Animals also experience past lives and our beloved animals often have been in past lives with us. Usually those were positive, loving experiences and they come back to give us love and support in this life.
Animals live a variety of lives – wild animals, beasts of burden, show animals or companion animals. All of those experiences have an effect on the animal’s behavior in this life.
One of the ways they support us is by taking on our emotions and even physical issues. Frequently I have to release the family’s emotions from their animals. They also, sometimes, take on our physical issues to help alleviate our suffering. People often feel terribly guilty when these come up during a session, but it is a gift of service which they offer us. The best thing we can do to prevent this is to work on ourselves, releasing our own negative feelings and emotions.
Ananda and Aranya are a lovely couple from Thailand who have had me work on their cat, Chai, several times usually due to digestive issues. Sometimes the main cause is something he’s been eating but usually the primary cause is Ananda’s emotions. If Ananda is going through something difficult, Chai absorbs his emotions to the point where it affects his digestion.
Ananda found this quite surprising. However, as it turns out, Chai was a street cat in a past life who no one fed or cared for. Ananda was a young man who started to feed him and look after him, and although he remained an outdoor cat, as was the custom, Ananda took good care of him. Chai was very bonded and grateful to Ananda and, in his current life, will do whatever he can to alleviate any negative feelings or issues Ananda is experiencing.
Angela was raised on a ranch in Wyoming and has always loved horses. That said, she’s always been slightly afraid of them as well. Since she started showing her horse, Prince, this fear has gotten much worse. Horses are very sensitive. They very easily pick up on our thoughts and feelings, and Prince had begun to respond to Angela’s anxiety and fear.
She had been working on her fears but wasn’t progressing as fast as she’d like because her anxiety arises whenever she starts riding Prince. The primary, underlying cause came up as a past life together in which Angela had been an expert trick rider who received a great deal of acclaim on the circuit. Then one day, as she was going under Prince, her foot got stuck in the stirrup and she ended up on the ground, trampled by her horse. Although she was seriously injured, she eventually made a full recovery. While she could have ridden again, she never did. I had to release her overwhelming sense of dread and horror from this past life and we also released her subconscious fear of being trampled again. At the end of our session, I spoke to Prince and his message to Angela was very clear, “We’ve done it before, we can do it again! We can be great!”
I worked with Penelope on her horse Pegasus, a majestic being who communicated to me that he had been a champion in several past lives and Penelope was restricting him in this life by being a perfectionist and too controlling. He said she could be a champion as well but she’s holding them both back because they need to perform together as a team and to do that, she needs to get out of her mind and into her body.
