A nice beginner book. Contains black and white drawings with an overview of 100 animals. The information is useful and easy to decipher.
From a tiger swimming through deep green mangrove swamps to a butterfly flittering through a birch wood, primitive shamans believed that every creature is imbued with innate power and consciousness. The spirit of the bear, elk, or dragonfly could sustain human lifeâor destroy it in a moment of capriciousness or jealousy.
In this fascinating volume, you'll learn to adapt the principles used by shamans of the past to interpret the behavior of animals whose world we share today. You'll also discover what your animal guides are telling you when they reveal themselves through nighttime dreams or in the day-to-day world around us. Learn to:
â¢ Recognize your animal totem when it tries to contact you
â¢ Understand your totem's special qualities
â¢ Interpret what your totem is saying to you
From tiny ants (whose message is togetherness) to mighty moose (who encourage self-reliance), this dictionary of creatures from earth, air, and water will help you to interpret the messages animals are sendingâand show you how to use their age-old wisdom to improve your life today. If you've ever wanted to âtalk to the animals,â this book will show you how!
