If you are a pet parent; more than likely, the day will come when your pet transitions (dies) before you do. When that day comes, we might have had warning or maybe not. Either way we have just lost a friend, fur baby, a confidant, a heart child or soul mate. In the days that follow we can experience so much pain in our heart we weep for hours and maybe even want to crawl into bed never to see the light of day again. The sorrow can bring us to our knees or we shutter at the very heart of our soul. It does not matter if this beloved cat, dog, horse, or bird. It does not matter if the beloved pet is your first or your fiftieth. We mourn the loss. The pain is real.
When we are not immersed in pain, we are questioning ourselves. Did we make the right decisions as the pet parent? We question was there something we could have done differently. If we had just . . .
How nice would it be to speak with them? How much healing can you experience by checking in on their soul to find out if they are still in pain. If they would have chosen any different path or treatment.
These are some of the questions Chica’s mom was asking. Chica was a vibrant Australian Shepherd. She had traveled all over and had friends in every stop. Yes, she was in her senior years and she had been victorious over a substantial health challenge a couple years ago. But Chica died unexpectedly, and her mom was distraught. We scheduled time and Chica (in spirit form) showed up in my office 10 minutes early and she could not sit still. She asked me 3 times: is it time? I laughed and told her how wonderful she was to make sure she was on time. When I called her mom, Chica was just dancing. She felt so good she was spinning and she had so much life in her. I shared everything Chica had to say, and her mom was so very grateful. All her questions had been answered by Chica and from Chica’s viewpoint. Which was full of life, adventure, and excitement, spunk and sassy. We laughed together about how expressive Chica was.
You have the opportunity to speak with your beloved pet and get your questions answered.
