Just like you, I love animals. Their care, rescue, and conservation has always been my heart’s passion.

Ocala, Florida (Horse Capital of the World™) is where I roamed as a kid. My mom, grandma, sister, and I lived on 15 acres filled with magical and majestic 100+ year old oak trees.

And because stray animals of all kinds seemed to “mysteriously” show up on our doorstep we always had quite the menagerie.

I’ve worked closely with every farm and domestic animal you can think of as well as the wild animals who inhabit the forests and rivers of Marion County.

Over the years, I’ve also volunteered at a number of exotic and big animal sanctuaries.

Currently, I live in my beloved Florida 6 rescue cats and a rescue Chihuahua/Terrier mix.

Why I built What Is My Spirit Animal.com

Bernadette King Shamanic Practitioner 800x530

I built What Is My Spirit Animal.com as a labor of love and as an answer to one of the strongest callings I’ve ever had.

It’s my way of honoring the spiritual connection we all have with the animal kingdom.

During times when I’ve been down, animals have always been there to lift up and heal my spirit.

Their innate capacity for unconditional love and complete forgiveness have been my greatest inspiration.

The life lessons they’ve taught me have been and continue to be among the most profound.

To that end, my sincere wish is that folks find the information on these pages helps them to;

  • Better understand their own relationship with animals
  • Become more conscious of and comfortable with their own animalistic nature (including their shadow side)
  • Discover and connect to their Animal Spirit Guides
  • Develop their animal communication skills
  • Recognize and interpret the symbolic meanings of Spirit, Totem, and Power Animals
  • Utilize the ancient, natural, and divine wisdom of the animal kingdom to enrich their lives
  • Learn about the folklore, myths, traditions, and rituals from around the world which include animals as part of the culture’s sacred experience

Animal Communication

Bernadette King Animal Communication 800x600

For as long as I can remember, animals have gravitated to me.

Once, I walked into the pet department of a big box store and a group of employees had an aisle blocked off.

They were searching for something so I asked the worker nearest to me what was going on.

“A stray cat got in a couple days ago and nobody can catch him. Now it’s up under that pallet of food and we don’t want to move it for fear it will kill the darned thing or he’ll just run somewhere else in the store.”, he said.

I asked to speak to the manager.

I told him, “If you’ll get these folks to leave and just give me a few minutes, I likely can get the cat.”

He laughed and said, “OK, lady. Give it your best shot!”.

5 minutes later I had the (now) calm, cool, and collected kitty in my arms and waved to the stunned manager as I walked out the door.

Today, pet moms and dads from all over the world contact me for animal communication readings.

    Just purchased the Ark Animal & Oracle Deck today. I was drawn to the deck. When I opened the 300 page book for the first time, it opened to the Crab page. I am a Cancer Zodiac sign. I knew this deck was meant for me after that happened. I look forward to viewing your videos and incorperating your Ark deck into my clients reads and other areas I do readings for.

    Thank you for creating this spectacular deck.
