Is your pet reincarnated? Reincarnation of Animal Angel, Inspirational Hope for Grief Support for Pet Loss
My dog died.
I was devastated! My heart experienced a gut-wrenching pain and loneliness. My life was destroyed. His wiggling wasn’t expecting me, and being in an empty house was more than I could bear.
I watched endless months of weekly photos, daily puppy updates, rescue videos, and webcams. Nothing! I really didn’t even care because my heart still cried to the bottom and my tears still flowed. However, I felt compelled to keep seeing the updates no matter how upset they made me feel.
Then this fluffy little ball of fur that was dragging a BIG stuffed toy in its mouth happily ran across my computer screen. My heart raced. I must have watched, re-watched, and memorized that video hundreds of times. I “felt” it in my soul (sign 1). I called, he was available although 2500 miles away. I thought too far to fly the little one with scales. (Signal 2) as the Universe would do, the airline added a non-stop vacation flight from that area to our airport, so now it had no excuses. He had been free of obstacles for years and a new puppy, well …
I talked and asked the puppy’s keeper until she was probably really tired of me. In one conversation, she jokingly referred to him as “bad boy”. I asked why. He said he had what looked like a B on his right hip and he would send me a picture. (Signal 3) The image sent chills down my spine and all my friends in a chorus of “what is it you don’t understand?” He was already being spoken for on a higher level than any of us knew at the time. It was as if God had assigned an angel to monogram my signature on his hip so that I wasn’t so “human” as not to understand that this dog was meant to be mine.
With a tired, scared and excited heart I met him at the airport VERY apprehensive! What if I have the wrong puppy and we don’t connect? He had never chosen a puppy from a distance. It launched out of its box and immediately sat the 7 pounds of 9 week lint in front of me. He looked up and looked me straight in the eye as if to say where you’ve been. Now let’s get on with our life. Then he jumped into my arms and slept all the way to my house, which had now become our home.
I called him friend. He responded to his “old” name without missing a beat. He knew where his bed was, recognized the toys from his past life, and collected them in the same place where they were supposed to be! He didn’t even inspect the new toys, he wanted HIS toys! He talks, hugs and does all the things that all the dogs of my soul “did”. When I look into his eyes, we never leave. It is my “puppy”, my best friend. When my heart asked where you had been, her spirit responded: I had to change my old body for this new one in order to be in your life again. At 10 weeks of age, he knew and responded to all of the old dog’s commands, no training was necessary. He is my old grown dog with few puppy moments, except he runs to “open wide”, is learning to handle those new feet, and is a chewing machine.
I am lucky to have soft paw pads caressing my face to wake me up every morning. All the eccentric little habits, routines, traits, favorite toys, foods, stains and tricks that only my soul knows are back in my world in another form of earthy skin “monogrammed” as Friend.
If you’ve lost your pet, service dog, companion animal, assistance dog, pet therapy dog, soul dog, and fur baby forever, don’t give up hope. Listen to the impulses of your heart, observe your dreams and follow the knowledge and intuition of your soul. If you feel like you want to cling to your pet’s beds and toys, there is a reason, a part of your soul knows that they will return. The soul of each dog is a spirit composed of eternal energy that lives forever in all that is.
When he is your soul pet, animal spirit guide, or spirit teacher in animal form, God / the Universe honors his choice to reincarnate to be with you many times in various physical bodies. Know that your pet is not gone forever. Give your spirit time to choose a new body. You’ll know when you see them! “Mom, I’m home!”
Here are some signs that your animal may have reincarnated:
1. Listen and follow the timing and guidance of your inner drives to seek your new body shape. You will “know” if it’s a puppy, a rescue dog, an animal shelter, a newspaper ad, an internet search – just listen and trust!
2. Never overlook the little details and just pass them off as not worthy of attention.
Follow the details and trust that they are correct. There are no coincidences.
3. Look into the eyes of your pet at the window of his soul, he will know and recognize your connection.
4. Ask questions and listen to the answers with your heart.
5. If you feel like you want to cling to your pet’s beds and toys, there is a reason, a part of your soul knows that they will return.
Sometimes when they return, they incorporate a new trait that you expected them to have, in addition to their previous traits, as one more answer to your prayer. The reincarnation time period in which they return can be as short as several hours or more.
