About SPIRIT ANIMALS: Spirit Animals as Guides, Teachers and Healers is a compilation of articles penned over the years by Dr. Steven Farmer about a topic very dear to his heart: how animals can serve as spiritual messengers to help guide, teach and heal us. Although this subject is covered in detail in some of his other books and products including his best-selling Animal Spirit Guides and Pocket Guide to Spirit Animals, this book offers a different perspective and shares true life stories of experiences with spirit animals. As Dr. Farmers says, “As you read these stories, I’m sure you’ll find yourself intrigued by the entire topic.” Dr. Farmer has witnessed many examples of how the natural world communicates with us, particularly through the animals that show up in physical reality or in consciousness. Spirit Animals as Guides, Teachers and Healers is designed, as Dr. Farmer says, to show how simple it is to learn from these spirit beings, so that we may become better listeners with our ears, eyes and other senses. The more we pay attention and “listen” with all our being, the more we will come to discern and understand their messages.
