    Default Can your dog or cat that has passed away make contact with you from the hereafter?

    I really wanted to ask this, last week I had to make the decision to put my 15 yr,6 mo. old lab to sleep. She only had one good leg left, her bones were cracking when she moved and she wasn't getting up on her own anymore. Tough tough day taking her in and saying goodbye. Her AKC name was Rylee Rylee O'Rylee, and was she smart and did she push your buttons if you didn't pay attention to her. And I mean daily. Since her passing we have had a small bottle go off the shelf and now every night a light is being turned on by itself while I am up reading or getting something to drink. It has been consistent for 5 days now every night. May I ask can this be her ? and will I see her again when its my time? Thank You

    Not quite the question you asked! But remember... animals reincarnate, too.

    You will see her Pyrangello, when you are free like she is. But you will both have a good laugh in the pub and then realize you are part of each other. And then it won't matter so much if you see "her" anymore. We're all part of God. You want to say goodbye. You want to make sure she's okay and she's not in any physical and emotional pain. If you knew she was happy, wouldn't that make it better?

    She's in a different dimension and she feels your love. You're the problem.

    I don't even know where that came from but I felt compelled to type it.

    I had to relinquish the dog love of my life. God I loved that dog. She's fine, you just can't see her. I know you miss her. It's just where we are right now. Hang in there.

    That you're asking this question suggest to me that you know the answer. You're sensing something.

    I have had very lucid dreams in which I am with one of my dogs or cats that has passed. I know others who have as well.

    Several times while resting, though awake, I have felt a cat walking on me or near me on the bed -- and none of my living cats are nearby.

    I induced an OBE a few years ago with the intention of seeing a cat that had passed many years ago. While she was here, she was my best friend. She died young (7 years-old) of feline leukemia, and I mourned for her for years. Anyway, in the OBE that I induced, I made it to her. She was staying with some older woman, who I don't think I have ever known in this lifetime. As I perceived it, this older woman was taking care of her for me. I spent some time with the cat, holding her on my lap and talking to her. When it was time to go, I just cried. I didn't want to leave her. When I woke up, I was crying real tears. I don't know where that experience took place, but I have never doubted that I was with her.

    Wolfie, my 16+ year old Yorkie passed four years ago this month. He’s in my dreams most nights. I often sense him around me. When I’m going off to sleep, Wolfie curls up in his favorite spot on the bed. Sometime I catch myself watching where I step because I sense he’s right there.




    Repost:

    I read where some pets large and small meet up with their love ones and carry on. I found comfort in that knowledge. Shortly after, I experienced it first hand:
    My neighbor, Barbara had a dog named, Mikie. As part of his training, she’d walk him around the circle driveway, and also he’d accompanied her with the chores like empty trash and care for the horses. Always the same trot from both of them, and same hand positions with the leash.

    One morning, Barbara emptied the trash and came around the circle. Only this time, she walked with an invisible leash, the same hand positions as always. And Mikie? He was trotting right by her side only in his light-body. I blinked a couple of times, still in disbelief.

    That afternoon, Barbara dug a deep hole with the farm equipment next to the horse fence. Then she walked the circle alone with a wrapped up bundle. She lowered herself into the knee deep hole, and gently laid her Mikie to rest.

    (I didn't know he had passed. I clearly saw him in his light body.)

    Yes, they can. I have personallyy experienced this.
    My cat and myself were very close. I looked at her as a human with four legs and I think she looked at me as a cat with two legs. She trusted me absolutely. I would throw her high up into the air and when she would fall down I would catch her just before she hit the ground. To my amazement when I would catch her, she was purring and showed no sign of distress or fear. She just trusted me.
    I could write a book about how much she taught me about trust. Trusting yourself, let alone others, is a BIG issue in the evolution of our souls, I believe.
    To make a long story short, my cat after a long journey with me, became unable to look after herself and I decided to put her to sleep. I said goodbye to her at home before taking her to the vet. I wept while holding her in my arms and my tears fell on her and I sensed she knew something unusual was happening.
    Exactly 24 hours after I had her put to sleep, she communicated with me telepathically. She asked me three times "why did you do this to me?" And telepathically I replied that I loved her and I asked her to move into the light.
    After much soul searching, I came to the conclusion that putting an animal that you have bonded with to sleep is really a breach of trust. I realized that the period when an animal that totally trusts you comes to the end of her/his journey on earth with us, is a period that actually offers high soul growth potential in terms of REAL trust. I did not honour her wish to live life with me to the very end. I disrespected her wish. I made the decision to kill her which essentially is a breach of her trust in me. To this day, I regret my decision.

