Do Animals Reincarnate?

In order to grow and evolve as souls, we opt to leave Heaven for lifetimes on Earth or other locations within the universe. The forms we take and the ways we look may change; however, our personalities remain the same. We travel together with our main soul groups, which are comprised of our closest friends and family members, including pets, to help each other with lessons and to provide support and love. As human beings, we usually wait for our loved ones on Earth to reunite with us in Heaven prior to reincarnating. The same is usually true for our pets; however, there are unique instances in which a pet can reincarnate more than once in our lifetimes.

An Important Part of Our Spiritual Families

Our pets are an important part of our spiritual family. They, too, reincarnate with us to provide companionship, love, and lessons for our souls. Their short lifespans on this planet provide them with the time and opportunities to be reunited with us more than once in our lifetimes. For this to happen, though, there must be a very strong bond between souls, as well as special reasons for the reincarnation of a beloved pet within our lifetimes.

Life Purposes for Animals

Animals have special purposes on Earth. Beyond the beauty of nature and how they support the Earth with their presence and activities, they are tasked with helping to teach us about unconditional love. They also teach us important lessons about grieving and death when they leave this world. They are unique souls who, at times, save lives and bring the healing our souls need. To me, these souls with special tasks present themselves as little angels on Earth who help us through the difficult times and were sent to us to intervene during times of great importance. Through meditations, I have been given insight into different forms these souls have taken in previous existences, including human forms. It is entirely possible for a soul to opt to take the form of a beloved pet in order to spend time with a soul on Earth and to help them, but not to live an entire human lifetime with them.

Deeper Spiritual Meanings

Beyond their supportive presence, there are spiritual meanings behind both wild and domesticated animals in our lives which provide messages and guidance from our Heavenly Support Team of God, the angels, past spiritual masters, spirit guides, and loved ones in spirit. Often, loved ones in spirit and the angels use the animals to send us messages. If you are repeatedly seeing a particular animal or if one makes its presence known to you in an unusual way, I recommend looking up the spiritual meaning of the animal, which is based upon its habitat, behaviors, and personality traits. For instance, the robin is often a sign of spring which points to new beginnings and growth.

When Pets Reincarnate

When a beloved pet reincarnates for another lifetime with us on Earth, their personality traits and behaviors are very similar to the way they were in their most previous lifetime; however, they are not an exact replica of personality traits and behaviors because as souls, they have evolved and grown. This is the same with all souls. Our experiences throughout our lifetimes and in Heaven expand our knowledge and provide deeper understanding about our existence.

Recently, I adopted a kitten named Panther from a local rescue. His personality traits and behaviors are strikingly similar to my cat, Shadow, who passed away in 2015. Panther came into my life at a time when I was not looking to adopt; however, I kept receiving very strong and repeated signs that he was the one for me. Having learned to listen to these promptings from my Heavenly Support Team, I made the decision to adopt him and welcome him into my home. When I first met him at the rescue, he was skittish and did not like to be held for long. Having rescued formerly feral cats in the past, I was used to this behavior and knew he just needed a little loving care and patience to help him be more comfortable with human interaction. Once I got him home, I kept him in a separate room to help him acclimate to his new surroundings and to give my other cats a chance to get used to his presence and scent in my home. After getting approval from my veterinarian, I gradually introduced him to my other cats. In what I consider to be a very short time, he was welcomed by them into the family. It was the quickest acceptance I have ever witnessed when integrating cats with one another. Not only that, Panther overcame his skittishness and is a very loving and sociable kitten who loves to be around people and loves to snuggle.

From the start, I kept getting the impression that Panther may be Shadow reincarnated. His mannerisms and behaviors are incredibly similar to Shadow’s. He even follows me wherever I go. When I asked my Heavenly Support Team if Panther was Shadow, the answer was yes. They also provided the insights about how Panther’s knowledge of his previous life was veiled from him in order to provide a new experience for his soul. My other cats in the home knew and loved Shadow. As with humans, they experienced the instant bond that comes with meeting a soul they have known previously, which is why the integration into the family was the smoothest I had ever witnessed. Even the name “Panther,” which he came with, was no coincidence as I used to refer to Shadow as my little panther.

