The early chapters include the story of a lost cat who turns out to be teaching her person a much-needed lesson in responsibility; and one of a horse who gives his person valuable advice on his breeding program--advice which his person then follows with excellent results. Many of these stories are told in the animals' own words and from their point of view.
The bird chapter begins with stories of African greys, Macaws and Caiques living with humans, and moves on to an interview with a group of wild California condors who are having an unusual impact on a small town in the Sierras. The dolphin and whale chapters describe encounters with these animals in the wild, and also present an inside account of the way a group of animal communicators mobilized themselves to warn migrating Grey whales of the dangers they were facing from Makah hunters in Neah Bay. The wolf chapter is a series of interviews with a family of captive-bred Mexican wolves who were released into the Gila Mountain Wilderness in Arizona. When Raphaela describes facing the wolf known as M-131 in a remote mountain clearing, and trying with him to regain a lost spiritual relationship, it is a profound example of the kind of insight and connection which is impossible without telepathic animal communication.
The last chapter is a brief introduction to the art of talking to animals, written for readers who want to try animal communication themselves. And of course, nothing could be more natural. In the dog chapter, Raphaela informs a client that her German shepherd dog, Helga, has just said that she hurt her ear on a piece of barbed wire. The client thinks, "This is ridiculous! If Raphaela can talk to my dog, I can talk to my dog!" So she turns to Helga and says, "Okay, where is this barbed wire?" Helga, delighted to be included in the communication at last, trots outside to show her person what she's been trying to tell her all along. The client, and the reader, will never look at a dog in the same way again.
When a book helps its readers grow in appreciation of the wisdom, intelligence, compassion and beauty of animals, we can all be happy, for this is exactly what every one of us is trying to achieve. And it is what this book, along with many other recent books on animal communication and wisdom, provides.
Wisdom of the Animals is unique for another reason. The readers see the process of learning to communicate with animals mirrored in the authors themselves. Elizabeth Morrison is much newer at it than Raphaela Pope. She shares her process of building confidence, learning techniques, and receiving clearer and clearer information. Animal communicators in-training will benefit from reading what Elizabeth and Raphaela receive from the same telepathic conversation.
Best of all, this book is a heart-opening and heart-warming read. It was a treat to spend 240 pages in the company of two such wonderful people!
