Life Continues for Your Pet in the Afterlife…

When your pet leaves this Earthly plane…

You may wonder what happens when your pet dies and if they are okay and still near you.

Instantly, upon leaving their body they burst forth with brilliant light-filled energy as their soul ascends onto the spiritual plane. Few words can describe the intensity of the joy they feel. They are often met by your departed loved ones, both humans and animals, spirit guides, or angels as they explore their dazzling new loved-filled world.

There are a few things your pet experiences right away

With a loving guide by their side, they feel an overwhelming sense of joy and exhilaration all once. They report that their earthly pain, discomfort, or disease is immediately replaced with an invigorating youthful, vibrant soul-body and any issues they had on Earth quickly melt away.

Your departed pet will never be lost, scared, or all alone.

The next thing they experience is how it feels to be a non-physical energetic being.  Think about the astronauts in the gravity chambers. Weightless and unencumbered by Earth’s atmosphere and the laws of gravity they dart about in a cosmic burst of energy.

You may wonder what they do once they become non-physical and the answer is simple, anything they choose!

If they loved to run and play that is likely what they are doing. If they preferred to lounge around and nap on their favorite bed, then that is exactly what they will do. They check out their new surroundings with childlike wonder just as you will when you leave your body behind.

If images of rainbows, green fields, and sunlit skies bring some relief to your broken heart you can rest assured that the reality is they are usually content and joyfully watching over you from their favorite place. 


While their new energetic body can experience a multitude of spiritual adventures, there is one place in all the world where they spend most of their time. With you. 

​​You are the most important person in the world to your pet and there is nowhere else they would rather be.

Your pet can go anywhere they want and often tag along in the car, on vacation or wherever you go. Yet, they tell me they often follow the same routine they had with you here on Earth. Their experience is much different than ours. Their perspective is uplifting, positive, and full of love. You, on the other hand, are gripped by grief and the pain from your loss.

Your pet wants you to move into healing as soon as you are ready as they can feel your emotions and the pain from your grief. If you stay buried under a heavy blanket of grief your pets will not be harmed nor with their spiritual journey be affected but they truly benefit when you move into a healing space. In some cases, if you stay in your grief for too long, they can feel responsible for your pain.

The best thing you can do is to honor your feelings, as difficult as that can be. Within that space, celebrate their life and the time you shared. Make their life more important than their death. They don’t want you to remember them in their worst moments. Picture them being happy, healthy, and whole as you take your first steps into healing.

  1. Hi Karen, your books brought me peace when my heart was drowning. I have had many 4-legged babies over the years. It has always been soul-crushing to lose them as I loved them more than life itself.

    Most recently I had a set of brother cats who were my loving comedy routine. I knew I had done something karmically right to deserve such healing love bugs. They died within a year of each other, the last one in October 2019. In the meantime, I have this heroic 10ish yr old pitbull with an ability to make himself laugh and a new baby 50lb mix of pit and who knows what. She is exquisitely sensitive with a zany sense of humor and lives to give love and receive it.

    When my fiance and I kiss, she enters the kiss from the side ?. She sleeps between us just like the brother cats did. One morning she awoke convinced that there was something right next to her on the bed and scrambled frantically (as only she can do) to find it..did it disappear into the bed…wait is it on the wall…under the covers…where did it go?

    Even at that early morning hour my fiance and I both witnessed this. I think it was one of my brother cats or perhaps both maybe. The cats were named Gabriel and Raphael, our older pittie is Michael and the new baby girl is Saraphina….otherwise known as Gabey, Raphy, Mikey, and Sari. They are quite literally my team of angels.

    1. Thank you so much, Jane, for your kind words. I appreciate you more than you will ever knnow. It warms my heart and soul to know that I have been a part of your journey into healing when you have lost one of your precious babies.

      I can just picture the ‘scramble’ of trying to find what was on the bed! No doubt who it was!

