Experience the Magic of Spirit Animals, Soar with Dr. Steven Farmer and our sacred storytellers as they share personal tales of spirit animals appearing to them in real life, in dreams, or symbolically, to share their mystical yet practical medicine. Discover how these spiritual allies can guard, aid, heal, and guide you in the most unexpected and delightful ways, including: A jaguar that restores hope to a heartbroken woman. An otter that instills confidence in a young single mom. A family of whales that washes away fear and inspires an awe for life. A poison dart frog that cautions about caring for our air and water. A coyote that warns a man of his friend's deception. A moth that teaches of grief, loss, and eternal love. Renowned "animal spirit guy" Dr. Steven Farmer explains how these profound en-counters affirm our intimacy with the animal world and the realm of Spirit. His wisdom will heighten your understanding of spirit animal symbolism, the five major ways that spirit animals can speak to you, and how to discern their messages for you. Learn how to receive the animals' gifts in the form of wisdom, guidance, protection, and power, and come to feel their support, trust their keen perception, and appreciate the simple ways in which they appear just when you need guidance the most. ANIMALS will show you how you, too, can fly like an eagle, run like a puma, and reach new heights like the tallest giraffe.
