What is life like on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge for our deceased pets?
Have you ever wondered what life is like for your pets who have passed away on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge?
Many of you have heard of the Native American legend that when they die they go to the rainbow bridge and all the animals they have had a relationship with will be on the other side and they will decide if they are allowed to enter or not.
Native Americans revered animals and whenever they killed one, they would always do a prayer ceremony and use every part of the animal to survive. Nothing was wasted and they often took the name or felt that the animal was part of them.
In today’s world, we love our animals for their sweet loving personalities and dedication. When one of our pets dies, a part of us goes with it. Although we do not see or experience life in spirit, as long as we have an animal in spirit, we will be connected to rainbow life in spirit.
Everything I talk about I have lived personally. So sometimes I give names to things that may not be what others call them, but again it comes from what I have seen or experienced. I learned several decades ago how to astral projection and I often immerse myself in spirit. I am going to visit and see my loved ones, humans and animals, and to visit the loved ones of my clients.
Everything I present here comes from my own experiences communicating with deceased pets, including my own, and from my travels to the spirit world.
Animals and our human loved ones reside in a space where they can interact with each other and at the same time are able to observe and visit us.
The best way to describe the other side “Heaven” or “the other side of the Rainbow Bridge” is to imagine it as a world without life or death.
All animals live in peace and harmony with each other. It is like the statement in the Bible about the lamb lying with the lion. There are no fights because there is a perfect peace. Their special guardian angels provide everything they need. They have their own special little places to be. They are not obligated to do anything other than enjoy their spiritual life. The vibration in the spiritual world is so intense that you see objects vibrating with colors beyond our dimension.
Your pet is there having a great time and young and healthy once again.
They visit you frequently and their love for you will never die. They know you love them and they see you cry and cry for them. When they really want you to see the wonderful place they are in. If you could see it through their eyes, you would cry with joy. Talk to your pet and ask him to show you where he is. You may see this in a dream, but trust that the spirit world allows you to see the beauty of life over the rainbow bridge.
While it may seem far away, it really does appear to be here, simply vibrating at a different frequency.
Many people have experienced being in this other world by dying and being able to return. There are countless experiences that have been documented through medical and other means.
Throughout my life, my closest relationships have been with animals. I was always able to communicate with them and they with me. As my spiritual gifts developed, I found that I was able to communicate with the deceased. I first began to communicate professionally with deceased human loved ones. Then I started communicating with the deceased pets and found that it was more natural and easier for me.
One of the first channelings I did for someone was for their rabbit that had passed away. I was amazed at how much the bunny communicated and how happy it made their human father to know that they were well cared for in the spirit world.
For the next several months I would connect with animals that had passed away. I discovered that living animals can also communicate telepathically.
Animals that have passed away can interact with our other animals that have passed away, as well as our human beings loved in spirit. It doesn’t matter if they never met in person.
Three years ago, my beloved cat Isis passed away and I accompanied her to the spirit and we stood at the entrance to the Rainbow Bridge. On the other side I could see my father holding my dog Julia, whom he had loved so much. Isis had never met my father, but when she saw him she ran to him across the bridge and jumped onto his other arm. The three of them stayed on the other side of the bridge looking at me as if to say that we will be here when their time comes.
Animals that remain with us physically can see and interact with those that have passed away, yet they will still mourn the loss of physical presence even though they can connect with the spirit of deceased animals.
A dear friend of mine caused a cat of hers to pass away and she wanted to know if her other cats were still seeing it. I asked his cat Roscoe if he missed the other cat Frankie. Roscoe replied, “No, because I still see and talk to him.”
Some of the most common questions I am asked are the following:
Can my animals, who are still here, see my animals that have passed?
The answer is yes
Can my animal come back to me through reincarnation and spend another life with me?
Usually the answer is no, it seems that our previous loved ones want to stay in the spirit until we can join them. This allows everything to return to the starting point so that all parties involved can have closure. Animals are the pure essence of love and do not have a karmic debt to pay. They usually don’t return, and if they do, we may not connect with them. Many people will say that they are sure that their current pet is the reincarnation of the previous one. Usually, it is the deceased pet who communicates to the new pet what they remember and what we, their parents, like and know.
However, many times our past animals will influence the behavior of our new animals or those they left behind and it is possible that we pick up small parts of their personality. In other words, it is possible for a new animal to channel the behaviors of a deceased animal.
I am often asked if animals that have passed away will be jealous of new animals brought into the home.
No way. What I hear is that your deceased animals are happy when you are happy, and they don’t want to deny another animal the joy of living with you. This is especially true with animals that were adopted from shelters and rescued from difficult situations.
Animals that have passed are capable of seeing, hearing and feeling whatever we go through.
I am often asked “Does my animal still hurt?” and when they leave the physical body behind, the spirit is free from pain. However, they may experience emotional pain when they see our unhappiness over their passing. The more at peace we are with their passing, the easier it will be for them to be around us in spirit.
Many people I speak to feel responsible for the death of their pet. This is not true. If you took your pet to the vet for health problems and the vet tells you that the pet needs surgery or some other treatment, you are choosing what is correct at the time. If your pet passes away during the procedure, you will not be angry or blame him because you acted in good faith and are doing what you thought was right to prolong his life. What is really important is what the intention was.
Sometimes people ask me if their move from the house the animal was familiar with will cause them to stay in the old house or if they will get lost trying to find their new home.
Once an animal passes, they are as mobile as they want and can cover great distances with little to no effort. Connecting with you in your new home is not a challenge for them. They will not be left behind in their old home.
Euthanasia is often difficult for the parents of a pet. Nobody wants to lose someone they love, but if your pet is hurting, the right thing to do is to let it enter the spirit. Don’t feel guilty if you have to put your animal to sleep. You have allowed them to be free again! They are their young people who are healthy in spirit and they will appreciate you sending them for free. Don’t feel guilty.
Life on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge is beautiful and heavenly. It is part of heaven / spirit and there is no way your pet cannot be happy in this lovely environment. Remember they will be there to greet you when you pass. They will never forget you because you were the love of their life.
