Losing a pet is painful, but it’s easier if you can talk to animals.
Have you ever experienced the loss of a pet?
All animal lovers will go through this heartbreaking experience at some point in their life.
I certainly have – and it’s not easy. Here’s what I learned when I lost Peach.
Experiencing the Loss of a Pet: Peach’s Story
My elderly tuxedo cat Peach was out exploring our neighborhood one day as she had been doing for almost 20 years… but she didn’t return like she’d promised.
‘So I called her – vocally, mind to mind, and heart to heart (like I teach my students in The Heart School of Animal Communication) – but she didn’t answer.
To be honest, that’s not terribly unusual because she’s blocked me out of her mind at times before when she was in the middle of a hunt or asleep or sunbathing with the “do not disturb” sign on.
Recently she’d been showing a few symptoms of confusion, dementia perhaps? Not awful, just noticeable at times, and not terribly surprising for a still spry, energetic, almost 20 year old cat.
But when I still couldn’t find her after another few hours passed, I knew something was wrong.
Later I heard her voice in my head, feebly, “Where are you? I’m heading home, but everything is dark, and I can’t see very well. I’m hurting.”
In a panic, I headed out to look for her, following her voice and feeling my way to her.
And then I saw her and my heart fell in dismay, something was terribly wrong with her.
Stumbling and lurching and panting, heading home as best she could.
Hurriedly I went to her. When I held and examined her, I saw that her head wasn’t right.
I assured her I was there now, and she was safe. She relaxed in my arms feeling my love for her, knowing she’d made it “home.”
I gave her a little water and secured her in a towel inside her carrier. Then, I called our vet as we raced to his office.
I used animal communication to find out what happened to Peach.
“What happened, Peach?” I asked while I drove as fast as I dared, tears in my eyes.
She told me she was hit by a car when she wasn’t looking. She hadn’t even noticed where she was at the time. She’d felt disoriented, dizzy, and a bit confused.
She stumbled, then wham!
It had knocked her out.
The vet confirmed that her head was broken, her cranial bones were a mess, and she had a concussion. The injuries were severe.
With sadness and respect I confirmed with her that it was her time to go, and she said yes.
She felt complete and ready to cross over, her purpose here with me fulfilled.
And so I said goodbye to my dear friend of twenty years that day.
Through my tears, I prepared her by explaining what we would do to help ease the pain. I told her that all would be well in a moment. And so it was.
I felt her Spirit lift out of her body and the pain fade away. I felt her gratitude, joy, and love.
And I heard her voice in my head as strong and clear as a bell afterward so I knew she was all right.
Peach taught me many things about living a good life, speaking up for yourself, asking for what you want.
She taught me SO many lessons, from the time I adopted her as a tiny kitten who’d been thrown away in a dumpster and then rescued by my roommates.
Before I came into the picture and adopted her, she’d got stuck in a car engine at 8 weeks old, and broke her leg. The cast was as long as her body, but it didn’t slow her down in the least.
She was a survivor. She loved to torment the roommate’s dog, climb the curtains, and scare the living bejeebus out of us by leaping out from hiding places on the stairs.
When we watched television, Peach would sit up beside us on the sofa, upright on her haunches like a squirrel, and help herself to our popcorn, spearing one kernel at a time on her claw and munching away before grabbing the next kernel.
She gave me the best life and health advice, relationship guidance, and marriage and career counseling. She was never wrong. Not once.
She was the wisest cat I’ve ever known.
I’m so grateful she was in my life. Peach was a true gift from the Universe.
I still hear from her occasionally, and I know I’ll see her again someday.
Loving and caring about animals isn’t just about learning to speak their language, but it helps.
It’s about helping those in pain and suffering who need a voice in their recovery, a say in what happens to them. Of course, that goes for human caretakers and the animals themselves.
We went deeply into this topic in one of our fabulous Heart Wisdom Masterclasses, How to Help People through Grief and Pet Loss with special guest co-teacher Holli Shan, Certified Pet Loss Counselor.
Our animal communication students learned how to cope with the loss of a pet, and how to assist others through the process of loss and grief too.
It is one of those critical “intuitive tools” in your animal communication toolkit to have ready when you need it.
More than that, it’s a Life Survival Skill for yourself and your pets when it’s their time to cross over.
When you are good at communicating with animals, you’ll be able to help guide others through what can be one of the darkest times in their life too.
This level of Masterclass training isn’t available anywhere else.

Don’t expect the “usual” masterclass or workshop or club experience. Expect more.
Take your animal communication skills to new levels.
Because here’s the thing: If you can’t communicate when they are happy and relatively healthy, then in their time of greatest need, you won’t be able to be there for them in the way they most need you to be.
There’s no accident we are in this together.
After all, this journey isn’t just about discovering how to communicate with animals.
It’s about helping those in pain, those who are suffering, and those who need a voice in their recovery.
It’s about being the voice for animals with their own stories to tell and wisdom to share.
Take time to listen – and talk – with an animal teacher today. They know things you don’t.
And most of all, keep loving animals no matter what.
