White Spirit Animals:

Prophets of Change



J. Zohara Meyerhoff Hieronimus, D.H.L.


Reviewed by Henry Reed


I'd heard of white buffalos and that they were considered sacred. I know I've had a preference for white goats. I had no idea that there were other animals who could appear in the white and also be considered sacred. But that's what I learned while readng White Spirit Animals: Prophets of Change. If you have a feeling for animals, then you'll enjoy this exploration of these special critters.

          There are several features that makes this book unique. One is that the author introduces us to the significant humans who have pioneered in the field of animal consciousness, by which I mean communicating with the animals to realize their particular perspective concerning life on planet Earth. Secondly, we are introduced to animal telepathy and intuitive, inter-species communication. Third, but not last, we gain so much by being in the company of the author, someone who from an early age took a devout interest in the emotional and spiritual life of animals and dedicated herself to learning the art of animal communication. The book is truly a work of love.

           I may be an animal person. At a party, I notice right away any dogs or cats. I seem to feel more comfortabe getting to know them than I am approaching the unfamiliar humans that are more numerous, and speak English. I wouldn't say I was an animal communicator, I'm much too impatient for that, but I value the idea of it, and have spent quite a bit of time practicing having a heart connection with the animal to see how it responds. My little experiments give me the basis for believing what I am reading in this book. Much of the information about the animals comes from the critters themselves, communicated directly, intuitively, to the human reporters.

           Read how the author practiced "dream incubation" as part of her program to establish intuitive communication with a particular animal species. She kept a record of these dreams, of course, and her sharing of methods may inspire you to some of your own experiments. A pure heart seems essential, as well as the intention to follow through, or put into practice the wisdom gained. Also, I should warn you, that along with the inspiring stories that will excite your spirit, learning from the animals about the pain, degradation, and other horrors we humans create for the animals will be quite depressing. The silver lining is that experiencing the level of compassionate forgiveness the animals expressed, unequaled in the humans except maybe with the Amish, may birth a new spark of hope within you.

From the Publisher

Explores the powers and wisdom of sacred White Spirit Animals 

• Looks in-depth at the lessons of the major White Spirit Animals: the White Bear, White Lion, White Elephant, White Wolf, and White Buffalo 

• Explains how to use shamanic dreaming and trans-species telepathy to communicate with these great spiritual teachers 

• Reveals how White Spirit Animals are calling humanity to restore balance, respect, reverence, and honor to protect our animal kin, ourselves, and the earth 

Beautiful rarities of nature, all-white animals are held sacred by many indigenous cultures and offer deep wisdom to all who will listen. In addition to the White Buffalo, there are other revered white animals, such as the White Wolf, White Lion, White Elephant, and White Bear. Each of these White Spirit Animals belongs to a species at the apex of their ecosystem, meaning the environment in which they live will unravel without them. Speaking through ancient and modern prophecy and the many humans who communicate with them, these White Spirit Animals are urgently calling to humanity to restore balance and protect our animal kin, ourselves, and the earth. 

Combining sacred elder lore, science, and her own telepathic dreams, Zohara Hieronimus looks at the special role played by White Spirit Animals in spiritual traditions and prophecy around the globe, where they are seen as guardians of animal wisdom, each with a special purpose and gift. She reveals how they have collaborated with humanity since the last ice age, inspiring spiritual practices and conferring shamanistic powers, and are considered the stewards of the great spiritual transformations that occur during transitional times. Sharing the waking vision of White Spirit Animals that called her to write this book, and their message of CPR for the earth--conservation, preservation, and restoration--she explains how to use shamanic dreaming and trans-species telepathy to communicate with these great spiritual teachers. Exploring each one of the major White Spirit Animals--White Buffalo, White Lion, White Elephant, White Wolf, and White Spirit Bear--and the cultures in which they are honored, the author shows, for example, how the White Buffalo is called a harbinger of peace and abundance by many Native American tribes and the White Bear, the great earth healer, teaches us about nurturance and patience. 

As a bridge between the spiritual and physical worlds, between humans and animals, White Spirit Animals are calling us to open our hearts to the wild, to the sacredness of the wind, the water, the earth, and dream a new world into being to heal our own personal and collective wounds and restore the earth to balance.
