It happened again today dear human…

I broke down in tears after a devastating session with a client who had lost the love of his life and best friend.

During our afterlife session, the departed dog told me he tried repeatedly to let his grieving dad know he was right by his side.

The grief was too much for his human caretake to bear and none of the dog’s desperate messages were heard.

Despite our best efforts, the dog and I gave up.

Grief had won.

There was total emptiness and a gaping wound left behind.

Don’t let this happen to you.

 

Your loved ones are there by your side and won’t miss any part of your life.

“Dear Human,
It happened again today
I nestled in right by your side
and lovingly watched over you while you slept

I nudged you gently a few times
but you barely stirred

When you awoke, I circled joyously around your feet
I smiled at you with my eyes
then watched as you gathered your things and left for work

My loving energy surrounded you as you drove down the road
and I place my head tenderly upon your arm

For a moment you thought of me
and I felt your heart fill with sorrow

I tried again to let you know I was right there
right by your side
but you pushed thoughts of me away
as the pain was too deep

I wish you knew that when you feel sad
so too do I
and when you feel joy
So too do I

I kept a constant vigil throughout the day
and waited patiently for you to remember me
and all the fun times we shared

Instead, I watched helplessly
as feelings of guilt and regret overcame you
and tears filled your eyes

Just know I will never judge you for helping me leave when my body failed
In my mind, you gave me the ultimate gift of love

I am alive and well in spirit
and I hunger for just one moment of your time
When you think of me with love and joy
and celebrate the life we shared

I will try again tomorrow
and the next day, and the next

Remember, dear human, that our souls are connected for eternity
as the bonds of love never die”

I’m Right Here…Leaving you Signs

 

Has this happened to you?

 

You walk past the window and see something on the glass.

What you see takes your breath away.

You take a closer look only to find a nose print from your departed companion animal.

 

You know with certainty that you cleaned that glass just the other day.

At that moment, you feel a cool rush of air surround you.

You ask out loud…

Is that you?

While getting ready for work you notice a new scratch on the countertop and you instinctively run your finger across it.

You realize it isn’t a scratch at all.

It’s a perfect whisker lying right where your angel used to sit every morning and wait for you to turn on the water.

There are no other cats in your home and you just recently cleaned and scoured the whole bathroom.

Suddenly, you feel something brush up against you.

You glance down but nothing is there.

You ask out loud…

Is that you?

 

You get up early to go for a run and put on your favorite pair of running shoes.

Something catches your eye as you tie your shoes.

Just lying in plain sight where you walked numerous times is a white feather.

You don’t have any birds or feather pillows.

Instantly, you hear the sound of toenails on the floor but no other pets are in the house.

You ask out loud…

Is that you?

 

You’ve been holding your breath since your angel took their last one.

You haven’t been ready to face the truth.

It suddenly becomes very real. They are physically gone from your life.

 

It’s been seven weeks, four days, and an excruciating sixteen hours since you said goodbye…

 

Every day seems like it is harder to cope with your loss than the day before.

It has been one of the most difficult things you’ve ever been through.

Love doesn’t end so the pain seems endless.

 

But now you know your angel is right here.

They’ve been there all along.

 

By your side.

 

Make them a promise that you will always appreciate the precious signs they send.

Never doubt them or say it’s just a coincidence.

 

Your two hearts still beat as one.

And they always will.

 

Please share your experience below.

What signs and messages have you received?

Time…It is all your pets want from you

Time.

It is the ONE THING your pet wants from you.

Giving your time is giving affection and attention.

I heard this so many times during the sessions I conducted.

It was heartbreaking to hear how many departed pets felt their parents/guardians were too busy or that they felt they had to rally for their attention or affection.

I know it can be tough with families, careers, and well…life.

You do your best but sometimes you do not give them the TIME they deserve and crave.

Then ironically, when they leave you…

you wish for more TIME with them.

TIME is precious.

It is all we have.

Make each moment count.

Spend TIME with them now. Give them the ONE THING they want more than anything else.

Take lots of photos of the two of you together.

Life can change in a heartbeat and if there is one thing we cannot do…

We cannot turn back TIME…

but we can make each day with our furry (scaled or winged) best friend the best day ever!

 

If you had one more hour or one more day with your departed pet…

What would you do together?

When is the Right Time to Euthanize?

When is the Right Time to Euthanize?

 

Caring for an aging pet is both a blessing and a challenge rolled into one.

First, it is an honor to have a pet reach their senior years in your care. That means you’ve done a great job.

On the other hand, it can be full of challenges as you balance medications, treatments, vet appointments, or costly procedures.

Whatever your situation is the day will likely come when you are faced with that impossible decision…

“When is the right time to euthanize?”

Some say we should not end our pet’s lives. That we should let Mother Nature take its course.

Others say it is our responsibility to keep our beloved pets from suffering in a body that is failing.

Personally, I choose to help my pets leave their bodies when they are no longer able to enjoy their life. I base this on experiences in the past but also on what the animals have shared with me over the years.

Dying is usually a painful process. There is a struggle involved in most situations. The will to survive runs deep so animals will struggle to stay alive. It is their natural instinct.

In certain instances, such as a massive heart attack, the soul leaves the body and there is not much if any type of struggle.

Some pets will die peacefully in their sleep. I’ve always wished that for mine but it has yet to happen.