    I have lost 3 dogs in the last 10 years. Sometimes they will show up in my dreams. I feel that they reincarnate as do humans.
    I talk to them many times each day, telling them I love them and I hope they are having fun.
    I will not let my animals suffer if they are terminally ill or in permanent severe pain.
    And I hope the universe responds the same to me.
    Sometimes I spontaneously call their names and have an emotional experience. Perhaps that is me sensing their presence.

    Does the issue of euthanasia arise for our animal friends? I think so. If my pet is suffering immensely, I will most definitely look closely at putting down the poor creature in a humanely way. It seems to me cruel to do otherwise. We do it for our friends and families, so why not for our animal friends?
    Our destiny is in our hands. Let us visualise a world of truth, freedom and equality.

    Well the light came on again last night between 3 and 4 am in the sun porch by itself just like it has since rylee went to sleep. In regards to having her put to sleep. I struggled with that decision for 6 months. During that time she had 3 day long seizures where she couldn't get up but then bounced back starting the next day. Her back legs were very wobbly regarding sideways motion but she still was jumping on the couch everyday to lay down. Her front legs had arthritis in her shoulders but she compensated in so many ways that is until one of her front legs started going bad and wasn't getting any better over 5 days. Rylee never yelped from the pain ever, walked like a 110 year old person would that was an olympic athelete all there life. But the vet said when she is breathing really hard thats when she is in alot of pain.i did make the decision when after 5 days of her front leg not working and now only down to one good leg plus her falling down and whenever i propped her up you could here her spine and ribs cracking that yes it was time.

    I can say with all honesty that I've had several of my furry friends make contact. I've literally seen them, they have shown themselves to me in a whole, and also, much healthier body than when they left. The first time I thought I was losing my mind, but I have come to realize we are all spirit. This has happened to me many times, and it's given me so much hope, because it is a validation that we are all spirit. So, I suggest keeping your mind open and realize that your Rylee is in a much better place, and as the old saying goes, she is waiting for you when you cross, as are all the others. I hope this gives you a little peace of mind because it is what I believe without a doubt.

    My son used to do things like that after he passed. There were so many ways he let me know he was okay I couldn't list them all.

    I was led to a psychic in Florida after he passed. This man was incredible. I told him nothing. There was no way he could have known my son died. My son did come through, but one thing he said stuck with me. It was only two weeks after his body died and Glenn was astounded he came through at all, considering he hadn't time to get adjusted to the other side.

    I did indeed know after that session we don't die. Neither do our pets. Pyrangello I have read many of your posts and you seem to be very spiritual. Ask for a sign. Sometimes you have to be specific and give a time frame.

    A big hug to you.

    I hope that Bill is right with his first reply (fairly sure) but all my sympathies for your loss and know how close you can become with pets and animals who often have more humanistic traits than some so called humans

    Love is love

    From 1939's Reincarnation by Manly P. Hall:

    Quote All the animate and inanimate bodies in nature are ensouled by the same divine force. This spiritual power manifests through the various kingdoms according to the intrinsic nature and the degree of evolution which each has attained. The difference between man and animal is intellectual rather than spiritual or physical. The lower beasts lacking certain mental and sensory developments peculiar to man are incapable of reflection and expression to the same degree.
    [...]
    It is obvious from the study of highly domesticated animals that these creatures have absorbed a great deal from their human associates and are capable of a measure of true intellection.
    [...]
    Philosophically, the difference between man and the animal lies in the metaphysical structure. The human being has individualized its sattva or ego. As a result man is responsible only to himself for his actions. He is rewarded for good and punished for evil by his own spiritual nature.
    In the case of the animal the entity has not been individualized but remains as one collective source of life. Man emanates only one physical body at a time; the animal entity emanates numerous physical bodies at one time, all of which are dependent upon itself. There is a collective animal entity for each of the species of animals and their subdivisions. Thus there is a collective entity for dogs, and within this, lesser collective entities for each type or kind of dog.
    When man incarnates he is a complete unit consisting of an entity and its mental, emotional and physical bodies. The seperate animal is not complete, for while its lower bodies are individual, its entity and mind are collective. The result is that in the animal evolution all animals develop and gain experience through the evolution of any one of their kind, whereas man must grow individually. When an animal dies, the collective entity immediately sends out other embodiments, but there can be no such thing as the reincarnation of any specific animal.
    As animals have superphysical as well as physical bodies, they may continue for a time in the invisible worlds. Therefore animals, like humans, can be earthbound, and under certain conditions can be seen clairvoyantly after they have physically died.

    [...]
    The law of reincarnation is not applicable to animals because of their constant emergence from the sollective self, but the approximate period between waves of emanation is from five to ten years in higher mammals, and only a few days in some insects and fishes.
    Sorry for your loss, and I hope this helps
    I hope you'll be able to find solace in the idea that because of the wonderful life she has had with you, Rylee has had a positive influence on the overall evolution of her kind.

