Angela  Kämper - Messages from Animals


The knowledge of our Celtic ancestors about the significance of animal messengers – newly discovered and re-interpreted for our time

The first comprehensive overview of the particular messages of Middle Europe’s native animals

Reflects a general growing interest in shamanism and totems

When the glowing forms of a pair of barn owls leisurely circle over you while you’re taking a walk at night, when a dragonfly lands on someone’s shoulder on a warm day, when in broad daylight a white ermine crosses in front of us, or masses of ladybugs fly into the office – these occurrences are fascinating to us and at the same time pique our curiosity.

Almost everyone has had unusual encounters with animals that stick in the mind and give rise to the feeling that these didn’t happen simply by chance. Angela Kämper’s animal-messenger lexicon delves into the world of shamanic beliefs and concepts in which each animal possesses a spiritual significance. Even in the continental European realm, the knowledge about the power and the messages of animals was once widespread, especially in the Celtic culture. This lexicon is the first to describe the qualities characteristic the native animals of central Europe. In over 100 short chapters, topics such as mythology, spiritual significance, dream messages, and the biology of the particular animals are covered. With this sort of understanding, we can recognise our unusual encounters with animals as types of ‘road markers’ in our personal life and paths of learning.