I’m not here to judge your decision but keep in mind the following…

 

The 10 Most Important Aging Facts Animals Shared:

1. When you stress, worry, or have anxiety about your pet they sense that and they can be adversely affected

2. If you can’t be with your pet during euthanasia or if they die without you it is never too late to say goodbye…they feel your love and don’t ever mention that you abandoned them

3. Animals see themselves as perfect even when they are missing an eye, a leg, or have other serious medical conditions.

4. Stay focused on the outcome or goal you want to achieve not their illness or issue

5. Most pets do not want to prolong their life with ongoing painful procedures.

6. Pets don’t seem to care what happens to their remains. If it makes you happy, that makes them happy

7. Pets do not fear dying. It is natural to them.

8. They need you to manage their pain or discomfort. When it cannot be managed help them transition.

9. That is worth repeating: Pets do not want to live in pain. They prefer quality over quantity.

10. Living a long life is a human concept. Animals do not count years.

Your job is to care for them and make sure they are comfortable.

We are not always meant to heal or cure them.

 

The end of your pet’s life and those painful decisions are part of your spiritual experience to learn and grow…

I don’t know about you but I have found that the older I get the harder it is to say goodbye.

Perhaps it is my thoughts about my own mortality as I get older…

Perhaps I am realizing that life goes by so incredibly fast…

Perhaps I am realizing that we only have so much time with them…

Some signs to watch for:

  1. Your pet cannot easily manage its daily life without pain or discomfort
  2. Lack of  interest in food, treats, or toys
  3. Lack of a spark
  4. Lethargic
  5. They seem distant, disconnected, almost ‘out of body’ at times
  6. Obvious mobility issues, balance issues, or trouble breathing
  7. Whining, crying, whimpering, limping, yowling, and a sense of despondency
  8. Your vet recommends euthanasia

It is never an easy decision but when you make that choice with love in your heart and the best of intentions for your beloved pet they know that and will never judge you.

 

So, I ask you…what brought you to your decision? How did you know it was time to say goodbye?

Until We Meet Again – Just on the other side of The Rainbow Bridge

 

Just on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge, a joyous reunion awaits you

All of your beloved and precious angels will be right there waiting for you when your time arrives.  Few words come close to describing the joy and immense love that gathers among all of our departed loved ones when we return back ‘home’ again.

While the Rainbow Bridge may be a fictional place the reality is the animals have described something very similar to me during sessions. They share intense love, vibrant colors, an incredible sense of peace, comfort, and pure bliss. So I firmly believe there is such a place that we will one day return to. This joyful paradise is all around us in a parallel world where we recharge our souls and continue to grow on a spiritual level.

The animals have told me that part of our soul remains on the Other Side and when our time to leave this Earth arrives we are finally ‘whole’ again. We return to our source our Creator and the part of our soul that stayed behind. We are complete. We also reconnect with all of our loved ones and beloved animal companions.

There is nothing that will keep you from your angels as you are true soulmates and the bonds of love never die.

Who is waiting for you?

I have lost track of how many precious animal companions are waiting for me on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge but I know it will be the best reunion ever!

As your time approaches, your soul group receives an energetic message that it is time to gather. You may have heard about patients on their death beds describing loved ones gathering around them. It happens all the time. My grandmother left this Earth smiling as she began to see her departed loved ones surrounding her in the hospital.

There is no linear time on the Other Side so it is literally just a drop in the bucket of time for us to join all of our departed loved ones in spirit. So until you meet again know in your heart that your precious angels are safe, happy, and patiently awaiting a joyous reunion with you.

Share how many angels are waiting for you in the comments below.

I think I’m way over 30 pets waiting…and counting. So much love though…so much love

When Your Pet Visits from the Afterlife

Has your departed pet ‘visited’ you? Maybe you felt them walk across the bed or you sensed their warmth near you. Maybe you heard them walk across the floor or the jingle of the tags on their collar.

Afterlife visits are always positive, loving, and vivid…

A real visitation will be an incredibly memorable experience especially if you were visited while you slept. Your departed pet will choose a time when you are most open to receiving their messages and that is usually in the late hours in the evening or early morning hours of sleep.

You will wake up feeling like you actually held them or were greeted enthusiastically by them. It will be so vivid you may even look around the house just to make sure they didn’t reappear!

A real visitation is a beautiful reunion of your two souls…

It will never be a negative experience or a replay of a traumatic event. Those disturbing dreams are your subconscious mind working through grief, remorse, or other emotions after a loss.

I’ve had many clients reach out to me after experiencing a nightmarish dream involving their departed pet. They worry that their pet is in pain or lost on the Other Side and they feel utterly distraught and helpless. I reassure them that they do not need to worry one bit about their pets on the Other Side. There is only the purest love-filled beauty in the afterlife.

So rest assured, your departed pets are safe, happy, and balanced in the afterlife. Your souls will continue to meet during your dreams even if you don’t remember them. If you are lucky enough to remember these incredible visitations be sure to thank your pet and ask them to visit again soon.

Your departed pet can be anywhere in the Universe and beyond and they choose to be with you. That’s pretty special don’t you think? If you haven’t had a visitation that you remember don’t be too upset. Your pet is likely around all the time so it is more difficult to sense their presence.

Ask them for an obvious sign and be sure to let them know you will honor every message they send you.

