Thank you to everyone who came out and attended my talk on Saturday Nov. 14 on "Pets and the Afterlife" at Tysons-Pimmit Regional Library in Falls Church VA. My thanks to Alison Korker, librarian, who arranged for me to come there, set up the computer and projector for the presentation.
The room was full! I was surprised and humbled that so many people wanted to spend an hour and a half with me, hearing about how our pets in spirit communicate with us, and how living pets can detect ghosts and spirits.
There were a lot of great questions. During each talk, I'm influenced by pets or people in spirit on the other side to stress things. During this talk I was influenced to stress that pets do not want us to feel guilt for helping them cross over when the time comes.
Making the decision to let our pets pass with euthanasia is the most difficult choice a pet parent can make. It's the most powerful act of unconditional act of love we can do for our pets. At the end of the talk one of the women in the audience knew that message was for her- from her cat. She had been struggling with feelings of guilt, and her cat had led her to the talk so she could hear the message of appreciation for allowing her cat to pass in a dignified way.
During another part of my talk, I explained how some pets lead us to dogs or cats that look like them, to let us know they're around. It can even be in photos - and that's why happened to another woman in the audience. One of the photos of a cat in my presentation looked just like her former cat!
It was my last talk of the year, and I think that I was able to bring a number of people comfort and understanding.
