Do animals and pets have afterlives?
Hey everyone. So, I had a great question that came in from someone who wants to know if we’ll see our pets again in the afterlife. And so, to answer this question, I wanted to share something that happened to me that I directly experienced. And hopefully, this gives you some peace. If this is a question that you’ve been thinking about or something that you’ve wondered, what not. So my boy Sammy is a cocker spaniel beautiful, dog. I adopted him when he was two and he lasted until he was unfortunately developed cancer and died rather, quickly and unexpectedly. And you know, Sam was my best friend. You know, I always say that Sam rescued me and not the other way around. And so on Sammy died it really really caught me off guard and I’m sure like many of you have lost pets.
Just really deep. Deep grief, anyway, five or six days after Sam passed, I was lying in bed, and And my eyes were open. I wasn’t asleep. And I looked down towards the foot of my bed, and I noticed that underneath the comforter, there was like this. I don’t know what you’d call it almost look like a little bubble, or if there was a stuffed animal underneath the comforter. So is this thing and it starts to make its way up to the top of the bed and eventually I push the comforter down and it was Sammy and Sammy look so brilliant. So full of life, So full of energy, you know, we had chronic ear infections most of his life so it wasn’t very playful and you know that the pain would just be. It would just get too uncomfortable even though he was treated you would just get uncomfortable and so we just lit around the house so he didn’t play a lot. And so seeing him in this new form where he was playing and he was happy and he was just more him that he’d ever been before and it was a beautiful, beautiful few moments and we played in relaxed and you know, I don’t know how long Sam was, was there. Our but you know, after a certain period, Sammy decided to go back under the comforter and he crawled all the way down to the foot of the bed, and that little puff, that little, that little indentation under the comforter one away. And I couldn’t believe it. I was shocked and I knew it wasn’t a dream because I never woke up, my eyes were open the entire time and so that’s just a personal anecdote, I wanted to share with you.
I do believe that our pet’s souls carry on after their physical body dies—just like ours do. And we will see them and we will be reunited you can ask for signs and you will see them, they’re always here. They never leave.
