Do All Dogs Go To Heaven? Pets and The Afterlife
When I was a little girl, this was one of my favorite cartoon movies.
In Spirit and on Earth, animals are our spiritual companions and counterparts, so it’s only natural to wonder what might happen to each of them after they leave this earth.
If you are a pet lover like me, you might even feel like your dog, cat, parrot or hamster is your right-hand man - the person you can talk out loud to, play silly games with, ask questions no one else wants to hear, the only one who has never left you and the one who understands you on a real level.
With pets, we have an unspoken language.
We have a way to communicate with our animals that doesn’t use language or words. In psychic terms, I often call this the language of the soul. You are speaking to others by connecting at the soul level. Even without seeing a pet psychic, you usually know through subtle cues what your pets need from you.
You know when they need love and attention (some are much more subtle than others), you know when they want some alone time and you know when they’ve got an agenda or something they want to get done during the day.
Pets are our first and most honest companions.
They won’t lie to you or make false statements, and they are, in Spirit, always who they say they are and no one else - in whole and completeness.
They are pure, positive energy.
So where do pets go after they die?
Well, just like the movie states, dogs do go to Heaven. But, describing the where this Heavenly afterlife is located, is when things become complicated.
The world of Spirit and the realm of Heaven isn't somewhere else, high up and far away and inaccessible to humans.
The Spirit realm is side by side next to the Human physical realm.
Meaning, the afterlife of Heaven is right alongside us - a different realm, but yes, basically right next to the physical realm, a few feet up.
This explains why so many people can feel, hear, sense and communicate with their lost loved ones, guides, and Angels. If Heaven, and the world of Spirit, were so far away, light years even, in some distant cloud place - it'd be much harder for everyday people to connect. And it isn't. Thousands of people reunite with their loved ones in Spirit - both in human and animal form - every single day.
In fact, you may have already experienced visitations from your pet.
The world of Spirit is though, different from the realm of the physical energetically - it's less dense, more fluid and higher in frequency, what this means is - it's not a solid state realm - where things appear solid and dense like wooden tables and chairs. It's more like a gaseous state.
Moving from the realm of the physical to the realm of Spirit is much more like a phase shift, a seeming disappearance when really, the energy has merely shifted form.
Let's use water (H20) as an example. Water, in the solid state, appears as a firm, dense ice cube that can fill containers and reflect light so that it is visible to the human eye.
However, what happens when the temperature rises, the container is lifted, and pressure is released?
Dense ice can then transition to liquid water and then liquid water can transition gas and we now have water vapor. It's still water, though, still the same molecules, just now, in a different more free-state situation. In one case, when confined to certain temperature, pressure and container conditions, it's solid state - ice.
But when temperatures rise and pressures and containers shift, it can transition to a new phase.
You can feel vapor and sense it like humidity in the air when it's all around you and when you're surrounded by it. You can sense it on your skin, in your pores, and near your face, so you know it's water vapor near you, you know it's water, but as a gas, it's hard to see in some scenarios, yet not all.
Likewise, when someone, a pet or a person transitions to Spirit, alot of people equate it to this, more like a phase shift.
The point is - the realm of Spirit is alongside the physical realm - and our loved ones in Spirit have shifted into a different form, and in certain situations, you can sense and identify 'water in its new vapor form' when around if you want - start learning how here.
Now here's the thing. Once in this vaporous form, Spirits can go anywhere, meaning they get to choose their Heaven. This is how it's been explained to me by the deceased in session, and for many, they say:
My Heaven is to be on Earth, still with you.And there it is. Pets go to Heaven, but often, when they come through in sessions, they say, Wait a minute! I still come and snuggle by your feet and sit alongside you on the couch. Often, your pet loved ones show to me in sessions that they stay with you and visit as often as possible.
So pet Heaven may mean visiting you or even becoming your spirit guide.
How could it be any different?
If you, like me, care for your pet in the same way I do, you likely make his or her life an ideal version of your own life. Perhaps you even go to the grocery store, and while you forego a treat yourself, you always get one for your other half - your pet companion.
Thus, your pets often feel and show in sessions that you are as much their version of Heaven as they are yours.
Upon crossing, often, their Heaven is alongside you the physical realm, and it's still possible to sense their presence, feel their energy and identify when they visit you. Learn more in the articles below -
