Do Pets Reincarnate And Do They Choose Their Owners?





 Oh my Holy Spirit! You mentioned that some animals also reincarnate. Do they choose their circumstances? Particularly, do they choose the individuals who wind up as their owners?

“Oh My Linda Layli, Layli Linda! We do have a few pets who come into specific homes and therefore, they would be choosing those individuals, or that family, to share their life with. Mostly though, they come into this World Below as a general population.

You see, many animals are simply generic individuals of their species and do not have specific relations with specific people until that happens over the course of time.  For instance, most animals who become pets are treated so much like humans that they slip into their mode as a family member just as easily as another member of their breed would do. The relationship is made originally each time a new pet comes into a family. But sometimes people are reliving something…being given a second chance…and a specific animal might be a part of that drama, so We will arrange a life scenario to include the same people and pets for another go-around.

This describes past reincarnation periods and not the current millennium’s plan, as these things have changed considerably. Ever since the turn of the century, which was the turn of the millennium, things are not recreating past lives and trying to correct their flaws. All is being started over, clean and clear; so this would no longer apply on earth.

But in the Heavenly Realms, many people can still choose to live with beloved animals or simply animals in general. There is so much love and harmony going on in the Heavenly Realms that it becomes natural to seek each other out. If you have love in your heart and sincerely wonderful memories, those consciousnesses will be pulled towards you in these more fluid realms. You can count on being with so many friends and loved ones, over and over again.

Life is lovely when you love and you are populating your own immediate universe as you go along, learning more and more about the intricacies of love. This is truly what life is all about and pets tap into a certain vein of completely pure love, of which humans are capable only with non-human members of different species than themselves.  This sort of love can also be tapped into on a planetary level when a human develops a passion for something really vast and high above them: like the fragile ecology; the space around the planet; astronomy or distant space bodies.

This Pet Sphere takes a human into association with something that is technically lower on the scale than he is. Other people will delve into microscopic regions, but it’s difficult to identify with human qualities in these levels; so the animal region is the only one in which love can flow so directly between the hearts with something that is not human. This is a great experience to have gone through within a life and pets are doing wonderful things and a great service for humans by accepting them into their own family loyalties. That’s what happens when an animal’s heart accepts a human personality into its inner circle. There is a magic that occurs if that should be the case and the movement within both hearts is obvious and inescapable, even if it occurs between strangers and not necessarily owners.

It does something to a human’s love capacity to have felt that movement even once during their coursing through a material life because it resembles the normal relationships in the Heavenly Realm between many consciousnesses which resonate together. Love is very lovely, as I said before. And you love your pets like nothing else if this magic has occurred between you.”

You have said before that animals are not here to discover spirituality since they already have that Upper Connection. In the light of Your above answer, it sounds as if one of their functions is to trigger certain human emotions that could not be experienced any other way.

In discussing marriage as a valuable human learning experience, not available through any other means or by thinking of human reaction to infants of their species, especially their own, we can hold these various common themes aloft for examination and comparison. Each is valuable and each falls into a distinct heart-feeling category all its own. There’s a Purity-of-Love Factor, there’s a Loyalty-Factor that becomes very identifiable upon examination. Of those three episodes, only the Pet Love experience is unchanging. Marriages evolve and  can dissipate as far as intensity goes. Even an unconditional love for an infant frequently becomes morphed and complicated as the human grows. That love often becomes conditional, as do feelings for spouses.

But a loyal love for a pet deepens over time; often through a life-long association with them. Once forged, that love and loyalty remains unconditional. That’s pretty doggone miraculous, isn’t it?

You are tapping into realities that should be obvious to everyone. These feelings are pretty much the same for all humans who extend themselves to include an animal into their own personal heart and life space. This reality is open to everybody but is not accessed by all. And that is okey-dokey with Me, but it IS a hidden reality on this smorgasbord of love that is spread for your human race. This is one of the blessings flowing in from your Universe’s bounties.

