Do You Have Confused Feelings About Animals? by John Cali

Image License

As I looked at our website statistics this past weekend, I was a bit surprised to see among our most popular articles and posts are those about animals. In our latest blog post, He Was Just a Dog, we talked about the spiritual aspects of animals, domestic and wild.

Today we’re continuing that subject. This will be a shorter article than normal, as I’m away from home again (unexpectedly) for the next couple weeks.

Here are some of my spirit guides’ thoughts about our sometimes-confused feelings toward animals—especially when it comes to deciding to be a meat-eater or a vegetarian. (I personally am vegetarian. But I honor everyone’s choices, whether they agree or disagree with me.)

  • Animals have spirits (or souls) which are just as real and as deserving of love and respect as humans. 
  • Animals have the same intense feelings and emotions as humans. 
  • Domestic pets are as much a part of your families as are the humans. 
  • If you choose to eat meat be sure the animals are raised humanely. Give thanks to the animals’ spirits before you begin eating. 
  • Respect and honor the choices other humans make, whether you’re vegetarian or not. 
  • Animals can teach you much about love and healing. They are far wiser than most humans know or acknowledge. 
  • Your animals are always with you. Your relationships with them continue beyond the veil of death.


This video is a touching perspective of animals from a source you might not expect:

    Love is the key to unlock the doors and break down the barriers which keep us seeing forms of separation. Thank you, John

    What I loved about Luiz was how very thoughtful and focused he is here.

    Completely aligned with himself he quietly and clearly expresses his feelings through a series of questions. He is clear and mature in his delivery. Brilliant, really. I love how the woman behind the camera ( mama? ) gently allows him his feelings and listens to him so lovingly. I love how she honors his feelings and doesn’t shame him or try to make him wrong or force him to eat the octopus.

    I love how she is moved by his words and how he notices her tears.

    Love speaks gently
    Love quietly and respectfully listens
    Love is in the house

    I’m moving to Luiz’s house!

      Thank you, Martha. He certainly is a wise little old soul. As far as I can tell, that is his mother behind the camera.

    I’d like to see an article about the souls/spirits of plants.

    Hi John,

    I believe our pets give us unconditional love, no questions about their loyalty, and as we say in Australia they are ‘true blue’. What more can I say.

    Love and Hugs,

    Yes I am somewhat confused

    I’m a foodie/food addict – I love it all

    but when I’m clear I don’t want flesh

    and veggies rule !

    Very touching.

      Thank you very much, Martha. I also was deeply touched by that video. As you said, “out of the mouths of babes…”