Getting a message from a departed loved one is joy and a blessing but what do you do if you have a negative entity near you? What does that feel like? How do you get rid of them?

You May Be the ‘Problem’ in Your Pet’s ‘Behavior Problem’

Is Your Pet Behaving badly?

YOU may be the problem, not your pet

If your pet is acting out or misbehaving ask yourself these three questions:

1) Am I expecting my pet to ‘figure out’ what I want?
2) Am I sending confusing messages of what I DON’T WANT to my pet?
3) Am I stressed out about other things that my pet may be picking up on?

If you answered, ‘Yes’ to any of these you may be the problem, not your pet.

1) Set your pet up for success. Don’t leave it up to them to ‘know’ what you want or ‘figure it out’. They are animals, not humans. Provide the environment they need for the end result you want. I’ve had many clients say, ‘They know they aren’t supposed to be on the kitchen counter.’ Okay, not really. What they ‘know’ is you leave them in a room where they can get up on the counter where there are yummy things to eat which is a powerful motivator to do what you have set them up to do. What they ‘know’ is you get upset and react to them when they jump on the counter but they don’t understand how the two things connect. They don’t reason like humans.  They do things because you allow them to and expect them to ‘figure it out’.

2) You may be sending mixed messages to your pet which can confuse them and make matters worse. If your pet is destroying things or not using the litter box your thoughts are real messages and when you think about what they have done in the past that goes out to them. Imagine how confused your pet is when they get reprimanded for doing exactly what you envisioned! Think about what you want not what you don’t want.

3) Pets are the barometers of our life. If you are happy so are they. If your home is balanced so are they. If you are nervous, anxious, stressed, sick, scared, etc your pet will absorb that energy and likely act out. All they know is your energy is unbalanced. They don’t understand it is your job or your kids or the bills.

For the best results, do this:

Are You Selfishly Keeping Your Departed Pet Near?

 

"Am I being selfish? I don't want my pet's soul to leave me..."

It was a painful email message from a grief-stricken pet parent, Larissa.

The love of her life, Maisey, had just transitioned after a long, happy life together.

Larissa was broken from the pain and felt like she was sabotaging her beloved dog's journey by begging for signs she was okay and still near.

"I don't feel anything. It's like I'm dead without her. I am numb from the pain. I beg her every day to give me some kind of sign. Is it selfish of me to keep her here? Is it wrong for me to not want her to soul to leave me? I can't bear the thought of going through the rest of my life without her face. I miss her so much."

It is devastating to think our pets are gone forever.

But that just isn't what I have been shown in thousands upon thousands of sessions with departed pets.

Your pets are still with you and will always be near. You cannot sabotage your pet's spiritual journey. Their souls have a purpose and being with you is part of that purpose even from the Other Side.

Some may stay near and others may have other tasks ahead that take them into other realms or levels of the afterlife but the bonds of love will always tie you together.

Nothing you can do or say will steer them off course...

In fact, quite the opposite is true. Your departed pets love the attention and the positive energy you send then when you remember your life together. They are drawn to your powerful thoughts and images when you think about your happy memories together. More than anything, they want you to know they are alive and well in spirit and the bonds of love will never end. Ever.

No amount of begging, pleading, or wishing will alter a pet on their soul's path. They are powerful spiritual beings with a divine purpose in life.

They honor us with their love and devotion in days past, today, tomorrow, and all the days ahead.

Please share your comments below. I appreciate each one and will always reply.

Are You Sending Agonizing Messages to Your Pet?

If you have lost a beloved pet then you know the heartache that follows.

Just remember, you signed up to experience everything with your animal companions which includes losing them. I'm sure you would go through it all again and endure the pain from grief just to have them in your life. I know I would. In a heartbeat. Yes, it hurts so bad when they die but keep in mind your beloved pet is sharing a very sacred moment with you.

The end of life for your pet is as precious as the moment they are born...

To experience the final moments is deeply special. A combination of love, trust, and total devotion you both have for each other. When possible, help them make their transition out of their body calmly, with love and dignity, just as when they were born.

Yes, it hurts, it hurts beyond words. It is a crushing blow but you are one very lucky pet parent to share that sacred moment with them. In the wild, most animals retreat somewhere alone. So sharing their final hours with you is very sacred.

If you can't be with them in their final moments, they will understand.

Just tell them right now how you feel...

They will hear your words and know that you love them with your whole heart and soul and would have done everything to be there for them if you could. Don't dwell on it. I promise you they don't.

If an accident took them I promise you they will not blame you...

We blame ourselves for what happened but they don't see it that way. They know you love them above all else. That is all that matters. It comes down to the love you share. So as hard as it is to let go of the blame it is a useless waste of energy that you could be using right now to send them love-filled messages.

Flip it around for a moment and think about this:

If you were on the Other Side, which message would you rather get from the one you love the most?

An agonizing pain-filled message filled with guilt and remorse or a love-infused surge full of magical memories

 

In over 23 years, I have never had a single pet say their mom or dad ended their life. 

Let me repeat that: I have NEVER had a SINGLE pet say their mom or dad killed them. EVER!

In fact, I've never had a single session where the pet said that they were angry, upset, or blamed their beloved human caretakers.

Even in the worst abuse cases I've worked on the pets do not see things the way we do.

