Description

Explores the powers and wisdom of sacred White Spirit Animals

• Looks in-depth at the lessons of the major White Spirit Animals: the White Bear, White Lion, White Elephant, White Wolf, and White Buffalo

• Explains how to use shamanic dreaming and trans-species telepathy to communicate with these great spiritual teachers

• Reveals how White Spirit Animals are calling humanity to restore balance, respect, reverence, and honor to protect our animal kin, ourselves, and the earth

Beautiful rarities of nature, all-white animals are held sacred by many indigenous cultures and offer deep wisdom to all who will listen. In addition to the White Buffalo, there are other revered white animals, such as the White Wolf, White Lion, White Elephant, and White Bear. Each of these White Spirit Animals belongs to a species at the apex of their ecosystem, meaning the environment in which they live will unravel without them. Speaking through ancient and modern prophecy and the many humans who communicate with them, these White Spirit Animals are urgently calling to humanity to restore balance and protect our animal kin, ourselves, and the earth.

Combining sacred elder lore, science, and her own telepathic dreams, Zohara Hieronimus looks at the special role played by White Spirit Animals in spiritual traditions and prophecy around the globe, where they are seen as guardians of animal wisdom, each with a special purpose and gift. She reveals how they have collaborated with humanity since the last ice age, inspiring spiritual practices and conferring shamanistic powers, and are considered the stewards of the great spiritual transformations that occur during transitional times. Sharing the waking vision of White Spirit Animals that called her to write this book, and their message of CPR for the earth--conservation, preservation, and restoration--she explains how to use shamanic dreaming and trans-species telepathy to communicate with these great spiritual teachers. Exploring each one of the major White Spirit Animals--White Buffalo, White Lion, White Elephant, White Wolf, and White Spirit Bear--and the cultures in which they are honored, the author shows, for example, how the White Buffalo is called a harbinger of peace and abundance by many Native American tribes and the White Bear, the great earth healer, teaches us about nurturance and patience.

As a bridge between the spiritual and physical worlds, between humans and animals, White Spirit Animals are calling us to open our hearts to the wild, to the sacredness of the wind, the water, the earth, and dream a new world into being to heal our own personal and collective wounds and restore the earth to balance.

Praise For White Spirit Animals: Prophets of Change

“Great Book! White Spirit Animals combines shamanism, trans-species telepathy, historic research, and native stories to show the reader why we must save the bear, lion, elephant, buffalo, wolf, and other species from extinction and how they have guided humanity in the past. A unique testimony to the close relationship between humans and animals and our ability to communicate and collaborate with each other.”
— John Perkins, New York Times bestselling author

“Brilliant visionary work that pulls humanity into alignment with our animal kin and forgotten souls.”
— G. A. Bradshaw, Ph.D., author of Elephants on the Edge

White Spirit Animals is a beautiful and deep work of art and heart. It provides a wealth of cross-cultural, historical, shamanic, and mythical information. It is likely to connect the reader with the symbolically deep realm where dreams come from. The images and stories resonate with that place of inner knowing in us. I am enthusiastic about this book--thank you, Zohara Hieronimus!”
— Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D., author of Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman

“The traditional Haudenosaunee/Iroquois view is that those in the animal world are related to us. As humans we are within the same circle of life as animals as well as trees, plants, and the earth itself. Animals and birds serve as symbols for the family clans, and the bear and the wolf are part of that. These teachings are clearly covered in this book.”
— John Kahionhes Fadden, cofounder of the Six Nations Indian Museum

“In these times of turmoil, it is critically important that we listen to the phantom shaman-animals who have stepped forward to guide us. Zohara Hieronimus knows where to find them, and she knows their language. With White Spirit Animals, she has given us an invaluable portal into their world. I implore you to go there.”
— Tamarack Song, author of Becoming Nature: Learning the Language of Wild Animals and Plants

“Zohara’s magnificent White Spirit Animals reminds her readers of the human/animal bond and its continued importance. Her book hearkens back to shamanic practices that employed spirit animals as copractitioners. . . . White Spirit Animals can teach, protect, and heal their human siblings, and in so doing expand the boundaries of what is possible.”
— Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Alan Watts Professor of Psychology at Saybrook University

“Zohara Hieronimus provides an important bridge linking modern objective science and ancient and traditional shamanic beliefs--a very useful contribution.”
— Stephan A. Schwartz, author of The 8 Laws of Change
