“I get so upset when I see dead animals by the side of the road — is there anything I can do to help them?”
Whether the dead animal is a wild animal or a domestic animal, most of us react the same way — we feel sad for a life cut short and ended so violently . . . we wish there was something we could do to help.
I always encourage people to send love to the spirit of the animal, to visualize the animal’s spirit surrounded by White Light (or whatever color feels right to you) and to ask whatever Higher Powers you believe in to help the animal’s spirit successfully cross over.
Because of my connection to the animals, I often find spirits of animals killed on the road asking me for help. The feeling starts in my 3rd eye — a persistent feeling that needs attention — and it does not let up until I make connection to the animal. It’s like the animal’s spirit is suddenly there in the car with me.
The first time I experienced this, it was more than a little surprising. It doesn’t happen with every animal, only those whose spirits have left their bodies, but have not crossed to Spirit. This is not an unusual occurrence when a death is sudden and traumatic, as in a road accident. When the animal spirits demand my attention, I do what needs to be done to release them so they can cross to Spirit.
A few years after I started talking to animals, I had a particularly vivid experience with this. I was driving west on Rt. 80 in Pennsylvania. It was the beginning of dusk — still quite light, but not bright day. I came over the top of a low rise and I saw on the road ahead of me a black triangle — the near edge of it went all the way across the road, then tapered to a point on the edge of the right shoulder of the road. I looked ahead to where the far point of the triangle terminated and I saw a bundle of . . . dead animal. The only clue that told me this was a deer was one single hoof that was undamaged.
At that moment, I crossed into the black triangle. It was like I was inside a movie. I saw and felt what the deer experienced . . . the giant semi tractor trailer slamming into the deer/me as the deer/I bounded across the highway, being dragged for what felt like an eternity, the deer’s body/my body jammed between the front bumper and the wheels, eventually chewed up and spit out by the giant wheels . . . the pain, the shock, the unending terror. As I passed the remains of the deer, the vision stopped — and I was again driving my car. I was so shaken up by this experience that I had to pull over and calm my shaking body. I looked back over the road — there was no black triangle visible.
When I stopped shaking and could be calm again, I realized I had to help the spirit of the deer, who was clearly “stuck”. Taking a deep breath, I connected to the deer’s spirit.
The deer was in panic and agony — she couldn’t understand why this had happened and kept re-living the experience over and over. I sent the deer unconditional love, White Light and compassion for what felt like a very long time. Finally, I felt the deer begin to calm. I told the deer that she needed to cross to Spirit. She said, “I can’t stay here, can I? It doesn’t do any good to stay here, does it?” I told her no, that she would be much better off if she crossed to Spirit. I showed her what the animals always show me they feel when they cross to Spirit — the feelings of the most intense love, peace, joy and freedom. I told her that is what awaited her if she could cross to Spirit. Finally, she said she was ready to cross to Spirit. I asked her if she could cross alone, or if she wanted me to call for another animal spirit to go with her. She asked for another animal spirit . . . and a rabbit appeared. I watched the vision of the spirits of the deer and the rabbit as they ran up the green, grassy hill into the sunrise. As they crested the hill, I knew she was safe in Spirit.
Then I connected with the doe in Spirit. She said she was sorry she had waited so long — that Spirit was a beautiful place — “the most beautiful place there is.” She said no one should have to suffer as she had when she was killed and then “stuck”, unable to cross to Spirit. I promised her that whenever I found an animal who was “stuck” that I would do everything I could to help them cross to Spirit. She thanked me and said, “We all thank you”.
I continue to help release animals to Spirit when they are “stuck” whenever they come to me for help. If you feel moved to do so, please do what you can to help them too!
