As a 21st Century Viking I find that the relationship that I have with my animals is extremely important to me. Mostly because they are my children and I am their protector and Guardian. They are just as much a part of my community as any of the humans. I extend to them my hospitality, and in return they offer me reciprocity for what I give, and it is unconditional.
When I had my chance to get my hands on Animal Healing by Niki J. Senior, I leapt at the chance to read it. I mean who wouldn’t want a chance to read and review a copy of someone’s book. Especially when you write books yourself? I was thinking that I might get one or two things out of it because I have lived and practiced different techniques with my animals since I was a kid, when I actually read the book though I was amazed at what I learned.
The book was an incredible read for me. It opened my eyes to an entirely new use of my skills as an energy worker and animal lover. There are applications for techniques that use with the humans in my life that I never thought of even attempting for the four legged beasts that rule my heart. I also love how the author’s narrative style opens up and talks to you about her personal experiences. It draws you into the book and makes you feel like you are talking to a friend or learning in a classroom rather than reading it, or listening to a college lecture.
While this style of writing may not be for everyone the information that she teaches in the book is extremely valid. From the information given even in the first few pages I was able to put it into use with my five felines, and my four legged nephew. The rest of the book gave me specifics to help narrow down and focus my abilities also different techniques to apply.
I have been actively practicing energy work for almost twenty years but someone that hasn’t could also pick up this book and understand how to do all these techniques as well. The book also manages to speak to many age and experience levels because of the universality of the topic. Who in this world that is not a sociopath doesn’t love a furry four legged critter and want to help it? This is one of those must have books for a Spiritual Animal Lovers Collection or any Shelter to have for Volunteers and staff to read.
