Dr. Steven Farmer writes:
Spirit attempts to communicate with us in a number of different ways and it’s up to us to become better listeners, no matter how these messages come to us. One of the most accessible ways is through animals. Whenever an animal shows up in an unusual way or repeatedly in a short space of time-whether it’s the physical animal or a symbol of an animal-it’s one way Spirit tries to reach us and teach us. When this happens there’s a lot more going on than you might expect. In these instances it’s not just the animal or the life force that animates that particular animal, but much bigger than that. The oversoul of that species has sent a representative to offer you a message, to resonate with your spirit-consciousness and offer you guidance along your spiritual path.
