Coping With Grief: The Loss of a Beloved Pet

Coping With Grief: The Loss of a Beloved Pet

The loss of a loved one, whether it be human or animal is devastating for some folks, painful for all…. We ask why , or feel terrible guilt, no matter how much care we invested… and most of us wonder what happens when our loved one passes into spirit, if they’re OK on the other side….

Laura Simpson and the Global Psychics Team offer some valuable insights on dealing with the grief experienced at the loss of a beloved pet….

Our Pets Have Help Crossing…

Our dog was really sick and was about to be put down. So one day I was eating dinner and I quickly looked at our dog I realized above her I saw a body shape of a girl with blue around her and a yellow halo. Do you know what that was or was it anything?

My guess is that you saw an angel that was helping your dog through her transition. Be easy with it, Laura

In Loving Memory… A Message From the Other Side…

Submitted by Victoria, a gift to those in grief.

I know what you’re thinking. You think I’m dead. Because you cannot see me with your human eye, cannot feel me with your hands or hold me in your arms you think I am gone forever. You recall how I looked when I left this place and you cannot remotely imagine that I could possibly be alive in another place. You are racked and torn by the pain of our separation and it blinds you to that which is right in front of you … me.

How many times since I left your immediate sight have you been told that I’m dead and you should “get over it?” How many times have you cried yourself to sleep because you feel like an outcast, believing you’re supposed to get over me because that’s what people say is normal but somehow you can’t and no one seems to understand?

How many times have you put yourself through such excruciating pain because you aren’t willing to consider that I am not, by any means, dead?

I want you to do me a favor and go back in time with me. Remember the glorious day you brought me home – was I not the most intriguing creature you’d ever met? Did I not make you laugh and giggle? Did I not look at you with such adoration that you wanted nothing more than to spend the rest of your life with me? I wanted this too.

Remember the days when I was in my prime and we did many things together. You were so proud of me! I was a good friend and I took care of you when you cried, were angry or felt down and unhappy. When you didn’t have a lot of time for me because of your obligations, I waited patiently for you. I was always there when you needed me. Did I not look at you with such acceptance and patience that at times you felt perhaps a bit unworthy? You were never unworthy in my eyes.

Remember when age crept up on me, my bones became stiff and my movements slower. Still I met you at the door when you came home and followed you around the house. We’d been together for so long, I was your very best friend regardless of what you were doing, saying, thinking. Did I not look at you with such kindness and understanding that you felt overwhelmed? I couldn’t get enough of you.

Remember the last time we saw each other with earthly eyes. You tried to be brave but I knew you were crying … I know you so well. Better than anyone else in the whole world. Did I not look at you with such pure trust and love that you yearned only to hold me close and keep me with you always? Did you not promise that you would love me forever? I believed you.

If this is so then why have you let me go by thinking I no longer exist?

Remember the depth in my eyes all those times I looked at you with adoration, acceptance, patience, trust and love. Who created this depth and love? Would the Creator diminish the song of our laughter which was created in the name of love? I am no longer an earthly figure, this is true. My body was only part of who I really am. My body would have been but a mere shell on earth if it were not filled to overflowing with my soul, my spirit, my loving light. When we met you thought I was cute, sweet, pretty and adorable. But what kind of relationship would we have had if this is all that I’d been? How could you have loved me if I’d had no spiritual substance?

We are all made up of energy which resides far deep down inside of us, it is our core, our soul, spirit and loving light. It is the energy that is all of life … it has no beginning, it has no end. It simply is and always will be and without it there is no life. You can’t see it with the naked eye nor can you hold it in your hand, it is simply a certain knowing that this energy does exist. It’s a knowing just as you know that our love existed on earth – you couldn’t see our love in a solid sense, you couldn’t gather it all up and confine it to one place. But you *knew* it existed. There was no doubt in your mind.

They demand you get over me, insisting that I’m dead and you’ll never see me again because animals don’t go to Heaven. Oh really? I’m here to tell you different. You were worthy of my love and undying devotion on earth as I was of yours. Do you really believe this love would be snatched from us *forever* by a loving Creator simply because I wasn’t human? Was I not a living, breathing creation with personality? How could I have been so if I didn’t possess the energy of soul, spirit and loving light? And if this energy is and always will be, then how can it be that I am dead? If my core is not of the energy that is all of life then I was never alive to begin with. But you know better.

You cry because you miss me, this I understand. I miss you too – I miss the belly rubs, hugs and kisses that we shared. But life does go on beyond these wonderful, fulfilling physical connections. I came to this place to live a whole new life, not because I didn’t love you anymore or because I wanted something better. I came here because it was time for me to go to the next phase of my existence, something all living creatures must do eventually. It is the normal progression of life. I was not taken away from you because you cannot take away that which was never owned. My presence in your life was and is a gift to be cherished and honored just as I cherish and honor you.

Life is not simply about being born into a body, living a certain number of years and then dying. Energy cannot die. We are blessed with time in a body so that we can learn, share and grow. It prepares us for the next phase of our eternal life. The body holds within it the true life force of our existence…our soul, spirit and loving light. Without these our bodies would be empty, blank, void of feeling and expression. Without our energy we would indeed be dead and could never have experienced our love for each other.

