWhen I looked below me, there was a huge whale only about ten feet below me. Suddenly it too began to spew out thousands of bubbles right into my body! It was the most exhilarating experience of my life! I felt as though I went right into an altered state of being and could feel the tingling as the bubbles exploded on my skin.\r\n\r\nAll I could think was that I was being bathed in whale breath … a bubble bath from the largest living beings on the planet! This particular whale swam forward from underneath me and when it got about twenty feet ahead, turned and looked right into my eyes. I though it was going to turn around and come back to me! But it just stared into my soul, turned forward again and went on its way.\r\n\r\nThe message I received telepathically was that he was helping me to become crystal clear. Also, the main message from the whales for 2010 was to “Allow the unfolding.” Isn’t that beautiful?\r\n\r\nAfter returning home, I felt as though all of my senses were enhanced one hundred fold. To this day, colors are more intense for me and I really do feel as though I am clearer than I have ever been in this lifetime.\r\n\r\nI am so grateful to the whales for this extraordinary experience.\r\n\r\n*The extraordinary photo was taken by one of our participants in the retreat, Debi Billett … thanks Debi!
