Read Preface


Using simple rituals—whose roots draw from shamanism, spirituality, religion, Native American studies, vibrational energy, and alternative medicine—becoming conscious of healing abilities is possible. This manual demonstrates not only how to gain the knowledge and wisdom afforded by various spirit beings, guides, and helpers, but also how to apply this knowledge in the natural world. Key diagnostic methods address specific ways to talk with plants and animals, understand what they say and how they say it, and how harmony, healing, and wholeness may be attained in both urban and rural settings. Visualization, prayer, and other techniques for accessing the vibration rates and consciousness of living things are also explored.


"Healing Plants and Animals From a Distance is filled with wisdom about healing the earth and ourselves. Jim Ewing writes with deep compassion and love. I found this book very healing in just reading it. It is filled with tools to support our spiritual healing work."

-- Sandra Ingerman, author of Soul Retrieval and How to Heal Toxic Thoughts


"Healing Plants and Animals from a Distance is, itself, the essence of what it speaks of: balance, harmony, healing. For those versed in shamanic ways, Author Jim PathFinder Ewing provides new meaning, new heart. For those not so acquainted, Ewing adeptly bridges ancient and modern perspectives in a very accessible way for the reader. This is a timely book, as all humans need to re-evaluate our relationship with the planet. Time is running short. We need to reverse our thinking. We need to act differently. I invite you to take a memorable Thunderbird ride to do just that, to awaken to a more complete relationship with yourself, others, and Earth."

-- Ken Eagle Feather, author of On the Toltec Path

This is a book that I feel belongs in everyone's library...especially people who are involved in healing work or would like to experience more of a connection with their own spirit and the living world around us. This book taught me a lot about how to REALLY listen and tune in...and how to develop strong caring, compassion and respect for the other beings who share my space. There are a lot of wonderful healing techniques and stories that you won't find in other books on similar topics that make this book inspiring and very enjoyable. The down-to-earth tone the author used in writing this book makes it very engaging and approachable... What else could I say...I highly recommend it!

Mr. Ewing has a wonderful way of putting spirituality into writing. This book isn't just about healing from a distance but healing in general and, I think, mostly about healing ourselves. Seek God, find yourself! What a concept, huh? Great book!

PathFinder has produced a wonderful work that comes from a quiet place in the heart. So many of us are so out of touch with all of the natural goings on around us. We forget that if we are quiet we can learn from everything that Nature provides for us. This book prepares the reader to open his heart and mind to learning from and giving back to the Natural world we live in. I enourage readers to read this book and then find time to spend quiet in some natural setting. Practice what is taught here and you will find that your perspective of yourself, everyone else and nature will change. You will find you appreciate those "little" things much more. I see a squirrel bouncing across my telephone line. He beckens me to come and play in the snow. Enjoy this book.



The Indian prefers the soft sound of the wind darting over the face of the pond, the smell of the wind itself cleansed by a midday rain. . . . The air is precious to the red man, for all things are the same breath - the animals, the trees, the man.

-Chief Seattle

Suquamish 1786–1866

Traditional Native Americans speak of the plant and animal “nations” because it gives respect to plants and animals, by recognizing their sovereignty.  Each plant, each animal, has its own being, its own life and its own purpose in the scheme of Creation, is loved by Creator and has Creator within it, the spark of life, or “good medicine” that makes it so.  The classes of plants and animals all have their rights and responsibilities, their reasons for being and their authority to be here.

This understanding of nature is quite different from the Western view where we speak of man vs. nature, or “the environment,” as if it was something separate from us.

In a balanced view of the world, we do not have “dominion” over plants and animals; we coexist with them. We are related to them; and we honor and respect the sacredness of their lives and being, as we honor our own life and being. We acknowledge that we cannot live upon this Earth without them – for our food, shelter, clothing, medicines – and never lose sight of this important relationship especially when we must kill them. We are all Children of Earth & Sky; to lose sight of this fact diminishes our own sacredness.
