Who this Meditation for Communicating with Pets After Death is For

You can use this meditation to feel closer to your pets that have crossed over, animals that in the crossing over process, and for animals that are still alive.  There are many benefits of meditation and to include your beloved animal in the process, you’ll receive even more.

You’ll have the most success with this energy meditation if you first understand how communicating with pets in the afterlife really works.

Going With the Flow For Communicating with Pets After Death

We’ll also be relying heavily on imagination during this energy meditation because imagination has no limits. This makes it easier to create the connection.

If you think you’re not good at using imagination, try this: think of a pink elephant standing on a tiny beach ball. There! You did it. That’s how hard you need to work to get the benefits of meditation with your beloved pet. Your goal is to let your imagination go where it’s going to go – and trust that this is what is supposed to happen.

Three Ways Your Pet in the Afterlife May Communicate With You

When you’re learning how to meditate with your pet in the afterlife, there are three main methods that your pet may use to connect with you.  Watch for these signs from deceased pets:


As you do this meditation, you may find that you’re imagining your pet looking different or that different pictures, scenes, and environments are popping into your imagination. This could be your pet driving the meditation.


Even though you’re using your imagination to do this meditation for positive energy and connection with your pet, you may still hear sounds! Perhaps you’ll hear a bark outside your office or nails scratching or maybe you’ll hear her name… Don’t overthink it, just let the sounds arise as they arise and trust that they are part of the meditation.


Sometimes during your energy meditation with your pet, you may feel overcome with an emotion. Usually, these emotions are emotions that your pet is creating for you, during the meditation. Most often those emotions are joy, excitement, happiness, and love.

Another way that this meditation for communicating with pets in the afterlife may affect you is in your physical body. Often, as signs from our deceased pets during the meditation, our animals will give us chills or a feeling like… they are sitting right there next to us during the meditation!

More Ways For Communicating with Pets in the Afterlife

I also have a video on the Dream Connect Method. This is the method that I’ve created through my work as an animal communicator to help you receive a visitation and get signs from deceased pets. If communicating with pets in the afterlife is your goal, the Dream Method is an even more in depth way to  get those messages!

    I wanted to attempt this as I’ve been grieving over my beloved Pet Tiny. She passed away a year ago and as the days have past. It has never become any easier, but the ghost of her. I see randomly. My husband and I both catch glimpses but when you least expect it. We both know it’s her. I had tiny since she was 6 weeks old. She died at 11 from heart failure and I had to make that choice I cried about ever having to make. So suddenly. I’ve been searching for ways to communicate with her to just know where she is when she is not visiting us. I came across this website and listened to your video and really wanted to do this, but I did not want to do it alone. I wanted my husband next to me. I begged him for 2 days and finally last night he agreed. We brought her into our room (her urn) she stays on a shelf I made for her in our living room and a photo of her. I prayed to God first and then we got comfortable. We held each others hands and I told him it might not work because we are both calling for her at the same time, but I was curious to know what might happen. We started your video. I could feel myself go into a deep relaxation. It felt as if I was no longer in my room, the sound inside my room faded away and I no longer could hear myself breathe. The forest I saw was dark with little light like laterns every so often. It was really hard to focus. I came to the door. It was a brown door, but then my phone alarm went off because I have diabetes and it sounds off if my sugar is high or low. It ruined it. I started it over. This time found myself back in those dark woods with little light. I came back to the brown door. I opened it. The stairs were very dark almost black inside. I finally made my way up them and reached a very bright white door. I tried opening it but inside was all dark. Black. Nothing. At that same time. I forgot to mention I had Tiny’s urn box on my chest and her picture. It fell from my chest to under my chin suddenly and it scared us both. I litterally jumped so high. I didn’t even feel it moving. At that point it was ruined again. We both agreed we can’t do this, but he was crying. He was crying so badly. He said he was listening to your video, but he didn’t see the forest or the doors. He saw a very bright place. He said it was very bright white, he could also see green grass and sitting there was Tiny. She was just sitting there. She looked happy and behind her was all his past dogs (I never met) he said it was a fast picture, it happened quickly, but he felt a lot of happiness. He kept saying he wanted to stay there longer. He wanted to see more, but that the urn falling and us getting scared ruined it. When that happened everything went away. He cried all night and kept saying wow, wow, wow. He cried himself to sleep. I believe Tiny showed him where she was , Tiny showed happiness, Tiny showed him she is in a beautiful place when she doesn’t come to visit us. This is what I believe and it brought me peace. I believe this is why I saw only darkness and black and why everything was dark for me. I also felt like I couldn’t imagine as well because I was also very cold. My husband was more under the blanket. It was harder for me to visualize anything. Can you do this with your eyes open? I feel like I can imagine things or make pictures better with my eyes open?

    Do you believe she showed him?

      YES, I do believe the happiness, the brightness, the lightness, that Tiny showed was really from Tiny. The icky stuff can sometimes happen if we’re not in the best space to be connecting in. It doesn’t mean anything bad – it’s more like a “hey, not now” sign. Thank you for sharing your story!

    I don’t know if I felt anything. I did actually cry a little. And felt sad. I don’t think I got a message. How can I tell?

    My Cavalier died just over a week ago from mvd. I saw him in the room after the steps and immediately started bawling, joy and sadness all together. He was shaking his tail as per usual all happy and I cried my eyes out.

    Thank you for the lovely meditation. The vet will be coming to the house to put down our 17-year-old dog Stella in a few hours. My son was 9 when he got her and he just turned 27. Its going to be difficult to say goodbye, but the message I got during the meditation was just what I needed. She said to me, as clear as day, “Don’t feel guilty; you’re doing the right thing.”

    I know my other dog KC, whom we lost 13 months ago, will be there to greet Stella as she transitions. I’ll be curious to see if Stella communicates with me as much as KC does. KC was my soul dog and I feel her presence often.

    Thanks again, Danielle. This was perfect.

    The first time I did this and saw my beautiful Fleur I felt a tingling in my body and a few tears of joy. The second time I felt Fleur was saying to me that there are no doors, I am with you always and you don’t need to go through any doors.
