Welcome to Angel Animals®
Would you like to discover and benefit from the miraculous powers of animals?
Allen and Linda Anderson help people to recognize how animals in your home and in nature:
• Have a "sixth sense" and instinct
• Show unconditional love
• Make even the saddest person smile
• Deliver divine messages
• Heal and bring comfort
• Appear in dreams
• Offer assurance that there is life after death.
"Animals are divine messengers of miracles that go far beyond emotional comfort and practical assistance. Talk to those who have been transported to a heavenly place by the gentle purring of a kitten or whose broken hearts, burdened by worry and pain, have been mended by a dog licking their hand. They will tell you that animals
connect them with the River of Life in ways poets imagine and
mystics contemplate. They will tell you that their deepest and most sincere relationships with animals are spiritual partnerships." --Allen and Linda Anderson, Angel Animals: Divine Messengers of Miracles, p.1
