Will My Deceased Dog Come Back To Me In His Next Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, KG, who says: About four years ago my dog, Papi, passed away. I’ve never had a connection to an animal the way I did with him.

Council: The connection to animals is beautiful. They are little spirits that are here to bring you joy. Usually when the connection is so strong, you’ve gone through other lifetimes together.

KG: It’s crazy, but I loved him like a person. The love I had for him was so much deeper than the way most people love pets. Losing him felt like losing a sibling. It’s been four years and I can’t get over it. I feel like a part of me is missing.

Council: Wouldn’t it be nice to change your focus and not be sad, and not be in a place where you can’t let go of your grief, and not get over that this dog is gone? What you should be focusing on is the joy you brought each other and the possibility Papi may come back to you.

In spirit, Papi’s experiencing love and joy. There’s no sadness in spirit. It’s always the human that has a hard time letting go because they don’t realize we never really lose them. They’re around like a human form is around when it passes. And like a human form doesn’t want you to be sad about them, Papi, or any animal doesn’t want you to feel sad about them. You need to come from a place of love, and remember, and be joyous about it. The sadness keeps you stuck, and that’s not what’s wanted by the human spirit and by the animal in spirit.

KG: I know dogs can reincarnate and I just want him back. Even if he doesn’t go to me and he goes to another relative, that would make me so happy because I’m not really in a situation where I can take on another pet right now.

Council: We understand you want Papi to come back, but suppose there’s something Papi wants to experience and it needs to experience it with a different family so it can give that family what it’s looking to experience? That doesn’t mean you won’t feel Papi around you, or you won’t have time together again if that’s what you both want.

The best thing you can do is explain to Papi in your mind how much you love him. Continuously keep sending him love and feeling it back. You can ask Papi for a sign. Ask if he’s here with you and are you coming back? Ask these questions, but ask from a place of hope, happiness, and joy, not from a place of sadness.

KG: I’ve gone to pet psychics who’ve told me he’d come back, but he hasn’t yet and I’m wondering why. My Mom plans to get a new puppy soon and I feel like this would be the perfect opportunity for his spirit to come back to us. I really hope he’ll choose to.

Council: Perhaps this will be, but you have to be in a place of allowing. Papi may come back to you, or there may be another dog that needs to be with your family. You may have to learn something different from another spirit animal. But be open. If Papi doesn’t come back into physical reality, he’s still with you. You can still have conversations. You can still ask for signs. You can still feel the love. Allow everyone to experience what’s needed in this next step.

KG: My Mom’s actually told me several times in the past that she felt like Papi was her childhood dog, Tippy, and thinks since he came back to her once, he can do it again. Is this the case? Was Papi the dog my Mom had in her childhood?

Council: Yes, we do believe that was the same spirit.

KG: Also, does Papi have any messages for us?

Council: Only of wonderful love. Meditate. Sit quietly and ask to feel the love from Papi. You will feel it. If you have conversations with Papi and ask for signs, you will get them, but you must be in a place of happiness. When you’re in a place of sadness or grief, you won’t feel what any spirit, even an animal, is trying to send you.

When you speak to Papi’s spirit and ask, Can you come back? Are you around me? Send that message with love. Smile when you’re sending that message. You can think, I love you and I want to feel you around. Can you show me the way I can feel this? Can you send me a sign? Always come from a place of happiness. It’s a higher vibration.

KG: Does Papi plan to reincarnate to either me or my Mom in the future? And if he does, how can we recognize him?

Council: We don’t know what he’s planning right now. And why would we spoil the surprise? You’ll learn from this. You’ll recognize him because you’ll ask for signs, and you will see.

KG: Also I have so many dreams about Papi and I feel like it’s him visiting me. Is this the case?

Council: Oh yes. Definitely.

KG: Sorry to ask so many questions about this. I just miss him so much and I’m so desperate to feel a connection to him again.

Council: You can feel a connection when you come from a place of joy. Have fun with this. Expect many wonderful surprises. That’s all we can tell you right now.

KG: I love all my pets, but it’s just so much deeper with Papi. I can’t explain it, but I feel like he was a part of me and now that part of me is gone. Even after all this time, I’m still struggling with the loss.

Council: The first error there is that he’s not gone, and that’s what you should meditate on.

We send you all love, and light, and happiness, and beautiful experiences. Go forward on your path, whatever you choose. And always remember to bring love into every situation.

Was There a Soul Contract Between Me and My Cat, Caesar, Who Passed Recently?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Christine, whose loved cat, Caesar, unexpectedly passed away recently and she’s in shock.

The Council says when it’s time for an animal to pass over (what some of us think of as dying), the animal knows it’s their time, and often it’s easier for them to pass when no one is around. This is what The Council sees happened to Caesar.

The Council says even though Christine’s in great shock, they ask if she’s able to imagine that Caesar’s in a beautiful place with other animals and other humans, and he’s completely happy.

The Council advises Christine to stay in the wonderful memories she has when she was around Caesar, and reminds her Caesar’s spirit is still around her. She can ask for signs that Caesar is around and she’ll receive these signs. The love between Caesar and Christine will never die and she can always touch into this love.

The Council says when it’s time for Christine to return to spirit, there’ll be people and animals she knows in spirit to greet her, and The Council reminds Christine there’s a great happiness when everyone is together again in spirit.

Christine had just returned from a great holiday and picked up Caesar at his sitter’s house. The next night Caesar walked up to Christine she had the thought to give him a lot of attention. She told Caesar how much she loved him and one day they’d all be together in spirit with all the other pets he and Christine lived with. The next day Caesar passed, and The Council commented that it was wonderful she was able to do this, and Caesar was able to hear it and understand it.

