I post these 2 links hoping they may bring some comfort and help to anyone who is mourning the "death" of a beloved animal Soul.
These are interviews with medium and animal communicator Dannielle MacKinnon



and part 2:



I just watched these, and found what the lady said to be very comforting.

For anyone who already has their own communications going on, there may be some subtle differences in what happens, but what Ms MacKinnon says is very true.

Hold the love like a little light. It is all you have, or will ever have, to find your way home.

I honestly believe that what Dannielle says about our deceased animals caring so much about the evolution of our Souls -as true. Because any communications I receive from my Misty are all affection and love.
I don't hear words, just feelings from her, but it seems she is encouraging me to concentrate on that love, and wants me to have that with me more than anything else.
If I feel sad or cry a little, it doesn't seem to upset her at all. She seems to understand. But I get the sense that she knows my way forward, and to grow as a person and a Soul, is to "Be Love" more and more. That is very important to her.
In all the time she lived with me I knew these were the lessons she had come to help me with. And now she is still helping me with that.
I think that is often what they come to help us with. And if we can listen, and work with that it doesn't have to stop when they pass over.
Hold the love like a little light. It is all you have, or will ever have, to find your way home.

Mitsy's Mom..   Thanks so much for posting this interview with Danielle.  I listened to every word, as I am always actively searching for things that give me insight into Dali.  I always knew Dali was smarter than me by the way she looked at me and the love she gave, but now I really see how she was my teacher.  This is very true!  I found comfort in this and am trying so hard not to let the grief overcome me, but sometimes I have no choice.  I know my girl is still with me and I have seen her signs.  I am going to try harder after seeing this to communicate with her and to accept things better.  My girl did her job well and the lessons she taught me are forever with me, until I meet her again.  Thanks again, I really appreciated it!   Dali's mom

Dali, as much a daughter as any human...  pure love
Until we meet again

I am glad the interview is helpful.
I always sensed Misty was smarter than me too. When she came to me I had been in a mess spiritually. I was 'soldiering on' with no direction. There were a lot of gifts in my essential Self that I had kind of suppressed or even given up on, after negative things had happened which I had turned away from (I won't go into details of that) She restored me. There is no other way to explain it. She brought me back to core values. I always semi-sensed she was teaching me something -and then shrugged it off because I had learned to be cynical.
But her love got through. Truth wins, every time. We had those good years, when we lived for each moment. I let go of the past and didn't think much about the future. I lived kind of like a dog! And I changed and grew as a Human.
And in the latter years of her life, the gifts she had brought me started to sink in deeper. I began to wake up.
And when she passed, we moved onto the next stage. That is obvious now.
She has kept me on the right path. Balancing the grieving over her leaving this world, with the mission of Love she brought -is sometimes a challenge as I feel frail sometimes and just miss her. But her contact with me is a real living thing and doesn't go away (though she may be far away for periods of time)
I am still learning valuable things and she is still helping me. But at times it's like balancing between grieving and gratitude/learning (still with her living help, though now invisibly there.)
I wonder -how many of us are in a similar position, but need to listen to the love our sweet ones brought us and what they are trying to show us?
I think that sometimes we are in a very deep Soul bond with a being who has come here as another species, and yet is like a soul mate. And the bond doesn't die.
Hold the love like a little light. It is all you have, or will ever have, to find your way home.

I so agree with you Misty's mom.  I think Dali was sent here just for me and she is actually a part of me.  She taught me valuable lessons and continues to in many ways.  She took my heart with her though, and one day we will be reunited.  Until then I will continue to learn from her, her love, and strive to be more like her in many ways...giving, loving unconditional, and living each day, day by day, not looking for the future.  So odd when I see things like even Christmas decorations on sale for next year.  I have always bought them, but now I think, WHY?  One day at a time....next year will come if it does, if it doesn't I'll be in a better place.  Until then, I try to find good with each day as it makes me one day closer to being with her.

Dali, as much a daughter as any human...  pure love
Until we meet again

Yes I think they put us back in balance again. I think that might be their 'mission' with us. And I also think that might be the cause of our great grief when they move back into Spirit. We found someone who understood us -and now they are gone!
But when we listen with the Heart it's possible to see they are not really gone. Just waiting in the wings and keeping an eye on us.

