The phenomenon of whales and dolphins beaching is not a new one. In fact, it’s been going on for hundreds, if not thousands, of years … so the overriding question is: why do they do it?
Many experts believe that these catastrophic events could be down to sonar malfunction of the lead cetacean. Others blame brain fluke – prevalent in cetaceans. However, this does not explain why other seemingly healthy Atlanteans choose to end their own lives by beaching alongside their leader.
Maybe, just maybe, our cetacean experts are overlooking a vital factor as their logical minds naturally compel them to focus on the physical rather than the spiritual.
Many people adopt the term ‘suicide beachings’, but ‘suicide’ is an all-too-human concept to describe a totally Atlantean act.
I am well aware that I am now swimming into rough seas by airing this point of view, but I firmly believe that we have to think outside of the box.
Cetacean activists are now campaigning vigorously to have dolphins (a small whale) reclassified as non-human persons. So, for those of us who believe unconditionally in the superior intelligence of these sentient beings … what if these apparent suicides are in fact something else?
During my time training show dolphins, I strongly sensed the Atlantean concept of death to be totally different from our own – an ethos that caused me much anguish and soul-searching. So instead of bandying the word ‘suicide’, maybe we should view these beachings as a spiritual ‘moving on’.
If you wish to delve deeper into this belief, I urge you to check out the award-winning The Perfect Pair Dolphin Trilogy written by David C Holroyd and Tracy J Holroyd. I’m sure that you’ll find both its theories and revelations mind-blowing.
Thanks for listening.