Christine asks The Council how we can know our fur babies who have passed are still with us? The Council says with your mind you can go to a quiet place and speak with your cat and ask them for signs they’re close by. Your cat will come to you in a way you’ll understand that it’s there.

Christine asks The Council if our animals have a soul contract with us? The Council says sometimes they do. Christine and Caesar have a soul contract and The Council feels they’ll be together again.

Sometimes an animal will come into many lifetimes with you to help you go through the different phases of being with an animal – learning what the animal can teach you and what you can teach the animal. Sometimes an animal will come into your life because you just need an animal. When you’re at the point in your life when this lesson is needed, an animal will show up in your life.

Grandfather’s Passing

This post in inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, about death and the experience we have during the last days and hours of our lives. Her grandfather, who loved her deeply, is currently passing and she wonders what he’s experiencing while she’s with him in hospice.

The Council says each person has their own experience when it’s their time to pass. Her grandfather was connecting to others in spirit who passed on before him, and as this became clear to him he would come back into this reality. The Council describes it as going back and forth with one foot in each place.

Sarah asks The Council for a better understanding of what her grandfather was experiencing in his last hours, a better understanding of the connection the two of them shared, and what things will be like for him after he passes. The Council says where he is after his passing he only experiences joy and love. The releasing of her grandfather’s body and returning to spirit was a great experience for him.

The Council asks Sarah to review this lifetime with her grandfather. What has she learned from him? The Council believes Sarah and her grandfather have come together after a previous lifetime where there was just the two of them. They were uneducated and living off the land. In his current lifetime it was important for her grandfather to support his family so he didn’t continue the pattern from that past life where there wasn’t enough food and shelter.

The Council says as Sarah gets past the grief of her grandfather’s passing she can look for all the things in his life to be grateful for. They ask Sarah if she can take this perception of gratefulness and love, and give it to the people that are around her in her current lifetime. And can she find things to appreciate in each of these people before they pass on?

Sarah asks if it’s important to be with her grandfather as he passes on. The Council says each person is different. Some have no idea you are sitting by the bed for days because they’re in conversation with the spirit world and they’re resting before leaving the body. Some become conscious again and are very happy to have family present.

Sarah asks if he’s aware of what’s going on when he appears to be unconscious. The Council says most people are aware, even when you think they’re not. They can still hear. Sometimes the spirit is lifting out of the body and they’re able to see who’s in the room even though they appear unconscious.

Sarah asks if her grandfather is experiencing fear. The Council says they don’t see this for him. Some do experience fear until they see the light and the other people who have crossed over before them, and the fear leaves them. As they see spirits and angels and experience all the love that is coming towards them, there isn’t any fear going into the light.

Sarah asks if she’ll experience more of this lifetime with him, but in another form? The Council says to ask her grandfather for signs he’s around, and ask for dreams. Speak with him as if he’s still in his physical body and see what happens. As she tells her grandfather what’s going on in her life, see what happens around her and she’ll experience the connection is still there.

Sarah closes by saying she’d like to understand the end of life process from a spiritual point of view so she’ll be able to navigate it in the future. The Council says anyone who is getting ready to leave this particular lifetime, look for the light, think of people you have loved who have gone on before you, feel the energy of love, and it will carry you right into the spirit world.

Listen to our 8-minute session (below) to hear The Council’s answers for Sarah and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about them.

Believing the Earth is Flat, and Connection With Spirit

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Audrey, who appears to have some difficulty accepting The Council’s idea that what we believe creates the reality we experience. Audrey uses the example of the Earth being round instead of flat, which she appears to believe is an incontrovertible scientific fact. But interestingly The Council seems to suggest that when people believed the Earth was flat, their belief created a reality where the Earth was flat.

The Council says the Earth is made up of energy that is able to shift shapes with the thoughts we think about it. And they add that many people aren’t at the point where they believe this is possible. The Council says at one time the Earth was flat, but along came others who began to believe the Earth was round. And because of the strength of this belief they found a way to create proof of the Earth’s roundness.

At the time people thought the Earth was flat they also didn’t think the Earth revolved around the Sun, and The Council says these thoughts created that reality and the Earth didn’t rotate around the Sun at that time. As we grow and want to make life more interesting and challenging, our thoughts change, we reach for more, and we create more. The Council adds that how we perceive our universe will change again in the future.

The Council says science and facts depend on the beliefs of people. Once you accept a thought and it becomes part of your belief system, and more and more people accept that thought, your reality will change to create that thought and you will have that experience.

Audrey asks The Council how she can stop being so left-brained. And The Council recommends looking into topics that she doesn’t currently believe and ask herself if she’d like to experience this, and she will begin to create what she focuses on and desires.

Audrey says she wants to connect with spirit. And The Council reminds her she already is connected to spirit and she is spirit. She has only to ask her higher self for signs of who she truly is and how she can create. Let her higher self give her a sign that she’s the creator and she’s not just here mumbling through this life. And be open to how it comes. Her higher self will bring her what she asks for.

Audrey says she does many things like meditation and yoga, but she doesn’t seem to connect with spirit. The Council says these things are helpful, but the feeling of connection will come from within her. They recommend she picture within her heart a small flame, which is a small part of her as spirit. Watch this flame grow daily as she meditates on this. As the flame grows Audrey will become more aware of who she really is and she will feel more connected to the spirit she is.

The ideas in this post may be challenging at first, but listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for Audrey and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