 

 

Your departed pet knows they can let go of anything that no longer serves them. 

They are far more intelligent than we give them credit for aren't they?

So, I ask you this...Are you ready to stop sending agonizing messages?

 

If yes, please post it below and state your promise in writing that you will do your best to send your departed pet only the most love-filled messages you can. Allow yourself time to grieve and honor the emotions but honor your pet too and send only the very best messages.

How Long Should I Wait After My Pet Dies to Communicate?

Recently, a client asked if there is a time frame to wait before communicating with a departed pet.

 

The answer is no.

 

Time as we know it does not exist in the afterlife. There are no clocks, no 24 hours days in linear form as we have here on Earth but keep this in mind:

 

The animals are usually in such bliss from the moment they leave their body as the nourishing love from the afterlife fills their soul. They feel exhilarated and limitless. They launch into higher realms and receive energetic refueling and can communicate immediately.

 

Some pets may want to explore their new environment and can be a bit distracted at first while others are content to reach out as soon as they can.

 

Humans on the other hand have a more difficult time after their pet dies. While you can send loving thoughts right away I recommend that you wait until you are emotionally calm and ready to bring positive energy to the session before you schedule a communication session.

<

Grief can cause mind-numbing pain to engulf us and that makes it difficult for messages to come through and very difficult for you to be open to receive. Grief shuts us down and makes it difficult to function on the simplest level. That heaviness from the pain of your loss can cause you to miss important messages that come through.

 

Departed humans souls are also quite ready to communicate upon leaving their bodies behind.

 

Keep in mind each soul is unique and some may be exploring the cosmos and distracted by the beautiful spirit realms.

 

There is no set time frame as time does not exist in the afterlife.

 

Each person is different each soul is different

 

To honor the departed in the highest and best way always bring calm and loving energy when you do connect.

Life Continues for Your Pet in the Afterlife…



 

 

When your pet leaves this Earthly plane...

You may wonder what happens when your pet dies and if they are okay and still near you.

Instantly, upon leaving their body they burst forth with brilliant light-filled energy as their soul ascends onto the spiritual plane. Few words can describe the intensity of the joy they feel. They are often met by your departed loved ones, both humans and animals, spirit guides, or angels as they explore their dazzling new loved-filled world.

There are a few things your pet experiences right away

With a loving guide by their side, they feel an overwhelming sense of joy and exhilaration all once. They report that their earthly pain, discomfort, or disease is immediately replaced with an invigorating youthful, vibrant soul-body, and any issues they had on Earth quickly melt away.

Your departed pet will never be lost, scared, or all alone.

The next thing they experience is how it feels to be a non-physical energetic being.  Think about the astronauts in the gravity chambers. Weightless and unencumbered by Earth's atmosphere and the laws of gravity they dart about in a cosmic burst of energy.

You may wonder what they do once they become non-physical and the answer is simple, anything they choose!

If they loved to run and play that is likely what they are doing. If they preferred to lounge around and nap on their favorite bed, then that is exactly what they will do. They check out their new surroundings with childlike wonder just as you will when you leave your body behind.

If images of rainbows, green fields, and sunlit skies bring some relief to your broken heart you can rest assured that the reality is they are usually content and joyfully watching over you from their favorite place. 


While their new energetic body can experience a multitude of spiritual adventures, there is one place in all the world where they spend most of their time. With you. 

​​You are the most important person in the world to your pet and there is nowhere else they would rather be.

Your pet can go anywhere they want and often tag along in the car, on vacation or wherever you go. Yet, they tell me they often follow the same routine they had with you here on Earth. Their experience is much different than ours. Their perspective is uplifting, positive, and full of love. You, on the other hand, are gripped by grief and the pain from your loss.

Your pet wants you to move into healing as soon as you are ready as they can feel your emotions and the pain from your grief. If you stay buried under a heavy blanket of grief your pets will not be harmed nor with their spiritual journey be affected but they truly benefit when you move into a healing space. In some cases, if you stay in your grief for too long, they can feel responsible for your pain.

The best thing you can do is to honor your feelings, as difficult as that can be. Within that space, celebrate their life and the time you shared. Make their life more important than their death. They don't want you to remember them in their worst moments. Picture them being happy, healthy, and whole as you take your first steps into healing.

One of My Favorite Sessions…

 

 

 

I have so many favorite moments from the pet sessions and afterlife sessions I have conducted but sometimes they literally blow my mind.

 

Here is one of my faves….

The video cuts off at 4:44 (Angels numbers!) but you’ll get the gist of what happened.

I’m so technologically challenged!

But it is AMAZING to hear this message and what it means!

Animals Help Solve Cold Cases

 

Can Animals Help Solve A Case?

It was during my law enforcement career that my psychic and intuitive abilities resurfaced. It was an awakening or a remembering of sorts. I was confused by the flood of information that I was receiving but fascinated at the same time.

 

I found out quite unexpectedly that pets on crime scenes could relay pertinent information about the events that took place before I arrived on the scene.

Their detailed information and ability to share images proved to be more reliable than most of the human eye-witnesses I  interviewed.

You can read more about how pets helped me solve cases in my book, The Amazing Afterlife of Animals too!

Graduation day!

Red Rocks Police Academy

September 2000

 

 

There was no substation for the Sheriff’s Office. We used our patrol cars as our ‘mobile offices’ with no computers or CAD systems.