      With love and light,
      Karen xoxo

  2. Just today was the second time my Dempsey came to visit. He passed on September 21, 2019. It felt more real than the first visit. I was just dozing off on the couch this morning when I heard a tapping so I picked up my head listened a little more carefully and heard my Dempsey eating his food in the kitchen like normal. I could hear him chomping away when finally I heard his little nail clicks on the floor ( God how I miss that sound ) and him coming around the corner with a playful little grunt. He came right up to me on the couch gave me his two front paws and let me scratch his chest and hug him. I needed that, I’m having such a hard time with his passing. Dempsey was my everything. His heart condition took him from me.

    1. I’m so sorry for the loss of your sweet boy, Dempsey. There are few words that ease the pain of a loss like yours. I have no doubt he was there having a snack and following his normal routine. We often discount these experiences as our imagination or willful thinking but these are true visitations as our departed pets are doing what they love…spending time with us!

      With love and light,
      Karen xoxo

  3. I read Karen’s books and visited her website to be a VIP and received free lessons and Karen sent a message of love to my little Benny. Her connection with Benny was spot-on correct and I have learned a lot. I have seen my Benny in spirit form a few times and I send him messages of love instantly I see his face. I have felt the presence of my guardian angel. I never believed there was an afterlife until I connected with Karen. I am truly grateful to Benny as I believe he directed me towards this belief and to Karen. If you truly believe and love your pet your connection will happen. I often hear Benny bark and I can feel his presence with me always. You can continue your relationship with your pet in the afterlife until that joyful day when you are reunited and are spirits together.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback about Benny’s messages. I believe that our departed loved ones guide us to those they know can help us on our journey. I’m so honored to be a part of your healing path with Benny.

      With love and light,
      xoxo Karen

  4. I have read Karen’s book – it is really wonderful. Even it is in English and my language is German, I understood it very good. I think Karen has an immense great knowledge of the spirit world. I never got a sign so far, well, not everybody has such abilities. But I know it is possible.

    1. Thanks, Renate! I really appreciate your kind words. I hope to have my books translated into German soon. Vielen dank!

  5. Hello, Karen. I have read your book, “The Amazing Afterlife of Animals” and I now know that my beloved kitty, Holly, of 20 years who passed on Nov. 16, 2018, exactly 1 month shy of 20 years with her, is always with me. I have washed every piece of clothing that I have ever worn and I still find, every day, one piece of her fur on anything I wear. I know it’s her way of showing me she is always with me which makes it so hard for me to ever adopt again. I wish she would just let me know in her own little way that it would be okay. I have never experienced such knee-dropping grief in all my life when I lost her.

    1. Thank you so much, for the kind words. I appreciate hearing every one of them. I am so sorry for your loss. Such profound grief is a reflection of the powerful bonds of love that will always connect you and your beloved kitty, Holly. In all these years of communicating with departed pets, not a single one has said, ‘Don’t adopt another pet.’ Rather, they want you to bring happiness and joy into your heart as they benefit directly from the love feel for your newly-adopted friends. Don’t hold back your happiness. I’m sure Holly wants you to live a life full of love, laughter, and happiness.

  6. My beloved kitty, Roswell, left our world after 16 years together. He was, and continues to be, the greatest teacher I have known in this life. He taught me how to receive and give unconditional Love between us, and others. A few weeks after his passing, turning in bed, I saw him laying just a few feet away, on the floor, facing away from me. I carefully moved closer, and could see individual strands of his fur. He slowly rose up on his feet, and leisurely walked to the bedroom wall, and disappeared. I believe he wished me to see his spirit self, and that all was well with him…

    1. Seeing something like that is such a gift. When we encourage them to send us signs they are near and then thank them for sending them they love that and tend to send more signs! Thanks for sharing that moment with us, Paul.

  7. I’ve had many afterlife experiences after one of my boys, Cash’s passing. Twice there was scratching on the inside of my bedroom wall, a little yellow butterfly was left at a memorial of another one of my boys, Captain, and there were feathers left in my backyard that formed the letter ‘C’ and others that are confirmed with sessions with Karen.

