The most bittersweet readings I have had the honor to do is for clients whose pets have crossed over. Through the years, I have received similar questions from clients about their crossed over pet.
Is my pet ok? Do they know I love them? Could I have done more?
Did I do the right thing before they left?
Here’s the beautiful part of the crossing over process. YOUR PET ARRANGES EVERYTHING REGARDING THEIR DEPARTURE. I mean everything – how, when, who is and not with them. Your pet is so connected to you that they know the best way to leave even if it is challenging. How do they know what is the best?
First, they have mastered unconditional love, and because they live in the present, they have access to wisdom. Second, they have an awareness of the agreement made with you before birth to help you learn lessons. It is like having a wise, sensitive, loving angel helping you be your best and be your champion whether or not they are here or in spirit.
One thing that most (not all) clients have expressed is regrets and feeling guilty. Those feelings are normally linked to a lesson. In a reading we can discover the lesson and how your pet is helping you.
Another thing clients have experienced is grief which is different than the regrets/guilty feelings. It is very normal to feel sad or lonely for the loss of a pet, and everyone goes through this differently. It is important to move through this process at your own pace and gift yourself with extra self-care. Here are some things to consider that may help you through this process.
o Your pet is still connected with you in spirit. They want to continue their relationship and to continue helping you. Their physical body no longer limits them. o Once your pet crosses over, they are greeted by their soul family! Guess what - that includes you in your spirit higher self being! o Not everyone will understand what you are going through. Do not be concerned and do what is best for you. o Before bedtime, set your intention to have your pet come into your dreams. Know that this could take some time since grieving can hinder this. However, in our sleep time, we are more open so keep at it. o A Soul Level Specially Designed Animal Artwork has brought comfort as it brings to life the lesson(s) your pet is teaching you. The artwork is composed along with your pet especially for you. Also, a Pictorial Animal Portrait is a beautiful way to honor your pet through the services I provide. o One more important thing to do is to let your tears come and let them flow freely.
Through your pet’s departure, they are helping you move into a new way of communicating and being with them. By being open to this new way instead of worrying about them, it will bring a deeper, sweeter connection to the pure essence of their heart and soul.
Love, light, peace, and happy trails!
