Look around. You are surrounded by life! Insects and reptiles, birds and mammals fill our lives. You may have some as pets, or perhaps you are in a less urban environment where they are in the wilds around you.

As author Ted Andrews writes, "There was a time when humanity recognized itself as part of nature, and nature as part of itself." It follows, then, that if you are a magical being, so, too, are animals. Think of what you could learn if only you could hear the ideas of the animals and attune with them. Animal-Speak allows you to do exactly that!

This book includes a dictionary of bird totems, and shows how attuning with them will help you become more aware and powerful. For example, to better understand the energies of nature, attune with the blackbird. For longevity, attune with the crane. Do you want to become more involved with sacred dancing and drumming? Observe the grouse and attune to its instinct to make a muffled drumming sound each spring during mating rites.

You will also find a dictionary of animal totems. Here you will discover that the cougar teaches self-empowerment; the tiger teaches passion, power, devotion and sensuality; and the prairie dog teaches about community. 

In the dictionary of insect totems you will find that the praying mantis can share the power of stillness; the bee teaches fertility; and the ant shares the lessons of industry, order and discipline. The dictionary of reptile totems lets you know that frogs know of transformation through water and sound, while snakes hold the secrets of rebirth, resurrection, initiation, and wisdom.

This book does more than share the powers of the animals with its readers. It also lets you learn how to meet them on their terms. Andrews is a long-time volunteer at the Brukner Nature Center in Troy, Ohio, and has included information about animal behaviors, and interesting facts about them. You will also learn the myths that surround them. Finally, with all of this information you will discover how to make use of life's greatest teachers to make changes in your daily life—changes that will bring peace, prosperity, and self-empowerment.

Descriptions of over 100 denizens of nature—from ant to wolf, armadillo to spider, ostrich to beetle—fill these pages. If you have ever wondered if they have a message for you, you'll want this book. If you have ever felt kinship to an animal and wondered why, this book has the answers. If you have ever seen an eagle soar through the air and wished you could feel that freedom, you need this book!

Never before has so much factual and mythic information about animals been collected in one volume. This book has become a standard in many book collections. It should be in yours, too!
