“Let shame be shame” (Andreas, Navy led reserve, sport coach from London)
Dolphins are connected with the power of breath and with emotional release, which are also both deeply connected. One of the most important factors in spiritual growth is to give ourselves the freedom of full experiencing our feelings and emotions. Often negative emotions are suppressed as we don’t want to be a part of them, so we try to stay apart from them. Feelings of sadness, pain, anger, grief. We need to stop doing this, as this only lays the foundation for disagreeable outcomes. We need to feel our feelings, by suppressing these feelings, of course they DO NOT go away. They are still there, subconsciously, manifesting blocked energy with-in, and if these blocks aren’t removed, this can go on to physical imbalances, with-out. On top of this, by blocking these so called negative feelings, this can result in losing the quality of being able to feel at all, losing much of life’s joy. Becoming dead to the world.
“WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME?” WITNESS THE EGO AS OBSERVER.
Message from Whale. Recognize that you are the creator of your life. Clear your consciousness from negative energy, from conversations, experiences, and your own internal dialogue. Release emotionally charged thoughts. Water assists in regaining emotional balance.
PRACTICE SELF ACCEPTANCE.
According to Shepard (1979), self–acceptance is an individual’s satisfaction or happiness with oneself, and is thought to be necessary for good mental health. Self–acceptance involves self-understanding, a realistic, albeit subjective, awareness of one’s strengths and weaknesses.
Just like the Robin, the giraffe spirit animal symbolizes self–acceptance and self–love. The giraffe is proud of its appearance and knows that it is truly unique in the world. You should be like the giraffe and be proud of your beauty. … Your giraffe totem has its long and graceful neck as its most prominent feature.
