When you research spirit animals, you usually see photos of wild animals, dream catchers and Native American symbols. But what about spirit animals that become pets?
I have had the privilege of talking to spirit animals in the form of dogs, cats and horses. These wonderful beings are the ultimate teachers and they usually come into our lives over and over again.
Do you have one? Did your animal companion seem familiar from the very beginning? Does he/she remind you of an animal that has passed? Just like the connection that we have with certain people in our lives, we also have a connection with certain animals to help us on our life’s journey. Spirit animals come into your life completely at home and attached to you emotionally. That is why the bond is so strong…..and when the time comes, that is why it is so very hard to say goodbye.
I am often asked why some animals leave this life with so much apparent pain and hardship while others cross peacefully and at ease. It depends on the lessons we need to learn.
Did you have to make the decision to let your companion go because of his/her diminished quality of life? Please know that I have never met an animal in spirit that did not appreciate this gift. And if the passing was peaceful, you could feel some peace yourself which ultimately helps you get through your pain.
But what if the passing was not peaceful? What if it was hard? My Guides tell me that it was because that animal was a spirit animal and when that time came, the spirit left the mortal body early. It is one final lesson for you…..that there is no such thing as death - that we are all spirit.
There is good news here….your beloved companion will be back.
