The Rainbow Bridge

Dealing With the Loss of a Beloved Pet: The Rainbow Bridge Poem

On Friday, September 25, 2015, our family experienced another huge loss: our beloved yellow lab Max (which you may have seen a photo or two of throughout my blog).  He lived a very happy and healthy 15 years; having given us so many dearly cherished memories. He was my bush buddy, protector (he saved my life from a bear one year!), family member, and best friend (he always knew when I was sad and/or not feeling well and tried his best to comfort me just like my Sheba had done).

It’s never easy to lose a loved one … even when we know their time of transition is near. You just cannot ever be fully prepared. While I know that Max is still with us in spirit and is likely having a blast running after birds with Sheba, my heart is heavy with grief because of course it is the physical body that we are all missing. Even as I write this in my mind I can clearly hear Max’s excited barking that he’d do whenever he saw me return home. Perhaps it isn’t a memory but actually Max’s spirit trying to tell me that he is okay and isn’t in any more pain?

It will take a bit of time to get back to a relatively normal routine in the home here, all we can do is take one step and day at a time. So in the process of doing so, I have made this post as a tribute to my precious Max (and Sheba as well – my female yellow lab who transitioned three years ago). It is my hope to give comfort not just to myself, but to everyone who has experienced the loss of their furbaby.  Below I have posted a poem about the Rainbow Bridge – all I can say is I am looking forward to meeting them there with all my heart.

I have also included a link to an article that I wrote approximately five years ago regarding animal spirits and communicating with transitioned pets.

With much love and blessings to you all,

The Rainbow BridgeAuthor Unknown
‘There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent; her eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.’

Animal Spirits: Can They Feel Our Emotions and Can We Communicate With Them?


Do Animals Have Spirits and Feel Our Emotions?

Hi do animals have spirits as we humans have? I mean when they die do the come back as spirits or angels or guides? Can they listen to what we are tryinng to tell them or do they understand our emotions of pain? I want to know about my pet who crossed over, what shall I do? Plz help Ruhi

Most certainly animals have spirits – they are living beings just like us sweetheart. Not only have I personally experienced the most undeniable return of a few of my own pets (as spirits), there have been countless reports of numerous people experiencing much of the same. Animal spirits behave much like they did when they were alive. And most definitely they do feel our emotions and thoughts in spirit just as much as they did when they were alive. One thing a lot of people say is that animals couldn’t possibly feel the way that humans do. But as an animal communicator and a life long horse trainer and worker, I have to really stress that animals DO feel emotions just like we do. It is ignorance of the human race to believe such a thing that animals cannot feel as we can or do not have spirits as we do. They are God’s creatures just as we are. Animals feel pain. They get depressed. They miss loved ones or play mates. They feel lonely or scared. My husband and I rescued over 20 horses from slaughter. As we worked with them we could see the depression in their eyes. They would refuse to eat. Refuse to be amongst the herd (which is very uncharacteristic of horses seeing as they are in fact herd animals). I have also seen first hand how dogs and cats for example can sense when their owner is about to have an epileptic seizure – they will sit beside them or even lay on top of them until the seizure passes. Same as when their owner is sad or depressed; I don’t know how many times my female yellow lab Sheba has come to me, put her head on my lap and just sat there with me trying to comfort me.

Whether they are alive or have passed on, our pets always understand our emotions, thoughts, and pain. Realize too that most pets are indeed telepathic – they can not only feel the energy surrounding their owners, they can also “read your heart.”

Ruhi, you yourself can feel your beloved pet if you were to quiet yourself, be still, be peaceful, and just listen and pay attention. You may feel that brush up against your leg or a nudge on your hand by a cool wet nose. Our pets I do strongly believe are always with us in spirit and heart just like our human loved ones that have likewise crossed over. If you wish to ask specific questions of your pet, and you cannot hear or feel the responses, you could also most certainly contact an animal communicator that works with spirits of animals as well as the living (some animal communicators only communicate with live pets, while others, as in my case, can and will do both).

I do hope that this has answered some of your questions and has helped you out a little bit. Please take care, and please try to rest easy knowing that your pet has in fact crossed over peacefully, and you should NOT harbor any guilt any more. Much love and brightest of blessings always, Lisa Caza

I need a medium help to talk to my crossed over pet. Is it possible? I have lots of qustions related. Plz help. I lost my pet, she was not well but I loved her lot and still miss her physical being… I want to know is it possible for pets to reincarnate? or do pets contact after crossing over. Do they hang around where they died? Or can they follow us everywhere even other country??? Can she see me? Is she around… I had a dream the same morning b4 she left that my hubby killed a beautiful black pregnent goat… Then I felt my grandfather who passed b4 I was born telling me don’t worry I’m there… I had never seen him but I  know it was him. I want to know was the dream warning or my grandfather had come to revive my pet to help cross over? is it possible that she will return to me as my another pet or in anyway?I want to contact her. What do I do? How do I contact her ? I want to see her,  is she in peace or she reborn again or she will come to me?

Oh it is always so hurtful and devastating when we lose our beloved furry babies. It’s just like losing a human loved one – you can never forget them and you will always miss them.

But most definitely you can certainly communicate with the spirits of our pets who have crossed over. Animals have spirits or souls just like we do sweetheart. They are most often found around their human companions (and in my experience they tend to stick around other pet companions as well – for example this one time I communicated with a dog who passed away. He was the ruler of the roost while he was alive, but still would love his cat companion to death – would even cuddle up with each other at night).

Our pets, especially when we have a very strong and deep bond with them, do in fact come to visit us every now and then (and yes some do also stay with us as well – it depends on the spirit). They can see, hear and feel us – and they do try to comfort us in our times of need … just like they did when they were alive. Also realize that ALL spirits – both human and animal – they are spirits – and they can travel wherever and whenever they wish! So please do not fear the possibility of your pet “losing” you. They will always know where you are at – just like our human loved ones who have passed on. They do not “hang around” where they died (for example in a veterinary clinic) – they prefer to be with the ones they loved prior to their death. Also realize that even when a spirit is reborn (which I am told animals can do just as much as what humans can … they are given the choice of where they wish to go upon crossing over), even when it is reborn you can still communicate with the side of the spirit that you knew. You will always be able to contact that side of your pet’s spirit … whether they are reborn or not.

A lot of your questions though cannot really be answered unless you do in fact purchase an animal communications reading sweetheart. I do feel that she is at peace, she does not feel any pain and she does see and hear you, and most definitely there seems to have been a point for your grandfather’s appearance. But I can’t get any further into these concerns without doing an
actual reading.

But you can communicate with your little girl yourself my dear. If you were to just lay down, be at rest, relax, close your eyes in a meditation visualization, ask for her to come to you – and you should be able to see her and indeed speak with her. However just be prepared that in the case of animal spirits, they pretty much take on the same forms and ways of communication as they did when they were alive. You may not get actual spoken words … the messages will be more “feelings” than anything else – of which I am sure you would be able to interpret yourself if you knew your girl real well. You would undoubtedly have no problems in understanding her and what she would “say” to you.

You’re never alone my dear – and should you wish to have a psychic pet communicator (with mediumship abilities) to help you connect to your little girl and do a reading, I would love to be able to help you in any way I can. Please rest easy – that little girl is happy now – no more fears and no more pain for her. She is so joyful right now and at peace, and I really do believe that she would only wish for the same thing for you. With love and brightest of blessings, Lisa Caza
