Since the dawn of humanity on planet Earth animals have been our constant companions. They have been our muse, our rivals for scarce resources and a source of cheap labor. Far too often they have been dismissed as being “just an animal” and thought to not have unique personalities and human-like emotions but this week’s guest strongly disagrees. Linda Bender, DVM has written a book called “Animal Wisdom: Learning from the Spiritual Lives of Animals” which touches on topics like how children the world over view animals, animal spirit guides, precognition of future events, what we can learn from shelter animals, views on the dying process and best practices for animal communication. Paranews includes stories of more creepy clowns, scary lullabies, our weekly Melliescopes and more!!
