We’re all in “get ready” mode right now as the big blizzard (18 inches?) is on it’s way… The news is predicting quite a bit of snow, wind, and power outages so I really have no idea what tomorrow holds!
But what I do have an idea about is animals and how they go about passing over and I thought I would share that here today.
When talking about animals passing over, I always think of my dog Bella on the day she ended up crossing over. I didn’t notice anything before I left for the gym that morning, but when i walked in the door afterwards, she was sitting on the dog bed (something she never does), kind of in a weird spacey way.
I’ll never forget how she lifted her head up and wagged her tail at me four or five times. It just seemed so odd – unlike her. She was normally a much more present dog (like, you couldn’t miss her because she wouldn’t let you).
After wagging her tail, she put her head back down on the dog bed and closed her eyes. I’ve thought about that moment so many times since – and I’ve received emails, phone calls, and posts wondering the same thing I was worrying about:
Question: Do animals leave the body before dying?
So, I want to answer this question for you but I’m going to answer this question based on what the animals have told me again and again in my many years working as an Animal Communicator. What I’m going to tell you is basically straight from the horse’s mouth (psychically that is!).
Because animals choose how, when, why, and where – as well as WHO will (or won’t) be there with them when they cross over, they have the time to work the more spiritual angle of their passing.
Before passing, an animal’s spirit will begin to leave their body. Many times the animal will show me a visual of how only part of their spirit is or was still in their body at the time of their passing. The rest of the spirit is making it’s way outward, to the Light (or heaven or the Rainbow Bridge – or whatever you call it in your mind).
Crossing to the other side is a big job for a person or an animal, and the last piece of the self to experience this crossing over, according to the animals, is the physical body.
The spirit actually gets a nice head start in the dying process.
The benefit to this is that the animal is less connected to the physical world when he passes so there is less pain and less awareness.
Think of it this way – if you’re distracted watching TV while someone is pinching you, you’re less likely to be bothered by it than if you’re in an empty room watching this person pinching you.
Crossing over can work in the same way. The spirit is distracted with the separation process between the physical body and the spirit – so there is less connection to what is happening in the physical world.
Animals have told me this is the case when they are sick and dying for example, but they’ve even also said their spirit begins to leave their body when their passing is an “accident” (like getting hit by a car).
For me, knowing the answer, that animals aren’t quite there all the way when they are about to pass over made me feel so much better about Bella. If I hadn’t known that, I might have thought she was upset with me or upset that she was about to cross over.
Luckily, that is not the case for any animal. Ever. I hope this information has helped you a little bit and I’d love to know your thoughts!
