As someone who has had the ability to get messages from spirits of people and pets since I was a teenager, there is absolutely nothing that makes me angrier than hearing that some "Religious people" tell pet parents that "animals have no soul," and that "animals don't go to heaven.' That is SO stupid. Really. Yes, I said stupid because their ignorance hurts grieving pet parents and their children. Those people that say animals have "no soul" simply don't know what they're talking about.
FIRST, LET"S DEFINE A "SOUL": EVERY living thing has a soul. A Soul is the combination of memories and personalities and intelligence. We all know that pets learn, they have love, they have memories (just don't feed them on time and they'll let you know), and they all have their own personalities. OF COURSE ANIMALS HAVE SOULS.
This blog is not to put down religions (because not all of them believe in the "no soul" idea). However, please keep in mind that religions only say what their religious books tell them. It's important to remember that many religious texts were written for primitive peoples when no one understood science, behavior or the afterlife. In fact, people who continue to say "animals have no souls" have never talked with spirits on the other side as mediums do. So, how can they make these ridiculous claims that pets have no souls? Answer; They can't. They have no idea what they're talking about and it does so much harm to grieving pet parents. It's maddening!
I have seen my family dogs on the other side in the light waiting for my dad.
I've literally received THOUSANDS of messages from pets who have given me so much detail, that I couldn't possibly know - and they've proved their identities. In fact I've received SO many messages, I wrote "Pets and the Afterlife 2" that contains many of them.
So, next time a person of a religion tells you "animals don't have souls" tell them they most certainly do and you know someone who has proven it countless times over.
In fact, I'm sure that any dog, cat, rabbit, etc. has a better chance of crossing over before those people. Of course the religious person will find out how wrong they are when they die and transition to spirit!
SO, take heart. Your dog, cat, horse, bird, etc. will ALWAYS be connected to you and will be waiting for you on the other side.
