Animals and The Afterlife

By WendyVandePoll. | Dog Info

Have you ever considered the spiritual aspect of your relationship with your pet after they die? Have you wondered what happens to your pet in the nonphysical world?

You may ask is my pet happy and do they know I still love them?

An important element to understanding the nonphysical world happens via an animal medium session. This is where you would experience contact with the energy or spirit of your deceased pet through the guidance and expertise of an animal medium.

An animal medium can translate and communicate messages from a pet that has died to you.

Although a session with an animal medium is not a cure for the grief that you may be going through, it can help ease your pain and misery.

In my own work as a medium connecting pet owners to their deceased pets, so many people described it as a helpful and reassuring experience.

A Perspective on Death

One way to consider death is to explore the notion that it is a pause between living in physical and nonphysical forms. Your pet will continue loving you and being loyal even after they continue to the afterlife in spirit form.

They can do this by giving you:

  • a brief sighting of them out of the corner of your eye or in a cloud formation;
  • a glimpse into their life by way of a dream;
  • an opportunity to hear them meow, bark, whining, chirp; and/or
  • a feeling in your heart that they are close to you.

Even knowing this, there are many questions that you may have. I am going to share with you three of the most common questions that I receive from my clients.

Common Questions Concerning the Afterlife

  • Question #1 – What happens when my pet dies?

When your companion dies, they move into spiritual energy. They exist without sickness, pain, or fear.

  • Question #2 – Does my pet that died have a special message for me?

The answer is YES! When a pet dies, they are still contactable and often want to continue to contact their people for many years. Even though they are not in the physical body, their spirit is alive and well.

When they do contact you, there is purpose in that connection, so having an animal medium help you sort out this message can be helpful. You can consider your pet as your lifetime guide or guru, helping you to find peace amongst the chaos of being human.

  • Question #3 – Will my pet come back to live with me?

They can and they do! They will come back as an animal companion. Animals do not reincarnate as humans.

Also, parts of their “personality” can also come back as part of another pet’s personality.

Strengthening Your Forever Bond

Connecting with your pet in the afterlife is a healthy way to cope with your grief. Listening to what your pet has to say in spirit form will strengthen your forever bond in a new way.

What are your experiences of “sensing” your pet’s presence? Have you had any dreams of your pet? What do you think is the message your pet wants to share with you? How are you still spiritually connected to your pet?

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
