Recently I had the great pleasure to be a guest on the “Good Vibrations with Kristin” podcast that runs live streaming over thegreendivas.com. As host Kristin Ace is a lifelong animal lover, she had invited me on for a lively discussion about the myriad ways animals communicate with us. And beyond that, what they mean to us on the deepest level.
To catch the podcast, go here. As Kristin says in her accompanying post:
The animal world shows up to bring us love, mirrors things we need to transmute and moves us into an elevated vibration. They teach us compassion, forgiveness and unconditional love. They open our heart chakras.
This is the home of my book in progress, The Roscoe Effect: Eternal Animal Truths to Transform Your Spirit. It’s where you’ll find the wisdom teachings of animals real and mythic from diverse cultures around the world, such as Hindu, Tibetan Buddhist and Native American shamanism. Animal meditations, exercises and other offerings are aimed to empower you. Consistently practicing them can tame your mind, lift your heart and unleash your spirit.
Who’s Roscoe? Until his untimely passing at age ten in 2008, Roscoe was our indoor-outdoor, heart-stealing ginger tabby with tons of matted hair, immense bravado and a hefty right hook. But though there’s a lot to say about Roscoe’s alpha personality and what made our relationship magical, it’s for more than sentimental reasons that he gets his name on the cover. It’s what he showed me about myself that became the inspiration for The Roscoe Effect.
