A reader asks:
My questions are about our pets.
We've had many cats and dogs over the years and a few I really felt a strong connection with.
Our last dog was like a child to me and I even told my husband, to his surprise, that she was my "soul mate." It took me around two years to get over her passing. NO MORE PETS FOR US, unless one finds its way to our doorstep. Then I'd believe it was meant to be.
I believe Erik [Medhus? We'll go with that assumption] said that some souls reincarnate as animals, sort of like a "break" from being a human.
(Questions are hereafter numbered to match responses & replies from The Committee]
By the way I was so glad when I read that all animals have guardian angels. I can understand it. Most pets have more unconditional love than some humans. Sorry if some of these questions don't make sense. It's somewhat confusing to me. (Any other or more info is welcomed.)
Editorial sidebar comment: If a question or statement doesn't make sense, this is usually (not always) the responsibility of the listener / reader. Even if otherwise, expressions & injections of sorrow do not apply. The reader's much welcomed effort to compose & send such questions (being, among other things, a personal compliment) needs not be followed with offerings of sorrow. If society's offended snowflakes have achieved a goal of reflexively and constantly saying sorry when it rarely applies to circumstances, freako weirdo me isn't permitted among such an illustrious, socially erudite group. Even a simple, old fashioned "...pardon me..." is usually too much. The questions are perfectly sensible
With small weight off the chest, the mind cleared and a few feathers ruffled maybe, we can proceed to answers from O Comitê:
(Bias & slant disclosure: I grew up with two brothers, no sister and three dogs starting at age 4 until about 20. A dry spell until 26 and marriage has been followed by five cats (Heavenly residents now) and a dog still kicking at >13 years young. A dozen years of canine ↔ double feline overlap occurred, starting in 2010)
1. Greetings pets, owners and fellow souls, we say, many souls have been one, the other or both. The differences between what humans consider animals, pets, humans or other physical beings such as trees, is not as broad as it seems on & from Earth. This is not to say humans are animals or vice versa, for we understand the differences are enormous, but from the perspective of your soul in your natural home, the differences are but minor and always temporary.
An example we offer; it might be common to call a violent and dangerous repeat human offender an animal, however animals so rarely seek, attack then kill for emotion, a member of their own group, species or tribe. Humans do this to other humans almost exclusively when it happens; which beings are the true animals? The borders between shift and blur with changing definitions.
Yes, many incarnated souls have a human Earth surface incarnation as an animal of the wild variety, or a domesticated version such as livestock or pet of the many sorts, including the reverse.
2. Almost always, yes.
3. Yes, this is not rare. The pet sometimes incarnates as human, the human later incarnates as an animal by the human definition.
4. No humans, animals or other Earth surface beings live in Heaven as you do on Earth. The human perception and memory of Heaven in cases of near-death visits, seem to offer humans, animals and Earth surface environments, both man-made or otherwise, but this occurs only because the soul shall return to the dull, blurred gray world Earth offers.
We now add more information as asked and suggested, these are wonderful interpretive questions about Heaven observed through human experience filtration. We congratulate you and everyone who sees such enquiries as making sense, good evidence that human incarnation is a success. The farthest and more quickly a human falls —or seems to— in reality the greater, higher and faster s/he rises. The view, perception and appreciation of this effect operates on a time delay; everything does in Earth's surface time illusion.
