Pet Mediums: Can Dogs and Cats Sense Spirits?
all seen dogs bark at “nothing” and cats swat at things we can’t seem
to see ourselves, which begs the question: is there such a thing as pet mediums? And can our animals sense spirits we can’t feel? The answer may surprise you.
as with humans, some pets may be able to sense spirits or other-worldly
beings that others cannot, said clairvoyant and metaphysical expert
Christine Agro, so that spooky stare your dog gives shadows may be a
sign of something we can’t see.
says the ability for pet mediums to sense and see spirits depends on
two things—their consciousness, or level of awareness, and age. Having
one, or both, of these dynamics can make these abilities possible. The
biggest sign to determine if our pets are sensing things we can’t is if
they follow something undetectable to the human eye. Another sign an
animal may be detecting a spirit is barking, hissing or fur raising on
their back, neck and tails out of fear.
pet “sixth senses” can extend to knowing if their owners have had
accidents or died, knowing when something negative (a trip to the vet,
say) is about to happen and sensing an owner or harmful intruder’s
arrival, according to an article in The Daily Mail.
says these senses in pets are the same as a human’s ability to open
ourselves to the belief in something more—we all can do it, but most of
us don’t. Some animals have a higher level of awareness of things
around them and are more conscious of their behavior and the effect it
has on others.
another factor, can determine if animals can sense spirits. Agro says
that when animals become closer to death, the veil between worlds can
thin and more often than not, they can begin to see things their owners
can’t or do not see. Depending on an animal’s reaction to becoming a
pet medium, there are a few things their owners can do to help them,
a pet seems at ease with their behavior, there’s not much for an owner
to do. However, if your pet seems frightened by things that aren’t
there Agro suggests working with an animal psychic or keeping flower
essence on hand to help shift your pet’s energy. She recommends giving
pets five drops of rock rose, which helps boost courage and mimulus,
which helps shift and ease fears, orally three times a day. There are
no side-effects of taking these essences, she says, and are a safe,
natural ways to help heal animals. She also suggest using a thunder
shirt—a weighted shirt used to soothe animals during storms—that can
help make animals feel more safe, which they may need when sensing a
pet medium behavior like this develops in older animals, it may be time
to prepare for the passing of your pet. Agro sees this as a time to
comfort and support your cat or dog.
they release their hold on this world, their ability to see the other
side deepens,” she said. “It’s a time [for you and your pet] to
celebrate your life together and prepare yourself for their transition.”
