I was greeted by his lab...
Which already set me up for success: Alexandra sees dog = instant joy = good mood = I got this.
What I love about Dr. Farmer is that you’d never know he’s a world-renowned healer and author. You’d watch him walk barefoot around the neighborhood, waving at the neighbors. But then you’re in his presence and, I genuinely mean this, you feel nothing but Spirit. As my mentor would say, “You can be in the presence of the holiest of beings, and they’d never tell you. You’d just know that you’re in the presence of someone wonderful.” That was Dr. Farmer.
Funny enough, I was connected to him through my medium. Long story short, he needed some help with his business. I was looking for something to fill my time and pay the bills while I looked for a full-time gig. For about a couple months, we were buddies—he’d be at his desk, I’d be on the couch. He’d grunt in minor frustration, I’d be like What now, Steven. We discussed work, life and spirituality. Thank goodness I can call him a dear friend and spiritual mentor, but I just loved being around him and learning through osmosis. But of course, I am so honored that he wanted to participate in DogEared Book Club.

Dr. Steven Farmer, my goodness. You have outdone yourself! If you are in the spiritual world, I’m sure you know of this guy. His best-selling works include:
Healing Ancestral Karma, Earth Magic(TM), Earth Magic(TM) Oracle Cards, Messages from Spirit Animals, Power Animal Oracle Cards, Pocket Guide to Spirit Animals, along with several children’s works that have won multiple awards. They can all be found on his website, drstevenfarmer.com. They’re also available on Amazon (but, personal preference, I try not to buy books from Amazon). And, they’re available at most spiritual stores.
Dr. Farmer also has two new oracle cards coming out in 2022, so stay tuned! I currently have two of his, Power Animals and Earth Magic(TM) , and I love them. They’re a perfect way to start off either a morning or week.
His suggestion: call in your guides, ancestors, whoever and whatever makes you feel connected. Thank them, then, ask a question—can be general or specific. Make sure to shuffle the cards and pull however many you feel called to!
An example of my experience: One morning I asked, What do I need to know right now? I pulled a Butterfly, who’s key word was Breakthrough. I then felt called to ask, How can I prepare for this breakthrough? I then pulled the Otter, which was to be Grateful for all that I have in my life. I sat on that intention for the week.