    It was Captain that led me to Karen in 2008, I was very skeptical about animal communication until our first session. I learned something that I would have never believed existed, talking with my boys on the other side, leaving signs and little things they do to let me know that they ‘are’ around. Karen truly is a Godsend and someone I can
    call a true friend. I have read both her books and the second book, ‘The Amazing Afterlife Of Animals’ really helps to cope with the loss of a pet and
    recommend it for anybody who has lost a pet.

    1. Your boys are doing a great job of letting you know they are around! I am constantly amazed at how many signs and messages they send you. I appreciate your kind words and friendship more than you will ever know. You are a blessing in my life, Frank. xoxo

  8. Karen, thank you so much for “The Amazing Afterlife of Pets”. We lost our 16 year old Millie 2 1/2 months ago and we still miss her every day, even though we feel her spiritual presence with us. We think Millie was a Jack Russell mix (she was a rescue) and the dog on the cover of your book looks a lot like our Millie after I shaved her for the summer, so as soon as my mother gave me this book I knew it would have messages I was meant to hear. I feel a lot of guilt about the way Millie died, even though I know it was her time, because she was alone and I worry that she had pain or fear in her last moments. Your book has helped me with this.

    I wish I could see Millie’s spiritual body as some people do, but at times I sense that she is with me. And there have been other signs too. For example, one day a neighborhood friend was walking to my house to return something. The children she was babysitting had their dog, who used to play with Millie, with them. When they neared my house their dog started jumping around like she had done with Millie, and then she ran down the driveway and behind the house like she was chasing another animal……but there was no other animal in sight!

    I look forward to reading other book so you have written. And hopefully Millie’s soul will return to us some day.

    1. I’m so sorry for your loss, Lynette. I can’t imagine how much you miss your sweet Millie. How special that she looks similar to the dog on the cover of ‘The Amazing Afterlife of Animals’. It must be especially difficult for you since you were not there when she transitioned. I think I would probably feel the same way. We can’t help it. They are our babies and we feel like we let them down in their final moments. But as you know from the book, what matters the most is the love and happiness you shared for those 16 years. That is what she wants you to think about. All those special memories.

      I’m sure Millie is there with you and playing with her little friend! That is so cool! Keep saying her name out loud, ask her to send you signs, then be grateful and thank her when she does. I’m working on the next book right now so you can read more about what happens on the Other Side.

      Thank you for your kindness and for sharing your thoughts and I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers for healing.

  9. Hi Karen, we have known each other for a long time now and oh, how much comfort your words bring to me.

    We lost our baby boy Blu this past Monday and I have been crying my eyes out. It is ironic how God gives us what we need when we need it. This morning your email was in my inbox, and it couldn’t have been at a more perfect time.

    Thank you, Karen, we are still grieving as our love was great, but I know Blu is ok. Love you, Kathy

    1. Kathy,
      My heart breaks for you for the loss of your sweet boy, Blu. There is no doubt in my mind we were meant to connect in this lifetime. Losing him must be a devastating loss and I hope I will continue to ease that pain for you. It has been an honor to be a part of your journey.

      With love and healing hugs,
      Karen xoxo

  10. Dear Karen:

    I lost my Beloved Sweet Pea on October 11, 2019, and to this day, I am still crying uncontrollably every single day and miss her with all my heart and soul.

    Sweet Pea was the Love of my life and my life…I have never felt so lost or so much pain. I read your book, “The Amazing Afterlife of Animals” immediately after she passed away and it was a comfort to read as well as read and receive your emails, blogs, and website with more detailed information as to what happens to our beloved pets when they pass away.

    I speak to Sweet Pea out loud every day and I hope and pray she can and does hear me. Thank you for sharing this most recent information, it is a big help to understand what happens and where they are and what they do. I hope that sometime soon, your schedule opens up so I can schedule that personal reading with you because I am so desperate to speak with my beautiful Sweet Pea girl.