We used a pen and piece of paper to log our calls for service.

Finally, the administration brought in an old single-wide trailer formerly used on a construction site with no restroom or running water as our temporary lodging.

We had to share metal desks, use antiquated computers with DOS programs on floppy discs to write our police reports and go next door into the Animal Control Facility to use the restroom.

Susie, the secretary in the photo with me was a chain smoker so the place constantly smelled like stale cigarettes.

Such luxury!

 

Front row kneeling down on the far left

That’s me at the shooting range during the Red Rocks police academy

 

Patrolling the burned-out area of the Hi Meadow fire with a fellow deputy aka ‘Tulip’.

We were rescuing horses from an area we were not supposed to be in

 

My first day off of training as a full-time deputy sheriff for Park County Sheriff’s Office in Bailey, Colorado.

My training officer took the photo at mile marker 221 on Highway 285 with our state of the art equipment, a Polaroid camera!

My patrol car was an old Jeep Cherokee with over 200k miles on it, a stick shift, which I had never driven before in a mountain district.

The emergency brake did not work and I had to put a block of wood behind the tire to keep it from rolling away.

With 20 lbs of gear and gross, polyester man-pants, I was going to save the world from crime!

Are You Punishing Yourself for Your Pet’s Death?

We are quick to blame ourselves when a pet dies

 

It is not uncommon to blame ourselves for our pet’s death even if they died from natural causes. Grief brings about all kinds of painful thoughts of what we could have done or should have done to prevent their death. Our thoughts surface immediately and point the blame directly at us.

 

When Accidents Happen…

Our ego wants to control that which we have no control over especially when accidents happen. We punish ourselves relentlessly and run the fateful scenario through our minds for days, weeks, or longer. Each time the pain goes deeper like a dagger plunging into your heart.

 

You may experience physical symptoms, insomnia, and depression.

It is a challenging and difficult time that none of us want to endure.

The key to releasing the stabbing pain of guilt is to practice releasing your ego

To understand how to release ego we have to have a clear understanding of what ego is. There are many definitions in the psychological arena and in the spiritual sense but here is an example:

 

Your ego is often defined as whatever comes to your mind when you think of yourself

The psychological definition includes your ideas about yourself, your beliefs, ideologies, social affiliations, desires, fears, and much more.

The spiritual definition includes a veil of thought that separates you from who you really are.

You are more than your body, more than your beliefs, more than your image.

You are a mighty and powerful spiritual being capable of anything you set your intention on accomplishing.

Am I normal to feel this way?

We instinctively search for answers or judge our actions when a pet dies. We are their caretakers and it is our job to make sure they are healthy and safe at all times. When something tragic happens we make ourselves the focus of everything that we feel went wrong. We start the cycle of guilt and we regret everything we did or didn’t do on the day of the incident. Our anger, pain, or blame can also be directed at the veterinarian, our loved ones, or even the pet that died.

Ego takes over our thoughts and we start a cycle of self-punishment

 

 

Is your ego in control of your thoughts?

To determine if your ego is in control ask yourself these questions:

 

 

If the answer is no then you are not responsible for their death.

Even if you knew in the back of your mind that you shouldn’t have done what you did that is ego trying to stay in the driver’s seat of your thoughts.

You are a victim of unfortunate circumstances brought about by an unplanned series of events.

You are no more responsible for your pet’s death then you are their birth

You spend your entire life caring for your pet. You have fed, bathed, clipped, medicated, hugged, loved, and snuggled with that pet and done everything in your power to give them a wonderful and loving home.

You are not an evil person deserving of punishment…

 

Ego is driving your guilt so it can stay in control of your life. When you release your ego, you release all the guilt associated with events that are unintentional.

You never intended to harm your pet nor did you wake up that day and decide to unlatch the gate which they escaped from.

You didn’t place them in front of the vehicle that hit them, nor did you place the poison/toxin in their mouth to ingest.

 

 

The more appropriate expression of your feelings may sound like this:

When you place the blame on yourself you place yourself in a state of eternal punishment and nothing will convince you that you are not guilty.

This endless circle of blame envelopes every thought and paralyzes your happiness.

You continually feel bad about the incident and the circle of devastation continues.

What can I do to release ego and pain?

You can start by saying these three simple words:

“I forgive myself.”

 

Feeling guilty does not serve you or your departed pet.

 

You can change your path of self-punishment

Positive affirmations allow you to shift your perspective and begin the journey into healing.

Say them often and say them out loud.

Be patient. It takes time to work through grief.

Post little notes around your home or in your car.

Only you can change your thoughts and stop punishing yourself…

 

 

 

If you aren’t ready to say these words out loud, ‘I am not guilty for the death of my pet,’ then it may be time to seek professional help from a certified grief counselor.

Be gentle with yourself.

If an accident happened you are a victim of unfortunate circumstances

You suffered a loss

You deserve love

Don’t allow your guilt to extinguish your life – You deserve to live a full and happy life

After conducting thousands of afterlife sessions with departed pets not one time has a pet told me that their human caretaker was responsible for their death. Nor have they said their life was ended too soon. The majority of pets say they were ready to go sooner than later as we tend to keep them here longer for our own sake.

Our self-punishment is completely unnecessary and only fuels our ego to continue to torture our soul.