    On the first day I found Rylee, there was an ad
    in the paper for lab pups November , 2002. I went to the house and
    there were her lab parents and 10 little puppies,all snow white, they had a big room in
    the garage so I sat on the floor and this one puppy came to me 3 times,
    6 weeks old and 9 lbs. I said this is the one, put her in the truck and
    she fell asleep in my lap on the way home. I got a big cardboard box
    until I crate trained her to sleep in. She only cried 1 time for about
    10 minutes one night and that was all during her puppy life. On the very first day at the
    house I filled her bowl with food and went into the living room, after
    she got done eating at 6 weeks old her very first day at her new home
    she grabbed the bowl which was way larger than her head and carried it
    in the living room where I was sitting and dropped the bowl in front of
    me saying she wanted more food. THE VERY FIRST DAY!

    After I got her crate trained I use to leave her cage door open in the house , I had
    built a carpeted ramp up to the cage so she could see outside during the
    day, one day I came home and she was laying in her crate with her head
    outside of the crate on the ramp only she managed to drag my pillow from
    the bedroom ,off my bed ,and put it on the ramp for her head to lay on.

    When the snow came she would always lay on the snow put her head and
    nose under the snow and push with her hind feet. Then one night at the
    cabin when she was 6 months we threw a dozen biscuits in the air in 2ft
    of snow in the middle of the night and yep she found every one of them.
    She loved the snow and water so much. And because she loved the water so much
    I bought her a kiddie pool for the backyard, she loved that pool, when
    I kept it filled all summer long, when she would lay in that pool Rylee would
    Put her head under the water and push around the inside blowing bubbles the
    Entire time. During the winter when the creek froze over she was run on top of the ice
    Crashing thru full steam, then roll in the dirty water, oh god how many baths
    I had to give her.

    Boy the 2cd picture was classic rylee, always eyeballing the beer. She
    definitely made her dent in bud light,even when I would have a bud light
    ,she would take her paw and pull the bottle to her mouth and she knew
    The words bud light.

    Underwear and sock tearing, hat stealing, Every evening when I got home
    Rylee was always charged up and ready to play, if you didn’t want to play
    She knew how to get your attention, she would go down the hall and get a sock
    ,hat or pair of undies, trot down to where you were in the house and stand there
    Just over arms length and snort. If you didn’t get up and get a biscuit for her she would
    Drop whatever she had in her mouth on the floor, put one paw on it and grab the remaining
    With her teeth and pull so straight up tearing it in 2. And guess what if you still didn’t get
    Her a biscuit then, she was going back in the bedroom for the other sock to do this all again
    Right in front of you. Me and all my friends lost a lot of socks and hats over the years.

    One time when I was bar-b-queing she grabbed an entire round steak raw off the plate
    before it hit the bar-b-que and swallowed it whole,still can’t believe she swallowed that
    and also her famous howling at the trains outside whenever they came by. She hadn't
    barked in almost 2 years and never made a sound not once of how much pain she was in .

    One time she drank 2 bud lights, that was only once and that was her
    limit. She jumped and caught the Frisbee I don't know how many times in
    the air , she was fast and could she jump. We also played back and forth with
    the ball at least 20 times in a row in the air a bunch in the living room on so many evenings.
    She would punch the ball back with her nose with precision just like in volleyball.

    One time I took her to lake on the boat, she didn't leave the lake for 8
    hours except to get on the pontoon and raid the cooler of lunch meat by
    herself, she pushed open the cooler top and there it was, the grand meal
    waiting for her, she would wait til you weren’t looking and then it was picnic time..

    While you were sitting on the couch Rylee was a master at taking out your
    baseball hat while you were wearing it with her front teeth right behind you and then run til she got a
    biscuit. She knew the words chalet and bud light, she would always wake
    up 20 minutes before cabin north to sniff the air vent knowing we were
    close, one time I passed the cabin purposely and she went back to sleep
    after I did, all because she knew , and did she ever know.

    She hadn't slept on the bed in probably 3 years, she had a matress on the floor, but even up to 3 days
    ago when she could barely walk, she still managed to jump on the couch
    for a nap. And thats where I sat with her on the last night at the house
    until 3 am to just say goodbye the night before I had her put to sleep.

    Rylee knew all the hand signals without saying a word,If you tapped both your shoulders at the same time when you were on your knees
    She would jump at you head on and knock you over and lick your face because that
    Was the signal for hugs! She knew all the signals roll over, stay, sit , lay, go left, go right.