  11. Good morning Karen!

    John from Tucson here again! I still miss my German Shepherd Hannah terribly even after a year and a half! I kiss her urn goodnight before I go to bed and touch her photo and say “good night baby girl!” She was so special to me and definitely my best friend!

    Anyway, I wanted to share a quick story. My son and I finally went to our local shelter about 6 months ago to find another to join our family. After looking at quite a few, my son called me over to look at a terrier mix (she actually has quite a few breeds mixed in, including 12.5 percent German Shepherd!). She had such sad but loving eyes and was just lying there with her face against her cage. I talked to her and she wagged her tail but when my eyes went up to her name card it was then I knew that not only would she be coming home with us, I knew that my Hannah had a hand (or paw!) in finding her.

    The name listed was Hannah! It was a moment that took my breath away!

    We changed her name to Mollie since Hannah was just the name the shelter had given her and she really responded when we suggested different names to her – so Mollie was it!

    She is quite a lover and a real character! I have no doubt that my Hannah saw that my heart was still aching and needed another to share my love with!

    I love your books and love you for helping me “see the light” again!

    Still looking forward to reaching out with you to talk to my baby girl but I’m loving again!

    Thanks so much, Karen!

    John

    1. I am so happy to hear this wonderful news!

      There is no doubt in my mind that your beloved, Hannah, had her paw in this and helped guide you to Mollie and to healing.

      Today I celebrate all of you!

      Thank you for sharing this very special moment with me.

      Karen xoxo

  12. Dear Karen,

    Your book did offer me some peace after losing my dog of 7 years. I still have so many things going through my head over his passing through. He got out and was hit by a car. I’m a vet tech and I rushed him to my hospital and did everything I could. It was only me and one doctor there. I’m so worried he doesn’t know how hard I tried to find him or if he knows I didn’t spend his last hour holding him because I was trying to save him. I miss him so badly. Everyday I help people say goodbye to the animals they love so much and I’m traumatized by the passing of my dog and how he must have felt and what he was thinking all day lost in the cold and then hurt from the accident. All I’ve done is cry. Your book did help but I’m still so broken.

    1. I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, Leah. I can’t imagine how devastated you must be. When accidents happen, our pets do not blame us or hold us responsible. Those are human thoughts and I’m sure your dog knows without a doubt that you did all you could to help him. I’ve had thousands of sessions with departed pets and not a single pet blamed their human parents for their passing especially when it was an accident. They talk about the happy times and some of the funny things they did or favorite memories of days gone by. Here is another post that may help you: https://animalcommunicating.com/are-you-punishing-yourself-for-your-pets-death/

      Only you can shift your perspective and realize that tormenting yourself doesn’t serve either of you and your dog will greatly benefit when you move from grief into healing. As you know from my book, The Amazing Afterlife of Animals, all that really matters is the love you share. Those bonds of love never die. Be gentle with yourself, you’ve suffered a terrible loss. Move into healing when you are ready and remember to make his life more important than his death.

  13. Hi Karen!
    I listened to your book on Audible recently and loved it. I needed it. I had to make the impossible decision to put my sweet little Fuzz to sleep. I never imagined it would be so difficult and was drowning in my grief. He passed Jan 9th and I prayed for a dream visit something I could acknowledge, and never received it.

    I had a dream about him but didn’t feel like it was a visit dream. Then one night, last week my other two cats were asleep at the bottom of my bed and I heard the sound of a cat jumping down off the bed (when their feet hit the floor)

    I looked down and both my cats were on the bed. I just sat up like, it couldn’t be!!! I wonder still if that was him. My other two cats won’t sleep on his spot on the bed either. I hope that means he is still there visiting!!

    Thank you for giving us an outlet and support to work through our grief.
    Xoxo

    1. Hi Kerry,
      Thank you so much for the kind words about my book, The Amazing Afterlife of Animals on Audible. I’m so glad it is helping you with the loss of your beloved, Fuzz. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. It is an impossible decision but one we make with the best of intentions for our fur-babies.

