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.
