The Power of Animal Medicine


This isn’t a topic I normally write about. And I’m not an expert by any means.

But animal magic and medicine has been flashing in my face for the past two months.

First, I met up with my friend Susan for a very-belated birthday lunch at a yummm vegan restaurant in Westlake Village. I knew she had an affinity with wolves but I didn’t realize she has been deeply involved with a wolf sanctuary here in Acton, California. It is also the first to offer a therapeutic program between troubled teens and wolves.

I immediately felt a connection to Susan that was new. And a desire to see the sanctuary and be near wolves. I plan to donate $10 from each sold copy of Return to Enchantment to Wolf Connection during the book’s pre-launch. More information will roll your way in 2015.

You see, my family once had a hybrid wolf-german shepherd named Tyson (named by my brother who was obsessed with the boxer at the time). I was in love with Tyson. He was so intelligent and affectionate. At the same time he scared the shit out of people because of his size and more slinky demeanor. He walked like a wolf. Not a dog. He looked you right in the eye, fearlessly.

Tyson has moved on to the next world, but after seeing Susan I began to dream about him again. In one of the dreams he was guiding me on an unknown dark path.

After that dream it dawned on me that I needed to have a wolf on the cover of my upcoming book Return to Enchantment. My launch coach and book cover artist, Angie, added a wolf next to the woman on the cover. I didn’t like the fact that she was alone. Now she has an ally at her side.


Because the truth is we are never alone. We are surrounding by beings – animal guides, angels, ancestors, mer spirits, fae and ascended masters. Every success and love that we’ve had over the years didn’t just come through our own making. Everything is a collaboration with the world of the invisible.

The second synchronistic event that happened around the same time was that my friend and writing coach (who inspired me to write Return to Enchantment) Rheba told me about a children’s book she wrote about a german shepherd named Bode.
