Who Greets My Pet in Heaven, in the Afterlife on the Other Side?

A lot of us wonder about the Rainbow Bridge, and who will be there to greet our pet in Heaven. Find out exactly WHO will be there based on my twenty years experience working as an animal communicator with animals crossing over.

If you’re looking for relief or understanding around the grief of losing your pet, my What Your Pet Wants You To Know When They Die Video Manual can give you some much needed information and inspiration!

Today, we’re going to answer the question: Who will greet my pet on the other side? 

For some reason, animals that are crossing over seem to want to talk to me about this in my work as an animal communicator. In fact, they’ve spent a lot of time educating me about this. So, what I want to help you do today is help you learn more about, “Who greets my pet in Heaven, in the Afterlife, on the Other Side” from the animal’s point of view!

Animal Connection to the Spirit World

Animals maintain a connection to the spirit world, the Other Side, God, the universe, whatever your representation of love is. They maintain that connection in a way that we as humans do not. From the hummingbird outside my window, to the bug on the deck, to my dog, to a horse, to a bird; they all have this interconnected awareness of what it all means. We, as humans, don’t understand what it all means. We go through our days using our five senses: seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting, smelling; having types of experiences that are physical, real-world experiences. Animals have that, but they have this other piece as well.

Animals have this incredible connection to the big picture. They’ve got this connection to the other side and they never let go of that, even when they incarnate here into their physical bodies, into becoming our beloved pets, they never let go of that connection.

How Do Animals Cross Over?

I want to share with you how the crossing over works, because it’s knowing how this works that tells you who is there. When an animal incarnates into their physical body here with us, on earth, what’s happening? Their entire soul is not incarnating into their physical body. Only an aspect of their soul is incarnating into their physical body. So the visual I get intuitively is this. Only part of my dog, Tuukka’s soul is here, present in her physical body. There’s also this beam that goes up above her head. And that is the connection to, what we call “spirit, the universe, God, or whatever you want to call it,” the other side.  That stays because there’s actually a bigger part of her that did not incarnate here in the physical world, that instead, stays in spirit. 

The same thing happens with us. I have incarnated into this physical body. I have the same thing going on, which is that connection that has been maintained, where not my entire soul is here incarnated into my physical body. I still have this connection because most of me is still located on the other side in spirit, or whatever you want to call it. 

I like to use this kind of goofy visual. Imagine a disco ball, and imagine a light shining onto the disco ball. What happens? Each little reflective part reflects a piece of light, right? A little bit of light reflects off all these little, individual parts. 

Now, think of when your animal incarnated; a light shined onto the disco ball of your animal’s soul and “ding,” one of those lights beaming down became who you know as your beloved pet. 

This is also what happens with you. So all of me is not here, my disco ball is back in the spirit world. Only an aspect of me has incarnated here. 

Your Soul Family

I am telling you this because most of me, just like most of your cat, dog, bunny, horse, pig, etc;  just like most of them, is not incarnated in the physical, most of them are back in the spirit world. 

So when your beloved pet crosses over what really happens? 

You’re there, your significant other is there, your beloved animals you had when you were young are there. Everybody who’s ever meant anything to that animal and probably to you is there to greet your beloved animal because they’re all there already. When my dog, Tuukka, crosses over, I will be there to greet her even if I’m still alive. It’s kind of comforting, right? 

A lot of people worry that nobody’s there or they are hoping grandma will be there. Well, of course, grandma is there, but so is everybody else in that animal’s soul family, because everybody in your soul family includes your beloved animals.

    Hello, dear Danielle !
    I come from Germany and my English is not so good – sorry ! But I try anyway to ask my questions and use a translator : can animals “prevent” necessary therapies when it is certain for them that they want to die ? that for example no therapist had an appointment free, was on vacation or moved away or similar ? or also that no diagnosis could be made or also that acupuncture, neural therapy, homeopathy …. did not help, which surprised everyone that no improvement occurs. Does an animal have such a power and power to direct this ?

    Hi Danielle,
    I heard that pets go through an orientation period once they’ve passed into non-physical energy? What happens during this period of orientation for the pet? Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

    I don’t think that’s a thing I think in that case they would be a ghost which is just what ? Electric energy left over playing out etc etc who knows what a ghost is exactly but I think that’s what you might be referring to when you say chooses not to go into the light

    What happens to that fractal of the pet when it decides not to go into the light, decides to stay on the earth plane? Who, if anyone, greets them?

      Animals have never spoken to me about a fractal of a pet. From what they tell me, the system just works. I’ve never run into any being that has said they chose not to go into the light. I hope that helps!
