naomi mcdonald animal communicator shamantic practitioner

Hello! Welcome to Words That Work, I’m Naomi and I’m glad you’re here.


As an author, I use words to transport a reader or listener to colorful new places and experiences, to entertain, and leave them with bits of wisdom for tomorrow.

As an animal communicator I use my intuitive ability to help humans and their animals understand each other on the deepest level. I’m dedicated to promoting balance, compassion, and harmony among all beings.

As a light body worker, shaman, and teacher, I use my intuitive ability and words to help my clients to end self-sabotaging beliefs and to find peace, abundance, and happiness in the world by recognizing the beauty and light within all of us.

Confession: I love epic fantasy novels, dancing, bicycling, and seeing others awaken their soul’s purpose and find freedom as they blossom into the highest aspect of themselves.

And Weddings, I’m a licensed minister and I love creating unique powerful ceremonies. Ceremonies that personally convey the bond and love between two individuals.

Naomi McDonald

As a certified Shamanic practitioner, professional animal communicator, and author I am dedicated and committed to promoting balance, compassion, integrity, and love among all beings.  I take great joy in helping humans and their pets connect and understand each other on a deeper level. The more connected we are with the natural world the more we all can live in harmony and peace.

I strive to live each day in right relationship with all beings and to help my clients also live this way. With this in mind, my book Away to Me My Love chronicles a plethora of life enriching principals that I learned through my incredible dog Luke. My wish is that our journey together will show that even the most ordinary of women can embark on the most extraordinary experience of self-discovery and growth.

I invite you to email me at or call 918/625-7901 to discuss any issues you and/or your companion animals are experiencing or your interest in learning animal communication.

Love & blessings to all,

Naomi McDonald

They Sing To Our Souls: The Animals Speak

Sometimes the most powerful understanding comes from someone short, brown, feathered and beautiful. “Thank you very much, and I do like French fries,” said Mrs. Duck politely. It wasn’t long into Naomi McDonald’s twenty-year career as an animal communicator that she recognized her feathered, scaled, and furry friends were bringing to the world more depth and wisdom than it seemed like on the surface. Naomi’s compendium of life changing stories, They Sing To Our Souls: The Animals Speak, not only shows readers that we all have the have the intuitive ability to deepen the connection with our pets, she shows us that by doing so we align ourselves to the entire natural world.
Fans of the Chicken Soup series will delight in these life enriching stories.

“These stories will have your soul singing too. Soul expansion, beyond the veil of human and animal connection with accounts of spiritual messages, healing, and the deepest dive into your heart. If you have ever experienced the love of an animal, this book will have you fascinated at the deep bonds, healing, and significance that loving an animal brings into your life. The stories Naomi shares will have your heart leaping and your soul soaring as she takes you behind the veils of the true love and joy our animals ignite within us and the unique roles they play in our lives. An added bonus, the alternative healing methods and connection techniques.”

Away to Me, My Love: A Sheepdog’s Tale of Two Lives

By Naomi McDonald

Away to Me, My Love:
A Sheepdog’s Tale of Two Lives

In Naomi Brenda McDonald’s new book, Away to Me, My Love she impulsively buys a “shy” Border collie pup named Luke, and believes it’s fate. However, puppy Luke shows no signs of herding instinct, and a trainer tells her to put him down. At every juncture, Naomi must decide whether or not to abandon her dream of entering herding competitions with her beloved dog. Despite her earnest desire to enter this new, exciting world with respect and belonging, she inadvertently makes an enemy who can change everything for her and for her beloved Luke. When Naomi has a vision of a past life, she realizes her journey with Luke involves more than meets the eye, more than she ever imagined. With the help of a medicine woman, Naomi learns that Luke is her teacher, not only for herding competitions but also for a spiritual journey that would take her into the world of shamanic healing, animal communication, and spiritual beings most people cannot see.

“A real life story about Naomi and her sheepdog, Luke. It made me laugh and cry at the same time. This book is not only a pleasure to read but also has to offer great lessons in life that can help you master your own.”