 

You are a wonderful, caring, loving pet parent and your pet loves you and knows you would never harm them.

Start your journey into healing now…Say these words, “I forgive myself…and set myself free.”

The 7 Myths About Pet Loss Grief

 

The final moments with your pet have come and gone and now grief sets in…

Even though grief is a universal reaction to any kind of loss it can be surrounded by misconceptions and myths. Here are seven of the most common myths about grief from the loss of a pet and explanations to help loosen the grip of grief and move into healing.

Myth #1 – I should have known something was wrong and acted sooner

Fact: Animals are biologically pre-programmed to hide pain, illness, or disease unless you are trained to identify the subtle signs. It is a survival instinct ingrained in their DNA. Your role is caretaker, not necessarily healer. Your task is to provide them with the best life you can and to love them fiercely. You cannot know what the end looks like for your pet any more than you can know what your own end of life looks like. Guilt can feel overwhelming and you may feel like you are drowning in pain. Do the best you can with the highest and best of intentions for your pet.

Myth #2 – I killed my pet. I am playing God and have no right to do so.

Fact: Your pets want a good quality of life, not a long life filled with pain and discomfort. They don’t deserve prolonged suffering and pain. Euthanasia can be a gift in which you can halt suffering. Facing the choice of euthanasia can be one of the worst and most difficult choices a pet parent may ever have to make, but at times it shows the immense love and compassion shared. It is a selfless act when you want to hold on but know that your pets deserve more, no matter how painful it is to let go.

Myth #3 – It is selfish to euthanize my pet

Fact: Euthanasia is a compassionate and humane way to end the intense suffering or declining quality of life of your companion animal. Viewed in this context, it would be selfish to unnecessarily prolong the suffering of a seriously ill or injured animal. When your pet cannot eat, drink, or manage themselves in their daily habits it is not fun for them to be in a body that is failing them. Ask yourself this: Whose needs and best interests are being served – you or your animal companion? It is selfish to keep them here just because you are not ready to say goodbye.

Myth #4 – Intense grief is a sign of weakness, poor character, and I shouldn’t be this upset it was just a pet

Fact:  Anyone who tells you that is being judgmental, extremely inconsiderate, and they are of poor character, not you. Experiencing powerful feelings of distress over the loss of a beloved animal companion is normal and healthy. People who have strong feelings about the loss of a pet have those deep feelings because they are capable of intimate attachments and deep emotional bonding. This is something to be proud of, not a sign of weakness or poor character.

Myth #5 – Pet loss is insignificant compared to the loss of human life

Fact: The loss of a beloved animal companion can be even more emotionally devastating than the loss of a human friend or relative. You spend more time with your pets than you do with most of the people in your life. Your pets are always happy to see you, excited to be with you, they don’t set out to hurt you, cheat on you, or betray you in any way. They are the purest and most loving relationship that many of us ever experience in our lives. Our relationships with other humans can be loving and passionate but also disjointed and unhealthy. Losing a pet is like losing your best friend. It is just as significant of a loss, if not more, than losing a human loved one.

Myth #6 – No one understands my pain or what I’m going through

Fact: While grief is a personal journey and no one can feel the pain and loss you feel for your pet there are many others who have had similar experiences with their pets. Holding on to your pain or trying to ignore it can lead to unsolved grief and create havoc in your life. Find healthy ways to express your feelings in a safe and supportive environment to move into a place of healing. Reach out to grief support groups or licensed grief support professionals to help you navigate through your feelings.

Myth #7 – I’m never getting another pet. This was just too painful.

Fact: Yes, it is painful to lose a beloved companion there is no doubt about it. However, your departed pets want you to be happy and live a full and complete life. Your happiness directly affects your departed pet as they are still with you and sharing your energy. When you open your heart and home to a new companion, the love you show that new companion will have a positive effect on your departed pet. They will feel the love that you are sharing with your new companion. Don’t worry about them feeling jealous or that you are replacing them. Those are human concerns and I have never had a single pet tell me they were upset about a new addition to the family. Quite the contrary, in fact.

Grief is a natural response to the loss of a companion animal. It is part of the experience you and your pet were meant to share together. Your grief is uniquely your own and while no one can feel what you are feeling there are many of us who have also experienced a painful loss.

Allow yourself plenty of time to experience all of the emotions from grief. There are no shortcuts through the pain. It is a reflection of deep, true love to mourn so deeply. You will know you are on the road to healing when you think of your pet and happy memories come to mind. When you no longer feel the sadness or the tears just the good times you shared. Consider yourself fortunate to have shared your life with a companion pet who was so very hard to say goodbye to.

I truly believe we never get over the loss of a beloved pet but we somehow get through it. We learn how to live our lives without them by celebrating the memories and making their life more important than their death.

Remember, you are and always have been the most important person in the world to your pet and even after they leave their physical body behind, there is nowhere else they would rather be than with you.

The Most Surprising Messages from Departed Pets

I have to share this with you because every once in a while the animals will blow my mind with the messages they share.

Dee contacted me after she read my book, The Amazing Afterlife of Animals, as she was still grieving the loss of her two-year-old lab Duke who died tragically young from bloat. Sadly, Duke was alone at a boarding facility when he passed and Dee felt guilty for not being there to help him.

Duke’s energy came through happy as ever and chatting away about something with a leopard print on it.