Whether you take advantage of it or not, is often up to personal circumstances, but people, sometimes in life, will enjoy tasting the wonders of this quality and their capacity for love. Do you feel a heart-movement, a little flutter, or a pull in the chest, when you communicate with a beloved pet friend? There it is! The purity of Love!”


Eighteen months after the above Post was written, I received this comment about it. The posting below appears on August 20, 2012, but I am adding it here, as well, since it expands and amplifies what the Holy Spirit explained above.

In checking my email I found a new comment about a post which I wrote on this site in April, 2011, “Do Pets Reincarnate And Do They Choose Their Owners?”  The writer’s dog died and he must have gone to the internet seeking solace about pets and their death. Below is his sincere comment and I will ask for dictation so that I can send him an answer as soon as possible.

Hi, I lost my beloved dog Duke today. It was extremely hard to consume. I feel very broken right now. I miss my Duke every minute. I just want to know everything is okay after their reality life here on earth. Is it? What happens if I may ask? I fear for him, I just want him to go to the right place. I love him so much. A reply would be so appreciated. thank you. I love you boy.  Anthony Cardenas

Just as I picked up my pen and notebook to write, the Holy Spirit said: “This is what We’re all about!”  Then, as I copied Anthony’s question into my notes, I was so aware that I, personally, would  have no idea as to how to answer this loving, heartfelt plea for upper understanding from this dear, bereaved man. I don’t know the answer to this question myself because, other than that one posting about animal reincarnation, I’ve never dug into the story about animals and their immediate experiences after death.

But first, Anthony, I feel connected to you just from reading your pure and loving words about Duke and the way that you feel about him. What a lucky dog he was! I imagine that he misses you, too, just as much. But let’s find out what the Holy Spirit is waiting to say just now as I write. Oh, my Holy Spirit! What can You tell Anthony about Duke now since he has passed over to Your Dimension?

“Oh My God! This is what We are all about! (He is repeating this many, many times.) We want people to ask Us things like this! It is so wonderful that Anthony looked up some information on the Web and found this chance to ask such a question because it is so clearly evident that he believes in the Upper Realm and wants the same for his beloved pet, Duke. But, since animals can’t talk about this to their humans, he has no way of knowing that Duke is just romping around, wishing that he could lick his dear master’s face once more. And he really, really, really loves this Anthony, who made him so happy while he was on Earth. Now, Duke has gone on but is not very far away from Anthony.

Listen to Me, Anthony! Wherever you go and whatever you do, your Duke is right by your side!

It’s funny that you should mention it, because most people don’t even think of animals or their pets doing much living after death. That is an advanced idea, even about humans and their souls surviving a death on Earth and waking up in the Next World. But it’s very rare for humans to even think of an animal surviving and going on, full of life and renewed youth into eternity.

But animals are always more likely to continue in that World Above because of their innate purity of being. Duke must have been WONDERFUL to have inspired such a wonderfully-deep emotion in your heart. Obviously, he helped you enormously in learning how to give and receive love, even to your fellow humans. This combination of you and your dear, dear pet goes above and beyond most of the animal/human connections and becomes Something Historical to those of Us, Up Here in the Next World.

It doesn’t always happen this way, but when it does, then that becomes a true love story which sets an example for Earth and the humans who populate this planet. Anthony & Duke! There it is! Your story would have been noticed and remarked upon, anyway, but now you have really brought it to Everyone’s attention.

You wanted to know what happens when a dear doggie like Duke passes out of his earthly life: Well, it’s very similar to when a spiritualized human crosses over. There is always a Greeting Family there to happily welcome him back. Every one of these little consciousnesses that have come into an earthly existence is greeted when they return from their travels. Their family wants to know intimate details about their physical life and all the characters in it. So, they will be full of joy to learn what a wonderful life their Dukie found when he went down into that dangerous material plane of existence.

