A fantastic guide, I’ve done a meditation for my animal guide in the past, but years ago and was so happy to be able to read and review this book. It’s really well presented, welcoming and inviting the reader in, the tone is encouraging and invites any level of person in, those experienced in meditation and spiritualism, but also those taking there first steps into spirit guides, meditation and finding who you are or want to be. This guide is beautiful, full of great illustrations and photos, steps, helpful hints and meditation guides. It’s just perfect, I will be using this again and again, not just a book you read once and don’t return to. This is a manual you’ll need in your life. Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion

I always wanted to find out about my spirt animal so I was dead excited when I got to read this book. This is book I will keep coming back to and I will read one section at a time more than once because there’s a lot of information and I want to find how which animal is my spiritual guide. I think it’s lovely how there are lots of pictures in the book and it talks about lucid dreaming and what happens if you feel wake when your dreaming. Then talks about the different spirit animals and how to maintain relationship with them. I find this book very useful. Thank you NetGalley for letting me read this book.

This is a concept I am really interested in, but I am not too familiar with it. I love the idea of spirit animals, and I think I have several myself. After reading lots of African literature, I have gotten more and more interested in this subject. When I saw this book I knew I wanted to read it. The book is filled with information regarding spirit animals in general and also about a whole bunch of different animals. I found the information both intriguing and useful, and now i long for more information. There are lots of meditative exercises I have not tried yet. If you're even a little interested in this subject, I would advise you to take a look at this book!

This is a excellent guide for both beginners and experienced . I loved that the author presents the material in a logical way that anyone can relate to. Thank you to the publisher and to Net Galley for the opportunity. My review opinion is my own. The author has included large and small animals and even reptiles. She refers to the symbolism of each animal and what that spirit animal says to you. She includes lessons and guidance to understand your own spirit animal and how to incorporate them into your life. I enjoyed reading this book and will use it as a guide . I highly recommend this book for all who are interested in pursuing knowledge of their own spirit animals.

I have been practicing Shamanic techniques for many years, Animal lessons and guidance have always been in the forefront in many cases. I wish I would have had this remarkable guide when I first started my journey a long time ago. This book by Ms Brunke has so much healing, and positive journeys in it that I am in awe. For those who are just interested in what animals mean when they appear in our lives this book will give you safe and known animal meanings. If you are interested in really moving forward into the animal realm then this book will guide you then also. It is chock full of sequential exercises and rituals. Many Ive seen before or done but there are also a lot of practical exercises that I learned from reading that I am going to try out soon. I love getting outside and doing this kind of activity but it can also be done from the safety and sanctuary of your own home or looking out the window. My favorite activity was the walk in Nature. However I learned some very interesting ways to look at that walk and record it in a new way. This book is more than excellent. It is one of a kind .

I found this book to be very fascinating. When I first got it I expected it to be solely about animals and their meaning. Well it did have that but it also had so much more. It was an interactive guide featuring step by step meditations you can practice to help you commune with and learn from your spirit animals. It also had a great section teaching you how to recognize spirit animals in your dreams that I found extremely helpful. I also liked that the section of the book with the spirit animals and their meanings was categorized by type making the book very easy to navigate and find exactly what you are looking for. My only complaint is that I wanted it to go into a little more detail for each of the animals. Otherwise, this is a great starting point for anyone looking to learn.

This title was very informative and beautifully presented. It did not, however, provide a quiz or other "instant" indication of my particular spirit animal. In that respect, I'm still a bit unsure as to how to determine my animal. But, for those who know their animals, it was an information read about what a large variety of animals mean.

This guidebook is a perfect entry point for anyone interested in spirit animals! The tone is welcoming and encouraging, allowing both beginners and more seasoned people to feel comfortable learning and practicing the meditations and exercises. I really like the layout, which is clear, concise, and well written. In general, this is a wonderful directory that people will find themselves reaching for over and over again!

The Spirit Animal Directory shows and explains different ways of communicating spiritually with 100 different animals. It is a welcome addition to more detailed and sometimes cumbersome books on meanings of spirit animals. The meditation techniques detailed in opening to animal guides and helpers are solid and well explained. Modern shamans can use this guide in connecting more deeply with animal spirits.
