Question for you: are you an animal person?

Do you love dogs, cats, birds, or even deer, elk, or panthers? 

What if I told you that every human being on earth has a direct connection to the spirit of animals, and that if practiced and honed over time, you could actually use the guidance and navigational power of the animal spirits to help guide you towards wholeness and wellness in your behaviors and in your life? 

If you feel into it, it feels true doesn’t it?

I mean how many times have you felt a loving connection to your pets, to animals in nature, and to nature herself?

It’s easy to forget that we are nature and we have allowed ourselves to become so disconnected from her.

Is it so hard to believe that animals can bring us back around? Back around to the calm wisdom that nature is wanting to give to us every day? 

Discover your animal power today

If you have ever been curious about animal power, today we are diving deep with a one-of-a-kind world famous author speaker and podcaster who makes her debut on Wellness Force to talk about her new book “Animal Power: 100 animals to energize your life and awaken your soul.

My guest today has become a true friend here in Austin Texas. She is an internationally-renowned Shaman, best-selling author and host of the Ceremony Circle podcast.

She went from being a national champion athlete, top-rated radio host and national daytime television talk show host, to bursting through her own personal and spiritual thresholds after a traumatic moment provided her awakening to practicing the shamanic arts and becoming widely known across the world as the Rock-Star Shaman. 

And when you hear “rockstar “you probably think of somebody playing a guitar on a stage, but when it comes to my guest, she combines those earth elements of rocks and stars to bring her medicine to the world who often shares these teachings and transmissions to very large mass audiences which allows the energy of nature to go places that perhaps it is needed the most. 

She has been a leading pioneer in this work taking it to places that it has never been before. I'm speaking of Alyson Charles.
