The understanding that animals can be spiritually called upon to assist us in almost every aspect of our lives is a realisation that opens a floodgate of knowledge and power to those who seek their counsel. Ancient teachings suggest that we are capable of communing with the forces of nature and speaking readily to the animals, birds, reptiles, fish and even the insects. Each animal offers its own sacred teachings. When we take the time to learn the symbolic language of the animals and listen carefully to what they have to say, we can use the knowledge gained to manifest their qualities and wisdom into our own lives. Featuring an in-depth exploration of the Dreamtime and of Australias seasonal wheel of the year, as well as a guide to finding your own Australian animal totem, Animal Dreaming explores the spiritual and symbolic interpretations of over 200 native, domesticated and introduced animals, birds, reptiles and fish in Australia.
Renowned author and acclaimed Animal Psychic, Scott Alexander King presents these animals to his readers as totems, teachers, healers and spiritual allies, offering a wealth of ancient knowledge and spiritual insight into the ways of the animals. Animal Dreaming is an Australian first and an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in the animal kingdom, sacred Earth Wisdom and Shamanic Lore.
Scott Alexander King is an author, teacher, public speaker, psychic medium, practitioner of Earth Medicine and Zoomancer: an individual that examines the habits and appearance of animals to help explain or reveal the future path of other people. And as far as he knows, he’s the only Zoomancer in Australia! Having spent almost two years training daily under a medicine elder, and with 13 publications currently on the international market, all centred on animal symbolism, totemism and spirit animals, Scott calls his path ANIMAL DREAMING – a shamanic path that directly draws upon the wisdom, symbolism and medicine ways of animals. Australian born, Scott lives in the picturesque, subtropical Norther Rivers, located 30 minutes inland from New South Wale’s iconic Byron Bay, with his wife, three children and a menagerie of rescued animals, including a camel, a miniature donkey, shetland ponies and alpacas.
