"I always warn my students that learning intuitive communication with animals and nature [sic] is a spiritual journey that will probably change their lives."

"I say this because to communicate well, you must learn to recognize and trust your own inner wisdom. That alone is a radical shift for most of us. Once you start telling people what you're doing, you will have to learn to endure being ridiculed and trivialized by some. That will make you strong. And if you continue with the practice, you will almost certainly be led on a far different path from the one on which you started" (p. 149; see also, Smith, 2004, 2006).
