      They Sang for Horses

      The Impact of the Horse on Navajo and Apache Folklore

      by LaVerne Harrell Clark

      First published in 1966 and now considered a classic, THEY SANG FOR HORSES remains the only comprehensive treatment of the profound mystical influence that the horse has exerted for more than three hundred years. In this completely redesigned and expanded edition, LaVerne Harrell Clark examines how storytellers, singers, medicine men, and painters created the animal's evolving symbolic significance by adapting existing folklore and cultural symbols. Exploring the horse's importance in ceremonies, songs, prayers, customs, and beliefs, she investigates the period of the horse's most pronounced cultural impact on the Navajo and the Apache, starting from the time of its acquisition from the Spanish in the seventeenth century and continuing to the mid-1960s, when the pickup truck began to replace it as the favoured means of transportation. In addition, she presents a look at how Navajos and Apaches today continue to redefine the horse's important role in their spiritual as well as material lives.

      How to Communicate with Your Pets and Help Them Heal

      by Dr Monica Diedrich

      There seems to be an emergency in the middle of the night, but you can't get to the veterinary hospital. Or your pet is living with a chronic condition, and veterinary medicine can't do anything more to relieve it. You are on an emotional roller coaster with worry, fear, grief and an overwhelming sense of helplessness. You wish you could ask your pet to tell you what's wrong. You want, with all your heart, to "Do Something"! Animal Communicator Dr Monica Diedrich faced this very same dilemma when her two-year-old Shih-tzu was close to death. As she lay on the floor beside him, she clearly heard him say, "You call yourself a healer . . . so do something!" She did as he requested, and he experienced an almost miraculous recovery. It was Chop Chop's heart-felt plea that then inspired Dr Monica to develop this series of books. In each book she provides a wealth of both spiritual and practical ideas to help you, as pet parents, "Do Something" when you are faced with similar challenges. In this first book in the series, Dr Monica clearly shows you how to: Engage in a real conversation with your pets about everyday things; Discover where it hurts and what to do about it; Use intention and visualisation as a catalyst for a speedy recovery; Utilise the healing benefits of aura and chakra energy; Select from among six guided meditations to help your pet to heal; Discover your own inner power to use the healing energy of love.