When Shadow was living with me before, our bond was very strong from the start as I rescued him when he was two weeks old. As I nurtured him through those early weeks and throughout his life, he truly became my shadow as he followed me everywhere. I had always felt we had been together in past lives. Later in his life Shadow literally saved my life, for which I am eternally grateful. Part of his purpose was to be there for me when I needed him most, like an angel on earth. When he crossed over into Heaven, I grieved the loss of his physical presence here on Earth. It was time for my friend and angel to return to Heaven.

One last aspect I find absolutely intriguing is the small brown patch of fur on Panther’s front right shoulder which is the exact shape of a patch of lighter hair Shadow had on his front left shoulder due to a tumor that was removed. It is a perfect mirroring of a very unusual and specific marking on two very remarkable black cats.

The Many Lifetimes We Live Together

Both people and animals reincarnate for many lifetimes. We are all souls working our way through lessons together and we all serve a purpose in the bigger picture. The love we share bonds our souls in amazing ways and can even result in many loving lifetimes together.

Reincarnation: The Many Lives We Live

Reincarnation of our souls is the concept of the soul experiencing many lifetimes in different forms or physical housings. Our souls are made up of energy which take many forms throughout our existence. Heaven is where our souls are born, created directly through love from the omnipotent soul of God. It is here where we create plans for our spiritual journeys in the form of soul contracts for specific lifetimes. The soul contracts contain a plan in outline form for the lessons we will learn in the upcoming lifetime of our choosing. During the creation of these plans, we work with the members of our soul groups to integrate our plans in order to help one another learn the lessons agreed to in the contracts. It is important to note that the ways the lessons will unfold on Earth are not determined until we arrive here. Events are orchestrated in real time based on the lessons we agreed to prior to birth, as well as the freewill decisions we make and the resulting effects. It is an incredibly precise and complex process which is in place for every living being on Earth and for which there are innumerable outcomes.

Rising sun under the Earth planet, abstract backgrounds

There are many locations we can visit throughout the universe for different purposes and lifetimes. Earth is just one of the locations we can visit for a lifetime of lessons. Once we have completed our soul contracts, we return to Heaven, which is the hub from which we were created and to which we return after every journey. Our main soul groups, which include our immediate family and friends, regroup in Heaven. After a period of rest and relaxation, we determine where our next journeys will take place which will best suit our needs for the evolution of our souls. For the purpose of this article, I will focus on our experiences as human beings on a spiritual journey on Earth.

Why Leave Heaven for a Lifetime on Earth

 In Heaven, the experience for our souls is different. We learn lessons there, but not at the same pace as we do on Earth. Here, we have the gift of the human ego which propels learning through negativity. It acts as a challenge to humankind to learn how to manage this mechanism in our minds which is the source of our fears, regrets, anxieties, and doubts.

When we are born on earth, information about the soul contract we agreed to in this lifetime is veiled from us in order to provide the opportunity to learn without bias. The information, also known as our Akashic Records, is stored in our souls, as well as in the Hall of Records in Heaven. Portions of the records can be accessed through spiritual means, such as past life regressions, meditations, and more. The records contain all our individual soul contracts and experiences for all our lifetimes in the past and the current lifetime, as well as information in outline form about potential lessons for future lifetimes.

A Lifetime on Earth is the Accelerated Course for Soul Evolution

Our journey through a lifetime on Earth is what I refer to as the accelerated course for soul evolution. The experiences we have here are designed to maximize our learning opportunities through situations which challenge all our knowledge and beliefs about ourselves, our world, our existence, each other, the universe, God, Heaven, and more. It is a journey of rediscovery about the information contained within our souls which contains all the answers we seek. It takes hundreds, if not thousands, of lifetimes to grow as a soul.