These animals don’t come to Earth to advance themselves spiritually, since they are already well-developed along those lines. They come to help humans become spiritualized and to learn how to purely love another consciousness quite different from their own. This is not a safe assignment for so many animals; even for dogs and cats, which have a much better chance of surviving well than other types of beasts of the animal kingdom which must frequently interrelate with humans.

The love existing between you and Duke has added to the quality of the total amount of human love on Planet Earth”

(This sentence came out slowly, word by word, as if He were filled with emotion and choking it out.)

“Thank you for saying that, Linda Layli! Thank you, Anthony, for asking Me this question. I can assure you that your darling Duke is in great spirits and will be waiting for you in your Family which will be here to welcome you whenever you are privileged to return Up Here to your home. I will be there too, because now I feel very close to both of you.”

Here is another answer to a question generated by the above post, almost a year later:


Marilyn’s 14-year-old dog, Bungie, died in her arms the other day of bladder cancer. She cannot stop crying over his loss and asks about Pet Reincarnation and how their little souls enter their new bodies? At conception? At birth? At awareness of self? She can’t stop hoping that he will come back and she also has the pull to bring home another little Sheltie. Oh my Holy Spirit! What is Your answer to Marilyn’s questions?

“Oh My God! This is a wonderful Bungie dog! He is right here.

Is it too noisy and sizzly in here? (I’m sitting at a kitchen table with others milling around and the activity has just increased.)

It’s very noisy and sizzly but Bungie is asking to go ahead. Basically, all of these pets can choose what they want to do next because they are not in this world to improve themselves. They are here for the sake of their humans and it is so good for these people; as well as for the Earth’s supply of the Loving Quality, which is necessary for the baseline functions that have to be performed by Creation Itself, in order to maintain everything on this planet.  We depend upon these pet combinations to help in the survival of all creatures. They counterbalance those angry feelings that some humans always generate. So, Bungie has done well during his long stay upon this Earth. I don’t know if he wants to go down again. What do you say, Bungie?”

“I do want to, but I don’t want to……”   (It’s just too noisy in here! I must give this more time and attention, so we shall return to this dictation tomorrow.)

Now, it’s the next morning and we’re in a quieter environment so I’d like to continue this very interesting topic. Oh, my Holy Spirit, I hope that Bungie wasn’t too unhappy with his treatment last night. Can we begin again with Bungie’s wishes for his future?

“Yes, We can and no We can’t. He is not here right this minute. Maybe he will be drawn to Us as We discuss this point. You are becoming the point of connection between these pets and their former owners. Basically, you are the Dead Dog Whisperer.

Anyway, there is a bit of confusion about Pet Reincarnation. To them, an earth Life is not as rewarding as life is in the Higher Realm where they go when their physical life ends, So, to come back down again for the sake of a bereaved owner is a very large sacrifice and it often means, at least some of the time, that they will survive the death of that owner. After that, they must take what they get in the way of loving care for the balance of that little existence, which they extended only out of sheer love. Ironically and suddenly, they are then in the same grieving position that their beloved owner was once in. You have all heard variations of the story of the loyal German Shepard, who keeps vigil over his master’s grave, going on seven years now. This is not a very happy position to be in and every pet is glad to escape that necessity when they are the ones to die first. So, that is the dilemma at the core of these pet reincarnation issues.

It is one thing to hope that a person will see their darling animal sweetheart at their own death during the famous meeting of loved ones, which greets successfully-returning humans after death. But, it’s quite another thing to pray and beg for the return of that very same particle of spirituality to repeat its diminution back down to earth in furry form, for another long lifetime, just to fulfil those wishes. Many do return, out of love for that owner, but they are not doing it for themselves and they are hoping that all will be well in this World Below while they are on the alternative tour of duty.

Animals are always exposed to the heavy vibrations in the world, which they have come to counter. Many of these are often found, even within the homes of loving owners, in the forms of: smoking habits; loud television or other electronic sources; family tensions; benign neglect; injury and illness; anger and the general negative vibrations which are prevalent all over this basic-level planet.