Dee was shocked! She was sitting on her bed during our phone call next to a leopard print blanket!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next to the bed was Duke’s toy duck that also had leopard print

 

 

 

 

and her bathrobe which was hanging on the bedpost was…(take a guess)...leopard print!

Dee’s email after the session says it all:

You provided so much comfort to me relaying information from my sweet boy, Duke.  I have been riddled with guilt but you have given me a breath of fresh air finally in the midst of this! You have a true gift and a blessing from God and I am so thankful I was led to you! I do believe it was divine intervention or as you said, Duke led you to me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You have the sweetest, kindest personality and are truly blessed with the most wonderful gifts! I am so glad and grateful to have you now as a dear friend!”

I’m just the messenger in this lifetime so I make sure I share everything that comes through because I never know what is going to be that one message that you need to hear from your beloved pet.

Sometimes it is the most seemingly insignificant message that means the most!

When a Pet Grieves the Loss of Another Pet

What happens to your pets when a companion animal dies?

The loss of a beloved family pet can overwhelm everyone in the household.  Your remaining pets can also be deeply affected by the loss of a companion animal. They may show immediate signs of depression or other behavioral changes. Some pets become so despondent, they die soon after their companion of what seems like a broken heart. Although it is not intentional, their needs are often overlooked as you struggle through your own painful feelings of grief. With just a few simple steps you can help your remaining pets understand what happened to their best friend so you can all move through your grief and into healing.

What are the signs of pet grief?

After a pet dies, the hierarchy within the home shifts as the remaining pets adjust to the loss. Some pets will react immediately to the loss of a companion animal while others carry on as if nothing happened.  Some pets will suddenly lose interest in food or treats while others will hide or sulk around in a sorrowful way. Many grieving pets will whine, meow, or yowl as they search the house looking for their companion who suddenly disappeared. If the pet that died was more dominant or self-confident the remaining pet can become fearful of things that never bothered them before. If your pets were together for a long time their grief may be more pronounced lasting for days, months, or longer. There are many signs of grief but listed below are a few of the most common behavioral changes.

Signs your pet may be grieving:

 

 

 

 

How to help your pets understand the loss of a companion animal

Our remaining pets are often excluded from the final moments of another pet’s passing. Many become confused about what happened to their companion as they are not able to see the body after death. In the wild, animals inspect the body of their companion which provides closure and an understanding that the life force of the animal is gone. But what happens if you are not able to let them inspect the body? What else can you do?

The best way to help your pet understand what happened is to talk about it. When you communicate openly with your pet, images will flash across your mind as you speak. Those images play like a mini-movie in your head and your pets will be able to intercept those images. Hearing your voice and watching the images will give them a better sense of the changes that have taken place. Speak slowly and softly as you would to a child of about nine or ten years of age. Another option is to allow the remaining pet to inspect a towel or blanket with the deceased pet’s scent on it. Ideally, try to give your remaining pet the opportunity to sense their companion has died.

The 8 steps to help your grieving pet heal faster

 

 

 

Would it help to get another pet?

Every situation is different so decide wisely before bringing a new pet into your home. Some pets are very excited about a new companion while others are not. If the resident pet is older, weaker, or not in the best of health then it may be best to leave well enough alone and not add any new pets to the household.  However, a new pet can breathe new life and laughter into a depressing situation and draw some pets out of their grief. Be mindful that a new pet will change the energy within the household and care should be taken to make sure the new pet is a good match for your family. Trust your intuition and if it feels right then it will likely be okay. If it doesn’t feel right, then wait for a better time.

Openly express your feelings 
The best way to help your remaining pet is to openly share your feelings. If you are sad and missing your other pet, tell them exactly how you feel. They may not understand all the details about what happened but hearing your words will ease their mind and help them heal faster. Although it is a painful and difficult time, honor your grief and allow yourself to feel all of your emotions.  As you move through your grief into healing your pets will likely do so too. They can absorb your emotions like a sponge and will naturally feel more balanced when you do. Watch your pet closely and consult with a trusted veterinarian if their condition continues or worsens.

Embrace every precious moment

When you are ready, celebrate your memories of the pet you lost and remember to make their life more important than their death. Your remaining pet will feel the love in your heart and know that their beloved companion has left this life with dignity and peace.

Can Your Pet Detect Your Illness?

I had a session with Judy and her beautiful, fluffy kitty named, Fudge.  We were supposed to check in on him and see how he was doing as he was adopted about eight months ago.

I’m doing great,” he confidently announced to me, “but my mom has something wrong with her.”

At that moment Fudge sent me an image that I use to represent a human’s immune system.  I often ask animals to send me the image of something if they don’t know what it is.

In this case, I saw an outline of Judy’s body with cells attacking. Similar to this photo.

I told Judy what Fudge said along with the image of her immune system being attacked and she quickly changed the subject.

We finished up the session and didn’t hear back from her until just the other day.

I can’t believe this, Karen.” she said. “When we had the session with Fudge I was in the midst of a lot of my own health issues.  I actually adopted him to help me ease the pain/spasms that were affecting me.  I was so afraid I had cancer or some other terminal disease and I didn’t want to talk about it during that session.  I went to all kinds of specialists and had every test you can think of but they were all inconclusive.

I just received the diagnosis and it came back as Lupus.”

