I just wanted everyone to know that I’m so, so excited about the next book. I’m going to find out soon whether it’s definitely going to become a reality, but my heart tells me it will. I’m already having sessions with Robert and Jamie to gather the information, and, as my literary agent put it, “It’s rich and heartfelt.” I think that anyone who has or is now struggling with anything, in other words anyone who’s human, would benefit enormously from it. The publication date is tentatively set for Fall of 2015, so it’s a ways off. Since I don’t plan on taking any information from the blog, I’ll need this length of time to have the channeling sessions I need. Also, none of it will be published on the blog. My working title (which only serves to indicate what the book’s about) is Being Human: A Spirit’s Perspective. I might ask for personal anecdotes from you to place at the beginning of each section. For instance, I’ll need stories from those of you who’ve suffered child abuse, who feel stuck, who feel lonely, who can’t find abundance, who don’t know what to do about a toxic relationship in his or her life and dozens more. Erik’s going to be the Dr. Phil of the spirit world! (He won’t let me call him Abby from “Dear Abby.”)
Blog member, Jen, brought something very cool to my attention. In one of my radio interviews at the 9:10 timestamp, you hear Erik saying, “Pushing on her.” Then Jamie tells the host, “He says he’s pushing on you.” Here’s the link. You can also listen to the entire show if you want.
Now for today’s topic. I’ve always loved dolphins. I don’t know, I just feel such an inexplicable kinship for them.
Me: Are dolphins sentient beings? Are they from a different star system, and why do so many people feel so connected to them, me included?
Erik: Dolphins are mermaids.
Me: Well, that’s just a title. You’re just putting a label on them. Oh, are they the ones that people thought they were mermaids?
Me: So manatees aren’t the animals people thought were mermaids?
Erik: Seriously? Those fat, gross manatees?
Jamie (horrified): Oh, Erik!
Erik: The ones that have that icky weird skin?
Erik: Yeah. Um, no. There’s a river dolphin that’s pink. Looks like human skin. They’re not around much these days, but this is what started the whole thing.
Me: Wow. Interesting. But I still think that, in some cases, manatees were involved.
Erik: I want people to see dolphins as instinctual as people, and they have a very complicated language. They’re family oriented.
Jamie: Um, you can choose to put this on there or not, okay?
Jamie: He just stopped me in my tracks!
Erik: They even do things like group rape and shit like that.
Me: Oh, I’ve heard that. Horny little bastards.
Erik: Yeah, go look it up, Jamie!
Me: It’s true.
Jamie: Oh, my gosh.
Erik: Even though they’re herd related, community related, they have individual relationships. They do engage in group survival techniques. To pay attention to where they are, their behaviors and what they’re doing says quite a bit about the underwater world. What was the question?
Me: Well, they’re sentient beings, obviously. Are they just as capable as us at using logic and intuition, to follow their hearts, or are they able to follow their hearts more than we are since we rely on our heads so much? Tell me about their consciousness thingie.
Erik: Their whole consciousness thingie is very similar to our consciousness thingie.
Me: We have twin thingies! Yay!
Erik: They have internal thought, connection to subtle energies even beyond language, beyond sound, sonar. They have intuitive and telepathic skills. They have instincts that we used to have that we pushed away, and we create all of this.
Jamie: He stands up and points around the room.
Not sure what he means by “all of this.”
Me: Are they from another star system?
Erik: You mean like us?
Me: Yeah, but are they from a specific one, I guess I mean, or are they like us and come from all sorts of different star systems?
Erik: They’re kind of like us.
Jamie: He’s trying to give me visuals, but it’s confusing me.
Erik (playfully): Cuz you’re too simple minded?
Jamie: No, because it’s too much. Downloading, talking and showing me stuff just breaks me!
Jamie: Simple minded!
Me: Erik! How dare you?
Erik: It’s the same platform where we come in and incarnate into lives and cycle through, you know, this soul energy, this spirit energy. Animals do the same thing. Anything with a life force on this planet does the same thing. You look at the trees, plants, the worm, the beetle, the dolphin, the fish, the human, whatever; it’s all going through the same process. Just because our understanding of relationships is to relate only to like-minded beings, people to people, doesn’t mean we have a different process when we step out of this realm into higher dimensions. It’s not true. We are in step with all life energy, all life forces. This is the sweet spot. This is the part where humans just kind of go overboard and don’t get it. They don’t understand because it sounds too science fiction.
Me: Well, why do we feel so connected to them?
Me: Or is it like some people feel very connected to dogs, that sort of thing?
Erik: Yyyyeah, but that’s different. Why not –
Jamie (chuckling): Sorry. He just went off on a little tangent.
Me: He tends to do that!
Jamie: How dogs bite and blah, blah, blah. Even cats attack.
Erik: Show me an instance where a dolphin totally attacks a person, and I’ll show you a mistaken case where a dolphin is trying to fuck the human being.
Jamie and I laugh. Nervously.
Erik: They’re love makers, and I think we instinctively know that. We know that they’re zero threat, and that’s why we’re attracted to them. It’s the same when we look into apes and gorillas. We look into their eyes and have a connection, but then we look at how they behave, and we get fearful because they can attack. They will put up boundaries. But a dolphin is like, “Come on, Dude!” He’s like your stoner friend who’s like, “I’ll be your friend, man.”
Jamie and I giggle.
Erik: A big stoner dolphin person. That’s their definition.
Me: That’s so funny.
