Notes

White Bear notes that working with the Little People can be a strain. "...he said that the path has been difficult. The two decades of interaction with spirits has been so psychologically stressful for him that it has almost killed him before, and he knew others who had a similar gift who had gone insane. He said his spiritual experiences are “too intense, too strange for most people"[2]

"White Bear often refers to the spirits he has contact with as animal spirits. But he explained they are not really animals but wise energy entities."[3]
