What They Want Us To Know: Messages of Hope, Meaning and Unity From the Animal Kingdom.
Have you ever wondered what animals would tell us if they could? This book will give you that chance to find out! By being able to receive downloaded messages from wild and domestic animals, Shawndra translates their messages for us. These animals have shared powerful messages of unity, connection and purpose, and steps that each of us are able to take to deepen the connection, find more meaning in our lives, and become the humans that the animals know we can be. You’ll hear messages from 12 different animals on what they want us to know in order to live a more profoundly amazing life. You’ll be given the opportunity to learn ways to be more compassionate, tolerant and heart-centered, to the animals and to each other.
Have you ever had an imaginary friend? If I did, I don’t remember them. I remember talking to my dolls and any animal, but not an imaginary friend.
Do you have any phobias? It’s weird – shellfish, for eating. I can’t stand to look at them in the store, or touch the packaging, and the thought of eating a geoduck or a soft shell crab makes me want to gag.
Do you listen to music when you’re writing? Not normally, but for inspiration I’ll listen to binaural beats occasionally.
Do you ever read your stories out loud? I do. It does make a difference, and I’ve made changes to the manuscript after reading it out loud.
Tell us about your main character and who inspired him/her. I guess that would be Joey, the dog who started me on this path. He pushed me so far out of my comfort zone and what I thought I knew about the world. He really caused me to alter my path and question everything.
Chapter Seven Hippopotamus
HIPPO WAS THE FIRST TO open the door to what I could be, something that has made me more connected to my higher self than I ever thought possible. After Dr. Jeri Ryan had helped me communicate with my dog Joey, I took her animal communication class and Hippo was the first one that I connected with telepathically. I can still vividly remember how I felt when I tuned in to Hippo. It felt completely different from speaking to a human or even daydreaming. I was connected to something outside myself that I didn’t even know was there but that felt instantly familiar. It felt more real and genuine than most of the conversations I’ve had with humans. It felt clear, honest, kind, and deeper than what I was used to with most humans. And it happened in a matter of minutes, not months or years of building trust. While Joey was the catalyst to bring me to this moment, Hippo was the one who I listened to for the first time and who opened my heart to more awareness of this new path.
