The Meaning of a Dolphin Sighting

A Bit of Confidence, Kindness, and Kidding Around

If you’ve had a dolphin sighting, you can probably recall the rush of that “awe-of-nature” feeling that first came over you. The meaning of a dolphin sighting goes as far and deep as the oceans they travel, and it’s most definitely a spiritual experience.

What does the dolphin know that you don’t? Read with a life path psychic today and find out!

Chances are that at some time in your life you found yourself fascinated by the dolphin. Perhaps you heard of dolphins aiding beached whales or the dolphins who may have saved someone by keeping sharks at bay. Perhaps, like many of us, you’re familiar with the 70s television show, Flipper, that was all about the friendship between a boy and a dolphin. Flipper saved people in peril as well, no matter whether they were good or bad. Dolphins are both brave and heroic yet they can be extremely gentle and kind as well as show empathy for others. They use their intuitiveness as much as their intellect and like us, they’re just as much spiritual beings as beings made of flesh and bone.

Graceful, Skilled, and Social

If you’ve been lucky enough to have a dolphin sighting, then one of the first things you probably noticed about a dolphin is its playfulness—swimming alongside a fast-moving boat or simply spending quality time with others in a lagoon. You get the idea pretty quickly that they are not only skillful but graceful, swift, and part of a big group or pod to whom they show their devotion.

Spirit Animal: Playful, Intelligent, and Intuitive

As a spirit animal, the dolphin reminds us to live in the moment. Intuitively they connect, not only to each other but to all of their surroundings. They listen to those little nudges of excitement and even danger and act upon them. Their intellect tells them whether it’s time to form a plan or if it’s okay to go on playing. It’s because they are so sensitive, that they are also able to live in the moment, and so ready to switch gears immediately if need be. Dolphins serve as a reminder to us not to focus on the little things that seem big and overwhelming—the things we can’t control. Yes, danger may strike at any minute. However, dolphins don’t waste time worrying about danger because they like to have fun. That’s something we humans have to keep learning over and over again.

Totem Animal: Protection and Cooperation

As totem animals, dolphins show love, cooperation, and selflessness. They maintain a strong bond by putting the welfare of the pod ahead of selfish pursuits. If there’s a threat, the whole pod steps in to protect the group—the old, the young, and everyone in between. Dolphins work together to protect the safety and well-being of their whole “family.”

Power Animal: Confidence and Power

Dolphins often fight off orcas to save others; they are fearless and protective. If the dolphin is your power animal, you’re someone who is confident and comfortable in your own skin. You’re unafraid to be who you are. You’re like the playground superhero who steps in when someone has to deal with a bully, and you don’t back down.


Socially skilled, balanced, graceful, intellectual, and instinctual are terms that merely skim the surface when pondering the meaning of a dolphin sighting. Humans feel quite connected to dolphins because they remind us to enjoy the moment. They remind us that we shouldn’t look too far into the future, or hold on to the past too tightly. Your dolphin sighting is a spiritual message reminding you to just “Let it be,” as the Beatles would say.

Now and Then

From ancient times, dolphins are seen as spiritual beings. In Greek mythology, Poseidon was often seen in the company of dolphins, and it is said that dolphins brought the great sea god his beloved wife. Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess, was also often seen in the company of dolphins. Dolphins are both a symbol of love and healing. Some ancient Greeks believed that dolphins carried the souls of the dead to the heavens.

The ancient Romans also believed that dolphins were in charge of bringing the souls of the dead to heaven. Therefore, dolphins have a spiritual connection to the idea of not only life and death but spiritual renewal and rebirth as well.

For many Christians and Native Americans, dolphins symbolize protection as well as good luck. We have always held a deep connection to our water mammal cousin, and perhaps we will learn even more one day about just how connected we are.

With all that you now know about the dolphin, do you look forward to your next dolphin sighting?