      That is so cool to hear about your afterlife visit!

      Don’t doubt it! Believe it! It is real and the more you acknowledge those visits the more it will happen. Be excited and thank Fuzz for making the effort to let you know he is near.

      There is nowhere else he would rather be than with you!

      Sending love and healing…

  14. Good evening, Karen,
    It’s 1:30 a.m. and I’ve been thinking of my sweet, Lily. I just needed reassurance about things so I am re-reading your emails.

    I am so glad you are writing another book focused on the Other Side. I know how much comfort The Amazing Afterlife of Animals brought me two years ago when my beloved, Shady, passed. I hope you will let us all know when your new books become available!

    It’s been two months since I lost Lily and my heart still aches. I lost her just as I was finally able to talk about Shady without crying. Despite all of her health issues for the past two years, Lily hung in there, I truly believe, until I was ready.

    Something amazing happened the day of and the day following her passing. You see, for as long as we had Lily (10 yrs), the vet always felt that Lily was just a bit off neurologically-speaking, she seemed to sometimes just be in a fog. Prior to us letting her go, I went to make arrangements with the crematorium. When I came out to my car, I noticed a large white feather stuck to the front wheel, the driver’s side…couldn’t miss it. Odd.

    After Lily’s passing that evening, I kept thinking and worrying that Lily wouldn’t understand how to let us know she was ok. I had signs from Shady in the past but I just wasn’t sure if Lily knew how to do it. I kept repeating to Shady, “I NEED you to please show Lily how to ‘talk’ to Mommy. You’re a smart boy, Shade. Show Lily how to do it”, literally until I fell asleep.

    The next bright, sunny afternoon, as I was purposefully sitting down at the opposite side of the table from where I used to sit (with Lily on a chair next to me), floating right in front me was the tiniest, daintiest little white feather! So small, in fact, that after I managed to pluck it from the air, I got a magnifying glass to confirm it was indeed a feather. YES!! I have absolutely NO doubt that it was from Lily, she KNOWS how to ‘talk’ to Mommy!! And I can’t help but feel that the large feather stuck to my car the day before was a message from Shady that I was doing what was best for Lily and maybe even perhaps, “Look for a feather, Mom.” There were signs all week!!

    I thanked Lily for letting me know each day and I thanked Shady for being a great teacher! I wouldn’t have considered or acknowledged moments like these if I had not read your book nor spoken with you, Karen. Thank you for opening my eyes and heart to receive those messages. Yhey’ve been tremendously comforting. I look forward to working with you again, Karen…I can’t wait to hear what Lily is up to!

    xoxo

    1. Linda,
      You are a very lucky lady to have such an amazing experience! There are many people who would do anything to get a sign, let alone signs that obvious! I am elated for you and so honored to be a part of your journey with Shady and Lily.

      The best part of my work is connecting with beautiful clients like you!

      Yes, I am working on the next book and it will be all about the afterlife and helping to heal broken hearts.

      Keep asking for more signs!

      xoxo Karen

  15. About 1.5 yrs after my sweet corgi transitioned, I attended an Alaskan cruise workshop with Brian Weiss, the past life regression doctor. While there we a took a long hike in the rainforests of Juneau. It reminded me of my dog Fergie and our daily walks off leash on a wooded trail. My husband took a commemorative photo of me on the trail. Once back home it took me awhile to go thru my vacation photos but once I did I could not believe my eyes! In the photo of me standing in the woods, you can clearly see my dog Fergie sitting at my feet in full color, as clear as day! I have the photo to prove it. She is right there with me 1.5 yrs after she passed. I only wish I could attach the photo for you to see it.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing this incredible moment with us! The photo you sent is amazing and proof that your Fergie was right by your side. Wow! I attended a conference with Dr. Brian Weiss many years ago when I first started my journey and it changed the way I viewed life, the afterlife, and past lives. It was a game-changer for me as I’m sure for you too. For anyone who questions whether their departed pets are still with them your photo would the solid evidence that they are right by our side.
