HOWEVER, the second power animal I met on my Journey, the Roc/Thunderbird/ Phoenix, was not listed under any form. Mr. Farmer had three different kinds of bears (black, brown/grizzly, and polar) a whole slew of birds, and others I'd never considered before to be a power animal (I.e., prairie dog).
Yet, this book was weak in the visualization/ Journey instruction department. I do recommend Farmer's other title Power Animals for this, however. It's clear these books are a pair. That's why I ended up giving it ****. Both are written well, organized well, linked well, and fulfill their stated purpose. If you're interested in Power Animals, get them!
Animal Spirit Guides' introduction is not as insightful or matter of fact as Power Animals' but it is still helpful. This book has an amazing number of animal helpers catalogued (+200) and each animal section contains a brief description of the qualities of the animal, why is appearing in your life and the message is giving to you, the qualities of the animal that you have, and in which circumstances you would like to call this particular animal to help you.
The book has a handy easy index to call animals on specific needs and purposes, and a guided meditation to contact your animal helper.
The book also includes a very good bibliography, list of online websites devotes to animal helpers/totems and animals in general.
The price makes it justice.It makes a good beside table book for consultation.
Farmer has tried to take the confusing topic of animal guides etc. and sort it out into a workable body of reference knowledge.
As with all such books, it presents nearly unlimited opportunity for debate, but that’s okay. This book is still among the best of several I’ve seen, even if only for the fact that it is based on plausible assumptions within, or without, the “scientific community”.
Farmer also made the good decision to structure it so the reader can easily move between “What is it?”, “For what purpose does it appear?”, and “What is its’ connection to Me”? And then (thankfully) he added a sort of “concordance” to enable the reader to “search” through the entire gamut of animal guides in order to quickly (relatively) refine their conclusions. A feature that I think is particularly valuable is Farmer’s constant references to animal spirits in the role(s) of healers, in particular.
I would think this to be a very good “have at the elbow" reference for anyone interested in animal guides, totem animals, power animals or whatever nomenclature one uses.
Another great book written by Farmer is “Power Animals: How to Connect with Your Animal Spirit Guide.” This book comes with an audio CD that has a guided shamanic journey taking you to the lower world to meet your animal spirit guide. I highly recommend both books!
In the introduction to the book he shares the tips on how to use the information in this book, how to honor your guides and animals, how you may get the messages from spirit guides (through visual, auditory, kinesthetic or cognitive channels), how to interpret and understand the messages you receive.
In the first part of the book, the author covers around 230 different animals. In the second part of the book, you'll find tips on what power animal you may want to call to help you in particular situation. Here you'll find animals sorted by those that may help you when you need to experience more abundance, or greater self acceptance, or new ideas and possibilities, when you need to take action, or to become more flexible, what animals may help you with different kinds of healing, with creative expression, with learning different things, with expanding awareness of different realities, communication skills, conflict resolution, detachment, releasing suppressed emotions, and this extensive list goes on.
This quite resourceful book ends with the Guided Meditation Journey, and additional resources and websites for further exploration.
