Here are some examples of questions received by one animal shaman: It was a Passover Seder and the time had come to open the door to allow the prophet Elijah to enter, should he choose to do so. My step-daughter opened the door and in walked our Elijah. He was a stray and of course he had to have that name. About five years old at that time, he lived with us for the next 15 years until a couple of months ago. He and I were joined at the hip my wife said. I miss him so very much. I did see his spirit once stretching on the front of a living room chair. I miss him beyond belief. —George Is my dog Tommy, who has crossed over, still with me in spirit? We had a strong bond. Does he have any messages for me? I'm finding it hard to connect with him. Thank you.—Savanariain We posed these questions to Rose De Dan, who practices as an animal Reiki shaman, who responded: George might find a healing session with an energy professional of benefit in rebalancing after the loss of such a strong friendship. It really can smooth off the rough edges of the grieving process.While some people like George are gifted with experiences of "seeing" the spirits of their loved ones who have crossed over, others, like Savanarain, may find it difficult to feel the connection or obtain information. The sense of loss we feel can prevent us from being grounded and balanced, and the lack of confidence that can result from negative mind chatter such as:"I'm not a professional.""I don't know how to do this.""I won't do this right, what if I get it wrong?"Such thoughts can interfere with clear communication even when speaking with loved ones who are still present in the physical world.While it is always nice to consult a professional animal communicator I encourage my clients to trust that they, too, can receive information. Finally, trust that your animal companions are nearby. Their love for us is unconditional and eternal.
