Find Your Spirit Guide . . . January 6, 2012 by Shiva Rose I recently went to see a spiritual guide, writer, teacher named Laura Amazzone. She had much to tell me about the path I'm on. She mentioned my Animal guide is a deer which was uncanny since I've been seeing them everywhere. I have animal cards that I use periodically, but Laura recommended Ted Andrews' book Animal Speaks which is now living by my bed. I've finally taken the plunge and removed the TV out of my bedroom. I did it mostly because I noticed I was relying on it to anesthetize my feelings after a hard day, and it was beginning to become my emotional husband. I can still watch films in another room, but the bedroom is now my sacred space for reading and dreaming. Animal Speak helps us identify, meet and attune to our spiritual guides. As Andrews so eloquently states: "Animals can restore our forgotten childlike wonder at the world, and they reawaken our lost belief in magic, dreams, and possibilities." What is your spirit guide? What animal do you see throughout the day? What animals did you love as a child? Is there an animal that frightens you? So many things we can learn from these messengers . . .
