“…he will be our friend for always and always and always.” Rudyard Kipling
The soul of an animal, is there such a thing and if so does the soul live on to take other forms, or has it already had another form?
Have you ever heard someone say that they could swear their new pet is exactly like their last pet that passed or I swear he is my husband who crossed over? Could it be? Souls can and do take on other forms.
How would you know that this new pet is the very same pet? In my business as a Professional Psychic, Medium and Animal Intuitive I get asked this question a lot more often than you would think. Sometimes the impetus to ask about such things are, it’s a feeling or you just know or they have the same behaviors as your dear bird Alfalfa did when he was on the side.
All animals are *sentient beings that have a soul and a body that feels and emotions that manifest in a myriad of ways within individuals and species.
These are the things I look for during a session to ascertain that we do have the same soul incarnating. **Reincarnation is not a belief locked into religion it is a universal concept and can be seen cross-culturally and in many spiritual communities and individuals.
I look for behaviors that the previous pet had or quirks that are not common to the breed or without the benefit of the caregiver providing any information about the beloved companion prior. You too would want to do the same with your new animal companion. The next thing is if there were medical issues that your previous animal had and now the new pet has.
Often time the pet that has crossed the rainbow bridge may also not reincarnate but arrange for a new pet to find its way to you via showing up at your door as a stray and no one steps up for this animal. Perhaps when you opened the door this lost dog goes right to the sleeping place of your previous companion and lays down even though you had already removed the bedding and sanitized the area so no scent mark was there for the new dog to smell. There have also been times I have seen identical unusual markings on the new pet and it may even be a different species altogether.
You have to be a bit of a detective and not try to make it happen, as often happens when we are grieving we so want it to be them, or a new companion brought forth from your previous pet. Let time be on your side and maybe unexpectedly your answers may appear in your dream time. Often your pets will visit you in dreams or you may smell them or an item of theirs that you thought was gone will show up mysteriously.
I have personally witnessed messages from spirit animals many times over through the years and validated these for my clients. Such as this case; I saw their Cane Corsa dog who had crossed-over to the otherside come in spirit into the home and lay down in a large oval bed where he always slept along with the funny behavior of dragging the bed around and around the living room only to place it back where it was originally and drop his big bone down, lay down and begin drooling all over the hardwood floor. This couple had put Aces bedding away months ago after he passed but this was his way of saying I am still with you in spirit. The question to me was “Is our dog Ace ever around us”? Affirmative three times over! Know there are many ways your loved ones are around you from this life time onto the next and thereafter~
*Sentient; having the power of perception by the senses; conscious. ** Reincarnation; The belief that the soul, upon death of the body, comes back to earth in another body or form. The rebirth of the soul in a new body. A new incarnation or embodiment, as of a person.
