Where do you “get” all the information for your books and videos about the spiritual wisdom of animals?

Each of my books and videos begins with a considerable amount of research into the physical, behavioral, and biological characteristics of each creature, along with an analysis of the ways in which the creature has made an appearance in global history, mythology, religion, and in some cases, pop culture. My sources include scientific journals, books, newspaper and magazine articles, posts from websites that I have determined through repeated cross-checking to be reliable, and conversations with individuals who have either worked with these creatures in rehabilitation situations (in which the animal’s wildness is preserved in order that it may return to its natural habitat) or observed them at length in the wild. For example, when preparing the video for Golden Eagle, I consulted heavily with a friend who is a wildlife photographer and was able to provide me with first-hand accounts of Golden Eagle behavior. When writing Animal Totems and Spirit Guides: The Wisdom of Owl, I visited one of our local raptor rehabilitation centers and attended a lecture featuring owls, and I spoke with two other rehab centers about specific owls and their unique qualities.

Unless a quality can be verified at least three times—i.e. at least three different recent sources give this same information—I do not use it, no matter how tempting it may be. When I was first making these videos, I discovered quite quickly that even the most reputable-seeming sources often present inaccurate information! Much of the most readily available animal research is old and badly out of date, but is still reported as current; providing the most accurate videos and books possible for you means wading through decades—sometimes centuries!—of data about these creatures and delving into scientific journals that require close reading, rather than accepting as truth the information most easily accessible Online.

Once I have a list of fact-checked qualities, I subject each of them to an in-depth metaphysical analysis. In other words, what does this quality about this unique animal represent for the human who resonates with it (or who is encountering it as a spirit guide), and why? I have been immersed in psychological and metaphysical study and symbolic interpretation my entire life, so I have quite a long list of resources to choose from, including astrology, numerology, tarot, the mind-body connection (i.e., what emotional states are related to what part of the body), the chakra system, chromotherapy, elemental wisdom, psychology, runes, mythology, archetypal symbolism, dream interpretation, and linguistics.

The last step in the process is purely intuitive. I literally put out an Ask to the Universe as to whether or not there is anything else I need to know. Sometimes nothing comes back, and I have a very strong Sense that I already have all that is needed, and it’s time to move on to transcribing everything. Other times, answers come in a host of interesting ways! The critter itself might physically stop by to visit, I might dream about it, I might stumble across information about it while reading or watching something unrelated, a client will randomly bring up their experience with it, or my uber-psychic Mama will say, “Hey, I just heard this weird thing about [some] animal. Did you know this?” out of the blue. I may also be drawn to a new book or video about the creature, usually one encountered while searching for something else, or, and most frequently, I’ll suddenly simply have a strong intuitive notion about this animal. If I can fact-check it, I will, but sometimes, I just have to trust that it’s correct, even if I can’t find anything else that supports this information.

I do not consult the works of other authors. I did this early on and found that it muddled my own interpretations; I either did not resonate with something about which the author felt strongly, and then felt pressured to include it in my own work even though it didn’t feel right, or they did not include something that had really spoken to me, and I then worried that I was wrong. For this reason, the work I do is truly unique to me.

I would really like to become a client! Are you sure you can’t squeeze me in . . . ?

I can’t even begin to tell you guys how hard it was to make the decision to stop seeing new clients! I’ve enjoyed nearly a decade of working with people from around the world, and it has been more amazing than I could ever have dreamed. I have no doubt that working with you, too, would be a wonderful experience, but just as I would advise you to do were you in my place, I’m letting my Heart take the reins! For the time being, the time and energy not given to my existing clients really wishes to be channeled into creating videos and books that can be enjoyed by everyone, and not just those who can afford my session fees. However, I have definitely considered the possibility that this might change in the future, even just temporarily, in which case, I would make an announcement on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. If you’re really bent on working with me, JOIN my YouTube Channel as an official Member (Those who have been supporting my work financially would be first in line as clients, were I ever to begin seeing new ones again), Like my Facebook Page, and/or Follow my Instagram Account, and keep an eye out for updates. Also, you may wish to visit my Contact page and read about how to let me know what video topics would interest you! It may be that I’ll make a video on precisely what you are needing to know!

What is your sign?

We are all far more than just our Sun sign, so knowing this alone is kind of like knowing someone’s hair color – it might help you identify them in a crowd, but it still doesn't paint a full picture of who they are. For those of you who are desperately curious, I am a Taurus. I credit my Sun and Moon in the 8th House with being one of the driving forces behind my finding myself in this line of work.

What are some of your totems?

Raven, Red-Tailed Hawk, Bear, and Snake.