I found these videos very comforting. I have suffered from extreme guilt over losing my dog and the pain that she suffered for her last 3 days with us. She was in an ICU cage at the vet's office and we were only allowed to visit for short periods of time at certain times during the day. I felt terrible that not only was her kidney failing and she was suffering but she spent most of those 3 days without her family. She was always happiest when she was with her family and I felt like she couldn't feel at peace with us choosing to put her down because that meant she wouldn't be with us anymore. But when our pets die of something like an accident, I struggle with the notion that our pets are at peace with leaving us and going into the afterlife. Does anyone have some thought or insight about this? When the woman talks about how each of our pets have a "mission" for being with us, the pets missions that she mentioned seemed so specific. But when I thought about what my dog London's mission could have been for me, all I can come up with is that she taught me what unconditional, selfless love is. But any pet owner can say that they learned this from their departed pet. I can't think of anything so specific for what London was trying to teach me. I was in high school when we got her and still mourning the death of our previous dog. But there are no personality or personal life flaws that I can think of that I was going through for which she was sent here to me. I love the video but I guess I'm struggling to find a connection to how it describes my London.

Well, no. I don't think they do want to leave us. My girl stayed very near me and her home for a while. I don't think she could even conceive of 'leaving me'. She always had to be where I was, all through her life.

But something happened which drew her more into her life in Spirit. I am unsure exactly what that was, or the mechanics of it. But she obviously found it acceptable and comforting enough that soon she began to progress naturally. And what eased everything I think was when she discovered she could come back to visit whenever she liked! Something -or someone there must have showed her that -or else she found it out for herself....I will never know.

The unconditional love they bring us has to be one of the most valuable gifts we could ever be given. And maybe this 'teaching' thing is simple. Just simply showing us that little light, so we see that so strong in our minds and hearts. Even if we are already lovingly-aligned, it does no harm to bring us another light we shall never forget in this world or the next. And how to hold onto it through everything.
Teach us.....they don't really seem like the right words to use. 'Truly love us' is better. And in that love, we learn. But even with that we still feel pain and loss and grieving when we sense anything that seems to separate us.
Hold the love like a little light. It is all you have, or will ever have, to find your way home.

I understand what you are saying that they give us their light filled with love. Most days I am still pretty teary about loosing my dear Coco, yet I have also been very reflective about the time that she had here with me. I think alot about what her purpose was for being with me. She wasnt the perfect dog by any means but as Danielle said, her imperfections or bad habits really made me have to step up and become more assertive in ways that I never was. For example, Coco had a problem with wanting to chase a car that passed by us while I was walking her. You can imagine how crazy that looked to the neighbors. Not to mention just how dangerous it was if she got loose from my grip. I must admitt that the way that I handled it was a little bit wierd as I would walk her with a halter to try to keep better control of her and I would always tie the leash around my waist. That way she could never depart from my body.I tried some training but she always went back to wanting to chase a car when it passed by! I got really strong arms from having to hold her back and she became the topic of many conversations with nieghbors.Just to mention, she never once got loose from my grip on her!! Her antics made her very well known yet she wasn't bothered or concerned with what others thought. She was just intent on doing the job that a dog of her breed would do. She was one of a kind and somehow it gave me the confidence to be more comfortable with myself. She gave me that!! I know she gave me so many gifts. And each gift was wrapped in her love for me. Thats how I will always think of Coco. A true love and a bright light in my life!! ............Sincerely, Andrea

These videos totally resonated with me.  Especially the part about the pets knowing when it is time for them.  I truly believe my Meeka knew it was her time when it happened.  It was almost if she wanted me to see it too.  I know it's years after the fact but thanks for posting these.

I too believe that animals know when it is their time. I believe though they try and hang on for us. I asked Maddie if it was time...to let me know...and she did and I made the decision..then a day later she bounced back like a pup, and I asked her again to let me know, and then she really let me know.
I talked to an animal communicator after Maddie passed and she actually told me things that I had completely forgotten about. It helped me a lot.
meeka it doesn't matter that it has been years...the love remains in our heart forever. It will be 5 years for Maddie's passing this August 4th..
Hi Mistysmamma...hugs...Judylinn