    At Christmas time, when all the presents were around the tree, there was always presents for Rylee,
    On Christmas morning I would tell Rylee to go get her present, and she would dig thru the pile of presents and would find the one with her name on it, I swear to god, I still have no idea how she would find it and yes she would open too.And usually I would have a few more and yes she would go get those to right out of the pile.

    I guess the best thing about Rylee was the definition of unconditional love I learned from her, coming from a pretty shxxx childhood never really learned that, never understood that,I do now, I think Rylee would have been posting on this forum as how intuitive she was. I wanted to post this above because I needed help understanding all this and wanted you to know she was much more than a pet, I'm too tied emotionally to this to stay on point with my spiritual side of understanding but I'll get there and yes one day I'll let go, I'm thinking on her birthday this year which was halloween.

    I will say when I went home to pick her up to take her in for her last ride in the truck, that was the hardest thing I ever did. But while she was on the comforter at the vets and when she took her last breath, a heavy one. You could feel the relief of all that pain was now gone, you could feel it lift from her, even my wife who is an empath felt it too. So I knew it was the right thing to do. I hope all of you got to know Rylee a little better from the story above and got a few laughs , I'll post a picture later tonight. I have to work, kind of tough welding when you have tears but I'll get there . I know she's ok now but I don't think she's done getting attention yet.

    According to Meher Baba in God Speaks, reincarnation begins at the human level. Animals do not reincarnate.
    Well, he's incorrect.
    After closely studying and having a hard time finding flaws with physicist Tom Campbell's Theory of Everything, I'm also having a hard time letting go of the notion of reincarnation as an exact same soul identity on some journey of evolving through repeating, and the comfort of thinking there are ongoing loving relationships that were seemingly so meaningful in lifetimes that endure. It's so much lonelier than our romanticized constructs of enduring attachments.

    Instead, all is information including ourselves and others that are creations of our mind to interact with, these 'avatars' dissipate at death though the 'experiences' and 'personality' of those individuated constructs can be reconstituted at will from the experience data accumulated/stored during that avatar's 'lifetime' as if still the person/creation we knew.

    If reincarnation is true as generally characterized as above, then Tom Campbell is totally incorrect. I would be very interested to hear where you think Tom Campbell's reasoning is flawed.

    There is no way to scientifically study reincarnation. All evidence is anecdotal. However, I think that Dr. Michael Newton did a good job of collecting, comparing, and contrasting "between incarnations" (spirit) memories of thousands of people, and tried to be scientific about it. In one account of a between-incarnations memory, there was a spirit dog romping and playing.

    Some dogs appear to be FAR more evolved than most humans. My sister had a Golden that was the purest and most intense fountain of love-energy of any being I have ever encountered. I'd be much more surprised if that dog doesn't live on in spirit form.

    Got my first dog when I was only 12 years old, Cindy we called her and she was a cross whippet. Best friend I had in my young years but when I moved away from home I kind of forgot about her, (sounds callous I know).

    In Australia, aged 26 and working on a cattle station in the Northern Territory my mind was suddenly filled with a vision of her and I had many memories of her over the next few hours. I came to the conclusion that she must have passed but it was several weeks before I got the confirmation in a phone call with my mother.

    Roll forward the years and I bought a German Shephard pup when I was mid 30's. Took her to Thailand with me aged 40 and we lived there 5 years. She was pretty much my constant companion although I will say the flight to Thailand was very traumatic for her. When I finally got to go and collect her she was standing in her carry cage head hanging down looking for all the world like the life had already ended. I spoke and got no reaction, I tried again. "Gypsy, it's me". She looked up but it still took about 10 seconds for recognition to truly dawn, when it did the explosion of joy lasted nearly 20 minutes. Out in the car park she'd still suddenly burst into leaping and whining trying to lick my face.

    I had to return to England, aged 45, and bearing in mind she was over 10 years old and remembering her flight experience I couldn't put her through another plus 6 months quarantine back in UK. So I said my goodbyes and left her in the care of my wife's parents. It had been her home for the last 3 years and she was settled with everyone.

    About a year later I had a very vivid dream where I saw her in the back garden of my current house with my Aunt Doreen. My Aunt had been passed for several years already, putting two and two together I assumed Gypsy had now passed and was with my Aunt. I told my wife next morning that I thought Gypsy was dead and had a confirmation a few short days later when she rang her mother at the weekend. She was barely 11 yrs old.

    So yeah, Pyrangello, it could definitely be her - still pulling your strings.

    PS: My very psychic friend told me once she often saw a woman standing behind me as though watching over me. The first time she visited my house she noticed a picture. "That's the woman. The one I see behind you sometimes."
    It was a picture of myself and Doreen at my cousin's wedding taken over 20 years earlier. My mother's sister who had often told me that we (my sister and I) were the children she had never had.
