Over the Rainbow Bridge
‘Over the Rainbow Bridge’
That is the saying when your pet passes away. It’s lovely to think that they will come over this bridge and through a rainbow into the spirit world. Pets are such a huge part of our lives and it’s absolutely devastating when they pass away. But they do not leave us – they are always in our memories, but can also be around us in our home or where our pet lived.
Lots of people say that they received signs from their animal friends that are in the afterlife. They contact you through dreams or little signs. For example, you can feel them beside you on your bed or where they used to be on the sofa or on the floor. A song might come on the radio that reminds you of them.
Sometimes you have to look for the signs, and they can be the same as a human that has passed away where they send you things like feathers, pennies or other objects.
Our pets have their own place in the spirit world where they are all healthy and happy. But they can visit us on the Earth plane whenever they want to as well as our loved ones in the spirit world.
Our pets will be waiting for us when it’s our time to go over to the spirit world. Animals are amazing and a lot of them can have psychic abilities when they are alive. They can sense illnesses, detect spooky situations and even stop accidents. How amazing!
They do not stop when they pass away either. Once over the rainbow bridge, they will always be near you and will intervene when they think you are in danger or you need to go to the doctor’s etc.
I would like to give you a meditation that you can record, so you can play it back when you want to listen, relax and connect with your animal friends. It’s ok if no animal appears during the meditation – that’s fine. Just tell them that you love them and the next time you do it they might come through. However every time you do this meditation they will be around you.
Walk in the Woods – meditation
Find a quiet time to sit and relax.
Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, imagine your Guardian Angel behind you, the huge wings covering your body in protection.
Now see yourself walking in a field. In the distance is a beautiful wood. You move closer, noticing the large trees and hear birds singing. The sun is shining and coming through the trees and your angel is walking beside you.
Eventually you come to a clearing in the woods. You can see a bench in the distance. Walk towards the bench and sit down.
Take a few moments to enjoy the peace.
Take a few deep breaths. Look into the trees. Can you see movement? Is it your beloved animal friend walking towards you?
Does your animal have a message for you? What is it?
Or just feel relaxed and feel the unconditional love around you. Enjoy your animal friend’s company.
When you feel ready, watch your furry friend walk away and disappear back into the woods.
It’s time for you to walk back through the woods with your Guardian Angel by your side.
After a while we come out of the trees into the field where you started your journey. Thank your Guardian Angel for their protection.
Open your eyes and come back into the room. When you are ready, place your feet firmly on the floor and imagine roots going deep into the earth to ground you. Have a drink and a bite to eat.
Meditation is a lovely way to connect with anybody that has passed away – your loved ones or your animal friends. Over time they will come to you through meditation but it is nice to just relax and know that they are around you.
