• Includes 52 full-color cards and a 128-page guidebook

• For each card, offers a detailed message, an explanation of its animal symbols, and three affirmations to help you embody the wisdom of the animals shown

• Explains how animals can help us ascend to a new heart-based frequency and teach us there is more than one way to love

We are all ascending to new heart-based frequencies, and our interactions with animals can help guide us through this spiritual evolution. Animals not only can offer us compassionate wisdom, they also teach us there is more than one way to love.

Beautifully illustrated with images of animals from around the world, including bears, cats, dragonflies, lions, manatees, otters, puffins, turtles, and zebras, the 52 full-color cards of this animal-centered deck were designed to resonate with the wisdom of the animals and universal love. The animals that appear on each card are your mentors and will guide you with profound insights to help accelerate your journey and align you with the energies of the heart. As you work with the cards, you step through an opening uniting you with your higher consciousness and new loving energies that will inspire, empower, and heal. The deck includes 50 animal cards as well as 2 “wild cards” featuring mythological creatures: the mermaid and the unicorn.

In the accompanying guidebook, artist Nadine Gordon-Taylor explains how to intuitively use the deck. For each card, she offers a detailed message, an explanation of its animal symbols, and three affirmations to help you embody the wisdom of the animal mentors shown on the card and transform limiting thoughts and patterns. The messages of the cards are not predictive. They were channeled to gently guide you and help you discover that you have all the wisdom and knowledge you need within yourself. Let this deck give you a loving nudge in the direction of your dreams. Know animals are holding you in the heart of Divine Love.

A Message from the Artist/Author

I have always felt a strong connection with animals; they communicate with me in life and even follow me into my dreams. The interaction between humans and animals is so important for the evolution of our universe. They have many lessons to teach us, especially that there is more than one way to love. Since I believe nothing is random and everything has meaning, then the animals we attract into our consciousness have important information for us to hear. I see myself (and these cards) as translating their messages of wisdom, support, and love. The animals that appear in this deck found their way to me through life and synchronicity. They either appeared to me in visions or were the favorite of countless people who came into my life. I then drew, painted, and printed them; the cards in this deck are derived from those drawings, watercolors, and monotypes.

I have been researching animal symbolism for decades -- including information from the internet, different cultural beliefs, as well as scientific research. The final messages that appear in here are a synthesis of that research and the clairaudient messages (or downloads) I receive from my soul connection to universal love. The Animal Love Oracle deck is designed to help you navigate your way around today’s issues most constructively and positively. When you choose a card you are intuitively guided to what is most right for you at the moment. Feel the messages with your heart, not just with your mind. Trust that process. I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful new time in your life and the ending of any limiting beliefs. Know that the animals are holding you in their divine hearts.

Blessings from my heart to yours,

Nadine Gordon-Taylor

From "How to Use the Cards"
Affirmations

At the end of each animal message are three affirmations that are designed to trigger reflective insights. The number three was chosen because it resonates with the energies of creation and completion. These affirmations are positive thoughts in the present tense focusing on abundance, prosperity, and peace. Use these affirmations to help shift you from existing limited thoughts and patterns. Repetition is key. The more you repeat the affirmations, silently and aloud, the more you integrate them into your conscious and shift your current timeline.


SAMPLE CARD WRITE-UP

Fox: Awareness, Flexibility, and Sensitive Energy

Your Message

The card you have selected shows a young red fox peering out from its den. The energy of a family member is watching in the distance. These two are fixated on your presence and on the landscape that surrounds them. They know exactly what is going on at all times. If you observe a fox while it is tracking its prey, you can see how its body and mind are in unison. Nothing distracts it, for if it is not focused, there is no food that day. Be mindful of your environment. Most of us are on automatic and barely perceive the day-to-day scenery. Notice all the details and beauty around you. Is there something you need to pay attention to in your environment? Slow down and take a good look at what you have manifested in your life: at home, work, with family, friends, and in your neighborhood. Do you notice what is really going on? Do you see the details? Do you like what you see? If yes, why? If no, why not? What can you do to help? There can be beauty, understanding, and true epiphanies in all situations. Know, that you are always where you need to be to shift your circumstance. Blaming anyone or anything is useless and unproductive. It keeps you looping in duality. Integrate both the positive and negative aspects of your life situation and you will change your current frequency and progress to the next level of human consciousness.

You might think your problems have no solutions, but nothing could be further from the truth. Spend some time alone in a quiet place and you will be able to hear the guidance of your higher self or soul. Know that it is just behind you covering your back. Be patient with yourself during this process. Allow the influence of your heart, not your head to be dominant. At first, it is important that you blend into your surroundings and adapt to the ways of others before you create or introduce anything new. But then strike out on your own. Embrace any "quirky" ideas that come to you, don’t discount anything. Nothing is too far out! Be on the lookout for anyone who would attempt to sway you from pursuing your dreams. Lovingly look them in the eye, smile (knowing they are here to teach you something), and then pursue your own distinctive path. You are a beautiful person here to discover and uncover your destiny. Follow your noble and wise fox to clarity, alertness, and safety.
