// Praise for Hand in Paw:
"Hand in Paw invites us into the rich and amazing world of animal communication. An ordained Interfaith Chaplain, Nancy shares her powerful and touching journey from an intuitive longing to communicate with the non-human world to full realization of its rich chorus of voices. From her family of animals, to the world of birds, coyotes, dolphins, llamas, and animal spirit guides, to the oceans and the earth herself, Nancy shares the profound guidance and wisdom of our countless non-human companions, and what it means to love an animal, not as a pet, but as friend, family member and spirit guide.
It came as no surprise to me that I have grown closer to my own aging friend Bugsy, our eight-year-old rescue dog, who teaches me how to live cheerfully with arthritis, blindness, and too many stairs."
John C. Robinson, Ph.D., D.Min. Author of Three Secrets of Aging, Bedtime Stories for Elders, What Aging Men Want

Fascinating to read! Children leaving home, a cat enters and perhaps the change she asked for is being answered. Now the great excitement Harmonic Convergence. Okay now here we go, "the resonant frequency of the earth grid would shift." Winter Solstice, twenty years later, "everything comes together in its own time." The author is an intuitive animal communicator, animal Reiki practitioner so her story in this book is pretty amazing actually. Asking a dolphin her individual gifts and how they were helping her to grow? Or the word shaman on a book pulled slightly out of the headboard bookshelf, a sign? Something said, "Get me out of here!" What could it be? Lexi, a female Australian shepherd in a kennel. Now this story gets really interesting because that voice came from a dog speaking to her mind. Chakra and energy centers and envisioning spinning colors and third-eye chakra and be in tune with life in all its forms. Meditations and intuitive communication ability. Parrots, sea turtles, guinea pig, parrots and so much more, what she sense is their voices and their expectations. This book will take a hold of you and set your mood in a tranquil state. The stories are fascinating to read. A writing style that project a voice that makes you focus on the subject. I won this book on Goodreads First Read Giveaway. Thank you, Darlene Cruz
