The road to healing can be a long and painful journey causing you extreme emotional upheaval, loss of appetite, insomnia, and waves of guilty feelings. Each of us has a different experience and your journey will be unique to your situation. There are no shortcuts through grief and only you are able to shift your perspective and begin healing. Take your time, be kind and gentle with yourself, and honor your feelings no matter how painful they are.
Deep grief is a reflection of the deep bonds of love you share with your pet so it is only natural to feel intense pain, sorrow, and loneliness when you lose your best friend. You've suffered a tremendous loss and that hurts beyond belief. You may also feel guilt, remorse, or shame if things did not end the way you hoped. Carrying those heavyweight emotions is how you punish yourself for the decisions you made or for how things ended. What is so important to realize is your pet does not see things the same way you do.
In over 21,000 pet sessions, I've never had a single departed pet tell me that their human caretaker should feel guilty about how their life ended. Not one single pet has ever said that they wanted their beloved mom and dad human-guardians to suffer for days, months, or years after their passing. Not a single one. This is a self-imposed form of punishment we place on ourselves and it is not how the animals feel.
Professional grief counselors can help you on your journey if you are feeling stuck or overwhelmed with grief and there are many online or local support groups you can join. If you are feeling stuck or overwhelmed, there is no shame in seeking help from a professional.
Your beloved pets want you to heal as soon as you can as they benefit from the energy you radiate. When you move into healing and release the pain from grief, you send powerful waves of loving, positive energy out into the Universe. Since your departed pet loves you more than anything else in the world, they benefit from all of that beautiful energy.
I've always said a session is not a cure for grief and you do not need to me communicate with your departed pet. Your connection with your pet is one that has existed for many years, and in some cases, many lifetimes. You are and always will be the most important person in the world to your pet and they want you to move into healing as soon as you can.
