Shannon came to see me at a metaphysical fair in Colorado. I’d talked to her dogs and her cat before;
including Sam – her Great Pyrenees mix dog.
We’d talked to Sam in the past about aggressive tendencies toward people, dogs and objects like bouncing balls. Despite Sam’s odd behavior at times, Shannon and her family adored Sam and most of the time, he was a sweet and loving dog.
That day at the fair, however, Shannon only wanted to talk to Sam.
As soon as I connected with Sam, he said, “I am so sorry I was such a bad dog.”
I could feel his anguish, sadness and remorse very strongly. When Shannon heard this, she began to cry.
She then told me that Sam’s aggression had gotten out of control. He had attacked both Shannon and her son and had injured them both in completely unprovoked attacks. Shannon felt she had no choice but to put Sam down because he was unpredictable and dangerous.
We asked Sam what had happened — why did he attack Shannon and her son?
What I felt from Sam, when he showed me what happened before and during the attacks, was complete mental shut down, loss of connection to reality and complete inability to control his actions. Sam showed me that he was fine one second and “not there” the next — like his consciousness wasn’t even present when the attack occurred.
Sam showed me that there was no cause, no provocation for the attacks — it was like a switch being thrown and he went from being a sweet, loving dog to a very dangerous animal in the blink of an eye.
Shannon confirmed that this was exactly what happened. Shannon said she was sitting on the couch watching TV, not moving — Sam was on the floor at her feet facing her — when Sam suddenly launched himself at her.
Thankfully Shannon’s husband was able to grab Sam by the collar and drag him off of Shannon or her injuries could have been even worse. Sam attacked Shannon’s son in a similar way.
Sam was extremely upset about the attacks — I felt his fear when he lost control, his shame and anger when he realized what he had done, his guilt and sorrow that he had hurt the people who loved and trusted him.
He kept saying how sorry he was, that he was a bad dog and kept replaying the events over and over to me.
He said was glad that they had put him down — he didn’t want to hurt anyone else and he knew he couldn’t control himself.
We tried to reassure Sam that his family would love him always, forgave him and only wanted him to be at peace.
But Sam was in extreme emotional distress. Every time I came back to him to ask another question or tell him something, Sam again re-played the events and expressed his extreme shame, fear, sorrow and guilt for what he had done.
This level of extreme distress is not normal for souls that have crossed to Spirit — even animals who have experienced abuse do not have this extreme emotion when they tell me about what has happened to them.
They remember the events, they have feelings about the events — but the “sting” of the emotions is no longer there,
they have an attitude of peace and understanding about what happened.
Sam’s level of extreme emotion and inability to have perspective on what happened is something that I have experienced with souls that are “stuck” — meaning animals (or people) who no longer have a living body, but who are not fully crossed to Spirit either. This is a state of continuous emotional agony — not somewhere that any soul should have to remain.
I asked Sam “where” he was — he showed me that he was at the vet’s office. It was clear he knew he did not have a physical body, yet he was anchored in that location. He was not “haunting” the vet’s office, but his Spirit couldn’t leave there — he was “stuck”. Sam was clearly frantic to let his family know how was sorry he was about what happened and was frantic to get back to them.
I told Shannon what Sam had said and that I felt he was “stuck”. I told her I could help Sam cross to Spirit with her permission. With tears in her eyes, Shannon said, “Please help him — I knew something wasn’t right.”
I sent Sam unconditional loving energy and told him that he couldn’t connect with his family, release his guilt and sorrow or visit with his family as a Spirit until he crossed to Spirit. I had to repeat this several times before Sam was able to “hear” me, but he finally did. I told him that he could cross to Spirit whenever he was ready and he slowly calmed down, releasing the extreme emotions. Finally, I asked Sam if he was ready to cross to Spirit and he said yes.
I asked him if he would like me to ask another animal from Spirit to come to and help him cross over — Sam said, “Can you send someone, please?.” I then saw a reddish-brown, long haired dog with Sam.
The next image I saw was Sam and the reddish-brown dog running up a green, grassy hill into a beautiful sunrise, which is the image animals always show me as they cross to Spirit.
At the top of the hill Sam looked back and said thank you to Shannon and to me for helping him to be at peace.
As Sam and the other dog ran over the hill to the other side, I was filled with the most intense feelings of love, joy, peace and freedom — this is what animals show me is the feeling that those who cross to Spirit feel every moment they are in Spirit.
As I shared what Sam had told me and shown me with Shannon, including the image of the reddish-brown dog who came to help Sam cross to Spirit, Shannon began to cry again. She said she knew, in her heart, that the dog who came to help Sam cross to Spirit was their golden retriever, Baeron, who had crossed to Spirit years ago.
I connected with Sam again, now safely in Spirit. His energy was calm and peaceful. He thanked Shannon for her love and forgiveness and expressed his love for her and the family. Shannon and I both shed tears of gratitude that Sam was finally free.
