"Everyone is wounded in some way," said Brooks, "Our wounds are our emotional, spiritual, and psychological manifestations of our opportunities to grow spiritually."
When I read God is in the Little Things:Messages from the Animals, this past weekend, I have to admit that as much as I DO believe in the spirit world, and the belief that loved ones and animals do communicate with us, the skeptical side of me had a hard time believing some of the events that Author Brooks experienced that are featured in the book. By her own admission in the preface, she says that: "though some things will seem fantastical, I assure you they are all true."
I had never heard of the concept of animal totems until I read this book, I am sure that many of you probably have, I just had never heard of them, after reading this book, I am interested in learning more.
From Patricia's website: Animal totems are animals that visit us either physically, in the dream state or through mediation. They come to us in either unique or repetitive ways. The belief is that the animals energetically communicate with us whether through their own spirit or God communicating through the animals. The behaviors and characteristics of the animals are studied because they are symbolic of their message. This belief has been a part of many cultures throughout history. For centuries man has looked to animals and the symbolism of their unique qualities, to garner guidance and inspiration.
I am going to let you make your own judgement, and if any of you have read this book and would like to share your thoughts below, please do by leaving a comment below. Also, if you want to share your experiences with animal totems I would love to read about those as well if you would be kind enough to leave me a comment below. I look forward to you sharing your thoughts!