Younger Souls and Older Souls

Younger souls have the tendency to operate more from a place of fear because they have not learned how to manage the human ego and do not yet realize that love is the reason for our existence. Lower level energies, such as selfishness and greed, tend to occupy the thought processes of younger souls, which leads them to take actions that are harmful to themselves and others. In contrast, older souls operate more from a place of love and often put others before themselves. Some of their lessons include learning how to establish a balance of giving and receiving. When on a truly accelerated path, older souls tend to go through very difficult and challenging experiences early in life in order to get them up to speed with what they need to accomplish later in life.

On Earth, our experiences are intertwined. Older souls help younger souls with life lessons and younger souls help older souls with life lessons. Each of us helps one another through our journeys through the cause and effect of our actions and the circumstances we are presented with. The decisions we make determine whether we learn the lessons we are meant to learn. If a lesson has not been completed, it will return with a different set of circumstances until we have gained the necessary knowledge for our souls.

Because we are on different levels of soul evolution, it means that not everyone will understand or grasp the concepts about our existence in this lifetime. This does not mean older souls are better than younger souls, as all souls have their individual purposes. As we grow from a child to an adult in life, we attend school to learn. The same process happens with our souls through many lifetimes. Each lesson we learn helps us move forward with the evolution of our souls and the time when our souls will be reintegrated with God.

Evidence of Past Lives

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the great composer, was a child prodigy who could replay a song after hearing it once and who composed complex music scores at a very young age. When a soul exhibits the ability to complete intricate new tasks with great ease, it is a sign the soul lived many lifetimes and has performed similar tasks in those other lifetimes with great skill. These residual experiences are stored within the memory of the soul and can also be triggered by similar circumstances in our current lifetime. The information is not limited to skill sets. It also contains experiences that deeply affected the soul, enough to cause a carryover into this lifetime. For instance, an unexplained fear of fire or water in which the soul has not had an experience in this lifetime to cause it may be able to be traced back to experiences in past lifetimes. In some instances, it is a foreshadowing of events to come.

Have you ever experienced an instant connection with someone upon your first meeting with them? This may be because of a connection in a past lifetime or in Heaven. Are you drawn to specific cultures, music, activities, locations, and events from history? One or more of your past lifetimes may have included experiences from these times. Have you ever been somewhere and felt you had been there before, even though it is your first visit? Again, this may be a reference to a previous lifetime in which you spent time in this location.

There are fascinating stories about toddlers talking about people and places in history for which they would have no previous knowledge. They do it with such detail that it cannot be confused with anything other than a past life experience. Other toddlers and very young children refer to how they met or knew their deceased grandmother or grandfather in Heaven. These memories of the soul are strong for the young children because they have just come from Heaven. Unfortunately, by the age of five, most of these old memories have faded as new memories begin filling the mind with current life experiences.

Past Life Regressions

There are many ways to delve into our souls to rediscover past life experiences. One of the ways to do this is to perform or experience a past life regression. This practice is usually performed by a medium trained to use their gifts to receive information about past lives. You can also use your own meditation time as an opportunity to ask to have past life information revealed. Ask your spirit guides for assistance with the process and remain open and objective to everything you see, feel, hear, taste, and smell during your meditation. The information will provide clues and glimpses into some of your past lives, as well as your connections with your immediate soul groups. Within meditation journeys, you may discover the different roles and genders you experienced which provided elements of knowledge that deepen your appreciation for people from all walks of life.

Soul Connections

Throughout our existences as souls, we are connected to one another through the love within the hearts of our spirits. The experiences we share create a powerful bond which stays with us through this lifetime and beyond. For now, make the most of the time you have on Earth and look toward situations you encounter as opportunities to learn and grow as a soul. Appreciate those around you as you are all on this journey together, helping one another to evolve on a spiritual level.
