In Search of Herman My New Humpback Whale Friend

In Search of Herman My New Humpback Whale Friend

I love science and am grateful for the researchers, data and all the effort that goes into testing so many important theories. Truly, we need science for figuring out life-saving medical procedures, understanding the foods we eat and even exploring our vast Universe.

However, my personal premise is “everything is possible”. There are no limits unless we set them. As for science, it will catch up, as it usually does, to explain various phenomenon to whatever degree we humans are able to comprehend.

I mention this because I believe this is precisely what is happening with my conversation with whales. (If you are new here, be sure to read My First Meeting with Herman, A Whale.)

Please don’t get caught up with proving the science of the possibility of my whale encounters just yet. Hold the thought and hear me out. And hold the thought of investigating the character of the messenger, as well. First, let us explore the messages of the whale and his method of teaching. There is much to learn.

The process of communicating with Herman is similar to how I work with my clients. After years of practicing astrology and giving intuitive readings, I learned that it is the initial image, feeling, and impression that holds the key. It is when I use my gifts to expertly and precisely unpack the symbolism of that first image on multiple layers that I unlock the perfect gems to deliver to my clients, providing them with the universal message they seek.

Just like it is my job to translate the image, I must employ language through a lens that will be heard to communicate the teachings of Herman, the whale.

“We are never alone,” Herman BOOMED from his heart. The deepest resonating voice I had ever heard or felt spoke to me as if a mountain had spoken directly into my heart. It was then, witnessing the beautiful autumn sunset over Elliot Bay, that I first met Herman.

After our initial meeting, I was excited and full of love. I was eager to learn more and develop this new friendship. My expectations were high, and I felt as if a great treasure hunt had commenced. Perhaps we were finally turning a collective corner and multi-species communication was now possible. Full of hope, each morning I set off down the beach scanning the watery horizon. I knew Herman would surely be nearby because I physically felt him so strongly.

But weeks passed and I didn’t see a whale even though they were plentiful along the point. I didn’t even see an orca with all the hours I spent scanning the horizon. For months, I took morning walks looking for him. One day, I sat down in the wet sand by the shore, disheartened. Where is Herman? I wondered. He was so clear and present that we would work together but, where is he now? How many days and hours must I look out over the water in search of you? Then, an ah ha moment! Wait! Could I be looking in the wrong place?

I decided to go precisely to the spot where I first met Herman, on the inner planes. There was a deep, deep breath and a smile from the heart at my willingness to play. Wow, I thought, what a tough teacher you are Herman. I looked for months for you, yet you waited until I realized I would find you in my heart. That is our meeting place.

My appreciation and awe for the wisdom of this teacher, a vast planetary elder, grew immensely. I encourage you, where you are, right now, allow yourself to imagine this voice, this great booming, loving voice speaking into your heart with so much love that tears start streaming down your face. Go ahead, you are human, and you can feel this, too!

    Hi Kerry,
    I think of you often. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you yet I feel you are just around the corner.
    So awesome your apartment on the water, Now you are back on the East Coast. Herman is now a part of you and you in him.
    I am spending more time these days reflecting who we are and how we perceive the world around us and in us. It becomes more surreal with each passing experience. Are ability to experience the subtle things around us and in us is what makes life so exciting. Though the masses don’t seem to pick up on it on the surface, the awakening is for everybody’s taking.
    Hope life is good for you, Call me anytime just to talk. I am on the same time zone here in Ecuador. Coming back to Seattle in April 425 236 6692
