Many people ask me if animal communication works with animals who have passed on. The short answer is “yes” but of course, there is a longer, more detailed answer as well. As an animal communicator, my experience is that most animals remain available, willing, ready, and even anxious to communicate with their humans. Occasionally this is not the case, but I can think of only about four animals who have passed away with which I have not able to connect at all.
There are a variety of reasons we might want to communicate with our beloved animals in spirit. First and foremost, a communication session offers an opportunity for closure, especially if the animal passed unexpectedly. Even with animals whom we expect to pass, or whom we assist to pass, closure a few weeks after their passing has proven to be extremely valuable for many clients. I have received a number of follow-up emails and voice mails from clients stating that they were suddenly able to let go of guilt, or move through their grief more gracefully after having the opportunity to talk with their deceased companions.
So closure is at the top of the list of reasons for communicating with our pets in spirit. Other reasons on the list are varied and individual.
- Some clients wish to know if their beloved animal companion intends to return to them – reincarnate – in the future. If so, sometimes the deceased animal can provide signals or clues on how and when to find them.
- Often a family intends to eventually bring a new pet in to the home, and they request assistance from their animal in spirit to help them find the pet that is waiting for them.
- Animals who have passed can provide wonderfully profound wisdom and guidance for their humans as they continue on in their lives.
- Clients sometimes request assistance from their beloved and trusted animal in spirit to help those who are readying themselves to pass. This was extremely comforting to me, personally, knowing that my deceased dog, Pugsley, was available at my request to assist my beloved Valentino as he passed from this life to his new life.
Communicating with our animals who have passed away is not something that is right for everyone. Many do find great comfort and relief, however, in having an opportunity to check in with their beloved companion once, or regularly after their passing.
