The Healing Power of Pets and Dreams (Part 4)

Two days after Baby died a tiny wooden box and card arrived from the vet. The card contained a poem that touched my heart and explained it all.

The poem stated that just this side of heaven is a Rainbow Bridge. A pet that dies travels the bridge to the other side where it joins other animal friends and frolics in lush meadows. They are healthy and playful again, as we remember them from days gone by. Then the day comes when our pet suddenly stops playing and looks into the distance, alert, eager, body quivering in anticipation….Your pet will suddenly recognize you and run to greet you. There will be a joyous reunion, as you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.


Animals help bring back the innocence and wonder of life and reconnect to inner joy that is “Who We Are.” When we are training them, they are teaching us how to be in control of our environment. When we train with love, we grow into a higher vibration. When we move into a higher vibration, we can overcome illness and connect to our dream state for Inner guidance. Our pets are incredible teachers.

As I place the tiny wooden box of ashes above the fireplace, I hear a muffled bark followed by the sound of a belled toy in the hallway, and my sadness lifts as the room fills with love. A smile embraces my broken heart. Baby’s back.

Like a typical cat, Baby Cakes must have used the Rainbow Bridge to find his way home to get his toys and to let me know that he is happy and healthy again.  Maybe I’ll get to play with him tonight in my dreams.
