Animals in Spirit: Our Faithful Companions' Transition to the Afterlife

by Penelope Smith (Author)

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly
Those who live with and love animals dread the moment when their beloved
companions will leave them. Smith, an animal communicator for more than 30
years, and author of two books on talking with the creatures, provides a unique
and detailed account, from the animals' perspective, on the ways they transition
from the physical to the spiritual realm. Smith discusses the timing of their
departure, their feelings about living in the spirit realm, and reincarnation.
Stories that recount individual experiences with animals on earth as well as the
spirit realm are most of the book, including ones about animals who want their
humans to know that they didn't suffer in dying, that they may have actually
orchestrated their death for a particular reason, that they forgive any wrongs
or that they are planning to come back in another form. Perhaps most helpful is
the chapter in which animals counsel their human friends not to grieve for them
but to seek joy instead. For those new to animal communication, Smith includes a
short instructional chapter. Readers open to Smith's claims about animal
communication or who grieve departed furry friends will find much in these pages
to offer comfort and hope.

"Penelope beautifully and humbly travels the spiritual life and death span of
animal beings, discovering, to no surprise, that theirs is much the same as that
of human beings."- Jeri Ryan Ph.D., clinical psychologist and animal

"The most beautiful and moving spiritual adventure I have ever encountered. What
an affirmation of the miracle of life!" -- Patricia Graham

"Penelope shares benefi cial, though somewhat controversial, insights. Her
wisdom and compassion shine through this profound book. Read it and awaken to
healing perspectives about our kindred spirits and how we can all live together
in pure love." -- Allen M. Schoen, D.V.M., author of Kindred Spirits
