Patricia Mortlock loves animals. She tells about their lives in much the same way as the Chicken Soup animal-lover stories. Animals Speak: Communication with Animals - Both Living and in Spirit is different from Chicken Soup in one important aspect: Mortlock is an 'intuitive.' You don’t have to believe that she is an 'intuitive' to enjoy and have a good cry over these tales. But you do have to understand that she believes it. This collection of tales about elephants, cats, dogs, horses, and even a lizard features communication not only in words but also in pictures and emotions. Her stories are about animals who have come into our lives not only to love us, but to teach us and care for us, and in several instances heal their humans or save their marriages. Some of these animals speak to Mortlock when she focuses on their pictures. Some are alive and some are “in spirit.”
People sometimes think they don’t understand their pets. They don’t know why their animals do certain things. Sometimes they just want to know what their animals are thinking. Patricia Mortlock has developed her intuition in such a way that she can help people get to know their animals better. Animals Speak: Communication with Animals - Both Living and in Spirit answers some of those questions, and offers guidance for readers who want to develop their own intuition. Mortlock’s stories inspire the reader to deepen his or her relationship with the animals in their lives. I was particularly impressed with her story about hearing a horse explain what he needed to recover from a disease. If you love animals, this book will increase your appreciation for their presence in our lives and the friendships that they offer. This is the story of a heartfelt connection between a human and the animals she meets.
