From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
Animals Visiting After Death

Each month, many people who have lost their animals contact me to communicate with their deceased animal companions. There are many questions that are similar including, how is my animal companion doing, is my animal companion free of pain now and does my animal companion visit me.

In this article, we will discuss the last question. The answer is yes. Our animals do return to visit and watch over us. In fact, many tell me that after they leave, it is their job to watch over their last family regularly until the deepest of their grief is gone.

Of course, with this question usually comes the question of whether or not the person will see the visitor or know they are there. Unfortunately, many times the person does not realize their animal companion has come back to visit. In particular, the animals tell me that when their person is in a state of deep grief, this grief blocks their ability to realize what is around them.

Some people have mentioned that their remaining animals will sometimes stare at what looks like nothing or stare at a blank wall. Our animals are much better at seeing spirits than we are and many times this is a sign that you are being visited.

Over the years, my clients have shared their experiences this area. Some just catch a brief glimpse of their animal’s spirit or they are visited in a dream. Others sense that their animal is close by due to the sense of calmness that comes over them.

In this month’s newsletter, I would like to share an experience written by Sharyn J. of Bethlehem, PA regarding the visit of her dog, Satchmo, some years ago. It is beautifully written and very touching.  I hope it will inspire you to share your personal stories with me about visits that you have had from your deceased animal companions. If you are in agreement, I may publish those in an upcoming newsletter or my book that I am working on about our animal companions that have passed away and the lessons that they have shared with me.

But now for the article….

My "Satchmo" visit happened on October 4, 2009,  nearly a month after Satchmo's passing.

Satchmo's birthday was October 2nd and we always celebrated with a special birthday meal for him and his brother Bentley. Bentley, Bailey and Satchmo were with me since they were 12 weeks old and now it was 14 years later. This particular pet birthday was so different with Satchmo gone. I missed him so much, as did Bentley and Bailey.

As on all birthdays past, we celebrated with a plate of ground sirloin, doggie cupcakes complete with candles so we could make a wish and give lots of hugs. We set a plate for Satchmo and sang Happy Birthday in his honor before going upstairs for the night.

The Yorkies always slept on my bed atop a special blanket made just for them. It was Satchmo's habit to snuggle up on a spare pillow near the headboard. In fact, often I would be awakened by his muffled little barks while he contentedly dreamt his doggie dreams .

On this particular night, both Bentley and Bailey resisted sleep and sat at the foot of the bed with their gaze fixed on a spot in the corner of the room. They barked and wagged their tails happily at what seemed to be thin air. I eventually settled them down and turned out the lights so we could get some sleep and finally we all drifted off.

It was nearly 2 a.m. when I awakened. My next recollection was that of someone standing in the corner of the room in the very spot Bentley and Bailey so insistently barked at hours earlier. I sat up and looked at the foggy form that hovered about a foot off the floor. Immediately I felt a sense of calmness and peace. I knew that the profile of the figure was that of a man holding something in his arms. The outline of the figure was so familiar to me; I'd have recognized it anywhere--it was my deceased husband, Curt, who had passed away six years earlier. In fact, Satchmo and Bentley were a special gift to me from Curt.

I leaned in to look closer but was unable to make out what it was that Curt held in his arms. There were no words spoken between us, just an overwhelming sense of tranquility and a knowing that everything was okay with Curt.

I sensed that I should put my head back down on my pillow so I did. From where I lay I could see Bentley and Bailey sleeping soundly on their blanket even though it was dark in the room. Then I turned my head to the left and there on the spare pillow was the unmistakable body of my little Satchmo, curled up exactly as he used to sleep. He lifted his head for just a second, looked at me with his bright eyes, yawned and went back to sleep. I reached out to pet him and he was gone, but left on the pillow was the distinct impression of his furry little body that just seconds before lay curled up there.

I clutched at my heart begging for just another moment or two with Curt and Satchmo. My glance was directed as if by a gentle invisible force toward the corner of the room. The foggy form hovered there still, but now about three or four feet above the floor and more visibly turned toward me so that I could see what he held in his arms. It was the profile of my Satchmo, poised on Curt's arm just the way he used to position himself when he was held by either of us.

It was then I knew that Curt and Satchmo were together and together had come to let me know they heard and answered my birthday wish. For as I blew out the candle on his doggy cupcake, my wish was that I might see my Satchmo again and know he was okay.

Satchmo has not visited me since that night, but his loving visit was enough to tell me that wherever his gentle spirit is, he is happy, peaceful and with his 'dad".

Sharyn, I can’t thank you enough for sharing this personal and inspirational story.  I hope that it will help others see the possibilities and perhaps share their stories with me.

So keep your mind and senses open. You never know when you could have a visitor.

A Good Laugh

A man walked into the office of an eminent psychiatrist and sat down to explain his problem.

“Doctor, I’ve got this problem. I keep hallucinating that I’m a large, white, hairy Pyrenees Mountain dog.  It’s crazy, I don’t know what to do!”

“A common canine complex,” the doctor soothingly replied. “Come over here and lie down on the couch.”

“Oh, no, doctor. I’m not allowed up on the furniture.”

A Quote from the Heart….

Since this is Valentine's month, I thought I would share a beautiful sentiment from a horse that I communicated with many years ago. His idea and the emotions that he shared will always stay with me because they truly do simply express how our animals view their life with their family.

So, from the heart from an abused horse who was finally in a loving home….

"The most important thing I have is a family that loves me. So many other animals do not know this feeling. It really is sad because the best feeling there is, is to be loved by a human."

Customer Comments

This month, I am sharing just one “Customer Comment”. Linda M. of Los Angeles, CA shared her in depth thoughts with me after I have communicated with her deceased cat, Ricky each month for a year. As with all of us, Linda had difficulty dealing with Ricky’s death and looked to animal communication to help her. Here are Linda’s comments.

It has been a year since I lost my beloved cat, Ricky Angel, to three types of pervasive cancers. The loss caused me tremendous anxiety and emotional breakdowns. I made one of the best decisions when I connected with Danielle. We have had 12 monthly communication sessions with Rick Angel since his passing 1/13/17. These sessions brought me through my pain and mourning because each month, I talked to Ricky (through Danielle) and I had a constant update of his current whereabouts and activities in the spirit world. I always looked forward to that monthly “phone call”. I am better now because I know he wants me to move forward and is always with me in the spirit. I can finally release his ashes without falling apart as I know this is what he wants. Thank you, Danielle from the bottom of my heart. No words could describe the positive healing effect of your work in our lives.

Thank you Linda, for the kind comments about the communication sessions and my work. I pray that all my clients who have lost special animal companions can find the peace they need after their loss.

Reassurance Sessions... what they are and how they can help

Reassurance sessions can help both you and your animal through a stressful situation. Some examples are being left at home when you go on vacation, moving to a new stable, going to the kennel, having surgery, adding a new animal to household and much more. A reassurance session can prepare your animal for the changes that lie ahead as well as give you some peace of mind.

Animal Connection can share the details of the change with your animal companion and address any issues or concerns that they bring up.  We'll even provide some coping methods for you animal companion to help them get through the stressful situation.

Our customers find these sessions very helpful for their animals as well as for them, as it provides peace of mind that their animal knows what is to come as things change in their lives.