Most owners are clueless about what they ask of their very-beloved pet. Addictions are the worst offenders. Anything that changes the optimal, normal human equation, whether that is in a smell or a taste, such as tobacco produces; or behaviour alteration, is keenly felt by any animal exposed to it. They know a great deal more than any human can suspect. Many times, it is not their owner, but someone close to that person, who offends; and frequently, the undesirable equation goes on for years. Even the presence of rowdy, or naughty, children can make life very, very hard for an animal to tolerate. I say all this, not to discourage anyone from being so in love with their pet that life is intolerable without them; but to educate people as to what Pet Reincarnation really means.

Even Human Reincarnation is not automatic upon the death of every human being but is agreed upon and arranged after death, if that human needs another chance to advance and improve themselves, spiritually. Earth is a much less attractive place than the Upper Realm to which a person returns after death. So, reincarnating to a new life on earth, means choosing a lesser, but obviously necessary, future for oneself.

None of that applies to an animal, who returns to an ideal condition after a tour of duty in a battleground environment on planet Earth. Just as some soldiers will re-enlist, if asked to do so; some pets will return for the sake of love. But, it’s usually done at great sacrifice.

Ask yourself what you would do if a human love of yours so grieved over your death that they wished you back into their life as a newborn infant. Imagine that you had earned a lovely place in Heaven and were now weighing that against their desperate wishes to see and hold you once again. Would you have the maturity to know that the grieving one would, ultimately, recover from the shock of separation and would grow from the experience of finding new individuals to love….. even if those babies, those puppies, those new lovers, were not the same consciousness as yours?

On Earth, separation is normal. It is a condition of individuation. In these Upper Realms, which Bungie now occupies, togetherness can be constant, just as it is, technically, between the two of you, now. Things are just much more fluid and changeable. Perhaps, he is teaching you to adapt while you learn to “let go,” so that you can accept your new condition, rather than insisting that things always remain the same. We suggest that you simply switch your affections to a new little puppy and allow both dogs to fill your life from now on: One, from Up Here and the other, from within your loving arms. Bungie wants to say something now:

“I love you, Mommy, and I, carefully, always will. But, it’s time for you to let go of me so that I can be free to watch over you from Above. You have not been angry for a long, long, long time and it’s time to let go of many sadnesses and just be happy, happy, happy. I want you to let go of me and everything that is making you sad. And then… and only then… go out and find another little sweetheart to hold in your hands and in your heart. This is the best thing to do with us little creatures from this Higher Plane of Existence.

We can’t talk when we get down to Earth, so all we can do is speak with our barks and our eyes. But many personal and private things cannot be expressed that way. Maybe you can become instrumental in spreading this word around about the purposes of pets, in the first place? You humans are learning unconditional love from us and those lessons can be taught by every single animal coming into your range of experience. The more you help all animals, the more you grow as a human being and the better off the planet will become. It sounds too simple to be true but that’s the way that hidden meanings are tucked away, deep down in ordinary life, here in this boot camp of a planet.

So, my darling, Marilyn, I give you my blessings to love another dog as much as you loved me and to then learn something about the deeper, and deeper, and deeper significances behind every little thing occurring on this planet of ours. I’ll see you Up Here, Darling, but I don’t want to reincarnate again. So, this is a good way to let you know that.

It’s not you; it’s the wonderful position that I am enjoying right now. I can’t wait to see you again and to take you for a long walk, just like we used to do!”

“This is The Holy Spirit again. Your question, Marilyn, about the timing and details of the process of Pet Reincarnation are a little too complicated to answer. The joining of consciousness with the material of a new body is simply an organic process that happens during the maturation of the embryo and is in place by the time of birth. The nature of that little consciousness is also influenced by its experience from then on; as with humans.”
