I really have mixed feelings about this book. Having had to help my wonderful cat of 18 yrs move on the the other side this past week-- I got some books to read for comfort. There is much in this book that I do like-- I definitely believe that animals have souls and that they pass to the other side. I like that they may find ways to comfort us and let us know that they still exist. (I have had a couple of incidences myself that already had me convinced of that!)What I didn't like was the part where she says animals go on to reincarnate within I think it was 6-10 days of their passing. In my mind, I expect my beloved "babies" to be there to greet me when its my turn! It almost sounded like they were sort of just 'well, time to move on' and that was that. I didn't find any comfort in that at all.I also didn't like the whole hanging out in some formless place that is described as pure bliss. Yeah-- bliss is great-- but its not how I'm hoping it will be when I cross over! Sounds more like some kind of drug- induced moment then it does the other side.It just doesn't jibe with what other well-known credible psychic mediums have said about our pets and the other side.I do have to say that there were times when it seemed my cat who crossed over this past week was channeling another cat who crossed over several yrs ago. Once in awhile- my husband and I would look at her and say that she was channeling him again-- acting completely against her own personality. lolOverall- it wasn't a bad book. It had good moments in it. But I found another book about animals and the afterlife that I like much better.
I am in the process of going through the dying days of my beloved dog. I found this book late last night by accident(?).I truly thought today may be my dog's last day with me. I put on some calming music, sat on the couch, and began to read, my dog sitting with her head on my knee. I will not go into the details, but for both my pet & myself, it turned into a very comforting experience. We all have our own beliefs, and for some this will touch you, others may not understand, or believe. But it is certainly worth the journey. It was very helpful to me.Synchronicity. There are no coincidences.Thanks Lori.
As a professional in the counseling field, Lori Spagna's Animals in the Afterlife eBook provides excellent information for people and teaches them simple ways to gently work through the grieving process. Lori presents the subject in a loving and inspirational way. I enjoyed learning about the animals' perspective on death and dying and what they experience. I also really appreciated the authentic, first hand wisdom she shared about the death and dying process, which really shed a lot of light on this topic. Not many books on death and grief talk about this, so it is very interesting and helpful to hear it from a Professional Animal Communicator, Intuitive and Energy Healer. I would highly recommend it to my clients and friends. Fantastic Read!!!
An animal's death and dying is such a tough issue to deal with in life. Lori brings such insight and depth to this process and to what animals go through. The idea of "turning grief into a gift" ......I'm so very happy she addressed that for when my Comet died some years ago it was the most horrific and yet such an expanding and awakening event of my life. I truly wish that everyone who goes through the death of one of their beloved creatures would be able to read this book for the comfort and the beautiful gift that it really is. Five stars truly are not enough for this book.
Oh thank you so much Lori Spagna for this wonderful book. It literally saved my life and changed my life after the devastating death of my dear cat. Just about everything you wrote rang clear with what I already knew somewhere inside and aided me instantly in moving through my profound grief and into a new perspective of death, grief, and the rest of my life.Although some of my own feelings about life and the afterlife differ from yours, the sheer compassion and profundity of your book was very healing for me and was so needed. Grief at loss of human or pet can be a reeling, extremely painful experience. Books like yours can literally save lives that become derailed by the loss experience so I thank you for bringing me back. My cat's death put me into a spiritual emergency and I now am able to move forward and I know my life will change. You helped me understand the lessons and service my pet's life gifted me.
Totally recommended if you have lost one of your "pet-children"......Certainly eases the burden of sadness a bit.......I will have a large group of "friends" waiting on me when I kick the bucket........
Animals in the Afterlife is an open and valid opinion about pet loss-the afterlife gained through personal experience.The author really does a wonderful job opening the mind to the positive in death.Pointing out that losing a pet is devastating too.I agree with the author and it makes sense that animals have souls too. My personal experiences with animals also enables me to agree that their purpose could very well be ours. Would definitely explain a lot.There is nothing easy about death and always so much to learn. What this clever and deeply experiences author had done is help explain life-souls-purpose-afterlife and everything that is interconnected with life. And given it a positive perspective. A reason to smile even when you are grieving.I believe this is a books everyone can gain from and I look forward to reading and learning more.
