My Animal My Self, Learning Their Language, Beyond Words, and Ask Your Animal – Marta Williams

My Animal My Self gives you a completely different understanding of your animal –why you are together and how you are collaborating with each other in life.

Learning Their Language is a how-to book that gives detailed instructions, step-by-step exercises, and lots of examples and stories. It covers everything from how to talk to your own animals to medical intuition, to how to talk to wildlife and nature.

Beyond Words is a book of amazing stories told to me by students and clients about their own experiences with animal communication.

Ask Your Animal tells you how to apply intuitive communication techniques for resolving behavior problems with your animals, creating a deeper relationship, and improving training.
