Straight From the Horse's Mouth
by Amelia Kinkade

I just love this book. I have read many books about animal communication. Many animal communication books that I have read I did not resonate with because I did not receive information from animals in the same way the authors do. When I read this book I was able to exclaim, "That is how I receive information!" We are each unique individuals. Each of us receive telepathic information in different ways. There is no right or wrong way. Please read many books on the subject of animal communication. Each one has wonderful stories about animals. Amelia Kinkade is the "Pet Psychic" to the stars. She lives in Hollywood and was an actress. now she travels the world teaching and communicating with animals.

The Language of Miracles
by Amelia Kinkade

If you are looking for a book that uses science to "prove" that animal communication is "real", this is the book for you. Amelia uses quantum physics and other modalities to explain how telepathic communication with animals works. There are lots of wonderful and fun animal stories throughout the book. I just love this book.

Horses: From Our Side Of The Fence
by Sandy Lagno

This book at times was a difficult fead for me, but a must read for all animal lovers that would like to deepen their communication with animals. Sandy Lagno is an animal communicator. her book is her communications with horses. So much wonderful information right from the horses mouth. Leary what many horses have to say about birth, weaning, holistic medicine, breeding, and ever phase of their lives and deaths. Sandy's translation of what she receives from the horses can be difficult to read, but she translates a bit more at the side of each page to help the reader understand what the horses are telling her. I have never had a conversation with an animal like this, but each of us receives information from animals in different ways. The book will give you much to ponder and think about, not only when it comes to horses, but all of our companion animals. I highly recommend.

What the Animals Tell Me
by Sonya Fitzpatrick

The Pet Psychic from Animal Planet and now on Sirius satellite radio. This is a wonderful book about her childhood, her talking to her animal friends in England, her moving to America and her experiences with animals and clients. I loved this book.

The Tao of Equus: A woman's Journey of Healing and Transformation through the Way of the Horse
by Linda Kohanov

This book is not about animal communication as such, but what Linda does in this book is communication with her horses as well as other animals. This book is her amazing journey from her life before horses to her present life working with equine assisted psychotherapy. Some people say that this book is too scientific for them. I say, skip over those parts and read the stories. Frankly I love the scientific 'stuff'. The stories are amazing and life changing. You do not have to be a horse person to fall in love with this book. Another must read!

Riding Between The Worlds
by Linda Kohanov

This book is a sequel to The Tao of Equus. The adventure and amazing stories continue. The horses (and all animals for that matter) want us to be our "authentic selves". When we are not, they respond as such. When we get 'real' the animals will be right there by our sides helping us in our lives. How blessed we are to have the animals in our lives. Enjoy this book.

The Man Who Listens to Horses
by Lawrence Scanlan

The "original" horse whisper. This is a wonderful story about how Monty Roberts learned to connect with wild horses and turn from a brutal method of "breaking" a horse as his father did, to what he calls 'gentling'. A wonderful story of his childhood, to his observations of wild horse herds, to his present life of teaching others. This book is not about Interspecies Telepathic communication.

Language of Animals
by Carol Gurney

Learn the 7 Steps to communicating with an animal companion. There are many helpful exercises through out the book to help you deepen your connection with your animal companions.


Your Reiki Treatment 
by Bronwen & Frans Stiene

I suggest that book for Reiki level one students and practitioners. This book goes through all of the steps for a Reiki treatment from beginning to end. The most important thing to me is ethics. With so many practitioners out there one needs to know what to expect before going for a first session. 

I recommend this book to anyone that has never had a Reiki treatment. I also suggest that everyone have a treatment when ever you get a chance. It is a wonderful treat.

The Japanese Art of Reiki 
by Bronwen & Frans Stiene

This is a wonderful book, teaching about Traditional Japanese Reiki, close to the way it was when Usui taught and practiced. Deepen your connection with Reiki. This is a very simple method that teaches the practitioner to work on themselves first. Learn many meditations, exercises and practices. This book is suggested reading for Reiki level II practitioners and above.

The Animal Reiki Handbook - Finding Your Way With Reiki in Your Local Shelter, Sanctuary or Rescue
by Kathleen Prasad

This is the SARA handbook. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to learn how to work with Reiki and and animal, including your companion animal. This book talks about the ethics when working with animals as well as the approach as one needs to approach an animal during a Reiki session completely differently than when working with a human. The animal must ALWAYS control the session. Even if you never plan on working with shelter animals this book is a must. You will love the photos along with information from many of the founding SARA (Shelter Animal Reiki Association) members.

Animal Reiki
by Elizabeth Fulton & Kathleen Prasad

Both Kathleen and Elizabeth share wonderful stories and experiences that they have had with animals and Reiki. Their approach and philosophy toward animals resonates with mine. Above all you must listen to the animals and respect their wants and needs working together in harmony to accomplish the goal of health. Offering Reiki to an animal is very different than working with humans. The practitioner must always ask the animal permission and respect them if they say "no". Always offer Reiki with hands off the body first. The animals will most likely come to you and put the body part that needs healing in your hands. Never force an animal to accept Reiki.

Pottenger's Cats: A Study in Nutrition
by Francis Marion Pottenger

This is an updated version of the original book that was written in the 50's. I highly recommend that you also read the original. It has amazing information along with x-rays, etc. 
This book is a MUST read for anyone that is interested in just how our animal companions are affected by what they eat. If you love scientific provings this is the book for you. This study took two groups of cats and followed them for many years. One group was fed kibble and the other was fed raw milk and meat. If I remember correctly (I read this book back in the mid 90's) the group that was fed the kibble and canned food over generations, developed hone and other deformities, the grass where they lived died, and many other things. The book has actual x-rays to show various situations so there is no doubt in the readers mind as to what happened to the cats in the study. Eventually these cats in the kibble group all became sterile and died out. The group with the raw food thrived. No medical issues. The grass where they lived stayed green and alive and each generation on the raw food became stronger and healthier. This book proves why our animals are getting so many cases of cancer and other diseases that never happened before the invention of processed food for our animal companions.

The Natural Cat
by Anitra Frazier

If you live with a cat, this book is a must have for your library. Everything from birth to death and in-between. Learn many different holistic modalities and how they work with our kitties. Great drawings showing details of how to give pills, ear and eye medications, and so much more. Learn about nutrition for cats. What is good, better and best. There is a great list of possible ailments and many suggestions for how to best proceed. There is a great section about going to the vet. You know that kitties are very sensitive. Learn how to clip their toe nails. You didn't think this was possible? Well lit is! This is how my husband and I learned. When Katy was about one year old she would not allow anyone to touch her paws at all. It took a while but I am able to cut her toe nails without much effort at all. Who knew? You will also learn how all kitties "blink" I love you!