Judy was shocked that Fudge knew this six months ago. Her own doctors did not even know what was wrong with her.  She only had Fudge for a couple of months at that time.

“He has been such a blessing to me.  Not only as a friend and companion, but we are so bonded even though it hasn’t been that long.  We were meant to be together.”

I am constantly amazed at what the animals know about us.  Fudge did not understand the complexities of the Lupus disease in medical terms but he knew something was wrong.  His close bond with his new mom prompted him to share his concerns with me.

Now that’s a beautiful love story.

Tangerine the Tabby and the Toothpaste that Brought Her Mom Happy Tears

Losing a beloved pet is absolutely heartbreaking. Because we share an unconditional bond of love with our pets, we’re often closer to them than many of our family members. When pets die, many people fear they will never see their beloved friends again. I want to reassure you that your pet is with you always, even though you don’t know it. I do.

Over the past 2 decades, I’ve been blessed to have had the blissful experience of being able to communicate with thousands of pets bringing peace to their people. What I have learned from all those experiences is that,

1. You have always been and will always be the most important person in the world to your pet.
2. Your pet is often right by your side because that is where they most want to be.

Those are universal truths that I am privileged to see evidence of on a daily basis.

On one of my recent calls, a woman named Cathy contacted me because her precious cat, Tangerine had just passed away. As soon as I opened her email and saw the beautiful orange tabby’s photo, Tangerine asked me to tell Cathy, “toothpaste.”

Animals transmit their thoughts in pictures and words. Their messages will often be very specific proving to their family that they are right by their side. Oftentimes those little rascals leave me in the dark until I share their thoughts with their family.

As soon as I mentioned ‘toothpaste,’ Cathy burst into happy tears and I heard her exhale a sigh of relief. She told me that just before our session she was on line at the supermarket, buying toothpaste. When she noticed the man ahead of her buying cat food, a wave of grief swept over her as she wondered if she would ever see her precious Tangerine again. Now she knows he’s right by her side always.

Have you been missing your precious pet? I can help you.

The Hardest Part of Having a Pet is Saying Goodbye

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is no greater pain than the loss of a loved one. Our pets are family and losing them is so hard.

We often wonder what happens when they die and leave their bodies. Is it the end? Is there an afterlife?

When the pain overwhelms you remember this….

The afterlife is real.

It exists.

There is life after life in spiritual form.

Your pets and departed loved ones are always near you as there is nowhere else they would rather be.

Have you received a message from the Other Side?

Our animal companions often come to us in our dreams or we get a sense that they are near. You may hear something like their collar, a meow or a scratch at the door. You may feel something like a pet brush up against you or walk across the bed. You may see something out of the corner of your eye.

FACTS:

They can hear your thoughts.

They can feel your emotions.

They rest in their favorite spots.

They play with their favorite toys.

Their energy is all around you.

If you do get a message:

Thank them and ask them to do it again!

Don’t brush it off as coincidence they are trying to hard to let you know they are near.

Say their name often. Say it out loud. They love it when you do this! It makes them light up like a Christmas tree!

Invite them, by name, to send you more messages. Be specific when you do this. You don’t want to invite anyone but your beloved.

A Deceased Dog’s Heartbreaking Message to his Dad

A deceased chihuahua mix named Buster kept showing me a handwritten letter during a session with his grieving dad, Jim.
 
"Did you write a letter?" I asked, not knowing what the message meant. "Buster keeps showing me a handwritten letter of some kind."
 
"I did," came the sobs from the heartbroken man. "I tried to kill myself after he died. I felt so guilty for his death. I wrote a suicide note. He slipped through his collar and ran into oncoming traffic. He died before my eyes. He saw me write that note?"
 
"Yes, he did," I answered quietly.
 
The little dog's energy was around his dad after he died as there is nowhere else he would rather be.
Buster also brought Jim's mom's energy through as they were together on the Other Side.
One message can make all the difference in the world.
Your departed pets love you and want you to heal as soon as you can.
They want you to live a full and happy life.

Are You Missing Messages From Your Pet?

 

 

 

 

Our pets communicate with us every day. Or I should say they try to communicate with us every day.

Most of the time we tune them out or brush off their messages as coincidence or we think our imaginations are running wild.

Are You Missing Messages?

Your pet may be trying to convey an important message such as they are sick, bored or anxious.

Here are a few common signs to watch for with your pet:

1. A flash or image related to your pet appears in your mind that you were not thinking about ~ It may be their food, toys, or something in their body

2. A feeling or emotion washes over you when you are near your pet or when you think about them.

~ Such as a nagging feeling that something is wrong or off about your pet

3. You may experience physical pain in your body that normally would not be there such as lower back pain, twinges in your arms or legs, upset stomach or digestive issues.

~ It can range from constant pain or something that comes and goes and can be a message from your pet.

4. If you are having a recurring dream about your departed pet chances are they are stopping by to let you know they are around you.

~ Visiting while we sleep is the most common way our departed pets communicate with us as our brains are relaxed and open to receive telepathic communication.

Some of the biggest mistakes I have made with my pets is ignoring signs especially when it comes to their health.

If you sense something is wrong with your pet don’t hesitate.

They can send you an energetic message BEFORE something manifests into a full-blown, serious health issue.

Don’t wait! Act on any messages or feelings you get from your pet.
