One of our clients asked us that question a while back. It’s a great question.

While I realize many people do not believe animals have souls or spirits, I know they do. My spirit guides have convinced me of that, beyond any shadow of doubt.


Those who love you, whether they were human or animal in their physical form, never leave you. They often have a desire, beyond the grave, to help you and to continue loving you. That is often why you see, or feel, or hear what you might call “ghosts.”

Animals see little difference between life and death. No matter how awful (or peaceful) their transition from life to death appears to you, those transitions are always easy and effortless to them. And when they arrive “on the other side,” they continue their joyful, exuberant, and happy lives, romping and playing with abandon.

They often return to visit you. As do your human loved ones. But many of you are not open to that happening for you. It’s all a matter of vibration. If you believe, you vibrate in a positive way. And then you open the “doorway” to those beings who, on the “other side,” are vibrating at that same high level.

You never lose those you love. If you remain open to them, “alive” or “dead,” you will always be comforted by them. You will feel their presence, their energy. Your pets never leave you.

Knowing your pets never leave you is comforting. But we want you to appreciate them more fully while they are still in the physical. They know how to have play and have fun. Most of you can use more fun and laughter in your lives. Let your pets teach you how to do that.