You say that all you have left are memories. Not so. You see, when I took leave of my earthly body I left a little something behind for you. You can’t touch it, hold it or examine it for what I left behind is far too uninhibited for confinement. I left behind a piece of my soul. I placed it right next to your own which is quite fitting as we were always side by side in our earthly life together. I love you too much to have left you with nothing but memories which tend to fade and grow cloudy as the years go by. I love you too much to have vanished without a trace. How selfish it would be of me to remove love and light from your life.

I understand your tears, each one you shed is testament to your love for me and I am honored and humbled. But don’t forget the good things we shared – remember and smile. This is an honor for me as well. And when you need me I will be here. Close your eyes, relax, take slow, deep breaths and picture me in your mind. Shut off the world and your notions of what death is and give me a chance. Look for the subtle signs I send you. Don’t stop being proud of me, I am a friend to be proud of, I am still your friend and soul mate. Don’t memorialize the death of my body but instead honor and celebrate my never-ending life for it is eternal and forever as is my love for you.

Until we meet again… Author unknown

No Time for GoodByes…

I recently lost our family cat of 17 years, and the loss has been very painful and grievous. I just buried her last week and the loss is still fresh. I feel that there was no chance to say “goodbye”, for she found a way to get out of my mother’s house on the night she came up missing, and we found her two and a-half weeks later dead behind two garbage cans. I know that she has passed on, but I still wish to communicate with her, and figure out what happened the night she left. Do you believe that, a month after her death, she would still be in the spirit realm, or that she may have reincarnated already? Are you able to provide a reading on a pet that has passed on? If your answers are going to be costly, please write back that you must charge a fee for your answer. Thanks. Debbie

Dear Debbie,

First off let me congratulate you on having a cat for 17 years!!

Our older cats often find a way to slip out of the house to allow nature to take it’s course without human intervention. You have nothing to feel guilty about!!! I know you didn’t get the chance to say goodbye in the physical, but take some time now, bring her image in your mind’s eye and hold her. Take all the time you need to tell her you love her and how much she ment to you, how much she helped you out with life’s lessons, then say goodbye and wish her well in her new form. It will help you find closure with her and help her cut those cords from her past life so she can be fresh for her new job. What a sweetie!! Take care!! Be easy with the process.

Love, Laura

How Do I know It’s Time to Let Go?

Help me Please, I am desperate. I love my Beary. I will gladly give her 10-20-30 yrs of my life if I have to….. I live in Singapore and I just bought the Book Arthur Myers “Communicating with Animals” I don’t know how we can request a reading and how much it will cost because it is long distance. And I am having trouble with her vet bills already. But anyhow please let me know about cost and if its possible to do one without phone since its long distance. I have an open mind to this. I am worried sick about my best friend and my everything in life – Beary, my 12 yr old Pomeranian. But for vets record her name is Beary Zora. I don’t have her birthdate, just know she was born in 1988. She was diagnosed a month ago with kidney failure. And early on this week she stopped eating. She is at the Vet now getting IV drips , has been there since tuesday and today is Thursday. The vet said her urea level is very high and has not come down to a level it should. Vet said she will not get better as she is in her advanced stages. Kidney disease one, never gets better The aim is to focused on how to maintain her ureal level to a point where she will eat and try to have a life. I visited her yesterday and she kept whining because she wants to come home. I don’t believe she is ready to “die” She still craves my attention, and still barks at time though she generally sleeps alot. What I would want to know is: How does she feel? Is she in Pain? Is she angry with me? When will she want to let go? Does she want to die naturally or with aided help? Will she recover? And any other things she wants me to do for her. And to let her know that I will never let her leave me as long as she is alive. I am worried sick, I can’t sleep, I keep bursting into tears, I miss her so much now that she is at the vet. Please write back soon Serene

Dear Serene,

Beary is in the last days of her life. She has had a very long and wonderful life. You are responsible for her wonderful life. You’ve done nothing wrong. Her body, specifically her Kidneys no longer can support her body functions. Kidneys are like the battery in a car. It doesn’t work without functioning kidneys. There is no recovery from this stage of kidney failure. She is still glad to see you and she remembers the love and fun you’ve had together, but there is no reason to continue her life. She no longer has quality of life. The best thing that you can do for her is to release her to God and Spirit. There she can heal and so can you. You said that financially you are being bled by these vet bills and believe me she has less and less energy each day and absolutely no hope of getting better or having quality of life.

I know you are very attached to her but you knew her life would be limited and now it’s time to say goodbye, thank you for your love and devotion, and go in peace. You will feel the loss of her but she will always be with you and in your memories. She needs you to tell her some stories from her puppyhood and some of the other fun times the two of you had. She knows you love her and you only want the best for her.

Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you! Love, Laura and the Global Psychics Family

Is My Pet OK Over There?

Hi, Not sure if I’m doing this right, but I have to give it a shot anyway. This is my babygirl Chloé. She passed away on the 28th of June. I miss her and I wondered if you have something where you can tell me she made it ok and is happy on the other side. I just found this website and although it has lots of good stuff, I didn’t see anything for this particular area……pets that have passed on. Please help me, I miss her so much. Jacque

Yes, dear, Chloe is just fine on the other side, chasing butterflies, feeling free… I think she must have suffered at the end, since she is passing on the message that she feels fine now and is deeply grateful for the love and attention and comfort that you tried to give her. It seems that whatever she suffered from had been with her a long while… She wants you to invest your love in a new kitty and suggests that the next one will be with you a very long while – by kitty standards. So, be assured she is more than just OK, and that is is also OK to pass your love to another… Lotsa LLLove, Danielle
