• Reveals the energetic connections between 88 different animal allies and 88 gems, stones, and crystals from the mineral kingdom
• Includes animal medicine teachings from a variety of creatures, from hummingbirds and cats to dolphins and bears, to help you find inner peace, knowledge, and wisdom
• Explains how the color, formation, and the manner in which a stone grows in the Earth offers a teaching to know yourself and your life purpose
All creatures, great and small, in all species on this planet are interconnected. When an animal, insect, bird, or other creature from nature appears repetitively, whether in real life or dreams, it is time to pay attention and find the message that nature is bringing you. There are many teachings available to us through the observation of a particular animal totem and their habits and patterns. For example, parrot medicine can teach us to see life from another perspective as we mimic the wise ones who have walked on the path before us. Mouse medicine teaches us to scrutinize all the details before taking action. Bear may teach you to go within yourself to find answers within your personal cave. Every animal is an ally, and every animal has a story to help you find inner peace, knowledge, and wisdom.
The associated gemstone for each animal totem is a further indication of the energy of the animal as symbolism and a teaching on your sacred journey. Crystals, minerals, and stones hold the history of the Earth and all this planet has to offer you to evolve your soul and spirit in this incarnation. The color, formation, and the manner in which the stone grows in the Earth offers a teaching to know yourself and your life purpose. It takes time and inner reflection to understand the messages and clues throughout the gemstone kingdom.
Matching the teachings of animals with the teachings of gemstones, Margaret Ann Lembo shows how there is symbolism in all around offering clues to light your path. Exploring 88 gems, stones, and crystals and 88 different animal allies, she details the spiritual connections of crystal vibrations and animal medicine, providing you with a deeper understanding of the interconnected energies of everything around us. She shows how the spiritual fulfillment you seek is available to you in so many ways and this path of working with gemstones and animal medicine is just one of many.

Are you trying to get motivated to act? Are you mindful of taking more than you need for daily survival needs?

The energy of antelope is beneficial when you are shoring up and supporting your crown chakra on all levels--mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

On a spiritual level, take the time for contemplation, meditation, and prayer. On an emotional level, embrace your feelings and integrating any emotions that need extra attention.
Antelope is also known as pronghorn and belongs to the same family as gazelles--the Bovidae family. All gazelles are antelopes, though not all antelopes are gazelles.

If antelope leaps in your life, acclimate and rapidly move forward. Take time to reflect on the lessons you’ve learned in that period of time--both intellectual knowledge as well as the understanding of life. Antelope signals that it may be beneficial to think about where you want to be eight to ten years in the future. Observe the messages, for they lead you to a better understanding of your life purpose.
